After some time in radio silence, I present the first batch of the next commission. This new commission will have Horus Heresy White Scars, Sons of Horus, Mechanicum, and Orks.

This first batch is two Jump Chaplains, a Psyker from an Emperor’s Champion model, and an Ork boss from Grimskull Miniatures. There are alternative parts like the chain glaives and jump packs that were 3D printed or resin cast.

The bases for the Space Marines is a mud/trenchworks theme so water effects are added to the mud and a lot of weathering to the armour. I think it puts them into the scene very nicely. The glowing fist and sword of the Emperor’s Champion will hopefully convey that he is a psyker. He even has a book.

The last of the commission is complete 6 Ork specialists from Artel W and a kit bashed Mechanicum hero.

The Weirdboy and Bigmek are Deathskull schemed, lots of weathering. The Bigmek gets some soot and oil stains too.

The Painboy is quite the character carrying around a “patient”. I thought I would make it seem like the amputee lot quite a lot of blood so I made his skin pale and desaturated compared to the other Orks.

A bit of kitbashing was needed for the Mechanicum hero. He was awarded titan armour for his actions, hence the hodgepodge colours.

Almost done this commission. Here is a batch of 15 Secutarii Hopilites and a Sergeant. Largely the same scheme as prior Mechanicus but with a few bits of yellow sprinkled in. The Sergeant is one for the Secutarii in a previous commission, he is a bit different with more silvers used in the armour and a green glow on the weapon.

Only a converted Mechanicum mini and 6 Orks left to do and we will move onto World Eaters!

Finished the Ursarax for this batch. 9 minis, 6 of them with a pair of claws and 3 of the with a pair of fists. They all have blood on them, fresh from the fight. I made the ones with fists have a heavier splatter effect with pounding things to mulch might be a bit messier than chopping.

A great pick on the yellow scheme. The blood effects are easy to see and are very striking.

Group shots. As always, I love the forgeworld models. Lots of detail and cool looking. I have high hopes for Shapeways and the minis they produce. Good detail on the 3d prints.

The Domitar was the highlight for sure. Successfully making conversions like that always makes me feel good.

The Domitar is ready to smash more Orks. Not much left of the one underfoot after the pew-pew and the squish-squish.
