Hello again ye hallowed halls of the B&C! Seems I did a disappearing act again in my previous topic. Long story short I started to hate the models I painted up for Legio Victorum, I rushed them and I made alot of mistakes building them. I still have them, and they may yet provide fodder for my new project:

 

LEGIO ASCALON

I've been plugging away at this guy for about a week now, really forcing myself to take my time. Mucked up the melta cannon a bit, I will attempt to rectify. Should have the VMB stand in from Battlebling any day now, looking forward to that, and waiting on some basing materials.

 

I got the Precept Maniple Battle force, and I had a Warbringer and this Reaver. So that's the current build log. Working towards a Perpetua Maniple of two Reavers and two Warbringers then finishing up with the two Warhounds and the Warlord. After that...maybe a Warmaster?

 

Thanks for looking!

Maybe you could model TWC-sized "were-templars" who's inner Templar took over in the fury of battle transforming them into a giant half man - half templar?

You're making good progress on the Reaver. How will you decorate its base?

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.

Yeah, that’s exceptional work, the time you’ve taken really shows. And well done for getting back on the Titanic horse after your initial attempt!

Thank you everyone for your responses and encouragement! Thread isn't dead, just took me a couple weeks to get back to this. I've been painting HH Dark Angels, and some BB Black Orcs in between!

 

Waiting on a VMB, ruined the one I had from Battlebling, so there's that. Was able to salvage the melta cannon paint job, and got it based. The apocalypse missile launcher he is equipped with currently is not the final loadout. May I present:

That looks fantastic, beautiful work! I particularly like the weathering. Any tips? It’s one of the areas I’m least confident about, and really need to just have a go at some point!

The base is coming along nicely. Will you be doing it in Mars-red tones, or something different?

Thank you! My best advice? Check out Cult of Paint on YouTube. They're what gave me the push to try the weathering out. The weathering is deceptively simple and once you've got a little bit of practice with oils it takes very little time to get a good result. I'll try and get some pictures of the panels as I go on this Warbringer coming up.

 The base is basically done! I'm waiting on a few epic Legion tanks to add to the base, things like that, but those are the final colors. I would like to get some powders but that will have to come at a later date.

Began assembly and paint on the first of two Warbringers, I've been putting it off for about a year now and I don't know why. Thanks to Apologist's posing tutorial I was able to get a good walking pose going. It's hard to tell in the picture but the toes ARE bent to look proper in the lifted leg.

Thanks again to all that have commented!

Looks very good. I am late to the party on the Reaver, but he looks nice and the Warmaster posing looks promising. :)
