My efforts to clear some of the clutter from my painting desk continue and today it’s the turn of two of the bigger miniatures that have been hoarding more than their fair share of space. Back in February when I started working on some Daughters of Khaine I called the series of posts “God of Murder” in honour of Khaine, the bloody-handed god that these elves worship. Inspired by painting up the warband I dug out these two Avatars of Khaine and got them assembled, reasoning that I could get them painted up fairly quickly. I wasn’t wrong either, actually painting them took next to no time at all. It’s just unfortunate that it took me the better part of a year to actually get on with it but we can’t have it all. Behold the God of Murder himself (or at least two statues of him, animated by dark and – presumably – gory magic).
I often thought of these as being rather small – at least in comparison to a lot of the other monsters that can be found roaming around in the age of Sigmar, but once I got these assembled it really came home to me how big they are, towering imposingly over the ordinary elves.
I’m still feeling very enthusiastic about these murderous she-elves so now I’ve got their dad’s statue collection up and running I’m hoping to tackle a few more of the Daughters themselves shortly.
