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!

Thanks so much! Was a fun kit to paint and pretty easy to finish in a few days.
Great looking Stargate. I also love Scale 75 Metallics… is the Frame Edge highlighted with Speed Metal? Decayed Metal is perfect for Death Guard if you haven't tried yet.
I used Vallejo Model Air Steel for the edge highlighting. Still can't give that paint up, haha. Yeah, I'm itching to use Black/Thrash metal combo on more death guard stuff in the future, hell maybe even redoing my DG themed Renegade Knights =D
I mean the Scale 75 Color "Decayed Metal". It's a great Basecoat for Death Guard decayed Metals ^^

Really impressed with how crisp the colors are. Color combinations work really well too.
