I'm going to amend my entry. Built another child of the emperor and I'm way more stoked to paint this guy. If I have time I will do the original guy too as he is half done.

This head was just a stop gap. It's been replaced now. Progress shots are in my P&M blog.

"I know what you're thinking. 'Did he fire six shots or only five'? Well to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I kind of lost track myself. But being that this is a .75 Artifex Bolter, the most powerful boltgun in the imperium, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well do ya, heretic?"

Small update! 4 out of 5 built and primed. (The fifth will need some green stuff etc, so I’ll leave that be for now.)

Starting to paint the first of the four. Looks like I’ll be getting 1 or 2 done for this, as opposed to the 5!

Almost finished the gold, just needs a final silver highlight which i can do same time as the gun metals. I got a cheapo lightbox too, £8 on ebay. Seems pretty good, certainly better than the strip light and white paper i was using before.

Hang on, we can't have QAR doing two entries - there are only three top spots!!

I love those models, Maharg - I can't wait to see it.
Those glowing green eyes look great, Jamie!

And the beautiful subtle metallics and oxidisation on maxwin's scythe - awesome.

QAR's WIPs are always better than my finished product. But, I'm learning and pushing myself.
Queen Annes's Revenge and Maxwin, you two are my inspiration right now.

Here's some WIP from me.

Nice progress everyone!

Got some work done this weekend myself:

Probably need another layer of red to help smooth stuff out, the green gems need their gloss, and then all the edging. Ugh, edge highlights. My least favorite part. Makes a difference though, so I push through.

And bases, maybe decals, etc.

I'm still chipping away. Armour is done, two bare heads are nearly done and just started the wings.

As always feedback is most welcome and appreciated.

Nice!
Not much to say for feedback. Love the color combo, and the glowing green eyes, is that a flour paint?

A question though, Read a short story where a death watch blood angle had black orb for eyes, is that a unique or a common gene trait?

Cheers mothsniper. The green glow is the new gw tesseract glow over white, works kind of like the old waywatcher green over white but has a sort of two tone quality to it kind of like the contrast paints.
I dont read much fluff and in what little i have read i havent seen any mention of black eyes. Maybe that particular marine had succumbed to the black rage?

Oh cool! I'll try that paint out.
Black eyes I read/heard in a Audiodrama.
Mission- Purge audiobook Warhammer 40,000 by Gav Thorpe Perhaps black rage indeed.

Grimdark indeed, the chaps seem to be in jolly good mood about it though very wolflike of them

I feel like it turned out okay. Not at the level of QAR... but I'll get there someday.

Yeah, Do you think the contrast can be bumped up a bit though?

Man, those are both very high standards to aim for!

Kind of bleahed out on Fenris, I'd like to switch over to the Tethru Harbinger I didn't end up starting last month--long lived librarian-warrior, in a long war against ignorance and disorder.
Reposted proof, as I didn't paint it any last month:

And pretty much done as of last night--may try to do I'm not sure what to push the cloak up a bit, and may erase and redo the front scrolls, but otherwise, just need to take less cluttered final pictures.
