Horus Heresy 30k Adeptus Custodes #1

The Burning of Prospero box also released some of the most awaited miniatures, with the Adeptus Custodes. Here is how my efforts have progressed, so far.


I opted for Guardian Spears on my Custodes and  I am still very far from finishing.







Now to get this gold, I followed a similar recipe to what I previously used for the Sisters of Silence.
  1. Primer - Stynylres Black Primer coat
  2. Base - Spray VGA Brassy Brass directly from below the miniature
  3. Base - Spray VGC Steel as a zenithal layer from above
  4. Layer - Highlight from below with VGA Bright Bronze 
  5. Layer - Highlight with VGA Polished Gold from above, like a zenithal highlight. 
  6. Shade - Shade with the new Agrax Earthshade Gloss.
  7. Highlight - Finally come back in and edge highlight with VGC Gold and VGC Metal Medium 50/50 mix.
I am still working through how I want the spear to look, as these guys are pretty much just a single color. I need something to offset this, purples and blues. And I'll need to come up with some type of some type of basing scheme for them too.

More to come.
