Default The Son of Horus- Collected Visions

I was thinking about it, and really, it's pretty silly for me to maintain a separate project log for every one of my projects. I like to have several things going at once to keep me sane-- it makes it possible to assemble huge armies if you never really get burned out painting one of them.

Anyway, this is a continuation of the following two threads--

The Pyre: https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...107667&page=12


Heresy-Era Sons of Horus: https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...=117840&page=2

I can also show off my Black Legion refurbishment project-- it's not anything I really felt like posting in a project log before, but I figure I can show the squads as they get cleaned up. I basically didn't play with my Chaos Space Marines for the duration of 5th Edition because I hated that stupid Codex, and my painting skills have improved drastically since I shelved the army. Not that they were ever bad-- they won best painted pretty regularly at events-- I just can do better now.

The final reason I figured I could just start a thread of collected works is that I can also just show random models I've painted in the meantime in here, keep a link to my hobby projects in my signature for easy access, and when the fancy strikes me to start a new project, I don't need to add more clutter making a new thread.

Anyway, here are the last couple things from the last two threads--

From The Sons of Horus project, my first Contemptor and Praetor.

A special thanks to ResinForge for a great deal on the torso and legs that went into the Praetor-- there aren't a lot of bits services out there that offer a good deal on Forge World bits, but he did, and gets my recommendation if you're after individual components.

This is sort of a quick look at my desktop at the moment-- the second contemptor is well on its way, and I have a bunch of Tactical Marines I'm working on. I figure I'll probably run squads of either 10, 12, or 15... I haven't decided yet...so I'm just sort of painting guys with bolters and I'll figure out where they go once I settle on how I want the squads arranged.

This is the last squad I finished for The Pyre-- a Legion Tactical Support Squad for Apocalypse games. I figure nine flamers and a sergeant with a combi-flamer and power sword is very thematic for the army.

I also got a Redeemer to a point where I'd play with it, although I'm scrounging up some assorted Chaos vehicle plates to cover the Imperial iconography up. I'm also planning on going back and cleaning up the highlights. It's another one of the things I've added to the army for Apocalypse games, which I don't play nearly as often as I'd like to.

On a totally unrelated note, I've had the odd urge to paint some Imperial Guard stuff. I've always had a small Guard army... I just never really got it off the ground and onto the tabletop. I don't know why I never showed this vehicle off-- this was sort of my "learn to use an airbrush to do weathering" project. I'm pretty happy with how it came out, considering all the weathering was done with an airbrush and I had no clue what i was doing with it.

So yeah, stay tuned for pretty regular updates from here on out-- I'll probably just post whatever I've been up to in this thread from now on.
