I'm no painter, I enjoy the gaming portion much more than the hobby portion of Warhammer 40k. I paid a friend of mine to paint my first army (Sisters of Battle, will post pictures soon), and my Space Marines have been primer black for awhile now (I know, so bad... but I can use them as whatever chapter/codex I want!)

BUT!

I finally broke down and painted up my ENTIRE Chaos Daemons army over the last few months.

It's no professional work, but it looks great on the table, which is all that matters to me. What do you ladies and gents think?


(Nurgle Daemon Prince, not done yet obviously. Not sure what direction I want to go with him. I need to work on the wing joints a little, then I think I'll be able to finish painting him. I don't use him in game very often, but I really want to finish painting him.)











These two Soul Grinders were painted by a friend of mine, as I was in a rush before Adepticon to get them done, and he's much quicker/better at painting than me.












Next on the painting table: Tau Empire. Now if only I could decide on colors I like.

dude! those soul grinders a brilliant, how did you paint the splattered gore on them, they look terrific. you got a really nice effect on the plague bearers, they look exactly like something that would come out of your nose :biggrin: i love the colour you did the flamers as well, they are nicely Tzeentchish.

The gore comes from literally blowing the paint onto it. Put a little watered down red gore/blood red on a brush, and blow it onto the model.

For a "non-painter" I'd call those fairly well done. They are more then sufficent for tabletop presentation. Your soul grinders are excellent peices of work, that gore you have on there is a trick I'm going to have to use on my WHFB army.

I'm looking forward to see how you finish up the Demon Prince. His wings look large (and perhaps a little in charge) but the prince himself doesn't look very nurgle'y (asn't quiet sure how to say that, I guess thats right). Are you going to do any modifactions to the model, or just give him a paint job similar to your nurglings.

Regardless I think that deserves some rep :victory:

You have a lack of contrast and depth in your models. I would suggest that you apply a dark wash to many of your miniatures and then highlight the model to bring out the depth. For the contrast I am particularly talking about the Tzeentch models. Tzeentch is supposed to be very colourful and vivid. Do you see how on your horrors it kind of look like there are two horrors but one is trying to tear its way out of the other? I would suggest that you paint the 'second horror' in a rather different colour, a bright blue, green or red would work (the same goes for the flamers).

Otherwise the models look fairly decent and they are definitely fine for tabletop quality.

This is a great idea, I think I'm going to try it before I clearcoat everything.

Love the way the ugly smurf is being dragged around! I plan on doing some anti-smurf modeling on my Chaos soon!

Love this army!!!
