House Ordos Project Blog – Mission 11

Greetings fans of the Executrix!

In this installment I get the Castellan up to scratch like the rest of his Knightly Cohorts. I’m going to keep this article shorter, because many of the techniques I used to paint this model are ones that I have already discussed through painting both the Armiger and Questoris class knights. So firstly i’ll just show you some photos of the chassis from the painting process:

 

One difference in this model that I did want to draw attention to was the Plasma Decimator. Plasma guns are something that i’ve been scared of in the past. I usually just slap on one colour and call it finished. I went to check YouTube for a tutorial, and to my relief and surprise, there was a Duncan tutorial on just this subject!

 

 

So there was one problem with this – I didn’t have any of the colours that were mentioned in the video. A problem to be sure  but I had come far, and I wasn’t about to be deterred. I made the decision that I could try and get a “green” glow as opposed to a “blue” glow. I started by painting the plasma coils Incubi Darkness (one of my favourite colours that citadel has ever produced):

 

Not the best attempt, but I was struggling to keep my hand steady on some of the finer details. Next, I went with Sotek Green to try and give some sort of “glow” effect:

Again, not a great effort – and I had to wipe paint away a few times because I had overlapped with the Incubi Darkness. Duncan had recommended adding a third, lighter colour to give some more effect – but I was not confident enough to try this. Instead, I tried to drybrush some Tyrant Skull over the ridges to give that last glow:

It’s definitely not the best effort, but its still better than the mono-colour attempt that I would have done in the past! The paints that I used for this model are:

  • Mechanicus Standard Grey
  • Leadbelcher
  • Balthazar Gold
  • Nuln Oil
  • Mephiston Red
  • Shining Gold
  • Xerus Purple
  • Caliban Green
  • Gorthor Brown
  • Tyrant Skull
  • ‘Ardcoat
  • Incubi Darkness
  • Sotek Green

With the Castellan complete, the Knights were finished! Next up, some “group shots”!
