House Mochrums Desteria Lance

Here we are, House Mochrums Desteria Lance, from theIonAge range. I like these guys, they have more of a ‘Knightly’ feel about them than the regular Prydian Knights.

They are essentially the shock troops of the Prydian Army, with powerful short ranged weapons, a power fist and powered armour.


Painting and Modelling

Well it was 20mm * 3mm Sarrissa MDF with Vallejo Sandy Paste and some sand, as always.

Sprayed Black.

A base of Foundation White, drybrushed Gloss White, a black wash which was mostly ‘dabbed’ off, leaving only the crevices filled.

Then another Gloss White drybrush once that had dried.

Then on the base, a Charred Brown all over with a Bestial Brown drybrush.

Mechanicum Red on the Pauldrons and eye slots, with the eye slots then built up on Vermillion, Orange & Yellow in smaller layers to make the ‘eye visor’ effect.

Polished Gold on the Pauldrons edges, Body cross, Knees & Arm Joints. (And the helm crests where needed)

And because it’s House Mochrum, Magic Blue with a Electric Blue drybrush on the Plumage.

All the weapons are gunmetal grey, highlighted in gunmetal, all very simple.

Thats it, House Mochrums Desteria Lance, quite happy with them, but also the last Prydians I do for a while, going to focus on the Legion for a while now.
