I'm running out of explatives to trll you how much I love your work. Suffice to say I like them. I lied when I said I hate you for it, but there are definitely smudgeons of feelings of envy here.

To respond to you suggestion of me doing some III... I do have some palatine blades lying around, which I plan on using as noise marines... Some day.

Now aren't you happy I gave you this crazy idea 😀

They look superb man no doubt about it now you want 2 20 men squads of them don't you

Thanks bro, pretty sure I'd go insane if I tried to paint two full units of 20 though. One unit of 10 is hard enough... the white really slows down the process.

Thanks for the kind words bro, glad you like them! I'm happy to wait to see you Noise Marines because I know that they'll be amazing :tu:

 

Love 'em

Thanks bro!

 

The red really seems to complete the model, nice work!

Yeah, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. At this stage I'm going to keep the red pretty limited on the 'regular' marines, but it works nicely on the sergeant.

 

I can never do the III Legion now... Mine will never be worthy.

Those are my favorite yet.

Nonsense!! Your Emperor's Children will be awesome!

 

As others have said Kiz, we are running out of superlatives to describe your incredible work. Kudos sir.  

Thanks a lot mate! I appreciate it.

 

 

 

 

Thanks for looking ;)

Man, those look great, Brother. The gladius and shield combo alongside with the white, the crest and ornamented armour make for a beautiful combination. I have to agree with some of the others that painting the tabards red like the sergeant would look much better.

 

Also, how do you manage to apply round transfers so well? I always have trouble with round ones, like the IF or UM transfers.

I love the burnished gold on the backpack, the effect is excellent. I must admit looking back at your old models I can decide which I love more, the silver palatine blade or these Breachers with the white.

I'm surprised at how well the white works with the purple. In fact, I think it looks far better than the silver; bloody gorgeous.

 

Any chance you'll be throwing a Saturnine-clad character into the mix?

Time for the Palatine Breacher step by step.

 

 

Palatine Breacher tutorial pt. 1

 

 

As usual with my Emperor's Children I started off with an undercoat of Chaos Black spray. I then painted the purple areas of the armour with Xereus Purple.

DSCN4395_zpsnvgrjzwq.jpg

 

Next up I started on the 'white'. Usually I'd leave white until last because it is so easy to pollute it with other colours if it's painted early on in the process, but because 'white' is such a dominant colour in this scheme and because there is so much detail on top of the 'white', I had to make an early start on it. The 'white was a 1/2 mix of Celestra Grey and White Scar. I applied two thinned coats to achieve a smooth and solid finish.

DSCN4396_zpsuvfhtl78.jpg

 

The next step was to 'black line' the 'white' with watered down Mechanicum Standard Grey.

DSCN4397_zpsg6gn2uv3.jpg

 

I then painted the 'silver' areas (power pack vents, gladius blade etc) with Leadbelcher. 

DSCN4398_zpsayawdumc.jpg

 

The gold was base coated with a 1/1 mix of Gehenna's Gold and Retributor Armour. Retributor has a much higher pigment concentration and helps to give the Gehenna's better coverage.

DSCN4399_zpsoaczcgqq.jpg

 

Next I used Balthazar Gold to paint some of the pipes/tubes such as on the power pack and under the arms on the sides of the torso.

DSCN4400_zpsnfb1owo8.jpg

 

The gold was washed with Agrax Earthshade and the Leadbelcher was washed with Nuln Oil.

DSCN4401_zpssu7hgnhc.jpg

 

The gold was finished off with a highlight of Runefang Steel.

DSCN4402_zps1ldpwwee.jpg

 

I then finished the purple by 'black lining' it with some watered down Abaddon Black and a highlight with Geenestealer Purple.

DSCN4404_zpskfkduge8.jpg

 

 

See next post for pt. 2

 

 

 

*looks at paint brushes, gas canister in one hand, lighter in the other and sighs, defeated*

 

But seriously, have you thought about also giving these guys Red Cloth too? Or painting the leg straps a Leather-Brown?

Haha, thanks bro! I thought about giving them all red cloths but I thought it might be a bit much. I'll wait until the unit is finished and then make a choice about whether I want to leave them black or paint them up to be the same as the sergeant.

 

 

Only half of the legion minis that I've painted have tutorials, and the Iron Warriors are not amongst them. Fortunately they're also the easiest Legion to paint. Here are some links:

Thanks a lot dude! And yes, that is an excellent idea! I had thought about putting some links in the first post but I completely forgot, so thanks for reminding me. I never thought the thread would become quite so big, so unfortunately it's a bit cluttered and all over the place. I'll update the first post :)

 

I think I'm almost out of words to describe your mini's but damn Kizz, they are stellar!

Thanks for the kind words and encouragement, bro! 

 

Man, those look great, Brother. The gladius and shield combo alongside with the white, the crest and ornamented armour make for a beautiful combination. I have to agree with some of the others that painting the tabards red like the sergeant would look much better.

 

Also, how do you manage to apply round transfers so well? I always have trouble with round ones, like the IF or UM transfers.

Thanks a lot! Glad you like the shield/gladius/crest combination. I'm trying to give the unit an Imperial vibe and the Roman Praetorian Guard were a definite source inspiration. 

With the round transfers such as the laurels I was able to cut out the centre of the decal so that it was more flexible and easier to position. The Palatine Aquillas and the III numerals were more difficult because I couldn't cut out the centres, but I used a decal softener and that seemed to help a bit. I also used a hobby knife to make some small cuts in the decals if they weren't lying straight. A nice coat of spray on matt varnish also helps to smooth out the decals and give a much cleaner finish.

 

I love the burnished gold on the backpack, the effect is excellent. I must admit looking back at your old models I can decide which I love more, the silver palatine blade or these Breachers with the white.

Thanks a lot bro! I'm glad you think the new legionaries measure up to the Palatine Blades.

 

I got shivers off that second pic. Just theorist amount of cool+menace.

Thanks bro! It's good to hear that you feel that the mini is menacing. Sometimes it's harder to make the Emperor's Children look sufficiently dangerous.

Other than that, what Slipstreams said.

Hahaha, thanks a lot bro!

Just do it! Join the Emperor's favourite Legion...

Thanks a lot!

 

I'm surprised at how well the white works with the purple. In fact, I think it looks far better than the silver; bloody gorgeous.

 

Any chance you'll be throwing a Saturnine-clad character into the mix?

Thanks bro! When you say 'Saturnine-clad character' are you referring to the Saturnine Rams or something else?

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks for looking ;)

Palatine Breachers tutorial pt. 2

 

 

 

Next up I started on the red. This is the same method that I used for the sergeants cloth. The first colour was a base coat of Khorne Red mixed with a little bit of Xereus Purple.

DSCN4405_zpscdkly4jo.jpg

 

I then washed the red with Druchii Violet.

DSCN4406_zps0f7utyvm.jpg

 

And highlighted it with Blood Red.

DSCN4407_zpsnkfsxt9v.jpg

 

The eyes were painted in the usual way using Snot Green and White Scar.

DSCN4408_zpsc5cwynxb.jpg

 

The black loincloth was highlighted with a 1/1 mix of Abaddon Black and Mechanicus Standard Grey. I also base coated the parchment on the vexilla with a 2/1 mix of Screaming Skull and Steel Legion Drab.

DSCN4409_zpssqg1xvyp.jpg

 

The loincloth was finished off with a highlight of Mechanicus Standard Grey.

DSCN4410_zpsm7llb8zu.jpg

 

The gladius blades were given a thin glaze with Guilliman Blue.

DSCN4411_zpsqi4hwdvk.jpg

 

The parchment was washed with Seraphim Sepia.

DSCN4412_zpsuoxglhwh.jpg

 

The parchment was finished with a highlight using a mix of Screaming Skull and White Scar.

DSCN4413_zpsmdoz2j3o.jpg

 

The script was painted with Abaddon Black.

DSCN4414_zpsiss2jxwi.jpg

 

I then moved on to the crests. The white was base coated with Celestra Grey.

DSCN4415_zpstx89w6vp.jpg

 

I then washed it with Nuln Oil.

DSCN4416_zpsxnslebgh.jpg

 

And highlighted it with White Scar.

DSCN4417_zpsdjgzrygw.jpg

 

The black horsehair was highlighted with Mechanicus Standard Grey.

DSCN4418_zpsv71dtlki.jpg

 

The minis were finished off by adding the decals and shields, and attaching them to their bases. The front of the shield were under coated with GW white spray, but apart from that were painted in the same way as the rest of the minis.

Aha, probably should have clarified that better; when I refer to Saturnine, I'm referring to the fact a handful of people believe it's the old Mark I Tactical Dreadnought Armour. Greyall and KrautScientist have come up with some pretty awesome interpretations of the old suit.

That aside, still love the breachers; might have to give that painting guide a shot after ETL is finished.

Give them oval shields instead of medieval ones and these breachers would look like they popped out of ancient Greece or Rome. Marvelous job, though I concur that I'd rather their loincloth be red.

For what it's worth, I'd stick to black loincloths for the rest of the squad.

 

Much like the unique helm on the standard bearer, it helps the sgt to subltly stand out from the rest of his bros.

 

Keep up the awesome work, man! I'm loving the predominance of white on these guys. It really makes them look polished and elite.

I'm of two minds about the loincloths, since it came up.

 

On the one hand, I don't think black suitably complements the awesome work that you're doing on these models. To me, at least, it looks a little bit unfinished and detracts from the models slightly. On the other, I do agree with Noctus and Flint in that red should be held exclusively for the Sergeant -- he should have something to make him stand out a little bit more. Perhaps a different color? Maybe a light tan or more off-white?

 

Anyways, it still looks awesome! I, in all sincerity, cannot wait to see the unit finished to marvel at the awesome paint job and consistent skill you always display.Keep up the awesome work! :tu: (and yes, I know I used the word awesome three times in that last bit, it's just I can't think of something that sums up your awesome paint jobs better. See? Did it again.)
