The gash is uneven... I cannot picture any way a decently trained Librarian could do it, apart form the warp-stuff, but then - why would there only be one gash instead of multiple chaotic slashes?

 

Fury of the Ancients... you draw a line between the psyker and the target biggrin.png

 

 

The only thing that bothers me are those white knee-caps as they kinda blend in with the cloak and this makes the librarian less pronounced. On one hand - that's your color scheme. On the other, consider that Librarians' suits of armor are supposed to be uni-formally blue and mostly the left shoulder pad denotes chapter allegiance. in that light, you might make the knee-caps blue a well, thus making the Librarian more pronounced.

 

Great points and I appreciate your input. I decided to invert my color scheme because I didn't want an all blue model. I'm using the same scheme on my Primaris Librarian conversion (gravis captain with a few changes) and I like it on there. I think once highlights are on the knees it might help to make them stand out. I also think your comment about it looking better once all done is spot on. I love this scheme for my main units when it's done, but from start to about 80% I hate it and think it looks terrible.

You are a busy hobbyist!

I discovered your thread and went through it from beginning till end.

Great work on your homebres chapter.

I would love an overview picture of the entire chapter if possible.

Keep it up!

Took some time off from a little burnout and got right back on the failure train with my airbrush and power swords. I think it's good to share failures as well as successes. I spoke to some folks and got some advice so I'll try again in a few days. I think I'm going to practice on something disposable so I can try some flow improver and PSI changes and test results.

After a two week hiatus I got a brush in hand tonight. I decided to start working on my contemptor for a change of pace. I'm at a standstill with my librarians as it is. Getting this model done should hopefully help me with my AT woes since I tend to struggle with that in larger games.

Interesting way of cutting the Contemptor's knee joint. Gap-filling has been very well executed!
Looking forward to seeing it completed. What weapon have you chosen for his other arm?

Thanks! It was nerve wracking when I cut the knee. It was my first attempt at converting anything and for some reason I decided it was a good idea to start with a $60 model. I wish I could redo it and leave the blue plate attached to the lower portion and have the cut go behind the top instead of the bottom but what's done is done.

 

The back cork has both weapons, two twin las cannons. I plan on running this as a mortis contemptor to start in my games. I've also got the kheres auto cannon and combat arm from the kit that I'll paint up after so I can use this when I play the Betrayal at Calth game.

Yup, I wished I would have done it that way, oh well. If I get a second one I can always try again.

Got the first layer of steel blocked in and base coat done on my base. I think I want to try and get the legs and base done so I can attach them and them move on to the body.

Think I found out how to get the blue on my contemptor but have it stand out as a relic. Vallejo Gunmetal blue with a steel/silver highlight. I need to lightly wash it but I like what I see. I'm going to do this on the knees and shoulders of the model, and I'll see how I can get this translated over to my venerable as well since that technically doesn't have any knees that are going to be painted.

Finished the legs and base for my contemptor and got them attached. I'll work on the torso next.
