Horus Heresy - Sons of Horus New Year Update

by DaBoss on Wed Jan 01, 2014 2:36 pm
With New Years day bring very wet and grey, perfect time to get the paints out and start adding some colour to my Sons of Horus models.

Starting with 2 coats of Dry Brushed Mechanicus Standard Grey.

Two Squads of 20 Tactical Marines, 10 Support Tactical Marines, 2 Apothecaries and a Praetor

Two Spartans.

Now for a Dry Bush of Dawnstone before going with a coat of Biel-Tan Green wash

You'll notice I'm missing the Quad Lascannon guns from the Spartans, seems that Forgeworld sent me Predator Sponsons wrongly!!
Wondered why the brackets seemed too small - phoned FW on 20th Dec, still waiting for the post to arrive; hopefully before Monday 6th as I wanted to use my Sons of Horus in their first game of WH30K (more like against 40K Chaos Space Marines) in a 2000pt game.

Horus Heresy Interlude

by DaBoss on Sun Dec 15, 2013 2:30 pm
Just started on the next batch of Horus Heresy model build.
Fulgrim_Ferrus_2.JPG

That's 2 Spartan Tanks, Primarchs Fulgrim and Ferrus Manus drying out from there soak in water to remove any residual mould lubricant.

While waiting on the first parts of the Spartan hulls to set before adding the track units, decided to go ahead and build the two Primarchs.

Fulgrim and his brother Ferrus Manus

Fulgrims acenic base makes for a very big model, but can now see why when together with Ferrus on the full scenic diorama makes sense (not built that yet - probably will when I start painting)

Looks like I will collect every Primarch model from Forgeworld - just such great sculpts and has having just got to 'Vulkan Lives', love seeing their different characters.
Seems...

Building 30K Sons of Horus Force Part 2

by DaBoss on Sat Dec 14, 2013 1:18 pm
Not sure how many have had a go at putting together Forgeworld Heresy Space Marines, I find putting the arms and bolter on really hard.
1. Holding the resin together after applying the super glue without sticking my fingers to the resin is a pain
2. Then making sure the Bolter fits in-between the hands without breaking the arms off again.

I found putting a layer of Liquid Green stuff on the joints gave the superglue some coarseness to bond.

Anyway - finally managed to get the arms, bolter, head and shoulder pads on.

That's 35 Tactical Space Marines with Bolters (including Sergeant, Vox and backbanner), plus a Squad of Support Marines with Plasma Guns.

Add to this Loken Garvial and the two Apothecaries.

Finally decided to put together Abaddon as well, decided to go with the Combi Bolter than the Sword, though my Sons of Horus will...

Building 30K Sons of Horus Force

by DaBoss on Sun Dec 08, 2013 9:10 pm
So after test painting 5 Sons of Horus models and liking what I did, I jumped in and bought myself a force of Sons of Horus as my birthday present to myself.
Put the order into Forgeworld for 45 Mk III Armour, Phobos Boltguns, 10 Plasma Guns, Sons of Horus shoulder pads, 2 Apothecaries and the Loken & Abbaddon box set. As I was putting such a big order in I decided to also pick up two Spartan Tanks and the Ferrus Manus Primarch model (see these models in a later blog).

Should have enough for a 1500pts+ force, swap in 2 Plasma Guns into each 20 Man Squads and ready to use as Chaos Space Marine Force.

This weekend I started on the Tactical Space Marines, washed and cleaned up the models; started fixing them together.

Sons of Horus - Test Painting

by DaBoss on Sun Nov 03, 2013 2:12 pm
Just need to finish the base and do some highlights on the Shoulder Pauldrons
Think the Shoulder Icon needs darkening?
Plus Squad symbol of other shoulder - What to put there? Did Tactical Squad Markings exist in 30K pre-codex astartes?
- test painting of my Sons of Horus done.
