Tribune Ixion Hale

My latest commission paint job is Tribune Ixion Hale of the Legio Custodes. This is a Forge World Horus Heresy miniature that can only be acquired at events and at Warhammer World.

I’m famously not a big fan of resin miniatures, and I’m really not sure what madness overcame me when I agreed to take on this commission. Ixion Hale has an insane amount of fine detail, and the client wanted full nmm so I knew I was in for the long haul! This is the first Forge World miniature I’ve painted that has been digitally sculpted and I have to say that it did improve the experience somewhat compared to the last time. It’s still a complete pain to work with compared to plastic though!

The colours were quite carefully planned and agreed before I started painting. In the end this commission took more than a hundred hours of work. I switched to using the current citadel line for the gold nmm: base coat of 1:1 balor and mournfang, highlighted with balor and bone, shaded with doombull and black. I did take some pictures during the painting so I’ll try and post some step by step on this piece when time allows. 🙂
