Emerald Fists Basilisk WIP 1

Working on my basilisk, here you can see before and after the sponging.  On darker models I used to paint highlighting on the sponge marking to add depth but since these tanks are cream/white it never really added much for the effort needed.  So that's why I just sponge and call it a day.

Emerald Fists Wave 8 - Support

More toys for my Emerald Fists.  Some heavy fire power from a basilisk and a sicaran plus some drop pods to fly dreadnoughts around in.

Lucius pods are huge!  Also a pain to assemble  I was quite scared the doors would break off (they're really heavy) so the hinges were cut off and I replaced them with coat hanger for strength.

Khorne Cultists - Complete

I finished off my cultists which were really fun to paint for a change from marines.  Some skin tones and stuff which I'm not usually doing.  I also used Blood for the Blood God paint after they were varnished to add blood effect.  I tried the 'flick' technique to add spray and it didn't work at all (wouldn't flick at all).  Maybe with a toothbrush?  Anyway I just stuck to blood streaks.  Quite a bit of work for 6 point models but at least there are only 8 haha.

Khorne Cultists - WIP

Everyone needs some devotees to sacrifice to the blood god!  I picked up 8 of these guys and swapped a few of the weapons to make them not so obviously the same sculpts.

Khorne Bikes - WIP 2

Finished off the bikes, still no riders though.  I based them since the riders will be painted separately anyway.  Here's a few different angles too; hard to tell in the top picture because of how I arranged them, but half slant one way and half the other, but not too much.

Khorne Bikes - WIP

I had a few bikes on sprue and four that had been made for my Night Hawks so I re-purposed them for the blood god!  I added magnets to four of them so I can affix special weapons and added bits from my bits box to make each one unique.  I don't have riders yet (they're in the mail) but those will be read to contrast with the black armour of the bikes.

Khorne Maulerfiend - Complete

 Now with more skulls!  I affixed my skull base to the maulerfiend and here we go!  I really like the look and contrast.  Onward to more!

Skulls! - Mass Painting Bases

My khorne skull bases came in from Micro Art studios.  I have enough for my vision of the army so I painted them all up at once.  Some air brushing of bone, gryphon wash followed by wych drybrush and skull white and we're done.

[Emerald Fists] Assault Marines Complete

Assault marines finished!  This is my second Emerald Fists assault squad which puts me up to 80% finished my 3rd company.  Everything is on magnets so I can swap weapons and add jump packs.  These guys will likely be run as 5 man squads in drop pods so I needed 4 flamers.

[Emerald Fists] Assault Marines WIP 4

Finished aside from the eyes.  Also need to drill out and pin the bases.  Having a box of pre-done bases is handy but my supply is running low.  I'll have to paint up another batch.
