Red Paint for the Blood God?!!!!
|This picture just speaks for itself|
We started the day off with a Megabattle. Chaos vs. the world. I of course played on the winning side and by that I mean the Chaos side. Of course I was to immersed in dominating the damn Dark Eldar across the table that I didn't take any pictures. That took us until supper time and after some wings and much needed beer we finished the night off with a 2 vs 2 Warhammer Fantasy battle. Its always fun to break out my Ogres.
Gaming wasn't the only thing that I enjoyed on Saturday. I was also able to pick up this little beauty.
On top of that a friend of mine brought me the new Warpsmith. Oh man what cool models. I can't wait to try them out on the table. So Sunday saw me putting these two together and getting them ready for primer and paint.
I really wanted to try and get a different look for the Heldrake as the picture on the box just didn't do it for me. However, as I opened up the box and started putting it together I started liking it more and more. Its big and only being 2 sprues its hard to justify the price of this thing but man its going to look pretty bad ass on the table.
So like I said I wanted to try and convert the look of the Heldrake a bit while I was putting it together but they made this guy hard to change. Without a ton of cutting and molding there wasn't much I could do. Im ok at converting but this guy looks pretty damn good the way he is. I just angled his neck and head a bit and put him at a bit of an angle to give him a more predatory look.
The Warpsmith I'm really happy with. I had to heat up some of the resin pieces to get the bends out of them (friggin finecast) and position the arms properly but other than that he was really easy to put together.
With the Warpsmith and Heldrake built I moved on to finishing my October motivational challenge and finish the paint job on my Chaos Rhino. It went pretty quick and here is the outcome.
I really like the look of the Rhino and I love painting red but I don't know what I think of the pealed paint on the bottom of the sides. I think I'm going to "mud" the track and sides up a bit to mask it a little. It kind of has to much of a comic book feel. What do you guys think? Right now its going in the case as finished and I'll take it out and touch it up once I decide what I'm going to do.
Well that was my weekend. Awesome! Thanks to all the guys and gals that participated in the 40k and Fantasy battle. Also a special thanks to Maxx Collectibles for supplying us with gaming tables and terrain, and of course to Eye Opener for supplying me with my new Heldrake. I can't wait for the next Gamesday. See you all there!
