Here are some WIP pictures of my Sons of Horus. I initially bought a BaC and BoP box set which provided the guts of my two armies, Emperor's Children (see sig) and this Sons of Horus army. I am expanding on them slowly.
This army is much more rushed than my ECs, as I am trying my best to get it table top ready for when my friends come over from abroad for a few games. Quality is not as high as a result. What you currently see has been done in roughly 2 weeks and a half, none of it is finished, just... playable.
First of all, a group shot.
10 Marine MkIII squad
10 Marine MkIV squad
1 Sicaran Venator
For the painting I draw inspiration from the internet, to be honest. I'm not very adventurous when it comes to paint schemes. I'm trying to recreate a fluffy army that is not completely retarded to play with. Also, given the move to 8th in the future, no use to sweat to much on the list building. I'd rather give a claw or a sword to a sergeant here and there rather than go all power-fist for competitive play, for the sake of variety.
MkIII marine Sergeant. First time painting the face using only washes. Quite happy with the result!
Venator. Not much to say. No sponsons yet and some cabling hasn't been glued yet. Planning on painting an eye of horus on the flanks and eventually high-lighting the edges when I have more time.
Deimos Rhino. Awfully difficult kit to assemble... had to use greenstuff extensively. I'm using the BaC Word Bearer glyph transfers. My Cthonian is pretty rusty so I can't really make the difference with Word Bearer old-Cadia script anyways
Some explanations on the color scheme: I am trying to incorporate some black pieces of armor to show the slow transition of the green armor of the 16th legion to the full black colors of the Black Legion. The "color contamination" symbolizing the process of turning traitor and Chaos aligned. It also shows that as the XVIth rushed to Terra, battle damage replacements were done hastily and were left black, as they probably had little time to paint their armor.
I currently have 10 reavers waiting for MkII jumppacks, 5 terminators from BaC and am waiting to receive a reaver command squad, a Spartan and the Arch Traitor himself, Horus.
Will keep you guys updated!
