Word Bearers Test model

I am finally getting round to painting up a new Word Bearers army.  Unlike my previous army, I really wanted to strike a more sinister, darker tone for the army.

This is the first of many models!

Recently, any Word Bearers I have painted have been characters, and I have blended the dark red and black together. This is fine for characters, however for rank and file troops it is time consuming. And for the entire army it meant there would be inconsistent shades of red across different units.

To get around this I have mixed together my own dark red for the base colour.

This is a mix of Abaddon Black and Mephiston red.  Knowing I would need a lot of it, I mix them together into one pot. So any unit I paint now will be the exact same colour as the next.

I am hoping to get the whole army done by next summer. So I foresee a lot a Word Bearers in my future!

Word Bearers Sorcerer

I have had this model built and undercoated ready to be painted since he came out. And I have finally got round to popping a quick lick of paint on him!

I love the model, but I am not sure he has a place in my 9th edition Word Bearers army, so I haven’t spent too much time on him.

Indomitus Captain

This is the  captain I painted from the Indomitus set. I still need to fix the energy effects on the sword and shield. but pretty happy with him.
 
Amazing model!

The Dark Imperium Challenge!

Since the Indomitus box set was announced, I decided I wanted to try and get the Dark Imperium set painted before the new box, and new edition, was released.

I’d already painted some of the box, in the shape of an Intercessor squad and, I had replaced the two lieutenants with models I preferred (one of them was the official Ultramarines model, soooooo….).

Over the last few weeks and months, I managed to paint the whole box set (well, the marines at any rate). Finishing the last model today, the Ancient!

Below are the images of all the different squads and characters!

Space Marine Heroes – Ultramarine Terminator

Some time ago a good friend of mine gave me a few of the awesome Terminator sculpts from the Space Marine Heroes range. Decided to paint one up!

Love these models, the detail is really really high.

Ghulgoch the Butcher – Blightking of the Wurmspat

I have finished Ghulgoch the Butcher. I just have Fecula to paint up, then my new Warhammer Underworlds warband is ready to go!

Valerian and Aleya

I decided to take a break from Nurgle and Ultramarines and paint up the new Valerian and Aleya miniatures. I really like the books, so was keen to pop a bit of paint on them. I’ve also never painted a Custodian or a Sister of Silence, so thought it was as good a time as any!

I decided to do a little bit of NMM on the eagle on Aleya’s cloak, but since these will be gaming pieces, I just stuck with normal metals for these two.

Lord of Afflictions

I have finished yet another miniature for my Maggotkin, this is a Lord of Afflictions. I am very close to having my base 2000 points completed. Just four Pusgoyle Blightlords to paint up then it’s done. Will need to paint up some daemons to summon though!

Sepsimus – Blight King of the Wurmspat

Pretty much finished the first Blightking bodyguard model from the Wurmspat. I need to add some tufts to the base and some goo on his… err… tail? But he is done.

The Glottkin

The Glottkin is finished.

I have been working on this trio of brothers for a while.  I have tried a few things out on him, mainly special effects and different kinds of blending and shading. He’s been on the painting desk for a long time, but the recent self-isolation guidelines have helped speed my progress up on him!
