I have had this model built and undercoated ready to be painted since he came out. And I have finally got round to popping a quick lick of paint on him!

I love the model, but I am not sure he has a place in my 9th edition Word Bearers army, so I haven't spent too much time on him.

Argh! Missed this in April! Daddy's home.

 

Haha, well, there is plenty on the way! :D

 

You've been an inspiration, for what feels like over a decade. At least as far back as Warseer at its peak.

 

Amazing as usual.

 

Wow man, high praise that :O Really appreciate it!

I am finally getting round to painting up a new Word Bearers army.  Unlike my previous army, I really wanted to strike a more sinister, darker tone for the army. 

This is the first of many models!

Recently, any Word Bearers I have painted have been characters, and I have blended the dark red and black together. This is fine for characters, however for rank and file troops it is time consuming. And for the entire army it meant there would be inconsistent shades of red across different units. 

To get around this I have mixed together my own dark red for the base colour.

This is a mix of Abaddon Black and Mephiston red.  Knowing I would need a lot of it, I mix them together into one pot. So any unit I paint now will be the exact same colour as the next. 

I am hoping to get the whole army done by next summer. So I foresee a lot a Word Bearers in my future!

Very nice colour choice. Looking good!

Thanks peeps! Glad you like so far :biggrin.:

 

 

These are going to look so sinister and creepy, will there be a WIP thread? Will there be the typically Tzen conversions creeping in or will they be stock?

 

I stopped doing a WIP thread, I just felt like I was double posting and I don't think anyone really wanted essentially the same posts twice :biggrin.:

 

There will be some conversions, but until Dark Angels get a new veterans kit (with swanky robes), there wont be any robed troops. The scale on the new CSM kit is much bigger than the old DA veterans. :(
