    Word Bearers Calth MADNESSS

    It has been a while since I posted anything, but now that I had some pictures I thought why not start a new log?

    I'm working on a Word Bearers army, using codex SM, for a 1750 club tournament here in the Netherlands.
    The pictures are a bit random, but more will follow according to what gets finished. Everything has to be finished within
    a month and there are some 800 points left to do!

    The list is somewhat competitive (club pressure ), but I'm generally more of a painter/converter than a gamer.
    Lots of bikes, but in the the pictures now there will only be a few. I'll post my armylist later.

    The background for my army is set on Calth, hence all the dead/wounded ultramarines. Fun to do and the colours make it stand out.

    BTW my proper camera is broken so I have to do with an iPhone for now...




    First of all, my Tanklord (very fluffy, I know)







    And some troops (will be a squad of 5 tacs with a plasmacannon)



    some bikes





    My Thunderfire Cannon (with some WIPS for those interested)





    Tonight I'm working on my heavily converted Storm Raven (I will have a before and after painting)

    C&C welcome as always! Let me know what you think!

    Superb painting! It's great to see new stuff from you, even though we miss your Sons of Horus as well...

    The books and scrolls is incredibly well made and I really like the greek letters.

    Wowzers are these good! I love the conversions, the jet bike lord looks like a total badass, the thunderfire is a million times better than the "real" one and even the painting is top notch!

    Good work sir keep it up!

    Re: Word Bearers Calth MADNESSS

    Thanks guys!

    @sheep: the red is just khorne red, but applied with an airbrush. I find that the current GW colours work quite well with my airbrush (and tamiya x20a thinner).

    The colours are a bit flat with the lighting and camera, but in real life there's a bit more subtle with shades of lighter and darker red, but you have to take my word for it

    Here's also an update:

    That storm raven is gorgeus. Looking forward to see it finished.

    I thought your Sons of Horus were great, and now you roll these out! These are some really incredible Word Bearers. You do an excellent job with your conversions, never going so over the top as to distract, but packing in plenty of detail to really make them stand out.

    Re: Word Bearers Calth MADNESSS

    Not sure I like seeing all those dead Ultramarines....

    But in this case I'll let you off as these are fantastic, especially the jet bike conversion.

    And your Thunderfire cannon is awesome, if it's OK I will steal that idea as i hate the stock model?

    Will you be doing any Cultists, or is the army pretty much all bikes?

    I've seen the finished army and can say it's truly stunning! You guys will love the Attackbike conversions.

    Some of the best Heresy-era Wordies I've seen
    Yeah, we flew our space church across 500 light years to get to this planet taken over by the orks. Now we're going to drop from orbit in buckets and run out and shoot pistols and hit people in the head with chainsaws. Ultramarines!

    Everything looks fantastic. Particularly like seeing the Heresy bikes painted up.

    And am I right in spotting Lego propellors on that Storm Talon?
