Sons of Horus - 5 Justaerin Finished and an Army Progress Shot.

Yew, got a new squad done for the SoH!

This is the first time I have done an airbrushed black with the stylised highlights as seen in the WIP photos preceding this post and I'm quite happy with the results. Previously I was a little lost to do with black aside from some line highlights and weathering pigments, it lightens the models up a bit but I really like the effect.

925pts down, Reavers are up next, hopefully a week or two as I am working in the bush at the moment and they were the only dudes I had airbrushed and ready for detailing. I need another Troop choice and some transports painted ASAP so they won't be too far behind.

Sons of Horus - Justaerin WIP

This guy was hard to photograph with the camera on my phone but it's coming together pretty well I think. I'm really pleased with how the black/green/grey airbrushed 'black' has come out under the detail, the flat clear tones the lightest points down quite a bit too.

Sons of Horus - Customised/Themed Leviathan Siege Dread Showcase

Hey y'all,

Pretty stoked with this, I spent a good 5 hours on it this afternoon to try and match the aesthetic of the Forge World Legion Contemptor and the Reavers/Justaerin. I trimmed down square styrene rod for the studs, made a few mirror coins from GS, added some skulls on chain and Forge World brass etch. I accidentally covered up what I found out later were the frag assault launchers with skulls, Will Hayes (hell of a designer!) filled me in on that after I had already done the work with a scalpel and some superglue.. I thought they were bloody headlights as I had seen a few guys paint them up with OSL.

Anyway, I feel that it's really come together and with some paint, will look like it was meant to be this way, it was pointed out too by Will that it looks like he's on a rollerskate with the wrecked Rapier, haha.. I can't unsee it now, but I still like the base, adds a lot of character. Which legion should I paint up the Rapier for? I don't specifically know who the SoH were fighting mid-heresy other than crushing worlds into compliance in the outer.

Cheers
Jack/Redscorps

500pts Sons of Horus for Zone Mortalis Done!

My last photos of the Apothecary and Chaplain were a little over exposed but I'll leave them up anyway as they still look ok, this is a lot more akin to how they actually look in real life (on my monitor at least), dark and gritty. Pretty happy with how it's all coming along. I was 5 days late on my monthly pledge for the global escalation league but I am stoked with the achievement considering how much I work each week and I don't think I have ever managed to paint that much in a month before.

Sons of Horus Showcase, Chaplain and Apothecary Completed

I've signed up to 'The Scouring of þungur Metallikos' Global heresy escalation league on Facebook, my pledge for June was to start off the Sons of Horus with 500pts of Marines and a Contemptor Mortis. I've got a 10 man tac squad to finish off this week and get my 3 Zone Mortalis games in before the end of the month but it's definitely going to get done.

My list is:
Legion Centurion - Chaplain
*Artificer Armour, Crozius (Axe), Refractor Field, Melta Bombs

Legion Apothecary

Contemptor Mortis Dreadnought
*Two Kheres Pattern Assaultcannons

Legion Tactical Squad (10)
*Sergeant: Power Sword, Melta Bombs

Sons of Horus Contemptor Mortis Showcase

Finished my first dude for the new SoH army, a dual Kheres wielding Contemptor Mortis! I have spent the last few months working far too much and just concentrated on trying to get a lot of stuff built so I could stat gaming, unfortunately I have to miss out on the first local tournament here but that meant I could slow down a bit and shoot for more than a 3 colour minimum on each model.

Hive Fleet Behemoth Tyrannofex Showcase

This will be the last one for a while from the spawning ponds. I'm going elbow deep into the Horus Heresy from now until I have a solid 2.5k completed for them as the local scene is really picking up and the game system is a lot stronger than 40k.

Shelving this project is kinda good actually, I feel like the last two models I have painted for the nids have been a massive drag and taken me far too long for the outcome.

That said, I'm petty happy with this bloke and the Malanthrope completed before it, the whole force looks pretty shit hot on the table with the pearl blue over red and bases done up.

I'm not convinced that anyone is actually checking in, but I'll be back with some assembled Sons of Horus marines and stuff in a couple weeks/month.
