I have only a squad of Tactical Marines painted in the colors of the Scythes for the longest time. This was because the fluff gives the picture of a dying Chapter with only very few marines left, fighting to the end, taking as many Tyranids as they can with them before they go out.
But with thanks to the mad Magos Belisarius Cawl, the Primaris Marines have arisen to give new hope to the dying chapter.
I've painted up the Primaris Captain first, to inspire the rest of the Primaris and normal Tactical Marines that I will be painting up. Finally, a fighting battle force of Scythes of the Emperor!
Again fingers crossed. Hope to be able to paint or assemble more Primaris stuff.
Have a great week ahead everyone!

However, I only layer on the Evil Sunz Scarlet after the gold details are painted so that the Khorne Red at the base can still be seen to create some depth and shadows.
For the bright brass or gold, I used a base of Jokaero Orange. Then I mixed Jokaero Orange with Averland Sunset. Then more Averland Sunset to the mix. Then just pure Averland Sunset. The highlights were done using Dorn Yellow mixed with Averland Sunset. Then Dorn Yellow for a final highlight to the raised areas only.
The highlights of the armor was done using Evil Sunz Scarlet with Jokaero Orange. The final highlights and scars on the armor were done using mostly Jokaero Orange with a bit of Evil Sunz Scarlet.
Got the mini mostly painted. Back to the Black Templars and Sylvaneth...I hope..
Have a great week ahead everyone. Keep hobbying, even if it means just painting something for a minute a day!

This weekend was more fruitful and I managed to assemble me 4 Treelords for my Sylvaneth Army. 2 Treelord Ancients and 2 regular Treelords.
I had chosen the Oakenbrow Clan for my Sylvaneth as I really like the contrast of the greens and reds. But I needed a test model. Should have went for a Dryad instead of a Treelord lol!
For the green interior, I used a basecoat of Death World Forest. Then Death World Forest mixed with Elysian Green. I then added Dorn Yellow to the previous mix for successive highlights.
For the bark, I started with Dryad Bark (a most fluffy choice of paint haha) as my base. I washed the model in Nuln Oil and Seraphim Sepia mix (50:50). Then I mixed in some Gorthor Brown to the Dryad Bark as highlights to the edges. The subsequent highlights to the bark were done using pure Gorthor Brown. Then Gorthor Brown with Baneblade Brown.
Hope everyone has had a great weekend!

I got the Malifaux Temple of the Dawn last year after playing an intro game at Ray's previous castle. The legend of Shenlong was born in my mind during that battle which involved a desperate rush to an outhouse in the inner slums of Malifaux where good sanitation can be a rare thing.
But all in all, I am quite happy with the way they turned out. The Monk with the blue watery base was done at beginning of the year as a test model. I ended repainting him to fit the rest, except the base.
Hope to get some games in too!
Have a good weekend, and great week ahead everyone!

I decided to work on my Black Templars again after reading the Fall of Cadia codex. The burst of inspiration from Marshal Amalrich's valiant efforts during the Black Crusade was all I needed.
Marshal Amalrich of the Cruxis Crusade
Below are some standard Tactical Squad/ Crusader Squad marines I am still working on. My earlier Black Templars were all armed with Bolt Pistol and Chainswords. Assault used to be quite feasible a few editions back.
I'll also be planning to paint the Templar cross motif on all the Marines who are wearing their helmets. This is the Cruxis Crusade, or Crusade of the Cross. So this will be their main identifier.
Am painting up enough units for a Battle Demi Company. In the works are also 2 Storm Talons. I had to do some conversion to the cockpit as I lost the plastic canopy cover...sigh..
Well that's all I got for now. Have a great week ahead all!
