    Redstar's Sons of Horus - Start to Finish

    Well, after the passing of my son around this time last year and then the passing of my wife, Sarah just last month, I've been rather closed off emotionally. After getting alot of support from the various forums, namely BoLS, Warseer and Heresy Online, its time to try and focus on the positives in life. Remember the good memories and not the bad.

    With that in mind, ive decided to start this blog. It will cover all things modeling from converting, which will be a major focus to painting and sculpting. I plan to start small with a Son of Horus force I've had in the works the past few days. After that Ill move onto a few larger conversions and scratch builds such as a Chaos Fellblade along with other Chaos super heavies.

    I just hope that this blog and the work done for it can even remotely make Sarah proud of me, in whatever place she may be. If it wasnt for her support after our son passed, I'd have given up the hobby all together.

    This is for you Sarah and Erin.

    So now onto the first unit. I plan to use BA rules for the stormraven. I went with a silverish sea green. The current pics are a bit dark but you can get some nice views of the base, modified from a Dragon Forge base.









    More pics can be seen as well as future tutorials on weathering the beast shortly at the blog. Miniature Wargame Conversions

    I hate to hear of your passing, I cant imagine how it must feel.

    The models thought are truly amazing. Can't wait to see more.

    I'm deeply sorry for your loss. The most important thing is to focus on the happy memories and remember that there are people here to help you through your time of need. On the lighter side of things, amazing work here. Hope to see a lot more in the future.

    Thanks mate for the kind words and support.

    You will indeed be seeing a full army of the Sons of Horus. Its what motivates me to wake up each day.
