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.

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.

More resin models. This time, they are from Forgeworld. The Ork Big Trakks. More Evil Sunz Scheme because red is fastest, and it just looks so good.

When building FW, you can’t help but compare them to other companies that release similar resin kits. Due to the poor instructions, this kit definitely falls short from alternative Ork kits. Not to say it doesn’t look good, the FW Big Trakk looks awesome.
