Shipping is understandably a bit slow right now, so while I can’t finish Narses until a selection of blue paints arrive I can still plug away at the rest of his base coat. With a dash of good luck I’ll be able to book him in April rather than May.
My go-to Blood Angels accent color is gold, but I pay attention to the studio paint jobs and they often use other colors more often than gold (reserving the gold for veterans, special figures, etc.). I liked how that worked out on Squad Karios, on whom I used black for most accents, so where I’d normally have done all of Narses’ skulls, keys, and whatnot in gold I decided to follow the studio scheme and make them silver and white.
I’m not sure I’ll be able to pull it off, but I’m looking forward to attempting the 50/50 white/black paint job on the small Cog Mechanicum on Narses’ rear armor (currently just bare primer surrounded by red). It looks like a fun challenge.
The Unlucky Isles [affiliate link], the first system-neutral guidebook for my Godsbarrow fantasy campaign setting, is now on DriveThruRPG.

That base is hellacool. Nice work. Also, that mini is nuts. I’ll have to show it to my wife and see if she can come up with a funny reason that guy got turned into a killer Tonka toy.
Thanks! I love doing bases. I can’t wait to build my Redemptor Dreadnought, because he’s on a 90mm (I think?) base and that is a HUGE canvas.
The old-school “refrigerator box of death” Dreads (like Narses) are one of my favorite things in 40k. So imposing!
I got it. He’s like a RoboCop trashman. Watch out!
Weirdly . . . yeah! He is an undead cyborg, just like RoboCop.
