So I picked up Mortarion the Reaper from Heresy Trading on Facebook some time ago now. I had originally been planning to start a Deathguard force, but I decided that I was pushing my time and funds a little to hard with that endeavour! Especially since I have a chunk of Sisters of Silence lying in wait... I just need their vehicle to be released!!
But I have kept hold of him as a little painting project and I've decided to start work on him fairly soon, just little odds and sods in my idle time more than anything. I bought him without his scenic base and he was pre-built and undercoated so I still need to decided where I'm going with his colours and whether he needs to be re-under coated.
It is one oft he best Primarch models out there in my opinion and really gives off a sense of dread! I'm looking forward to laying some paint down on him very much. (Just noticed I'm missing an exhaust.... hopefully that is in his box somewhere!).
In other news I have got some way with all the gubbins that were missing from the Deathwing Land Raider in its last pictures. This one will be a crusader to make good use of the extra space and fill it full of terminators I'm sure!
Loads of odds and sods to do on this chap still. The lights will be getting some soft OSL added and I do need to retrospectively drill the bolters (my bad!), but overall its taking good shape :)
