*the last one has a bit of aritifical light to better show of the gold :D



The base is a bit old school and I think I will keep it like that, maybe adding some flock when get to buying some of it.



Cheers

Off-topic warning!

I don't know if you've already adressed the problem with painting gold, but I paint it like this

- White undercoat (much easier to paint gold over white rather than black, even if its a metallic.)
- Burnished gold
- Mithril silver highlights
- Gryphonne sepia (at least two layers).

But I agree, gold is a total pain in the behind to paint, but the Gryphonne sepia-washing often ties it together to give it a smoother finish and some nice depth to the colour.

/end of OT.

He gets the following special rules:

Didn't See That One Coming: At the start of each game turn beginning with turn 3, each friendly unit must roll a single D6. On a result of 4+, that unit turns on the Emperor and is controlled by the opposing player for the rest of the game.

Thanks Menkeroth! If I knew the amount of work I had this week I probably would not have taken the challenge in the first place! As it turns out the base was done in a hurry between 07:15 -07:20 this morning and it shows! Oh well...

Okay heres the word bearer champion.

I actually managed to get 2 others base coated. Unfortunately this was the only photo that survived my purge of low quality pics.

I will endeavour to improve upon this. It is also unfortunate that I was unable to base my model due to constraints within the paint region.
Yeah I'll be using 2 for these guys. Base of liche purple with splashes of tentacle pink.

I was an abject failure at this challenge ;)

Week-before-finals crunch hit me hard, and pulling an all-nighter Thursday->Friday didn't help anything.

I got through assembly, priming, and a basecoat (all this was done by the end of the day Sunday), and then didn't have time to pick up a paintbrush again.

I was actually finished, but for some reason my phone will not share files with my computer, like it did last friday B)

I did manage to use him in a game however, I think he killed 3-4 Wyches and a Daemonette in the two games I used him. Not my most effective marine, but he mostly did his job B)

My model just needed based and washed, but there was a (very) unexpected event this week which prevented me from having time to finish it for the challenge. :)
