Red is a pox

Hello again! Not as much progress as last time, double whammy of some bad family news and a three year old with chickenpox has put the brakes on somewhat, but I did get a start on the next chaos unit, this time a khornate marine, and what a bastard he was to paint 
Now don't get me wrong, he's a lovely sculpt, but me and red have never gotten on, so in an effort to add another string to my bow, I decided to paint the khorne marked squad as the God intended, so red black and bronze was the order of the day, but after a full four hours layering, glazing and swearing like a docker it still wasn't going anywhere, so a quick pow wow with a good mate of mine and a nights sleep later, and I was ready to finish the job. He's nothing spectacular, but it's as far as I'm willing to go before I lose interest in the squad, and if that happens fuck only knows when I'll get back to them, so onward and upward!
The other thing I got done for myself this week is Lord Skrolk from the skaven range. The Bazaar of Crooked Wonders on Facebook is following Orctober with Vermember, so in an effort to get involved I dug out one of the two skaven models I own and slapped him about a bit with the auld hairy stick. There's still the book freehand to do, but I'll keep you posted on that one 
He was great fun to paint, and will do nicely as an end of level type baddie for my upcoming warhammer quest project (there's another dozen or so skaven en route to me to make up the level 1 monster table entry), and now that I know skaven are so much fun to paint I'm starting to look forward to that particular job! Also, my orctober entry quite handily fills out the hand weapon Orc and goblin entries on the same table, almost like I planned it, eh? 
Anyway, enough outta me, join me next time for more shite talk, and hopefully a finished khorne marine squad so I can regale (bore the tits off) you with more tales of adolescent chaos worship. Thanks for looking!

  1. If only you could bore some tits onto me, then we'd have a deal. Can't wait to see more renegades.
