I love that guy.

Yes! Yes!
I will be watching this PLOG with great interest. I started a heresy-era EC force last year [see signature link] but stopped due to funds, university and awaiting on FW rumours to come true (which they did!) I'm going to be kick starting my force again this December with pure heresy-period material. Isn't the FW book just lovely? So much inspiration and material to work with!

I was not aware that the Command Set was now available? Damn! Good luck with this, I'll be watching it very, very closely.

Looking really good man.

Just one thing I kinda notice. You made the tracks of the Land Raider dirty, but not dirty enough. I mean...the thing has been riding through the mud, and only the centre of the tracks are dirty? I would imagine the whole bottom of the tank being rather brown.

Same goes for the Dreadnought's feet.

I'm really...erm...maybe it's better if I say it in Dutch: ik ben hier echt aan het mierenneuken hoor!

The paint jobs are great!. I find it comical that the tech marine cant actually fit through the hatch on that land raider. "Damn shoulder pads! When I find the techpriest that designed the hatch on this tin can I'm going to show him the righteous fury of the Emperor.....That is if I can ever get out of here."

After that i washed the groove's with nuln oil and started to highlight with a mix of lich purple white and addin more and more white to it till its pure white.

So small point of suggestion as the land raider was off to me. The muddy treads are great but make no sense on the model as nothing else is dirty. You may want to dirty and muddy up the lower parts of the tank all around.

Wow that's nice. I'll be keeping an eye on this.
As for the list, I like it, (1850), although you may want LC sponsons on your preds to crack some armour (depending on your meta of course)

Hey all!

Thanks guys!!!
Really appreciate all the comments!

Alpharius:
As for how i did the snow:
PVA glue mixed with white paint then put it on the base and let it dry (you can put more layers of this depending on how much volume of snow you want)
Then i used snow flock from GW on the last layer and its done
Pretty easy huh ?

sum1thtdiesalot:
I used Warplock bronze as base color.
Then i highlighted this with Runelord brass
Highlight again with Runelord bronze mixed with some mithril silver about 50/50
Then i washed it with Seraphim sepia.
When this was dry i higlighted it with pure mithril silver but only on the area's were light would hit and the gold would ''shine'' the most.

Hope this helps

And this weekend i finished the first cataprachti:

The second Cataphractii looks fantastic. Love the OSL on the Thunderhammer. My one gripe is that I'm not sure, as a Pre-Heresy model, he should have a Crux Terminatus. I was under the assumption that they were only given out after the Heresy had occurred. I could be wrong, though.

Either way, look great!

The Drop Pod is looking great. I love the stark contrast between the purple outer shell and the gray/white interior. It really makes the model pop when it's all opened up.

Post by: Scarsminimadness


Hey all,

Thanks for all the lovely compliments!

Since so many people are asking for my recipe for my purple ill try to explain.

First i start with a black undercoat. (shown as grey in the picture)
Step 1 - Then i mix lich purple with black 50/50 in my airbrush and start with the first layer. (see picture)
I airbrush this only on the places were the light would hit so i leave the recesses black. (Grey in the picture)
Step 2 - Then i put pure lich purple in my airbrush and layer this on top of the purple from step 1. (see picture)
Step 3 - Then i mixed White with the lich purple i have left in my airbrush 50/50 and spray this on top of the layer i did in step 2. (see picture)
Step 4 - After this is all done i wash the recesses and rivets with Nuln oil. (see picture)


Step 5 - When this is all done i give the whole model a varnish and start the edge highlighting with the same mix as in step 4. (50/50 mix White and Lich purple)
When i highlight these edges i keep in mind that the light source is above so i only highlight parts were light would hit.
Step 6 - Then as last step i do a final highlight with a mix of White and lich purple (95/5) again only parts were the light would hit the most with the light source coming from above.
Make sure you leave the highlight you did in step 5 visible.

I found a video on youtube that might help:
(this is not my video so credits go to ScaleModelMedic who made the video!)



Hope this little tutorial has helped you all!!

Just out of curiosity Scar, how did you do the OSL of the eyes of the helmets? Did you do it with an airbrush or with a standard brush?

Hey all,

Thanks for the comments!

Elnibbus: it is done with the airbrush.
What i do is first i spray pure white ate the eyes then the color (red in this case) then paint the eyes with orange.

So it is a long time since i did an update so here is one:
Some new toy's!

The Storm Eagle is going to be Fulgrim's personal transport so ill add allot of gold to it as described in the novel Fulgrim.

And painted a MM for my Contemptor dread:


Finished the 1st Attackbike:


And the 1st Predator for my army:

Thanks for the tip Scar, will be applying it to my Space Wolves, though I will be doing the lenses on them green. I was contemplating redoing the Wolves I have already done to incorporate the zenithal highlighting technique however I think it only works really well on large models, like vehicles and dreads. Will have a play about when I get my airbrush for Christmas! No doubt I'll harass you for more tips in the near future

Keep up the good work!

I like your painting style - very sharp and clean. Looks even better with the snowy base. Along with the subtle conversion work it makes a great impression. Well done!

I absolutely love what you've done with these guys. Great conversion work (I rather like the massive aquila on the Storm Eagle, and I'm looking forward to the shield tutorial), gorgeous paint work (that OSL, particularly)... amazing job! Looking forward to seeing more. subscribed and exalted, needless to say.

Airbrushing, then edge highlighting is an excellent idea. Think this is the first time i've seen it done. This has just blown my mind off... literally amazed at your painting style. Better get an airbrush....

Out of curiosity how long and how wide are the shields before they are cut in half? And how wide is the strip that goes around the shield?


Scar's painting log!  @ 2013/01/31 19:10:44


Post by: Scarsminimadness


Haha i see i made a mistake!

The strip is 1 mm by 2 mm The shield is about 4 cm wide before i cut it in halve and then when glued together its about 1 inch.

Also the plastic card i used is 1 mm thick and not 2 mm don't know how i came up with this... not that it matters that much i think...

Ill change this in the tutorial as well

Hey all!

Yesterday i got some new toy's!

1 Emperors Children Contemptor with Kheares assault cannon
10 Mark 4 to build a 5 man stern guard and a 4 man royal guard for Fulgrim.
1 Librarian Lloth with honor guard to make the royal guard for Fulgrim.
5 Heavy support Mark 4 with plasma cannons.



And indeed the 2nd picture is what i got to see when i opened the librarian lloth and honor guard.
So now i need to wait for replacements....
Never had such a bad cast as this one... Oh well sh*t happens

Stay tuned for updates!!

No had it before with FW and they just sent you new ones for free.
I just hope they feel so ashamed that i get a full new set that would just be really awsome!

I got a lot painted up already but you all just have to wait for pictures till the 13th of next mount!!
Then it is the armies on parade here in the Netherlands and i can show all of you the army in its full glory!

And i will try and get these new additions to the army painted up and fit on the board as well!

Cheers!

That's got to be the worst casting of resin I've ever seen. That's just awful. Tough luck, man.

Hey all,

I am thinking of making a new legion to go with my EC since the EC are already around 2500 points and i just want to add Fulgrim and leave it with that and start to paint something new... So what legion?

I was thinking or Sons of horus or Ironhands since those to are the 2 legions mostly related to the emperors children.

Anny idea's?

Then on to some WIP pictures of my new toys!

I have managed to repair the torso's that were so bad with green stuff.
Also FW is going to replace the torso's for me so i can add even more guys to this unit or save them up for later projects.
Any way here is the unit so far:



Here pictures of the sternguards:



And finaly the contemptor:


Cheers!

Nice work on all the power armor guys and the new dreadnought. My vote is for the iron hands just because I haven't seen very many of those compared to other legions.

I think the brutal World Eaters next to the graceful EC would be a good combo too. Or even the undecorated DG to the super decorated EC. I like the juxtaposition.

Hi all,
Thanks for the compliments!!

Ive started to work on my typhon siege tank and since i did not want to paint him in EC colors and i want to make a new legion of marines i thought lets make him a world eater!!
I only need 6 more marines for my EC army and it is fully finished!
Soon ill post pictures of the whole army in its full glory with the display board i made for them!
Just a little more patience
But enough chatting!

Not being able to charge when you get out of a rhino makes them rather pointless, it really is a give away for first blood.

Better options are Land Raiders or if your going FW Spartans and Storm Eagles.

I spent, literally, untill 3am this morning, thinking what Legion to create using the Betrayer book..and then i stumbled on this little Gem of a blog and was blown away. What a fountain of inspiration. So i spent untill 5am, making shopping lists online with FW, i even spent a fracking hour finding where you got the Eagle wing sticking out shoulder pad chap (Which was not a fun hour by the way so thanks for that!). Then i sleep, peacefully, knowing where my hobby path will send me for the next few months. THEN...THEN...i wake up and see your beautiful World Eaters and the future plans...now im torn again. Livid.

Oh of course, well done on the modelling, and fantastic painting, i just wanted to let you know you ruined my Easter Sunday with crushing indecision!

In all serious mate, iv never seen better painted Emperor's Children.

Oh and there you go just whipping out a couple of other finalists. You never cease to amaze!

While the paintjob on the actual minis is perfect (of course), the scrolls, especially on Eisenhorn's don't seem to fit. I think actual paper soaked in tea with coffee dabbed on the outside and then some actual ink writing would have looked better. Of course, that is just nit picking, the minis themselves are pure perfection.

Post by: Just Dave


That is an incredible contemptor. The weathering and gore in particular are great, and I think the more creamy colour works (and is possibly more realistic: dirt). Often gore detracts from a model I think, but here it really works.

Is it bad that my favourite of your Emperor's Children models is the Drop Pod? Just the contrast with the crisp white makes it stand out for me.

A pre heresy Kharn with 8 Rampagers that are going to count as Berzerkers
2 pre heresy flyers that can count as hell drakes (if anyone knows a cool conversion for this please say!! or a cool idea? it is all very much welcome!!)
3 Predators

Hi everyone!

I would like to ask you all for some help!
What kind of flyer to build for heresy that i can use as a hell drake in 40k I need to build 2 of them!
The only thing i get back to all the time is the Hell talon or Hell blade from FW.
But what i would really like is to build a nice conversion and of course make it fit the Pre heresy theme.
So please if you have any cool idea's or pictures of pre heresy flyers, share it with me so i can finally get something going!

And now on to some WIP!

Here are some more Emperors children ready to get some paint!
A unit of sternguard a Lascannon devastator squad and a techmarine:

And a shot of all the painted Children i have so far:


Then some World eaters that i am working on at the moment:


Cheers!

There is just so much quality work here it's hard to make intelligent commentary. The missile pods are truly inspiring. The infantry fantastic.

Great looking squad Scar! Loving the muzzle flashes.

Not sure what PH flyers you could use. Pretty sure most of the current ones date back to then anyway. Perhaps you could do a starfighter instead?

Starhawk Bomber


Fury Interceptor



Both look quite hard to build, though the interceptor is pretty much a Marauder Bomber for space!

The only other thing I can think of is the MKI Thunderhawk but that is waay to big to be a Helldrake



I think Dakka's Heliodore made a 40k scale one if you want to have a rummage around for it.

Hi Scar, I'm thinking of using that FW techmarine for an Ad Mech conversion - can you tell me what pieces he comes in ?

For your flyer what about converting a hell drake in to an Aquila


Scar's painting log!  @ 2013/05/21 08:23:41

Maybe something akin to a snowspeeder with a magna-harpoon that tears chunks out of targets as it passes over rather than claws?

Post by: Scarsminimadness


Thanks guys for thinking with me on this!!
But i think ill be going for one of the following flyers.
They are both about the same size as a hell drake.


or the


Witch one would you guys go for?

Hi Scar, I wanted to chime in with some praise having read through your thread. I never thought a purple space marine army could look so great! I'm reading through the horus heresy novels at the moment (currently on Fulgrim), and I always imagined that the emperor's children would look like a bunch of pansies, but these look awesome. Well you be picking up a FW Fulgrim? Also, the Firebird looks much more low key than I'd expect from the primarch's personal transport, although I like the conversion work you've done on it I think it could be more ornate and ostentatious, considering Fulgrim's tastes


Scar's painting log!  @ 2013/05/22 17:07:19


Post by: Boringstuff


The first one is sleek and more aesthetically pleasing, which would probably be more fitting for Emperors Children. But if you want to have a flyer for World Eaters then I think the more boxy and brutish appearance of the second one would make sense.


Scar's painting log!  @ 2013/05/28 10:04:10


Post by: Scarsminimadness


Hey all!

Thanks guys!

Ok I've done it :( I ordered a Warhound but now i need a color scheme for it... And i was thinking about the World eater Warhound color but it is red and i don't know if i want that tbh.
Imho there are too many of these beasts painted red... So anyone has a cool idea for a color that can work with my Emperors children and with my World Eaters ?
Thanks in advance!


Scar's painting log!  @ 2013/05/28 11:56:40


Post by: kitch102


A mostly white warhound to fit the WE theme, with purple and gold secondary colours? Then blues for the lights / generators etc?


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Also, for your flier - have you seen the new Star Trek film? I imagine that a small 1 man flier would do nicely.

You could take the Arvus Lighter,



and add a tail from either the Avenger



Or the Storm Talon



And then just a load of guns on the base of the hull to see you right. Flame throwers, fuel cannons, etc etc.

Not cheap, but potentially pretty cool and very different.

So this morning the doorbell ring and i got my package from FW!
My first ever titan! Whoohoo
And right in time for the Apocalypse battle tomorrow

After a full day of work i manage to get it together... What a kit! haha
Here are some pictures of how he stands right now and below a picture of how much resin junk it had on its parts.


Im going to try and paint all the interiour tonight.
Stay tuned for updates!

Thanks guys!

Stay tuned for updates today since its paint the titan day!!

Oh and here are some pictures of 2 Apocalypse games!
The first one i organized at our local gaming club it was a 1500pt for each person with a max of 1 super heavy.
Was a fun battle and it didn't take that long so we could finish it in 1 evening.
Unfortunately the titan got killed after 1 round haha deep strike melta spam :(
Anyway here are the pictures!






Then the day after i played a proper apoc game against one of the club members and it was fun!
5000 points chaos demons with trator guards against my 5000 points loyal marines with World eater chaos marines.
At turn 4 the battle was decided my opponent did not bring enough lascannons and his 3 demon princes and exalted blood thirster did not manage to get close enough to my titan.
Here some pictures:

Off topic here but the man on the left of the first picture looks like a young Tim Roth in my eyes, now on topic your army is gorgeous especially your new Warhound the subtle battle damage along with the interior is very striking and crisp well done on achieving this and I know that the final picture will be as breath taking as the rest of your army!

I bet the daemon princes and the exalted bloodthirster found out just how much firepower a titan can throw out.

I find it very hard to describe how much I love your EC. They have a strong appeal and if I had the time & money, I would absolutely start an army of them. Until then, just looking at your stunning pieces of art is more than enough for me. Exalted.

Post by: Scarsminimadness


I agree

Now i only have 1 problem!
I need to make it work in 40k.... I have played several lists so far but its kinda hard to get something that fits the army...
CSM are really not my thing why?
- Hard to find a proper model for the hell drake.
- 2 contemptors playing as hell brutes sucks.
- Raptors are bad without proper support
- Close combat terminators are not that great.

Making a working close combat army in this edition of 40k without using Fiends and Spawns is almost impossible...
Or am i wrong now?
Does anyone have a suggestion? Please let me know!

Then the other army that does fit the World Eater profile a bit fluff wise is Blood Angels.
Why blood angels?
- Contemptors are playable as furioso dread with blood talons in drop pods
- Rampager are playable as Death company
- Apothecary's can be played as priests
- Propper close combat terminators
- Storm eagle is playable as Storm raven

So for now i'm leaning more to the blood angels but i was wondering if anyone of you have some cool idea's or suggestions?

Cheers

One of the cool things BA have are fast rhino chassis tanks. You can move your vindicators 12", and blast away with the big gun. The cheap libby is the best HQ choice for them, imo.


Scar's painting log!  @ 2013/07/04 18:43:37


Post by: Boringstuff


Nah, close combat CSM armies seem quite hard to play right; your choice to go for Blood Angels seems sensible as they also give lots flexibility.

Blood Angels fit perfectly!

I've been using that codex with my own Pre-Heresy World Eaters. Check the rules for Gabriel Seth, he's practically a World Eater in disguise!

Last tuesday i got this HUGE box from Forgeworld and started to work on the models in my spare time.
Here are some WIP pics of the models so far!



And some WIP on fulgrim!

I like the eyes especially: looks like he used makeup - perfectly suits such a character. Nice touch!

Though I still can't stand the way his mouth been sculpted by FW... It gives me creeps. And somehow makes it clear, why he became a Slaanesh Daemon Prince

Way too big even for a superhuman entity, imo. Looks a bit disproportionate... Like he's trying to swallow you... It's creepy.
Anyway, a matter of perception, you know.

Those World Eaters are really nice Scar, there's something about the blue that makes them stand out a lot more than any other pre heresy WE's I've seen, they look fantastic.

Really nice blog, your emperor's children are really top, I am a little less a fan of world eaters but i think that it is a personal taste.
Your titan is really awesome as fulgrim!

How can you be so fast & your models so awesomely painted in such a short span of time ?!?

I'm so envious !!

Thanks m8!
Well its my job
I paint +/- 12 hours a day from my own models to models from clients so that might be the reason
And i'm quite fast with painting the models i agree thats why it is possible for me to live from it now and i hope it stays like that!

Amazing stuff!

I love the Fulgrim, I'm not a huge fan of the actual mini but you've done him great. Esp the base on him, I've seen loads where there is so much happening on the base it really takes away from the primarch, yours is not too over the top and really incharacter.

Nice work!
