These guys were an interesting challenge. I used a dark green and then washed with black to get the armor looking the way I wanted, and did a lot of work on the faces, with varying levels of success. I’m particularly happy with the bald warrior.
I finally got these varnished and ready for prime time! The Adeptes Astartes will likely be a loaner Kill Team, and I expect the terrain to see a lot of use. I’m pretty happy with how these came out – I’m progressing in my skill on finer details.
The latest out of the paint shop are a squad apiece of Iyanden Aeldari rangers and Dire Avengers. I’m particularly pleased with the more muted yellow and blue scheme on the rangers.
Finshed up a double batch of Iyanden Aeldari troops – a squad each of Guardian Defenders and Storm Guardians. I’m particularly happy with some of the faces on these guys – still honing my skin and eyes skills.
Adding to my Kill Team roster, this group of Eldritch Raider Corsairs goes by “Yriel’s War Dogs”. Each wears the colors of their Craftworld, Masque, or Kabal of origin in addition to their blue and yellow Eldritch Raider garb. I’m particularly happy with the face of the Soul Weaver, the camouflage pattern on the Fate […]
Continuing my open defiance of the box art, I painted these Xiphon Interceptors and Storm Eagle Assault Craft in Ultramarines colors. Coming soon, Happy Monster Joy’s take on Ork Air Waaaaagh units!
The box art for Aeronautica Imperialis: Wrath of Angels from Games Workshop clearly shows Craftworld Saim-Hain colors for the Aeldari fighters and bombers, but I’m stubborn – this squadron is painted in my preferred Iyanden color scheme instead. I had to freehand the symbols on the fighters, but I’m reasonably happy with how they came […]
I’m very happy with how these came out and looking forward to using them in my first in-person Kill Team game!
The Iyanden army continues to grow with a squad of Guardian Defenders from the Red Death battalion. I used a recommended approach of base-coating with Corax white and then doing the yellow with Cassandora Yellow shade. Not totally happy with this, so I’m going to try a different approach for my next squad.
These guys took a while because I got a little overloaded with work in progress. They’re not my primary 40K faction – I have them basically as a spare Kill Team for friends.
