I’ve been busy over the last couple of weeks and have managed to get my whole 2000pt army assembled and undercoated. This can only mean one thing, I now have to paint them all!
I decided to go with my Lord (could be a bad idea I know) as I would like to finally have my own personal avatar.
Anyway without further ado here he is. Lord Gulgamesh, Overtyrant of the Basalt Mines.
First of all, there is some nice paint job in there. But what exactly is that thing on his head / instead of his head? I can’t make out any features at all!
yeah… the mask needs work… Maybe try bits in stead of those masks…
The model is very nice, but the mask lets it down. I would flick that off and try again.
Where are those shoulder pads from?
I have to echo the thoughts of others, it’s a great model but that mask has got to go. Grab some kind of skull mask bit, like a Marauder shoulder pad or something. It would make him look loads better.
@ everyone: The mask, I must admit looked much better to me before I painted, but as the facial details I sculpted were too shallow the paint from both undercoating and normal painting therfore filled them, leaving a blank expression on his face. I have blacklined some detail in, this may make him look a little better.
@ Grimstonefire: The shoulder pads are normal marauder pads (the ones with the spikes)
@Warplock Monkey (in the Avatars thread): The body is self-sculpted from about waist height. The bottom half is a cut up BfSP Thunderer standard/musician.
the candles on the base is a really cool touch
I didn’t think the mask looked too bad, I thought he was looking where he was pointing. Maybe a helm from the Chaos Warriors box would suit him better
