Black Legion Lord

So, I'm finally catching up with the rest of the Chaos community and I've painted the Dark Vengeance Chaos Lord. Even though he's not going to be part of my force, I painted him up as Black Legion.

He was fairly simple to paint up. After a Black basecoat, I sprayed Warpfiend Grey onto all the upper areas that would catch the light. I used Warpfiend Grey as it has a touch of purple to it which looks a bit more interesting than just plain grey. The cloak was Scab Red with Blood red sprayed onto the upper folds. Blazing Orange was used to highlight the edges The metallics were nothing special, just silver with an earthshade wash, and gold (any gold will do) with a sepia wash followed by an earthshade was directly in the recesses.

After an black ink wash into all the recesses, I cleaned up any overspill with white spirit, then highlighted the armour with Slaanesh grey on the extreme edges.

I was thinking of making a tutorial on how I paint Black Legion...hopefully, someone is interested...

How to Paint Dethskull Orks

A quick word before we start...

A few years back, I tried to start an Ork army...2 mobs of boyz later and I was sick of painting them. I admit, my painting ability wasn't as good as it is now (subjectively speaking), but I was still trying to paint them to the best of my ability. This may be fine when painting a small, elite force like Marines or an Aspect Warrior heavy Eldar force, but with a horde force, you're gonna get bored sooner or later.

So, this tutorial is my attempt at coming up with a quick and simple paint scheme that still looks pretty good on the table top.

Orks and other assorted bad guys...

Hi all,

So, the How to paint Orks tutorial is almost ready, should be going up in the next couple of days. In case any of you were wondering (snigger...), it'll be for Dethskulls. I don't get the chance to paint any blue, so even a tiny bit on this fella makes a nice change for me.

In the mean time, here's a little sneaky peeky at my newest project, my own Black Legion force. This is my newly assembled Chaos Lord and his Chosen retinue...

Word Bearers Tutorial on FTW

Just to let you know, my Word Bearers painting tutorial has been featured on From the Warp. I consider it a huge compliment to see my work on Ron's site.

If you've never checked out FTW, why the smeg not? I've learned so much from there, and so can you. I can see me using so many more of his techniques in the future.

Thanks Ron!

Next Tutorial - Orks

I'm currently working on my second tutorial - How to paint Space Orks. Not decided which klan to go for yet...I like Deffskulls and their blue war paint, but maybe I should go with the ever present Goff klan...decisions, decisions.

Watch this space...ork....
