Thanks  Sol, that storm host silver is very bright silver so a nice layer of clear paint over it goes a long way.

Blood for the blood god as the shoulder pad colour looks bloody (hurr hurr) amazing. Might borrow that idea!

Not gonna lie Garro 100% going to steal your base design, use AoS plastic bases then paint grey drybrush light grey wash in purple.

Those bases are an amazing fit for the theme after all. Maybe add a few daemon and astartes bitz to represent the traitorous forces falling by the thousands at the hand of the glorious Custodes?

Its going to be something special, This project Ill be stepping out of my comfort zone and trying new techniques I've either never been good at or never tried before.

 

Tonight was slow going waiting for some supplies to arrive before I work on the Knights more so to fill my time I painted my Shield Captains Cape.

And a test model for Zephon of Baal.

That was my plan as well, though still debating a Webway (with purple) or Prospero (without purple) look. No good options for the large oval bases for the vehicles though. There is large base detail kit, but no matching large bases to put the detail on. Currently thinking I'll just use the pavement look stolen from Scar's Custodes thread with some AoS large base detail bits. There are some medium AoS oval bases that I can use for my Pallas grav-attacks (a little too small, but near enough & bases aren't really relevant for vehicles in the rules anyway, so no one is likely to cry foul), so this is just for my Caladius and Coronus (and probably the Sister's flying dong ship when I eventually get one). I'll see once I get a base built up, but that will probably push me in the Prospero rather than Webway look.

I really like the pose of your spear dread. Where is the base from?
