Chaos Standard WIP
This will be my entry into the Warhammer Forum winter theme challenge, if I can get it finished on time. The picture is crappy so I will try to highlight a few things.
The base is made from slate and some coconut shell. Notice the funky texture, cracks and little hairs? These should look really nice with a bit of snow sprinkled on top. I might also take the plunge and attempt some icicles. There are a few tutorials kicking around, always wanted to have a bash at that.
The main figure is an Avatars of War chaos sculpt. I love their stuff, I really do, but sometimes the detail can be a bit soft, forcing you to highlight edges and corners to accentuate the sculpt. Having recently painted a lot of nice, sharp plastics, this can be a bit of a letdown.
The banner is a plastic GW bit. It will be a deep red background with a black symbol, to match in with my chaos army, I just need inspiration for the actual symbol.
I have a couple of other figures on my table at the moment, a hag queen to lead my ghouls into battle, and a nice biggish model for my VC army. With luck I will have all three finished by the end of the month.
