Some more stuff for my HeroQuest project. Two on a row, wow! Among the Hasslefree ranges I found a wonderful Chaos Lord. As my previous original HQ Chaos Warriors were painted in black, I thought it could be a nice chance to make something different and pour some colour on. I d't take too much risk anyway, I went for classic red.
|Man, I feel like torn into pieces|
So this was like he was supposed to look:
|Does this colour make me look angry?|
But I must confess something. I didn't feel comfortable with it. Not at all. This is one of those things that I see other people master but I can't make it work. Honestly, I've seen other people's Chaos Warriors in every colour imaginable and I drool all over. But I made this one and felt totally clumsy. Ouch.
So I came up with an alternate solution. What if I tried brass?
|Then this happened|
|Trying to play with camera's colour balance|
|Now I feel chrome and shiny|
|Ahh, it's so hard looking good for battle...|
The brass look works better for me. The pics look too gritty and dirty, but in hand transitions look smoother. Don't know, maybe I have the image of Mordred fom the Excalibur movie way too attached in my mind, but I kinda prefer this metal approach rather than the coloured stuff. Ahhhh, when my Pantheon of Chaos
KS minis arrive I guess I'll have another chance to see what I dare to do...
Brillitos, ¡brillitos! Ya tiene nombre. Brillitos el Campeón del Caos.ReplyDelete
"Brillitos". La Hueste de Brillitos el Campeón del Caos. Que alguien salga a la batalla con ese nombre demuestra su valor más allá de toda duda :DDelete
"Brillitos" el Campeón del Caos y su mascota-engendro "Meneíllos". Yo lo veo.Delete
Ouch. Ésa no la he visto venir... :D :D :DDelete
Not a gentleman to be crossed clearly.ReplyDelete
I bet so! However, that's what our heroes will be forced to do when they enter the dungeon...Delete
Great looking warrior! I love the armour colour.ReplyDelete
Thank you! I gave it a thought or two, I was quite unsure of this was going to turn out!Delete
Looking good! The brass looks way better than the red, as if he's gotten meaner with the colour change.ReplyDelete
Thanks! I like brass better too, may have to repeat it on more armour pieces, hehe.Delete
He looks great mate - fine in red, but even meaner in brass!ReplyDelete
Thank you! Metals always add some appearance!Delete
That's a nice idea! While I liked the original red, the brass looks good!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I must confess I wasn't comfortable with the coloured approach. Though it works fine for Space Marines or sci-fi in general, I feel this kind of armour asks for some kind of metallic look. Glad you like it!Delete
Now is a Slaanesh champion? XDReplyDelete
Haha, he needs more purple! :DDelete
Nice figure, like the pose, nice to see something chaos by another figure company, really reminds me of the olden days of GW's chaos range.ReplyDelete
And I have to say, I prefer the Brass look as well over the red, really makes him stand out as a man of importance in any warband....
Thank you! Right, the mini is distinctive, yet keeps the flavour, nice balance. It's been a real pleasure to paint (and re-paint!)Delete
He wants more gore ... more dirt ... more rust ... and you realise I'm being a total hypocrite as I can never dirty up my own chaos minis too much, LOL ... ^_^ReplyDelete
Nice work Suber!!!
Hahaha, thanks! I'll try a totally different style for future minis!Delete
