I was reading the air freshener bottle label whilst idly sat on the toilet the other day. It said, "Immerse yourself in intoxicatingly sensuous jasmine" at the top of the blurb, and I thought to myself 'This was written by a worshipper of Chaos. I just know it. There's a Slaaneshi cultist lurking somewhere in the Avon factory, making up innappropriate tag lines and advertising jargon. These are the fucking end times, dude'.
Anyway, speaking of Chaos, I haven't been completely idle and I am semi-diligently working on my latest Hellforged abomination. I made the base last, obviously, because dicking around, trying to pin a fully painted model onto its base positively reeks of professionalism. But I managed it, in the end, without too much fuss and only a modicum of cursing.
Then I realised that I had absolutely no clue how to paint the damn thing and had completely forgotten the recipe. Trawling back through previous posts wasn't much help at all. I knew I had based it with Zhandri Dust and used Brass Scorpion at some point along with glazing medium. And that was about it. So I'm writing it down with pictures this time. Its not the same as the original (of course it isn't!) but I'm ok with it.
The base tiles are different this time anyway. I ran out of thick plasticard to use as the marble slabs, so I ended up sawing a bit of terrain up.

Regardless, it's not finished yet. Not by a long shot. The original idea was to cover it in gore. I meant to drown that fucker in claret. I wanted it bearded in blood.
|Here, Shep! Here, boy!|
Now I'm not so sure. I think I should at least practice on a test model or something before committing. I tried using an old toothbrush and pot of Blood For the Blood God against the wall and the results were promising. But it could go horribly wrong. Not that Khorne will care.
|C'mon, boy! Fetch!|
