The aim of this thread is to collect all the Heresy era plogs I have scattered throughout time and space into one cohesive space. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been commissioned to create several Astartes forces and I hope to collect all 18 with accompanying characters and auxiliary forces. Instead of creating a new plog for each individual piece I will have this one thread and keep it updated with WIP, conversion and completed images.

- But how to go about displaying such a vast array of miniatures neatly in one thread? I’ve decided to have an index (above) and have a couple of empty slots below and hyperlink individual posts of note to the above. I will also provide links to my blogsite (I do so not to spam the forum: my photobucket accounts tend to attract a lot of attention expending my bandwidth allocation with alarming speed). Over the coming days I will be updating this page with my previous work and adding all relevant links.

The Architects of Betrayal.

Erebus and Kor Phaeron

It seemed apt tot start the blog with the two instigators of the treachery.

I think this release has been a little overshadowed by the release of Ferrus Manus at Games Day. Personally, I was looking forward to painting these miniatures more. Whereas Ferrus represents the fulfillment of the martial/ ideological ideal of humanity as envisaged by the Emperor, Erebus and especially Kor Phaeron, represent humanities frailty. Frailty, greed, lust and decrepitude are much more interesting subjects than perfection (fans of Fulgrim may disagree).

Does anyone else think that Kor Phaeron looks like Prince Phillip? I'd love to know the kind of visual ques Edgar Skormorowski used to create this model. Although you cannot see this from the photos, the underside of the gauntlets have Kor Phaeron's bare hands hard wired into the suit. You can also see the characters back legs from behind poking out from this false terminator suit. I glued the head a little father back in the suit to reinforce the unease of the character. Curiously, the white dwarf preview in white dwarf seems to be a different head from the one put into general release. I wonder if there is a story there?

Well, what shall we have for the second installment? How about the first of the fallen primarchs?

This was a beautiful model to paint. The final photos for the Iron Hands Legion Primarch, Ferrus Manus. This is my first Primarch project and I'm relieved to have one under my belt. I own Angron and Fulgrim but indecision has forced me to put off the projects to later dates. Still wrapped up in the enthusiasm of Games Day I broke the seal and put primer to resin before I could let doubts settle.

I've written up a reflection on the piece for the blog. I hope you enjoy the pictures and any feedback would be warmly received (unless your a dick about it...)

The Phoenician Fulgrim, Primarch of the Emperor's Children, The Perfect Son.

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a495/Lilloser2014/DSCF6522_zps2e0768bb.jpg (http://s1280.photobucket.com/user/Lilloser2014/media/DSCF6522_zps2e0768bb.jpg.html)

“I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active - not more happy - nor more wise, than he was 60,000 years ago.”

Intimations on Perfection, unpublished treatise. Author Unknown.

Fulgrim's character is one of intense darkness and light. On the one hand he is the most idealistic (although Lorgar may disagree) of the Emperor's sons, striving for the perfection he believes humanity is capable of. His legion bore that responsibility until its disintegration, where each soldier chose what his personal ideal of perfection would be rather than the prescribed divinity of the Emperor.

I wanted to reflect this duality in the painting and modeling of the miniature. I painted Frulgrim in pristine armour, untroubled by the dirt and battle around him. He is above such things. The gold is a good foil to the purple armour. I decicded to paint the inside of Fulgrims cloak cream to further highlight the rich purple of the Emperor's Chidlren Livery. I changed Fulgrim's position of the base, putting him in a more central position. I couldn't imagine Fulgrim being content on the periphery of any scene, he dominates the centre stage.

Fantastic work!

30-11-2013, 04:04
I gotta say I love your take on these four characters. I feel you hit a really good balance between respecting the canonical look of the characters while painting them with your own style and personality. Truly great work. I like how Fulgrim's face look gaunt and almost sallow, like he's perhaps unwell. It also makes his skin tone look really similar to the gold tones, which is fitting given his golden boy status up to the point just before this model represents.
The only criticism I have is a small one, and that's that Kor Phaeron's face looks a little too lively for my tastes. But that's knit picking of the highest order.
Excellent work and please keep it up. Also, I enjoy your blog posts.

02-12-2013, 10:21
Cheers for the feedback PrimeMinisterSinister - reading criticsm sucks but I need to hear it. Thanks for the input dude, I really appreciate it.

@ Tonny - Cheers man!

Ok, after getting some critical feedback on Fulgrim I decided to re-shoot the miniature. The original photo's have a weird unfocussed, greeny tint to the skin tone which doesn't match the real life equivalent. So here are the second set of photographs. Let me know what you think.

Brilliant Work!

03-12-2013, 03:49
Love fulgrims face, it just looks mad... He really looks as though he has fallen from sanity, yet retaining his ideals of perfection in an insane way.

Before this I'd never like the fulgrim sculpt, but you have managed to make this figure look tragic in the most amazing way. Keep up the great work!

Amazing stuff! Do you have a shot of fulgrim and Ferrus together?

05-12-2013, 18:38
Cheers for the positive comments guys.

@ M1acca1551: That's exactly what I was going for! I wanted a face drawn taught wracked by guilt, but thrilled by the experience of fighting and ultimately besting a brother Primarch.

Phew...what a piece. This felt more like a battle than a painting exercise. This was a difficult piece to attempt - not only are both miniatures exceptionally detailed but they can act as centerpieces all by themselves. I couldn't shake the idea that both Ferrus and Fulgrim were miniature suns exerting their individual gravity on the scene. The space marines littering the base are reduced to spectators (space particles if I were to belabour the metaphor) destroyed by the two titans dueling for the fate of Mankind's future.

I have another Primarch to paint by the end of the year. I have re-created one of my previous conversions and will be painting the First Child of the Emperor.

The First Son of the Imperium. Horus Lupercal Primarch of the Luna Wolves

"For the warrior, the only crime is cowardice."
— Attributed to Primarch Horus Lupercal


Original Horus Conversion:


"You are like a son and together we have all but conquered the galaxy. Now the time has come for me to retire to Terra. My work as a soldier is done and now passes to you for I have great tasks to perform in my earthly sanctum. I name you Warmaster and from this day forth all of my armies and generals shall take orders from you as if the words cam from mine own mouth. But words of caution I have for you for your brother Primarchs are strong of will, of though and of action. Do not seek to change them, but use their particular strengths well. You have much work to do for there are still many words to liberate, many peoples to rescue. My trust is with you. Hail Horus! Hail the Warmaster!"

The Emperor of Mankind

Of the primeval Priests assum'd power,
When Eternals spurn'd back his religion;
And gave him a place in the north,
Obscure, shadowy, void, solitary.
Eternals I hear your call gladly,
Dictate swift winged words, & fear not
To unfold your dark visions of torment.

The First Book Of Urizen, William Blake.

I painted Aurelian's face as if it were underlit by his suit. This gives the skin a golden tone before I start painting the Scripture, but also halos the Primarchs head quite nicely. I decided to go for yellow over a more contrasting blue to represent fire (Lorgar's head is a bright yellow, the under light is organge, his armour is red and the base is gret/ black). I also had Willaim Blake's Book of Urizen plates in my head and I couldn't escape trying to represent the damnation of the character through the painting.

Super amazing! You inspired me on how to paint my Lorgar. Really cool. He really looks like he have fallen to chaos. And I can't belive its the same model!

16-12-2013, 23:20
Nice touch to have Blake on the cape too

17-12-2013, 09:33
Love lobar. The red armour with the gold is a much better colour scheme and the under lighting on the head... Stunning.

17-12-2013, 09:42
I have one question only. His head looks much smoother than the FW one. How did you get it that smooth?

17-12-2013, 21:16
Damn, that looks good. Personally in favour of the grey/gold scheme though, but that's in spite of your painting, not because of it. Great work indeed.

Generally nice to see this model painted by non-FW people.


17-12-2013, 22:38
i like this plog and where it's headed, i'm a huge 30k fan.

you got any armies painted up? i'm noticing that what i miss the most is a whole army painted up in the forge world books, that and maybe a battle report, would be cool.

19-12-2013, 16:51
Cheers guys!

@ thrawn - No armies yet but I've painted 60 legionaries from the Luna Wolves and Night Lords Legions. They should be coming here soon.

BeatTheBeat Fair enough.

Fizzy Haha, I'm not sure. It's the same head as the forgeworld version.

Fourth cohort, here depicted at the Fall of Balan adopt the unusual practice of swapping their legionary symbol onto the right pauldron. This tradition follows on from their stalwart captain, Loken who wears a studded pad on the left to better deflect small arms fire. This practice can be seen to espouse the wider philosophy of the legion; of unsentimental warfare and savage battle acuity.

"The Warmaster's Own" Justaerin Terminators, first company, Sons of Horus
[Pict-capture Istvaan V Massacare]

The unbroken point of the spear, the Justaerin were the vaunted first of Horus' Legion. The Warmaster's Own has the honour of accompanying the higher echelons of the Legionary command staff to battle, gaining their name by the amount of teleport assaults performed alongside Horus.

The squad displays a wide array of weaponry preferring tactical flexibility to battle field specialization. Equally adept at engaging mass infantry to dense armoured formations, The Warmaster's Own have reeved a bloody path through the Great Crusade and have taken their dark legacy into the Heresy with gusto.

Three members of the The Warmaster's Own survived Terra and formed the core bodyguard of Abaddon post heresy. Known for their loyalty, the remaining members would be deceived by more ambitious Traitor Legionaries and put to the Sword M.33.


P.S There's a Valdor conversion on my Facebook & blog page - just thought I'd throw that in the mix.

Sicaran Tetras, The Bastard of Beltragh. Heavy Ordnance of the Sons of Horus, Eighth Millenial
[Pict-capture Twelve Emperor's Insurrection]

Fogred at Mars the machine spirit of Teras had a reputation as having a bilious disposition. It would continue to exhibit malfunctions of an esoteric nature until its unconfirmed destruction in M37.
However this war machine had several notable kills before and during the Heresy. Agemenom, Captain of the Raven Guard's Shrike Legion, Vakaris the Glutton and the Xenos Lord Brakka Noin all fell to Tetras. Its last days saw it in the service of Iron Warriors annexing the Prmary Star system of Fell [Cross REF. The Bastard of BeltraghXXXIIII - Inquisitorial Seal Magenta].

Awesome work, i already watched your youtube video of the sicarian. Your minis are all great, please do the tutorials you mentioned on facebook.

13-02-2014, 20:33
excellent work, such great painting skills:)

"Now we become Death, and the Destroyer of Worlds."[/I]
Unattributed. [/CENTER]

don,t know if it was intentional mend but still if you didn,t knew, well know you know it:D

its a quote from vishnu when he took multi armed form(krishna) its from the baghevad gita(hindu scripture)
oppenheimer used that quote after he saw wat the atombomb could do to mankind.

We knew the world would not be the same. Few people laughed, few people cried, most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says, "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.


for me one of the best but also tragic quote,s ive read/seen/heard/spoke.:confused:

14-02-2014, 00:36
Everything looks ace as usual. One thing though is that the SoH sicaran could do with some glyphs n stuff to fit with the general heresy era geist of the legion.

14-02-2014, 15:09
Cheers guys!

@ Tabularasa - you'll like the next update.

@ aad - I had j. robert oppenheimer in mind: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixb7MdeR8yU
The reasoning is chilling.

@ Kjed; I've bought my camera today and I'm waiting for a new lamp come april. I hope to roll out the tutorials then.

Whatever you've read about miniature painting I can tell you now that none of it was applied to Kharn. Instead of watering my paints down and blending multiple layers together I mixed the paint up with my own blood (even the whites) and 'stabbed' it on with the end of a bald brush. Varnish? ********, I screamed "Blood and Skulls" at the model for 20 minutes and now the paint is to scared to flake off. The nails sung their blood hymn as I sawed my own head off for the final oil/blood wash.

LOL, I believe you tho, all to stay in the mood of painting this madman. (I love him, when I grow up, I want to be like him).

10-03-2014, 20:21
As a doctor, I'd advise you to only use that method of painting sparingly!

Awesome result!

Love this log man keep up the painting!

16-03-2014, 16:57
I won't lie. I loled at the process for Kharn. Top notch job, I love how aggressive his face plate it.
These guys are an inspiration. I love the sickly feeling on Typhus. His armour looks a little....fleshy in spots.

09-04-2014, 10:53
Really fantastic work, I really like the realism and especially your method of painting armor. I hope you will make a tutorial on how you airbrush/paint your black armor on abandon and the justaerins. Looks like you build the highlight up with the ab and then tone it down with a wash? Do
you make any brush strokes at all or is it pure ab? But the effect is so smooth so there really needs to be a tutorial on this mate ;) black armor is so hard to make realistic.
Just an easy question, what do you seal your minis with when finished? :)

08-05-2014, 21:02
Cheers guys. I haven't got much time now so I'll swing round and answer your questions.

Abaddon, Captain of the first company, Son of Horus.

I love painting Yellow. Whenever I get the chance to paint an Imperial Fist I start planning out a small force for myself. The light colour scheme really contrasts well with the mud, grime and guts of the meat grinder that is the 30K universe.
