I'm working on a Pre-Heresy themes World Eater army.

Not yet sure what Codex I want to use - a choice between Blood Angels, Chaos Space Marines or Codex Marines. Since the Marine Codex may be due before GT, I'm a bit miffed at potential changes..

Notably I'd like lashings of Rending, Option for Assault marines without jump packs, Furious Charge, Dual-CC Dreadnoughts.

First up is Kharn. I took this model:

I've added Kharn's helmet mius the 'lapes' on his head. Also, a chain axe, pistol holster replacing the book on his right thigh and an interchangeable decapitated head for right hand. It looks like he's pointing when empty, or I can switch in a choice of heads depending on my opponent ^^

Here he is constructed:

Conversions and paint are both looking wonderful. How is the decapitated head removeable? nifty option if you can swap in diff. heads according to your opponent.

Nice looking army so far.
Very dpictive of WE pre heresy

BE could be a good option, allowing for the beserkers to be .. wow i forget their name. The marines who have fallen to the red thrist, though the name eludes me. ugh!

Thanks everyone.
AbyssRaven - Death Company. They're certainly a suitable choice for the brutal gladiators. I started a veteran group for such:
cyphersfallen - I used the plastic barrels and marine shoulder pads. Lots of cuttting and flattening to get the right curve.

I'm also working on a pretty little Forge World Dread - very pleased at how the white is turning out on this chap:

I hate painting white!

:p

Here is one!
I think, I know what you mean...
:p
Youre doing a good job. I really like the overall look of these. The kneepads of the rightmost dude are great! What is that? Greens? What parts?

Your take on Kharn belongs to the coolest I have seen.

Keep it up!

amazing stuff could we get more shots of kharn?
also if this is preheresy you might want to scratch off the chaos star...pointy things on the dreads legs.

Whitehorn

I wanted to keep some spiky bits - it's not necessarily chaos - heck look at the World Eater symbol, it has big spiky teeth :)

I've done some more work on the Dread but I'm not happy with blue shoulders. I'll post some up later and see if anyone has suggestions.

The knee pads are from the Kroot sprue - I have a massive Kroot army, so plenty of those!

I'll try post up some more of Kharn too - his cape is just white at the moment. Not easy plotting a WE symbol on it.

that is the best pre-heresy Kharn ever!!! seriously good work there man. i don't mean to be a jerk, but how is that dread doing? it was a great idea to 'regress" the FW model to a pre-heresy one, and i rather want to see how it's going.

Francis29

is Kharn going to count as Kharn the Betrayer or a company captain (or whatever they're called)

on a different note i completely agree about hatred of painting white - use foundation paint as a basecoat is my advice

Whitehorn
06-06-2008, 16:37
The joy of proxy, I can use him as whatever army I fancy using on the day, be it CSM, BA or SM :)

Sadly 2 CC weapons on my dread is not legal in all 3.

Approached painting this guy using a white undercoat and washes.. love it!

Wow, I've always thought of that model as really ugly, but you made it look really good! you do good work, man.

Whitehorn
15-06-2008, 19:50
Thank you. I gave him a new axe and backpack, so he looks a bit less ugly :)

Started on a gladiator with same tactic

that looks great! If you don't mind me asking, what exactly is a gladiator in the context of the World Eaters Legion?

Clone-Trooper
27-06-2008, 03:27
Probably a sarge or company champion .

Mewy
27-06-2008, 07:23
Aren't the World Eater gladiators the legion members with the berserker implant? Because the phrase "berserker gladiators" strongly rings a bell with me.

It sure seems like that other approach to painting white works great for you. =) Awsome models anyways! Mind if I ask what you washed the model with?

tagsta

tell me the recipe on those washes for the white!!
cheers tagsta

1: White undercoat and then 1 layer of Badab Black wash.

http://www.fulgrim.com/minis/we/wwtut/01.jpg

2: A light, thorough dry brushing of skull white.

http://www.fulgrim.com/minis/we/wwtut/02.jpg

3: Paint the other colour(s) - I used foundation Mordian Blue.

http://www.fulgrim.com/minis/we/wwtut/03.jpg

4: I applied a glaze of black to the metal areas and a blue wash (asurmen) to the blue areas.

http://www.fulgrim.com/minis/we/wwtut/04.jpg

Whitehorn
30-06-2008, 12:27
5: Tin bits and/or Boltgun metal was applied to the metal areas

http://www.fulgrim.com/minis/we/wwtut/05.jpg

6: Re-washed the metal areas and studs with Badab black.

http://www.fulgrim.com/minis/we/wwtut/06.jpg

7: Added a layer of blue - a 1:1 mix of regal blue and mordian blue.
Also highlighted the white areas with a thin skull white.

http://www.fulgrim.com/minis/we/wwtut/07.jpg

Painted misc areas - eyes, bags, handle, etc.

Whitehorn

I have 2 Rhinos WIP, a Whirlwind and Land Raider already to be painted.

Want to buy a Fellblade...

Not sure about Angron yet. If my sculpting goes ok, I may try scratch build him.

Looking good so far, one of the better pre-heresy World Eaters i've seen around. As for Gladiators, if you use the BA dex then you're gonna need something to use as Death Company.

Whitehorn
30-06-2008, 16:24
Aye, that's my plan if I use that codex, but the new marines look tasty!

I absolutely love Kharn. I also like the addition of axes on the older era models it adds loads to the pre-heresy feel. Keep up the good work.
