the hair is currently just bleached bone with a sepia wash over it. I'll do more with it eventually, probably highlight with bleached bone and maybe a little screaming skull eventually.

 

 

 

 

 

oh and i fixed the left eye on the sword of sanguinius lieutenant as I realised (from the pics i posted) that it was a bit oddly shaped

Didn't want to nitpick so i'm very glad you fixed it, also when you have time would you go into more detail on how you adjusted the LT's sword arm? I was planning on cutting at the wrist and maybe using a sang guard encarmine blade for a swap but it sounds like you did an arm swap with a reiver?

 

 

yeah the moment I saw the eye in the picture i sighed lol.

 

for the arm it was:

 

the lieutenant arm from below the elbow.

a reiver arm that had the right general pose to it which i removed the arm below the elbow and attached the lieutenant part to.

 

really was that simple :) (If i do it again i'll take photos)

Thanks both :)

Btw @Silas7 (and anyone else) please don't hesitate to point out areas for improvement, even though the plan is to get things to the relatively simple standard of the squad I have so far first, I do intend to then bring them up to a higher level so feedback will help for that.

Hi All,

 

I've not done a whole lot since my last post I don't think - I've painted some bases and base coated various things and built a fair number of other things, I believe I've painted a few more heads as well.

I also got the super heavy grav tank, which has been build and partially undercoated, will get photos of that when I have some time (along with various other things).

But as part of Blood & Zeal, I had hoped to try and do my gravis captain, however life commitments meant I didnt get to start it till thursday and then more commitments meant I didn't get much time over the weekend...

So here is my progress, I suspect I shall fail my vow (which sucks), but i'd rather do that than rush the model honestly.

 

So here is my current progress:

 

med_gallery_14877_13354_416985.jpg

 

I've asked LutherMax for some help with conceptionalising the fur cloak he's meant to have, the version the art has simply won't look good on an actual model (going over the backpack). I need to add some detail to both shoulderpads (chapter symbol on left and probably a winged blood drop like my tycho had for the right, possibly a smaller less OTT one). Plus a few blood drop pendants here and there.

 

The loin cloth also needs to be smoothed out.

 

parts list so far:

Iron Halo - Terminator Captain

Head - BA upgrades

Sword - Sanguinary Guard

lower sword arm and all fist arm, back, upper torso and legs - Gravis Captain

Pelvis - aggressor

upper right arm and shoulder - aggressor

 

Spoiler

He looks promising.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

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.

What an awesome army! Your work on the faces is particularly impressive and the magnifier seems to be a great idea.

 

I'm currently painting up my Death Guard, so I'm not doing anything so clean, but in the future this will be really helpful for me.

 

I can't wait to see them all finished up as a whole army. Well done!

hehehe... finished whole army... lol... hehe.

I really am hoping to make real progress with these, already i've made more with them than i had with the stupid number of regular astartes I had, but im still incredibly slow. I appreciate the kind words!

 

Captain undercoated. No Cloak for now. May add one eventually... maybe.

a few of the other bits I've been doing:

 

Intercessor sergeant I made the moment we got power swords (totally due to me constantly messaging them on facebook with stuff to prove why we should get them...)

gallery_14877_13354_547263.jpg

 

a shot of all the Intercessors I'd built, i've since made a couple extra models and shuffled which models are in each unit around a bit. Buying another set today to do for Blood and Zeal and bump it to full size squads.

gallery_14877_13354_141084.jpg

 

 

And my Astraeus super heavy alongside a tarantula turret, both of which has had the undercoating begun since this picture was done.

I'll put some more pics up later of my own sanding and gap filling necessities, mines built but I left the repulsor plates off to spray them black.

I recommend taking your time to heat up parts with hot water and a hair dryer a lot to get them as close fitting as possible. Then gap fill with miliput because it sands nicely. Let that dry and then sand it down.

There are no obvious gaps left on mine but it took a couple of days of cleaning to sort out.

I noticed you have a few broken aerials as well, mine has the exact same ones broken which is a shame.

little one on the top section that slots in... I've got your picture and highlighted it:

 

med_gallery_14877_13354_33063.jpg

 

 

anyway, as for filling, I didn't have to do a fat lot on the top or sides, managed to get all that fitting very nicely with a little filing and a lot of hot water/hair dryer time.

bottom had a lot to deal with, some of the parts were a bit "rugged" around the end (forgeworld even sent me replacement parts for the main hull... but the replacement was even worse than the original so i used the original).

Nice captain - the green stuff on the abs is great.

I always love the look of finished forgeworld models but I don't have the patience to go to that much trouble hairdrying/filing/greenstuffing given the cost - kudos to you for doing so. I expect it'll look great when done.

This is an excellent project log, thanks for sharing it. Your captains are very inspiring. I’ll likely steal some of these ideas for my Novamarines!
