Thanks Ember ! But I think I should have painted the cloth part red rather than white.


Another Child of the Emperor today:





I had some "difficulties" with him.
Firstly, I painted all the white part BEFORE painting the backpack, so when I did it, it splattered on his helmet. I had to paint it anew. Stupid move...
Now the white is imperfect

And secondly, he fell into a pot of paint, but, fortunately, the paint had totally dried.

Warning From Magnus? Not Listening!





Holy Terra.

Sorry to hear that. My own project is full of problems, mostly to do with red paint. Brushpainting takes to long, and too many coats, and my new spray FAILED at what it was supposed to do in a most spectacular fashion (they turned out more orange than red).


Keep up the good work!

Sorry to hear that, Ember !
How did you manage to fix it ?
Thank you for the kind words

I painted my second apothecary yesterday, so here are the pics:

So, no new model today but I made myself a lightbox and I tried it with my IIIrd Legion !
I'm pretty happy with it, pictures are really better (but I made it a bit tiny). However, my phone isn't the best camera so...
Yes I know, the same models again, but I'm getting better with the pictures and it is an important part of a blog, isn't it ?^^
So do you see any difference ? Are the pictures better today ? Thanks !

So, I am painting some more cataphractii terminators, but I can't set my mind on the paintscheme:
Which one do you prefer ?
The original brown, the white one or the red one ?

Spoiler:



A wip neutral termi with no colours yet

Sorry for the bad pics, but as they are wip it is not that important

I may prefer the red one, but there is no red in the rest of the army so it would stand out a lot I guess

Good to see the 3rd are still getting some attention godardc. The metallic purple is great, it was the inspiration I’d been looking for when I did my Chaos Warriors and later my Traitor Guard, so thanks! Love the crisp white on their shoulder pads too... now hopefully it won’t be as long between update for these guys

Hey !
I'm glad I could help ! That's actually why I post: I know I am not great at taking pictures (I'm actually getting better !) or the best painter out there, but everything can help. I spend an enormous amount of time online before painting an army, looking for paint schemes, armies, ideas... All of this thanks to people who took the time to share. Thanks to them I could get ideas (like my cartoonish Eschers), wether for a full paintscheme or a small detail.
Feel free to share your purple guard !

As soon as the quarantine is over, I'll order a javelin and / or volkite weapons so it won't take as long, hopefully haha

So guys, I know I have nothing news, but I have some final pictues where the infantry is in good light, and where they are all together:

Spoiler:








So here we are ! Everything painted and correctly pictured, now awaiting reinforcements. The good news are I've painted all my lists and armies, even if I still have a fews units left to paint it is nothing I use in games, so 30k will have the priority as soon as I finish painting my Escher gang and receive those reinforcements !

Guys ! Guess what ? I had a converted praetor that I had forgotten to paint, and it's now done !
Here he is:

Spoiler:








Converted from BaC. I loved doing this guy, and I'm super happy with him. The cloak has been highlighted twice, I don't know if it shows on the pictures.

The guards are traitors from Blackstone fortress but what about the Chaos Warriors ? Are they super old ones ?
Nice work anyway, I like them !

That’s a good result! Praetor looks ace, I’m still gutted that I missed out on BaC :(

Correct, the guard are Blackstone Fortress and the Chaos Warriors are from Battle Master, which was a game from GW and MB. I’ve got the mounted Warriors being stripped at the moment.

Thanks for bringing this thread back to life godardc! Lovely to see some updates to the army. The metallic purple is inspired and they look brilliant all together. I think the dreadnought is my fave - very stoic/imposing.

Hope to see more soon

Back again !
I've had a somewhat fantastic year, fulfilling most of, if not all, of my wishes, be them personal or professional, but this brought me very far away from model making. And I'll have less time for the next 2 years. But right now I'm on vacation !
So it's a great time an update, isn't it ?

Just a glimpse of the things to come this week:

I am yet to decide which one I like the most, so let see of you have any preference ?

And...the force is based ! I kept purple and white, not the most contrasting but fitting for Emperor's Children and looking like the real life meadow that gave me inspiration.

Here the still wip Land Speeder Javelin, I'm a bit disappointed by the purple, it's clearly visible on the picture, not so much with naked eyes, there are "brush lines" visible.
However except for that I'm pretty happy globally with it. Still a few hours to go, and then I'll have to assemble and paint the crew.
Enjoy !

Great looking Speeder! The brush marks to be could be sold as weathering . I like how the gunner is standing, it’s a much more realistic pose than the seated 40k gunners

Hi there !
Putting my one week vacation at good use, I hereby present you my new champion (wip):





I used magnets for his head, pack and right arm. The pauldrons and his jetpack are to arrive this week, fortunately you will be able to see him completed and painted before Monday.

Kasper Vespasian, champion of the Emperor's Children, is done !
Unfortunately, I haven't received his pauldrons or jump pack yet, and my earth paint was dry, so I cannot go further today, but it's almost there:





And an alternative posing:


I hope you like it and he will be posted fully finished once I receive everything I need.

Hey !
It's nice to finally have some time to work on my projects, the few last months and next few months weren't / won't be great for The Hobby but I'm getting such a great professional opportunity, I'm blessed. Fortunately I'll be on vacation again this December to work probably on a FW dreadnought or some kakophony, I love those models.

In addition, I received the FW shoulders pads I was awaiting, pretty quickly to be honest, and I bought everything I needed for his base:
Spoiler:






So yeah, he is finally really finished this time, ready to slay my opponents' heroes and HQ !

So I went to my first Horus Heresy event in Paris, 16 players, 8 loyalists and 8 secessionists, the tables were divided between 3 different themes: 2 jungle tables, 2 industrial desert tables and 2 urban tables. We all played 3 games, one on each theme.
I fought against a SW (got my arse beaten hard, it was an ambush type game), a Salamander and a beginner Ultramarine.
I ended up winning two and losing one game. I met plenty of nice guys and we played on wonderful tables, it was a great day !
My list worked pretty well actually, the Maru Skara allowed me to quickly advance in the Salamander's deployment zone (we had to secure the opponent's deployment zone for this mission) but didn't work that well in defense (against the SW). I learned my lesson and put only 1 unit in reserve against the Ultramarines that had to rush into my deployment zone to escape. The Maru Skara is, all in all, a quite flexible RoW.
The two 15 strong blobs of tactical with an apothecary and a vexila each were surprisingly resilient and saved the day. The javelin worked exactly as intended, nothing incredible but always useful, I need a second one.
However I really need to buy artificer armors on my sergeants and an invulnerable save for my champion, the poor guy was killed by a Salamander champion...

Here are a few pictures:

Yeah I must admit they used better cameras that I used to do and the light was way more suitable than in my previous apartment !
It's so cool to see this project taking life from the first BaC testing model to playing the army at events
