First of all thank you for all the subscribers and followers on this post. I promise I will have an update soon. Just been a mad couple of weeks with work!

On the final reply I can see your point in your post and in defence I did say it was a work in progress, still a couple more layers to apply to the edging. Weathering powders as well another learning curve to work on. This legion and painting style is something that is going to challenge me as a painter and gamer!

The more info I read on the World Eaters legion the more I find that are not like their brother legions in taking pride in their armour. They seem like a flattish white before heading the way of the blood god.

I am trying to achieve a closeness to what FW World Eaters have produced with my own little take on it

My concern is that the cost of FW kits that people including FW would want to sponge on colours and then chip paint them. Each to their own of course.

Please bear with me on this and I think I might just crack it. The next step would be to able to reproduce it over and over again.

Using the FW painting guide,
Step 1 - Abaddon Black Undercoat
Step 2 - Basecoat Kantor Blue
Step 3 - Highlight with Teclis Blue with a little Lahmain Medium on the raised areas. I did then a small wash of Nuln Oil to take it down a little notch.

Please find the link below for the painting guide.

I tend to disagree with the amount spent on the models from FW that you would want to sponge the armour or models. Personal opinion of course.

Thank you for the support and comments so far. Fully appreciate them.

Cool, thanks.

Didn't say this before, but good going so far. Looking forward to seeing more

DeathJester921, thank you and here is a little teaser of what I have been working on I between my Dark Eldar and reading Betrayer.

ImageUploadedByTapatalk1357766962.556054.jpg

This is very much a WIP with still about 50% to go. Metal base and highlights, Jump-pack, Chain-Axe, another arm and shoulder pad are in base coat colours as well.

Weathering wise. I will be using a tub of Secret Weapon Pigment - Green Earth.
I could of gone for a grey weathering but due to the lightness of the armour it did not show up as well.

I am actually enjoying painting the Pre-Heresy World Eaters. It is on a different scale to my Dark Eldar.

Now back to it.

Nice to see a khorne fella around!! I like the idea behind your project and the "teaser" marine looks very nice, i like how you nailed the dirty white look and the dirt/rust in the recesses and the rivets. I think white is one of the most difficult colors to paint. But hey, blood slpatters look great on it ;)

Blood splatter on a World Eater, would never of heard of it.

After a weekend of partying, gaming with the Dark Eldar and then a birthday party, I have managed a little bit more on the first one.

I have the bolt pistol, chain axe and base to tackle. Hope to get a little more time on it tomorrow.

I know it is not really but it feels like ages since I last picked up a paint brush.

Update on the first World Eater.

I do like the way it has come out. I was thinking blood splatter but it is something I am yet to try and test.

Weathering powder, again not too much on the model apart from the obvious parts.

Now for the next 4 to work on.

Comments always welcome.

Looks good! The colours are really nice, and the weathering is done just right, not too OTT.

Look forward to seeing more of these!
