Here are the Lieutenants from the Dark Imperium boxed set. I basically used these guys as the coloring template for the rest of the normal Primaris marines in my army. I really like these guys because while they look like Intercessors they have the little accents to make them a little more special.
One of my Favorite Primaris minis. His base with the dead marine along with the little options to change his backpack tools. I do like how he is so uninterested in the battle to look at the gland he just freshly ripped out.
I also changed the all white with a single shoulder pad in chapter colors so i decided to have white colored armor plates instead. He still looks like an apothecary but also very much a Minotaur
One of the first minis I painted from the Dark Imperium boxed set. I really liked the look of all the minis in the set. I painted a bunch more, but I’ve been working on them constantly instead of posting anything new here.
This is the first time I used shapeways shoulder emblems and they are pretty detailed. I wished I glued them more intelligently when i first got them though. Instead of the smart way of doing it, I put glue on the tiny emblem in between my fingers which ended up on my fingers also, then tried to place it properly on the shoulder in the few seconds the zap-a-gap dries and glues it in place.
Since then I figured out that placing the emblem in place first then using zap-a-gap’s thin consistency to flow between the shoulder and emblem way better. Just have to quickly wick away the excess and then do a little scraping for clean up. Sadly on this mini i got the emblems after i painted everything else.
Continued adventures into airbrushing. Used preshading for the primer coat again, but used Vellejo’s transparent blue versus an ink like the Zuyong. Playing around with the gloss shades from GW and pigment powders for some weathering on the legs. I like how this came out, it is actually weathered and it doesn’t go overboard like some of my poor poor Tamiya tank kits.
This is my first attempt at pre-shading using the primer and airbrush. I think it came out really good. From looking at the pictures the shaded colors look much darker than normal because the light source of my photobox is directly above the mini. This sculpt really makes me appreciate Infinity mini’s so much. There are so many intricate details filling the model.
(Updated for the third time with brighter pictures)
FINALLY FINISHED. This took way too long to complete. I partly blame the first Imperial Knight from the set for causing a bit of modeler’s block. But it is finished!
Painted along with decals made Carlson793 from Bolter and Chainsword. Made using the Legio Gryphonicus decals. The color scheme felt a bit too busy at times but in the end i liked how it came together. The gun arm is fully magnetized to be able to switch between the melta and cannon forms. Then there is a pile of masks for the knight also.
And finally together with the my last knight (ignore the cardboard box, this is a little too much plastic to fit in my homemade photobox)
The first painted minis in a few months. Lots of personal family issues but getting back into the groove of putting paint on mini. I do really like these Stormcast minis, they are nice and bulky and have lots of little detail in the armor. Was kinda lazy in doing a lot of highlighting. Ehh maybe the next model I’ll invest more time, but this is a good way to get back into it.
