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.

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?

A small batch of Sequitors, most of them with the big hammers.

I got more bits to make 4 more Sequitors with the big hammers so my squads are round off to 4 or 5 minimum-sized squads.

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.

Get it? ARMchair?! Yes.

I have completed the Scribe and his handy bookholder. I went for a similar scheme to the box art. The desaturated turquoise for the arms lets the Scribe be the center of the piece and pop.

This was a particularly exciting model to paint because I used my new Scalecolor Acyrlics for the first time. I have the skin tone set and followed the instructions that came with the set. I haven’t used artist tube acrylics in a long time, and it felt great! Definitely different from your average model paints. I think it turned out great.

I looked up medieval ornate lettering to use on the book. I wanted to do what they used to, so I could make the book more interesting. Since the Scribe looks pensive, I left a page unfinished so it looks like he is still working.

Don’t you think he looks a bit like Bruce Willis?

One of the best models in the Kingdom Death range, the King. From what I gather, he is a being made of babies holding each other, with a bunch of arms that act as zippers.

I imagine the attack sequence being babies launched at the survivors, far deadlier than any bunny rabbit, and then he laughs in baby. A great take on the Knights of Ni. Wholesome yet morbid.

I wanted to make sure I had some texture on the cloak to make it look like tanned hide. There are a bit of tonal variations in the browns. Stippling over the entire thing gives it the texture I want.

It looks great! I added dirt, grass tufts, and a pool of blood.

I’ve been radio silent for a while now, and this is why. I’ve been working on smoothing out step lines from these 3D printed board tiles. Now, I am excited to show off the fruits of just over half the labour.

Since these are printed from a filament printer, the layer lines are quite obvious. I used UV curable resin to smooth the steps. Since that’s all done, they are now ready to be painted.

I’m excited to see it all done.
