They're a mash-up of kits using the 40K Raptor as the 'chassis'. The arms are largely plain old MkVII Marine pieces, with the Forge World upgrades for the heads and pad with the icon. They've therefore got a Heresy vibe to them and I think they'll play happily with my 30K squads.
The big news here (a generous term, I know) is that I changed the way I did the metallic blue. In the olden days I airbrushed metallic blue as a base. But my airbrush is now dead and I've not got easy access to a booth. So I experimented a bit with Citadel's wonderful new Contrast paints and found a recipe that successfully approximates the older blue:
- Spray Leadbelcher
- Drybrush with silver
- Liberally coat with Ultramarines Blue Contrast working up to Talassar Blue Contrast on the upper surfaces
- Add a second coat of Talassar Contrast Blue with a hint of green and thinned, all with Contrast Medium
- Wash with Drakenhof Nightshade Shade
- Chip and weather with black then silver
Next up some Heresy Terminators for a very exciting group project that we're aiming to complete by early 2020.
