My only complaint is that the axe arm's flesh is too light. When put next to the skull on his backpack, it's practically the same colour.

wonderful red, any tips on how you acheived it?
Sure.

Black basecoat (duh :D)
Red Gore/Black mix 50/50
Red Gore
Blood Red (two coats to ensure full spread)
Red Ink

Keep in mind that each coat is very slightly smaller, area-wise, than the previous one to show gradation. Very easy, very quick and yet ends up looking quite nice. Was actually trying for something else on a completely different model when I first did that method and the first thing that I thought of once I saw the final dried colour was Khorne Berzerkers. Have a full squad of 10 models nearly done in this scheme now too :D

Wow--He musta just taken his armor off. He needs a tan! :lol:

Very well done. The veins are nasty and noticeable, but im sure you intended that.

The mouth piece needs something, though. The helmet seems just too plain.

Man, I feel like a chump. :lol: Every time I check the Painting threads, I'm reminded that I'm not such a hot painter, despite being the best in town. Friggin' AMAZING Kharn. I really like how worn the brass looks and the simple definition on the skin.

the metal i think should be a bit more bronzy, the skin a bit darker, a lil' bit more blood on the axe and the mouth piece isn't really painted just a bit of boltgun should do

the models great as it is just a few things that i would do if i were painting Kharn

i think it looks great, nice contrast throughout the model. I like the light skin and have painted my own Kharn light skinned as well although my khorne have a greyish flesh

I like it, Kharn looks very angry. I can't say I liek the blue, though.

Thanks for the comments guys, I appreciate them all.

I would like to say that the mouthpiece is painted very lightly inside and the skin doesn't look near as pale to the eye as in the pic. I don't have a very good setup for lighting so I had to brighten it up a bit in photoshop for the details to show.

Oh and Horus, I know exactly how you feel. I am nowhere near the best painter even in my area, nevermind anywhere else. Coolmini depresses me lol.

Nice. A very clean coloring, which brings out all of his features. It's good to see a World Eater that isn't drenched in ink or MinWax. Nice job, and again, good solid colors. Blood for the Blood God!
