Hey everyone, Silvernome here back with more Chaos Legion goodness. Today I wanted to share a look at my recently finished Noctilith Crown.
I can’t get enough of this latest release of Chaos Space Marine goodness. But as much as I adore the new line-up, one item really stuck out to me: the Noctilith Crown. Its rules are just perfect for both my Death Guard (hello 5+ inv for my Poxwalkers) and for my Thousand Sons (what’s that? I can re-roll any psychic test?!). I couldn’t wait to pick one up!
I took this chance to try out the Scale 75 metallics on the main frame, both Trash Metal (main frame) and Black Metal (the inner parts). I used the Brass colours on my Khorne units previously but this was the first time airbrushing them. I can’t recommend them enough, they go on super smooth.
Here are a few more detail shots:
I decided to not do a glow on the metallic rim from the coils as it didn’t make sense as a light source. I wanted them to be heated but not glowing, so there is some colour grading inside.
I had the pleasure of testing it out in a game before painted and I already want a second!
