Default Prehersy Emperor's Children (with a little of my night lords too)

Hey guys, I've decided to start painting up my preheresy emperor's children for 30k fun. I already have my night lords pretty much done for our heresy campaign my group is running but, have always wanted to have a decked out III legion. To me their fall was one of the hardest for this once proud legion of warriors who pushed themselves to be perfect in all forms of war, to slip into the most decadent and twisted perversion of what a space marine legion represented was horrifying.

So here is the start of my guys: the color scheme I am rolling with.

I'll keep an eye on this. The Emperors Children are my favourite of the pre-heresy Traitor Legions. Good start.

Nice work on the models. nice flat and even coats. i would say try and tidy up the lines and details a bit but other than that its a really impressive job.

Thanks for your words and advice, it is much appreciated. I still do need to base and highlight the buggers but I definately need to smooth the detail down.

I have some modeling grass that I am going to apply over some muddy texture paint or use the new gw dirt texture paint.
