Hello all!;)

Its been a while since i last painted anything (i have the army service to thank for that) but now that i'm almost done i thought i should make a new log to compile all my Pre Heresy efforts.Its going to include progress of my Blood Angels, Emperor's Children and some Space Wolves and Night Lords in between.

High Sanguinary Priest Mercato, Blood Angels Legion.

A Death Company loonie having a merry time (Its a bad idea to say nasty things about the Imperium when these fellas are around...) and some Assault Marine WIPS,they will eventually get wings on their jump packs.

And finally the test model for my Great Crusade era Night Lords.

Wow! Loving that Crusade Era Night Lords brother. I really like the darker scheme on the armour and the subtle lightning effects. Also that crazy Death Company marine pummeling the guardsman with his helmet is awesome as well. Count me as subscribed, can't wait to see more.

first and foremost a recipe for that white is needed, its all sorts of nice.

the night lord is looking very cool although i think he could do with having the top part of his head the dark blue rather than white, but thats just me.

Excellent painting and modeling all around. The white (actually looks more like very light gray with white highlights, which works) is superb, and the dark blue 'midnight clad' is also a work of precision.

Just one thing...was there such a thing as pre-heresy Death Company?

Suffer not the xeno psyker kitten, as to it the souls of man are but balls of yarn and jingly amusements!

Land Speeder Fury, Blood Angels Legion. The Marines wear blue helmets because i thought (contrary to established fluff) that since the Tornados are crewed by Assault Marines, the heavily armed Typhoons should be crewed by Devastators.All Blood Angels like to fight in the air after all.

And finally some members of the Legio Custodes.

Right,Night Lord recipe:

-Mordian Blue over black undercoat.
-2 Heavy washes of Badab Black.
-Watered down Mordian Blue highlights, 2 parts water - 1 part MB.
-1 part Mordian Blue-1 part White edge highlights.
-1 part Mordian Blue-2 parts White fine highlights.

Corbulo recipe:

-Adeptus Battlegrey over black undercoat.
-Astronomican grey,leaving the recesses with the darker colour.
-1 part Astronomican grey-1 part White over the previous layer.
-Pure White highlights.

Both are very quick and easy.The white i use is Vallejo white but any white will work the same.

Firepower, i use the DC with my 40k BAs. Since these guys are Scouring era, i like to think that some marines would already have started falling to the Black Rage and will use these models on a 25mm base as objectives.

Cheers! :teehee:

It's all looking mighty fine. The custodes look nice and easy, but very good.

The Tervigon and Termagants on my right unleash a salvo of spines and grubs at my small platoon, forcing Commissar Hogan to order his men to bite the Emperor's glorious dirt and go to ground. Casualties are light, and under Hogan's gaze everyone claims the dirt is delicious.

Looking Dargor, I especially like the Custodes. May I ask which arms you used to wield those power/bolter-halberds?

These termies are a gosh darned nice end result. You sir have a sharp eye for diverse bits and appear to be a dab hand at putting them together in a way that says PRE-HERESY BLOOD ANGELS. This is very well done - these guys are only about 20% blood angel bits, if that.

Your photography is quite good, but lighting could be better.

Wow DaemonPrinceDargor impressive preheresy goodness, the painting is really good, and the custodes conversions are fantastic.
BTW the custodes are: DA legs, BA thunderhammer arms, BT and BA chest, but the head from what High Elf kit?
Its cool to see how well the 2nd edition bolters fits. Great job men :(

“Three Legions of Marines stand to defend you, sire. All of us will unflinchingly place ourselves between you and the war’s desolation.
We are the greatest humans ever born – we are the flame of Humanity where the rest of the galaxy is just the spark.
In centuries of warfare, against the vileness of the alien, the lies of the heretic, the foulness of the mutant,
I have never known fear – but your silence terrifies me.”

Your painting skills are great, but modeling wise there's nothing screaming "Pre-Heresy" to me. Aquilas on bolters and the Land Speeder, death masks, and Death Company are all post-Heresy things. I'm also not sure about the Grey Knights Terminator legs, the mention of Titan in particular.

The models are well done and the painting is, again, great. I just don't see the Pre-Heresy part.
