Hey gang. I had meant to start this topic all formal-like over the weekend, but my enthusiasm has gotten the better of me. What follows are my Vanguard Veterans and an Emperor's Champion who will serve as a veteran sergeant for game purposes. For those who would like to know the background of these fine fellows, follow the link to the Liber Astartes. Much, much, much more to come soon.

Hey gang! Take a look at my WIP Chapter Master, modeled using the Forge World Boarding Marine. I need some advice though. Do those purity seals blend in too closely with the gold?

Looks great, I reckon.

 

Is the haft of the hammer ever-so-slightly bent though?

Hot damn, now that is how to do a quartered scheme. Very, very nice!biggrin.png

 

The purity seals stand out alright as far as I can tell. They're brighter without being too bright, if you see what I mean.happy.png

Slightly, but it really does not bother me. I'm too afraid that if I tried correcting it at this stage I would do more damage. Good eye though!

 

(For clarification, I meant the paper on the purity seals. But you guys figured it out anyway!)

Small update, as I want to make a nice master post later today, but I've outfitted my counts-as Telion. Midsection and legs not yet glued for painting reasons. Very proud of the cobbled-together Stalker-pattern bolter.

Hey gang! I've got some nice updates here. I've done much more than these photos show, but I'll upload those when I'm not running out to class.

Contemptor Dreadnoughts are HUGE. I don't think that quite sunk in when I looked at the photos online. He just became my centerpiece.

A squad standard bearer. I like the idea of each squad having a banner, if just for fluff. And if my opponent doesn't like that he has no visible weapons, he makes a great objective marker!

Finished a plastic chaplain kit bash. I'm a big fan of chaplains with jump packs, so my old (and poorly painted) Dark Vengeance model got scrapped for parts.

Beautifully done. You're brave shooting for the quartered paint scheme, and you knocked it out of the park.

 

Awesome, man.

Thanks heathens! I've been meaning to post the knife-wielding marine I made as a tribute to your Astral Claws log (you always seemed to have knife guys on that one).

Very nice work, I particularly like the hammer head, you pulled off a great looking effect there and overall the chapter scheme is simple but effective and you've pulled it off very cleanly. The blue wax seals of the purity seals really helps make them stand out, a nice accent color against the white, red and gold!

 

You also did a great job on the chapter master's face, great detail work, I find it very difficult to pick out the eyes but that looks great. Generally though I like to have my marines helmeted but that does look sweet, very expressive.

Just noticed that your signature says Crimson Sons instead of Crimson Lords.

 

Just an FYI!

 

Also: Paint more. I can't do any of my own at the moment, so I need to feed my addiction by looking at other peoples'.

Thanks for the support, everyone! Argent aquila, tell me how you like the background I wrote. If you think I should put it here for the sake of convenience, let me know. So this is the project that has taken up much of my hobby time, but with spring break coming up I think I can get this sucker made! "That... doesn't look like a missile. What are you building, Stark?"

I do like the way the lords are portrayed, as sons of Dorn, they are proud and should be!

I will not pretend that my advice is sage or special, but I think that having a link to the page is fine, maybe, and this is totally up to you man, take all of the final writings that you want to stick with, and post them here as a final, and you can change the title of the thread to include your fluff. (Updating as you progress.)Also, some detail on campaigns, victories and losses, maybe. More character on a fighting force is always good, so I would suggest giving them a preffered way to wage war, or a preffered weapon.But, like I said, it is YOUR army, not mine Just some suggestions. ;)


I would go ahead and leave the fluff in the liber, as that's where it is meant to be on these wonderful forums, having the link in your signature will entice readers who like your posts to see more of your work, so that is fine enough.

The scythes would be honored to fight along such noble warriors as the crimson lords. Continue to do well and enjoy the lovely hobby!

Hey gang! Late night update from the soggy midwest. I'm plugging away at Cypher as an ally for my Crimson Lords (still very WIP). I love plastic conversions and I felt that Cypher needed a helmet to mask his identity. I would love some feedback though, so let me know how I am doing!

I like the masked Cypher, but he is a fallen and should'nt he be black?

The Wardens of Light were like golden blades, cutting down their enemies scarring the darkness.
