Hey big Z, welcome back!

It has been far too long since the Sons of Heracles or the Marines Malevolent made themselves known on Heresy's boards.

Thanks for the warm welcome Chaps!!

Not so much as an update but what the Sons of Heracles Army looks like at the mo. Some of the marines need finishing but they are hidden at the back.












Will start painting again soon and that includes more Marines Malevolent and a kill team of Exorcists.
Till then!!

I always feel its risky doing a DIY chapter. There's a lot of potential for them to be poorly defined and executed. However you've done a great job on these guys. The painting is good and you've developed a strong And consistent visual style that really makes them stand out. Well done.

What Asamodai said. Really nice to see the chapter all laid out like this. I should probably do something similar!

As simple as it is, I really like the consistency of the Grecian helms. I also like that there is variation in how the helms are treated, crested, non-crested, bronze, partially bronze, white, partially white, etc. I also really like the models where the face mask has all the edges in-lined with black. If the whole model were like that it would look terrible, but as it is that added visual tension draws my eye right to the faces.

Do the different masks represent different ranks or honors, sergeants, veterans, etc.?

Thanks for the comments!!

Kreuger,the different helmet markings/Crests represent the 5 different Clans/Countries on their Homeworld.
The First Company can also personalize their helmets but as long as there is white as well.
I am still working on fluff for the Sons of Heracles,got some ideas,one which could cause some debate as to their origins.
