From the Work Bench: Chaos Warrior Test Model

Good Morning Everyone,

Just a quick post here to show off my chaos test model. You may remember my less than impressive first foray here

Gotthammer, pointed out that I was using too pastel of a color scheme and I couldn't have agreed more. However, I wasn't coming up with anything better in my head so I put it on the back burner.

Then, I found this article ( BTW if you don't read The Back 40k you really should give it a try, its a fantastic site). Part II in particular really got me thinking about the quality of colors/paints that I used and the foundation that I build them on. So with the gears turning and a successful outing with the color purple on my WarMachine models I came up with this:

I'm as pleased as punch with how it came out and I think a whole army in this color will look pretty swanky. Well what do you think? Questions and comments are always appreciated.

Here is another pic in a different light... for some reason he looks blue here:

Have a Good One,


  1. I like it. Kind of a 40k pimp look. You just need some slave girls to follow him around.

  2. I like it. not too over the top, very subdued color. You should be very proud.

  3. Very nice.

    The grass on the base might be a bit too friendly though. He looks sort of like a Picnic Marine. ;)

  4. @ Farmpunk thank you very much, I was really surprised at the depth of color that I got from Ron( FTW )'s red painting tutorial.
    @ SandWyrm yeeeeeah he does kinda look like "Chaos invades the lawn and garden dept," right now. I especially need to get it fixed if I am going to go to make them lean towards Nurgle.
