Basically we've been getting lots of Chaos and Grey Knights commissions; hurrah!
First up, have a look at Luke's Bloodletter commission:
"I've never painted any Daemons before, being a staunch imperialist, and so I had to adjust my painting style. I lit my desk with a guttering candle of unclean tallow, set atop a polished skull...
In all seriousness though, daemons do require quite a different approach, with all that bare flesh. I painted some sinew and muscle tone onto key areas to make them more three dimensional. I also spent a long time on the swords, as these are key focal point."
Next up are Mark's Grey Knights:
"The client had some definite aesthetic ideas he was looking to incorporate into this force. The silver was to be of a much darker hue than is typically seen on GKs, and the helmets and tilt plates a striking split red and white scheme.
I also used a alternating blue/white blend on the force weapons to give them real visual impact"
Both armies were mounted up on custom resin bases featuring a plethora of skulls, so it seemed rude not to set them up in some dynamic action scenes!
|Skulltaker leads his deamonic minions in an assault on the Chapel of Sanctuary. Kaldor Draigo will not let this stand!|
|A clash of steel! The savage hordes of the Skull God launch themselves wildly into the Grey Knight battleline|
