Hi Gentlemen! 

 

I am very happy to report that I am finally back! To be frank I have quite missed you guys, but the son is finally a bit older and now I have my life back (partially). 

 

To get started, I have been fantasizing about a 1st company elite force for some time. 

 

I have been motivated by the new member of Battlebunnies blog Darien

 

http://battlebunnies...update-9.html.

 

I have painted Abaddon, but I have the pictures on the other computer. 

 

Do you guys have any cool black armor guides for HH

 

All the best, 

 

 

 

p.s. I have moved to Frankfurt, Germany. If anybody is here let me know !

Good evening, 

 

I have finally finished Maloghurst, who will be my counts as Master of Signal for my 1st company. I had two reasons for taking so long: 

 

1. My equipment was in Slovakia. 

2. I was searching for motivation and collecting tutorials on everything. To be honest I almost went crazy :-), but I am satisfied with the final result. 

 

Firstly I started with a test model from the BaC boxed set (on a side note I must say that the quality of the model is quite lackluster, as well as of the entire boxed set), I had difficulty doing the edge highlight, and to be honest I was not quite sure of the palette, afterwards I selected a much darker tone of red to suit the menacing look of the 1st company. Also I change a bit on the gold/silver as well as weathering which is quite difficult IMHO on black armor. In general I stuck to the color plate in the HH books, as well as I tried to portray the ideals and image of who they represent on the battlefield. Further below are the pictures of Maloghurst. 

 

Enjoy!

Good morning, last night I worked on my Loken Conversion, I felt that since he fights Abaddon he should pose a larger threat. I also created a weapon from 6 other weapons, not very effective, but I have learned something. 

 

Enjoy,

Very cool use of Khârn and loken parts. I like it. The maul/axe/whatrver that thing is could be a but much, especially as he already has powerfist, but rule of cool smashes every concern.

Open for Comissions, just PM me. The Wardens of Light were like golden blades, cutting down their enemies scarring the darkness.

Thanks! :-) My reasoning is that Abaddon has a PF and a PS, I wanted to give Loken a chance. However what would you think for a pistol?

The master of signal looks great! The Loken conversion is also really imaginative. I feel that the length of the maul/axe is a tad long to be a one handed weapon. Cool conversion regardless though, looking forward to seeing more

I was fighting with him for a bit, and I felt quite heretical doing so. Thanks!

In the beginning it was shorter but optically it looked too stubby, so I added the second handle on the rear part, from my perspective I am considering it a two handed weapon. Thank you!

Hi gents!

 

Since my last post I have been heavily invested in putting my army together, however still 2 spartans, 10 justaerin, 10 reavers, 5 heavy support (las), and the man himself (HORUS) to go...

I have finally finalized my painting scheme. And I have completed Abaddon, and two "shooty" reaver squad members. 

 

Enjoy!

Yep, but I also slightly increased his size in order to give the base a proper look. 

 

 

I am not a fan of plasma weaponry, however I have added some, any ideas on how to paint the plasma and what color?

I have assembled last night the heavy support squad, I must say the resin MKIV torsos are much smaller than the plastic hands/shoulder pads. I wanted to use my resin bits, as the whole squad is a sort of mix of remaining parts (same as the shooty reavers). Anyways once I have glued on the Lascannon followed by the shoulder pads I noticed the absurd difference and was absolutely furious. I planned to put them together in hour or so, and ended up spending the whole evening... So no painting done :(.
