    Sons of Horus (update: Justaerin + new project)

    Hi folks

    I'm always very much inspired by all the awesomeness around here, so I though I might share my own stuff again.
    Usually I just hang around checking stuff out, without posting, but no longer!

    I'm not sure how to proceed, given the new edition and all, not even which codex I will take..
    Maybe you guys can help me out with this.
    Hopefully I can force myself to update the blog regularly, because I really hate making photo's (I suck at it)

    A year ago I started a Luna Wolves army, but after making a Horus model for the GW Dutch & Belgian painting competetion
    I decided to sell the bunch and start all over with a Sons of Horus army.. I've been working on it for some weeks now and I have
    most of the stuff I need, but a lot still needs to be constructed or finetuned.

    Here's my Horus (which won me gold for 40k single mini)


    This is my captain (Little Horus?), which will be painted tonight


    My dread (what weapon should I take? I'm not sure, but it has been magnetized already)




    A sergeant


    A termie, two regular grunts & and a jumpacker






    let me know what you think!

    Re: Sons of Horus

    thanks so far guys,

    I must say that I have been similarly impressed with some of your own logs in the past
    I'll probably post some pics of my captain tomorrow. I've just undercoated him

    Re: Sons of Horus

    As said by The Damned Artificer, you have painted some of the best Sons of Horus I've ever seen !
    Really good paintjob (I like all the freehands), and some good converting/sulpting work too.

    So consider me a constant follower of this thread, man !!

    Re: Sons of Horus

    Why are all these crazy awesome Sons Of Horus armies popping up? It's seriously tempting me to paint up a few for myself. Damn you

    On a serious note, these are looking all kinds of awesome. Looking forward to more!

    Cheers,
    BTB

    Outstanding. Simply outstanding. I wish I could paint like that.

    Re: Sons of Horus

    Very, very, cool. I love Little Horus, and the sergeant is a pretty sweet conversion and paintjob too. My only issue might be the sergeant looks too much like a captain, too similar in some regards to little horus (the use of the same powerfist doesn't help in that regard). Also, the hooded toward, while awesome, looks a little Dark Angel. Having said that, he could make quite a cool Targost decked out in super secret lodge robes.

    By the by, what's your recipe for green, Im always interested in seeing different peoples interpretations

    that was the idea. I'm not sure btw if it will be a sergeant, because I have no clue as to how the armylist will be.


    I made the green as follows:

    - Valejo Air Camo green ( I airbrushed all the basic infantry boys, but I use this colour with brushes as well, to keep it similar on all models)
    - 2 parts Camo green 1 part Citadel Sybarite green
    - 1 part Camo green 1 part Sybarite green
    - Sybarite green
    - extreme highlights with 50/50 mix Sybarite with bleached bone

    Re: Sons of Horus

    Amazing SoH! The green is alittle more "green" then I would go for, but the results speak for themselves.

    The conversion work on Little horus is great too, especially the helmet plume.

    But my absolute favourite bit so far is the little black and white shield on the relic contemptor! Consider it stolen, credit will be duly given

    Re: Sons of Horus

    The green was actually kind of an accident. I was trying out a lighter green, but when I was airbrushing some infantry, this was the result. I'm pretty happy with the result after all so I decided to keep it this way

    I've been working on my storm talon conversion today, so maybe tomorrow I'll add some pictures
