Waaaay back in February I promised to add a final member to my Chaos Terminator squad The Blessed Slaughter, bringing the numbers up to ten and replacing Sapir Redwolf, the Khorne worshipping terminator who I’d just promoted to lead his own squad. Here at last is the finished article.
As usual with painting terminators I found him to be a bit of a faff, which makes me wonder why I paint so many of them? Maybe because the part of me that’s still an impressionable teenager knows that nothing is cooler than a terminator (with the possible exception of a dreadnaught). Anyway, he’s done now – although that red eye looks rather jarring in these pictures (trust me, that’s poor photography on my part, it doesn’t look quite so harsh in the flesh).
I had the idea for this model right back in the early days, but knew – in a rare moment of personal honesty – that I didn’t have the skills to pull it off. Thus it was rather nice to have the opportunity to come back to him now and finally create something I’m pleased with.
As usual your thoughts are welcome so get them in the box below.
