Thanks very much for the comments! I’m still loving painting these so I’m super happy others are still enjoying seeing them.

I think I’ll be ready for an army shot soon, but I need to finish a couple of HQs first!

I would love a shot of the army too. Exceptional work, my only complaint is that you live to far away from me to get a game in.

I love the attitude of his frenzied attack here. Your painting skills highlight his expression of fury! This whole thread is filled with beautiful work.

Well if you're ever in the UK I'm game!

Just gorgeous work! Like everyone else, I’m blown away by those raptors!! That is the first Primaris dread I’ve liked.
Don’t suppose you would share your colours?

Thanks man! As for the colours, I did a tutorial!

And now it's back to the beloved boys in red.

I promised when I sold my Blood Angels that I would never wholly abandon the Sons of Sanguinius. The opportunity to come back to them was presented by a good friend of mine, who after buying a few items from my collection commissioned me to paint these two Xiphon Interceptors. And very enjoyable to paint they were too! I hope he likes them and that they serve him well. We'll find out in a couple of weeks as I'm delivering them in person!

Love what you did with the cockpit lighting... very nice indeed and never seen it done quite that way before. As with your raptors, beautiful saturations and modulation (which you wisely toned down the gradient extremes for the red), though if I may offer one small critique, I think the blacks could be a bit deeper or more modulated, a touch flat grey compared to the rest.

Awesome job as usual -

Thanks MajorTom! Fair point about the black/grey. The models are actually a bit darker in reality than in these pics (the stand makes them quite close to the lamp, which is fixed to the top of the light box), so the black/grey does seem deeper – but I agree a bit more contrast on those areas would be good.

I actually hadn't noticed the cockpit until Tom mentioned it. Are the guys painted white/light blue as if lit from the controls?

The pilots and cockpit interior were painted dark blue, and the pilot was painted white on his front side only to give the impression of being lit from the controls, yes. The cockpit glass was tinted blue-green with ink to add to this effect, getting darker and more opaque towards the edges that meet the fuselage.

Hi guys, I'm back after a forced hiatus due to (another) arm injury. I was a bit worried about further loss of movement and feeling but all seems to be well after about a month of recovery

I thought I'd test out my painting hand and ease myself in with a single model, so here is the first HQ character I've completed for the Raptors – Lieutenant Korik. I wanted to keep him consistent with the troops but I did spend a little bit longer over the highlights and details.

Hope you like him!

Thanks youwashock!


Now, you guys are probably bored of seeing these but I’ve finished another five Intercessors! I actually enjoy painting them quite a lot but this brings my total up to 20 marines so it will soon be time for something different – and arguably more interesting

Anyway, I hope you like them!

Well I did write this little tutorial: https://www.themightybrush.com/how-to-paint-raptors-space-marines/

Most of it is the same for vehicles except I spray the Athonian Camoshade - using it more like a tint - and then use dark brown oil wash for recess shading. The chipping is done with a sponge and then there’s some light rust oil wash around the bottom.

Steal away! Darker, grittier Salamanders would look awesome I reckon!

I wish I could pick one thing out of your work to comment on, but it is all fantastic. You really nail that gritty look on those marines and the colors and shading transition beautifully.

I aspire to paint this well.
