Sort of a rush job here so I'm not super happy with it, but thought I'd share. I was a bit excited when the lantern armour involved clubs and the campaign I was on actually made 2 pieces of lantern armour and rushed this guy out. Gorm club is really ugly. I have more important models to paint anyway :)
An'ggrath the Unbound, Guardian of the Throne of Skulls, Most Favoured of Khorne, Lord of Bloodthirsters, the Deathbringer. Many names, many victims. This model is awesome! He's validated himself and can stand proud among my khorne warband now. It's past midnight though and I don't have much to say so here's a dozen or so photos. I'm still debating if I should add blood to the axe. Once it's sealed I'll gore up the dead guy though for sure.
I'd originally painted the oval base in a batch with all of my other skull bases so I had to paint these skulls separate. Sadly I'm out of the old GW bone paint and shade so the colours don't match quite the same. We'll see how it looks once the daemon gets mounted when the washes dry.
To help tilt the model up a bit I've added an inch to the left foot. To fill this in, I used a space marine corpse and then buried him in skulls. Pretty fitting solution to both jazz the base up a bit and rotate the model up a bit.
Working on the tarnish. Less is more I guess, but still need enough to see it and dull the bronze. I'm also working on the whips which need to be reheated and bent to fit better. I sort of did that after half painting them and all the wash came off! Oh well restart!
More of the details done, I just need to get to work on the wings and tarnish the bronzes. A very satisfying model thus far to paint. I'm also thinking up what I'm going to do with the base because I don't like that he is declined so much and staring at his feet.
With the red down, it's time to move on to the bronzes. I've done a bit of the accents as well. Bronze is tin bitz, two golds, mithril silver then a wash of gryphonne followed by mithril. Oxide I'll do at the end.
