Squaduary 2022 Week 2 Progress - Adeptus Custodes


Adeptus Custodes WIP

Greetings and welcome back for a week two status update on my Squaduary 2022 project.  This week I got some highlights on the gold and red, then painted in all of the blue gems.  I also began detailing the weapons, starting with the gold scroll-work.

The gold armor is pretty much done at this point.  The gauntlets and straps need highlighting, though.

The Vexilla is starting to take shape.  Some text will appear on the scrolls in week three.

The highlights on the robes are really starting to bring out the sharp details in the folds.  The helmet plumes also show more contrast and detail here.

 Lots of detail on these Wardens.  Those ridiculously large axes are so outrageous.  Only in 40k. 😂  I love 'em!

So that's the progress so far.  Head on over to the Squaduary progress page to see more of the great projects going on this month.  Week three is in full swing. Check back next week to see more progress on the Custodes. I need to get the remaining details painted and the highlights done so I can get them based during week 4 of the challenge.

What are you working on this week?  Stay safe out there.

Cheers and Happy Gaming!



  1. Wow I am going to have to speed up, you are flying along. What are you thinking for basing?

    1. I have home-made bases primed and ready to go. Just the stock 40mm GW bases with cork pieces glued down and a little Vallejo Black Lava for texture to hide the cork-i-ness.

  2. Didn't realise just how much detail there is on these models. Great progress!
