+ WIP IT! Custodes Guardian Squad gets some Acrylic Love +

Hello everybody out on the tubes,

Just wanted t drop a quick show and tell to let everyone know that Hashshashin does paint, even though I clearly enjoy modeling and building better. Anyhow this a mid-way WIP of Squad A, or Squad Sword as they are marked on their Rhino.

The Gold is airbrushed three colors of: Shining Gold from GW, Gold fro m the Vallejo Model Air line, and lastly a light dusting of Bright Brass from Model Air as well. All of these are over a brown base coat.

Then the whole thing is washed with GW Sepia to re-goldify it and blend the Air Brush layers, afterwhich I will add line highlights of gold or Bright Brass dependeing on the local. The Red is still in progress, and will be getting a bit more Blood Red before I do some washing and weathering along the bottom edge wear the robes/capes would be dragging on the ground.

^ This guy is the only one who I have started on the face .^ So far it's is just the GW foundation flesh color (I forget the name and don't feel like descending into the dungeon right now. maybe Tallarn flesh or something???). The faces are so small that I don't think they will be that hard to paint but I am curious how it will look because it is the only flesh on the model and is teeny-tiny.

So here's the last two guys in the squad, another Halberd and the counts-as Psi-Cannon dude.

Anyways always looking forward to any comments or criticism. Particularly is the gold "gold" enough? I think it works and is unique to most other golds I have seen, which was one of the goals. Thanks again for stopping by for Buddy Times and we'll see ya on the tubes.


  1. You hit the nail on the head 'I think it works and is unique to most other golds I have seen' it looks great.

  2. Amazing. Your painting seems to be almost as good as your modeling.

  3. Hey thanks for compliments guys. I am about to go done into the dungeon to avoid some of this heat we're having today and get some more painting done, so hopefully I'll get some more pics up soon-ish

  4. love the Psycannon in particular, and glad to see i am not the only one doing them like that! not custodes, just marines, but feel free to check out mine.

  5. Those are about the best Custodes I've seen. The gold is perfect. Gold, but not too clean and shiny. I'm off to see if there are any articles showing the build of these guys.

  6. A really good post man, very thankful and hopeful that you will write many more posts like this one.
