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.

Bugman's Glow basecoat on skin.
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.

:-D

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

BTW, has anyone noticed the mistake I made? 😉

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... ;)
