Slaanesh Warband - Part 3

I managed to find the time to finish another Beastman for my Slaanesh Warband. It was also the first time I painted a shield with a symbol on it:

I copied the paint scheme from the White Dwarf issue 105 where he is pictured on page 24. I think he came out alright and I am quite happy with the shield. The shield design is actually also stolen from the 'Slaves to Darkness' book. The mounted Adolph von Gruslowe is sporting a better version of this shield than my attempt on page 156. I have two more figures for this warband that are about 90% finished, but I am not entirely happy with their paint jobs. I'll have to decide if they are even worthy of  being photographed, even from a 100 yards away before I post them on here! Bis nächstes mal.

Chaos Warrior Pestilens One-Eye

Here's the Chaos Warrior Pestilens One-Eye painted up in typical Slaanesh colours of pink and gold :

The shield is not actually for this mini, just merely for photo purposes. It's just, I hate painting shields! I really don't know why, but I just find them a tedious task. Hopefully, I can get around this little obsticle and get some more done. Also, the base is only half complete, but still looks quite acceptable. Snot green over brushed with Goblin Green. A classic combination.

Slaanesh Warband - Part 2

It's been really difficult to get any painting done with the really hot weather we've been having, but I managed to finish this little fella:

Having my head under a hot lamp sweating my nuts of was not the best feeling in the world, but I'm glad to have him finished. All Chaos Dwarf fans will know this fella as Scarsol Smashskull. A great name for a great mini.

Enter the Chaos Warriors Arnie Slicernecker and Pifco the Deliverer

I really liked it back in the day when GW would give a name to a miniature.  Here we have the two classic Chaos Warriors 'Arnie Slicernecker' and the fantastically named 'Pifco The Deliverer'.

Arnie Slicernecker

Pifco the Deliverer

In White Dwarf issue 81 there is the following colour advertisment:

Loads of classic Chaos Warriors with names. Look at the price of them back then. £1.95 for three! Time machine, time machine! I love the colour choice here with most of the Warriors, different hues of green. Most likely ink washes over bare metal which was popular with the GW painters back then. One thing that really bugs me though is the Warrior 'Gargog the Unstoppable'. The tab is still attached to the leg! Amatures!!!
