I just signed in on this nice forum and since everyone likes to show of his stuff I like to do that to.
I just made a picture with my new phone and I hope they come out good enough for all you to see my take on the Warmasters finest.

As you can see I used a bit darker green to represent them. I like my warriors to look like they been fightin and there armour is not that clean of colour anymore. In the book says they are sea green and if I look at the sea were I live it it is dark green with a touch of light sand floating trough it, that was my inspiration for there colour.

The logo is done in a really light grey, I know it sould be black but on this green you cant see the black logo nicely so I decided to go straight into the dark colour and use a light colour to make it stand out more.

Hope you all like it.

He looks really cool. Great job!

P.S.: Your signature is brilliant. :lol:

EDIT: Look at his right hand leg, it has a mold line on it! :(

Vissah - February 11, 2010 05:50 PM (GMT)
Thanx for the nice comments :D

I know about the moldlines but all my models got moldlines on them.
Im more into playing than painting so I want mymodels to look good on the tabletop since that is were they must shine :P

I will get a whole army shot maybe tonight and post it up somewere tomorrow.
Its a 1700 point list cause that is the point level of the tournaments over here.

Heheh, that's what I do too. :P The people I'd be playing against really don't care at all.

The army shot should be very awesome, I will wait in anticipation for it.

Yeah man, looks good. Be good to see an army pic :)

Vissah - February 13, 2010 11:26 PM (GMT)
Im really sorry the army pic is not on it yet (lots of schoolwork got in the way).
I will make some pics soon :D


Vissah - February 18, 2010 04:59 PM (GMT)
As promised here are the pics of my army. I know I have men in there with the eagles on there chest and I know they did not have it but I read somewere that some vets did get them for being really good and a vet ofcourse.
Since they are rollin with Abaddon himself I thought ofcourse they must be vets cause Abaddon does not want to roll with anything else, and I just like the look of the eagles in my army (I study history and I find the WW II really interresting and the eagles make me think of it ofcourse :P).

Anyway enough talk its a 1700 point list and I use the Chaos Codex.
1700 is the tournament limit here, its a bit of a weird number but it plays really nice :D

Every soldier in my army has a helmet on so I put a helmet on Abaddon aswell cause of the coherent look.

First the big man Abaddon himself and his Bodyguards, one Power Fist and Icon of Chaos Glory and three Power Weapons.

The troops, 3 units of Marines with Sarge Power Fist, dual Melta and Icon of Chaos Glory.

Two units of counts as Obliterators.
I dont like mutations and stuff so Idecided to field one unit as a Heavy Weapon team and the Terminator once are the Heavy Weapon team vets, who ofcourse gets the better gear and armour :D

Yay I'm not the only one! :P

Great job on the SoH! Great seeing Abaddon with his helmet, as people always seem to show him without one.

Pacific - February 19, 2010 10:07 AM (GMT)
Thats a great army you've got there, certainly very characterful!

I like the terminators stocked up with weapons (you can see how the Obliterator virus would have worked there!) and the paint scheme and modelling effort you have working across the entire force.

Looks to be well representative of a Heresy era force if you want to get into nitty gritty, great stuff!

Vissah - February 22, 2010 10:17 AM (GMT)
Thanx for the nice comments.
I know its not Heresy armour and stuff like that but that will just cost me to much money and time to make wich I dont have :o

But I did my best and I hope that shows.

Vissah - February 26, 2010 07:39 PM (GMT)
Not the best of pictures but here are my boys and there Space Wolves allies taking on some foul Xenos.

excellent mate, think you would have been better off if you'd went for the white of the luna wolves ;)

Hehehehe we still won that game :D

But hey when the Traitorhand strikes it strikes with the force of a Legion :D

Cpt.Loken - April 12, 2010 08:05 PM (GMT)
nice models, though the greens stronger than i imagined....

nice though ;)

Vissah - April 13, 2010 05:17 PM (GMT)
Thanx Loken.

Yeah the green is a bit dark but I seen the Sons being done in a lot of different types of green and this is how I imagined them when I started them.

SQ - April 24, 2010 04:46 PM (GMT)
Huhu,

Very nice army mate! Though I'm not a big fan of the Sons of Horus colors in general, you do manage to make it look good.

I would however try to show the Eye of Horus symbol a bit more, so that people know that it's a 'Sons of Horus' army, because right now it looks more like a Salamander one.

I see you are putting the symbol on shoulderpads already, but I'd also try and use your Rhinos/Land Raider to display this symbol. Slap some eyes on it, so you take a few steps away from Salamanders, and it'll be spot on!

Vissah - May 15, 2010 08:37 PM (GMT)
Yeah Im going to work on the eyes on the rhino's and raiders.
Im not that good at freehanding so Im going to have to take some time to do it but a mate of my is going to help me out there.
Thanx for the advise :D

Vissah - June 14, 2010 06:47 PM (GMT)
This is my Horus (Counts as Abaddon)

I did the green cape so he fits in nicely with the rest of the army.
I made him a big bigger (about 3/4 mm) he is the Primarch so he is allowed to be bigger than the rest ofcourse :D

SQ like you and some of my mates suggested I did go for the eye :D

This is the first time I did something like this and I think it came out looking good for the tabletop, my whole army is tabletop quality cause Im a lot into gamin and less into painting but when I paint something it has to look good on the table :D

Anyway here the first Rhino were I painted the Eye of Horus, 2 more to go and a Land Raider.

great work on the eye dude, free hand can be real tough, the worst would probably be straight lines fo me :D yours looks spot on and so does horus btw, just prefer white to green though ;)

Vissah - September 27, 2010 06:41 PM (GMT)
This is Horus Lupercal his personal Land Raider.
The army is 100% done and I need to make some nice pics of them to put on the site and maybe if they are good enough see if the army can make it into the Display case :D

Anyway here it is:

Michaelangelos - September 27, 2010 07:07 PM (GMT)
wow i really like this army and the land raider is cool

Vissah - September 28, 2010 11:37 AM (GMT)
Thanx :D

I am gonna make some pics this week and put them up :D

Vissah - January 18, 2011 06:20 PM (GMT)
Sorry for the really late update but here are some pics.
I was making a Deamon Prince to lead my men and I did some finishing in the freehands on some parts.
I still need to finish a squad of Alpha Legion (Chosen) since Alpharius was the Primarch who came to Horus and worked a lot with Horus in his beginnin days, I thought it would be nice to have a squad of them to buff the list to 2000 points.
The only problem is that Im in my last year of my studie and I need to do a lot so I dont have much time to paint, but when they ready I put them up here to.

The whole army ia ready to roll again and if you guys want to see more pics just let me know.

I think you've done a good job of identifying it as the SoH Legion.. like we were saying in the other thread, there are so many definitions of different greens out there. But, the big 'eyes' on the vehicles and on each marine help dispel the problem that might cause. Looks good! Interesting to see what you come up with the AL squad.

Vissah - January 19, 2011 02:51 PM (GMT)
Thanx for the feedback.
When we get our new tables ready at the club I can make some pics of everything I got when it is all done.

I make some pics of what I already got and put them in the Alpha section.
