Hi all, welcome to my project thread. This is mainly going to be on my Brethren project with a few interludes of my Emperors Children progress. I must give a large thanks and hats off to Eetion :eek:k: for giving me the ideas I've used for my Brethern figs. Thank you.
The fluff fro the Brethren can be found here
This first one was the tester I used for the colour scheme.



This is going to be there commander. Only done the base coats at this stage with no highlighting or shadeing yet



Comments and ideas are welcome

These are the first and only squad I've done so far.









This has my first attempt at moulding a hood. Might look better if for the next lot I don't use a beaky head.

Nice work on the green stuff there Plug and a good striking colour scheme.

One suggestion, drill out the muzzles of the guns i reckon it always makes them look better than hust painting black spots on them.

Look forward to seeing more Plug.

sweeeeet. Cloaked CSM always look great, especially if you can freehand some chaos symbols. I need to start drilling holes in my guns also..... low effort/ great results.

update

Hi all, latest update as I've done a bit on my Brethren. I thought I'd give moulding a tabbard a go for my sorc. Didn't come out to bad. Finished my Lord Commander as well and included a pic of the vet sgt from my second squad.

Here is my sorc before I started playing with g.s


and this is the finished model



My completed Lord Commander



My second squad vet sgt


Hopefully will get some painted soon along with some more of my slaanesh termes

Hi all, sorry for the delay but here is the latest update. I've managed to get half the 1st squad finished. The bits for my chosen should be arriving soon so I will be able to start on them soon. Not sure what I'm going to do to make them different from the normal marines so any ideas are welcome







Hopefully the second half won't take so long. Enjoy

Nice strong colours and painting on the squad. My complaint? The bases.

Its really easy to paint bases- pva some textured sand you can buy from GW onto the base, drybrush grey or brown, apply some static grass and it looks great and takes about 2 minutes. Your miniatures will look 10x better

These guys look real nice, real sharp!

May i ask what did you use for the crystal stone of hellish Warp-power in the Sorc's left hand?

Firstly, can I say nice job! The look great. I especially like the commander. Lovely work on the sword.

Secondly:

The bits for my chosen should be arriving soon so I will be able to start on them soon. Not sure what I'm going to do to make them different from the normal marines so any ideas are welcome
I was wondering this for mine, as I'm basing all my models off bezerkers. I am going to give them small shields, to mark them out. Maybe this would work? Could make them really small, like a SM combat shield, so it attaches to the back of the hand?

If not, what about tropy spikes on the pack packs (not sure if this is the look you want though, maybe too chaosy)?

Or maybe, all bear heads, with the hoods folded back, leaving the head uncovered?

Hope this helps

Keep up the good work!

Update

Hi all, managed to get some work done recently.
First up done a few testers for the squad I'm going to have in Alpha Legion colors. Still got to finish the trims and bolters on one of them. Turned out to be harder than I thought it would be.





Also managed to finish building my first chosen squad. This mini is my fave.




Next up was a rino which I didn't want to be plain black so the flames were added



And last but not least is my Lord, Alpheus Volcanus. A big thanks to Eetion for the idea with the backpack. Not sure how I'm going to paint him yet.
