Khorne Bloodbound: Slaughterpriest

Apologies for the lack of updates recently, but the blog is still going strong! I've been grabbing painting time as and when, and the photography aspect has fallen behind... Anyway, here's a Slaughterpriest that I recently finished for my Khorne army:

This is the model that came with the "new" White Dwarf, what, last year sometime!? I just hadn't gotten around to painting him up. When I actually started, he actually came together really quickly. It's an interesting model from my perspective, as it gave me the opportunity to try out some different painting techniques.

An example is the technical paint Blood for the Blood God. This is a very interesting paint, which gives a glossy finish, and has a specific texture to make it appear blood-like. If any model warrants using it, I figured it was the Slaughterpriest! I like the technique a lot.

The skin tones were also interesting to paint. I used Flayed One Flesh, which is very similar to GW's bone colours. Again, the skin came together quite quickly once I started it.

This was a bit of a one-off, as I've now really finished my Khorne army. I'm not a big fan of GW's Chaos aesthetics, but I had the models from the starter set. I think this miniature will fit in with the rest of the army quite nicely.
