Excellent work so far sir. I'll defiantly be referring to this tutorial next time I need to do a librarian.

That was kind of the problem, once I had finished it I couldn't resist painting it! I need to come up with something similar for all my miniatures so I get them done any time soon!

Glad you liked it, I tried to make it as clear as possible, I'm always surprised by how hard it is to take good tutorial pictures.

Again amazing, I can't say it enough.
IlikeBMXbikes on Warseer is epic! I'm always astound by the amount of miniatures he can't paint in such a short time to such a high standard. And he just keeps on doing it, like he never gets tired!

I'm glad I could push you into painting again, always nice to inspire others!
Thanks!

I'm pretty sure that had I not started this log I would either have:
1. Painted a lot of miniatures to a subpar standard
2. Stopped painting a long time ago
All in all I owe much of what I've learned to the community on heresy!

Glad you like it, hopefully you can make good use of the tutorial when you need it

More to come soon™

Great job there the libby is coming up nicely. I have read today new GK codex you should probably consider making another libby for your army I just love my farseer even more now :D

I want to add that your work inspired me enough to take a step back to my SM army and re-paint them I will be posting some test models shots soon.
Keep it up

Then again GKs are geard towards killing Psykers as well, damned if you do damned if you don't I guess.

Apparently I'm steering a lot of people towards SMs which really wasn't my intent, I just like to inspire people to have fun painting any army - not just marines :D

----

The choir started their hymn. Voices joined together to form a unison. Joined by the song of my brethren I descended deeper into a meditative trance, searching for the beacon they had told us to look for, a signal of hope that would be lit when the time had come. This is a ritual we do every passing, and we shall continue in such a manner until we can be rejoined with those whom we lost.

Demonic voices and whispers try to overwhelm my mind as birds warble in the distance. The daemons are trying to lure me into their web, dilute my strength and connection to my body. But I can hear the phoenixes, my kindred, calling my spirit, they ask me to walk amongst them and we can search together. I touch their feathers and they envelop me in their wings, the purest of flames burning away the darkness of the warp, keeping the daemons at bay. For now. Without the phoenixes the search would truly have been in vain, for what hides in this realm would surely consume the strongest of us, mere mortals. As my spiritual form slowly walks in this erratic existence of nothing and all I try to hone in on subtle differences in the voices around me. Sometimes I think I hear a women whispering amongst the daemons. Her voice is profoundly human and the few words I hear are not promises of ecstasy beyond belief such as those that comes from the others...

'I have been told that we where driven from our home. The different nomadic tribes of the planet of origin had grown into a totally different society compared to the olden times. The darkness of technological advances destroyed much of what we had but at the same time saved us from each other and from those whom came from above to bring us harm, to take our people away. We where forced to leave, to flee. As the planet shrunk in size before my eyes and the fires of phoenixes ravaged the planet I knew I was leaving something important behind, somehow this was not an end but rather a beginning of something much more important...'

I can't help feel there's a connection to someone out there, someone important, if the birds could speak I think they would tell me whom I'm looking for. The prophecies held by the Exemplars are cryptic at best and they speak about this beacon. Therefore we continue to search. I can only hope my mind will hold up long enough for me not to, at best, crumble into dust or, worse, fall deep into the maw of madness.


Epistolary Librarian Flavius, of the Claw, Mystic and Shaman of the Brethren of the Phoenix, member of the sect of the Fallen Star:

Pieces of notice:
  • the Claw symbol on the right hand shin armour.
  • the 4 on the left hand shin armour.
  • the star symbol next to the chapter symbol on the left shoulder-pad.
  • the "water" effect on the Force Weapon / Power weapon.
  • the engine glow (after a long debate back and forth I believe I have settled for yellow for this army).
  • Pink psychic powers - because that's the real and only way to say "BURN HERETIC!! BURN!!" with style
  • the reinforced chain wrapped handle on the Force weapon - reinforced for extra blocking ability and weight adjustment while flying.

----

Fun facts:
  • 43 colours where used in the making of this miniature (I'm not joking - I counted the pots), some of them where mixed in order to create more tones and hints and glazes.
  • The Forgeworld jump pack gave me a lot of headache when it started to show flaws in the resin as I painted (damn those near invisible mould lines )
  • This is the first miniatures I've used gold on in a large amount since the last time I painted warhammer a couple of years ago - it turned out a lot better this time around.
  • This is the first time ever I tried glow effects - be gentle with me.
  • This is the first single infantry miniature that I've probably spent over 20 hours making (construction --> painting).
  • This is the first miniature for this army equipped with a jump pack that I've finished.

C&C welcomed as always!

----

Till next time!
