Slaughterpriest (Part 2)

"Bloody skulls for the bloody guy!!!"

Sounds like I have a decent war cry for this giant Cult Leader, even though I have yet to come up with a name for him. I have, between projects, managed to slap some color onto him however. First I primed the model in Chaos Black spray and then I worked on the foundation coloring for the base.

Primed and color on the base.
Following the steps I pulled from a White Dwarf (and first used by me on my Bolt Action British Infantry) for painting Caucasian flesh, I based coated the fleshy bitz in Bugman's Glow.

And followed it up with a coat of Cadian Fleshtone.

This was followed by a sloppy wash of Reikland Fleshtone ink. Also, you might notice in these pics that I was painting up the skulls on this miniature during these stages as well.

Next, I wanted to get some of the other areas painted before putting the final colors of flesh on the model. Mostly because I wanted to avoid getting any other color on it. First, I used scab red as a basecoat for the armor. I am going to the paint the armor bits so that they are uniform (in color, not quite style) with the Khorne Berserkers  that I have been working on. I am resisting the temptation to leave him like this...I think that scab red works really well on this guy!

I then painted Balthasar Gold on the areas that will be golden/bronze.

That's it for now, I should have this chap finished soon.

Given the color of his armor, you should name him Mauve'n.

Oh that's just his base coat. It's not that color anymore.

BTW, has anyone noticed the mistake I made? 😉

Da Masta Cheef said...

Are you referring to the typo or the use of that god-awful pistol?

neverness said...

I sure there are plenty of typos. And the autopistol is intentional. No, it's a painting error that I am referring to.

Good job, he looks very well.

As its a WIP, I assume that any glaring paint issues will soon be corrected, so no not seeing what you're referring to.

Indeed... ;)
