As promised here are some better pictures of the LT and Hellblasters, and I worked on the brightness to kill that grey overtone that seems to happen a lot in my pictures and it seems to have worked. All that is left is the regular primaris captain, 5 scouts, two venerable land raiders (custodes) and this army is done!

Well I ran into some luck, a friend up here at college let me borrow his airbrush so I was able to try and fix the clear red overspray on my land raiders (still looks a bit off but it blends together better) and get the clear blue down on my ultramarines captain. Also my bases for my terminators showed up and I was able to build and prime my 5 man scout squad.

I finished one of my papers early yesterday so I decided to reward myself and get some work in on the custodes terminators. I got the rest of the base colors down and washed them so in reality they are about halfway done. I also did some work on a DKoK tank commissar I am re painting for a friend (I sold it to him a while back, but I want to repaint it cause I feel like I can do a better job now).

Thanks jan! Always nice to see you back on Dakka


I was super tired yesterday, so I did not get much work in on the terminators. Besides finishing the face on the bare headed guy and starting the red layers on the plumes. But I did get the tank commissar pretty much finished!

Well I finally got off my butt and took pictures of greyfax. Tried my hand at messing around with the light levels so I wouldn't get that grey filter effect that I normally do so hopefully it looks better!

Very ominous. She's a great model, and I'd say you've done her justice! If there was one thing I had to comment on, it would be the hat. For a dark model, the hat seems to stand out a lot, almost like it is too bright compared to the rest of the model.

Well done Ustrello!

Thanks! Honestly I was painting the hat red as an homage to the Monty Python inquisitors because it is one of my favorite scenes and it'll make me laugh every time she kills a model

Chugging along, getting more work in on the terminators and getting the primaris captain close to being done. I have a bit of a time crunch coming up so I won't be working on the land raiders to get them ready for AoP so hopefully the terminators will fill in cool factor wise.

Well I got my ruined temple for my AoP board and she is a beauty. Sadly I don't have the time to carve the floor to match the bases of the custodes, so a similar color scheme will have to do. A river will be flowing down the middle and I got the glue wall down in place right now drying and I will be going in with the blues to create a sense of depth later, probably tomorrow and after that getting the frozen water down. I also plan on putting some snow drifts in various places and corners of the temple and making up some stained glass to go in the broken windows and around the inside and outside of the temple. I got 5 days left to get it ready, all the while writing a 25 page paper that is due next wednesday

Got some more work in on my temple, mainly getting the water way and water effects down along with icicles on some of the parts of the temple. I just need to put some snowbanks in the corners of the temple and some other various areas and start on the stained glass and primary waterfall.

For S&Gs I decided to set up the custodes in the temple to just see what they would look like and it does look nice so far.

Cool stuff!

If your board has space, though, I'd suggest putting a Custodian or two outside the temple, just so that if someone wants a good look at an individual painjob they can get one without having to look over/round the temple walls. If not, then I'd say make sure you have one clearly visible along the front edge for the same reason.

Class looking board. Can't wait for this waterfall, I think it's gonna do a great job of bringing it all together. Keep it coming!

Thanks man! I ended up taking your advice on that one

Sadly the water fall was not dry in time so it was scrapped =(

Thank you! I am glad everyone is a fan of them, I was worried the first time I did them


Well another year and another AoP on the books. Sadly I did not win any categories, but I almost won best painted (lost by one) and monsters/machines (lost by 2). I got some pictures of my board and I will post them later for sure if anyone is interested.

Also I am about done with the primaris captain model, and honestly I don't know how to feel about the model. Most of the design is pretty great, but the aquila on the chest and the eagle on the shoulder pad are just bad, not enough differentiation between the individual wing parts lead to it looking like one solid piece instead of the normal layered look. Also I got around to starting the blue metallic on the scouts armor and it is looking good so far!

Well done on the board. I'm looking forward to seeing what the scouts look like completed with the partial armour covering and your metallic style.

For the captain, maybe some more white to break up the shoulder pad and chest piece? A bright contrast might make him pop

Thanks! And I took your advice, albeit in a different color direction. I stuck with the red, but I went with the khorne to wazdakka to squig progression and it looks a lot better that way rather than just plain gold.

Thanks jan! I am really liking your Dr. Doom and Chaplain model!


Another successful day of painting in the books. I finished the primaris captain, and even just about finished the scouts. All that is left on them is to do the base and get the ultramarine chapter symbol onto their shoulder pad. Sadly the transfer sheets that are with the scout boxes don't really fit their shoulder pads so I ordered a BaC transfer sheet because I remember they had some small ones.

After these guys are done, I have one more 5 man scout squad to go and then honestly I don't have any more ultramarine stuff. I know as a forgeworld christmas gift to myself I will be getting a relic contemptor dread with twin heavy bolter and chain fist but that won't be for about a month or so.

Finally got the scouts all based up, but I am still waiting on the transfers to truly finish them. Since I am starting to run out of 40k models to paint (I got quite a lot of 30k but it is dead in the water for me until they switch it to 8th) I got some work in on the crimson fist frag cannon veteran. I still got the rest of his squad all worked up in my mind, I am just waiting on the funds to buy the models. Also I just wanted to show the size difference between the primaris captain and a scout and there is a huge difference.

Well I got around to finally buying and making my kill team plus watch captain.

So far I have

Silver skulls watch sgt with combi plasma and xenophase blade

Crimson fist with frag cannon

Flesh tearer with shotgun

Mysterious blackshield with twin lightning claws (waiting on one more from ebay)

Sons of Medusa with frag cannon

The watch captain will have a power sword and a master crafted bolter and of course is an ultramarine , I think I will give him the metallic blue though for the shoulder pad to keep it consistent






Also can we talk about how the deathwatch overkill marines are the normal space marine size and not scaled up to match the deathwatch?

Great looking deathwatch squad, can't wait to see them painted.

And that's quite a difference in size. I don't know the lore for deathwatch but are they supposed to be bigger or is this just general GW size creep at work? They look close to primaris in size

Thanks man, hopefully they will be done before the school semester starts. The size difference is size creep, they are still a bit smaller than primaris though. I could honestly see them re sizing the regular marines to this size so the primaris regular marine comparison isn't so stark.


Well it has been a while hasn't it? My semester went well, I finished my senior thesis and am now in the process of applying to grad schools for my Master's. But I was finally able to sit down and take some pictures of my custodes terminators and ultramarine scouts. With winter break upon us I will try and get some more painting done, though I haven't been feeling it for the past few days since the semester ended. I did promise to paint a buddie's DKoK grenadier squad so hopefully that will kick start the painting bug.

So with my ultramarines pretty much done at the present moment, and waiting for the custodes codex to come out I have been struggling to try and paint anything at the moment. So I thought I would pick up a small commission for a friend and paint some of his grenadiers for him. He wants them in that classic blue-grey scheme and I will be following the warhammer tv guide for that. Though I will be adding some of my own twists to it, with dark silver metal bits and black-grey pants etc.

They can be cool little derpy models sometimes . As for the terminators they have them in 30k rules and they are mentioned in 40k books so I am hoping they get access to them sometime

So it has been a while hasn't it? School has kept me pretty busy and I have been applying to graduate school and thankfully I have gotten into at least one school at this point .

With GW finally releasing a custodes codex and new models I have made a list (23 models) and want to get it painted and finished before summer. As of right now I need to build and paint Trajann, 3 bikers, 1 shield captain biker, 3 terminators, 1 shield captain terminator, 2 vexilla bearers, and 4 guardian spear dudes. I built Trajann, the 4 guardian spears, and 3 terminators already and am just waiting on more funds to purchase the last bits.

As for the schemes, all the custodes will still be gold with white faceplates but, I will be doing a few shadowkeepers here and there to break up the gold, and for the terminators I will be doing the gilded fist shield host which is the purple accents for the terminators.

I gave Trajann a head swap to make him look a bit better
