|Midge913||Really like what you have done here Blood_Knight! The cloak on the Lord is fantastic! Lots of depth and rich color. I also am going to echo that I like that you have gone with a deeper darker red than the traditional blood red that every other Zerker army goes with, it is very striking and different. Keep up the good work.|

|Blood_Knight||thanks guy. Trying to keep the blood god happy. i made it my focal point to get that right colour of red. and in the end it ended up being a primer with a wash or two over it. heh, who knew?|

|Salio||These are some great looking models! The red is very deep and works great with the bronze. Keep it up!|

So here is a small guide on how i paint my berzerkers. Lately i've seen alot of khorne armies that are far too bright. They are not renegade blood angels. Also you will notice all applicable models carry chainaxes, thats it, thats what berzerkers use. But thats only my opinion, they still look good, just too bright for me. so here we go.
Couple of quick shout outs. Army Painter, great products and quick delivery! Beasts of War, great paint pallet technique, putting down a damp papertowel with parchment paper top, keeps my paints consistent and moist! Lastly to Neal at the War Store, dependable deliveries, and they always get me what i need!
So i start off with a Army Painter Dragon Red primer. Then a do a full strength Baal Red wash, let dry, then a 70/30ish Badab Black/water wash. Dulls down the red get alittle and blackens the lines. One thats dry i do a Game Color Negro Black lining on everything thats not the actual red armour.
Next i paint in the teeth with Model Color Ivory. The world icons water is done with a Game Color Night Blue and Ultramarine Blue mix. The land is done first with Snot green then highlighted with Scorpion Green. The mask eye is done in Snot Green then lined with Scorpion Green.The piece of face showing is base coated in Model Color Black Red.
Then i put a full strength Devlan Mud wash on the teeth. Paint the armour trim with Game Color Brassy Brass. The axe handle is painted Bestial Brown. the chains, vents and the parts of the bolt pistol and axe are done in Boltgun Metal. The knuckle guards and studs are also done in Boltgun Metal. Though you can see it, the armour joints are done in Model Color Dark Grey and highlighted Model Color Light Grey. The face is the given a Game Color Pale Flesh heavy highlight.
The face is finished off with a Rotting Flesh highlight. The gold trim on the chainaxe is Game Color Brassy Brass and Boltgun Metal. The blood is done with Game Color Sanguine Blood Red. After all that is done, a full strength wash with Badab Black is done on all the metal.
After the wash is dry highlight the gold trim with Shining Gold. Then i touch up any mistakes with my own special blend of Blazing Orange, Mechrite Red and Game Color Gory Red. Don't ask me the ratio, it was a work in progress, doubt i could replicate it, its just something you have to do by eye. Also do one more layer of blood on the chainaxe with Game Color Sanguine Blood Red. And your done repeat basic steps to do the backpack and legs.
The base is started off with a Game Color Negro Black base coat. Then a second base coat with Scorched Brown.
Next you do a heavy drybrush with Bestial Brown. Then a lighter drybrush with Snakebite Leather then Bubonic Brown.
I then repaint the skull Negro Black, then Model Color Dark Grey. Highlight Model Color Light Grey then highlight Skull White. Next do a full strength Devlan Mud wash. Once dry do a Model Color Ochre Brown drybrush. After thats dry i put some regular elmars glue down and stick on some Force Nine Static Grass.
After that is all dry, i do a drybrush through the static grass with Model Color Ochre Brown. To finish the model off, to help keep these particularly posed models from tipping over i superglue a penny in the bottom.
And your all done you've got a Khorne Berzerker.

|Ultra111||Looking great mate, loving the red and brass.|

|Blood_Knight||Thanks! Yeah, thats what i was going for with the colours. All the khorne models i see look like chaos blood angels, and thats no bueno imo. I'm going to get more detailed about it later in my next entry, but i used Dragon Red primer from Army painter, did a full strength baal red wash, a watered down badab black wash for the armour. the trim was first painted model color chaos black, then a model color brassy brass, then washed badab black with a shining gold highlight. just gives it a richer, dark more khorne look. but again, i'll go more into the with details and pictures later.|
