To begin with, I started painting my tactical marines, bringing them up to a full ten man squad. My next plan was to convert and start painting a squad of assault marines but suddenly, I had an epiphany.
I had never painted a model in Terminator armour.
It's worth letting that sink in for a second (or at least it was for me). I like to think of myself as a fairly experienced hobbyist. I have four sizeable armies and have been playing for years across multiple editions of 40k. I've painted infantry, monstrous creatures, vehicles (ok, not many, but vehicles are hard!) and flyers but never once a model in terminator armour. Needless to say I resolved to change this immediately and have a full squad of Night Lords Cataphractii painted up as soon as possible. The pictures here (apologies for lighting) show the first completed member of the squad.
The reaper autocannon was made from two Anvil Industry autocannons glued back to back. I think it gives a nice Heresy feel to the model and is very reasonably priced!
The rest of the model is the basic Terminator kit with a couple of skulls added for a Night Lords feel. I'm very pleased with the overall result.
