So!

 

I decided to keep myself motivated by making a blog on here of what i've been doing with my shiny new primaris stuff.  To start off with, i went with the Know No Fear set.  for those not familiar, that one comes with 1 unit each of Intercessors, Hellblasters, Inceptors, and a Gravis Captain. 

I've since added a box of Aggressors and 10-pack of intercessors to the collection.

 

I havent had much opportunity to actually play much in 8th, so most of this blog will be about my painting progress and any ideas i have on conversions.

So, with that, onto the models!

 

this was my test mini for the color scheme.  I wanted my primaris models to stand out from my usual guys, so i added silver into their lower leg armour plating so that later onwards, if i used anything converted upscale, the primaris units were easier to pick out.

Here's the Paint Recipe:

finally, today i started converting intercessors into a pair of lieutenants.  this is the first one, with a Stalker Bolt Rifle:

Love that sword!  :)


Losing 'hope' after 10k years just because of a big warp storm? Doesn't sound like my Blood Angels.

Never had hope to begin with; they had duty, and that was enough.

For your black portions, I would highly encourage a dark grey highlight on the edges of panels. This will help the model pop, and add some much-needed depth. I would also definitely suggest a black matte primer, like P3, or even Army Painter, if you can find it. You can do a light dusting of grey over the armor and then edge the panels, and it makes for some striking models.

 

I'm not personally a fan of the silver greaves and boots, but you seem to have executed it well, and if that's the way you want to do yours, then that's what you do.

 

I love the kits and greeblies on the new Primaris kits, I just don't enjoy the fluff or the cost of the new stuff. My own Red Scorpions are going to be a tad more traditional, though I'm happy to see more Red Scorpions, for sure. I'm looking forward to your progress!

 

EDIT: As an example of what I mean by edging the panels, here's one of my own Red Scorpions tactical marines to give you an idea.

BK, the paint job you're seeing right now is just my fast tabletop recipe; it's not my display case standard.  Highlights and such come later when i have my 3-color minimum so i'm not playing unpainted models in the stores.

 

Sete, luckily i havent started his paint yet so i took some more pics for you.

Most of the model is just basic Intercessor bits.  The only chopping is on the right arm.  Let me see if i remember what i used, as i was just buggering around.

the arm was the reloading one with the mag in his hand.  i cut that off at the wrist.

the hand is one of the knife ones in the kit where he had the blade pointing down.  i cut off the pommel and smoothed the top of his hand.  then i trimmed the blade just below the guard.

the sword was a blood angel one.  from the tactical squad i think?  it had a nice winged guard on it, so i trimmed the drop off the centre enough to get the brass to sit flush.

the handle is from a vanguard veteran thunder hammer.

i glued everything to the hand first, then carefully posed the arm and sword so they'd line up the way they did.
