The veterans are beginning to look great. I'm not sure if it's the flash that's making the white look a little thick here and there. It's so difficult to try and interpret how peoples eyes see models in a camera, as cameras tend to show so much more and go into so much more detail.

Anyway, it's great to see you posting back. Keep us posted!!
Cheers Kob!

The white is a pain in the arse, still using the old Skull White, which is watered way way down, but still manages to thicken on the model

Thinking of picking up some Ceramite white at some point to see if there is a noticeable difference.

I'm still trying to smack out these last models for this damned 750point list, with the last 2 ASM 90% basecoated and going through the highlighting and details stage. The point of painting up the 5 jump packs is looming...

The new Allies rules in 6th may prompt me to pick up the and put some paint on my old IG models again, as they'd provide a nice Overwatch road hump against my Tyranid enemy.

Thoughts?

Last Wednesday I returned home from a 10 hour slog at the warehouse, looking forward to getting home and cracking open a few beers and watching the NSW Blues go toe to toe against the QLD Maroons in the NRL State of Origin. Instead, as I turned on my PC and turned on the usual Hotmail, Heresy and Facebook, was greeted with the news that a guy I had been mates with through primary school and the best part of 4 of 6 years of high school, had passed away that morning in a motorbike accident. Though I hadn't spoken to him properly in 3 years I had seen him about, and the good lad he was, was always happy to stop and greet you. Suffice to say I was shocked. You really don't expect to come home and find out that a 19 year old bloke you know is dead.

So things have been down around the place the last week and a bit. With the funeral tomorrow I think that painting may be out for the next few days, which is a shame, as I was really hoping to get a couple of games in this weekend. The best made plans...

G'day Heresy, I know it's being awhile since I've updated this, lest with any pictures. I regret to inform you I'll be having a painting hiatus for the next 6 months...

TO GO TRAVEL EUROPE MWHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Despite this I've got about 5 models left of the 750 point left, which had to go without love that last week or so as I've been pretty busy with making preparations for my trip.

If you haven't seen it: https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...d.php?t=113562

Feel free to contact me if you'd like to catch up!

Regards for now but not forever,
Grish

Been super busy but the Red Wolves are not dead. New Codex means a lot of changes to lists. So as of now the Red Wolves have all their models built for a 750 point list awaiting primer.

Contemptor is on the list for painting now, while I try to work out what to do with the rest of the Wolves, as I don't think I can get the same finish on them that I could get from the old paints, with the new ones.

I got a new job a few weeks ago that has vetted me more time off so I have finally been able to begin painting again since getting back to Australia in early March. As such I was able to start painting up the Contemptor early this week.

This is a bit of a WIP on it.



I'm having a lot of fun painting this dread.

In a former life, Venerable Brother Alwin Thanatos was a proud and long serving member of the Red Wolves 5th Company, under the leadership of Sternguard Veteran Sergeant von Ritter. The Sternguard of this unit where tasked with the assistance and protection of the newly assigned Captain of the 5th, Kane Hedström, after the death of his predecessor during the campaign of the 'Defence of Somonor'. Brother Thanatos was the assigned Heavy Weapon Specialist of the unit, often taking a Plasma Cannon into battle, and using it with deadly efficiency. In 450.M41 it is known that the Red Wolves Chapter took part in the 'Loriar Cleansing', the first major campaign for the Chapter since their fateful experience on Somonor. Though reports are hazy at best, it seems a Space Hulk exited the Warp and crashed in an area on Loriar known as the Desolate Waste. It was here that it was revealed that a large mass of Orks had been contained in the hulk. Rumours say that these were Orks touched by some foul evil, turning their skin to the colour of a corpse. At sometime during the Cleansing von Ritter, alongside their Captain, came into contact with the Orks' leader, one that went by the name of 'Warlord-Kaptain Grishnakh'. Combat ensued with the Warlord and his retinue of Nobz, with Hedström and his unit, and during this fight Thanatos sacrificed himself, to protect the Captain. Cleaved almost entirely through from his left shoulder to his hip, Thanatos was just able to fire a shot from his cannon, taking the hand from the Warlod and seriously damaging his face. As the Warlord fell back, Hedström and the remaining members of Sternguard squad von Ritter, cut down the remaining Nobz, and secured the unconscious Thanatos. While the remainder of the Cleansing was taking part, Apothecaries moved to save Thanatos in the infirmary on board the Company's Cruiser. His injuries too severe for his body along to mend, but his will to survive holding him to the edge of life, the decision was made to inter him in a Dreadnought sarcophagus. A Relic Contemptor Dreadnought had being gifted to the Chapter, from the Adeptus Mechanicus on Pintax, after its discovery in the hidden vaults under of of their factories from the Heresy. Having it on hand en route to its delivery to Bloodfall, the decision was made to inter Thanatos into the coveted relic. Thanatos' body would receive the implants to become a Dreadnought with ease, and he was placed inside the suit. The Armoury took his Plasma Cannon he had wielded on Loriar and augmented it to be his weapon in his new body. Within a month of the delicate procedures, Alwin Thanatos strode upon the surface of the Desolate Waste again, to bring death to the Ork horde that had tried to kill him. Thanatos is often visited by Hedström to talk, and thrice over thank him for his sacrifice. Thanatos is also a valued voice of reason in meetings with the Company's leaders, and an avatar of destruction on the battlefield.
Hey guys, just wanted to share some WIP pics of the Contemptor.






In game he will run as a Dreadnought or a Venerable Dreadnought, all depending on what points I have available. As I said before I am having a lot of fun painting this model, especially after having it in baggies for so long just in primer. I love the character of the model that is growing with the more paint I get on him. If he doesn't suffer from new model syndrome on the board I will be pleased.

The burnished gold and the scripture areas are really very nice indeed, i'm loving the look of him so far it's looking great.

Very good sir, and welcome back to the project log :D

Thanks very much Kob. It's good to be painting again with all my bits and pieces.

Another WIP. The gold is all done, and now I am making my way through the highlighting the red areas, after which I will be highlighting the greys and finishing off with the plasma cannon coils.





More soon I do hope!

After a month of painting on days off or before and after work I have finished Venerable Dreadnought Brother Alwin Thanatos.








I must say that this is an amazing model to make. It was a bit fiddly to assemble, but fun at the same time. Afterwards, it was exciting to move across its surface finding all it's details, rivets, shields and scrolls.

Can't wait to get it out on the battlefield.

More to come eventually.
