I am looking forward to seeing a third manreaper sarge. Everything in this army is fantastic but those guys make my jaw drop. I really think a squad of them would make for a sweet bodyguard for an up and coming centurion. *hint hint, please make more if able :)

Seeing the recent additions get some paint promises for some awesome upcoming updates. I also like the upscale CSM. Love to see him finished off and see if he carries the same bulk as your earlier upscaled marines.

Also, huge thanks for the tutorial and tips for the mk6 armor. I’ve finally knuckled up and rolled some green stuff and busted out the cord/tentacle maker. I have a few test subjects curing now. :)

DuskRaider: Cheers! Count the Seven!
hushrong: Thanks! Also no problem, looking forward to see what you come up with.

Been a while, I've had a few games with Mekol and our new campaign is coming to a close with one last game before we move deeper in the Isstvan V atrocity with traitor forces going for the heads of his Raven Guard.
Death Guard are coming together slowly and purposefully, but I wanted to take a little break and paint something else so I picked up a few models from the cabin and painted them from start to finish.

Here's a small Prosecutor squad for my Sisters of Silence allies. They are such wonderful models to paint, and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.
It's pretty much the exact recipe you can find on Warhammer TV with the exception of the cloaks being blue.

Here's a closeup prior to pigments on the bases.

I also tested out a colour scheme for my Imperial Army and I'm quite happy with it. They currently have only a flat basecoat and a blue wash on the coats and a Agrax Earthshade wash on the rest. I could churn these out pretty fast to have a "table top quality" force in a jiffy, but I think they will look great going over the colours again to make them look a bit more crisp.

To finish off I also made a few vexillas for the guardsmen, they are now based and I've greenstuffed all the missing detail on the rifles.

That's it for now, C&C most welcome as always.
Cheers!

Great combo of colours for the Vostroyans; and the scheme works nicely on the Prosecutors, too. Nice to see a range of skintones on the Sisters.

Beautiful work on the Sisters of Silence. The Vostroyans look promising.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Thanks to your help I’ve got a handful of mk6 Alpha Legion operatives and more to come when I get back from my trip. Your mk6 work also gave me an idea to make mk5 armor as well but I need to refine it.

The Sisters of Silence look great. The paint job for the armor and flesh look fantastic but the blue of their capes really make them pop in my eyes. It’s such a great color you’ve painted and combo’d with their armor. The guardsmen are looking great as well and I love the new additions to their ranks.

Those sisters look terrific. I'm looking away now before I impulse-buy a squad out of sheer desire to paint some myself. The blue cloaks were a good choice, they complement the bronze nicely.

 

What did you use for fixing the rifles on your Vostroyans, by the way?

How did you scale up the CSM from the new box on the last page?
