Heresy Era Imperial Fists - Templar Brethren and Cataphractii Terminators nearly done...

Little bit of brush time over the weekend, and got a few more colors down on the Templars and Terminators!

Laid in the basic silver, gold and whites on the various areas, though they are just the basecoats currently - more shading and highlights to come so they don't look quite so flat. I also roughed in the basecoat for the bases, which immediately helps the models pop a bit (especially when they are predominantly black anyway)!

Probably one or two more sessions to go over the next few evenings, hopefully we'll get another break in the weather soon and I can get them sealed in preparation for weathering!


  1. Lovin' the colors on these guys dude, looking good!

  2. These are looking good so far, I like the scheme, but perhaps a little too much green? Maybe it's the tone of green, not sure, but it's quite distracting on the Templar squad? Might be totally different in real life tho? Great stuff.

  3. Starting the bases really does make the difference - there was lots of black there at one point - the complete opposite to the yellow of the last unit!

  4. The colour palette for all of the Imperial Fists you've ever painted is just lovely. Awesome stuff :)

  5. This is what black templars should look like. Excellent job.

  6. Awesome stuff Joel! So happy the faeit blog is back :)

  7. @Jugger: Thanks very much, man!

    @Siph_Horridus: Thanks! The green is a little neon, I think it may benefit from a little dark green or brown wash to tone it down a bit. Good call!

    @Frothing Muppet: Cheers bud!

    @30k plus 40k: Thanks man! They've been fun to work on so far!

    @Col. Hertford: Thanks! Been enjoying the reversed black and yellow scheme!

    @Greg Hess: Totally! Been going through it and picking up some cool new blogs!

    Thanks for all the kind words, everyone!

  8. Looks great dude. Those bases really complement the minis :)

  9. Just seem to see the green on the laurels as being very close to the blue of the power weapons...?

    Otherwise, coming along nicely mate.

  10. Nice. I like how they tie in to the eventual successor offshoot Black Templar look.

  11. Hey mate, just checked in, the Fists are all looking amazing!! Love the blue against the yellow and black of these Templars too. Great stuff!


  12. @NafNaf: Thanks man! Rather happy with how they're coming along!

    @Dai: Indeed, it's a bit too neon, definitley going to be toning it down a bit!

    @#2501: Thanks very much, I too like the continuity!

    @RED SCORPS: Cheers, bud!

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone!
