Howdy, folks! Today I want to show you some of the painting I have done on a recent Forge World order I made. First off, here is what I ordered: 1 Mk IV Command, 2 Mk II Armour Sets, 6 Mk IV Armour Sets, 2 Mk IV upgrade sets, and 2 Dark Angel transfer sheets (these are freaking awesome by the way). I have assembled and primed all of the models and I have decided to make two complete squads, and use the other models as test models for Heresy era Legions I want to collect in the future. In the case of the loyalist Legions I will use them as part of the 40k armies I already have. So lets take a look at the works in progress for what I have been working on!
Sons of Horus
The other squad as well as the command models are being painted as Emperor's Children. Since I already had a model almost completed I figured I should make something to accompany it. I may change that converted model to a veteran rather than a Centurion, but I haven't decided yet. I have opted for a darker, more imperial looking purple for their armour. I also wanted them to have more gold and decoration on their armour, even on individual Legionaries. The Emperor's Children had a reputation for ornate armour and a penchant for spectacle and pomp. I want them to look imperious and regal.
Stay tuned for more 30k goodness as I get these finished and paint up some of my other models! Happy gaming!
