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.

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.

Finishing off this commission with Commander Shadowsun and a Cadre Fireblade.

Shadowsun follows the army colour scheme, activating her camouflage. The Fireblade looks very leader-like.

These are the rest of the drones in the commission. A couple drones for the Ghostkeel, a couple shield drones for Commander Shadowsun, and a bunch of other mostly shield drones. All that’s left is Commander Shadowsun and a Fireblade.

Brand new to me, Fire Warrior Breachers. A 9-man unit and a couple Hammerhead turrets. I’m almost done a trio of Rail Rifle Pathfinders, then I might do the Fireblade or Commander Shadowsun.

The first two Stealthsuits complete. The camo is white, grey, and blue for the snow. The actual armour is a purple/grey scheme with some bits picked out in blue or red for the reference to the og shiny armour colours. I’d like to think this alternate armour is like a special forces colour scheme.

Also, as per the natural order, I have both the active camo and armour colours showing on the model. Like they’re in the middle of turn their stealth on.
