About the Project

Since the beginning of all things. The Emperor of Mankind has stood as the light in the darkness. We sisters, ordained and consecrated in battle, defend that beacon against all who come against it – Traitors, Heretics, Xenos – we defy them all. And when the time for vengeance comes: We shall bring the Emperor’s Mercy! (The mantra of the Sisters of the Emperor’s Mercy)

More things!

 

More Seraphim, because you cannot have enough!

Nope, just because I have them…

Zephyrim

Got the main colors blocked out.

These have primarily power weapons, which separates them from the Seraphim.

I did the exhaust wings white to further distinguish them from the Seraphim, whose exhaust wings were done in brass.

Put the brass on it.  Obviously, its going to take a lot of detail work...Put the brass on it. Obviously, its going to take a lot of detail work...

Adepta Sororitas Knight

So, I have seen several of these on the interwebs.  Most of them are just Knights with Adepta Sororitas transfers or icons.

My plan is to do a heavily converted Adepta Sororitas Knight.

Why?  Well, I have a Knight laying about the place with no plan for it.  And Adepta Sororitas has been my focus for the last year or two.

Therefore, an Adepta Sororitas Knight may well be appearing here at some point in the near future…

A rocket organ on top!  Seems a good place to start…

You all know I like my dynamic poses.  Well, this is just a WIP...  You all know I like my dynamic poses. Well, this is just a WIP...

Modeling the unfortunate Chaos Dread that got Spartan-kicked by the Sisters Knight.  Bass guitar string is great for cables.

Finished the sculpting on the chaos dread.  I couldn’t find the shoulder of his close combat arm.  I generally keep my shiznit fairly organized, as you can see, but I just could not find it anywhere.  So I cobbled together an arm from a plastic dread and the old-school chaos close combat arm.

With the addition of more bass guitar string cabling, I think it all came together pretty well.

So what Traitor Legion should I paint this dread up as?  No red because I want it to contrast with my sisters.  Alpha Legion I am thinking, no wait, yellow!  Who is yellow?  Nobody, but maybe Deathguard… Bile green might be a good contrast…

So, this was supposed to be a Spring Cleaning Challenge.  Lost the bits for it.  Finally found them like four weeks later.  Not going to make it as part of the challenge, but I can now proceed with getting this project done.

In case anyone was thinking I was getting close to being done with this…

I am perhaps half way done.

Those black vehicles I will probably get rid of.  That will leave me with two old school rhinos and two old school Imolators.  That should be sufficient.

Well, it’s been a while…

Finished the Castigator as a paint scheme test. I figured its more complicated than a Rhino or an Immolator, but not nearly as bad as an Exorcist – and I have three of those old-school things to paint!

I am actually liking it.

I completed all my heavy weapons, so I consider that progress.

I also built a gaming table, which I will show more of soon.

I’ve got a load of heavy weapon to do:

Well, updating the heavy weapons teams.  Laying down some white as a base for the Red Gore that I use as the base of the cloaks and what-not.

In addition, I have prepped the legs of the Paragon Warsuits to be cut up into something more dynamic.  Pics coming soon.

The Mortifiers got a base coat of Warplock Bronze and a heavy drybrush of Leadbelcher.  I am plum out of both of those, I guess I got to leave my house - goddammitt!!!

Fortunately the GW store is right across the street from the wine store, which is not far from the cat food store, and a Starbucks….

These Mortifiers don’t have all the purity seals that the penitent engine had, but they do have a bunch of filigree, which I am thinking I need to trim in brass.  So, apparently GW decided that Brazen Brass should no longer exist.  This is a trim color that I have used in three of my armies!  The so-called replacement is not even close.  Nor is the supposed equivalent with any of the other manufacturers.  I am now trying to mix something that is somehow close…

I am using equal parts GW Runelord Brass, Brass Scorpion, and Sycorax Bronze.  It comes close…

This was a pretty enjoyable mini to do.  I know some people hate this model, but I liked it.  The only pain is all of the purity seals.  For the final weathering I really wanted to grime it up, so I used some Secret Weapon Sewer Water and Algae to give it that final bit of grunge.

Next I think I will move on to the other two walkers – Mortifiers I guess they’re called.  Should be easy enough using the same techniques.

Next up is an old school penitent engine.  I want to make this grimy and rusty as befits an instrument of torture.

This is a mix of old metal and new plastic.  I particularly like the metal Imagifier.  I think that was a model released with a previous edition, but not one of the original metal models.

Red Gore and Scab Red.  I love these colors.  Nothing GW currently makes come close to replicating these colors.  I now find myself rationing out my small stock of pots of this that I have horded to paint my sisters army.

Does anyone know of any options for new sources for these classic colors?
