Abandon hope, all ye who gaze upon the foul visage of Scabeiathrax the Bloated, also known amongst his followers and his enemies as Papa g'Aap, Lord of the Blighted Pit, the Wind of Nurgle, Poopy McPoopface, and, according to a certain Aasfresser, Poopiwhoop Potato Pooper.

 

So yeah. This is a one day paint job, allowed to me because I 'worked from home' during very quiet times at work. Great fun to paint, and a veritable festivity after the Bloodthirster!

 

  1. I used a white undercoat for him, obviously,
  2. Then with a 1:1 mix of GW Rotting Flesh and GW Loren Forest, I made sure all lower areas and nooks and crannies on the model were covered.
  3. The raised areas and all the wounds were then covered in a 1:1 mix of GW Rotting Flesh and GW Kislev Flesh, followed by
  4. a complete zenithal highlight of thinned down VMA ELf Flesh, which was also sprayed directly in all larger open sores..
  5. I then started mixing various colours into a base 1:1 mix of GW Rotting Flesh and GW Kislev Flesh and applying those to the model to mimic skin discolouration and bruises, like VMA French Blue, and GW Wazdakke Red.
  6. I then liberally washed his entire body with washes of GW Riekland Flesh shade, GW Coroughburough Crimson, GW Drakenhof Nightshade, and GW Coela Grreenshade, all mixed with a few drops of Vallejo Flow Improver - which is a wonderful non-matte alternative to GW Lahmian Medium. Then,
  7. all pustules were painted with GW Averland Sunset mixed with Vallejo Airbrush Flow Improver.
  8. The sores where then done by painting them with GW BFTBG mixed with Flow improver.
  9. The Sword's haft is Vallejo Liquid White Gold with an AP strong tone wash, followed by GW Nihilak Oxide.
  10. The blade itself is based with GW Rhinox Hide, then stipled with various mixed-in oranges. I then drybrushed the blade with GW Leadbelcher, after which I stipled the two FW Rust-coloured weathering powders into it.
  11. The intestines were done with GW Daemonette Hide, which was highlighted up by mixing GW Ytriel Yellow into it. It was then given a wash of Drakenhof Nightshade, and when that was dry a very watered down BFTBG.
  12. The tongue was done the same as the intestines except I used Rakarth Flesh instead of the yellow, and I left out the BFTBG.

 

Anyway, here he is, take a look!

@ KrautScientist: Hey buddy, you're right!  Although the picture quality washes some colours out, I agree that his face could do with some more attention. I left the tongue out intentionally, as I think the tongue sticking out makes him, and, frankly, all models, look like a doofus. 

 

@ Quixus: Cheers, mate!

Both daemon's look great,  have to second KrautScientist on the face of the Bloodthirster, definitely needs a little more to make it the focal point and the eyes should do that nicely.

Blood thirster looks great. Im with Kraut. The eyes need a little more, or the face in general could use just a little more contrast to make it pop.

Yeah, I second some gloss on the sores.

Also, the bloodthirster looks a little flat to me, although the bone and wings look great. My least favorite part is actually the red of the armour, I think the only red being the blood might have looked better. (On that note, I think the axe needs a little more blood along the center edge of the blade, as I don't understand how parts of the center are clean when there are splatters far from the edge.)

Thanks for the comments and the great feedback, gang. You guys push me to improve on models, so as to make them from 'satisfactory' to 'awesome'. Thanks!! :tu:

 

On that note, let me show you the six hours paint job I did on Ahriman. I watched/listened to half a season of Black Sails painting this guy. A really enjoyable evening, to be hoest. Especially because I am very happy with a new technique I come up with: mixing a little Vallejo Airbrush Flow improver in with paint (and then using it with a normal paint brush). The Flow improver is much thinner than regular drying retarder, and so is much easier to mix in the paint. It also adds a slight satin teint to paint, which I much prefer over the matte finish of GW Lahmian Medium. I also makes the paint flow from your brush in such a way where I really don't see a reason not to use it anymore!

 

Anyway, enough talking. Here's Azhek Ahriman:

temporary_zpsb1sjm7bi.jpg

 

temporary_zps8xgumbcf.jpg

 

temporary_zpsr4u8geos.jpg

 

I'm super stoked about him, as I wanted to use a colour palette which is a nod to the Ahriman I painted as a teenager, almost 18 years ago, while also making him fit in with the rest of my Thousand Sons force.... I think I succeeded quite nicely. Take a look:

Also, after I put the miniatures back in their display cabinets, I came back to my photo booth to find a Greater Daemon of Puzziwuzz in it. Meet Peer, our latest addition to the yuppy palace:

Replies:

 

@ Uveron: Thanks bro!!

 

@ Atia: Steal right away, sis!!

 

@ Midnight Runner: Ha! Funny that you say that, as I remarked upon that subject in my interview as a Chaos Lord. I am open to commissions, but do not actively seek them out. I also wouldn't be expensive, because the joy I'd get to make someone else happy would be a reward in and of itself. :tu:

 

@ Psykic_scribe: Cheers, buddy! Yeah, I dislike the standard green recipe for Nurgle. I have looked at countless pictures of rotting flesh on the interwebs and almost none of them looked green. It´s always yukky flesh colour with teints of purple, red, and green.

 

@ Mechanist: Will get back on the 'Thirster's face! No worries!

 

@ Eldrick Shadowblade: I'll 'pop' right to it ;)

 

@ rednekkboss: Ha! Funnily enough, the wounds are super glossy: the picture just wahsed it all out. So I won't be going back to it, but you have given me an idea: put some GW Nurgle's Rot in between the intestines! :tu: thanks buddy! 

 

@ Teetengee: Those are fair points, for sure. But the gloss on the Poopmonster is really there! The camera washed it all out. Same as on the 'Thirster's face. About the red armour: that was a deliberate choice, as the 'Thirster should fit in with the rest of my KDK force, and they all have red armour.... I'll take a look at the axe and put some more BFTBG in the middle. Thanks for being so picky! :tu: Comments like yours make me a better painter. :)

The GUO definitely looks suitably icky, and I like your work on Ahriman as well -- the blending on his robes is particularly nice, and he looks fantastic as part of the Sorcerer Cabal you have there. Excellent stuff! smile.png

 

I'll have to be a bit of a buzzkill, however, and suggest that, before you start painting anything new, you should go back to the Soulgrinder and Bloodthirster and spent that extra hour on making their faces pop a little more. Don't get me wrong, buddy: Your work on those models is great, and the pace at which you are pushing out new stuff is truly staggering. But to move on with the models about 98,9% finished, while that last bit of work would be the part that really elevates them to the next level (and is, arguably, the most enjoyable part of the paining process in the first place) feels like participating in a Marathon and being among the top ten and then dropping out of the race within sight of the finishing line because you're tired and you'd rather go home, if you'll allow the simile msn-wink.gif (not that I would know the first thing about competing in a Marathon, but you get the picture).

 

Now I realise that this isn't the kind of feedback that'll make you happy, but I hope you take it as the kind of constructive criticism it is intended as. Because, seriously buddy, that last hour or so of work spent on those faces would turn those models into something truly outstanding. Just sayin'...

 

Then again, I am the guy who manages to paint two models in the same time it takes you to push out an entire army, so take this with a grain of salt, okay? msn-wink.gif

 

 

PS: You could always add that kitten to your next vow as a Warcat Titan msn-wink.gif

I have athick skin, no worries ;)

 

@ Psykic_scribe: Warcat? Don't insult him. He's a Greater Daemon of Puzziwuzz. And If I ever repaint him, I'll first have to strip him with break fluid. devil.gif So no ;)

Finally caught up on this thread. Everything's looking good but I'm going to be picky knowing your standard

 

  • Blood thirster looks good but it's a bit to clean for my taste. His armour looks plain, it might be the pictures but it sorta blends in to much as his skin, (same  glossiness sorta). Maybe a sprinkling of blood all over him? also some weathering on the gold bits.
  • Nurgle boss looks ace. Blade needs a little more weathering/blood/grime. It looks currently like hes come fresh outta the warp :P
  • Greater Daemon of Puzziwuzz needs Greater Daemon Armour, not a repaint :P

Thanks for all the feedback, gang! 

 

Finally, my bits order came in today from the UK. When I first read the rules of the Chaos Spartan, about three years ago, I immediately pictured one disgorging a horde of Khorne Berzerkers. Now, with my newly started Khorne Daemonkin army, I can make this a reality. As such, the Spartan in my vow will be painted red, and have World Eater and Khornate iconography  all over it. Including its tracks!

 

So I ordered 7 tracks of Lord of Skulls tracks from my favourite bits site. No, you might ask `Why 7?", and the answer to that question is: because it was all they had in stock. Turns out, it was just enough. I even had to cheat a little and make the 'end' ones, which don't have proper 'interlinking studs' (or whatschamacall it?). So with a little plasticard, I managed to make two complete sets of Spartan tracks! Huzza!! IN the end, I had only ten incomplete track links left. Lucky me!

 

temporary_zpsm2skgxor.jpg

 

I'm very much looking forward to chaosifying this Spartan even further. A set of World Eater Land Raider doors is on its way... :D

 

Hope you like! Comments very welcome.

@ Anselneo: hey buddy! Glad you grace me with your feedback - and very valuable feedback at that. Although I'm not sure how you think that the rust-covered blade of Scabeiathrax can be 'fresh from the warp'.... :)

@ Kurama: I doubt my Masters in Philosophy will rub off on the cat, but who knows? ;)

 

@ The Hydra: Mix yellow and red with ground up mice, and spray that all over a naked cat. ;) 

 

@ Eldrick Shadowblade: Dunno what happened there, buddy. ;)Please do! I found the Sternguard legs to be quite fitting for Rubricae.
