Mentor Chapter – Bladeguard and Ancient – Indomitus Primaris.

Not much new to add… They are on an itty bitsy lower standard than my previous “character bits”… in that I’ve cut even more corners! They are borderline too clean, due to having less highlight passes than the previous ones… And straight up laziness keeping me from doing again that freehand falcon-head on their shoulder-pads and the heraldry/or whatever on their bisageaus, So they are screaming to me that they need maybe some sponging of dark-brown chipping… some scratches… something else! But overall I’m super-happy with how the box is coming out!

Monkey paw hand is going into my reserve pieces… As display choices so far, the Bladeguard Ancient’s body it’s either a regular Bladeguard Veteran or the Judiciar. De banner looks very cool on the Captain’s body, demoted to standard bearer… To keep it “what you see is what you get”, he goes into de Lieutenant’s body… Judiciar turned into Librarian and a (now bearded) Chaplain, seems pretty cool as he is default. Next… some Eradicators!

    Those look very impressive. I really like the dusty feeling you’ve given them.

    1. Thanks! AK Interactive’s colour pigments used on the base and lightly brushed over their feet and lower robes… The kind of chalky finish of my noobish white and the desert basing does the rest… 😉

    1. Really liking this Primaris models beyond my initial resistance! Ignoring the retconed lore, they look super-human and really tall at the side of any other figure… Which “firstborn” and their cartoony proportions had me forgotten.

    The green, gold, and metallic colors all work together really well and I dig the way your power swords look!
