Yeah I know, another log. There just seems to be no interest in my general one so an army specific one might do the trick. The plan was this army would be a longer term project but the background of the army is cool and really enjoyed painting the first model.

Anyway, if you haven't guessed yet I am going to try and build a Slayer army :rolleyes: . The army will be 2000pts and hopefully will be ready for the end of June for Carnage Poole 03, Lavfluris is cool and allows the variant lists at his tournies. I am also going to try for a best army nomination so the army will be done to a high standard. Maybe I can win it, as McMullet isn't going...

No army list as of yet, just going to get as many slayers as I can painted then make a list. Heres a pic of the first Slayer, on and off this probably took me an hour to do. Also my first try with the new foundation paints, the orange is a very nice colour.

Heres the pics, not the best, lighting was poor and using my brothers camera with a 5 second(ish) shutter delay.

Thats all for now. Comments and advice welcome, this is my first time painting Orange and a good chance to practice painting flesh with my new recipe (thanks Ben *thumbs up*)

Cheers lee, also forgot to mention that the base still needs to be painted.

It looks really nice especially if you did it in less than an hour. I think the hair maybe needs a light drybrush of a lighter orange, it looks a little flat

keep up the good work

Here is a picture of the finished slayer, the base is now done and he has been dull coated.

The army list isn't legal at most tournaments but Lavfluris allows the Storm of Chaos lists at his Carnage Tournaments. This will also probably double as my Nemesis crown list.

Looking good there...especially with the base painted :D

I agree that the orange looks a little flat. Either a drybrush or 2 with a lighter orange, and/or some darker shading righ in the recesses could just lift it...

Good luck with the rest of them. It can be daunting painting so many of the same type of models...

30% off FTW!!!! TheDragonsTears Rule!!!

EDIT: They can't order them as they are being repackaged into boxes. Back to square one then...

Some of them, at least. ;)

Nice work as ever Paul, I continue to be impressed by how quickly you manage to achieve such a high standard. I think Ninners is right that you need a tad more highlighting on the orange hair though - maybe a very light drybrush of bleached bone/orange mixed together.

Give us a shout if you fancy a practice game. :)

Damn shame about the repack.

He looks good though, any plans for tattoos?

Cheers
