Showcase: Sons of Horus Praetor with double-handed Axe
I painted a Contemptor Dreadnought, a Kratos, and some infantry, so now it was time to add a worthy leader to my Sons of Horus strikeforce. The Praetor with double-handed axe is my favourite model from the new Horus Heresy range, and I wanted to do the model justice.
Showcase: Sons of Horus Tactical Support Squad with Rotor Cannons
Cannons go brrr in today’s Horus Heresy flavoured post. Check out the first infantry unit for my Sons of Horus warband, a Tactical Support Squad armed with rotor cannons.
Review: Horus Ascended
Here on Tale of Painters, we celebrate the ascension of Horus with a review of the new Primarch model from Forge World. Horus Ascended marks the beginning of a new generation of sculpts that will capture the Primarchs in the later eras of heresy. In this unboxing, we find out whether Horus has been given a successful new update.
Showcase: Sons of Horus Contemptor Dreadnought with CCWs
Hooray, I painted something! The Contemptor Dreadnought is one of my favourite kits from the Horus Heresy plastic range, so I couldn’t help to paint one for my small Sons of Horus collection. Find out more after the jump.
Video tutorial: Speedpainting grimdark Sons of Horus
Today I have a video version of my popular Sons of Horus speedpainting tutorial. This tutorial uses techniques like zenithal highlights, sponge weathering and drybrushing, allowing you to finish a Space Marine Legionary in 45 minutes or less. Find out more in this post.
Showcase: Sons of Horus Kratos Heavy Assault Tank
One of the most popular models of the new edition of Warhammer: The Horus Heresy was without a doubt the Kratos Heavy Assault Tank. This massive behemoth of a tank closes the gap between the Sicaran Battle Tank and the Fellblade, and the kit is a real treat for any treadhead. I couldn’t imagine a better model to kick off my Sons of Horus collection, so enjoy a few pictures of my very own Kratos in this post.
Tutorial: How to paint grimdark Sons of Horus MkVI Space Marines
In this tutorial, I show you how to paint the MkVI Space Marines from the Age of Darkness box as “grimdark” Sons of Horus, with lots of weathering and battle damage. The whole paint scheme goes pretty fast with under 60 minutes for one model, and (almost) completely avoids edge highlights! And the best thing is that this tutorial can be adapted for any Legion or Chapter, you just have to change the colour of the armour. Let’s go.
