The new traitor supplement motivated me to continue with my Chosen, still much to be done with them so very WIP but better than plastic grey.

Before the Heresy it was named Mastiff XV and were one of many predator battle tanks in service of the Legion.
It was all but destroyed in the siege of Terra, its broken shell was saved in the last moments before our weaklings to cousins
started the retreat.
But those days are long past.
Our Lord the Ceberus brought it back to life once we settled in the Blackmaw, and since then it has become more of a beast than a machine, we and our brothers calls it the Fleshgrinder.

Certainly an interesting start, though I do say when it comes to writing you might want to review your work before submitting it.. It's pretty rife with spelling and grammatical errors. It doesn't need to be perfect (Gods know mine never is...) but it's important to cut out any obvious marks, less it bog down your work.
The models, however are off to a nice start! Can't wait to see more.

Teutonicavenger: There chest pieces are mostly mkII and mkIII (including iron warriors and rampager's)with parts from Bloodwarriors,
they do have a lot of bionics but noticed the picture don't show much of it.
Varga's main body is old Fabius bile.
I know i can't take pictures if my life depended on it, but if there is anything you want a closer pic of let me know.

I do think you got carried away with the texture paint on the Sicaran's/Predator's tracks. Easy to overdo it. Take it easy next time.
Your pictures are fine on my phone, but I see what people mean. Heaps of good tutorials out there to get you started taking better pictures. (Not that I know much about it, I don't.) I'm sure people will be happy to help you out if you get stuck.
Looking forward to seeing more.

These are really very cool, I like that you have gone with the white armour and blue shoulder and the amount of weathering actually makes them look like they haven't stopped fighting in 10,000 years. Subbed!

Brother kortmer: You mean unholy mother of khorne i presume? Dark and disturbing with full of hatred is the road i have tried to achieve,
so i'm very glad GW new view on Worldeaters have started to become close to my own view.
( Mental note: less mud and murk on tracks) thehe yeah, i agree went a little overboard with it, the sicaran is still on WIP
so i think i will scrape some of it off.
Nemac Vradon: As they didn't end up in the eye, i felt it was suitable to have them closer to Heresy colours. Besides, who doesn't like white and blue with some blood and gore all over it of course.

These are incredible...would you mind sharing your painting recipe for that gritted up white and blue scheme?
Posted 27 January 2017 - 07:48 AM
Optimvschristvs: Of course I can share it, as work and i guess age as well have made my hands a bit of shaky most of the time to do
fine details I cheat a lot with washes, so here goes.
I always prime with black, and for the white armour: Administratum grey, then white scar that I water down a little,
chips and scratches with runefang steel once it's dry, Agrax earthshade and once that is really dry I take Nuln oil.
Tidy up a little with runefang steel where it's needed. Easy, simple just takes time waiting on shades to dry, but don't
tell anyone *sshh* it be out secret hehe
The blue is an older colour called Enchanted blue, not sure what it's called nowadays, that I chip with runefang steel,
and yet again Agrax earthshade and then Nuln oil and tidy up with runefangsteel.

Thanks for all the nice comments
Tentonicavenger: To do the ghostly eyes is even easier just some waters down white scar on the area and edges and then
nihilakh oxide, once its dry highlight with the white scar.
Finally finished a unit of chosen, I have lost the count on how many months they have been waiting to get painted.
