Hello all,

 

Starting a thread for my WB for both 30k and 40k.

 

Been working mainly on 30k recently. Today I finished a heavy support squad and a tactical support squad that were sitting around about halfway done.

My first thought was where is the spiky skulls? Then realised it was 30k..

 

...so the bastards were a little less evil? :P

 

Great work though!

Thanks!

 

They're just a little less evil... but not much. All of the traitor legions in 30k aren't quite chaos yet, although the WB have units like this:

Since WB are the most Chaos of the traitor legions at the time, you can get away with mixing in some CSM-style bits in.

They aren't less evil, they've just had less time collecting. :)

 

They look great, BTW - the contrast of the red with the black and then the white and yellow of their unit markings are very effective together.

I really do like the scheme. But it is actually just the standard Word Bearers paint scheme for HH. FW made a really striking scheme for them, even when doing a more muted look, it really tends to stand out. Because of their traditional painting style, they tend to break up models with colour like this quite often, since they wouldn't do edge-highlighting.

 

I love the dark, burgundy-wine colour that it has over the brighter reds that are more typical in 40k.

You've got a really nice tone of red there, nice work on these chaps. What's next on the painting table?

Next should be a Dark Apostle, although necrons are up to get that vow completed for their competition as well as some Dreadwing destroyers for the 1st legion.

Might build some ashen circle as well, think I'll do those after the Dark Apostle.
