Snowy days mean painting…plus a wrap up!
So, lots of pictures of hobby progress for today. Today, I have been working on the Dark Vengeance Chaos Lord. He’s a cool model I have been figuring out exactly how to paint. So I finally sat down and said “screw it” and put brush to paint and let it develop. It ended up looking good and I am happy with it. It’s not gonna win a painting competition, but it’s something that I think fits my style, I like, and will add to my army. I am glad to get him painted because I have needed a regular power-armoured HQ model (though I guess I realistically COULD just use a regular old CSM and call him a power armor lord or sorcerer…or really even a Dark Apostle if he has a maul). I have continued to work on my possessed and mutilators, as well as my CSMs. I love the possessed…they are terrible in the game, but one of the coolest looking models and a BLAST to paint as they combine the curved smooth parts of cold ceramite armor on textured daemonic skin. There are eyes and helmeted eye-slits. Guns, swords, claws, and spikes they have pretty much every texture and surface you could hope for. I feel vindicated as I hear of others painting models because they like them as a friend of mine, Thor over at Creative Twilight, just posted this article.
So, onto the pictures!
I still have to do the tassles on the end of his sword.
My possessed have seen less progress. The basic color scheme is done for them all with only a single completely finished.
My mutilators have seen a fair bit of progress. They seem to be in a linear progression when laid out, with one finished, one about 70-80% and the last about 40-50%.
However, I have made a few advancements on my chaos lord of Nurgle. I like the way this guy is turning out. Always would love more ideas. Looking something to make his armor REALLY pop.
Lastly, I have spent an abysmal amount of time pounding through power armored dudes. Here they are, many very close to being done. HOORAY!!!
Oh, and my warpsmith, who has seen a little bit of washes and a few minutes here and there of work getting him ready for some high and low lights.
Well, thanks for reading. My CSMs are going along at full speed and I like how they are looking right now. At first I didn’t like the quartered color scheme en masse, but now I really do. It sets them apart from many armies. I continue to like the heat effects on the black portions of the armor.
