Evil Space Elves 30K World Eaters: 11/28 More Knight stuff

Postby Evil Space Elves » Thu Jan 02, 2014 1:40 pm

Howdy all.

I'm at the end of completing my large Dark Eldar force(hence the handle!) and decided to jump into 30K for 2014. I had the opportunity to pick the Angron model from a friend that needed some painting work done and was hooked on the idea of a WE's force after painting all of the loyalist victims at his feet.

I realize that this model won't be part of the judging as I don't have a WIP shot with the date, but wanted to share it for the heck of it:

I've yet to come up with a list for the challenge (just heard of this site/challenge from Crazy Irish at Thedarkcity.net this morning), but it will be sure to include Rampagers, Red Butchers, and lots of Tactical marines(my favorites). I have some things on order and will post my list before the Feb 1st deadline.

Excited for this challenge!

That's a great looking Angron! I'll have to get pictures of mine up when I get some more time to finish him up. I look forward to seeing your army come together, I'm working on a preheresy World Eater army myself and know the white can sometimes be difficult to get right. Let me know if you find any good techniques!

Angron looks great! I'm looking forward to watching this army come to completion! I'm working on a sons of horus 30k army myself for this challenge so I'll be following all the 30k armies closely

Amazing job on my favorite Primarch!
I've seen your Dark Eldar force and can't wait to see your World Eaters.

Thanks for the complements!

@Twizted86: I painted the white for Angron's victims/comrades in the way using a P3 Bastion Grey base, 50/50 Dawnstone/Administratum Grey layer, and a final highlight of 50/50 Administratum Grey/White. I've painted one other army using white(Tau) and found that you really don't want to go up to a pure white if you can avoid it to avoid the cartoony effect

Almost have the 6 Rampagers assembled for February:
Image
My favorites are the non-Cadaere weapon (just chain axes and bolt pistol/CCW) models. I had some model chain left over and decided to mix Rampager and regular MKII models. The model on the far right uses a CSM torso with the chaos icon shaved off. I've ordered the brass etch kit and MKII power weapons kit from FW and will put an WE icon on the torso and one of those cool broad axe PW's when they arrive. There are two more models (not pictured) with the stock meteor hammer, one with an excoriator.

No pics yet, but the Centurian with Excoriator chain axe is coming along nicely :twisted:

Hey great to have you on this forum, your Dark Eldar are some of the best I've ever seen.

I like the darker palette that you've chosen for Angron, it really fits the whole gladiatorial story better than the brighter paintjobs I've seen elsewhere.

The Chaos stuff looks incredible & they're not even painted yet. Love the chain work, I've often wanted to get some of that going but not knowing how different scales will look on a mini has always kept me from pulling the trigger and buying some.
