Chaos Beastman Shaman?

This really is a great sculpt and was a real pleasure to paint from start to finish. On closer inspection it looks like a Chaos Beastman Shaman with its staff and skull. Also looks like something from either the Mayan, Incan or Aztec civilisations with its pendants/medallions pinned to the staff and hanging from its clothing:

The mini can be seen at the top right of this scan (number 05). A few of the figures on this scan are already on this blog fully painted up, whilst the others are stuck in some sort of chaos portal!

Hope you liked the Chaos Beastman Shaman.

Chaos Warrior Ivan Edaik

Fancied painting a Chaos Warrior so I chose Ivan Edaik. Now, the following text is completely and utterly stolen from an ebay listing. I feel no shame at all as the seller has stolen images of painted miniatures from other blogs without their permission. So, with that out of the way:

"Clad in full plate armour marked with the sigil of the eight pointed star, this mutant thinks nothing of resting the claw of his ornate and unique hammer on his own brow. His pose is that of the consummate warrior, it has an ease and fluidity to it that denotes skill in combat, and this is offset by the witless look of his degenerate face; the masterful poise of a natural warrior with the slack jawed expression of an idiot. Perhaps the secret to combat prowess is not having a thought in your head, perhaps the cone shape is to store battlefield aptitude and not much else."

Slaanesh Chaos Beastman

After painting the Chaos Centaur, I needed something that would require not much thought nor skill to paint. For this I chose one of my beloved Chaos Beastmen as I just think they are great. I do however dislike the Bob Olley sculpts. Just not my cup of tea at all. Too many folds etc.

I’ve copied the paint job found in White Dwarf 105 my first and favourite all time WD issue! I think it turned out well and being covered in fur made the paint job a straight forward one.  Whist painting the face, I noticed that it looked similar to a couple of other ones that I’d painted in the past. Look at the following scans below and judge for yourself:

Beastmen Top row right and bottom row right (copied this paint job too!)

Top row in the middle and second row 2nd right
Second row 2nd left. The infamous Hesh

I was also wondering why the face on these mini’s looked so familiar and then I remembered that Jason from rogueheresey mentioned that it looked like The Grinch with his original green 80’s paint job! 
Hesh or Grinch?
