I finally got a chance to start painting my mutants. The Marauder mutant is mostly finished, but still has some work to be done. Mainly, I need to do the spikes, color his beard, and put some washes on him, but he also will be getting a shield on his third arm which I have not painted yet.. I am fairly happy with how the green stuff bits turned out. This is my first attempt at painting a model in several years. For some reason I can’t seem to figure out drybrushing again, even though I’ve done it before. It just doesn’t look right. It’s hard to tell on this guy, but his pants have been drybrushed with codex gray over the base of black. His boots were also drybrushed some as well.
I decided to keep his main clothing colors black and blue to match the rest of the warband. I wanted to keep his skin tone to a human looking color instead of going another color since he’s got demon in him so that it’s easy to differentiate between the mutants and possessed. My two possessed models will be Red/Pinkish and Blue/Purplish while the two mutants will be mainly flesh colored.
I plan on trying to finish him soon. I want to paint the spikes with bleached bone/skull white and possibly bloody them up. I have to paint the beard (though I don’t know what color yet). I also want to do some washes on all of the skulls, his sword, his helmet, and his skin. I am excited and hope to have him finished, attached to a base, and in battle soon! Next up after this guy is the Daemonette who I expect might be a little bit more simple.
