Well, as I will have two of these guys when I pick up Indomitus, I decided to make him a test model, Sir Duplicatus.

Think I’m going with Scythes of the Emperor again .

Thanks guys. While I do like how he is turning out, I keep wondering if maybe is shouldn’t do a chapter which has transfers . I know I have some transfers I ordered for the Scythes somewhere, but the mountain of shame is in the way. I also cannot find my index Astartes, which really annoys me.

Anyway, progress from this morning.

You might notice he is on the Indomitus box I just picked up....along with another Elite edition, so I have the other two of the triples that I can test the color schemes on now for other chapters.

I am thinking of Dark Angels (Another one of my older buys) since with today’s purchase I have 9 of the new bikes (And NO I will not do White Scars, I’m not trying to paint white )

Oh well, time to assemble like Avengers.

Scythes of Emperor always look great when done well. Yours is done well, of course. The colour of the robe goes really well with the black and yellow.

If the problem is the yellow how about using the red and black for Fleshtearers?

While the burgundy was just going to be a one off for the units robes, I think I have decided to model my force as units from the 7th company and replace the purple with burgundy. So I may have to remake the chapter symbols to be a piece of rhubarb dipping into some custard .

Started the Judiciar, I may make the inside of the robes a dark red to honor the red normally seen in Scythes artwork. I didn’t want to do all black because then it looks more like an Imperial fist/Black Templar Emperors Champion than anything else. Besides, sticking with the color scheme of the Scythes opens up options for all the details. Though I was tempted to do a golden chestplate instead of the yellow, but then figured that if I kept the black parts black, what was the point. The enemies of the Emperor should already be shaking when they find out the Scythes are in the system.

Also started a biker, not bad, but I think I’ll try another option on the next one. The yellow sides are a bit much. I may just do the casing over the bolsters as yellow on the next one to see how that turns out. I have 9 bikes , so I can play around a bit.

Biker 2, I like him better so far, might just be the black helmet. (Insert Dark Helmet image here ) Not sure how I goofed up with a yellow helmet to begin with

I'd agree with you on the bikes, black with a yellow cover looks less IF. In general the colours look fantastic and it's making me rethink doing mine as more Red Scorpions

Red Scorpions are cool. I might have a company worth of their shoulder pads somewhere from when I bought them for my old custom chapter.

Forgot to take a picture of the chaplain WIP yesterday. Stayed with chapter colors instead of the all black.

Lovely choice going for Scythes, they were one of the first chapters I was introduced to in lore when they got eaten by the Tyranids so it's cool to see a resurgence in their lore and the number of people painting them.

Very nice yellow and I like your choice of robe colour.

Yeah, it was a hard pill to swallow, but I am starting to think that Robute Girllyman is really dead and stuffed in a closet, replaced by Omegon and Cawl is Alpharius (who isn’t really dead). Just waiting for GW to flip the script and all the Primaris are actually traitor geneseed.

The yellow is Averland sunset with Uriel yellow highlights and flash guts yellow for extreme highlights. I’ve started to coat the Averland sunset in Nazdreg yellow and do a second layer of Averland and then the highlights. It gives the recesses a red/brown shadow that I am really liking.

Viterbi wrote:Chaplain is coming along great, love the contrast between the robe and the turquoise chain for the cross.

Thanks V, I’m trying to play the color wheel game with bringing in subtle accent colors, the blue just called to me.

Well, I assembled the rest of the Marines last night and started one of the eradicator marines this morning. I will prime the rest before I start painting them, but he was just screaming for color. Pic s shortly, ATT was just here to switch out my sons phone for a new one.

Still contemplating the Necron side of things. I am really feeling like bright silver with white accents for the main colors and energy I was thinking the yellow like I did on my Sylvaneth weapons.

But I want something to contrast against the Scythes, so I might wind up going Green Afterall , or blue.....or red .

Eradicator mostly done. Needs badges, and markings, and base
