Hello all!

 

So as my Dark Mechanicum and terrain projects were winding down, I went to start on the next pain in my life, my repurposed Sons of Horus 18th Company.

 

Traitors ftw. These are bunch of converted marines on a relatively low budget, as I'm rich on time to paint them to a nicer standard. The previous armies colour scheme was always being confused for SOH so I figured 'sod it!'

 

This what I've got to get through

So I started with some terminator honour guard to test the scheme (as I use them very little) 

 

gallery_3527_454_72901.jpg

As you can see, I love my weathering, so oils, patches, blood and the rest all are lovely covers for maybe some lacklustre modelling on my part.

 

Also, these guys are really short compared to Justaerin so more justification for only being testers.

With them done, over to Assault marines.

So then onto the big blob, part painted in some cases and not in others.

The other awesome SOH armies made me get a chop on, and do a couple of small squads and some characters. Apologies for the slightly washing out settings on the camera, still learning these.

Apart from the dusty snow bases needing a little wipe-down, these were finished off nicely.

 

20 Tactical marines

Thanks for checking these out all, very much appreciated. Full-base snow can be a bit of a commitment for a whole army, so glad that its come off ok and glad my conversions (that I did before I really had any resin to draw from) look ok.

 

Been chugging through the rest on my shelf of doom, and shoebox dreads needed some love. This guy started as an assault on Black reach dread, and has been painted twice before so wasn't expecting much. He'll keep someone occupied for a turn of shooting anyway :)

After that, shined up an Ironclad too, wish now i'd had a decent helmet, as I'm not a fan of the one thing I really changed!

Finally, I needed a Termie to make my Termie command Squad into a potential 5 man, so I whipped together a regular spare with Abaddons head (I think)

Added some of the remaining filler stuff that I own. So all of these mini's were made and converted before I'd received a massive influx of resin from a friend, hence their ramshackle appearance, and hence why they will be the filler.
 
Rhinos have now been painted a total of three times in three different colours with minimal stripping so they are starting to really show their age.
 
gallery_3527_454_155110.jpg

 

Master of signal, Converted Dark vengeance librarian, and Apothecary have also been through the wringer enough as well

gallery_3527_454_38860.jpg

 

Some more bodies to fill out the gaps. 

gallery_3527_454_58005.jpg

 

And finally finished my last 2 power weapon guys (1 and 5 in this pic) and as these are also coincidentally helm-less, they should form a nice Vet squad/Command squad.

 

Need to work on my brushwork for blending the power weapons up but three foot rule ftw. 

gallery_3527_454_126897.jpg

 

 

And that's the old guard mostly finished. Only 5 plasma gunners to do and then onto the next shelf, the resin shelf!

Lovely work.  First time I have seen the Sons in snow - I like it.    Also I love the variation you have on all the models.

 

More more more....

So we're starting on the resin shelf. Justaerin squad or squads.

gallery_3527_518_21900.jpg

These were an Ebay find that were part painted to a happy enough standard.

gallery_3527_518_385163.jpg

Tried to focus on the blending of the axes, so that they look nice and frosty.
