Emperor’s Children Update
In the lead up to Saturday’s Apocalypse game I was crazily trying to get stuff finished off, but this was in conflict with my usual slow and painstaking painting style.
I had a definite deadline to finish the five Daemonettes I had on the table though as they were in a stage of painting that, were I to transport them and use them in game, pretty much all the paint would rub off their claws and other pointy bits (of which there are plenty, they are daemons after all)
So with my 1am deadline rapidly approaching I just about managed to finish them and get them varnished up. And here are ladies 6 to 10 in all their seductive Slaaneshy glory:
Again, I really enjoyed painting these ladies and, as before, did the whole colour-glazing thing on their skin to give them that “fresh from the warp” appearance.
I’m not so happy with the hair on some of the bigger hairdos, so I may go back in with a bit more highlighting if I can be bothered. I should really prioritise getting other Emperor’s Children stuff painted up first though. I’ll get a full group shout done once I fix the bit of battle damage I incurred in the Apocalypse game: a broken Slaanesh Icon on the bearer Daemonette. I imagine a vengeful Eldar snapped the standard over his knee.
One day I’ll have a fully painted Chaos Space Marine army sat in front of me on the table. This will be a truly momentous occasion as it’s something I never thought I’d have the determination and perseverance to achieve.
Sadly I didn’t quite have the time to finish up the other priority paintjob – my Chaos Terminator Lord.
Here’s the current state of play:
I’m really rather pleased with the way the glowing green underlighting has come out on his face, exactly as I imagined it. I’ve still a bit of tidying to do there but I don’t want to stray to far from what I’ve got. I think I’ll echo the green light glow on the lightning claws, which could give him a bit of compositional balance and draw the eye nicely around the mini. Or it could just look frickin’ cool!
