Blood and Souls for my Lord Arioch 2

Another two Chaos Warriors for the Songs of Blades and Heroes Warband that is being planned for the near future. Hopefully, these figures will see some action sooner rather than later and a possible campaign too boot.

Both of these figure have been recently painted and submitted in the Analogue Painting Challenge and there will be more from this genre to follow shortly.

Some figures just never look right when first painted and this was one of them. The cloak, armour, shield and dragon crest on the helmet changed colour several times. The original colour scheme was to have a red dragon and golden armour, however this just didn't sit well with the miniature.

The armour became steel and the cloak and shield red after several base coats on the shield to pick a suitable colour. Yellow, not matter how dark just didn't look right; the juxtaposition of the colours didn't suit either the subject or the painter. So in the end, you have what you see here, nothing new or stunning but a colour scheme that suits the figure and the painter too.

Thats all for now

Excellent work on a couple of venerable minis. I also really like the low profile hex bases: very neat!

Great looking character figures, Ross. I know what you mean about revising color schemes - sometimes you have to actually have the figure painted to see the effect/results. Your final choice came out lovely. Regards, Dean

I know what you mean with getting the right colour scheme for the figure and you go there in the end. The first figure looks very good also with the heavy fur coat.

I just posted a comment but for some reason it is not showing. Apologies if it now comes through twice.
Superb painting on both figures.

Thanks Gaz, the hex bases are from Warbases and are great for pre-slotta figures.
Cheers, Ross

Thanks Dean, like you say sometimes you need to get the paint on the figure to see the full effect.
Cheers, Ross
