So I am back from Germany and (mostly) over the jetlag, so what better way to celebrate than to start to paint models. I wanted to work out the test scheme for the custodes with my own twist. I will be painting the face plates white like in master of mankind and have the shoulder pads done in metallic red in certain places. So far I am really liking the models, but I still have to finish the base along with the spear and the eye lenses. So tell me what you all think!

Im liking the white face plates, looking at the plume on yours reminds me I should probably put another wash on mine to make the threads stand out more.

I thought I would hate the plumes but they are growing on me.


Well another WIP post, this time it is for a 5 man squad of custodes (mainly being painted for my local GW competition), I wanted to do a minimum squad size but with the new edition the custodes squads are now 5 man squads instead of 3. So this squad/WIP will consist of 3 guardians, 1 sentinel and 1 hetaeron (who will be getting a cape so he can pass off as a shield captain for 40k).

I hope to have these guys done before the weekend is out.

Actually I finished painting the cape about 15 minutes ago (I had to wait for a color to come from amazon before I could start it). I should be gluing it on tomorrow and taking better pictures then.



Also this was my first time using this sorta wet blending technique that I learned from Jan and his stream (thanks again buddy) but I don't think I got it as good as he did but I tried

They look really cool, I love the red on the shoulder pads and lots of the other great little touches.

Thanks! The red is actually the FW clear red paint to give it a metallic red look. I have used it on other models and I really like it

Thanks man! I have to say I got the idea from master of mankind so the idea is not original

Well as promised I finally got around to taking proper pictures of my custodes and for those that have followed this thread for a while I think I finally got the lightbox picture set up down right with this set of pictures. Not shown in this collage is the sentinel as he didn't really fit in with the layout. But up next I plan on trying to finish my blackshields or maybe I should just finish my custodes I don't know right now . Tell me what you all think I should work on next!

Nicely done! great bold gold you've got, I also like the back of the cloak the lightest little highlight on the top parts and prominent fold, it adds enough for your eye to follow the softer blending while using almost an edge highlight, all in all the force looks great ! :-)

Thanks man! I am really happy with the cape, but I was lucky to learn the paint recipe from a much more talented painter than myself

Well done on the gold. It is very easy to much up the shading on gold, but you seem to have got the shadow and light on it perfectly. Well done.

Thanks man! I am really happy with them and I am even considering putting the blackshields to the side to finish the army before summer break is over

Well today was a slow day and I only really washed the custodes pallas and the blackshields javelin landspeeder, along with building another hetaeron custodes using the left over event only custodes weapon. I also started to paint the marine for the spear dreads base and once again am doing a sons of horus marine. I was able to cut the shooting arm on the dread and re position it facing more downwards so it looks like the dread has killed the marine in his last ditch effort to slow down or destroy the dread.

Slow day today, mainly consisted of building. But I was able to at least build the javelin speeder for my blackshields, along with building and priming the custodes pallas for my 30k army. I also was able to stop off at my local GW and get the new 8th ed rulebook along with index imperium 1 and 2 and I have decided that my army for 8th ed will be a custodes and primaris marine mix so that I can actually field an army fairly quickly . I was also able to get one of the new demo models and I primed and sprayed him with leadbelcher to prep him to become a test model for my ultramarine scheme for the future primaris army.

Also I found one of my old BaC dreadnoughts that I had just basecoated black, I am thinking of just getting it off of its base and re purposing it for my 40k custodes since they only can take venerable contemptor dreads and none of the other cool toys they had from 30k.

The speeder has really got a dynamic look to it, I'm excited to see it painted.
