Heresy Era Sons of Horus - Contemptor and Predators "Off the factory floor"!

A little cleanup and basing session last night brought the models up to what I call the "fresh off the factory floor" stage, where they're ready for the initial sealant pass in preparation for the waterslides and weathering steps.

Went with a muddy blasted urban scheme for the base, with the brickwork in a lighter sandstone color to give it a little pop. I'll be adding in a couple tufts of grass, and have ordered up some of the Secret Weapon water effects that I'll be adding at the verrrrry end after the final sealant pass (as it sounds like the spray sealant may mess up the look of the water).

Spent some time cleaning up the most egregious sloppy edge lining on the predators, and added in the various lights and lenses. Naturally now that they're ready for the initial sealant pass, it's forecast to be rainy and chilly for the next several days. Curse you, mother nature!


  1. Mother Nature is a tease. Look great, love the green hues, really nice SoH scheme.

  2. Very nice indeed, Can't get my head round how quick you get stuff done!

  3. @Siph_Horridus: Indeed! Thanks man, rather happy with how they're coming along so far.

    @Nick Thrower: Hah! A little bit every day, and every few days there's enough of an update to warrant a post! :)

  4. I imagine you hitting 'pause' on the painting servitor and sitting with a huge mug of recaf just watching the weather through an enormous window.

  5. @Zzzzzz: Haha! Pretty much, though the window is only medium sized and it's more apt to be a glass of Amasec. ;)
