Word Bearers: The Ashen Circle

Hey all, it’s Eric.  So now things get interesting.  The Ashen Circle are some of my favorite models.  The level of detail is truly impressive, there’s all this ornate iconography that really sell their theme of religious zealots charged with destroying books, and icons they deem heretical.

The images below are just the first 5 of a 10 man squad I plan on doing.  Forge World showed them in the grey of their previous heraldry and I thought that having them in all red would overpower the great detail on the models.  Therefore,I kept the grey, but accented them with red to help tie them into the rest of the army.

I also will usually differentiate the squad leader in some way, in this case, I painted his helmet completely gold, instead of just on the ridge of the helmet.  Enjoy!
