A Couple of Right Thugs - Gorthar Chainarm and Pin Head

For a while now I’ve been meaning to try and paint human coloured skin something I haven’t really done before. Recently, I’ve been painting a lot of Slaanesh figure’s as I really like how you can go all out with the colour pallet. Anyhow, the first Thug I had a bash at is called Gorthar Chainarm (a huge thank you to Ross for informing me of the name. Check his blog out link):

I’m fairly happy with how the skin came out but there is still scope for improvement (or so I thought).

The second Chaos Thug is called ‘Pin Head’ as I’m sure you all know:

Again, I’m fairly happy with the paint job. There were times when I nearly gave up and was about to condemn Pin Head to a Dettol bath, but I persisted. Truth is I haven’t got any Dettol left so I had no choice (incidentally, does anybody know where you can buy Dettol or an equivalent in Germany?).

I’ve read that a lot of people use the Foundry paints flesh system for a decent skin colour, but I’m unsure whether to take the plunge. Maybe when I’m really flush with hobby funds I might grab a few of them. 

Auf Weidersehen!

Slaanesh Warband - Part 10

I haven’t checked, but I believe this tentacle armed fella to be the last member of my Slaanesh Warband. I’m pretty pleased with the paint job. At one point I thought, cripes I’ve used too many colours but I think I’ve got away with it. He’s unnamed for now as I can’t be arsed, but here he is:

 I painted this old classic Broo Beastman some time ago, but I must say I’m not entirely pleased with the outcome. It’s very bland. I just don’t like it, but its here for posterity:

Until next time my fellow white metal worshippers.

Did you hear the one about the Chaos Beastman, Thug and Familiars?

The Mrs and the lad are both ill and that can mean only one thing. Man Cave time! It's not like they are seriously ill, just a little temperature. I don't feel guilty at all in my Man Cave drinking beer, watching a film called The Fountain whilst writing this post. Honest Guv!

I've been beavering away basing and undercoating all my figures for some insane reason, but have still found time to do a little painting. Behold my white metal collecting friends:

What was I thinking painting the skull orange!!!!!


Nice one Cyril!

Slaanesh Warband - Part 9

I managed to finish another addition to my Slaanesh Warband. A classic Chaos Dwarf that goes by the name of Foaming Mad Furrikson. What a shame that GW stopped naming miniatures back in the day. Anyhow, here he is:

There are also two Minotaur additions that I rolled up about a year ago if I rememeber correctly. Now, I didn’t paint these bad boys as they were part of a job lot I bought on EBay. They are both painted quite nicely and I just couldn’t condemn them to a bath of Dettol. Here they are:

More Beastmen

A very quick post as it's fathers day out here in Germany and I plan to used my limited time by heading down the local beer garden and supping a few beers. Here are the Beastmen:

Hope you like them. Cheers.

Slaanesh Warband – Part 8

Bada dum dum dum another one bites the dust! Yeah, I’ve finished another Chaos Beastman for my Slaanesh Warband. I think I only have two more figures to paint and they are all done. Here is the cheeky little chap:

I finally managed to get my hands on a mini I have wanted for a long time. I’ve only seen this fella once on ebay and it was part of a job lot that was well out of my price range. Fellow lead hoarders, may I introduce to you Blob Head:

Also, I finally tracked down the second Chaos Steed needed for my Chaos Beastman Raider. Here is the twisted fiend:

So, it’s been a successful couple of weeks for me on ebay. However, the hobby fund is very low meaning no more purchases for a while. It doesn’t matter much as I’m on a serious undercoating mission at the moment, which gives me the chance to look at what I already have. It’s probably for the best that the funds are low!
