Word Bearers Host WIP and Yellow is the new Red!!!

Post by afioretti » Thu Apr 02, 2015 9:18 am

Hello community. I'm happy to have joined you, and I'm even more happy to show you my work in progress army!

Image

After reading Horus Heresy novels, and the Word Bearers Omnibus, I was sold, and decided to begin, slowly but firmly, my own Host. I wanted them in their loyalist grey colour, which I found more interesting than the usual dark red (too much red in WH40K to my taste).

Up to now I have

- 1 squad of 8 tactical marines plus one additional marine if I ever want to swap a tactical marine with a standard bearer. Sergeant is the one with the black helmet. They still need their pauldron decals.

Image

- Half squad of raptors fast attack marines. Final squad will be of eight members, one with a melta, another one with a flamer. The sergeant, the one with the golden helmet, has a flamer as well, which I've payed to be crispy AP3.

Image

- One dreadnought with autocannon and power fist. Still need to finish it painting and basing.

Image

- My Coryphaus in terminator armour with flamer and powerfist converted from a scibor figurine to make it less chaos-sy. And my sorceror a bit too devoted to Slaanesh for a Word Bearers' taste.

Image

Image

So that is all up to now. I think that next thing I'm getting is a second tactical marines squad and to complete the raptors. I hope you like it, I'd appreciate your opinions.

I love what you are showing us here. It's very well painted and I love the sobriety of the colors. Are you playing them as loyalists or as CSMs? Playing the Thousand Sons, I love the similar "orderly" chaos look of your units if you are playing them as CSMs. I love the usual spiky Chaos Marines too, but a more disciplined kind of Chaos is also interesting. Ah and congratulation for your terminator conversion. I love it very much.

At the very beginning I was aiming to get me forgeworld and play it as a loyalist/traitor 30k army; but there is nobody that plays 30k around me, and I will finally play them as normal Chaos Marines but keeping the word bearers spirit: squads of 8 men, possessed marines, a dark apostle, and such.

Final touches on my existing models: scribble some text on armor and finishing bases. The big one displayed is for the dreadnought.

I failed horribly at applying decals on pauldrons, so I took them off, and I have failed horribly again trying to freehand some serrated sun symbols. I'll wait to be able to print my own decals and have the correct products to apply them correctly.

Here you have the raptor squad with the base, black pauldrons and metal items painted. The administratum gray has been darkened with nunl oil wash, and the bronze has been washed in sepia.

Image

Lastly I highlight the models and paint the small details.

Image

Here you have the raptor squad ready to pounce on some heathens!!!

New tactical squad! Painted for the deathmatch brawl

I have noticed that the golden trims gives them a look of iron warriors. I'm reverting them to dark silver, and the second tactical squad os more grey-silver than the first one.

Image

Here you have a detail of the five tactical marines and the sergeant, with the black helmet. They still need the decals to be applied, I need to find some decal application fluid. The serrated sun symbols, however, are freehanded.

Image

And lastly the heavy weapons marines: From left to right you see the plasma rifle holders, the ammuniton bearer, the melta gun operator and a techmarine with a rocket launcher.

I really like your bases! They really help to break the ,,grey in grey"-look of your painting scheme.

I'm loving how the Dark Apostle is coming along. STill need to base it and finish some details. Not easy to paint black armour...

I was not so sure to go with the black cape, I was wondering if I could go with some vivid colour to get some contrast, but at the end I'm quite satisfied with the black on black and the silver threading.

Hello everyone!

Now that the big brawl contest is open for pic submission, I'm showing you my finished Dark Apostle.

The model I began with was a chaos lord form the Dark Vengeance box that my local shop was so nice to sell me apart from the demonstration box. It's a pity that the models aren't sold separatedly.

http://www.games-workshop.com/Dark-Vengeance-EN

Word Bearers Dark Apostles wear the black (Chaos is coming), and at a moment I thought that I could paint a cape in a vivid colour to make contrast; I have chosen to paint the cloack black as well and give it some freehand colchisian star maps, and I have the feeling that I have chosen well. The model is sober, yet inspiring.

At the back you can also see that there is some chaos-y tentacle that protudes from the backpack. I went to paint it in slaanesh colours.

Image

The metal parts are painted with a base of Balthasar gold (wich is copper colour) and then some washes of rungfang steel to get this appearance of unclean silver alloy.

The book has been made from plasticard and green stuff. Bounded in human skin and scribbled in human blood, of course. This symbolisms are important.

The power maul has been given a black and leadbelcher base, some runefang steel highlights and finally some washings in blue.

Image

The face and the inside of the cape are scribbled in colchisian. A pity that the photograph doesn't do it justice. The base is a resine base I bought from microartstudio.com , given some base of red and yellow and the tiles are painted in Dark Reaper blue with highlights in Celesta Grey.

Image

And finally a picture of my Dark Apostle with his band of Merry Men
