beautiful work fella. you perfection in painting is well suited to Fulgrim's finest. It's nice to see you adding more to this force.
The Emperors Children look so nice! Agree wit Petay1985. You realy make them Fulgrim`s finest.
you should seriously fill out the inquisitor I on the dreadnought sword, it clashes way to much with what you are trying to achive imho.
That Contemptor really fits the style of the Emperor's Children. Looking forward to seeing it painted!
That drad looks awesome. Ima gonna steal the idea for a lib dread

Sexy.... pure 100% sexy lol
Love the dread dude, really great work on it
Wow, this log is absolutely stunning! After a 10 year hiatus from the hobby this is seriously making me consider parting with a lot of cash for some forgeworld goodness! One itty bitty point (and please dont take this the wrong way) but wouldnt the Mk VI corvus armour of your EC tact. sergeant be a fraction too late for the period being modelled?

Thank you all for the great comments!
MDizzle,the MrkVI armour was being field tested by a number of Legions for a while before the Heresy erupted, with the Raven Guard testing the most and being honoured for it by naming the suit Corvus after their Primarch. Plus you can find EC wearing MrkVI on the cover of Fulgrim and a couple other images in Collected Visions. With the new Forge World Horus Heresy books coming out, a lot of us will be parted with a lot of our cash...
Valrak, it's a plastic chainsword from the Chaos Space Marine kit mate.
Ah ok, i had been wondering about their appearance in the Collected Visions and as you say on the cover of Fulgrim - i didnt realise they were being field tested as early as that. My bad! I love the Corvus design back from the original rogue trader days in all their crimson fist glory so any excuse to use some of these in either BA or IF colours is welcome! Keep up the good work and i look forward to seeing more!
Thanks for the response PDA, you've inspired me to create my own Pre-Heresy army, now I have to decided to either do Blood Angels or Imperial Fist
The Contemptor is progressing well but I have to veto the black helmet! With all the purple and gold/yellow going on focus is pulled a thousand places but there, and the head is really where the focus of the model should be. I think a plain purple helmet would work well, along with giving more brightness to the eyes to draw the (onlooker's) eye. Just my two cents; The paint job is really way above my level.
Oh, and Abaddon is jaw-dropping.
Absolutely awesome work on the Contemptor. I like the black helmet, but it does get a little lost in there. I'll wait to see what it looks like when the arms are on though. I think some washes on the banner would help a lot. Currently the freehand (which is great) looks a little fake. Some shading on the freehand to follow the contours of the banner would bring a little more realism to it. Some washes and/or a little edge highlighting on the freehand would help it loads.
My vote would be white helm. Classic veteran color and an homage to the stark white hair of Fulgrim himself.
Overall it's looking brilliant btw.
Thanks for the feedback guys. I'm not very pleased with the banner myself and will probably drop it and give him another (since it's not glued on).
About the helmet, i like it but i'm not 100% sold on it. The idea was to give a subtle hint of the 40k colour of the Emperor's Chidren. I'll see how it looks with the arms on and if i don't like it then, it will be painted purple.
Lovely paint job and free hand work DPA. I notice from earlier shots what looks like pencil marks (for the freehand) on the unpainted model, are those traced on? Do you re-trace when your painting them on?
Nope, the pencil marks are covered with the undercoat. It's just a little bit of pre planning just so i don't go all "creative bonkers monkey" on the model later on.
Personally i really like the way the black helmet looks, kinda like a leather mask - which in hindsight ends up quite fitting for the EC's and their 'alternative lifestyle'
