Skulltaker Painting

Kroxx here again from Chaos Bound, today I am posting pictures and my personal steps taken to complete my skulltaker, who will be my General for my ever growing Khorne army.  My army is going to be called Khorne's Chosen so for most my models were normally you would see brass or bronze I will be using Gold as they are Khorne's most fierce and brutal warriors.

I ripped the finecast out of the blister pack, cleaned him up and got him base coated:
I didnt start taking step by step picks until was about 25% done so I will start with the basics I did and then move to the step by steps.

First I gave all his armour a coat of  Iyanden Darksun and his body a coat of Mechrite red, then gave him body a wash with Badab Black and then used Blood Red ontop.
Next I gave his body a wash of Devlin Mud which helped tone it down and give some highlights.
Before Wash

After Wash
Next I started his cloak, the updates will be in the caption for what I did.  Also I repeated the same steps for the skulls under his feet and the ones his horns wrap around on his head, but I did not take pictures for them.
Starting with the undercoat black

Dry brush on Bleached Bone

A little devlin mud goes on top

A light dry brush of Bleach Bone again

A light dry brush of Skull White

Iyanden Darksun on the hooks

Brunished Gold on the hooks to finish them off
For the Sword I left it black, and decided to go with the lava lightning on it, I put a layer of Mechrite red down, after that I put a slightly narrower layer of blood red, after that I put a narrower layer of blazing orange and finally a very narrow line of sun burst yellow.  Here is a picture of the sword completed with his head and foot.
These skulls are completed in the same steps as the cloak

Next I started on the skull in his hand, for the skull and spine I just used Bleached Bone and then devlin mud, I wanted it to be darker because it is engulfed in flames after all, but I did not take pictures of the steps for the skull.  Below are the steps I used to paint the flames on the skull.
Covered all the flames in Iyanden Darksun
Dry brush of Sunburst Yellow

Next I dry brushed blazing Orange on the tips
Dry brush of Blood Red on the tips of the flames

Finally a light dry brush of Undercoat Black and the tips to give it the burnt look
For his armour I used burnished gold

And finally after some touch ups on the cloak and skin he is complete!

Here are some pics of him and with a few of the bloodletters I have completed.

Thanks for reading guys and I hope it gave you some ideas on what to do for your own Daemons.

I will be posting my army progress pictures along with all battle reports Sarkastik and I make on Chaos Bound (link above) and I will be posting some more of my work here in the future.

Ork Deff Dread - Painting and Magnets

Hey guys,

It is Kroxx here from Chaos Bound, I just finished up two big projects I had on the go, one was a Ork Deff Dread with magnetized arms and my Chaos Daemon general Skulltaker.
So here are some pictures of the steps I took to paint my deff dread and I will also include details on what I did during each step.

So my first step was picking the initial weapon load out I wanted for him, to start I decided on one DCCW and a Skorcha.
Just off Sprues
Next I gave him a nice coat of Chaos Black
Next I added a layer of Mechrite Red to the body and arms

After that I started adding some bolt gun metal and sunburst yellow and tin bits to some of the details on the body and arms.

You will notice I screwed up when I glued to the face together, so that is what I'm leaving it black.

Next I hit the whole body with a wash of Devlin Mud and then used Blood Red and painted some detail work around the body and stripes on the face, and then once that dried another thin layer of devlin mud.

 After that I glued the arms on for one pose before taking them off to put my magnets in.

Next I removed the arms and started to drill my magnet holes.  I did this by using the GW drill and then using a exacto knife to carve the whole to the correct size needed.
** Remember when gluing the magnets in make sure they are in the correct way other wise they will just push each other apart.  I did this by letting two magnets go together and then putting a little black paint on each of the ends are were showing.  The side with the black paint are the ones I would put facing the body so the unpainted end was facing up.**

After I finally drilled and scrapped out of the holes I started to put the magnets into the arms and body.  Once the glue dried he was all set snap his arms on for a test spin!

My Deff Dread is complete!  I am pretty happy with myself on this one, I am not the best painter and do not claim to be but I know I'm getting better then my first Ork boy!  Hopefully this gives you some ideas for your own Deff Dread.

Well, its been a while since I have done an update so here it goes.  Been working on a bit lately, taking part in #thedailypaint over on the MiniWarGaming forums.  Basically the idea is to do something hobby related every day.  Doesn't mean you have to complete a model every day, just make some progress. Anyways, here is some of the progress I have made over the last little bit:

FT Assault Marine:

DE Venom - Pics are a bit bad... terrible really... but I was in a hurry.  I will post some better ones later.

Lelith -Very much a WIP

And a random skaven...

Thanks for looking, and as always, C&C is welcome!
