Shattered Legions

By Shadrak Meduson

 

 

So I started this shattered legion project around the start of March 2020, I was mainly just getting parts and kits ready before that. Now I'm about 2k into the army fully painted, and going for another 2k. So here's my work so far, not all but most.

I also have a Terrax Pattern Assault Drill in Iron Hands colours, and a Raven Guard Fire Raptor. But I have still to take some proper photos of them, same goes for my characters.

Really solid work, particularly liking those Immortals, the worn metal of the shield edges and the glowing volkites are ace.

Thank you very much! It was also the unit that got me into this project.

I’m liking the metallic green on your pyroclasts, what’s the recipe?

Also the mix of clan company’s on the IH tactical squad is very apt.

Thank you, I figured every clan have survivors so they get bunched up in new squads.

The salamander green is roughly as follows in a zenithal sort of highlight:
VMA Series: Gunmetal Grey
VMA Series: Steel
VMA Series: Chrome
Tamiya: Clear green in 3-5 thin layers.
That's about it for the green, it's very eye catching compared to the darker aspects of the army.

Have you put together a mixed Legion unit? Reforged shards style?

Not yet, but I am planning on expanding tactical/veteran squads to mixed legion units.
I want to build a whispercutter to deploy my salamander vets, but the closest rules would be a dreadclaw.

Finally managed to take some pictures of my Terrax Assault Drill in Iron Hands colours. It was quite fun to do such a weathered and damaged vehicle.

Really really nice work. Didn't see the OP the first time round and I do like the weathered and battered appearance.

Thank you very much, I thought weathering and worn looks would be a nice focus for shattered legions.

That thin looks amazing. Rough and worn down just how you would imagine a metal tube which grind through earth would look.

My thoughts exactly, tons of stones and steel it have to mash it's way through.

You've used lots of pigments for that, aight?

Yeah, mainly the a dirt colour and a few rust powders in the nooks. The rest was done with different metal colours.
