I painted Sicarius a few months back, but I never bothered putting up pictures. Of course, when I do bother taking pictures, some jackass grabs it and asks what it is, and breaks the banner off... which is why the second picture is missing the back banner. I took it at an angle where the head covers the chip on the backpack from where the banner got snapped off-- it's easy enough to reglue, but grr. The entire model was done with Reaper Master Series triads, which requires a lot of mixing. You can probably do something similar with GW paint, as long as you thin it down a lot... if you did it with GW paint, it'd be roughly a 75/25 mix of Regal and Ultramarines blue for the basecoat, a 50/50 Regal and Ultramarines Blue highlight worked up to pure Ultramarines blue, then a 75/25 mix of Ultramarines and Ice Blue.

Not too shabby at all. Why is the second pic so odd looking though?

i do love the way people who dont understand the hobby do that. u just finish the last bit of highlighting...u put the kettle on satisfied with your work...u come back and some idiots got their fingers all over it. or as my girlfriend does...doesnt understand tht glue takes time to set...picks things up...says shes likes it and is going to keep it...breaks things then doesnt understand y i shout at her lol. great work tho. i love this figure and i prefer it to the newer edition. does anyone know where i can get it from? the only place i can find it is ebay and its looking like its gunna set me back £40. which if neccessary i will spend. if anyone knows anywhere where i can get it cheaper this would b very appreachiated

nicely done mini love the work on the face, great amount of detail. question though, where did you get the mini. I only started playing over the last year and i've never seen one that looks like that. Is it an old model?

I like it mate the blue is very nicely done and the face is excellent my only critisism is that the shading could do to be a little more defined like by using a darker recess colour like regal blue which would really give him a lot more definition. good work mate, JD

Well painted, when I redo mine I will pop him up too. He is so much better than the latest model, even though this pose is weird.

I hate people who damage models. I couldn't count how many times my idiot brother has stood on this guy. And once I beat him, so he got really angry and swept all my models off the board, broke half of them too. Never played him again. Did I mention the one he managed to knock out of my display cabinet onto the floor?

I believe its the Sicarius for the Medusa V campaign a little while ago. He was elected to lead the chapters sent there, so I'm pretty sure he got a model in all that.
