Default Khorne Lord [Update 2]

I know its not great but I just want some C&C (I know it needs cleaning up but if theres anything else you think it needs I can add then just say so I can do it all at once.)

Plenty of Blood on the Axe > [Well he is a Khorne Lord]




Transfer is a bit dodgy, may remove that.

Looks pretty cool dude.

A few pointers I hope you don't mind -

Try to thin down your paints just a tad.

For areas that are more textured like the fur cloak try some inks or maybe drybrushing to make them appear less flat.

Based models always look better.

Overall though a great job, it's rare to see colours so similar (the dark bronze and red) as it can make the model look too plain or flat, but I think you've pulled it off nicely.

I rather like the transfer as is, makes it look worn to me. It works better for a Khornate lord than it does for, say, a Tau battlesuit. :P

One thing I find funny, though...this guy couldn't decide between swords or axes, so he settled the debate by inventing the Khornate CHAINSWORDAXE! ;D

Perhaps the ChainSwax?

I for one like the conversion a lot. As Jah said, inking that fur would really help bring the model a lot of character.

The transfer looks okay, but a very easy way to improve it is to get some Codex grey and highlight the tops of the 'waves' in the cloak where the transfer is.

Other than that, I think it's excellent!

Stankov, the word "ChainSwax" brings to mind a jazz band of Khorne Berzerkers, with saxaphones, trumpets, and other brass instruments, with chainsaw teeth running up and down all over the place.

I'm Glad you like the CHAINSWORDAXE (KILL MAIM BURN, its supposed to be the daemonweopon) I'm also glad no-one thinks I went overboard with the blood or at least didn't say anything. I'll base it once I've finished the painting.
I don't have any inks (can I use paint to a million parts water instead? Also what colour ink would you suggest. i was going to leave the transfer on but it has taken it upon itself to come off, makes painting the cape easier at least.

BTW This is as close to Shakespeare as Chaos gets. (See if anyone gets it )

Hah, didn't notice that skull before.

I would use Chestnut brown ink on that fur.

Nice job. Pulled the colour scheme off well .

Only things I'd change are:

- I think the blood on the axe could do with a bit of tidying up. Try and keep it more towards the actual blades and also keep it thinner.

- Second, from what I can see that skull is very white. Try using a thin was of Bleached Bone and add blood with a 1:1 of Scab and Blood Red.

Hope it helps.
