I’m liking how the dark Stormcast is looking. The orange would help tie them in with the dark powers quite nicely, even if getting the balance right on OSL is a fine line.

The new BattleMasters archer is HUGE compared to the original! The dark powers must be slipping steroids in to the water supply!

And to repeat what others have already said, that green on Hulk is amazing!

Theophony,

Ah, the dreaded repainting. You will almost always be so much happier with the redone paint jobs and wonder why you did not do it sooner.

Cheers,

Thanks guys.

Hulk is one of my favorites that I have done in recent years.

The repainting continues. I tackled a Bloodbowl chaos warrior to try out the skin tones I may use for the chaos warriors.

I wanted to go for a cold bloodless look, might have gone too far.

A blue or purple tint to the skin, or green if you want it sickly. Otherwise it looks fine.

Looks rather Elric of Melnibone to me Albino would be an interesting look for an army.

Definitely not going for the sickly. Think I’ll probably stay the course though.

Thanks, they definitely fit the bill. No misunderstanding here .
Llamahead wrote:Looks rather Elric of Melnibone to me Albino would be an interesting look for an army.

Oooooooo Elric . Hadn’t thought about that.

Little bit of work on the Khorne guy.

Thinking of giving the eyes a red wash.

Some details to finish up, and now I’m thinking of doing the martial red colored sand basing.

Edit: bit of an update, have four guys in the works, going with that skin tone I think. Let me know if it’s a good contrast. With the very monochrome scheme the bluish skin draws the attention towards the faces.



I don’t have the Martian Ironearth/crust technical paints. The question becomes will the red basing draw too much attention from the models. Also if anyone has used other alternatives to the GW ones, let me know especially if they are cheaper and come in larger containers.

Those guys are looking very cool. Going red for the eyes will look sweet. I think your basing choice will work, as well.

Khorne guys look cool, it's weird at first seeing them so sombre, but somehow they look more menacing that way. Not like some charging maniacs, but controlled berzerkers, if that makes sense.
I'll second the red eyes and a red base. It'll give a nice contrast and complement the blueish skin.

Theophony,

Well the human eye is always drawn to the face of a model, (that is way all my 300 guardsmen have their eyes painted) so the blue tinged heads works.

Sorry for the late response guys, struggling to get over the new year.

Almost pulled the trigger today on a purchase, trying to be good, then after walking away from it I realized the deal is REALLY good. So I’m picking it up tomorrow before work. Older start collecting Khorne Bloodbound (Slaughter Priest, 3 Khorne knights on Juggernaughts and 10 Blood Warriors) basically half price and a big 200ml bucket of red oxide texture.

I’ll try and post picks in an hour or so when I’m home, I dug out some old chaos dwarves and started them in this same color scheme.
Edit: Chaos Dwarves

Could only find one loader for the two bazookas. Also found a large hat wearing guy with a horn. Not sure what they could be used as, but they are just fun as is.

Yeah, never had intent on buying chaos dwarves, was just going to use them in my Iron Warriors army.

Hoping the colors work on more exposed flesh as the Slaughterpriest (Totally not a psyker ) has lots of exposed flesh.

Here’s the purchase.


Off to that job thing

Looking good Theo! I got into MCP recently as well and painted up most of the starter set over Christmas. As a new year resolution, I'm going to curb acquisition of new games and minis in 2020, and focus on completing some of my backlog instead....I'll start by resurrecting my PLOG here on Dakka and tracking my progress there.

Keep up the great work, it's nice to see you consistently cranking stuff out!

I like your take on Chaos Warriors-- they look better, I think, than the bright primary colors you see so often. Also, nice Chaos Dwarfs. I'm old enough that I prefer the pre-Big Hat versions.

Now showing the rest of a Z'zor team for Dreadball! And also some miscellaneous fantasy models!




Painting Total as of 2/20/2020: 28

I’ll be right over to check them all out. I still need to work on mine, but Khorne demands attention and I’m more afraid of him than Spider-Man .

No one enjoys a job. If they do then they have fooled their boss into paying them for doing something fun. A job is doing something that others don’t want to do themselves and being compensated for doing so. It I should not meant to be fun. Big hat below.

Yep, I honk if GW would release just a sprue of gigantic hats they could rake in some dough as I’m sure chaos marines with big hats would quickly become a thing .

Well I promised a big hat.

Hope that blows your horn. He will get painted eventually.

Redoxide paste basing. I orepainted the base Khorne red so I could say every model in the army has Khorne red on it . It will all be covered up by the basing paste and the trim will get a new color too. Probably black.

I think the bases still need some more decoration. I have wasteland basing tufts and some red sand vase filler which may get added here and there.

Also size comparison of Magore and the slaughterpriest (not Khorne mage ).

He isn’t a big boy. Magore’s bunny ears only comes up to the chin on this guy .

Just thinking now that I may have to repaint my Zombicide bunnybombination to be one of these guys pets .

I’m glad it’s dynamic. I’m adding the stones to give the little grey guys some more movement as all Khorne guys should be constantly on the move to the next fight.

Nice take on the chaos warriors, the dark metallic scheme gives them a more menacing look. A friend went for a similar armour scheme on the old chaos warriors but replaced the helmets with glowing skulls - lost the menacing look as some of the skulls looked hilariously small
