From TeemuL: Oddities of the Week (20 Points)

So now I'm back to painting odds and ends as my AoS Slaves to Darkness army is "complete". I have managed to paint something, but being extra busy now as the deadline for blog entry is getting closer, I probably have only some low quality pictures and little words.

This is a Slaughterpriest (of Khorne) from the Gorechosen game by GW. It is a spin-off of Age of Sigmar and this (and other 3 figures in the game) have also rules in the AoS, which is part of the reason I bought the game. I have not yet tried the game, but looking forward some pit fighting carnage.

Slaughterpriest is a huge model, 40mm to eye level. My first plan was to really make this look great, but there are just so many details that I lost my interest. I tried to be neat anyway and I'm quite happy with the outcome. I chose red and yellow as the colors, somehow I don't like the brass (or gold) which Khorne usually does. So I experimented with some non-metallic non-metal technique. :D

Then two goblins, standard bearer and hornblower to accompany my earlier goblin hero as a command group for my night goblins. Usually goblins and night goblins are in separate units, but I have not many of them at all, so I just use all as goblins.

They are Grenadier models from 1988, pre-slottabase. I glued them on regular bases and used green stuff to hide the edges. It makes them stand a bit taller than others, which is ok, because they are command.

Here they are with the rest of the unit. With 20 models, it is "finished".

During the last Challenge I started to paint Legend of Drizzt, I only managed to paint to spider swarms. There were three in the box, but I missed one. So here it is.

I have several almost finished miniatures, but since it has been very busy yesterday and today, I was not able to finish them in time. Next week should see quite a mixed bag.

ByronM: That is one huge bad ass chaos warrior there, I haven't followed AoS after a few games and saw that it didn't meet what I was looking for in a game, so have not seen that guy.  I am sure he will kick some serious ass on the tabletop.  I really like the old school unit of goblins as well, they really bring back the old days of fantasy battle.

    1. Thanks Tamsin, just wait for the next week's mix. :)

  3. That Slaughterpriest looks very nasty. Well done Teemu!

    1. Thanks Curt! I'm quite happy with the Slaughterpriest in the end, although I was aiming for better standard in the first place.

  4. Great stuff, love the dude with the big chopper!

  5. Nice mix of minioatures, Teemu! I really like the oldhammer look of the goblins, and that Chaos warrior is worthy to lead his own warband!
