Let's get some paint on these bad boys !

Last friday, we held a Midnight Pre Release for the next Nagic: The Gathering set. So once all the players were all settled, I had about six hours to myself in the wee small hours !

I decided that this would be a good chance to get all the gold painted on all of the Custodes I have so far, including my Contemptor Dreadnought. So here is what I have so far:

Gold Recipe:

2 x coats of Brazen Brass
1 x Devlan Mud Wash
1 x Drybrush Brazen Brass
1 x Drybrush Brazen Brass & Glorious Gold (Vallejo) 50/50
1 x Glorious Gold (Vallejo)
1 x Drybrush Mithril Silver
1 x Gryphonne Sepia Wash

Custodian Guard - Parts List

Ok, so I am sure that I will be asked this, so here is a run down of parts for a "Basic" trooper:

Plastic High Elf Pheonix Guard "Skirt"
Plastic High Elf White Lion "Boots"

Sanguinery Guard Torso front & back

Various Marine armes with, Chaos Warrior gloves

Shoulder Pads:
Sanguinery Guard and plain, with B/Angel 'Wings'

All from the Grey Knight Power Armour Box

Plastic High Elf Pheonix Guard

White Lions with Green Stuff or D/Elf Cold one riders

Phew !

CUSTARDS !!!!!!!!!!!!!! - sorry "Custodes"

So a New Year brings a new project (well several actually, but this one has actually been started!)

A few years ago (7 in fact) i made my first Custodian Guard squad, which appeaed in Dave Taylors article in the US edition of White Dwarf 300.

In the time since then, I have always had an idea to get an entire army up and running, and since the releas of the Grey Knight Codex, and many new plastic kits, I now feel I haqve the parts and rule set to do them justice.

I will stop waffling now, and show you some piccys !

A 'Constantin Valdor' type Character (counts as Brotherhood Champion)

Squad 1 (counts as Strike Squad)
Squad 2 (counts as Strike Squad)

Sisters Of Silence (Counts as =I= Crusaders)

There is a lot more to come - More troops, the =I= and warband, Landraider "Emporers Gift", Rhino and Contemptor Dreadnought (which Is actually built, but Forgeworld forgot to add any shoulders !!)
