Hey everyone, Silvernome here back with more Chaos Legion goodness!

I’ve always been a fan of the Chaos Legions, but since I mostly play Death Guard and Thousand Sons I never really have had the chance to paint the other Legions without building out a force. I’ve always had a soft spot for dreadnoughts, they are just so iconic to Warhammer, so I decided to start collecting Contemptor Dreadnoughts from each legion to give me that chance to paint them all. When I’ve eventually collected and painted them, the grand plan is to make a small diorama to show them off.

Another update on my Silver Skulls Team. Working on the final two models, still this takes longer than expected. Garfy slaps out these Primaris so quickly, makes me admire his Conquest run even more. Speaking of Garfy, doesn't the Sergeant with the sword look a little bit like Garf when he had a mohawk? Hmm, I might be on to something...

I spent a whole week of evenings hand painting this armour. Glazing and glazing Warpstone Glow over Caliban Green was very tedious. Spending so long with this model I had a lot of time to think. I was considering the aesthetic of this scheme. Technically it's a complicated blend which I think is very pleasing to the eye but if you're into realism then these highlights fall short of that expectation. Miniature painting is art and that means it's all about the painter expressing themselves. I do this by choosing to paint bright, sharp paint jobs that wouldn't look out of place in a 1990s White Dwarf (like Kim Syberg Spaces Wolves). How about you? What kind of style do you prefer? Would you ever spend a week hand blending the armour or would you break out the airbrush? 

Hi all! Here you can see my latest addition to my Knight House "Teldor": an Armiger Knight Helverin with a Teldorian Noble and his brave dog.

For the Noble I took the "Officer of the Fleet" from the (OOP) Imperial Regimental Advisor group. You may remember this set, consisting of the above mentioned Officer, a Navigator and an Artillery Officer. For the dog I used Aximillion from the Rogue Trader Kill Team boxed set. The Knight Household is still expanding, waiting for a Knight Valiant to be completed...
