Excellent work.

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.

I like the nuclear grenades on the harness.

I like the nuclear grenades on the harness.

Yep, part of the background I thought up for these guys.

As "leftovers"/Pile of Shame from the primaris project, they still hang around with Cawl and his forces. Even if their weaponry is not the healthiest (the grenades might as well be Radium grenades) and the 10k years of tinkering produced quite a few specimens in need of a mind wipe/bionic replacements, they are still capable enough to shower the enemies of the Omnissiah with lead.

 

Besides the armigers currently on the painting table, I'm converting a regular primaris chaplain to an iron father. I mean, that guy already has a skull mask, how could I not take that guy and improve him a bit?

That red blending is out of this world.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

Yep, and it even works on layered armour. Two out of 3 Moirax are done, the last one (volkite) is currently taking its soap bath...

Those look great and I'm impressed with how fast they were painted.

Yeah, let's say ETL is motivating me to work on that pretty much all afternoon. Usually I'm too lazy for that.

 

Besides, the paint scheme is rather basic in terms of complexity.

-flat brush wet blending for armour plates - maybe 2h for both, rather less than that

-drybrush metal on the dark parts, paint metal surfaces (Boltgun, Retribution), nuln oil wash

-glowing parts get painted Ceramite white, then 2 layers of Waywatcher green. A lot brighter and more vibrant than layered effects or airbrush.

 

That's mostly it, except for certain details. Bases are drybrushing grey in 2 steps, doing the lava in 5 layers (2 white, 3 Ryza rust) and drybrushing the surroundings in Ryza too.

Looks good enough, and it's fast enough to actually build a playable army with that scheme.
