The next character from the Horus Heresy range is Anacharis Scoria. A Magos of the Mechanicus who is half man, half spider, and half scorpion, but mostly machine.

The yellow scheme is from a previous commission’s unit, the Ursarax. Though I went for old rusty metals this time. Without thumbs, Scoria finds it difficult to properly maintain his chassis. The little flesh he still has on his arms and face is pale and greyed. It makes his face look like it’s a mask.

Scoria looks very delicate, so I magnetized the legs and tail, and pinned him to the base without gluing. That should make transportation safer.

The next model complete for the commission is an Ork Killbursta tank from Forgeworld. Lots of weathering all over the vehicle. It’s mostly silver paint on the top half and then lots of mud and dirt near the tracks. I made sure to put lots of dirt on the ram and make it look like the dirt is flying up the slope.

I forgot to post these here. But they ended up on my other social media accounts.

They are a couple of Xiphon fighters in White Scars colours. I masked off most of the hull in order to paint the canopy and get the sharp, straight lines for the red, since I used an airbrush for most of the painting.

All the dirt weathering I added were all in streaks. I tried to make it in one direction to give the feeling of the forward movement the Xiphons would be doing.

One of the fighters has a thin white stripe on the front triangle. Hopefully that will make it easier to tell which fighter is which.

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 model is now done. The mighty Bloodthirster looks like he is ready to smash his way across the field. I went for a colour scheme that is similar to the box art. So, fiery skin, black and brass armour, and demonic flesh looking axe blades. Such a great model. A vast improvement from the old Bloodthirster.

Group Pics to come.

The last of the World Eaters are now done. The tank is magnetized to be a Rhino or a Predator of either variant. I also painted a bit of the inside. The marine is a Captain with a power sword. The commission came with one less backpack than needed, so I scrounged around my bits box and found one.

All that’s left is the Bloodthirster.

They have their backpacks and shoulder pads on now, so these guys are officially complete. 4 Plasma gunners and a bunch of definitely-not-Primaris Assault Marines. I made sure to add the blood effects to the shoulder pads as appropriate.

Another batch done. Red Butchers, plasma gunners, and more assault marines. The shoulder pads and backpacks are up next.

I added a lot more blood to the Terminators in comparison to the assault marines. Maybe too much? They’re elite units who are butchery enthusiasts, so I thought they should have the gore to match.

Finished a batch of World Eaters. A venerable Dreadnought with several weapon options and a handful of infantry. Their missing backpacks and shoulder pads are going to be done separately. They’re a dark blue and the armour is white, so I don’t want to mess up the white by painting the bits together.
