First go at some Forgeworld shoulderpads

I got some Forgeworld shoulderpads for my terminator squad. I'm going to make a mixed unit, part Space Wolves, part Salamanders, part my own chapter.

What you see in the picture is the first go at the Space Wolves shoulderpads. I still need to clean it up a bit in order to make it final, but I'm pretty happy with the result. The only thing I'll do differently is go straight for silver metal rune plates instead of what I did here. I tried to make them gold, but then I realized that the contrast will be quite weak (hence the brown rune writing).
If those were normal pads, I would go again with the color over them, but as the rune writing is so thin, another layer of any paint might ruin it forever.
