Hello,

 

Instead of making a big thread with all my work I will spread each one to their own category.

 

The project to go along with my AL is a mid heresy era World Eaters company, based on the image below.

 

WE_Assault_Legionary.png

 

I took some notes for the scheme, maybe someone finds them useful when he starts a similar mid heresy force.

 

■ Blue elements are deteriorating, fading away and ignored.

 

■ Red is applied crudely as their bloodlust grows.

 

■ Original blue color can be seen under the red paint on the shoulder pads.

 

■ Traditional Legion markings are ignored.

 

■ Crude kill tallies are carved on the armor or written with blood.

 

 

In contrast to my Alpha Legion' cohesive look, this group of berzerkers with be painted with varying amounts of blood red.

 

Fluff wise the project is based on the audio drama Khârn: The Eightfold Path by Anthony Reynolds. The World Eaters are losing control as the butcher's nails take hold, a whole Legion descending into madness.

Thoughts?

 

C & C welcome.

I dig it - Could use a little (more) blood spatter perhaps but I like where you're going with it!

Thanks! Maybe you are right, too much blood can obscure the details tho. I'm not sure yet. Less is more!

 

I'll have to finish a few more and put them next to each other to make the final conclusion.

Perfection!
The faded blue is just right, and it peeking out on the shoulder pads is lovely.
Very nice job!

I concur with the above fellas comments - cool test model but needs more gore and blood splatter. He looks like he's just washed all the blood off his armour.

I am impressed with the red over the blue scheme on the shoulder pads. Neat.

Absolutely beautiful, but I will have to echo the others.
Some more blood would take the model from a 9 to a solid 10!
It can be tricky tho, too much blood and it will end up obscuring the model itself.

I would suggest using the toothbrush method for adding the blood spatter to the armour, plus get yourself some clear red for the wet look.

Already done the toothbrush thingy but its focused on the right side, it's not visible in the photo. I got tamiya clear red but I prefer Blood for the Blood god.

Looking good!

I'd suggest a brighter, but very heavily chipped blue :)

Everybody is asking for more blood! Khorne is strong around here! :D

 

I upgraded the test model, made some changes based on feedback.

I was not happy with the middle area being white so I followed the FW scheme of blue side plates and buckle.

 

Yeah, there is also more blood.

 

C & C welcome.
