Very nice I like the baroque look of the Custodes. How do they compare size-wise with a normal Marine?

And refuse to love the Spinosaurus because it is a hamfisted attempt at taking what you loved, making it TREX +++ and trying to sell you it.

Thabks dude i was slightly concerned that they might look small compared to my truesxale marines but no worries now

As for painting reds, have you tried a brown wash like Reikland Fleshade? I've found that with a re-highlight of the original colour looks pretty sweet

I thought I share my overall progress here:



Geigor, the most recent Marine I've painted, is on the left. On the right is the first marine I built and painted. That was roughly 3 years ago, so Ive made some progress at least


I also change my KSons painting method slightly, I now undercoat with Mephiston Red Spray, THEN glaze with watered-down Mephiston Red, THEN do an all-over Agrax Earthshade wash. After that Evil Sunz Scarlet and Fire Dragon Bright.

Love 'first vs latest' mini comparisons it's great to look back and see how far you've come.

Saying that, the banner on your first Marine's really not bad

My FW stuff finally arrived! (Sons torsos/MK IV heads)

So I decided to build Tolbek!







His right arm, legs and backpack are from BaC, his head is a MK IV KSons one, as is the torso. His left arm and shoulder pads are Rubric Marine ones, and the eye on his backpack is from the Rubric Marine sorcerer staff. I also gave him a book from a GK banner and a knife from the WE glade guard box. Oh, and a Vanguard Vet chainsword.


Next up are the rest of the seekers!

A question for you guys: I kinda want to do another character conversion for my army. Id like to do one of these. Which one of these should I do?

Chaplain: I guess? Doesn't seem too KSons-y to me...
Master of Signals: Good in-game, and Id Kina like to see a psychic MoS
Legion Champion: THIS could be awesome (read: Biomancy!!). Aaaand fluffy.
Viligator: Also kinda fluffy, especially with Amon and the KSons scout-things
Another Librarian: Why not?
Forge Lord: Not TOO fluffy, but ok. Also a potential cheese king (I wrote something about him on the KSons tactics thread)
Siege Breaker: Again, not fluffy.
Primus Medica: Fluffy-ish, plus useful on the battlefield
Moritat: Nerfed to death, but I like them. Also fluffy.
Delegatus: serves no real purpose. No idea why id do him...
Legion Praevian: I don't have any robots (YET!!!! -Ember'sInnerForgeworldLover) so doesn't have any purpose.


Please help guys!

Psychic MoS sounds pretty awesome. I'd go with that.

My votes go for the MoS and the Legion Champion specifically the latter (I'm picturing a KSons Emperor's Champion with a massive 2-handed Khopesh).

I realized that a ML 1 Champ with a force stave and biomamcy (for Uron Arm) attacks at WS 6, STR 8! That is, I also found these combinations

Potential KSons Cheese Combinations.


Master of Signals.....135p
Mastery lv. 1 (telekinesis)
Artificer armour
Refractor Field
Force Axe
-Raptora

Any power is good.


Legion Champion.....125p
Mastery Lv. 1
Refractor Field
MC Force Stave
Artificer Armour
-Pavonii

IRON ARM!!



Forge Lord.....145p
Mastery Lv. 1
MC Force Axe
Rad grenades
Boarding Shield
-Pavonii

Enfeeble for him, coupled with Rad Grenades.


I was also wondering if anyone wanted to see my Raven Guard army (minus the vindicator and Drop Pods, those are still being painted).

How'd you do the base on the right there? Looks very cool.

I stuck bits of sprue down and then covered the whole thing with PVA. I then dumped it in my Base Box (Mostly sand, plaster chips, small rocks, gravel, dried PVA, sprue clippings, grass tuffs, clump foliage, even a few melts guns and CSM bolters). I then spray painted it Chaos Black and dry brushed over it, followed by Agrelllan Earth in patches and BFTBG/ Nurgles Rot.

Now, I am also posting this to ask you guys something. What should I do for the next Unofficial Painting Comp? The theme is "Primal", so no KSons, but I have a few other ideas:

1: https://www.games-workshop.com/resources/catalog/product/600x620/99070207002_CairnWraithNEW01.jpg
Dark Mechanicum Tech-priest with this as a base.

2: Some kind of Space Wolf

3: ORKS!

Out of the three, the wolf is the most 'primal' but the Dark Mechanicum tech priest is what I wanna see the most. And I have spilt more pots of paint than I want to think about.

Holy Terra.

I decided to use some of y unpainted BaC minis for the tactical squads, so I was left with a few extra MK IIIs. Heres what I did with one:







Easy conversion, his bolt pistol was given an Ork bayonet and I used a bolter magazine to make it look special (Its an Archaeotech pistol, after all). His banner is half a Plague Monk stave with scrolls from the same box, as is the censer (cut off from a plague monk flail).


I also decided to use Ahriman's bas for Tolbek, and build a new one for Ahriman.



More work will be done today, and I'll hopefully purchase my Cairn Wraith (for the Tech Priest) later today or tomorrow.
