All That’s Left Is Blood – Part 10

So whilst my ears have been filled with the braying of sonic weaponry over the past month the roaring of chain-axes has never been far from my thoughts. Now it’s time to add a couple more battle brothers to my latest squad of Khorne berserkers. And whilst the rest of the warband spill blood for the Skull Throne someone still has to carry the banner…convertordie-khorne-berserker-banner-1

    Something very basic and brutal about that chopping arm. Like a mid battle bodge job. Nice touch and the subtle green on the icon works really well.

      Exactly – I was thinking of the scene in Horus Rising (I think??) where a space marine get’s his hand trapped and chops it off so he can keep on fighting – except of course with a slightly more aggressive World Eaters twist!

    Cracking job mate – great pose. I was just admiring the subtle colour and crispness on those dangly icon skulls!

    • Wudugast

      Cheers mate! I’ll admit I worried over those skulls a lot, and they were one of the last bits to get painted, but in the end they were really straightforward – just a base coat of ushabti bone, then wash different areas with different colours, then a quick highlight. I find it helps differentiate the skulls from each other and gives them a bit more character. Instead of just being some skulls the guy found and stuck on his banner their individual weathering suggests that they have different ages and origins, and thus that each one once belonged to someone significant – perhaps a particularly noteworthy adversary or a fallen battle brother.

    I love the brutal look of him, and the white armor looks great compared to the traditional red berserkers. Just enough gore to make it awesome but without going over the top

    • Wudugast

      Cheers! I think the white armour is quite utilitarian, it doesn’t really tell you very much other than that he’s not that fancy. The viewer needs to look elsewhere to find out what kind of man he is – and that puts the focus squarely on that grim-looking helm and the spike arm. Oh and that huge banner probably gives a few clues as well!

    This guy looks very cool, and pulls off the non-traditional scheme very well.

Speak, damn you!
