On Display: Dark Vengeance Chaos Lord

Finally! Added some Tamyia Clear Red to the orbs on the sword hilt and the gaping mouths, some static grass to the base and painted the trim. Let's enjoy the pretty pictures shall we?

He went together better than the Company Master with no visible mold lines. I am very happy with the overall appearance, but loathed the amount of detail. I guess there is such a thing as too much detail ;) I will be moving onto the chosen & hellbrute next. I'm going to break out the air brush to keep expanding my skills. We'll see if it goes any faster doing a unit with the airbrush or if I just crumble under the strain of batch painting o.O  I'll also have to break up all that power armour with some pirates for the office (Hope you don't mind too much).
Please comment and critique  Check the blog roll, keep an eye out for a contest announcement (So close now. SO CLOSE!), and remember; you can't spell paint without a little pain :)

  2. Nice work as always Zab mate. So how come you settled on Night Lords for these guys?

    1. Thanks! Honestly, because blue is a forgiving color to paint and my 2 favorite chaos legions are the Night Lords and Alpha Legion. They both turned from the Imperium for reasons other than power. Night Lords were motivated by the guilt and shame felt by their primarch and the Alpha Legion were mislead by the Eldar and their own good intentions. Plus there were too many red armies out there already ;)

    1. Thanks man, it was annoyingly slow going though. I need to practice speed painting...

  4. Your airbrush should help with that huh, I agree with you, these figures have a lot of detail, easy to get bogged down making them look shiny :) Really nice job on this one, lots of clearly defined areas, this sculpt would be too easy to make look homogenous (spelling?) Cracking :)

    1. Agreed about to homogeny. In fact i didn't paint the face on the shoulder pauldron because it fell too busy so i just painted lightning strikes over it. Sadly, the airbrushing is great but any time i made up on the base coat and shading is being lost trying to preserve the nice shading while very carefully and slowly painting the details. ~sigh~

By all means have your say, but please keep it civil.
