So I do have some painting updates. The first 10 Bloodletters are almost done, will post pics of them when I've done some more cleanup.

In the meantime though I have some other stuff to show you. First up I built my Skarbrand model, I really couldn't help myself. He's a fairly standard build I haven't added the beard plait as I really wasn't into it, he will have his armour plates as well but I've left them off till he's painted.


And I threw together some Warp Talons using parts I got in a trade with Insane Psycopath. I have another 8 of these guys on the sprue so this unit will get bigger at some point.




As always let me know your thoughts.

Januine, ha it really does look like they're dancing. Brilliant!

Tipios. Look forward to what you do with them, I added that skeleton so I could have a rough idea of which one the champ was on the table when it comes to challenges/summoning.

Today I have some scale pics of Skarbrand in case anyone is interested.

So much win! Your skin tones are amazing. You should definitely paint up a Bloodthirster in that pale tone.

So I have an update although not a 40k one. An Age of Sigmar if that's ok? My local club ran a 'zombie apocalypse' theme game today where a group of Heros had to defend a chapel in the centre of a village from a massed horde of zombies who received mass reinforcements every turn. On the 5th turn an artefact was activated which caused the chapel to pulse with (un)holy light meaning the zombies within 6" of it took D3 mortal wounds. So we saved the day basically. :-) This was an awesome and very hard fought game with each player controlling a single model. The only stipulation was it had to be a character model on foot. Man of the match went to Skarr Bloodwrath who racked up a crazy 130 kills! I finished the game on 30 as my Khorne Exalted Hero just enjoyed dying and respawning without actually doing much.

Onto the pics.
Firstly my Lord who I built and painted this week. Pulling an all nighter before the game. He still needs a few touch ups in these pics but they have been taken care of after the game.






As I say I hadn't quite finished the skulls or the base in these pics but I have done now.

Now some pics of the game.

Cheers buddy. I have a box of blood warriors I'll eventually get around to painting them as well to accompany him. I can use my daemons from my 40k as well.

That lord is looking very good, well done mate!!
The one thing that puzzles me is the skull-filled loincloth covering this butt But in any case, congratulations for another very good miniature!! Oh and that axe totally rocks, combining two skull-faced blades.

Thanks guys, Legio, I used the loincloth from the Bloodsecrator from the AoS box. I cut the Khorne icons and armour plates off. It's there to basically cover the gap I had on the Khorne lords legs. Also from the AoS box. Pretty much everything else on the model is from the Bloodwarriors box.

Bottle, Evildrcheese, the game was great fun. We just used the rules for AoS although we skipped the battles hock tests as the zombies would basically run away. Also we had Heros from the different factions working together. The basic premise of the game was to protect the chapel in the centre of the village. If we held out for 5 turns an artefact was activated so the chapel started emitting a (un)holy light which caused D3 damage to zombies within 6" of the building. The Heros then had to escape out the real hate portals, that's didn't happen due to the fact there was only 3 Heros and the sheer weight of numbers against them. We still managed to protect the chapel but died in the process. We're looking at running a 40k version soon.

Started painting a couple of Juggernaughts for my Bloodcrushers last night. Not finished yet obviously but I'm happy enough so far.




I also added a few more details to Skarbrands base. He'll be getting painted after (if) I finish my vow.




And as if I didn't have enough distractions Grizzly Bear has inspired me to have a go at an Abaddon counts as for my World Eaters. Haven't come up with fluff for him yet but in game he will be the Despoiler. Still VERY early days on the build but here he is for your perusal.



I removed most of the eye iconography to be replaced with WE brass etch and shaved the hair back a bit. Like I say still needs a lot of work but happy so far, I'll be adding a couple of bolt pistols to the claw hand and I plan on re posing the fingers into more of a beckoning pose.





And threw together a quick Jump pack Lord.



Thanks for looking folks.

The count as Abaddon and jump lord look fantastic, really characterful. Can't wait to see them with some paint.

I think the banner thing for Abby is an improvement, but I think I prefer the old pose (don't get me wrong, he still looks badass). What promoted the change?

Thanks guys, Edc, I wanted him to be more recognisable as Abby and I also wanted to avoid having all my Termi Lords with the swords in the same hands. Didn't want them to look too similar.

I've been busy working on a Blood Thirster using the spare legs and weapons from the Skarbrand box. I bits ordered another set of Skars wings and a torso and put him together today. I'll need to GS a crotch for him but when I add the loincloth it should cover the majority of the gaps anyway. The arms have been repositioned slightly and will need a bit of filling as well when I get some more GS.

Now I love the description of the Thirster in the old 2ed codex. Describing a massively armoured brute so to that end I've added a helmet to the head. While I like the idea of it as it gives it a gladiatorial feel the bit I've used is a little too clunky. I have a couple of other ideas but have to gather a couple of bits first. The first pic has Skarbrands chest plate but that won't be used on this guy, I have another Bloodthirster plate in a bits box I need to dig out.





Let me know your thoughts folks.

What an absolute menace! I don't think you should change anything about that helmet myself. You're spot on with the gladitorial feel from it, but it also just works perfectly on him in my opinion. Gives a brooding sense of anonymity to him by covering his eyes but leaves his terrifying gob exposed to roar and devour as he pleases But don't let me put you off, whatever ideas you have in mind will probably blow me away just as well. Also the flow of the whip works perfectly with his stride, great build all round mate.

I think some of what you're feeling against the faceplate is because of the edges- namely, that they're so bulky and square. Makes it more clear that the part is meant to be on the torso, rather than sticking up out of the face like that.

It would look wonderful inset into a larger head/face, like if you were doing something Nurgle you could use GS to 'squish' flesh out from the sides, but as this is Khornate...


What I'd suggest is thin that lower jutting lip a tad (on the armour), and bevel the edges of the rest of the mask- that'll make it look more like something meant to go up on the face, and less like a mis-placed chest piece.

Thanks guys.

Anvil dude, I've already shaved the lower lip off the faceplate (it's from the newest knight Titan kit) I've also added his chest armour and loincloth so it's starting to look a lot better that way. I'm now thinking of how I'm going to build up the base to disguise the stand. I'm thinking a dead chaos marine as if the Bloodthirster has just been summoned.

OH

I also think the face pate is a great idea. If you can find a way to incorporate it into the model better (as someone said, make it less like a misplaced chest piece), it would give you a very intimidating model.

Hrm. You gonna do the dead marine as an "Oh no, there's something in side me AAARGHHHhhhhhgbglbgl!" summoning, an exhultant "I have become a DAEMON!" bursting out of his armour/body, or a tied-down, spread-eagled unwilling sacrifice to an unholy ritual?
