I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while and show my Adeptus Custodes collection. These are some fantastic miniatures and where an absolute joy to paint, though I did find them quite challenging at times. Originally they where going to be Solar Watch, but the white armour just proved too challenging at the time for me to paint. The army ended up in storage for a good 6 months until I got them out again and decided it was time to have another attempt.
I stripped the miniatures using methylated spirits (this was before I discovered Bio-strip) and after cleaning them up as best I could, pressed on with this revised scheme. I settled for black tassels and detailing over the default red, after a happy accident in which I decided I liked the black more. Of course I kept Trajann Valoris, Valerian and Aleya in their default schemes. Due to the black detailing, on the table top this army runs as the Dread Host.
The majority of bases where produced using the greenstuff world rolling pins and all models on flight stands have been attached via magnets to stop everything breaking during transport.
Without further adieu, here is my Adeptus Custodes Collection. Let me know what you think. 😀
