I've been lurking on here for the longest time and thought it was about time to try and make a WIP thread of my White Scars successors, the Celestial Guardians. Hopefully it helps with keeping motivated and painting more minis. Here is what I've built so far.

Lieutenant Byamba Baro - Red Hawk - 

If you cant tell already, I'm a big fan of polearms so when i saw the new AOS kits i knew i had to get a hold of some to use for some space marine conversions. Here is a look at the lieutenant before he was painted.

Seki Yoshihiro - The Sun Eater - Judiciar assigned to the 3rd Company. 

 

I wanted to do something that would differentiate these chaplains from other space marine chapters and decided to draw inspiration from japanese Oni. So instead of the classic skull masks, they will use red horned helms. Since there are red and blue Oni in japanese folklore, my plan is for my version of the librarians to have blue horned helms.

I also wanted a chance to make a unit that would visually fit well with the chaplains but also look a little different from the rest of the company. so here are some Assault Intercessors that will accompany Yoshihiro into battle.

Incursor Sergeant. I spent alot of time painting the skulls and hair of the trophies and was super nervous about how it would look once I added the blood. Super happy with the result.

and the rest of the latest squad. 

 

The next project will be the third member of the Blade Guard. I plan to have 6 in all, but want to have the first three done to complete the unit so that they soon can be used for a new crusade campaign.

These are wonderful. The cultural influences are very clear, and since it's so well done they still also read as Space Marines. Purple and green are a great punchy combination that's both unusual and have quite sinister undertones – but the warmth of the colours you've chosen used stops them looking like villains.

 

I particularly like Hisago Jiro; the patterning on the cloth is great, and the pose is very striking. Seki Yoshihiro is another stand-out, and I love the idea of the Librarians of the Chapter mirroring the Chaplains' appearance, but in blue. Very fitting. Quite besides those stand-out characters, however, It's worth reiterating that they're all absolutely fantastic. Brilliant stuff!

Great conversions, very characterful. And really nice colour scheme to match it! Loving the free-handed patterns on the Lieutenant's robes especially.

Ooooh, I recall some of your miniatures making the rounds on fb groups, absolutely loved them, the composition and the painting are great! I really like the Red Hawk, that stormcast sculpt is great and you've adapted it perfectly to a primaris! Looking forward to seeing more!

Thank you! In one of my original tests, i tried the scheme with a colder purple that was close to pre-heresy Emperor's Children. That combined with the green came off as a little cartoony, so i switched it to a more magenta color. The green is suppose to be the company color, so im interested in seeing how other colors would work with the magenta and steel look. Teal, might be the next one to try if I ever get around to making a model from one of the other companies. 

 

I think the horned Librarians should work well. I just have to figure out where to buy or try and build a shakujo (monks staff) before i start building one.

Thank you! The free-hand was a challenge.

I'm very happy with how Red Hawk turned out. It's always a great feeling when you're able to execute the idea you get in your head. I normally am not a the biggest fan of using Stormcast as space marines but i like the direction they have gone with the new releases and i think that keeping space marine legs, instead of stomecast ones, really helps sell the look.

These are superb my friend! It really shows that you’re putting in the time to make them shine. Even you rank and file ooze character with your pose selection and color scheme. Bold choices have yielded you some great minis. I will be watching to see this project grow!

These are great! Really seamless conversations and fantastic painting. A striking scheme and a well thought out aesthetic.

Work has been a bit of a drag so i havn't had the opportunity to get into a painting groove, so I've decided to convert instead. I love the look of heavy intercessors and plan to have 1-2 10 man units for this project. Now i just have to figure out how to make them stand out from usual heavy intercessors and match the overall aesthetic i've built so far. Here is the first mock up. 

 

51535236015_e113778040.jpg

51535028484_ddd7531e98.jpg

 

I think I'll add an additional "armor panel" to the shoulder pads and greaves, and i still have to add the usual accessories, pistol holster, etc. I dont think I'll go for this exact look for every marine in the unit, since I do like the idea of warriors customizing their own armor over time. So some might have these armor panels, others more robes. 

 

Here is a mock up I did for an eradicator (still have to finish the other 2) and I might make similar huge shoulder pads for some of the marines in the Heavy intercessor unit.
