Nice! I do like these new Custodes models, the Terminators are epic.

They really are cool, even the wardens. I will be picking up a box of them, mainly to make my vexillas though for their left handed weapons

Looking good my friend! Keen to see you slap some paint on in there. Custodes are real fun and i'm keen to get further into mine as well.

Also, for what its worth I actually happen to think the wardens are the nicest miniatures. Not that they look bad in any respect, but there's an awkward range of movement in the default custodes box, the termies strike me as being a bit static when they shouldn't be, kind of like the primaris aggressor kit. The wardens are static but dont pretend as if they're not. Their stance lives up to their defensive tabletop role and also i'm a sucker for the asymmetry of their tabards

Regardless, the whole range is sick, and the bikers are fantastic models too. I'm eager to see what you produce over the coming days and its good to see you back.

Thanks man! I am hoping to get some primer down this week as we will be having two 40 degree days. But we still have a foot and a half of snow on the ground so it may be tough to do so

I haven't played with the new custodes yet so I don't know how powerful they are but I have been hearing a lot of good things about them especially the bikes

They have finally grown on me and I am really starting to like them!


Well my last undergradaute semester has been kinda busy so there has been a distinct lack of painting going on. But, I have my custodes list all finished and I am in process of buying the models. We had a warm day finally so I was able to get some priming in. Plus, I did a bit more building.

First up are the terminators who will be in the Aquilan shield scheme. I have a metallic purple all ready to go that is a lot like my metallic red in consistency. They will have purple robes and plumes as well, I am going for a dark burgandy red to start with and then working my way up the GW purple paint progression.



My last 4 man guardian squad will be all shadowkeepers as I really like the black and gold scheme and it will help to explain why the shield captains in my list are shadowkeepers themselves.



Last up is the shield captain that I built recently. I will be giving him the eagle eye relic every once and a while, so to denote that I found the eagle bit from the deathwatch overkill box and put it to good use. I know in the text it states it is a better helmet, but I just like the idea of a cyber eagle flying around helping out the shield captain. He will also be painted up in the shadowkeeper scheme, but I am thinking of painting him with brownish skin as a tribute to Kitten from the TTS series on youtube.

Well I got some more painting in on the terminators. I got the base colors and washes down and even a few of the layers, up next will be highlighting the crap out of them and finishing the axes. I even got to try out the Badger metallic purple paint and well...it looks a bit blue so maybe I did something wrong? Either way I am liking how they are turning out

I only had about 40 minutes to work on the terminators last night, but I was able to clean up the shoulder pads, finish the cloaks for the most part, work on the bare heads, and just about finish the helmet dude (giving him a white stripe to match the white face plates of the rest of the guardians). Hopefully I will have these guys done before friday so I can work on the shield captain.

Well spring break was not full of painting as I had hoped it would be. Rather it was spent helping my parents clean the house and visiting a university for graduate school (of which I have accepted that universities offer and am now going there). But, I was able to build the two vexillas for my custodes army, they will be the -1 to hit one and the +1 attack one which is why I chose the two different banners so I can tell the difference. They will also be in the emissary scheme so they will have white robes to set them apart from everyone else. After this I just have to build the squad of 3 bikers and the shield captain, so the army is almost all built. Also the base company I use Dragon Forge is expanding the base range for the bases I use and they will include bases for the custodes bikers, so I won't have to worry about mismatching bases now.

Damn Brother! Looking great.

Would you mind sharing your reciepe / process for painting your golds and silvers? Because they look fantastic. Also, what company makes those metallics? They are freaking awesome and would love to get my hands on some.

Good luck with your last semester! I'm in the middle of law school so my painting time has dwindled greatly too :(

For sure!

The gold is: spray retributor armor, all over wash of reikland, layer auric armor gold, do all of the edge highlights with liberator and do extreme highlights with stormhost silver

Silver: is leadbelcher base, nuln oil, then layer iron breaker, then extreme highlight storm host. If I am going for quick I skip the last two steps and dry brush necron compound.

For the metallic red and purple that is Angron red clear from forgeworld and the purple is purple ghost tint from badger

The rest of the metallic paints gold and silver are just the gw paints (I tend to be brand loyola which can be a bad thing )

Good luck to you for law school! One of my friends is getting her jd and taking the bar this june

Hoo boy its been a while hasn't it? Well with it being my last semester and visiting graduate schools my time has been pretty taken up, but I finally have had a moment to paint so I decided to put the other terminators off to the side for a minute and get to work on the terminator shield captain. I decided to best way to distinguish special units from my own "regular" ones is to make them a different shield host, and for that the shadowkeepers will be lending an unusual amount of support in the way of shield captains.

I decided to give this shield captain an eagle bit from the overkill box to represent the eagle eye relic he will be getting on the tabletop. I also decided to give him brownish skin in honor of Kitten from the "If the Emperor had a text to speech device" and of course his name will be on the bottom of the base .

I am mostly done with him, just the final highlights on the gold and black armor left, the finishing up the base and working on the power axe.

So I finished up the first shield captain in the shadow keeper scheme and for a while something was bothering me about the eagle. Well it turns out because I forgot to paint the beak and the little metal bits on the model, after doing that I am much happier with it. I tried to copy a golden eagle feather pattern because well the custodes are gold and a golden eagle . Up next I am going to do some work on the first vexilla banner bearer in the emissary scheme with the white robes because I feel that it first the idea of their role well. I will get around to working on the terminators again soon, but probably not for another two weeks or so until my semester is over and I graduate.

In the mean time I am considering starting a Deepkin army sometime soon after I finish up the custodes so I will be trying to figure out schemes for them as well.

The shield captain is great man! I gotta say you got it on point with the beak and extra bits, the latest photo makes the eagle pop so much more! You should totally get deepkin, you'd definitely do them justice. Hell, even I want to get some deepkin and I don't even collect AoS they are amazing models

Thanks man! I am leaning more and more towards getting them, mainly because it has been years since I have a fantasy/AoS army and those were the VC so I feel like it is time to finally get on the AoS train after my failed attempt at IronJawz
