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.

Alpharius enters the fray. This Forgeworld model comes with a scenic base depicting the Primarch kill a Space Marine. In this case, a Space Wolf.

I went for largely box art colours. The green metal accents and silver trim make for a unique colour scheme amongst the legions. The choice was to make the Space Marine an Imperial Fist or Space Wolf. I went with Space Wolf to keep the colours around Alpharius muted so the focus can stay on the Primarch.

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.

I am calling this half of the Soulscream bridge done! I’ve been working on this for a while. There was some planning and diagram making to get me the general shape.

It all started with a couple of laser cut MDF pieces for the frame and some styrene sheets cut for the foundation. The rest is Milliput and Greenstuff built up for the bricks and motifs. The pieces of Azyr floor is from the Large Base details set and the embellishments for old bits from the Empire and stuff from the Stormcast Eternals. I made sure to add some brick details on the underside so it wouldn’t be so smooth.

All I need to do it paint it fittingly. I will be going for magic forces moving pieces together, building the bridge while the spell is being cast.

Been working on this for a while. I cut down on the 4x painting a lot and kept each step to under a minute. Still ended up being over 20mins XD. I will keep trying to expand on my explanations so there isn’t too much dead air.

Eventually, I want a 4K camcorder or at least an updated HD camcorder. The one I have is over 10 years old! I dream of a day where the colours are true and my details crisp.

What will be next?

I have done a handful more of Stormcast Eternals.

A pair of crew for the ballista is done. I like having helmetless Stormcast for my ranged units. I have built the Castigators (soon to be converted Vanguard-Raptors) to have some kind of Empire heads. The bits for them are coming soon and am super excited to see what they will look like.

There are 2 more Sequitors done to complete the 5-man unit. Group pics soon.

The Knight-Incantor is my first leader-type Stormcast. She may go between being an army leader and squad leader. I made sure to keep the magic glow in the eyes and staff.

The resin bases continue to look great. The leaves and moss make them pop a bit and tie each piece together. There’s still a good 20 more models, or so, so once they’re all done, they will be a great sight.

The first of my Stormcast Eternals are now done. Custom bases, helmets, motifs, and hammerhead. With all those fancy bits, I came up with a name for my Stormhost too, Ulric’s Retribution.

The story is my Stormcast are the men and women who fought in the fall of Middenheim and the Old World, true heroes one and all. They were reborn on the anvil with the unique quirk of still worshiping Ulric over Sigmar. They were put together in a Stormhost called Ulric’s Retribution and now fight with the Middenheim Historical Association (Cities of Sigmar Freeguild, name still WIP).

I made several unique helmets and bases that I will be using on all my Stormcast. I also made a hammer head that I will be using to replace all the 2-handed hammers that will be available. I’m most happy with that one, it looks great.

The colour scheme is an alternate version of the Hallowed Knights scheme, adding a bit more black, gold, and off-white to get it closer to my original Middenheim colour scheme.

The group pics are here.

Models are on the tiles for scale. It’s a big board, right? In one corner, the King of Babies. In the other corner, the big weapons of humanity. The Scribe as the ref.

They compete to see who is worthy of bathing in a pool of blood.
