Any progress is good progress, and the boring base coats always seem to take the longest too so I'm sure you'll be catching up soon. Plus getting to see so many Custodes together and finished, all shiny and chrome gold is always worth the effort thumbsup.gif

Time to bite the bullet and begin the hard part of this series of vows, the numbers:

 

I, librisrouge, rise to the challenge of E TENEBRAE LUX on the side of the Agents of the Imperium and vow to complete: 18 Inquisition Acolytes, organized into three squads of six, each equipped with storm bolters, for a total value of 180 Points on or before September 1st, 2019. Success will bring me eternal glory and failure will doom me to wear the Badge of the Oathbreaker until the year-end.

I want to get this entire 2k inquisition army completed this summer and these guys are the part I'm looking forward to least. I'm not good with painting numbers. Why I play Imperial Guard is a little beyond me at times (because they're sexy) but I love these Necromunda models and they make such awesome acolytes. I just wish I could make more than just 18 of them but the Rule of 3 caps me out there. Ah, well.

Wow, librisrouge, that's amazing speed there! Congratulations on your completion and I sure hope you make your 2k mark! 

 

@ Gore Crow: Those look very promising, very promising indeed! Keep going! 

 

UPDATED TO THIS POINT!

Here's an update from my Allarus: 

The gold is done, I've moved on to the silver. Once the metallics are out of the way, things will go a bit faster. I'll also block some colours in, to get a better feel for the overall composition.

On a side note: Had my first Custodes game tonight and actually won - 1,250 pts pure Custodes vs plasma-heavy All-Primaris. Woohoo. Need to paint more! :)

Excellent work on the gold - it looks very... liquid! The Allarus are very impressive minis and you sure do justice too them!

@Kenzaburo - I love your gold work, it makes those Allarus suits look like real heavy hardware!

 

You're also right about everything speeding up once the metallics are done. I'm excited to hopefully have my first custodes finished this week! I've just got to finish the gems and decide how I'm going to do the blades and bases.

I'm probably going to strip those guardians at the back too as they were my first gold recipe trial and they look bad, so that's the start of second vow if the bikes don't take too long. msn-wink.gif

Those look great, mate! Also thanks for the kind words.

 

Temperatures are skyrocketing in Germany this week, so I'm not so certain how much I'll get done. I'll also be in London for the weekend, attending a Cult of Paint painting class at Bad Moon Cafe, but I won't work on the Custodes there. Still, I hope to come back from that with even more painting knowledge, that I can use for the Emperor's Lions.

 

Until then I might stick to some base building and building my Achillus Contemptor for a possible second vow. :)

 

I gotta say though, it's kinda cool that we are doing so well in the first month of ETL - thanks to libris and his insane speedpainting skills. Maybe we can get some more of our ranks tojoin in this great event.

I'm in the same boat with having different gold recipes I've used over time, can I ask what you use to strip the models? Wardens are looking real good!
