Default Zero Effects - Heresy World Eaters Legion

Most of you are aware that I have another blog on here with my Dark Eldar, however I need a new challenge (do not worry they will be ever expanding), which brings me to this lovely project.

First over 5 years ago, Black Library released what is considered a good series of books on the Horus Heresy. I suffer from dyslexia and one of the things my assessment suggested was to improve my reading skills and spelling by focusing on a series of books that interest me and go from there. Ever since this decision my appetite has grown over the years wanting to know more of this huge event that takes place in own hobby history.

Sometime in September 2012, Forge World decided to go along the path of the Horus Heresy. I grabbed the book and Angron as soon as it was physically possible (UK GAMES DAY 2012) and I have to say the book and Angron are a true work of art.

So why the World Eater Legion? There is something about this Legion, the fear that just the mention of them words brings to hostile/rebel worlds. It kind of links in with the Dark Eldar and the fear and striking ability they show. However what differs most is the no matter on the numbers that have been killed they become even deadlier.

I did have to wait a couple of months for a replacement part to arrive from Forge World as I was missing one of the marines being butchered to death.




I have primed the two World Eaters from the Angron display base and yesterday I began work on the first one.






Now the thing I am trying to figure out, be it from the Betrayal Book, FW website or other blogs, is it a crisp clean white or is there is it more of a slightly pale white.

I will also attempt the blood splatter and battle damage especially on the assault marines. Yes they are waiting for me with shoulder pads and chain axes , this is after my slow and steady work the Primarch Angron

Further update during the week.

Comments always welcome.

Looking good ZE

Edit: In referance to your white question, I would chose either pale white with bright white highlights or dirty white, as I find just white left along (even with washes) Looks incredibly flat and dull.

Have yet to start painting my Angron because I don't have the right color paints yet. What blue did you use for the shoulder pads on the World Eater?

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.

I do not feel pressure, just kill on site and then ask the questions later!

Thank Lethiathan, you have an interest thread coming along too, I am a fan.
Yeah was currently working on Ceramite White with Lahmain Medium mix. It seems to of come out well and might just leave it as it is now. See pictures above and see if you agree?

I have started looking at the gold armour first and seeing what will be a good platform. So far I have gone on a Balthasar Gold base colour and then testing out either 1 wash of Nuln Oil and/or a wash or 2 of Reikland Fleshshade.

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.
ZE out

ZE, I find that to be brutally honest the white on the guy you've painted is a little flat, I'd personality paint chip it. I would sponge chip as it comes out well, and the random patterns make it more realistic.if you want a really good white I'd recommend investing in vallejo burnt umber pigment and AK interactive pigment fixer. Mix the 2 into a smooth wash and apply to the wash, then tone the middle areas back with white and it makes w great faded white look. I combine it with a wash in recesses again (i use p3 ink for this (brown)) to keep the recesses dirty. I find this makes the model look nicely grimey but test on an old model because its a permanent effect
