Whilst I'm not a fan of the colour, I can't deny how good the paint job is. You've done a really nice job on these Will. Any plans to do a transport for them?

I was a fan of the color until I have seen Apologists SoH.
If I can find that paint he used I am going to try a test one see if it will be worth stripping and redoing these guys.
Transports and Tanks were done ages ago,going to take an army group shot soon

I am seriously think of selling these guys so I can buy a whole boatload of mkIV armor.

Well anyway, judging by your most recent paintjobs I'd say your work has improved tremendously. Looking forward to see how you tackle the new force.

Always a shame to sell a personalised army - hope you get a good amount of money for it.

Looking at the pics, it seems the first SoH you did are a less lurid colour than the later ones - they seem more of a grey colour and closer to how I imagine the SoH should look. Not sure if this is just the pics or a change in how you painted the armour, but its worth bearing in mind for the next lot.

Oh cripes! What a shame to be selling them I really like the colour you've got here. sad.gif

If you're not happy with the scheme, aren't you tempted to simply repaint? That'd ensure all your lovely conversion work isn't lost.

Well most of the army was the old Red Scorp upgrade
If I can get $350 for the army that pays for 30 True Mk4 5 Mk5 Assault the Contemptor and guns for all.
This is the first test mini for the new army using the new color.
What do you guys think Too Light,Too Dark,Just Right

Ok here we go again biggrin.gif
I love painting banner bearers so I did him first.
Keeping with the theme Ancients carry the banner I outfitted him with MkII Crusade Armor.
For the banner I went with the classic Sons banner from the artbooks.
I then used hobby chain,skulls and a custom icon to top it off.
I may change the eye on his belt,I am not loving the yellow on him

Ok had a nice easy day with nothing to do but play Kill Team and paint.
So I finished up the banner bearer.
I am much happier with the new eye on his belt.

Here is the next member of the command squad the Apothecary
I used Grey knight Termie bits for his backpack and the vials.
It fits almost perfect on the Mk2 backpack
He is still in progress but I wanted to show off the backpack.

Very cool I'm enjoying seeing these develop. I particularly like the glossy red on his belt buckle. What's your technique for that?

Basecoat a blood red with a blazing orange dot in center.
Then cover with Tamiya Clear Red simple as pie smile.gif

I finished up the Apothecary,I really like him he came together well.
I used my standard true sons head(chaos lord)
I bought a bunch of termie lord heads to use as unhelmeted members so they all look like Horus.
