Khorne Berzerkers!

I didn’t manage to get the Khorne Berzerker unit finished yesterday, so I finished them off today. I have to say that I am not keen on the sculpts – I think that the posing on them is a bit silly. Some of them look as though they are doing a dance or the conga, which makes them less scary and more laughable. I picked these ones up second hand however and wanted to use them as practice for the airbrush.

I still have a long way to go when it comes to smooth transitions and even covering in regards to the airbrush. I need to work on consistency of the paint too. At times, it came out the airbrush too watery, so I had made it too thin. I don’t want to make it too thick either as than it clogs up the airbrush instead. It is a learning curve however and I know what too thin looks like at least.

When I had finished them, I did get to use liberal amounts of blood for the blood god, which gave them that fighting, gorey look that is associated with Khorne. I am pleased with them for the most part, and I learned a fair bit painting them too.

What’s on the table this week?

This is a bit like a weekly ‘to do’ list! These are some of the things I wish to achieve miniature wise in the week ahead, though I am not sure I will get everything done with a planned trip to my folks place! So, in no particular order:

  1. Khorne Berzerkers. I’ve already base coated them and got them on the right sized bases. Now they need finishing off.

2) Guillliman who is a commission for a friend of mine, and some screamers. I want to try something with different colours on the screamers. Guilliman is already base coated and ready for pin shading and metallics.IMG_3564

3) This Death Jester and the other Eldar guy. They came in a batch of Eldar that was picked up at the Warboot and I think they look interesting, so I will paint them to sell at a later date. Always good to try some different miniatures right?IMG_3563

4) I want to paint this guy to practice on those swords. I believe this is a converted Autarch?IMG_3562

5) This fellow has a banner and is already primed… I’m going to Eldar freehand it and practice gems!IMG_3561

6) And then there is this guy…

I shall be very busy but I am confident I will get at least the first 5 done. The last guy will be an ongoing project as he is rather large. He shall be the reward for painting the others and progress will be slower. I am painting him for myself though, rather than for commission or selling. Either way, it shall be a busy, but fun, week!
