Forge World Techmarine
I decided to build the Valthex model as an Ultramarine, replacing the shoulder pads with a techmarine shoulder pad and an Ultramarine shoulder pad from the Space Marine Captain boxed set. I also replaced the whip arms with regular space marine arms. One holding a bolt pistol, the other is holding a slightly modified daemon hammer.
I started out with base coats of GW Boltgun Metal and P3 Hammerfeld Khaki. I then gave the model a wash of GW Devlan Mud. Next I paint the silver areas with GW Chaimail, and the bone areas with P3 Menoth Base. I painted the eyes with layers of P3 Gnarls Green, Iosan Green, Ordic Olive and then a dot of Necrotite Green.
Next the base was painted with layers of GW Scorched Brown, Bestial Brown and then a highlight of Snakebite Leather. The handle of the Deamon Hammer was painted the same way. The blue areas were painted with layers of GW Regal Blue, Ultramarines Blue, a 50:50 mix of Ultramarines Blue and Ice Blue and then an extreme highlight of Ice Blue. The red areas were painted with P3 Sanguine Base, Sanguine Highlight, Khador Base Red and Khador Red Highlight. Finally, the black areas were painted with GW Chaos Black.
