All of my collected experience with painting and weathering, painting White armour, airbrushing, mixing colours and use of weathering-liquids/powders led me to this.

And Im strangely comfortable with it.

Enter the Crimson path.

Another day, another legion! A strong start brother, the battered and gory look suits Angron's sons well. Will these chaps be getting any insignia? The blue knees and shoulders would really pop with some white markings.

Yeah i went full circle. Had to scale down my projects because They overwhelmed me. Now i keep my raven Guard and Ultramarines, and This World eater-project, i need a traitor army and World eaters was the first 30k army i begun painting, but failed to paint how i wanted. I did not have the skills yet to do What my vision wanted.

Ive stripped or sold the rest.

But now i do :)

They Will get transfers and free hand symbols. I need to order from FW but cant for now :(

Looking good!

Also, how’d you do the brass, if you wouldn’t mind sharing?

I get you man, I've streamlined my projects a few times, I always end up with more than I can focus on and do justice to.

Thanks man! Sure! Its a base of GW Iron warrior then a layer of GW warplock bronze. Vallejo brass slightly diluted is next. Wash with agrax earthshade then a little sponge weathering with Iron warrior 👍🏻

I’m jotting that down in my notes and adding some paints to my buy list. Definitely want to try it out with some black armored marines. Thanks!

Breachers look awesome. The weathering and wear & tear still looking phenomenal and really knock the sweet paint jobs out of the park! The bases look great too! Is it plastic sheet, insulated wire, and some kind of mesh? When I run out of those GW mechanicus-ish bases I’m going to have to copy that from your too.

My only nitpick is to return one day and drill out those bolters.

Thanks mate! Yeah the bases im proud of! I saw a tutorial on youtube with great results. It involves meching from mosquito-net, food packaging plastic (which are great, cool texture on these plastic packages), straws and steelwire as piping and cables, and some sheets of textured plastic from evergreen👍🏻

Wanna learn more about your weathering technique. I’ve tried sponges before but always end up getting way too much paint and it looks like I’m decorating my house and sponging the walls instead of battle damage on plate! Any tips???

The Breachers are off to a good start, the rich blue shields will really help them stand out from the crowd, the glow of the Cataphractii's choom is nicely done too.

The terminator and centurion are looking good! and I am excited to see you work on Khârn! I'm betting money you are getting the FW one, right? And if so are you building him out of the box or do you have any plans to spruce him up a bit?

Sure! The thing is that even tho sponge weathering looks random and just dabbing the model with a colour-soaked sponge it is more than that. At least for me.

I approach sponge-weathering like a very deliberate application of “chipping”. Before every sponge-application I think carefully where to put it, I also try to mix small chipping with a few larger chipping, that will add the impression of randomness.

Usually less is more, so after one pass of sponging (usually focused on places on armour that would see most tear and damage; lower legs and feet, chest, shoulder pads, hard edges on other places) I put that model aside and continue with next model.

I can go back to the first model several hours later or even next day and look with new eyes and see if I’m happy or maybe another pass is required.

I also think that certain chapters or legions is more suited to heavy weathering; world eaters, death guard, iron warriors, iron hands, maybe imperial fists and blood angels come to mind. Some others I feel like it’s fitting with a little less weathering , like white scars, ultra marines, raven guard or alpha legion as an example. But that’s up to the painter I guess.

So all in all - sponge deliberately and sparingly. You can always add more, harder to remove if too much. Pick a suitable sponging-color, I like rhinox hide on white or yellow. Weathering ultramarines I pick the lightest highlightcolour as weathering color and sponge leadbelcher on the light blue chipping.

Ask more if I need to clarify something :)

The Breachers are off to a good start, the rich blue shields will really help them stand out from the crowd, the glow of the Cataphractii's choom is nicely done too.


Thanks man! Breachers are really fun to paint :)

Thanks a lot! Yes of course it’s the FW one :) I haven’t decided yet if I should be spice him up some or not :) we’ll see 😀

Always good to see more progress on this band of World Eaters!

 

I also just realized this. Did you build your Cataphractii with less shoulder pauldron bits?
