My favourite Horus Heresy model

Ok, having collected Heresy since before the rules came out, I have a lot of stuff...probably too much stuff. I’ve painted five armies to over four thousand points and a lot more in some instances. After a while I realised I got tired painting endless legionaries. So I started to paint a few of the characters for the legions I don’t do. I bough all the Primarchs and am slowly working my way through them, but that’s a story for another day.

No, today I talk about my favourite model to paint, some might be surprised to find it is a model from a Legion I don’t have. Ladies and gentleman, I give you the stunning, Alexis Pollux!

I love the pose, subtle, shows the sculpt off, yet dynamic and heroic

The shield makes the model

Lots of weathering helps the rich yellow tones

Love the base too, very detailed and can draw the eye

I loved painting this figure and would do it again, everything seemed to come together. I’m really happy with it, the armour needed a fair bit of airbrushing and so did the lights on the steps. A sponge was a must for the weathering too. Alexis lives in my display cabinet until I decide to give him some mates!


  1. Lovely work! Polux is a great sculpt and you've done a fantastic job with him!

  2. Thanks for the compliment, I enjoyed painting him and I'm happy with the result
