Brilliant start brother!

Though you didn't have to wait this long to showcase your stuff. Any chance I could get a better look at the Templar bros shoulder pads?

Thank you @ u @   I just wanted to have enough done so it  didint seem like I was just proxying most of my Black Templars ( even tho im doing a good bit of that as well ) 

Templar Brethren Shoulder Pads 

Spoiler


I  prime white  use  Eshin Grey  shaded with Nuln oil to effect the black   but I  dont paint the shoulder guards  to keep the white background , for the Gold effects its just Runelord brass , shaded with nuln oil , usually shading the entire model is like the last step  gives the models this dirty  weve been fighting sort of look that  I really like. 

# Dumpster  no  Talent painting  that somehow comes out alright.

Good man. I was thinking about doing this before heading over to Heresy Blood Angels. But you've done justice to them brilliantly.

That is a really great force.
I started out with Heresy Ultras but decided to focus on Scouring Ultras based around the time when Guilliman was hopping from system to system crushing traitors and aliens with his power fist.

Also so I could save a bit of cash and use some mkVII marines lol...

These are genuinely my favorite black templars!!! I love the muted schemes and how everything is wonderfully consistent with a slight Imperial Fists twist.

Space Wolves are badasses that operate just barely within the rules. 13th Co. didn't even know there were rules applying to how badass they could be. DepthCharge on the Space Wolves

 

I'm so pleased that GW have gone to such great lengths to produce these awesome Space Wolves basing kits. Wraithwing on the Thousand Sons Rubic Marine release

 

"The Fell Hand is a name that has been passed on through out the Legion. When one warrior bearing it died, the name is left to be earned by another. Thus it was passed from Floki to Volund to Erik to Geigor. And then the tradition died, because censored.gif  Bjorn got the name and proceeded to live for 10 censored.gif millenia." - Sagas of the Wolf Priests. Wispy

Thank you  everyone for the compliments , It really means a lot when yer work is appreciated. Were all so hard on ourselves when we paint so it certainly feels good to put up something your proud of despite the thousand little things you feel might be wrong with it and have people give you  feedback.

 Hopefully moving forward ill be able to paint some other cool stuff for these guys to add to them. 

" We began in ignorance, fighting a war that we did not understand against weapons we had never dreamt existed. We were unready, we were vulnerable; we were weak. But in those first moments our enemies gave us strength. The strength to live, to rise from the bloody fields, to march on but not to fall; all this is ours now , and was not before. "

Looking great, i really like the black. A bit more characterful than the usual gloss. I especially like the cataphractii, they look pretty sweet in Templars colours. And Sigismund, he's awesome!

Thank you. 

The Black for my Models starts off as Eshin Grey and is then Shaded with undiluted nuln oil over the panels you want to actually appear black.  

This works with either a black or a white undercoat with very little variation  though I find  priming in white a little easier for me.

Thanks, i'll give it a whirl - it gives a very dynamic black without the need for much edge highlighting :)

Good Luck I  hope it comes out alright , You  can be very liberal with the nuln oil ! D:  


Ive got 15 templar bodies right now and no  idea what to build with them   , Ive got 10  shields so maybe i  should make Breachers? or maybe destroyers?   any suggestions ?

They look really nice.

 

I take it the Templars are different to Imperial Fist upgrades, as in you can't scatter then through tactical squads to add a bit of flavor?

I think Imperial fists have Phalanx Warders as breachers or certainly an upgraded version of breachers...

Maybe run them as a counts as warders unit (proto sword brethren), Shields, power weapons and bolt weaponry?

I picked Slipstreams brain a bit in the tactical thread and got him to give up the secret to effective breacher squads  8 bolters 2 Graviton guns so I  set up 10 of the boys like that 

tumblr_nweomuyXXi1tdqdkto1_540.jpg

I know the combat shields arent exactly boarding shields but damnit my artistic vision shall not be compromised !  D:  

Ill end up painting the shields black  with gold accents ( like polux'  shield  )  to denote them as breacher marines

Looks good. I bet the Templar terminator shields would be way too big for the job.
