WIP: Predator and Mephiston

Making more progress on my Lamenters.  Started doing details on a Baal Predator, though there is a long way to go.

The other model is my custom Mephiston.  Not sure what his name or fluff is going to be yet, but played with him the other day and he was a blast to play.  He’s made up out of bits from the command squad box, and sanguinary guard.  Not pictured here is a nice banner that goes over his head.

Completed Reclusiarch/Chaplain

So as a reward for getting the first Assault Squad painted up, I decided to work on a HQ.  I recently got a nice lot of 40k miniatures at the local thrift store and included in it was a nice metal Chaplain in Terminator Armor.  I can use him in my army either as a  Chaplain or Reclusiarch depending on the other choices in the army.  This was an absolute blast to paint and the detail is amazing while not being overwhelming.  Still need to touch up with some wash in a few places, but overall I’m very happy with how it turned out.

TH/SS Terminators WIP

I’ve been working on the Terminators and am really enjoying painting these guys up.  I’ve decided on making the helmets red for these guys, and maybe even expanding that out to the rest of the army.  I just love the look.  I might just keep it for Sergeants and terminators, etc.  Still have a bunch of detail work and to finish the hammers up.  The bases as well need to be changed to match the Assault squad.  I’m also working on a terminator Reclusiarch, to take a break from yellow.

First Assault squad completed

Took me a long time to figure out how I wanted to paint these.  I didn’t like the bright yellows so I muted it down with an earthier color.  Also changed the color on the bases a couple of times.  Not really happy still.  I might go back and redo those to get the to where I’m happy.
