My friend Joe was kind enough to let me borrow his airbrush and all I have to say is, “Wow. Why don’t I have one of these?”
I am adding hazard stripping to some of the bases. I would add it to more of them, I love the look, but the yellow striping with yellow marines is not the best contrast. Less is more in this case.
Test model is done. My phone camera tried it’s hardest to capture the yellow but it did not come out as a very accurate representation. I am pleased with the results, especially considering the amount of time spent on the model. The entire color scheme was built with speed in mind. Adepticon is much too… Read More First Imperial Fist done
Working on the first batch of Imperial Fists. Started with a Corax White undercoat followed by two thin layers of Usabti Bone (model on left). Then an Agrax Earthshade line wash (middle model) and then a glaze of Lamenters Yellow. This was followed by a White Scar edge highlight (right model). Next up is to… Read More Steps 1-3 for the Imperial Fists
In hindsight I should have taken pictures during my trials and tribulations building this mother. There are no instructions for using the now out of print Forge World upgrade kit and it was not an easy build. So, for posterity, I should have documented the process. Oh well, lesson learned. I have added some bits… Read More Landraider Achilles: Pattern Alpha WIP
<br /WIP for my HQ for the Horus Heresy Team Tournament. I'll be using the model as a standard captain in the Zone Mortalis event and as Alexis in the Team event. I've left the shield unattached to help with painting. The scenic base is in the background and I'll probably keep that unpainted until… Read More Alexis Polux, Imperial Fists Captain WIP
All they need is bolt pistols and grenades to be added. This is the twenty marine squad that will hold the line during the Horus Heresy team tournament.
Just need one more helmet with a targeter attachment. I’m sure I’ll be able to trade from another Betrayal at Calth box. I went with the bald head for the squad sergeant considering it also have a targeter.
I am using textured plasticard and various plasticard strips to create a basing scheme for my Horus Heresy Imperial Fists. It takes a bit of time but the army is relatively small and the advanced basing will go a long way to enhance the overall presentation of army.
First batch of five breacher marines. I am running two squads of ten for the Horus Heresy team tournament at Adepticon. The sergeants will have power firsts and I am thinking of going with two flamers in each squad as well.
