I have been looking forward to and dreading painting this model both at the same time! I was pretty intimidated by him and wasn’t really sure how to get him to fit in with the rest of the Mortifactors army; they’re an official successor Chapter of the Ultramarines but there’s not been that much officially printed material involving them. I’m not entirely sure how closely they follow the Codex Astartes, so I had a bit of a brain-storm with Lord Commander Eloth and he suggested that I use my current Mortifactors paint scheme, but just use blue instead of the cream/yellow combination. Librarians traditionally wear blue power amour.
As with all the other models I have shared lately, he has only been base coated and washed; and the grey on his shoes and knees needs to be worked into a bit more to make it blue. Drakenhof Nightshade isn’t the most blue of washes – I should have remembered this from my Daemonettes! – so that’ll be something to work on in the lighter areas, but has worked rather well on the blue base coat.
I don’t know what an official Mortifactor Librarian should look like so please, don’t leap down my throat if this guy doesn’t fit the imagery of it, this is just my personal take on the Chapter.
