That is some incredible paintwork! The paintjobs on Indomitus Chaplain and Bladeguard Lieutenant are works of art. Also getting a bit of a Red Scorpions vibe from your colour scheme.

 

Fantastic job all around!

Not gonna lie, Red Scorpions were a big inspiration for the scheme, but I've done a Red Scorpions army before and painting the yellow pad rims and helmet stripes takes aaaaaaaages! So I figured why not just paint those parts all one colour and save a lot of time.

Got the second batch of assault intercessors finished and photographed yesterday, it was only once I'd varnished them that i realized they should have Assault markings instead of tactical 😂

Bladeguard next!

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Been working nights so not much painting time, but I've been plugging away on the Bladeguard. I started batch painting them initially but quickly decided against it, so I'm starting with the Ancient;

Finally finished the Bladeguard Ancient, working nights the last couple of weeks has really slowed me down 😩 that said, I'm glad I didn't compromise on quality as I'm super happy with how he turned out. Gonna paint the 3 Bladeguard themselves next, though I'll probably finish them off individually.

Mind if I ask what grey and yellow you used?

Of course! The grey is as follows;
Black undercoat, Vallejo track primer, track primer and Vallejo German WW2 cam beige 50:50 zenithal highlight with the aorbrush. Then edge highlight with a mix of track primer and cam beige until the final highlight is just cam beige on the very sharpest edges. At the very end I gloss varnish and use gloss nuln oil to get all the recesses and panel lines.

Yellow is averland sunset as a basecoat, Vallejo moon yellow airbrushed onto the top 50%, seraphim sepia airbrushed onto the bottom 20-30%. Gloss varnish again and a panel line with agrax earthshade gloss and an edge highlight with averland sunset and white in a 50:50 mix.

Whole model gets a coat of Vallejo satin varnish at the end to dull down the shine from the gloss.

Beautiful work on the Ancient. Whose skeleton is displayed on his standard?

Haven't really thought about it...

But he's now honoured brother Ateles, his body was found in the ruins of vigilus surrounded by 22 dead Black Legion heretics. Posthumously decorated by Roboute Guilliman himself his bones were interred in the chapter mausoleum on Ostrides IV. With the mobilisation of the first, second and sixth fellowships to the Pariah Nexus, Honoured Brother Ateles' remains are borne into battle by Honoured Ancient Pavo of the first fellowship Bladeguard.

This is a well-written backstory. Brother Ateles' spirit bear witness as his descendants wreak vengeance upon his murderers' descendants, and be happy.

A few days pass and I've painted a bit more, late stage WIP on these dudes, all they need now is a bit more micro sol on the decals, a coat of satin varnish and the bases doing. Another hour of work and they'll be finished!

Finished the Bladeguard yesterday, didn't have black elite shoulder marking transfers so they're white with black skulls. As a result the colour of the right shoulder pad marking now denotes the company the marine is from, most of my army will be 5th company with black markings.

Polished off the eradicators this morning, first go at painting non-caucasian skin, which is really shameful when I realise I've been painting minis on and off since 1993.

Q:  Is there room for hope in the grim dark future of Warhammer 40,000?
A:  I do hope not because then it won't be the 40k universe anymore.
