This is a commissioned piece for the Forge World event only Librarian miniature. If you'd like to learn how to paint this Night Lord's scheme (including tips on how to tackle those tricky lightning strikes) from the comfort of your own home have a look at my series of tuition courses available online.

This model afforded us so many possibilities. The client and I decided to go old school and route out the old field police scheme.

Primarch of the Ultramarines Legion and Master of the Five Hundred Worlds of Ultramar, Roboute Guilliman is an indefatigable warrior, consummate tactician and statesman without parallel. He has forged the XIIIth Legion to be a disciplined and deadly force; one which fights with seamless tactical integration.

His mastery of strategy makes him not only an skilled commander, but also a lethal combatant. An expert in the arts of war, Guilliman possesses a vast selection of weapons and wargear. The most iconic of which include the Hand of Dominion, a unique power gauntlet, the Gladius Incandor, a shimmering blade of great artifice and the Arbitrator, a customised combi-bolter.

An Imperial Knight is a small combat walker that is a one-man version of a Titan. However, a Knight is smaller and less capable in combat than even the smallest class of true Titan utilised by the Titan Legions, the Warhound-class Scout Titan

Knights normally deploy in squadrons comprised of several of these war machines. These ancient battlesuits stand thirty to forty feet tall, are protected by nearly impenetrable Ion Shields and armed with a devastating array of heavy weapons. Imperial Knights are colossal war machines that tower over the battlefield. 

They are propelled into battle by powerful servos and have the power to kick over tanks and crush soldiers into red paste. Vulnerable limbs and joints are protected by sweeping armour plates of adamantium and supported by an incorporated Ion Shield which responds to the thought-commands of its noble pilot. The presence of just one of these towering engines of destruction is enough to change the course of a battle, and only the Titans of the Adeptus Mechanicus are more feared by the enemies of Mankind.

This isn't your usual commission. 

As many of you are aware, I run one to one online painting masterclasses (details here if you would like to apply), through which I met a gentleman who lives in New Zealand. His brother was getting married in the UK, so what better gift could a sibling (and best man) give than a God Machine painted by his own hand? I set aside three days to complete the project and have me guide him through the process of painting such a large scale miniature, tutoring him on real metallics, heat warping effects and freehand litany design. 

Unfortunately the bellicose spirit of the War Hound overwhelmed the best man at the speeches and he ended up screaming 'FOR THE EMPEROR' at a room full of bewildered guests. Don't worry, he wasn't embarrassed, the Nuptias Imperator D plated them off the board.

Many happy returns to the newly Wed couple and the brother who travelled around the world for a panting lesson! Thanks for the socks and the scarf I have now stolen.

The Myrmidon Secutors are ordained priests of the Cult Mechanicum who embody the art of destruction at close quarters utilising the rightly feared Mechanicum weapons technology to further their ends. They keep no master long, instead they are drawn to battle as a vulture is drawn to carrion, seeking fresh challenges to defeat.

He who would set the Galaxy alight. 

Horus was the Primarch of the Luna Wolves Legion, later re-named the Sons of Horus in his honour, and greatest of his superhuman kind. A tactical genius and charismatic battle leader, Horus proved himself over the course of the Great Crusade as a warlord second only to the Emperor whom he served and called father. So it was that when the Emperor stood apart from the burden of command of the Great crusade, it was Horus that he named Warmaster in his stead. But ambition and pride festered within the Warmaster's heart and at Davin he fell, and the lies and corruption of the Warp infected his soul.


++++++++ 


The aim with this miniature was to stress the malevolence of the Warmaster. I wanted to push the contrast in the face and the under lighting to show the darker side of Horus' fall.
