Sanguinary Guard Conversions

Finally got around to finishing my second Sanguinary Guard squad today, converted using Forge World torsos, helmets and shoulder pads. I realised after taking the pics I’d forgotten to add soot around the jump pack jets so need to go back and do that. Also my first time doing power weapons and jump pack jets by hand – let me know what you think!

    They look awesome! I dig the white faces, what was the idea there? I have never seen that before on SG. Just aesthetic preference?

      Thanks Jo! Yeah just an idea I had. I like the Carmine Blades scheme a lot so as a bit of a homage I do white helmets on a lot of my Veterans / Elites. These guys, my Furioso and (coming soon) my Vanguard/Company Veterans. Considering it for my Space Hulk Termies too…

    Beautiful as always what gold is that

    • Luther says:

      Thanks Thomas! The gold was FW Castellax Bronze base, drybrush all over with Rub n’ Buff Gold Leaf, shade all over with a mix of Sepia ink and gloss varnish. Highlight with Vallejo Metal Medium.

    What I want to know is, what are those helmets? They look very spectacular, but I don’t recognize them.

    Man, these are the best sanguinary guard I’ve seen. Love the rustic gold combo with the white helmets popping. What’s your gold recipe, pray tell? Great work dude

    • Luther says:

      Hi Sergio, thanks very much! Yeah I wanted them to have an ornate / old / worn looking gold armour. The gold was done with a Castellax Bronze base, Nuln Oil wash, then a drybrush with Rub n’ Buff Gold Leaf. Then an Agrax Gloss wash and satin varnish to seal.

        Thanks for getting back to me man. I am a really slow hobbyist, but I’ll credit you on your sanguard when I finally get round to painting my own.
