Khorne Bloodletters- Painting Complete

I finished these off with skull bases and after sealing them added Blood for the Blood God paint to the swords.  I really like that stuff.  Easy to use and looks nice and wet after like they'd freshly taken down some marines.  The blades were washed with a watered down baal red too to give a bit of a glow to them.  It's super subtle and the camera didn't capture it well.  It was really hard getting it to focus (I use an old hand held quick cam) but I think you can see the models well enough :)

Khorne Bloodletters- PIP

I picked up a pack of bloodletters and am painting them alongside the 3 riders for my bloodcrushers (you can see the guy standing awkwardly on the far left).  Super quick to paint up with an airbrush and some various coats of red.  I'm still waiting on my Kingdom Death preorder to show up.  Then I'll be swapping over to that stuff I hope.

Emerald Fists Dreadnought Siege Shield

I've seen a few dreadnoughts with close combat weapons and shields and it inspired me to build my own.  I don't have a body to attach this to, but I'm going to put it in my bits box for a rainy day.  I sized it for a contemptor and styled it after boarding marines.

You can see a GW paint pot in the background for scale (about the same size) and it is curved slightly along the Y (vertical) axis.  I'd like to put a hammer probably from a dreadknight in the other hand.  I think it would be very siege/imperial fist like and fit in well with my Emerald Fists.

Nurgle Chaos Army Group Shot

Here's a group photo (sorry I took about 10 pictures and none were in great focus) showing all of my daemons.  This really shows the variation in colours I was going for when painting these.  Since the rest of my marines all need to follow a uniform scheme, this was the experimenting with colours that I wanted.  Being all the same drab shades though ties them together.  Obviously better pictures are featured on the blog if you're interested in seeing something up close, this was just a nice chaosy group shot.  I also put my nurgle stuff up for sale locally to make room for more projects.

Plague Bearers of Nurgle Painted

Continuing with the Nurgle Plague Hulk, I crossed off the last of my unpainted nurgle items.  I had a full Saturday to just to watch some Hell on Wheels and binge paint these guys.  I'm really happy with them.  A two tone base and a few washes did most of the heavy lifting.

Plague Hulk of Nurgle Final - Plus Rust Tutorial

I'm no expert, but I wanted to show how I did the rust on my plague hulk (also write it down so I'd remember).  I've posted some photos for the major steps (sorry not all there since I got excited).  At the bottom you can see the final photos for my Plague Hulk of Nurgle.  Probably one of my favourite models now.

Nurgle Plague Hulk P3

 Some really enjoyable progress here.  Detail shots of all of the body which I think is 'done' now.  You can see some nurgle's rot on a few parts too.  I'm quite happy with the rust overall though.  I went with a boltgun metal base, tin bits stipple, dark brown stipple, light brown stipple, then orange stipple followed by a brown wash, then re stipple orange and then an orange wash.  Sounds complicated but you can't really mess up.

Nurgle Plague Hulk 2

Back to the nurgle...doing some details on the plague hulk.  The plague hulk itself is a mix of browns, yellows and washes.  The guts I tried to go with pastels (bright reds would look too fake I thought) so Talarn flesh and a red wash was sufficient.  I also drybrushed all of the pustules with rotten flesh to make them lighter and look burst ready.

[Dreadtober] Contemptor Dreadnought - Complete

Finished paint job on my 2nd Emerald Fists Contemptor Dreadnought.  The first one is here. The shoulders come from puppetswar (I got them years ago).  I like this guy more than my other 'basic' contemptor since he has more regal bits and seems more deserving of gold trim haha.  I think eventually I want a 3rd one (probably with the forge world Imperial Fists model) holding a shield.  I've got something in the back of my mind for that.  #Dreadtober,

[Dreadtober] Emerald Fists Contemptor Dread Part 2

#Dreadtober update.  Speeding along with the details now.  Some green and gold to really bring out the relic nature and the battle damage is done.  I have to do finishing touches, and finish the base and weapons but I'm narrowing in.  I really enjoy vehicle painting.  They're super fast (see image haha) so you get a product much faster than painting hordes of infantry.
