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.




Suggests and comments please.

Horus Heresy - further painting

by DaBoss on Sat Nov 02, 2013 5:37 pm
I'm just loving painting these new Forgeworld models.

Sons of Horus
Have given them a wash of Biel-Tan, followed by two dry brushings of Dawnstone, 2nd thin wash of Biel-Tan and another dry brush of Dawnstone - never gone to this much effort for rank & file troops!
Added the Pauldrons giving them the same washes and dry brushing, then picked out the edges with Hashut Bronze washed with Nuln Oil.
Finally finished today with painting bases Mournfang Brown.

I think I'll enjoy painting up another 35 more of these troops.
Sons of Horus

Also added some more colour to my Mechanicum, in line with how my other look

My New Forgeworld Stuff

With our Team's (Armageddon Inc) recent visit up to GW Lenton for 'Council of War' weekend, which turned out to be a good weekend for my Chaos Daemon army of Tzeentch (1 loss and 2 wins) and the absolute victory (17-5) in Apocalypse on the second day - got to use my Armourcast Phantom Titan in an 8000pts per side.

He did very well, kill list included Marneus Calgar and 10 Terminator Bodyguard, Tigius, Lysander, 3 Centurions, 2 Vendetta's and a Warhound twice (brought back after scheduled break), only possible due to the sacrifice of James Iyanden Eldar protecting me from tons of assault Terminators.

Anyway, between these games I picked up the latest Horus Heresy Book 2 - Massacre, along with some Mechanicum and the first models for my first Forgeworld only army - 5 MkIII Space Marines to be painted up as Sons of Horus (I've already got a sizeable Worldeater force using Mk6 RTO1 Space Marine 'Beakies' with Angron leading them to many a victory.

Looking in the allies chart in HH Book 1...
