So, awhile back, I wanted to make a pre-heresy terminator, just like as a diorama. I kinda rushed it, making a world eater with a chain glaive, and a combi plasma/bolter. it didnt really turn out. So, im back for another go at it. my plan now is to make a 5 man squad of close combat termies. not sure what legion yet, maybe ill do some more world eaters, becuase i love how brutal they are. but the main thing i need to focus on this time is to take my time.

my plans are to make these guys much bigger than normal, almost a true scale. im gonna give 2 guys thunder hammers and big sheilds, a sgt. a sword and sheild, another guy a mace and ?book?, and a standard bearer a huge honkin axe.

im gonna be ordering the bits from bitskingdom, or hopefully i get them for my birthday in a couple days (yay finaly gonna be 18!) but since i have nothing to do right now (by nothing to do i meen i have way too much to do, but im to lazy to do it now)
ive started making the hammers and sheilds. right now i have one hammer and sheild done, the sheild is about twice the size of the normal one, and the hammer is as tall as a normal marine B)

any tips or suggestions for making these dudes?
Hopefully ill have pics up in a day or two (lost the camera cord) :P

Having seen the hammer and shield and considering the hammer head is the size of a cadian torso while the shield is as tall as a guardsman these guys are going to be sweet.

so, i still haven't gotten, or ordered the bits yet, but i thought id go ahead and start making as much as i can while i wait, so far,
ive finished 2 hammers and 3 shields.
and yes, as my brother put it,(shadow nugz is my brother, feel sorry for me) the hammers are big, just as i want it.
i guess now is a good time to actually post some pics,
heres the origanal pre-heresy termie i did, as you can see, i am in the process of stripping the paint.

this is the hammer head, standing up against one of my dg sgts,(his names Tim) as you can see, its big:)
(oh, and by the way, this was the first mini i used the chipped paint effect on, plz tell me what you think)

heres a hammer head compared to the normal thunder hammer.
Posted Image
Heres Tim, displaying the 3 shields i have for the termies.
Posted Image
Heres the halberd/ axe head for the standard bearer, im not quite sure im gonna use this one.
Posted Image
and heres just a pic of the shields compared to the normal shields.
Posted Image
so, tell me what you think, I've kinda decided im going to paint them as world eaters.

Now, after a long wait, i finaly have purchased the bits to make these dudes. and so far, i have one done, hes the sgt. he has a power sword and sheild.... but still no pic. i found my camera (which is usually the problem) and i have the camera cord, but its the wrong cord, i hope i can find the right one, and put some pics up tonight.
(fyi, i am gonna use the larger sheild that comes with the termies for the sgt, since it will be a little smaller than the ones i made)

oh, and some help please, im finaly begining to learn how to use inks and the sort, but i need some help. what inks should i buy to make these guys look rough and dirty? i dont want some clean looking termies, they are world eaters anyway.

I've made some minor changes since I took that picture, like cleaning up some of the gs and armor. Also, these guys are
still gonna be world eaters, but heresy-era, instead of preheresy, not much change, but ill add a khorne symbol here and there too.

almost forgot, i have a 5 man squad of heresy era marines that im going to add to these, hopefully make a heresy-era
army someday. pics of those on the way.
C&C very welcome.

Thats looks great. i really like the helmet and the blocky armour, it suits the brutal appearance of the World Eaters great.

Can't wait to see a full painted squad.

Dreadnought legguards as TDA shoulderpads? That's a totally cool idea that I now want to try... (And I have a whole ton of extras lying around.)

Where did you get that Sheild from as that model looks so cool I might somehow get a Jump pack on that and use them as sanuguinus guard.
Any way looks great I paint white using this technique;
spray white if not white enough consider giving it another light coat,
I start inside out with a grey inkwash in recesses then highlight the edges the lightest grey you can find.
Paint the main part of the body in with denrab stone foundation paint or something like that anyway forgot the name.
Go over this with skull white.
Any mistakes repeat with the process before .
easy can be messy but with pratice works great.
You could if you wanted to mix in a blue in with the grey ink this gives a nice effect as well.

It's from the Assault Terminators sprue.

It's TDA, how the hell should that go in line with a JP ?

and use them as sanuguinus guard.


They're World Eaters after all, not a BAs :(

edit: totally forgot about commenting on the model :) Looks good plaguereaper, just get rid of the moldlines ;)

How can people always find the moldlines? I can never see them unless I look really closely...msut be some special talen. :D

And yeah, your squad looks good. If you can be bothered, get rid of the moldlines (I didn't for my first army, and it didn't turn out too well...*shudder*)
