I like the weathering effects. Excellent work.

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.

The shaved heads actually make those heads passable. Great job!

Brilliant and gritty, double thumbs up from me. Like Pheidias said the shaved heads really improve those sculpts.

 

Were I to be nitpicky I'd say tidy up the black rims as there's some brown spillover, but you've almost certainly thought of that already. I really, really like these guys.

I can but it's not a great priority right now ;)

Thanks. Yes, the rims got stained with weathering powder - which I didn't really notice until I took the photos - and have since been cleaned up.

I'm glad the shaved heads have proven so popular. I think it really helps.
The stubble was simply Lahmian medium and light grey, as per Duncan's tutorial :tu:

Thanks for the praise!

I just completed a Mentor Legion librarian in terminator armour. I like the old, original metal TDA librarian and wanted to do one as close as possible to that so I de-wolfed the Finecast SW TDA rune-Priest, converted his storm bolter to a combi-plasma (okay, that's not a throwback to the old model. It's a tactical choice) and added a chest from the Bretonnian men-at-arms box, a FW etched brass Aquila and some scrolls. And a tall base to give the old boy a boost when he stands next to his more modern TDA peers.

And with the terminator squad

Very cool librarian, I was actually thinking about doing the same thing for my Ultramarines not too long ago.

Thanks. If you like the old look of the librarian - I did the conversion because I wanted a librarian like the original metal one - then I recommended it. With the Rune-priest being Finecast it's not so difficult to 'clean him up'. Removing the trinkets and wolf-stuff from the front of the chest took the longest. You could always cut him in two at the waist and add a spacer (or use modern TDA legs) if you wanted him to be a bit taller. I did make some GS bodysuit/piping between the torso and arms for a little more bulk there and to pose the arms outward (rather than directly forward) a little.

Awesome weathering on the white. Really like what you did with the scouts. Never been a huge fan of the head sculpts but looking at yours it honestly wasn't something that bothered me. The retro termi librarian looks great with the rest of the squad. Really enjoyable to have a read through.
