Hi

I have been working on heresy armies for a while and I would like to share some progress here. My project are 3 armies from Betrayal book, Emperorīs Children, Sons of Horus and World Eaters (and bit of artillery borrowed from IW

When I was cleaning my shelves this afternoon, I realized that I have gathered quite a lot of power armour guys lately, so I made this fun diorama of my friends Dark Angels and Guard defending trenches against huge wave of my traitor marines, here are some photos, hope you like it

Ah, yes, here we are! You are doing 3 Heresy Armies, yourself, buying hundreds of pounds of stuff from Forge World???!!!?!? Well done! 5 stars! The epic scale of the project alone is fantastic. I am liking the Heresy Armies, still working on them? I particularly like the EC and SoH.

Thanks!

Iīm still working on it, EC are almost finished, I just need to get custom shoulder pads for them, SoH and World Eaters still need lot of work to do

As a next step Iīm thinking about LR spartan as a realy reliable transport option

The EC look great, the ones in the photos of the Heresy book look wrong compared to the more deeper purple form the Index Astartes (which is the correct and proper one imho).

I've been thinking of starting a Heresy army myself, and seeing this makes me want to do it morel. The SoH look great so far, and the WE look like they will be touch with all the white bit look good too.

Spartan? Expensive. Nice model though.

You are right, I have painted EC before the Betrayal book was out, so I used Index Astartes as my source :)

While I like what Forge World are doing, I do not like the tone of purple on their beautifully illustrated drawings of Emperor's Children marines, nor the odd mix of white, gold and purple on their painted examples. To me the true pre-heresy Emperor's Children colours are the sort of 'Warlock Purple' from Index Astartes, as opposed to the 'Liche Purple' that FW are doing.

I'm surprised more people haven't posted on this log. I like the OSL your doing on your models. The thumbnails don't do them justice, any chance of bigger photographs with more focus on models in the pic? Not trying to criticize your photography or anything, but the models aren't taking up enough of the pictures :)
