Librarian - Sons of Horus - Forgeworld


Hello everyone!

I just finished painting this librarian earlier today so I thought I'd better make a post about it.
This project was actually meant as a side project to the current big one I'm working on at the moment. But since this was way more manageable I suppose I got carried away and finished it....so now I need a new side project :p

The miniature is a limited one from Forgeworld and I only think you can actually buy it at Warhammer World. I ended up converting it slightly as the original had a huge demon cloud coming out of his left hand and I really don't like effects like that on gaming pieces (Another story for display pieces), so I replaced his left arm, give him an axehead from Conversion World and a combi plasma.

Not much else to say, painted using the same techniques as always, so if you want to know more about that, I suggest you find check out the tutorials I made on this subject.







That's it for now! I will probably have another side project finished "soon" or at least before the main project is finished xD

Until then
Chris

PS.
I basically get custom name plates made for all my HQ figures, but I don't have a great name for this one. So if you want to help out and "win" the honour of naming this miniature head over to my Instagram and give your suggestion :)

Javelin Attack Speeder Squadron - Sons of Horus - Forgeworld


Hello everyone

I just finished painting another unit for my Sons of Horus army. This time it's some much needed Fast Attack in the form of some Javelin Speeders. I got them with Lascannons but everything is magnetized, so hopefully, someday I will be able to get my hands on some Missile Launchers for them. I have made 2 sets of arms for the gunners one with Multi Meltas and one with Heavy Bolters.

These were great fun to paint even though it took a long time since my scheme required quite a bit of masking, well over 100 hours used in about 1 month.

Anyway enjoy some pictures :)

Next up I will continue my work on my huge Abaddon bust, you can follow along on my Instagram.

Until next time

Horus Aximand, 'Little Horus' - Sons of Horus


Hello everyone!

Been a while since I posted on the blog since most of my current projects are Works in Progress (Check my Instagram for that). But I did just manage to get this single miniature finished.

It's for a Horus Heresy campaign we are starting up at my local club in a few month's time. The primary requirement was that everyone had to convert and paint a new HQ for their army.

Being a fan of the Sons of Horus lore I knew this was the chance to paint up another Mournival member and one of the primary characters of the XVI Legion, Little Horus Aximand.

The miniature is converted using a lot of different kits, can't really remember them all of the top of my head sadly. Things worth mentioning since I seem to get a lot of questions regarding those are the Sword from ConversionWorld and the Nameplate from Versatile Terrain. If you aren't aware of these companies I highly recommend checking both out as they make some amazing stuff!






That's it for now. I'm currently working on a huge Abaddon bust and some Javelin Land Speeders, so might see the finished speeders soon'ish. The bust is still months away from being finished however xD


Until next time
Chris

Thunderhawk - Sons of Horus - Epic Scale - Forgeworld


Hello everyone
This is my first ever real commission, where i'm not painting something for a friend or person I have actually met. Hopefully he will be happy with the result .

It has been a long time since I painted anything in this scale, but it reminded me of where my more serious painting journey started, 15mm Flames of War tanks. If you want to practice airbrush control these small projects can be a nice way to do that.

If you want to know how I painted these, check out the pdf tutorials I made a while back, used the exact same methods.
