I vote the Reiver helm. Not seeing his face gives him a bit more of an executioner vibe like "It doesn't matter who I am, what I've done or even if I'm human. I am here to end you" It's the impersonal "business" of killing that strikes me with a model like this.

I think the bald clean head fits best, because it gives him the nimbus of "no one ever drew my blood". And I have already stolen your idea and gave my guy a spare Custodes head
Funnily enough I also had taken out the fourth head out of my bits box, but it will get on one of the assault marines to have a second sgt. for 5-man squads.

Cleaned up the full reiver helm to paint along with the heads.

In news that I’m sure will shock absolutely nobody out there, I’ve been building a lot this week. I might have put a color on the librarian? Not a lot of paint went down. But build progress:


Build the whole of the big sprue. The bladeguard are mostly just stock. I did cut the iron halos off. If they get them in the new codex, I’ll be a little torqued, but live with it. These are brother-veterans, not officers. For the exterminators I just did a head swap on the sage with a spare sarge head from the aggressor kit. Their guns are just pushed on for now, will take them off to prime/paint. The two basic guys in that squad are the only non-modded ones.

If you're still polling I'd vote for the reiver helm. Also I like what you did with the ancient and replacing the skeletal hand. I came to the same conclusion.

Nice to see you getting stuck in with the Indomitus guys. Honestly I like all four of your ideas for the Judiciar's head, so I'm afraid I can't help you pick one! I went with the stock head on mine if only for the reason of it'll probably be unique because nobody is using it! The head crest on the Captain is a great touch, too.

I would go with 3 or 4.

Completely impractical...but thus very much in line with 40K.

My two cents,

Reasonably nice day yesterday, primed the lot of those guys. Rattlecan is feeling a bit light, might need to grab a new one before the next batch.

All need to take a back seat for a bit. I want to clear the WIPS, which have been loitering around for far too long. And the entry for Masterminds, will be these guys entering in with their synchronized smiting.


Already have the red down on the seer.

And as tempting as the new guys are, I still have a lot of backlog to work on. I keep on nagging The Boy to finish up squads so he can get them to the table, I should set a good example. A pair more each for infiltrators and the SoBs will cap those squads at 10 models. At least once I finish the sisters on the bench. I would also like to get more Eldar done; year has been light for them. And I think the ruggedness of the wraithblades is going to be required in 9th, so they might get bumped up the queue.

If I end up with a spare handle, the Judicar is probably first in line. I might do up the heads first, as part of my paint spare bits goal, see how those turn out.

Excited to see these guys get paint. Rather than sycronized smiting, I think you should set them up opposite each other so it looks like they're wistfully reaching towards each other through the maelstrom of war. A romeo and julet thing going on...
Two psykers, one doomed love.... On second thought, this is entering the realm of bad fan-fiction quickly. I like your syncronized smiting idea better

I envision them joining forces to fend off the tyranids that are infesting the workspace.

Edit:

Funny, they seem to be doing a good job! The SC: Tyranid box I ordered is a week overdue from the last date of the arrival estimate, so I’ve started the process of getting in touch with the seller and seeing if they can track it/send a new one. So be careful out there in the warp, there are some tyranids lurking in the dark...

Nice to see you and a couple of others ploughing on through Indomitus. I also like the hand swap. I need to think about what to do for mine.

Though guards may sleep and ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

If they wanted pets, they could just adopt a tyranid. They make great pets. They are affectionate, and relly just want hugs and snugs. And biomass, but what growing pup/kitty doesn’t want some treats?



Started blocking in colors. I think the walking tent is going to get the inside of his robe based (done) and his legs worked on before I glue him to his base. I knew if was going to be a nightmare getting a brush in there after Idid, so left him loose. But I don’t want to paint the whole thing holding him by random parts. That just leads to paint rubbing off.

Some more clean up passes on the back bench stuff. Need to buckle down.

And clean more mold lines.
