Hello, everyone, so as motivation to get my mountain of unpainted miniatures painted, I’ve decided to start a project log here on dakka dakka. I’ve been a long time lurker, but haven’t been the most active poster. So to start out the year, I finished off my space marine primaris kill team. I’ve done them in a pre-heresy thousand sons scheme, as they are my favorite legion. So without further ado, here are some pictures.






Any comments or questions are appreciated

Off to a great start by the looks! I've not seen anyone build Primaris 1k Sons before so this should be one to watch! I really like the metallic red you've achieved, do you mind sharing your recipe?

An excellent start! The helmets look like they fit in perfectly, and i like them quite a bit more than the base reiver helmets.

Thanks Tyranid Horde, for the metallic red i used a black primer followed by vallejo metal color steel, dark aluminum, silver, and aluminum sprayed in a zenithial fashion with my airbrush. Then i did a number of coats of forgeworld angron clear red. Next i washed the recesses with null oil gloss.

Amazing turtles, yeah the heads fit in nicely, and I too am not a fan of the reviver skull mask helmets, I thought these would fit in with the thousand sons theme much more.

So to complete my Primaris thousand sons kill team, i just finished my librarian commander.



I’m also trying to learn how to take better pictures, and i think i need a better light setup, but anyway, any comments or criticism is appreciated.

That's a great looking kill team, and as Tyranid Horde said, not something that you see every day! I like the idea (and painting/modelling opportunities) of pre-heresy traitor legions in the 40k setting.

For better mini photography, I'd recommend Garfy's tutorials on the subject, they really helped me!

Getting back into the swing of painting again. Started working on a small group of stormcasts. Here’s my test model.

I love that Stormcast! Where's the head from? I'd maybe try black for the base rim though..

Stormcast head looks great, but that Candy red is asbsolutely gorgeous.Do you think it would work with a hairy brush or no? I have hard so many recipes for it with airbrush, but wonder if you can get something similar without it.

Seconding the question of where the helmet comes from, i love it! The whole model looks great, and quite imposing.

Thanks for the kind words, the heads are the knights heads from puppetswar, there is also a crested variant which i plan on using for my heroes or champions.

Regarding the candy red, not sure if it will work without the airbrush, i have corrected a few mistakes by applying the metallic over the error and applying the clear red over that, so it might work.

Finished up the group this afternoon, comments and criticism appreciated.

Those guys are sweet. The color scheme and head swap make them less ostentatious, but they still have plenty of presence.
