The Warmaster Horus!

The arch-traitor, heretic, and fallen son, Horus, The Warmaster, Primarch of the Luna Wolves (later the Sons of Horus) is complete.

This miniature, like Feruss Manus before, was huge. He was quite complicated, with lots of detail, broad areas of armor, visible machinery, and a wolf pelt and cape bigger alone than many other miniatures. His base was a nice affair- a broken statue to the Imperium piled over a marble staircase. Like the other Primarch models he has both a standard 40mm base for use on the gaming table, along with a decorative display base. The stone was given a white alabaster marble effect, with gleaming white edges. Skulls barely stand out from the rubble, while twisted girders add some color.

The client wanted Horus’ armor to be black, representing him just after his fall. The deep black and burnished gold and brass contrast nicely with the white base. His wolf pelt and red cape give the character some warmth and motion (and break up a largely monochromatic color scheme).

I included several angles to highlight the details in such a large figure.

Edit: Upon request, I’ve added some closer pics to better show details.

Next: Vulkan, Primarch of the Salamanders!

Horus, the Warmaster

My next big project is the Warmaster, arch-traitor and all-around nice guy, Horus.

Like Feruss Manus before him, this model is huge. He’s smaller than Manus, but still towers over Marine Terminators, even without the statuary he’s standing on. The pics show him ready to prime and paint, on his own and inside his scenic base. The base has a small component that inserts on the back to hide the join of his base to the scenic staircase (need to magnetize it like for Manus’ base).

Updates as I do them!
