Pretty solid work lately. This is actually where I was at the weekend, I've just been lazy about getting it posted. The Alpha Legion Contemptor is done for now. Still needs some more work on the base, but that's easier to do when I have a bunch of them, so it's waiting until I have a couple of Squads done as well. I also want to get some insignia on there, but my hands haven't been steady enough lately. The main metal layers are done on the SphinxFiend and the DG Helbrutes. I've since started blocking in the blue and green respectively. I'll let the pics take it from here:

So, even tho it wasn't one of the Models I put forth at the start of the month, Sunday evening I got the urge to paint up the Librarian Dread that had been sitting around primed for, idk, a couple of years, probably. There's a lot of bits of touch-up and a few little details that want more work, but I'm more than content to put it on the table at this point. I'm also really not happy with the Force Weapon, but I'm sick of fighting with it, so it's staying like this for now.
I should have some paint on the SphinxFiend and the two Nurgle Helbrutes to show you by this weekend, and the Alpha Legion Contemptor Mortis is coming along nicely as well. Until then, y'all have a good one, y'hear!
|I hadn't realized how bad my pot of Ceramite White had got until I cracked open the new one. The Mechanicus symbol was so much easier than it would have been.|
|The gems and lenses are all done with the GW gem technical paints, except that I just use Blood for the Blood God for the red, since it works and I don't have to buy another paint that way.|
|Not sure why the Librarian Dread has a parchment right where the Chapter Symbol should be shown. I just put the Crimson Thunder Chapter Symbol on the parchment instead|
|I also want to go back in and get some more definition on the sigils in the book. On the left is the Elder Sign, from some of the Cthulhu Mythos spinoff stuff, and the right is a Norse rune used for defense and protection.|

Mostly been working on the two ForgeFiends this week. Haven't got as much done as I would have liked, but I did get some of the tricky stuff that I was worried about out of the way, so I'm pretty happy with the results.
|The Plasma Head still needs some greenstuff work around the bottom, but the rest is ready to prime|
|The base is going to be done with Martian Ironearth/crust|
|This guy still needs some basing work, as the weird way the original owner did the rear legs means it won't sit flat|
|Gonna bust out the cork and get a bit of a slope going for it to stand on|
That's it for now. Until next time, y'all have a good one, y'hear!

Not very visually impressive, but in addition to the obvious basecoat on the Contemptor, I've done a bunch of work adding magnets to the two Fiends, and drilling tons of little pockmarks on the DG Helbrutes for corrosion pitting.
