My first Cataphractii Terminator Squad, painted back when I was just doing 1000 points with the Pride of the Legion rite of war.

Finally reaching the Infantry! When I was solidifying my color scheme, I decided that basic troops would get the green shoulder pads, and Destroyer Corps would have black... So, where did these guys fit in? Obviously, I decided they were more Destroyers than anything else. Do wish Id paid attention to the rules when building them, though. Cataphractii armor and flamer weapons are not as effective as other types can be...

While I love this model, and how it all turned out in the end, I learned that I really do no care for the Kheres pattern assault cannons. Pain in the butt to assemble, and I still can see that I didnt clean it well enough.
Still, the pose of this model turned out very well, and I really want to expand his Talon to the full three models.

So, yeah... this guy. Pain in the sack to paint, and a few things I am still not happy with. But, it matches my force, and is "good enough for now".
What I really learned from this model is that I REALLY can not paint a straight line. Getting that green stripe across the middle took far longer than it should have. Looked like I was painting on a water bed, and I was sober while doing it! That'll learn me! ;)
The "glass" canopy was another pain. I decided that I have no desire to show off the pilot, so painted over it. Plan was to gloss coat it, to make it look kinda like glass... well, the gloss coat dried with lumpy streaks. :-/

This was surprisingly a fun model to build and paint. Very heavy, though. One thing Im not happy about, is the autocannon barrels. Look at them with naked eyes, and they look good and matched up. Most pics of them, however, look all misaligned. Bah.

Ill be honest. Mortarion intimidated the hell out of me. A Primarch model, and my slap-happy painting style? Yeah.....
Still, I am happy with how he turned out. He isn't pretty, but he matches my army.
