Well, my project to rescue this old model has been a nice little success.
There are parts of the model, such as the face and the skull he is holding, that lost a fair bit of detail in the process, but I think I have managed to fix them well enough.
I must admit, I would love a squad of these guys to go alongside him! :O
So he is pretty much done. I was debating about how best to replace his backpack. I know banners allow for some cool artwork, but I tend to leave them out, as they just strike me as being very impractical.
I tried to make his face look a little more leathery and sunken. I spent a bit of time goggling corpses, which was a jolly experience and I am sure someone in law enforcement is having a field day with my google history. 😀
I took a few pics to see how well the blue flames and the rest of the paint job sit together. Quite happy with it!
Every now and then I come across and old battered model from my youth that I want to try and rescue, and in this case it’s Sergeant Centurious!
Some of the details have been really hammered away on this guy, mostly around the face and the skull he is holding (the Animum Malorium), but I do like trying to rescue an old model, especially a classic like this one.
Pleasantly surprised to see my Thousand Sons Contemptor Dreadnought in this month’s issue of White Dwarf.
It’s always pretty amazing when I am lucky enough to get my minis in this magazine, it will never ever get old to me. I am very lucky.
Kor Phaeron is finished, and here is a pic of his good self and Erebus representing! 😀

I am not entirely sure I am that keen on their bases, or the scenic base. Nothing wrong with it, just not sure it fits my other Word Bearers.
Here is some pics of Kor Phareon on his own. I love how this guy walks into his suit of terminator armour, and the contrast between the heretical red armour and the loyalist grey is pretty damn sweet.
My own real issue with this model is the face. It looks like he has had a stroke. This may actually be intentional. His creaking body has been pumped full of so many drugs and undergone so many surgeries, that his features represent that. But it doesn’t look sinister, it just looks a bit derpy. Other than that, I am pleased with these two. Loads of the detail is difficult to pick out on these models, and I think I managed to get away with it!
Not had much time for painting recently, but I am plodding along as best I can with Kor Phaeron.
I am very glad they changed their colour scheme during the heresy, finding this grey armour a little dull to paint! 😀
Bit of work done on Kor Phaeron. You can probably tell I prefer the Erebus miniature. But He is still a bad ass character! 😀
The best character in all of 30k is finished! High Chaplain Erebus!
I didn’t really get any painting done on this guy this weekend, stupid stomach, but I got some bits done here and there. Nearly done! Face was crazy to paint!
