Even though I painted a unit for my Word Bearers this weekend, I think I'm going to go for my heresy era Emperors children in this thread.

So start with Chief Apothecary Fabius (Legion Centurion with Primus Medicae upgrade)



I've removed his backpack and changed it as people suggested it was dull and not fitting

I'm going to try and get a second project done for this double month.

I've already completed a small squad of renegades for October, next up is a Heldrake.

I'm not sure yet if I want to slant my paint scheme towards a legion or not. I have a good deal of old chaos renegades that are in a dark tarnished bronze color scheme. I want to push the scheme a bit and use a lot of tarnish and verdigris covering the wings and fuselage. My goal with the tarnish and verdigris is to burnish up the leading edges of the wings, head, body, etc. to simultaneously show the friction and wear along with the age and corruption of the daemon engine.

And here are my first verdigris tests. I used a mix of Lahmian medium, ice blue, skull white, and 2nd ed emerald green. This mostly 1 coat of my verdigris mix and then a following re-highlight.

Rear

I'm open to thoughts, criticism, and input!

Finished Fabius at the weekend, some may have seen this when I put a pic on Twitter.

Sorry about the blurry pic weather has been rather dark by the time I get back from work in the evening



Can't decide how to base him yet though

Some nice looking models in this months thread.

I will be closing this thread on Monday 3rd December, so you have less than a week to get things completed and posted.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

Nooooo this month has gone way too fast, technically i've finished two units this month but one was already base painted and the other is yet another indie character, i'm an ork on a mission now to see if i can paint 1 ork deffdredd and 12 more boys before the deadline. Should be doable if i pace myself properly.

Will Grimzag get the challenge met in time? wil work once again steal his lifeforce and make him too sleepy to paint? Can you even fit a whole squig up your nose? find out next week.

It is all about priority. Let painting steal your life force and make you sleepy at work instead.
