Pre-Heresy World Eaters

Hey There :D

Just taking a moment to explain my contributions here. I am currently working on Pre-Heresy World Eaters. This is the army I have chosen from the first book "Betrayal". This army appealed to me mainly because of the Primarch Angron, who I think is a badass in my eyes :D I also loved the colour/paint scheme that applies to this army (see details below)

In regards to myself, I am in fact the newest Battle Bunny, and this is actually my first Warhammer project. When I was much younger I collected Lord Of The Rings miniatures for quite some time but never moved on to 40k. Have always been tempted to do it but never found the opportunity. After getting a better paid job and having a Bunny as a manager, it was only a matter of time before I started!! Up to now I have acquired the start of my list and am massively enjoying my time :) I am a little bit of a perectionist, and am prone to making slipups so I know I will put my best efforts into this army and future armies I engage with.

In regards to the paint scheme I follow, I use the Forge World Painting Guide which is available to download from their website. This consists of:

1. Undercoat with Skull White
2. Wash with a mix of 25%
Drakenhof Nightshade, 25% Nuln
Oil, 25% Lahmian Medium and
25% water;
3. Lightly sponge Ceramite White
mixed with a little Lahmian
Medium to raised surfaces.
Shoulder Pads/Backpack:
1. Undercoat with Chaos Black
2. Basecoat with Kantor Blue;
3. Highlight with Teclis Blue mixed
with a little Lahmian Medium.
4. Wash with Body stage 2 mix above.
1. Basecoat with Sycorax Bronze;
2. Roughly highlight with 50/50 Sycorax Bronze and Runefang Steel
3. Wash with Body stage 2 mix above.

This painting scheme is one of the few Pre-Heresy guides that are very accurate (there have been reviews that some schemes are not realistic to their images) but the World Eater guide is great.

Here is my proposed list for my army, ambitious I think but let me know what you think:

  1. They are looking brilliant. The sponge dapple technique looks so gorgeous. Can't wait to see the Jump Packs. I love the Mk4 Sergeant's Helm crest.
    Bet you can't wait to do Angron.
