After a week of painting my Tutelary objectives are finally finished, again for those of you who don’t know Tutelaries were ‘friendly daemons’ (of sorts) that the thousand sons employed as familiars.
I tried several techniques but in the end used the white dwarf tutorial for the spirits on the vampire counts’ mortis engine with 2 alterations, I used the new light blue dry brush paint and finished it off with a coat of the new blue glaze. The end results speak for themselves.
So regarding them each individually…
Raptora; He was converted with the idea that the Raptora are probably the most powerful as they are able to create kinetic shields and move items with telekinesis (which I added as a base detail). I actually based his off the spirit from the Soul Calibur V game.
Pavoni; I was going to use a wood elf sorceress but then the plastic dark elf one came out, I decided to give her a ghost/serpent like tail as it seemed suitable to a cult that has healing powers. The hardest part was attaching her to the base, in the end I glued the end of her tail into the base and painted an effect to make it look like she was emerging through the pillar.
Atheneans; I converted a wraith to look like some kind of dark puppet master given that this is a cult of powerful telepaths. I then planned to add some spikes on his back to give him some more detail but I instead gave him some much cooler looking wings.
Pyrae; Converted from a dark eldar mandrake, I decided to have him floating above the base, thou he’s the only one I had doubts about as he seemed a bit dull compared to the others, but then I painted him! Now I’m debating if I should paint the flames yellow or purple?
Corvidae; This one was a no brainer as the raven is the cult’s main symbol.
So tell me; which is your favourite?
