The defiler conversion is top notch. Will you be getting the new Abaddon at some point ? He would look good in the clean paint style you have going on here.

Thanks Megavolt!

 

I Don't think I'll be using Abby unless I can think of a conversion that excites me. Don't get me wrong, I think the model is great but its just not my cup of tea.

 

I've been having some fun piecing together some possessed these past couple of days, makes a nice change of pace to painting gold trim >_<

I am thinking a conversion of Abaddon to Tartaros plate, he is a mix of that with indomni plate. Sculpting would get him there.

So I decided that my Berserkers were looking decidedly boring. I wanted to bring a bit more character to the next five I was painting and if they looked good , go back and spruce ups the first five.

 

First up was the icon of wrath. My first attempt at freehand

( Following this amazing guide https://hullwarhamme...gns-on-banners/)

While not a total failure it wasn't really sized well and I hadn't planned it out thoroughly enough

 

Heres the second attempt.

Much happier with this one, while not perfect its definitely an improvement. I look forward to refining the technique when I make another icon bearer for my possessed.

 

Heres the 5 man Zerker squad completed

All the Zerker family together !

Also got 3 more bikes done. Glad to see the back of them actually !

And the entire biker gang together .

Not sure what to get stuck into next painting-wise . I've got a chain lord but I'm not 100% happy with the conversion. The defiler needs base coating and I'm having fun making possessed and a couple more HQ's for some variety. 

 

I might also build 5 more Bolter CSM just to be able to field a brigade or double battalion.

Also got a new army to start of the pointy eared variety !

 

Happy hobbying everyone !

Hot damn those bikers look awesome in a 10 man squad! I'm totally stealing the banner freehand too for my Chosen banner bearer!

Nice work!

Take the armour you wear and reforge it now. Scrape clean the colours of isolation & abandonment. Carve off the tokens of a Throne bound cadaver.
Darkness & burnished gold are your symbols now. A star of auric colour adorns your plate.
You knelt as a single man from a past cast in shame & shadow.
Rise now as a brother of the 1st Legion of the Long War."

Those Zerkers look great! And you did a wonderful job with the freehand. I too will have to steal that idea.

What paints did you use on the banner? Those colors are impressive. And is it the same color scheme that you used on your Rhino's red panels and your Chosens' robes?

I wish I could take them as a squad of 10 but sadly its 9 max. I've got two different champion load outs. That banner tutorial is so good, I might have to try something similar on the hatch doors of my first rhino.

Thank you ! Yes all the reds are pretty much the same. Gory red mixed with black about 50/50 to get the desired Burgundy colour. Then for highlights just add more gory red until your final highlight is pure gory red.

Managed to get my chain lord all finished. Can't wait to field him, when ever that may be.

Think I'll tackle the defiler next and convert my possessed and 5 CSM when I get stuck or bored.

The Combi Bolter and chain glaive are from Kromlech.

The chainglaive handle is a bit flimsy, mine broke off in foam storage so I just made it a short handle.

@SmiteThemAll: good to see another fan of Kromlech! I love their shoulder pads too!

Nice work with the chain Lord.
