So regular readers of this blog will know that a few weeks ago I painted up one of the new plastic Culexus Assassins from the Execution Force boxset.
That particular model was great fun to paint but as my heart and passion lies in ‘Oldhammer’ I sourced myself one of the original 1997 metal assassins to go alongside it.
I have to say that I’m really happy with how the modern paints and techniques have worked on this beautiful old figure.
I went for a nice cool blue tone on the black synskin armour and a contrasting warmer grey/black for the cables and equipment. I like to have a bit of contrast like this to differentiate materials.
I’m looking forward to getting this monster on the tabletop and seeing how his insidious Pariah talents work out against my friends army of Grey Knights (who are all Psykers).
My next project will be to do a couple of Eversors to round out my growing Assassin collection.
Nice work on this classic. I always liked the lore and models for the Culexus Temple.ReplyDelete
