Quick update while I am figuring out what masking and painting I'll be doing in the next couple of days.
The red I'll be working with
There's a pinkish reflection from the flash that isn't actually present and the red is a bit darker than what you see.
The Templar shoulder pads, one of which will bear some manner of Maltese cross
The trim will be a weathered brass color, not bright, but a bit washed out.
Upper torsos and heads. The torsos still need their bright silver edge highlights, as well as detailing on things like the muzzle of the melta and some pipes. The heads need detailing as well, but not a whole lot as they'll be covered by their helms.
Other bits with potential for red stuff on them
And finally, the exhaust stacks. The lower metal piping still needs some light drybrush work and a little more depth in some of the recesses, but overall I like how the exhaust gas effect came out.
AND SO IT BEGINS...OUR JOURNEY TO VICTORY.
NOW WE KNOW WHO OUR BAND OF BROTHERS ARE, WHO WILL WADE THROUGH THE PITIFUL SANCTUARIES OF THE WEAK, THE FAITHLESS, AND THE ALIEN, AND BRING DESOLATION TO EACH AND EVERY ONE.
WE ARE THE ANGELS OF DEATH, THE EMPEROR'S DIVINE INSTRUMENT, THE RADIANT LIGHT OF HIS PURITY.
LET YOUR FURY IGNITE THE SHADOWS WHERE OUR ENEMIES ATTEMPT TO HIDE AND LEAVE NOTHING BUT THEIR ASHES AS EVIDENCE OF THEIR PATHETIC EXISTENCE.
GRIND THEIR ASHES INTO THE UNHOLY GROUND WHERE THEY SOUGHT TO HIDE.
THE EMPEROR CALLS TO US TO ACTION NOW.
HE PROMISES HIS STRENGTH TO EACH OF US.
HE PLACED WITHIN EACH OF US A FULL MEASURE OF HIS WRATH.
IT IS OUR DUTY TO OPEN THE GATES OF HIS FURY AND UNLEASH OUR HATE.
LET NO ONE EVER DOUBT THAT A VISITATION FROM HIS MIGHTY ANGELS WAS MANIFEST.
HIS RETRIBUTION HAS COME, LEAVE HIS ENEMIES WITH NOTHING.
