Hello everyone! I’m back with Reivers from First Strike that I finished a month or so ago, with the refined scheme from the test Scythes of the Emperor Primaris I posted up a while back. This is definitely the finalised scheme, and I really enjoyed painting it. Not to mention these Reiver sculpts are incredible.
The biggest change from my test piece was the black, which I much prefer now. It’s no longer distracting but still quite defined. They took a little longer than I would have liked, due to work and my constant procrastination, but now that I’ve got the recipes for all aspects worked out, future Scythes should go quicker. Here are the lads individually.
Can’t express how much I enjoy painting the Primaris marines. Everything about Space Marine miniatures that makes them a joy to paint is multiplied on these guys. Next up for the Scythes will probably be a quick character model of some sort, either the Store Anniversary Captain or the 30th Anniversary Veteran Sergeant.
Hope you guys and girls like the Reivers, until next time, happy hobbying!
Awesomeness!!!! =) Cant wait to see more
Thanks Jiunn, I can't wait to paint more!

So good! The changes you made to the black formula really made a big difference.
Looking forward to seeing more of these guys!
I've admired your painting since the debut of your 'Camine Blades'!
Do you have a personal Blog or Instagram to follow?
Thanks for your kind words. Here and Twitter, @DeanLecoq, are the only places I post my work.
Fantastic SotE, and great to see them get reinforced after decimation by Hivefleet Kraken…. yours look great!
No Chapter is more deserving in my opinion. 😉
These are beautiful. The red lenses and subtle glow, the nice yellow, and the new black is perfect. Totally agree on the joy of painting Primaris Marines too. I was unsure about them until I started painting them. They're just a joy to work with.
Thanks! Really looking forward to working through the Primaris range.
+1 on all points!
Love yo know if you start these with a black or a white undercoat.
Chaos Black undercoat. Followed by masking off the limbs and spraying the torsos Averland Sunset.
Hi, what brushes do you use?
Bit of an extremely late post (nearly 2 years in fact), but what recipe do you use for these badasses? Is there a tutorial/specific method? Was looking for inspiration for my own Emperor's Scythes, and saw this page.
