After many painful hours of painting, I have 20 bloodreavers to show. I kind of hate how detailed they are for how easy they are to kill, but I also love them once they are painted. The squad went in with my usual yellow theme, similar to my Bloodstoker.

Most of the base painting was actually done with multiple layers of inks and washes over a preshaded zenithal priming. IMG_2277.JPG.e0c948a4310ca0ddb3f6221e03b7f36c.JPG

This does lead to a lot of the same skin tone, so I do plan to experiment a little on future batches. I do like how the blue trousers came out though.

With these fellows out of the way, I can now focus on bigger, badder models for a little bit, which has me very excited!

Well, after a ton of work, my Bloodthirster is finished. I have wanted to paint this kit for a year now and I finally got to it. I wanted to try the black based skin tone. It worked better than I expected and it made for some sick contrasts. 

I used some techniques I've never tried, like filtering the colors near the bones on the wings with blood technical paints, which is a far departure from the blood spatter on the wing symbols.

 

i also sculpted some fire on the base and I am overall really happy with all the contrasts on the model.

Having a few drinks, I decided to make a few conversions. I love the insanely metal Exalted Deathbringer with spear. What an incredible model ... that will never hit the table! To make it more of a table staple, I made the savage headbanger into a bloodsecrator. Then I went a step further to make the bloodglaive into a better looking weapon. I hate that Klingon look, so I made it more of a giant axe. Please let me know what you think.
