When I got the grand master edition last year I was dead set on Legio Astorum, painted one blue titan and decided against it! I always do good guys, so I've decided instead to do the baddest of the bad guys!

Sadly I painted all the knights from the box as loyalists, guess I'll just have to buy some more!

You can just paint Chaos stars over loyalist icons as they begin their descent into madness.

Great work!

That’s really nicely done. The paint has gone on really well and does a great job of bringing out the details of the kit.

C+C always welcome on my Titanic Plog. Should also be painting Crimson Fists or something.

Very crisp painting, particularly around the plasma coils. I also like the different red stripe on the plasma arm and the checks on the volcano cannon arm.

The paint job on the Warlord is sublime - excellent work.

Finished up a reaver a little while back, just got round to taking photos. Changed the legion of my 'for scale' dudes too, they're now Sons of Horus. The Warmaster's legion and the Warmaster's legio!

Gorgeous work. Where did you get the basing items by the way (not the marines, but the rest of it)? I'd like to do something similar with mine.

 

Looking at your Warlord again did make me think the World Eaters looked a little bit like they were guarding the Warlord, which amused me (I need to get out more).

it's just textured plasticard and stuff from my bits box, the reaver base is a couple of roofs from civitas imperialis buildings and a fuel tank from an imperial knight thermal cannon.  The lampposts are 0.8mm brass rod with a little bit of shaved down sprue for the lamp, the roads are 240grit sandpaper and the mud textures are done with baking soda. 

 

World Eaters have gone completely now, got SoH on the warlord too, replaced the rhino with a Sicarian, will have to put a photo up at some point.

I second that.

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.

Thank you for sharing some of your basing recipe. The sandpaper road is a great idea.

600 grit would probably be a better scale, but it doesn't drybrush as well

Bit of progress on some Warhounds tonight.

Hopefully finish these before the end of the month, then I'm probably gonna do some knights.

Finished off the bases for my Warhounds this afternoon, they still need pigment fixer and varnish but there's no new colour to go on:

Finished off the Warhounds this afternoon, pretty pleased with them smile.png

 

Weapons are all magnetised for easy loadout changes, though like everyone else they'll be Vulcan Megabolter / Plasma Blastgun most of the time.

And here's a shot of the maniple so far, I have another Warlord to assemble but I'd really like to pick up another Reaver so the melta/chainfist reaver kit will likely be the next thing I add, along with some fancy forgeworld weapons.
