That's a great looking command section, the Calth Chaplain works really well as a standard bearer. You're right to be happy with the cloak, it's nicely done, as is the highlighting on the helm.

Thanks man! I've recently started going quite a bit brighter on the highlights (Lothern Blue instead of Caledor Sky) and it really pops vs the standard troopers. Started with Sevatar and have carried it over. Really excited to do Curze... one day.

Not quite done, but Iā€™m super stoked with how Guilliman has turned out. The Horus Heresy head looks so much more hopeful and forward-looking than the dour plastic 40K one. I had worried the sizing would be off, but it worked out pretty well. Need to shade underneath it once the glue dries, but I'm so, so happy with the current product. 

 

Also, all that gold? Contrast is the secret! Can't wait to work on Dorn.

Your Guilliman is very well-painted. I hope to see the completed model soon.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Bringing a little more REFINED weaponry to the old elites of Nostramo... Sharp blades for better skin slicing... Happy with how the first VIII Legion Raptor is turning out.

Ha, no! From the ooooold metal Iron Warrior upgrade set. I had one spare and loved how menacing they looked, so went for it.

Oh wow. That's pretty good then. I've seen that kit, but never saw any of the helmets from any angle other than directly in front (because I've only seen the helmets on the GW website). It does look very menacing though.

Yeah it's a good fit. Very hard to find now though... 

 

Another one down! I'll go and do all of their backpacks when I'm done. Really pleased with this guy's skull helm. He also has just one flayed-skin glove. He's like the Michael Jackson of murder.

Choosing reason weapons before adding BFTBG was... a bad choice in retrospect.

Thanks!

 

Took a break from Raptors and did a Moritat instead...

I was planning on wearing-and-tearing the armour like I did with the Destroyer squad, but decided against it as in my head this guy is higher-ranked, and has more legion serfs to polish his armour after every battle, but he's still rocking the red gauntlets... Also I didn't feel like it. I also have no idea where the shall casing came from, but oh well. 

 

I alternated the angle of the "spotter" to cover the opposite of where he's looking, and also changed the colour of the indicators on the back of the Volkites. Green for good to go, yellow and red for the one that overheated.
