A little holiday chaos

Most of what I have been painting lately has been for a friend’s Adeptus Mechanicus army.  Almost 70 models in and I needed a little break.  Too many of the same model in the same color scheme can sap the motivation and creativity quite a bit.  So, while waiting for the next order for him, I decided to delve into the “bin if projects to be”.

I’m sure that you all have one.  A box of models that you bought with the inspiration just rushing through you.  The idea for a great color scheme or unique conversion (or the thought of crushing your local nemesis) drives a wedge between you and your money and you find yourself riding home with your next GREAT WORK.  Then you get home.  There’s no room on the painting table.  You need to finish that last last squad for an upcoming tournament.  Maybe you realize you are now short rent money (because of your new purchase) and so you have to paint something for someone else before enjoying your new toy.  Whatever the case, once stalled, these projects can get pushed back and pushed back until one day you look in a box at the back of the closet and re-discover that thing that you just had to have.  In my case, I keep that box close so that when I need to take a break I can resist the urge to shop and finally get to it.

This time the project is a Forge World Khorne Bloodslaughterer.  The piece is very dynamic and has a lot of character.  It is the kind of piece that really stands out on the table top.  Having never built one, I did make sure to take some in-progress photos.  I put them into a brief tutorial to help you a smooth build should you build your own.  I also used some of the techniques from my tutorial on making your own scenic monster bases from CDs.

Here it is!  BLOOD!!!

    Freaking awesome stuff, mate. The rich, glossy red really works for Khorne here. I’ve got one of these in a box I need to build one of these days. I’ll be coming back to this post (and your assembly post!) when I eventually do.
