Imperial Fist Chaplain - Commission Paint

Following on from the Primarch responsible for the creation of the Chaplains of the Adeptus Astartes comes this fellow who I've been commissioned to paint up as an Imperial Fist:

Lorgar Aurelian Primarch of the XVII Legiones Astartes

Well, it's been a long old slog but I think I've produced something I can be proud of:

I had originally envisaged portraying the Golden One during the vicious battle in the Urgall Depression on Isstvan V but part way through painting him decided that as I'd painted him in the crimson of the heretic placing him during the Shadow Crusade would be more fitting.

I can't remember if I've mentioned in a previous post or not but Lorgar is the first Primarch I've painted and I'm actually really glad I started with him. The simple lines of the mini allowed me to be able to get to grips with working at a larger than normal scale as well as the opportunity to try out some new metallic techniques and recipies.

Of course now I've painted one, I want to paint more and next up will be Horus Lupercal. After him, well there's another 16 to go...

Araloth 'Corrupted'

I picked up the new Wood Elves Araloth mini from GW Ness earlier on and after a little thought decided to use him to crete a Lord/Hero/Battle Standard Bearer for my Dark Elves.

It'll be a little while before he sees paint as I'm still planning out the army but I'm happy with the conversion.
