I was riding pretty high as I finished up Ivan, so I decided to give freehand a go. I wanted to put something on the top armor plate, either a Khadoran anvil or the 5th Border Legion icon. I like the latter more, fitting in with the theme and all, so I fished out the Kodiak for reference and got to work.
I started by laying down a base red blood drop sort of thing. This is a shape I have a decent amount of practice with thanks to years of Blood Angels.
The second step was the actual red color. Red is much easier to do in a couple layers.
Then I roughed in the 5 with some sort of bronze, whatever I was using on Ivan.
