Almost a whole year away from the World Eaters but with the Pre-Heresy fever hitting the gaming club (each Legion has been picked by a member to build and paint) and my commitment on their forum, it has been sealed like the installation of the Butchers Nails on me.

Military duties, detachments and then finishing off some more of my other hobbies and interests neglected my love of painting.

It has returned and with a WIP post on this bad boy.


I intend to try and complete this before returning to duty at the beginning of February then have the joy to paint the Red Butchers on order as we speak.

Other things are of course the one and only Angron (taking my time on this as it is the centre piece of the Legion) and 9 more Jump Pack Assault Marines.

Update later in the week or early next week. Good to be back.

Further update.

Managed to get all the white done apart World Eater knee pad.



Once I have completed this (later today) then the shoulder pads and assaults cannons can be started.

Thinking ahead though, getting the right amount of battle damage on this sort of model, due to its size. This is were I reached out to this community and ask for help and tips. Battle damage it completely new to me however I have read various threads how to paint this on, but over white. Help is required, please include links to sources as well.

Update hopefully later in the week.

Well,

I started it two weeks ago and learnt a few things along the way;

1) I always seem to choose an army with a difficult paint scheme to pull off, however I find it a challenge to better myself as a painter and hobbyist.

2) Battle damage - watched a few tutorials online, not much I could see and decided to pop into GW for a painting tip. Extremely helpful, allowing me to use a tester model, giving me tips and also improving their knowledge on this scheme.

3) Metals - still the thorn in my life. I can get the brass colouring for the edging, however metallic, i.e. gun barrels still get me. Any tips or advice, would be appreciated very much. I tried to get a darker tone to the edge of the barrel. With all the experience of cleaning gun barrels off an semi assault rifle (UK Military), the carbon from the rounds covers and dulls the metal. Would a weather powder be a better option than a wash?

Anyway enough waffling from me. I will take more pictures of the Contemptor later this week but for now.


Hopefully I have pulled it off?

Over to you now.

Looks pretty damn fine to me, Zero


Can't really comment on the powders myself as I've never used them.
