Iron Hands Legion Praetor - work in progress

Ever since forgeworld released their Legion Praetor set a while back, I've had my eye on it. A few months ago I finally picked the kit up with the intention of making the power armored Praetor a foot Chapter Master, and the terminator armored Praetor a kitted out Librarian. Now, having nearly wrapped up work on my Devestator Centurions, I decided to pick these two models and try to get some work done on them.

As with the rest of my Iron Hands, I went with a muted dark grey/black base color and all silver metallic components. I wanted to make them look basic and utilitarian (by Astartes standards), like a machine that's well maintained as opposed to gilded with superfluous ornamentation. To make these guys stand out as HQs I decided to add some gold to their weapons, which isn't used anywhere else in the standard troops. I think it'll be a small detail that pops out on the tabletop.

First up the power armored Praetor. I'm not even close to being done with sword, its going to take a lot more precise blending but it's off to a good start.

 The terminator armored Praetor only really has paint on his face so far, which I left separate so I could access the details a little more easily.

While I'm not planning on playing 30k at the moment I just can't resist purchasing some of Forge World's amazing Horus Heresy models, and this kit did not disappoint. I'm hoping to keep cranking away on these guys and have them done in the next week or two.
