+ Tutorial + . I get asked a lot about my paint schemes and so have decided to do a quick step-by-step. It's the same scheme I use for my vehicles and dreadnoughts as well. . Step 1: a base of Kabalite Green, watered down a little bit, usually in two coats. . Step 2: a 60:40 mix of Kabalite Green and Sybarite Green with a healthy dose of Lahmian Medium applied as a layer onto the raised areas of the armour. . Step 3: a fine edge highlight of Sybarite Green. . Step 4: a wash of Coelia Greenshade mixed with Lahmian Medium. The medium is a god send and really reduces the shininess of the wash for a nice matt finish.
+ Chaplain Gurak + Leading the Reavers is Gurak, a desciple of Maloghurst, groomed in the warrior lodges of the Word Bearers, he now arrives at Balak's company to serve as a conduit for the taint of Chaos. He has already established a lodge of his own within the company, much to Balak's disgust. He would perish in the Solar War and would never land on Terra, but whether felled by the guns of the enemy, or slain by Balak, will never be known for sure.
+ Reavers + The epitome of the Cthonic predatory style of warfare. . By the time Balak had reached the Sol System, many of the XVI's companies found elements of the 1st Company seeded throughout their ranks. They served as the eyes and ears of the Warmaster's emissary, Mologhurst. Such a move was indicative of the mistrust that had spread throughout the traitor legions.
+ Reavers + The test model for my Reavers is complete except for transfers and basing. I have a full squad of 10 of these on the bench that I can now crack on with. Then it is only another 10 Tactical Marines, 10 Legion Support, another Contemptor and my Captain Balak: Revised. So, you know, not a lot to do before my wife gives birth in two weeks... To you knew dad's out there: how do you find the time?!
+ Baraqu + Legionary Amon is finished as far as construction is concerned. I gave him a bionic leg for good measure. Now I turn my mind to basing and paints scheme. I'm thinking the dry desert of the Pacific Basin. Baraqu awaits. It is Unity or Death.
+ Osgothi Squad + Work has begun on another squad for the XVI, this time I've build a legion support squad equipped for void-combat. Led by Sergeant Kallas, a ruthless and cruel Astartes who walks a step ahead of the rest of his company along the path to damnation. I did a little fluff post for these guys as well, link in the bio. Lupercal!
+ Lord Brogya + The lord of Clan-Dogr is built alongside two of his warriors. These guys are now ready for paint, but I'm still wrestling with what palette to use. Still, it is a long road across Terra. Baraqu awaits.
+ Blood Corps + The first few test-minis for a new project are finished, the paint scheme is now set. The Blood Corps will be the nemisis of my Cadian Last and will form the majority of the forces of Chaos that are vying for control of Boreas, led by the Apostate-Warlord Xiah Hesh. I wanted these troops to look more disciplined than a cultist rabble but still more ad hoc than the Imperial forces. I am really pleased with how they turned out and can't wait to tuck into more of them, hopefully they will grow alongside my Cadians. All thoughts welcome! Death to the False Emperor!
+ Baraqu + The second of my Clan-Dogr warriors is complete, ready to scour Old Terra for Baraqu. This collaborative project has really kick started my passion for this hobby again and it was an absolute honour to be asked to join in - there's some real talent coming your way from the other guys. I've also been writing some fluff pieces for the project, a link for which is in the bio. All feedback welcome folks, I'm in unchartered waters here!
+ Baraqu + I was extremely lucky to have the immensely talented @paulfriedrichvonbargen kindly offer to send me an example of the poseable Astartes body and legs that he's been working on. All strictly for personal use I should say! The opportunity to put this awesome kit to use in my Unification-Era collaboration project was too good to pass. So here is my early Astartes, First Legion, a scout for the forces of Unity. C&c welcome on this one, this is by far the most ambitious project I've worked on. Unity or Death!
+ Baraqu + The clans of Alba were tempered by permanent nuclear winter. This, alongside intermittent conflicts with the Nordyc tribes to the North and the lands of the Franc to the south, had bred feirce and proud warriors. Amongst the toughest of these are the warriors of Clan-Dogr. Here is a WIP of my clan-lord for my Unification Era warband. Techno-barbarians are a lot of fun!
+ Baraqu + Another mutant for Reck's scrap-hunter crew. A fairly basic conversion of a brilliant FW sculpt. Not sure how he'd stand up to a Thunder Warrior in an even fight. But then Reck's crew has never fought an even fight.
