Massive 40k Sell-Off,Get the Getting While its Good

Last night while I was seraching an hour for a special bit I had a dreadful realisation.
My Hobby Room looked like an episode of Hoarders.
I have so much stuff that if all I did was paint models all day long I could still never finish them.
So today I stepped out of myself and really went through my models.
There are alot of reallt good models in the pile but I will never ever get to them,the time has come to sell them.
I opened a new E-Bay store BigWill's Big Sell-Off,come on by if you want rare model for bargin basement prices.
I still have way too much but now it is more managable

I finished the paintjob on the chassis,added the iconography and sprayed him with Glosscote.
I used Burnt Umber oil paints tpick out the rivets lines.
Now he has to dry a few days before I touch him again.

Bakhart Pt 2 Chaos Rising

I had to fix the pose so it did not look like it was falling backward.
I repositioned the leg but had the great idea to keep it off the base so I can paint him properly.
I also chaosfied him

Sons of Horus Dreadnought Bakhart Pt 1

Sons of Horus Captain

This is one of my favorite conversions ever.
I repainted him so he is nw the same shade as the rest of the army

Sons of Horus Painting Tutorial

A few of you sent me messages on how I painted my Sons of Horus.
Today I give you the recipe.
You will need the following paints
From Vallejo Panzer Aces line:
Africa Korps Tank Crew(336),Highlight Russ.I Tkcr(329)
From Citadel:
Chaos Black,Boltgun Metal,Scab Red,Blood Red,Scorched Brown,Thrakka Green,Badab Black,Devlin Mud,Asurman Blue
From Tamiya:
Clear Red
Step one give a good solid base coat with Afirca Korps be sure to thin the Vallejo paint well they tend to be thicker than GW in my experience
Step two mix equal parts Thraka Green,Delvin Mud,Badab Black,Asurman Blue and water for a wash that you will coat the model with.
Be sure the wash in concentrated more in the cracks and not on the flat plates on his armor
Step three use a 50/50 mix of Africa Korps and Russian Highlight use this mix to paint your model carefully leaving the base color at the cracks.
Take your time and use thinner paint and more layers to get a good solid finish
Also paint your blacks and reds at this time so you can use the green mix to fix mistakes
Anything you want as a red gemstone like I am doing on the chest and knees paint Blood Red over the Scab red.
Step four paint your metallics with Boltgun Metal and coat the Red gemstones with Tamiya Clear Red.
Paint or decal your unit markings and weapon of choice and you are good to go
Step five(optional)use just the Russian Highlight if you want to paint hard edge highlights

Sons of Horus Apothecary

I am starting the new army with the command squad so next up is the Apothecary.
Like the banner bearer he has been a member of the legion for a long time and is in older Mk2 Crusade plate.
I use the Chaos Termie Lord bare head for all of my unhelmeted members so they all are True Sons that have his face.
The Grey Knight Termie Apothecary bits fit really well with the Mk2 backpack and a FW plasma pistol finish him off

Its a New Sons of Horus Army

I couldn't bring myself to sell the old army just yet.
In fact It will be resold as a small strike force without Vehicles,I could not bear to part with them,especially the Pre-Heresy Land Raider.
So to begin this army I am starting with the command squad and bolter brothers.
I decided to use the topknots as a unit identifier,tactical is blue,devastator is brown,assault is red,and command with be purple.
The first one is the banner bearer,I used Mk2 since it is an ancient that usually carries the banner.
I added chains and skulls to liven it up,I used the Horus heresy Anthology as a reference for the design.
I found a new recipe for the armor that is much closer to the Index Astartes article.

The Finished SoH Army for Sale

With those last 5 tacticals this army is as complete as I am going to make it.
I plan on redoing it with nothing but Forge World and a new paint scheme my friend Apologist came up with on The Great Crusade.
He is doing a TrueScale SoH that has made me rethink my army.
So to pay for the new I am selling the old,I never play anyway just paint so I will be happy to sell it to someone who will be stoked to play it.
Here is the link to it

Sons of Horus Tactical 5

Here is the last tactical I am painting up.
This guy is starting to slip to Khorne

Sons of Horus Tactical 4

Here is tactical IV the missile launcher.
I gave it a Rouge Trader paint job to go with the vintage bit.
I had a hard time getting the backpack to fit so I had to clip off a vent but you can't tell unless you are really looking for it the Launcher end up being the focal point.

Sons of Horus Sergeant pt1

I am starting my Sons of Horus tactical with the Sergeant.
I used the new Forge World powerfist for him,I love that bit.
I used Vallejo Light Sea Grey and Scaly Green to paint him with.
I still need to make a back banner for him or should I do without it,that is the question I am asking myself right now.

Sons of Horus Katulan Reaver Squad

After a long Hiatus from painting I picked up the brush again this week and started to finish off my last project.
Right before I stopped I was about to make a respectable Sons of Horus army
So the first squad I wanted to do was the assault/raptor squad in Mk3.
Hence the Katulan Reavers"First in Last Out" the Sons of Horus first company assault squad.
Kalus Eakaddon is the one with the power sword and horsehair crest,the rest have the iconic SoH ponytail.
