I have to disagree, I think that the model looks absolutely spectacular in no small part because of that lack of contrast. It looks one member of a legion, not a collection of individuals. On an army level, I think this scheme will be more powerful. The legions are bigger, and I think you should keep high contrast on an army level rather than a model level to help give that feel.

In us burns a fire for vengeance that will only be quenched when we stand triumphant over the smoldering ruins of Terra. Our laughter on that day will haunt their survivors till the end of time. We will stride forth victorious through the shattered gates of their fortress, holding high aloft the defiled corpse of their rotting god as our prize.

@ Teetengee: Just to clarify: I wasn't arguing in favour of changing anything about the model itself, but rather about its base. Such a change wouldn't impact the legionary look in the slightest, but would nevertheless provide a bit of contrast, which I think an army needs if you don't want the whole collection to just blur together when seen from farther away -- just my two cents.

Idk, I think some of the allure of the heresy is large enough armies that they would blur. Plus, I think the base as it is looks more sinister than a ruddier base would.

hanks you guys, it is quite right that i did the green plasma and eyes and the grey weapon colour to tie it in with my balefire legion.

its even basd the same way, so i purpusly avoided the reds that standard for so s of horus.

considered adding some gore or red thropys to do a bit of spot colour that would contrast, but its is just a test model so will have to see, i do like the idea of them being legion, should be able to build just over 100mk 4 Sons of Horus, and gonna convert 15 justtarin and then later gonna take my time and coasy a bit and paint up my Horus model.

The green of the eyes and coils works well with the rest of the model, nice to see a slightly different take on the Sons.

a little, was tricky to get them placed and not shooting them across the room when they slipped from my twesers. had to make a tiny puddle of glue dipnthemmthen apply, gonna be fun to do the big areas like legs or shoulder plate ... :P

Only thing I would reccomend is to bring in the arms a bit, to close the large gap between the shoulder pads and the torso. Other than that, the conversion is ace!

For the kneepad spikes, have you considered using an accelerant? Use the accelerator on the kneepad, superglue on the spikes, should help them set fast ^^
