Default 6 hour mini - Finished pic of chaos lord

OK set out with a goal of painting a single mini from start to finish in a snigle day.

I picked the chaos lord, because i've been meaning to paint it for a mate now for a couple of weeks, its a potential test scheme for a potential tzeentch chaos army.

I also wanted to try out a bit more nmm techniques, so tried it out on its armour. Its not suppose to be metallic, just highlighted and shaded in a way that a glossy colour would have reflections, think of a polished showroom car...

For the actual metals i went with nmmum.

And the pic is huge, its much better inthe flesh (goes without saying).

You know, for some reason I doubt you've ever painted as bad as me. If that's a test model, I say go for it. It's really good but..... I really don't think a chaos lord of Tzeentch would be going into a brawl with only two axes. Since this is just a test model, that's really OK, but I don't think it's a good idea to have them that plain. Apart from the few downsides, it's incredible.

Something about the blank white cape bugs me, but I can't quite figure out what...

That is excellent, and the armor is awesome! You're a great painter ;D

But i do think you should put some detail on the cape.. (i know it's just a test but still) maybe an orange or purple design?
