Cheers for the comments, gang! I appreciate them, they motivate me to spend more time on the hobby.

@ Rex Ipsu Loquitor: Perhaps, although I know not of which pre-cuts you are speaking. 1. If you want to do that without supporting the thorax (which I did, if you look closely you can see a stud going up its abdomen) it'd be virtually impossible to magnetize the legs so that they support the weight. If you do use a support stud in the thorax, perhaps you could hide ball magnets in the bal joints of the legs, and put normal magnets in the ball joint sockets? 2. Yeah, 4" sounds about right. Planning to do a KDK slaughtercult list with several SGs? :D

@ Flint13: Ha! I didn't even notice that. The New Order cup was a recent birthday gift from the GF and the Vader key chain are my car keys. ;) About the simultaneous purchase: no coincidence at all. Great minds think alike. ;) Although you jinxed it by vowing in the HH strategium. :(

@ The Psycho: Cheers, bro! Kraut said somehting similar, so I'll give the flesh another wash. It's his recipe. If you cntrl+f search for 'rakarth' on his WiP about 10-20 pages back, you'll find the recipe.

@ guardian31: Thanks, and I will do on pciking out the eyes a little more. With blue. :tu:

Wow. I honestly would have never believed that the scheme and claw could work for a Khorne Daemon, but it did. Awesome buddy happy.png thumbsup.gif

 

Edit: What base size will you use for your Blood Slaughthererereres?

Thanks gang for all the comments. They really keep this thread going and inspire me to focus on the hobby!

Today is a glorious day in my continued path into the depravity that is Khorne worship, because I have finished the two Blood Slaughters.

Loooaaaaads and loads of pictures:

I hope you enjoyed that as much as I enjoyed painting these, because they are a blast. Those creepy legs are a chore, but totally worth it. I´m so happy I added them to my collection and KDK army. biggrin.pngthumbsup.gif

Thanks for looking and commenting. Seriously, you guys keep me going! thumbsup.gif

Reply!
@ Atia: Cheers, girl! Don't you think that weird daemon claw is Khornate, normally? Or were you referring to the metal claw? The Blood Slaughters' bases are the normal Oval bases used for the Maulerfiend and most Flyers. It´s the 120x92mm one, I believe.

I was under the impression that the 'daemon body' part was a separate piece.

 

Slaaneshi Daemon cohort for the Children of the Violet Heart, actually. I need a storage and transport solution for ca. ten SGs...

 

Thanks for answers.

What a piece of work is a man! how noble in reason! how infinite in faculty! in form and moving how express and admirable! in action how like an angel! in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the world! the paragon of animals! And yet to me, what is this quintessence of dust? man delights not me: no, nor woman neither. Nor woman neither."

@ Midnight Runner: thanks man, I'm glad you like them. :)Which ones are your favourite?

@ Res: Ooooh you mean magnetize the thorax to the daemon body! Yeah that's totally doable. Easy smeezy, actually. Just drill holes in both ends, put some putty in and reasonable strong magnets (these will probably do the trick just fine) while the putty is still maleable, so the magnets line up properly. That'd be a possibility, no? PS You can get your megnets cheap and fast from www.supermagnete.de

And holy moly stop beeing so fast QQ

I mean ... be fast but ... *,*

Ps: the slaughterers are sooo cute 😍

Thanks for all the replies, gang. :D

 

@ Kurama: Haha, thanks bro. Admittedly, there's very little chance of me doing a loyalist IG army. But perhaps in the distant future there'll be some traitor guard. The bases are easy to do, but involve quite a lot of steps. I'll do a how to on the bases when I'll start the Bloodthirster, how's that? 

 

@ Atia: Thanks Re: the blood slaughterers. Re: the claw: Oh right, well, I agree actually. But I guess a Khornate colour scheme makes everything look khornate? I'm serious, actually! :) Also, no way I'm slowing down! I need to beat that history loving Kurama!

 

@ Midnight Runner: Oh crap dude, all of those are last on my to do list! First up are all the Khornate things... I'm still debating about whether or not I'll do the Spartan in Khornate colours....

I've spotted a flaw in my plan this year. As with last year, we've both vowed the same superheavy. As with last year, you'll probably finish yours first. As with last year, yours will look *way* better than mine.

 

Ah well. Tis a small price to pay for glory! You're off to a fine start chap. Got any Maulerfiends planned? They'd look sweet in that scheme.

Whoa, you're on fire, buddy! Khorne is pleased! ;)

 

The Bloodslaughterers are looking excellent, and your new Khornate scheme seems to be working just fine! Now I'll have to be a bastard for a second here and point out that the Soulgrinder, while already pretty cool, is not quite as awesome yet as it could be. I don't know, it just seems to be missing that special something, especially some kind of pop around the facial area -- maybe some glowing blue eyes might do the trick?!

Next up, the dreadclaw. I'm doing this bad boy in 40K World Eaters colours. For the longest time I thought I'd do it in Night Lords colours, but that army is a bit finished. I recently fielded the unpainted one in a KDK game, with a vanilla Contemptor inside, and it worked great! Hence, the colours, followed by maybe a Contemptor in a subsequent vow. :)

I even magentized the pod itself to the flight stand:

@ Dragonlover: Oh right, you're doing a Kytan too, no? I think I recall you having problems with the scoprion's legs last year, which cut back in your available painting time. The Kytan will give you no such trouble, for sure, so you can make that thing look exactly like you want it :)

 

@ Eldrick Shadowblade: Hey buddy! Long time no hear from you! Glad you're back. If I'm ever in Florida or you in Amsterdam, we can face off against each other for sure ;) BTW would you mind putting the quoted pic in hidden brackets? Thanks!

 

@ KrautScientist: Thanks! How is your work on the contemptor, Lord, and Fabius faring? The SG is indeed in need of some facial focal point, and perhaps blue glowing eyes is the way to go...

First: I love the new deamonengines! But.... but how about some small freehand or decal on the Slaughterers? Even on some of the open spaces on the Grinder. Like a Khorne symbol or the symbol of your khornate warband. 

 

Don't get me wrong: they are perfect as they are, but a little bit of freehand or decal to "loosen" the whole appearance. Like Kraut suggested with the face-focus on the Grinder.

Thanks guys! Today sees me finish the fourth of the ten models in my first ETL vow: the Dreadclaw Assault Pod. 

 

The more I paint my new found red recipe, the more I like it. I added a slight highlight of a 1:1 mix of FW Word Bearers Red and GW Wild Rider Red, which nicely complements the red so far. I also put on some of the GW chaos transfers - mostly black chaos stars and khornate symbols, but also three of the green-blue World Eater symbols. I know they look kind of comically, but I actually quite like how they complement the colour scheme I have going for my KDK warband. 

 

Anyway, here's pictures. Take a look biggrin.png :

temporary_zpsifjfibae.jpg

 

As the Dreadlcaw is a flyer, I also made a flying base for it. It looks super weird! Take a look:

Huh. Chaos is no excuse for sloppiness ;)

 

But seriously: I could really talk myself into a rage about GW's World Eaters decals. They released an excellent version of the legion badge alongside the first plastic berzerkers, and every subsequent iteration of the symbol has been increasingly terrible. From an actual design standpoint, that is.
