Horus Heresy Characters - Master of Mankind - The God Emperor of Mankind #1

So I am working on a Narrative campaign, where Malcador takes a group of Custodes and Sisters of Silence through the Webway on Earth looking for the Emperor. As part of this, I had to make a representation of the Emperor. This is the progress, thus far. 

 I am trying to base him off this popular depiction.

So when I started out on this kit-bash, I took a moment to contemplate the size of God Emperor. Ofter he is reported to appear as all things to all men. Different, yet similar, whatever he wanted you to think he looked like. However there is one thing that is never really made clear, his height. Given he is pre-post human hyper man, nor Primarch, I am guessing he would have been tall for a human, but not quite Primarch, in stature. Given this I started with the following:

Head: Blood Angels with a laurel Legs: Custodes Torso: CustodesRight Arm: Lord CelestantLeft Arm: Prospero MkIII Armor Power FistScrolls and leather pteruges: Lord CelestantChest: Bits from Blood Angels and Dark Angel…

Horus Heresy 30k and Thousand Sons #11

So this little project has dragged on a little longer than originally anticipated. After painting this Sergeant I didn't like the helmet detailing, so I stripped it back and started it again. Here it the progress, so far, second time round.

Still a LONG way to go on this one, but I am more happy with helmet the progress, thus far.

More to come.

XII Legion World Eaters Leviathan Siege Dreadnought - Complete.

Horus Heresy 30k World Eaters Apothecaries Medicae #2

So after the original paint job, then the paint strip effort, this is the progress on these two Apothecaries.

Plenty more work to do on them. More to come.

Glad to finally finish this one off. Turned out alright, hey ?

Table Top Gaming - Terrain - Craters #1

When I dug out those resin Generator pieces, I stumbled upon some old Pegasus Hobbies Craters. So I thought I would give one a whirl and paint it up whilst the airbrush was out. Here is the progress, thus far, with just primer, base layers and a  few blends to bring the grey crater to life.

What do you think I should do for the outside of the crater?

Logan Grimnar kit-bash #8

With rumors of Logan Grimnar's demise proving to be premature, I felt I should dust off this old kit bash I was working on about a year ago. 

i will use the correct base size, when I finalize the positioning. But until then, I should get some paint on these bad boys.

Table Top Gaming - Terrain - Shield Generators #1

I was digging about my bits box and found a pair of these shield generator, power coil resin bits. They're made by Secret Weapon Miniatures. Here is the progress, so far.

So these pieces come from their Masterclass Terrain series. Two Generators in this set, and another set you can buy comes with a control console, that clips into the main generator piece.

I am still trying to work out what colour I want the power coils to be, maybe green or a red. And I might have to investigate how object sourced lighting (OSL) works.

More to come on this.

Horus Heresy 30k World Eaters Apothecaries Medicae #1

I started working on a pair of Apothecaries. The idea is that they will split up and hang with the two squads Red Butcher's squad in their Spartans.

I found a great article in Angel Giraldez's latest Masterclass on painting cracked leather, similar to the recent White Dwarf article, but a little more manageable with a stipple brush. 

Follow the progress on this one, should be good.

Horus Heresy 30k World Eaters Leviathan Dreadnought #5

Some progress on the Leviathan, this weekend. Started working on the arms.

The head is not yet finalized, so I haven't attached the carapace.

You can probably see that the Siege Drills still need to be finished and further weathering completed. Some grass tufts need to be added to the base too.

More to come.

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.
Primer - Stynylres Black Primer coatBase - Spray VGA Brassy Brass directly from below the miniatureBase - Spray VGC Steel as a zenithal layer from aboveLayer - Highlight from below with VGA Bright Bronze Layer - Highlight with VGA Polished Gold from above, like a zenithal highlight. Shade - Shade with the new Agrax Earthshade Gloss. 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 …
