I do like those Helverins a lot. Nice work on those gradients and the bases. :)

...and another one for the Weekly Primaris. This time a reiver with some bionic enhancements:

The dominus is moving ahead, but I had to get a few skitarii for tomorrow's game off the painting table first. Tomorrow I'll also pick up a killteam box and a delaque box for conversions, so I'll stay busy for a while.

Well done.

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 castellan knight is done. Had to improvise a faceplate, as the original face plate armour got used on the waist extender. With the next acastus knight in mind, the servohauler kit provided a fitting one.

And, as promised, the group shot of my knights. Originally I just wanted an atrapos...and the armigers were cheap...and the castellan might be fun...and now I accidentally built a knight house. #just40kthings

Yep, the deep red and wonderful fade is excellent, but the vivid green is the perfect accent that really brings the scheme together while adding some bright elements that really pop. Hum, I wonder why I would find a vivid green accent colour so pleasing?

I've only just noticed the turret mounted grav cannons. Nice conversion. It's so subtle I didn't notice it at first.

Thanks guys. The green is rather simple - ceramite white basecoat, then several layers (and/or drops) of waywatcher green. In reality, it's just a lot brighter and more vibrant than painted glow effects, while automatically creating gradients by pooling (and slightly darkening) the recesses. The primaris eyes are done the same way.

 

I've only just noticed the turret mounted grav cannons. Nice conversion. It's so subtle I didn't notice it at first. 

Yeah, the photo angle wasn't the best to show those cannons. Also, I filed down the side flaps of the turrets to make them at least a bit smaller. The other conversion things are the scratchbuilt head and hip extender, and the additional knee joints from Taromodelmaker. The additional height does help make the model more impressive, especially near the regular knights you sometimes see by the dozen.

One more primaris (on the left), and testing a new camera lens. Works out so far, but the upcoming months I'll probably spend mostly on my Raptors - I'm currently assembling and converting a Mastodon for them, then the new Vanguard units will come out. And those definitely look a 100% Raptors...

Will you design original Chapter symbols and Knight House coats-of-arms to decorate the Primaris Marines and Knights' shoulders?

To be honest, I have no idea. The problem with wet blended armour is that any flat logo (all decals, freehands with one color per color) would look weird on the gradients. If the primaris get extended (which might take a while, see Raptors Vanguard/Mastodon - those will probably take half a year), I'll probably give them glue-on shoulder plate logos (likely from IH), but so far there is nothing explicitly planned. Right now, I'm converting a superheavy siege tank to a sneaky FOB/command tank, as weird as that may sound...sweat.gif

Ah nice catch! Great look on that Castellan. I see this and wish I hadn’t stopped kid mine but I just really couldn’t use it.

Absolutely LOVE the scheme on your Reivers.  The green contrast on your swords and plasma weapons is also very bold and eye-catching.  Bravo!

Moar primaris!!!

 

Now I've got at least one troops unit and one HQ, so everything from now on is (in theory) playable. Next up (once I can cast my own reiver helmets) would be a second squad of intercessors, and getting the reivers/hellblasters to minimum squad size. Followed by the Iron Father once released.

And once the AdMech tank is out, I'll add a few of them, of course.

Moar stuff - gave the good old 30k Mechanicum LandRaider (a.k.a. Macrocarid Explorator) a new spin, as fire support LandRaider for my AdMech primaris. The guns are magnetized, in case FW ever decides to drop rules for it. Despite discontinuing it.

 

aimg_1012kej6s.jpg

aimg_1015lhkmx.jpg

 

In preparation for Armies on Parade, his big unplayable brother is currently receiving a new spin, with an even more unplayable loadout:

aimg_1019pyjs2.jpg

 

Gun is only half painted, and crew is still missing. Will finish it after ETL, which I'll use to get as much AdMech primaris and knights stuff done - there's a trio of Moirax on its way...

Thanks. The paint scheme is not the most complicated - the flat brush wet blends are done in an hour or two. From then on, the steps are not very numerous - the Ordinatus plasma gun for example has only received about 2-3h of painting time so far...

Excellent work on the AdMech vehicles. I'm disappointed with the Ordinatus' bulimic design- I think it will look much better with an armored crew compartment in front, maybe one transplanted from the Goliath truck- but that's not your fault.

The goliath truck's design doesn't add up at all. My first thought was combining a Krios as front part and a Triaros as rear part to get enclosed parts, but let's just say the dimensions don't add up at all. Not that it would have mattered in the end, with still no rules in sight.
