Kingdom Death - Phoenix Armour WIP

We've done a lot of phoenix killing so I need a model to represent that armour now.  For a weapon the Rainbow Katana fits on the model really well and it's a sweet sword to build into.  I'm going make this guy really vibrant.

Kingdom Death - Bone Armour

I wanted to try out a bone armoured person that could use Bone Earings - which precludes the use of non bone items.  There are not that many bone items in the base game, but it does get you some decent high attack high strength knuckle weapons.  Anyway this character was inspired by this set up and is set to punch her way to victory - if she doesn't get her arms chewed off by screaming antelopes that is.

Folding Gaming Table Set Up

Took a long time (sorry) but I finally took a picture of the folding gaming table I built in action.  In progress shots are here.  It measures 5'6" x 3'6" and fits Kingdom Death well enough.  We do need to work on our organizational skills though ahaha

Forge World Khorne Daemon Prince Painted

This guy is such a sick model.  Skulls for the skull throne!  The trophy skulls everywhere are awesome and the brass armour is sweet.  This guy really screams being the to guy on the totem (or skull pile).

Forge World Khorne Daemon Prince - WIP

Working on the daemon prince.  I was a bit sad that these didn't have wings, and I did look around for a spare set, but I didn't see a good way to attach them, and I didn't want to tamper with such a sweet forge world model.  I'm working on the gold.  The plan is tin bitz, dwarf bronze, two golds and then mithril.

[Action Shot] The Blood Reaver vs Ork Mob

Lord Kraxen the Blood Reaver charges headlong into a disorganized mob.

I took this photo a while back and it may just be the last 40k game I ever play.  Even getting this game in with a buddy was pulling teeth.

More photos of Lord Kraxen here:

Kingdom Death - Phoenix Painted!

I'm done with my phoenix!  Well mostly;  I need to add some coloured coral to the bottom to make it look like he's nesting but I'm waiting on that to show up (friend has some).  Anyway on to all of the pretty pictures!  This evil monster can control time, aging and rejuvenating its enemies at will.  It also has a nasty habit of dropping turds on everyone.  Lots of creepy pustules and hands in the armpits and all over the place. These apparently are parasitic hands which is why so many of the monsters in this game have them growing all over them.  Such a messed up universe!

Kingdom Death - Phoenix WIP 3

Skin tones being worked on.  I went with a pale flesh tone to not contrast overly with the bright wings.  It was also a bit hard to discern where the beak stopped so I just drybrushed bone and black up from the tip until I was satisfied.

Kingdom Death - Phoenix WIP 2

Once all of the wash dried, I went back and dry brushed the textures back into the feathers.  I basically took the same colours (blood red, blazing orange and golden yellow) followed by skull white I'd used on the base coat, and dry brushed 'one up' toward the darkest red.  Next up, flesh tones.

Kingdom Death - Phoenix WIP1

The start of the great phoenix!Originally I had thought I'd do some sort of tropical bird colouring but after googling images, the real birds looked 'fake' so I couldn't help but think my paint job would too.  I'd also seen a few dark painted versions of the phoenix that looked like ravens.  While the world is supposed to be 'dark' I thought it was a missed opportunity for me to experiment with some cooler colours.  So I ultimately fell back on the namesake and went with a flaming colour scheme.
