Looking good so far, can't wait to see some more of this done. Ever consider a Fellblade?

I did think about a Fellblade. The thing is, even though I'm building the army for Apocalypse, we rarely play Apocalypse locally (and that's something I'm working on changing). Focusing mostly on infantry lets me reform the same models into different squads to use Codex: Space Wolves or Codex: Chaos Space Marines (not sure which is a better fit at this point in terms of representing a Legion army) for pickup games. A Fellblade would, sadly, sit on the shelf most of the time. I bought a Baneblade when Apocalypse came out, and I think I've gotten to play with it maybe four times total. Which is sad, because the Fellblade is freakin' awesome.

The other reason I'm waiting on vehicles, just in general, is because Forge World hasn't released Sons of Horus doors yet! They're sculpted, they're ready to go... they're in the catalog even... but they're not out yet, which is sad.

Contemptor Dreadnought with Tullis Satrael. I actually have finished around 30 Legionnaires, but I then decided to go back and redo their shoulder pads-- I decided I liked black shoulder pads better than sea green, even on the rank and file ones, so I need to go repaint the squad markings and whatnot. So...check back later for those.


I may go back and add more chipping and weathering to the dreadnought... especially on the shoulders. I also need to go back and redo the lettering, I think. It's always interesting to look at models enlarged in a photograph-- you can really see the flaws then. The lettering looks okay in person but it can definitely be better.

nice work mate! I think they look great and I completely agree on the black shoulder pads. Provides some good contrast to the sea green.

First Tactical Squad ready to go. I need to go back and add more highlights to the power fist, it seems... the fingers aren't very defined in the picture...

Very nice legion army coming together.

Have you seen on the FW website they brought out painting guides for the 4 legions so far?

Just a thought.

I will be watching this thread closely as I am building up slowly a World Eaters legion.
