Those sculpted bits of trim are looking great.

Haven't had time to do any painting, but recently I've built another 10 of my traitor wolf berzerkers to fill out the 20-man unit required for the Fist of Khorne formation.

A little taste of things to come...

Looks good man. Are you doing any sculpting or detailing on the more wolfy bits to show more corruption?

I think some subtle little distorted decorations or added trim would take sell the look even before the paint goes on.

Not this time, I think I'm leaving them as-is. There's a mix in the unit of wolf/CSM parts like shoulder pads, pistols, knives and such. Not a *perfect* match between the warp talon legs and the SW kit, but I'm happy with it.

Too much work, in other words . I'm saving that energy for the Skullcrushers.

Finally finished priming and such. A few mold lines snuck through, but I'm just gonna roll with it.

I settled on a color scheme for these guys, thinking of calling them the "Sons of Cerberus" or something "of Cerberus," at any rate. Gotta have that Cerberus.

Black armor with copper trim, using GW Screaming Bell. Really love this color, and haven't had a chance to use it much until now. Probably because I never really paint anything, eh?







About half the unit has these frost axes, the other half is armed with dual chainswords. Not counting the 2 plasma pistol dudes and the icon bearer or the champ.

Planning to use some other metallic colors. Metallic black for some of the details, brass for certain other things. Dark grey for the joints.

I approve. That's almost exactly how my iron warriors are painted and it's a good scheme.

Painted most of the details and washed everything, leaving the black armor for last. I'm really liking this color scheme:







I think I want to paint the axe blade a vibrant red. Just not quite sure how to pull it off. Will have to do a little searching for the right recipe/technique.

Looking good so far. For the red axe I would recommend watching the "How to paint Archaon" video. His sword, cloak and the creatures tail all have a nice reddish glow, although they may be a bit orangey, but you could dial that back a bit easily enough.

Any thoughts on the skin tone yet? I think a pale unhealthy colour would look really good.
