Hey all, been working on my Emperors Children army for a little bit now, but until the past week when my pc blew up, found I'd not been making much progress.

Starting to actually see things coming along on the modelling front, so thought that I'd share a bit of my progress so far. Sorry for the blurry photo's but my camera is a little crappy. Hoping to borrow Infael's once he gets back off holiday, so expect some better pictures soon.

Current progress on the test model for the colour scheme, not sure why I used a possesed as they're a bit different to the way I'd paint a standard marine.

Properly thumbnailed, better photo's and more coming when I get some more done, a camera that's halfway decent and a pc which works again :)

Cheers for the comments guys.

Lucius - my comment regarding the possesed as a test model was partly due to the amount of trim and the skull for a head - the normal CSM should be pretty close to standard emperors children except with a bone trim.

Anyways - time for an update, again apologies for the massive pictures, once I get my pc back I'll do some proper thumbnails!


Pretty much finished the test model, I'm thinking the pink might need a thin wash to blend the pinks together, as will some of the black bits. Might do another level of highlighting on the bone as well.

Current state of my lord and sorceror - still not sure about the head for the lord, will decide soon - small amount of conversion work still needs to be done

That's all for now - any comments or suggestions welcome :)

Love the Staff for the Sorceror, I may just have to Borrow that idea :)

I like the colors you are using, makes good use of a pink without being too bright, and lots of flesh seems more to the Slaanesh way of going into battle.

I agree with the bone trim, it needs something more. Maybe further highlights would be the thing.

I'm back off hols now so I will give Critta a better camera and lighting effects to do some justice to these fantastic models, as in RL, they are!

I better get sticking my broken-ass Nurgle back together from their close encounter with a basketball and post some pics now then...

Cool - cheers dude, most appreciative!

As the possesed wasn't the best example of the colour scheme I'm going for, I've been having a bit of a play with the B&C traitor marine painter this morning to give and idea of the scheme I'm going for!



Hopefully get a chance to take some more photos tonight of the a few more conversions I've done over the weekend and get on with some painting over the next couple of days!

Cheers for all the comments and suggestions guys - I'll probably try giving the pink another wash, and bring out some more highlighting on the bone trim - I want to ideally get it towards a more ivory colour, so most likely just do another level of brighter highlights.

Right, after a while doing other bits and pieces of painting, I finally got round to finishing another unit from my army.

From taking these photo's I've seen a load of bits I need to go back and sort out, as well as some unfinished parts, but it gives an idea :)

Wow that looks horrible...as in OMG I couldn't look at it on the battlefield. It has a sensual soft colour with the pink, but stands out so much its garish. Congrats on the colour combination that makes kind of like it but kind of hate it too, very Slanesh like.
