Just broke the 5,000 point line with my Custodes, with over 2,000 to do before I get that Orion:

Trajann Valoris: What a hunk of a mini. The feathers I did with Reaper Sparkling Amethyst as a bit of an experiment, and the lion pelt I painted to match my White Lion from Kingdom Death: Monster. (And yeah, I need to go back and get some better photos, was kind of doing this whole shoot in a hurry.)

Getting that inlay done was a bit of a challenge - I'm very near sighted and the way the correction on my glasses works for means everything looks smaller to me, especially close up!

Excellent work. I wonder where the Custodes hunted a lion to make into a cape? Do the Custodes' initiation rites include sending their recruits to a death world, and ordering them to kill one of the predators there, or die?

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 already mentioned where he got his ;)

Ixion Hale: Still hurts that he's like $76 US, but I was at LVO and my partner is an enabler. Used Turbodork's  3D Glasses colorshift paint on the cape.

Looks amazing, your shot inspired me to take a family photo of my lot!

 

Only 3,800 points here, but have a Caladius and Pallas that are half painted currently.

Shield-Captains gonna Shield-Captain. I still maintina that one one on the left was the original Valdor sculpt but then they realized he wasn't *nearly* extra enough.

The raised detail on cloaks/capes are the bane of my existence. I think on that one since it's resin it's a bit better defined.

And my current Troops, 10 Guardians with spears and 8 with sword and board. Need to flesh them out a bit more.

What gold recipe are you using?

 

  • Spray with Retributor Armor.
  • Brush on a layer or two of Retirbutor Armor (yes, the can is hella expensive, but the time and hassle it saves in making this step so much easier is dead worth it).
  • Shade with Reikland Fleshshade Gloss.
  • Highlight with Auric Armor Gold.

 

The eagle prow on the jetbike is Valdor Gold shaded with Nuln Oil Gloss.

ETA: And my pre-Orion to-do list:

 

  • 3 Aquilon Terminators with fists and pew-pew (arms and guns magnetized, currently being painted)
  • 9 Venatrai (to be done 3 at a time between other things)
  • 3 Aquilon Terminators with talons and flamepikes (arms magentized)
  • 5 Guardians with pythrite spears
  • 5 Sagattarium Guard
  • 3 of the FW bikes (ugh)
  • Second fist and two blaze cannons for the Telemon
  • Second Caladius (unless I find enough motivation to try and trade it for someone's Caladius Annihilator they have laying around - which isn't that big a deal)

Excellent work on the Dreadnought. Is the raised foot meant to make the walker look as if it's actually walking, or will you put something underneath?

He’s very much in motion, as a contrast to my more static Achillus.
