Next thing to do is as follows:

1) darken banner pole
2) remove static grass from the bases (really hate the way it turned out. Good idea gone wrong I think) and fill in with snow.

Once that is done, I will be starting on the Juggernaut Lord. And let me tell you, as much as I enjoyed painting these knights they are NOTHING compared to my need to paint the new jugger lord. The model is absolutely gorgeous.

First off, the paint job is superb, you're right about the realistic feel to the armor and weapons. I agree that you should continue that way.

In regards to the banner, maybe do a dark gray for the generic mark of chaos going on their. Or perhaps a dark purple, shaded into the banner, so it won't pop out and draw attention away from the riders and mounts

Very slight update:

I started on the Juggernaut Lord last night. So far I just have the first few coats done on the Lord's armour but I think I have managed to get it very similar to the Knights armour while still having a definite red tint to it. Once I get the armour done I will post some more pics.

As for the banner symbol, I think I might try a bone colour like Fist suggested, mainly because it will tie in a bit with the bone from the rest of the models while still looking decent on the red background.

Quick pic of the wip armour for the Khorne Lord. Trying to keep it darker and more realistic like with the knights but also give it a reddish tone. Working well so far but still a bit more work to do on it.

Not entirely sure yet how I will do the jugger. Similar I think but much darker, more like the armour of the knights in order to make him stand out on it. I am also thinking of doing a very slight glowing effect under the ridges of the juggernauts armour plates to show its otherworld origins but it will have to be very very subtle in order to keep the realism up like I want to.

Quick pick of the wip lord next to a finished knight to compare the armour.

Driveby: Generally I start with a dark base coat, add a few small highlights and then go nuts with a large number of washes using the new GW washes to build up (or down sometimes) to the colour I am going for.

Shite. I had a plan for my own Jugger Lord (when it arrives at the shop), but I may have to nick that metallic red instead. Absolutely beautiful. If I may ask, how difficult does it look like it'd be to remove the headdress?

Update

Most of the main body is done now as well as the cloak. Again, deliberately keeping the tones muted and similar to each other to present a slightly monochrome look. Not sure of the reddish area in the helm though so I would like opinions on that from the rest of you. I still have some work to do on the tassles on the helm but for the most part, he is done. Now to start on the arms and then on to the juggernaut itself.

Dang, Wraithlord that is some amazing work! Keep up the good work, you're putting me to shame. Thanks for the inspiration.
