The very first of my Mortifactors Vanguard Veterans has rolled off the production line and I’m really happy with him. It’s a lot of old techniques that we’re all familiar with from my previous posts, but as I’ve mentioned previously, this is one of my favourite kits so I wanted to show off my early efforts.
One thing that I don’t like in the recent kits that have been released for the Space Marines in the last wave are the power swords. There’s one in the Vanguard Vets set that I like, out of two and I’m saving that, so for this mini, I used a Grey Knights sword. Happily, I’ve got quite a few left over as Grey Knights have a lot more fun weapons.
On this model, I’m really happy with the glowing eyes, the Crux Terminatus on the shoulder pad, the colouring on the sword and the Aquila shoulder pad. Actually, the shoulder pads in the Van Vets kit are really good – lots of Terminator Crosses and cool sculpts. Anyway, you’ll see some more of those as I continue with the squad. Here are a few more pictures for you:
The model was undercoated black, painted using Citadel Paints and a Windsor & Newton Series 7 Finest Sable 000 brush. Watch this space for the rest of the squad to appear in the coming weeks!
