Bobbing along on the briny North Sea, and Montrose, Scotland when home

Loving what I see, but was curious about 1 or 2 things.

You said before that MK VI armour would be the newest variant yo would use, but I see 1 or 2 MK VII heads in there, are you planning to convert them to MK V's (heresy armour) by adding studs and altering the grille?

The lack of overt Chaos or Imperial iconography(except the Captains eagle, is that to fool the loyalists? Btw I l think it looks great and the colour for it is perfect) sets them off beautifully, and shows their ambiguous & mysterious nature to a tee.

Keep it going, they look amazing and you have a great talent.

Btw how is the ordinatus engine coming along?

Thank you guys, warms my heart and all that stuff.

Yes, I will attempt to convert those Mk VII helmets into Mk V, if it don't turn out nice I'll slap on a pair of Mk IV ones.
As for the iconograpy..well.. there will probably be an Aquila here and there.. no chaos stars though..

Today there has been some painting done.. halfway finished with the apothecary and melta specialist, been taking some pics of each step of the painting, thought someone might be interested in
a short 'how to paint'- thingy.

Yeah.. the Ordinatus engine.. well.. it will be finished some day.. i had to throw out all the scetches I had done though since my mechanicum project took a rapid turn to the left and then an unexpected
dive into the Eye of Terror..

So I need to do a little re-thinkin' see..

Been building today though!

I had a sorcerer lying around.. and my Dark Mechanicum -DO- need an archmagos.. so.. some WIP photos of that







Scratchbuilt a gun and some stuff.. not quite sure how I want things yet.



somewhat better pic of what will be used in the finished model.


I have a little hobby-thread going in the P&M section. Some say it's the best blog on Dakka, some don't agree, most belive it would be better if I finished at least one project some time this century and not just kept starting new ones.

Hmm, no.. it's not a conversion beamer miss dee.. it's some random warp-energy cannon-thing.. I think..

Loyalist and Loyalists.. well.. that's just the thing with the XX Legion isn't it.. you don't really know now do you?

Thanks for the positive CnC, the magos updates will go into the 'Pimp my sorcerer 40k' challenge thread, I won't be starting the Mechanicum project until my alphas are done
so I won't be opening another thread for them just yet.

lol i actually say it all the time, i even ordered a pizza one night the guy asked my name i said "Alpharius" he replied "No I AM ALPHARIUS" (true story) we both lol'd and agreed we were sad nerdy types, we actually play games together now, weird world we live in,

Anyhow i digress, i always toyed with them as i wanted to do a chaos chapter but hate the idea of mutations and raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaage, then i read Legion.......

SOmetimes.. I am very intelligent.. I am not that good at sculpting.. I -never- touch the stuff besides for some gap filling and I rarely have to do even that..

Now however.. with no batteries in the camera I can't finish the models I was painting because I am photographing each step for a small painting tutorial.. so what does a smartass like myself do?

Well.. the -wrong-thing to do is to scrounge up some legs and shoulderpads from a terminator kit, a nice helm.. some odds and ends and make an attempt to make a passible primarch model..
And while one's at it.. let's not do something simple! nooo! we have to try to sculpt a Mk IV Maxumus armor.. Jeez what was I thinking?..

well.. the GS is curing and I am thinking feverishly about a way to make this look at least a little good.. *kicks the teeth in on the inner perfectionist* oh sush you..

I really, really love the poses on your marines, they're all uniqe and very dynamic, even without the paintjob they're a joy to behold! The two lascannon marines are my favorites atm I think.
Btw, the music that you've mentioned so far really gives the blog the right feeling, can understand that you were inspired by it. Even I, one of the slowest painters on dakka, felt the need to pick up my brush and do some work.
Really looking forward to seeing more!

So, with some spare time and new batteries in my camera I can summarise that it's update time!

We'll start off lightly with that little 'how to paint' thingy I promised.


First off, black undercoat. (doh! ) for some odd reason I painted the leather details first.. basecoated 50:50 chaos black / scorched brown.





Paint armor with Necron Abyss ( I use a speshul secret mix with black and turqiuse in the mix but it's not a big difference) and metal areas boltgun metal, codex grey on the armor joints.




Give the whole shebang a black wash, badab black, water and chaos black.. whatever you have.




Paint the armor with necron abyss, leaving out the areas that are not in full view and all the normal stuff for shading, you know what I mean





Mix Necron Abyss and Snot Green 50:50 with some water, this mix needs to be a bit thinner than what you normally use and highlight with broad strokes.




Highlight with Snot green.




Mix Skull white and snot green 50:50 and apply the extreme highlight. I have been doing some other stuff here too but yeah.. here you go.. alpha armour done.






Aaand I forgot to take a pic of the finished model on it's base.. bleh.. I'll add it in the next update..
So I have been playing with putty and plastic.. trying to make a passible Alpharius model.. I'd like to remind you that this is very very WIP and that I never have done this before..

And yeah.. this didn't work out at all.. scale is all off.. I'm not that much of a fan of the truescale. oh well, some other way maybe. this one's getting recycled.

Thanks for the 'how to' steps - much appreciated!

I might try something like that for my version of Omegon's Effrit Stealth Squad.

And I must say, that's a good start to Alpharius, though I must also say that I'm much thinner in real life!

Thanks guys, glad you like it, now get to work on duplicating it.. there are Ultrasmurfs to crush out there!

And alpharius.. I recon you are also lacking a slightly non-standard Mk IV Powered suit of Warplate.

As for the Alpharius model, you might want something to work off..

Ugh - please do NOT base it off of that!

Besides, given what we learned from LEGION, we know that Alpharius and Omegon, and indeed, no one in the Legion!, looks like that.

That's when Mr. Blanche apparently was suffering from a high grade fever and attempted to still draw a Primarch...

Very interesting take on the scheme, and fantastic work overall! Not taking the blue above abyss is a really clever choice, as it makes the color kind of an indeterminate indigo, highlighting the green nicely without competing with it or making the entire scheme a bit 'garish' as it usually is.

Well done!
