Having been freed from the shackles of the Lord of Terror, I bring you: Slaanesh Daemon Prince!
Update: I've been featured (among others) on the GW blog today! http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/wnt/blog.jsp?pid=3300058
Ok, so I've been away for a while, hackin' and slashin' monsters in another dimension, but it's high time to get back on track with what's really important - painting them miniatures! :)
I've started working on this guy before D3 hit and finished him off in the last 2 evenings. It was a bit of a challenge for me, because I've never worked with these wanky colors before. It's all been nurgle and khorne till now. The only reason, apart from the model being awesome, that I undertook this slaaneshy project was that I wanted a wysiwyg model and well, I do use the allmighty lash of submission in my army so there!
I won't go much into the wip description apart from some basics: some airbrush work was done to put the basic layers in place and from then on it's been much blending/layering and fine detail work. Funky colors involved in the project were: warlock purple, genestealer purple and leviathan purple wash. All the rest are standrard.
I guess one can have mixed feelings about the outcome. I guess slaanesh color scheme is kind of a love it/hate it kind of thing (at least for me). I did my best to try to maintain the appropriate level of "darkness" of the model, giving him wtfpurple accents at the same time. Overall I'm quite pleased with the effect. It's a really impressive model and I can't stop looking at it, sitting all bosslike in my display case :)
Oh and in case you were wondering, the skulls on the base come from the "pack of skulls" pack from GW. Sweet stuff if you ask me. Still got plenty left.
Khorne terminators are next...
