Luckily I can do both at the same time , without the quality dipping any lower than my usual level.

Weather was warm enough to prime my new guys before I left for work. Temp is plummeting as we speak and snow/ice expected this weekend.
In the mean time I worked on the basing as I was t impressed with straight red oxide paste. So I added a coating of Carromburg Crimson was to make it more red than orange. Army painter tuft also.

Then started the skin on the Bloodbound Garrick’s reavers war and from underworlds.

They are also being repainted from before. One more layer of skin to highlight before I start the rest of the model.

Also looking at the next phase purchase for this army. I need to wait till I get more painted up before I buy.....those words have never come out of my mouth before .

Thanks Syro, well hopefully you won’t wait long.

Started the Slaughter Priest when I got home from work. Here he is an hour later

Not very much done, just three layers of skin and a shade. Some metals started as well. I’m liking how he’s coming along.

Also, Hulk is inspiring me with an idea . It’ll be a while for that though.

That Hulk is GAMMA GREEN.

I like the direction you are taking these Khorne bloodbound. They are seriously heavy metal styled minis, and your approach emphasises that over the more cartoony GW style.

Hard to take the Bloodbound seriously when they look like PG13 super villains. Kool Aid for the Kool Aid god, graham crackers for his throne.....right after nap time .

I’m not going to lie, I really want to throw one hazard stripes on these guys , especially big bad here. He’s just screaming for oldschool jump pack that look like turbines and some sort of Plasma gun to lay siege to the walls of the Emoeror. Wonder if I can get another of these old start collecting boxes . I can always use more troops and Juggs.

Well, I couldn’t find another of those start collecting boxes. They were the 2018 ones I believe, but my LGS is having 15% off and I’ve been eyeing their 2015 AOS starter boxes for $125. Was just a little more than I wanted to spend, but with 15% off (plus I just earned $10 in store credit from it) it was a no brainer. $115 (plus $10 credit earned) basically got me 2 start collecting boxes plus some special characters.

I’ll post contents later, but that’s 29 Khorne dudes (4 special guys) and 18 Sigmarines including mounted Lord-celestant on Dracoth.
Edit:
Contents picture for sake of showing.

20 Bloodbound
5 Blood Warriors
Blood Secretor (Big circular banner guy)
Blood Stoker (guy with whip, missing a hand but had a sword shoved into the stump for reasons)
Khorne Lord with pet Flesh hound
Khorgorath (Dumbest model I’ve seen since Pumbagore)

Lord celestant on dracoth (think he might get the Khorne treatment)
3 winged sigmarines
3 sigmarines with really ornate hats and big hammers that shoot? WTF?
10 hammer time sigmarines
1 Sigmarine who wishes he could have died and become a skeleton .

Pretty nice bunch. Still trying to decide if I’ll chaosify the Sigmarines or not.

Edit: got home, massive storms, painted for about an hour. So here I should the progress.

The question is do I add red to my palette? His loincloth and straps on the back of his leg armor? Or do I stay away from red altogether?

And then the mornings work on the Slaughterpriest



Tried something basic and silly on the loincloths. I held the model upside down because in my mind shadows defy gravity .

Getting there.

Thanks everyone, means a lot with all the comments. I know the reason I overlooked chaos for so long was that the models couldn’t match the art. That and all the new Khorne Bloodbound humans looked way too muscled, and not in a cool He-man way. I’m hoping the color change helps as the reds were just too much.

In the mean time, Khorne demands assembly, he doesn’t care how much blood is spilled in the process. And with all these sharp pointy parts there is definitely blood being spilt.

The Khorgoroth is as dumb in real life as in the artwork. Seriously they could have given it more proportional legs and it would work, but the body is so wide and only so thick .

Also the two leader guys are based.

Also have the other two Juggernauts based, no picture as the wash was drying and still needed the scrubs added.

I don’t play anything anymore, but these are just looking fun to paint.

I hope Khorne is pleased, I stayed up till 1a.m. Assembling the rest of the Khorne Bloodbound guys.

Hey Theo, Loving the vast array of chaosy goodness you've got going on. The pale skin really works for those Khorne guys! It's something you don't see much of but it works so well. Especially with the metal armour.

And good score on the 2015 starter box. Hard to pass up a bargain like that.

Thanks Snrub, almost wish I had more cash right now to have grabbed a second one of the starter set, luckily they still have 4-5 more that I can wait on.

I missed out on Gorechosen, but at the time I had no desire to do the knorne stuff. Marvel will happen here soonish.

You got the starter set too , can’t wait to see your take on them.

So Jugger2 almost done, just realized I haven’t added the scrub brush yet.



I’m on the edge about adding some more color. As it is I did a bronzish color on the juggers collars, but I’m thinking of adding the skin color onto the shields, but not sold on the idea.

Looking good. I don't know about using the skin color, but you could hit the shield rune with some brass/bronze. You could also try filling the runes on the flanks in a different color. Red or a warm metallic?

The shield runes going to Bronze was another idea I had, I wasn’t sold on using the skin tone on the shield as that would look too forced I think. Thanks

Well finished the third juggernaut


And all four completed models together (minus the shield runes)


With these out of the way it’s time for LOTS of blocking in of metals .

They looks ace but I'm with youwashock - I would colour up the icons. Red, or dark copper to keep the solid metal look. It'll really pop.

You're certainly putting my progress to shame Theo, an impressive start to the year! Agree with you and others that a little splash of colour would help the juggers. As another option, some blood splatters could add a bit of colour if you can't be bothered with the more fiddly job of painting the runes

Lovely work on the Khorne guys, the pale skin is wonderful. It's like they're so Khorne that they've given all their blood to the Blood God already!

As others have said, the bigger models do call for some additional color. I'd probably go for some metallic, and leave red out all together from the models. Speaking of which, the Slaughterpriest's red pouch is hogging too much attention, I feel. Maybe paint it in a more neutral color? Or add it somewhere else as well.
