Hey gang! Take a look at my WIP Chapter Master, modeled using the Forge World Boarding Marine. I need some advice though. Do those purity seals blend in too closely with the gold?

I'm a big fan of this fella, his armored tabard is perfect for showing off the quartered colour scheme. (And the Purity Seals don't blend too much!)

Thanks for the feedback, gang! Heathens, I'll try and keep up the progress, but with exams coming up, it might be a few more weeks before I finish off this dang Stormraven.

 

The_Chaplain, I'll start work on the web exclusive soon. He is part of my LPC vow. I'm just trying to choose what company he commands so I can decide on the trim. Any thoughts? I'm leaning towards 10th company right now. 

 

Rev. Tiberius Jackhammer, love the name. I'm glad you like the Chapter Master! He took me a long time but really does look better for the quartered scheme, I think. Though finding reference for the boarding marine proved surprisingly difficult. 

 

Anyway, finished the cockpit and pilot for the Stormraven, in a foolish attempt at painting every nook and cranny of the Stormraven. We'll see if this breaks me on painting vehicle interiors.

Hey gang! The Stormraven continues apace, but nothing worth photographing yet. On the other hand, I checked out a nice camera from my college and took some higher-quality shots of the existing models. My phone camera just didn't suffice anymore. Anyway, here you guys go!

I've been watching this topic, but inexplicably not posted! blink.png I love quartered schemes, but far too chicken to try one myself sad.png the Red and cream looks gorgeous. I think my favourite is the Libby out of them all, but they're all so well painted smile.png I'm looking forward to seeing the finished Storm Raven. I found highlighting the two vehicles I have to be very exhausting, so I feel for you! blink.png

It'll look great when it is done though! thumbsup.gif

In the darkness between the stars, the weak and the faithless find no deliverance. We are raised to believe that the God-Emperor watches over us all. And so we are charged to cleanse the mutant, the heretic and the alien. We must not falter. We are His sword. We are His wrath. Even in the face of death, we shall not submit. Suffering is our prayer. Faith is our armour. In Battle He offers us redemption. And for those who proves their worth, the Emperor sends sends forth His Angels!

Man, the more I see of that chapter badge the more I'm jealous I didn't think of it first for my Red Lords. laugh.png

 

Also the new camera makes these models even more glorious - excellent stuff! turned.gif

Hail brothers! Brief (oh so brief) update for today in between my linguistic exam and my upcoming stats exam. The Stormraven's base is done! Unfortunately, all but one of the pictures came out like total garbage (even with the better camera). If you guys want more shots, I'll post some. But for now, here is the base!

Great work all around here. Caius is very good. I'm especially keen to see the limited edition Captain and the Stormraven finished up. I'm about to tackle my own Stormraven myself, but I used the Chapterhouse truescale kit and now the damn thing needs about a week's worth of gap-filling and modification to make it acceptable. Would love to see some army shots as and when.

Figures look great. If you're worried about the chapter masters scrolls being a little too dark, there's probably two ways to go. 1.) Use a little bleached bone on the scrolls on the most raised parts or 2.) use the next gold up on the shield to make it brighter. Either way he looks really great. The Librarian might be my fave though!

Sorry for the lack of updates over the summer, but my living situation made that activity impossible. However! I have discovered and awesome game store near where I will live for the next year and I have begun painting there. So here two small updates.

Local hobby shop is running a kill team campaign, which coincides with me moving into my new place and setting up my paints for the first time in months. This is only half of the force, still WIP obviously. I also have five scouts coming along nicely. Photos of them will go up... eventually. It's weird seeing ordinary line troops for the Crimson Lords, since I have only done HQ and vehicles thus far.

And what lovely tacticals they are. I love the very light sprinkling of Sternguard bits throughout. Makes each marine more unique and seamlessly blends with the rest of the kit.  I also love the use of the old AoBR missile launcher guy.  Stands out nicely as uniquely equipped but again blends seamlessly with the squad.

Hail brothers! Time for some real progress. These are almost entirely done, save for  their chapter insignia and tactical markings, which I cannot decide if I should paint in bone or black. I'm leaning towards bone, though.
