The Lord of Drakes

Heya people.

It’s been a while since I last posted something. I am very sorry. The last year has seen some major troubles, domestic and personal, so I had little time and motivation at that point to keep this up. But I am back, alive and kicking, and to jump right in, I got something for you.

halfway through this week I finished my next Primarch model. Here’s Vulkan, Lord of Drakes, the Promethean Son, Primarch of the XVIIIth Salamanders Legion.

First things first. THE DETAILS!!!! There are a lot on this Primarch. And as if that wasn’t enough, there had te be extra details on the details. Vulkan has several flame-shaped trims on his gunhand, chest and shoulderguard, which were first painted in several shades of gold, but then there had to be actual flames painted, as if those colors were merging with the gold. After a few attempts, I was happy with the result and used this on the rest of the details as well.

Then there the cloak, which should represent drake scale taken from the Great Drake he had slewn back on Nocturne. For this I started out with a specially mixed dark shade of green, washed and glazed it with washes and green glaze untill I was happy with the base shade, then drybrushed with a lighter green, and fianlly drybrushing only the bigger scaled parts with karak stone, to give it that sense that even the scale is starting to age.

But the base color of his armour was a trick. I didn;t want to go with just one of the basic colors GW supplies, so I had to mix the color from 3 different paints, covered the entire armour with it, then washed and glazed it with several colors of washes and glazes until I was happy with it.

 

Overall seen, I had a lot of fun painting him. It was a bit of a challenge for me, since I have never painted Salamender before and this model is just packed with details, but I think the result is satisfactory. What do you guys think?

Hear the Bearer of Words

Faith is the soul of any army; be it vested in primitive religion or enlightened truth. It makes even the least soldier mighty, the craven is remade worthy and through its balm any hardship may be endured. Faith ennobles all of the worlds the soldier undertakes be they so base or vile, and imports to them the golden spark of transcendent purpose.

Lorgar Aurelian, Primarch of the Word Bearers

Heya guys.

Here is my go on Lorgar Aurelian, the Urizen, Primarch of the XVII Legion, the Word Bearers.

I had a lot of fun on this model. Both like Horus and Fulgrim, this model had a lot of details, making it a very characteristic model. He has all the little details referring to the Word Bearers, and also to his history, like the Colchisian runes running all over his armor, the book on his right shoulder pad, a remembrance to the old ways of the Word Bearers when they were still known as the Imperial Heralds and the overexagerated amount of papers and scrolls hanging from his armour, all carrying parts of honours, wise words and such…

Also the runes carved into the rock give you the idea that he is already subdued to the Eightfold path, but they are also actualy Colchisian drawings, brought into the stone.

This was also the forst model for me on which I had to paint light effects. And to be honest, for a first time aaproach, I think I didn’t do bad.

Anyways, what do you guys think?

Greetings all

I had a great time. I came home with a Sons Of Horus canvas bag, a Legion Falchion 5 Justaerins with all the weapons and 2 Dimachaerons

Pictures will be uploaded soon (and yes this time I will upload them soon)

Greetings to all

Fresh from the Forge

Heya people.

A while ago, I was talking about starting a Sons of Horus army. Since a week or so, that project has finally started. The first models are already in my possession and I started painting them. When finished I will upload pictures. But for now I have something different to show you.

A Storm Eagle is on it’s way and as I want it to be fully dedicated to the Warmaster’s forces, I’d love nothing more than it to be adorned with the iconography of the XVI Legion. Unfortunately, Forgeworld does not sell Sons Of Horus Land Raider Doors.
A few days ago, I received my Blu Stuff order. It allows me to make molds, so I can reproduce anything I want. So I started working on my Land Raider Doors. And this is what came out. 20140806_050848
To test-fit it, I put it on my Chaos Land Raider and as you can see, it fits pretty well. Just need to get the dose of greenstuff right. But I am very pleased that the mold was doing it’s job.
So in the future, I can fit my own homemade Land Raider doors in any vehicle that requires them to really personalize the army.

I hope you guys like it. Tell me what you think.

Untill next time

The Angels Have Fallen

Heya people. This post will not be a WIP show-off or a post to show what I’ve finished, rather than what I have been doing. A while ago, I played and game of Apocalypse game of 6000 points against a friend’s Dark Angels Successor Chapter, Guardians of the Covenant. We had a lot of fun. I played my Chaos Space Marines Iron Warriors. What happened during the game, I cannot recall all of it anymore. In short, my only losses were:
1 Daemon Prince
10 Thousand Sons
11 Warp Talons.
1 2 Rhinos
and a few standard tactical marines
My Warhound Titan stood unscathed with all void shield generators replenished at the end of the game and my opponent took a hell of a beating, losing all his formations and his super-heavy vehicle, a Legion Fellblade.
At the end of the game, determining who had the most victory points, I ended up winning the game with a staggering 16 to 1 points. Something like that never happens to me!! But it was a really fun game. He enjoyed it, as well as I did.
Here are some pictures to capture the battle somewhat and to show you what units we had put on the table. IMG-20140516-WA0006IMG-20140516-WA0004IMG-20140516-WA0006IMG-20140516-WA0007IMG-20140516-WA0008IMG-20140516-WA0008IMG-20140516-WA0005IMG-20140516-WA0004IMG-20140516-WA0003

Heresy Warmachine part 2

Heya peopl so here it is as I promised. My scratchbuilt Legion Fellblade, all done. On this picture it is missing one lookout piece where a marine would be placed but I have put that one on there after I took this picture. So now I am going to basecoat it and then start painting it as soon as I have the needed paints. So what are your thoughts so far? I'd like to hear some feedback from you guys out there

Heresy Warmachine

Heresy Warmachine

Heya people. It’s been a while ago since I last posted something here, but I haven’t forgotten. Much has been going on lately. I am close to completing my Chaos Space Marines army, that I have started repainting about a year ago, and now, it’s almost done!!
In the meanwhile, I have also painted 3 Primarch models, which of pictures I will post soon,
But recently, I have had the idea of possibly starting a Horus Heresy army, and ever sInce I’ve started reading the Horus Heresy Novels, I have been utterly fascinated by the Luna Wolves/Sons Of Horus Legion, mainly because a lot of well-known characters are from that Legion, like Abaddon and ofcourse Horus himself. Since I have a small amount to no money to start it right away, I decided to take measures in my hands in a different way.
Even at this very moment, I am working a Legion Fellblade, as shown above, though mine will be painted in the colors of the Sons of Horus, the sea greean with dark grey and gold.
Literally everything on this bad boy will be scratch-builty, from the main hull to the cannon and cupola, and even the treks/tracks.
So keep an eye out somewhere trhoughout this week, because i Just might finish it in about a few days.
that’s really it for now. Thought I’d keep you guys updated a litle on my project.

see you soon
