Default BeastLord aka Deamon

Well, me and my buddy decided to forgo the rules for Perils of the Warp, mainly because we never even bothered to read them.

We just go by the philosophy of "If its fun and we both agree, why not?"

So with no idea of the rules or anything, we decided that everytime our pyskers suffered PotW, we would replace the model with a Khornate Deamon, who would probably end up killing everyone in the vicinity.

As such, we searched for a suitable model, but couldn't find any in our local hobby shop.

Then we came across this model, who I must say looks a smashing lot like a Khornate Deamon with an Axe of Khorne.

Please excuse the white robes, they're there because my pyskers wear white, and I wanted just a little link between the two.

So, without further ado, here it is:

Stankov, you're a nutter.

Great job by the way!

Dude! Most excellent model!

All I'd suggest doing is cleaning up the axe handle.

That is such a good idea I may nick it if I remember long enough - I was hoping to use a few psykers in my IG because I love the model, especially if I can convert on of those funky hats they wear in DoW, plus it's fluffy and fun. As for your painting - well, all I can say is you'd better collect Beastmen in future, because your painting style fits them perfectly. Perhaps better than your IG, even. Personally I think the axe handle is fine - if anything it's the bloodstain that could use a bit more detail, perhaps more shades of blood at various states of drying and congealment (is that even a word?).

Thanks guys!
Now that I look at the first pic, I see a bit on the cloth wrap near the axehead that needs cleaning up. I also realize I forgot the Flesh Wash on the wood grain, so it will look a bit better after that.

Commissar Will: Have any suggestions for the blood? I went Red Gore and a light Blood Red wash over that. Perhaps I should hit it with some varnish?

Thanks everybody!

Definitely some varnish! ;D Apart from that I agree, it's a very good model to represent it as a Khornate Daemon.

Varnish would probably look good on it, give it a nice sheen, and as for the paint, I reckon it would use some darker blood - say, Red Gore mixed with a little Chaos Black to give the look of dark, drying blood. If you have the stomach, type in "severe lacerations dried blood" or something on Google, that should give you some ideas as to the look of the blood.
