"Khorne Is The Chaos God Of Warfare, Battle And Bloodshed."
These three 28mm plastic multi-part models have been assembled from sprues found inside the "Start Collecting!" Daemons Of Khorne set produced by “Games Workshop”, and were all based upon "Citadel" 32mm round bases so as to fit in with the rest of my Blades of Khorne "Age Of Sigmar" warhost. Armed with their formidable-looking Hellblades, all of the "finely detailed plastic" have been assembled using the instructions found within their box; albeit I did eventually need to buy an additional slithering forked tongue after I dropped one whilst super-gluing a figure together and simply couldn't find where it had gone...
Having finished building the models, each of the Blood God’s Slaughter-kin was given a double undercoat of “Vallejo” Heavy Red, extravagantly washed with "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade and dry-brushed with (more) “Vallejo” Heavy Red. Following on from this basic stage I then turned my attention to their “jagged” hand-weapons and primed them all with "Vallejo" Heavy Sienna before applying a double-layer of Gold over them.
These bright metallic swords were subsequently dulled down using "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade and had their keen edges 'highlighted' with a thorough dry-brush of (more) "Vallejo" Gold. This process allowed me to then ‘tidy up’ any frustrating splashes of “Vallejo” Gold I had inadvertently deposited on their horns, hands, hooves, spines and sword hilts with a little “Citadel” Abaddon Black.
In addition I used this opportunity to gently blend these blackened areas in with the rest of the Bloodletters' red coloured limbs and head. To finish the daemons off, I carefully picked out their sharp teeth using a combination of “Vallejo” White and “Citadel” Agrax Earthshade, and ‘spotted’ their eyes with a few dabs of “Vallejo” Heavy Ochre. Finally, I gave their tongues a base-coat of “Vallejo” Heavy Ochre and later drenched them in “Citadel” Reikland Fleshshade.
Stepping away from the Mortal Realms, I have also been slowly progressing more miniatures manufactured by "Black Tree Design" as part of their "Doctor Who" range. To begin with I have dug out and primed a Slyther; a creature native to Skaro which "were occasionally utilised by the Daleks to act as guards at their installations."
The bizarre-looking monster is actually described on the "Tardis Data Core" website as being black in colour, but bearing in mind it appeared during William Hartnell's black and white TV tenure, I have always imagined the rubbery brute to be dark green. The Supreme Controller's pet should prove a reasonably straightforward figure to paint, so alongside it I am currently also working on the Silurian leader Scibus, and three armed Krotons...
