Hey there, another Primarch has rolled off the production line and this times it's Lorgar the progenitor of the Word Bearers legion.
I added a few pins to the cloak so it would be easier to attach and more resistant to damage while in storage or transit.
I decided to build the entire model baring the head and cloak ready for painting because access around the rest of the model was good. I used pins to attach it to the base which I did not glue until after all the base colours were completed.
With the undercoat finished it was time to start laying down the base colours.
I started by airbrushing the base with Vallejo Game Air Earth followed by Bone White then the head in Rotten Flesh.
Next I sprayed the cloak with Scarlet Red again from the Game Air range.
Finally I sprayed the armour in Game Air Steel and the head of the Crozius in Brass.
Soon it was time to switch to a brush and add all of the Citadel base colours starting with Balthasar Gold on all the armour trim and general bling.
I painted all the strips of parchment in Zandri Dust and Ushabti Bone.
I used Khorne Red on the book cover and the binding on the grip of the Crozius.
Finally I added some highlights to the face and dotted the eyes, I wanted a pale complexion so I did not go to over the top on the skin.
Then came the washes, I used the same three part mix of Nuln Oil, Agrax Earthshade and Druchii Violet that I used on my Zone Mortalis tiles over the entire model except the red of the cloak.
I dry-brushed the parchments, head and the base in Terminatus Stone and ended by painting the bevel of the base in Steel Legion Drab.
I am very happy with the finished model, it really has the look of a warrior monk or a crusader knight. I think Horus is up next so it should be fun painting the big man himself though I really can't wait until I get round to Vulkan but I promised myself I would paint them in release order. Why not take a look at the Primarchs that I have already painted via the linked down below and be sure to check back soon.
