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

Hail the Warmaster!

“You are like a son and together we have all but conquered the galaxy. Now the time has come for me to retire to Terra. My work as a soldier is done and now passes to you for I have great tasks to perform in my earthly sanctum. I name you Warmaster and from this day forth all of my armies and generals shall take orders from you as if the words came from mine own mouth. But words of caution I have for you, for your brother Primarchs are strong of will, of thought and of action. Do not seek to change them, but use their particular strengths well. You have much work to do, for there are still many words to liberate, many peoples to rescue. My trust is with you. Hail Horus! Hail the Warmaster!”
—The Emperor of Mankind, during the Triumph of Ullanor

After a 20 hour paint session I finished him. The one and only Horus Lupercal, The Warmaster of Mankind, The first found son, Primarch of the Sons of Horus/Luna Wolves and Arch-Traitor to the Imperium. Been having a lot of fun painting him. The details on Horus are breathtaking, the model itself looks like he could step from the statue any time.
Being one of my favorite Primarchs of all time, I just couldn’t resist buying the model and painting him up to the best of my ability. And it was worth it. The result, I think, is just stunning. Never have I ever put down so much work and brought so much detail to life.
I hope you like how he looks, because to me, he is ready to put the galaxy aflame!!
