Workbench Progress - Horus Heresy Emperor's Children Praetor

Morning all, another week another hobby update and today it’s the Emperor’s Children Praetor who’s on show.  Only the Contemptor remains from this legion and then I will have to start showing you my progress with the Iron hands.  I have been a little distracted this last week trying to finish a Skyhammer Annihilation Force formation for a tournament this coming weekend so I will drop a post showing that off very soon.

So let's get on to the Praetor, I have made a special effort to model each of the Praetors slightly differently so their legion is easily identifiable.  This time I ordered a single Phoenix Terminator helmet and spear from eBay to add some legion flavour, the helmet did not even nearly fit so I had to drill out enough space until it did.  I magnetised the wrists like I usually do so I can switch weapon options but for now I have included a Volkite Charger, Paragon Blade and Phoenix Spear.







That's all for now, like I said do please check back soon if you want to see the Skyhammer pictures and the finished Emperor's Children Contemptor Dreadnoght in all it's glory.  If you are new here please take a look at my previous Emperor's Children posts by following the links below.

Workbench Progress - Horus Heresy Emperor's Children Cataphractii Terminators

Hey there, I’m back again with another update on my Horus Heresy project and today I am showing off the Emperor’s Children Cataphractii Terminators.  

I am now working my butt off trying the get a Skyhammer Annihilation Force painted before the end of the month, I will then get on and finish the Iron Hands and bring this Heresy project to a close.  I will post some pictures of the Skyhammer formation as soon as it’s finished but in the meantime let me just remind you of the colours that I used on the Emperor’s Children.

The Emperor's Children are all air-brushed using Vallejo's Game Air Hexed Lichen (Purple) and then  with a few thinned down layers of Xereus Purple.  The gold I used on the trim and face-plates was Retributor Armour.  The red details were painted using a base of Mephiston Red highlighted with Evil Sunz Scarlet and Lugganath Orange. The bear metal details were painted with Leadbelcher and then the entire of each model is given a wash of Agrax Earthshade.  Finally the blood on the close combat weapons was done using the citadel technical paint Blood for the Blood God.

Right lets take a look at the pictures.

Workbench Progress - Horus Heresy Emperor's Children Legion Tactical Squads

Hello there,

I hope you all had a great Xmas and I welcome you to 2016, the arrival of a new year means new hobby projects, I already have the next six months mapped out.

I have now finished all of the Emperor's Children models so you can expect to see them being shown off here for the next three weeks.  I have now started working on the Iron Hands the 4th and final of my legions who I predict will be finished by early February.
