Captain Cato Sicarius

Ladies and Gentlemen, guys and girls, here is, my secret model... Captain... Cato... Sicarius!
Former captain over the Ultramarines 2nd company, and now the Dark Masons Chapter Master. :-D

This is what i practised blending for, and i actually think that he is the best model ive ever painted.
In the beginning I painted him in the Dark Masons colour but it simply didnt give me the right feeling, i mena he IS an Ultramarine, and he WEARS the mantle of the suzerein so...

If anyone is interested, i panted the armour in the following way:

start with enchanted blue all over the armour except on the shadowed zones (I held him under a lamp to see were the shadows fell) and then give it a heavy badab black was, then apply more blue a bit over the dark blue, then wash again (all over, to darken the first layer even more) then pure enchanted blue.
After that, i strtaed to blend in ice blue and worked up to pure ice blue. For the final highlight: Skull white.

Gold was painted like this:

Dwarf bronze basecoat, heavy Badab black and Devlan mud wash. then highlight with Dwarf bronze and then work it up through shining gold and chainmail.


6 5 4 4 3 6 3 10 2+ (4++)

Wargear: Iron halo, plasma pistol, Frag and Krak, Mantle of the Suzerein (artficer armour, bestows Feel no Pain upon Sicarius), Talassarian tempest blade (power weapon, can in lieu to normal attacks make a single S 6 atk that inflicts instant death).

Special rules: And they shall know no fear, Combat tactics, Independent character, Rites of battle (every space marine can use sicarius Ld for pinning- and morale tests), Surprise attack (can re-roll the D6 for seizing initiative) and battle forged heroes (a tactical squad in sicarius army may have one of the following: counter attack, scouts, infiltrate or tank-hunters.

I think that this may fit well in my infantery-based army, maybe leading an honour guard (remember that he is the Dark Masons chapter master) or a vanguard squad, well see.

If u want to know anything else regarding the paintjob or the model, just post a comment ;)

Trying my hands on blending, on a dwarf!

Hey and hello!

As u probably know i were in Stockholm during the weekend and bought that secret model...
I wanted to paint it with anjas tecnique, blending and decided not to go on the real model directly, i wnated to try my blending skills (and improve them) on a test model, and what model fits that role better than a BFSP dwarf?
Another funny thing with this model is that i didnt use any metallic colours, but i think it looks pretty good anyway :-).

Enjoy the pics and wait for the "big guy" to arrive!

GW Stockholm 10 years!!

Hey and hello.

I were in Stockholm during the weekend, and of course I HAD to check out the 10 years anniversary.
When i walked up the street ouside the "Galleria" I saw a man in eldar (saim-hann, i think) dress heading for the shop, and when i came a little bit closer, I saw a pouring flood of people running into the building, and even if it already was extremely crowded, everyone seemed to find a last centimeter of room.
Even me and my friend managed to get in!

Both Jes Godwinn, one of the studios best designers, and Anja Wettergren, a swedish éavy metal painter was there, anja showing her paintjobs, and Jes walking around (i didnt see what he did).

I took a few walks arond the shop, and then stoped in front of anjas models, my favourite was - without any doubt - the dreadlord, same dreadlord who appeared in the WD in the masterpainter article about her.

I wanted to buy some FW models but i didnt have the money :-(, actually i only bought one model and some paint and greenstuff.

Im noy going to say what model i bought, but i will show HIM when finished here on the blog so, keep your eyes open!
