Cheers The eyes took a couple of trial and errors before I got them to where I liked them, but they certainly look better than my old CSM haha.

Aye, can't wait to get home so I can bring them out. Sadly, there's still so much in the works until I have a proper army, and I feel that something like this needs to be all or nothing.

Done, let me know if that's an acceptable naming convention.

'Never Trust a Wizard' might make for a poor model name, but may also improve your chances of making 'Deny the Witch' rolls. The second marine from your first squad has a pretty bad-ass running pose...
The acronym by itself I think would work. Name changed of the marine in question!

Oy... shit... I haven't written in ages haha. I have been toying around with the idea, I'll see if I can crank something out for next month's HOES, which of course means I'll have to tailor the theme to my best interests, because I'm not above cheating

Awesome job!
Glad you like them! At first I'd been debating between a Care Bear based heresy army, but figured war-torn and nasty as hell would be the way to go

Update Time!

It's taken a couple of days longer than I'd meant, but here is the 2nd Cataphracti of Squad Triarii.




I hope to get the next 3 done before I have to pack my stuff up in a couple of weeks, just to keep myself at (what has been up til now) a rather breakneck pace of painting for the past 3 months. Hell, 20 tacticals, 3 HQs, 3 contemptors, and 7 termies is a TON faster than I normally am, though once I get home from deployment it'll probably resume normal pacing. Next up, Heavy Flamer cataphract (Heavy Flamer courtesy of the good ole bitsandkits store, figured I'd give him a shoutout).

As kind of an idea as to what all I have left to work on (in my possession, this is no where near the end of the list):
-Deimos Predator - Executioner
-Deimos Predator - Magnamelta
-Spartan Assault Tank (all tanks I'll be painting with an airbrush - er, learning how to paint with an airbrush once I buy one - when I get home)
-2x Warhound counts-as (the Dreamforge Leviathins) - Legio Mortis themed (probably)
-Relic Contemptor with Heavy Conversion Beamer and CCW
-5x Cataphracts
-1x Justaerin with Plasma Blaster (actually will need to buy this one, probably piece meal from a bits store since I only need 1 more and getting the other 4 seems like a waste)
-4x apothecaries (the FW kit)
-5x Centurions/Honour Guard (the guys with the spartan helmets, haven't decided how to kit them out yet)
-40+ Mk II, III, and IV Marines, unsure what weapons loadouts, other than 9 more tacticals to include another vox operator and sergeant, I have been sorely tempted to make either the 10x flamer legion support squad or some 10x missile launcher units (because that would be fucking disgusting). Long ways to go before I get there though...
-20x "Imperial Guard" Dreamforge Stormtrooper kits to accompany the Expeditionary fleet - will be red, black, and gold armoured
-3x "Imperial Guard" heavy weapons sections (more Dreamforge) to accompany the Expeditionary fleet will be red, black, and gold armoured
-16x Imperial Guard (with Pig Iron heads) to accompany the Expeditionary fleet, undecided colour scheme

Enough of my babbling, though, hope you enjoy!

Well it's been quite a while since an update (hell... I think almost the longest since I've started the PLOG!) and I've definitely got to get cracking to make sure I finish the last 2 in this batch of Triarii...

I present the Heavy Flamer... #1...






Tomorrow I'll start cracking on the squad leader.

Hope you enjoy!

Well shit, looks like my reorganizing on photobucket fucked all my photos up... I'll work through sorting through those to get them back up. Baaaalls...

Anyways, triarii #4 today, the squad sergeant with a power sword. Blood still drying...




In the meantime, I'll be fixing the links... hope you enjoy!

Jesus Christ that is fucking awesome!!! Only one flaw to my eyes and that is the blood drop on the sword as it is waaaaay too big. I would have soaked some of that up with a cloth to make it a bit more in scale with the model.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

May as well be honest.

love everything bar the bases... if they were say, ice/snow, I'd love them even more. But there's just something about 'gore' I dislike.

Other than that, the dirty, gritty look of the armour is amazing.

Many thanks Dealing with the water effect has been a pain in the ass, sometimes I have to sit there and watch the shit dry (which sadly takes hours) and keep brushing it back to where I want it to go. I got lazy with this one lol, though I think the dried version looks slightly less ridiculous than when it was still wet.

Aye, I think the bases are either great or too much... while I personally love them, I'm currently looking at getting the new Tablescapes from Secret Weapon, and unless they come out with a bone fields one, it won't match shit, sadly.

Finished up the final Triarii (for now, the squad will number 10 when I'm actually complete) before I had to pack up all my painting stuff to send home. Here he be:




And some photos of the group:







Then, as I mentioned, I had to put all the models into a box, and now I've got jack and shit to do for the next month lol.



This PLOG won't have anything new for (probably) about two months as I get ready to redeploy, get back to the US, then go on vacation to Cancun, but I'll regularly check in to see if anyone's posted so I can respond. So, expect new material in mid-June, and until then, thank you all for being interested in my Sons of Horus!

Enjoy your vacation!

I'll be waiting to see how this whole project turns out once you're back at it man. Great work so far.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Finally back home, and should probably be getting back my painting supplies within a week or so, have most of my minis on hand, and now I've got to start hunting down a place that sells airbrushes...
