I visited my nearest gaming store, to resupply my painting and basing needs... when my eyes saw the new Chaos Lord and Possessed boxes. The lure of chaos was too irresistable ^_^ . The sprues are the best I have yet seen :P . I'll be updating tonight with 1st Possessed Marine.

But of course!
Firstly basecoat with Bronzed Flesh, ink with Red Ink/Magenta Ink (gives different kind of vibes :pinch: ).
Then mix 70/30 Bronzed Flesh and Bleached Bone + tiny bit of Red Ink/Magenta Ink. Add some more Bleached Bone to mixture, to make the highlightings.

Took loads of pics, these were the best two, and I couldn't decide which one to choose. I'm planning to paint him with glowing orange-yellowish eyes, too stupid? "Snappy" might be completed later tonight if nothing interrupts me :P .

He looks great! I think orange-yellowish will look good but you could also try black-greenish eyes. I saw a pic on a possesed with those eyes just don't know where so I could show you.

Keep up the good work sire!
"I must say, the way the Ultramarine on the cover of the new SM Codex is gunning down the Chaos Marine strikes me as extra contemptuous. As if he's saying, nice Codex loser. *BANG*"

Ok, for starters, I had a plan for purple skin, 'cause there had been too much variation in colours. After a few minutes I tried another way for purple skin... using mixture of blue and red inks, for the shade if you understand what I mean. After the ink wash left hand looked like it would have been dipped in blueberry-raspberry jam.... mmmmm' delicious :) . So I did the flesh like I had done it with Snappy-possessed.

My possessed squad is growing in such alarming speed, that The Emperor himself is wondering what's wrong with me!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: Usually I build and paint anything in day or two, now my speed has decreased, which is actually good, 'cause too much haste usually ends up with lots of mistaces.

I noticed that I hurried too much painting second possessed, quality of reds and flesh could be better... here's a comparison/squad photo, so you can see it yourselves.

But what's next in the line? "Of course the third marine, you idiot!" you might say, but no... next one is none else than the Chaos Lord!! Here's a photo, where you can see that my progress has been HUGE!

Ignore the dryed glue spot in the head socket, now I'll always know where the head goes :P .I assembled the lord couple days ago, to get the main idea of the pose and thousand other little things.

There will be more progress tonight, so wait for ANOTHER update!!! :)

Late nights update, as promised.
This time some other-angle pictures.

Now there's going to be some questions, something like: "Why the Night Lords rip-off lighting markings?!"
I have some seen here, at B&C some of the most stunning Night Lords I have seen, so why not steal the lighting for the Word Bearers? :)
And of course, it could be original idea for Word Bearers ^_^ .

Comments and Criticism are appreciated (and needed :P ), thank you.
