True Scale World Eaters Dark Apostle progress

I added some more detail to the True Scale World Eaters Dark Apostle. Most importantly, I started work on the Accursed Crozius. This is a combination of the 30k Rampagers Meteor Hammer, the Minotaurs Chaplain Crozius and a Skullcrusher hand & haft attached to a Red Butcher arm. I have the backpack mostly worked out, but there are a ton of little things to do to it before I can attach it at this point, even for a WIP shot. Anyway, enjoy...

Here are a couple of shots of just the Accursed Crozius.

World Eaters Dark Apostle WIP

Here is the tacked together WIP of my World Eaters Dark Apostle. The head is still not final. May go with a helmet, may stick with this head, may use another helmetless head. For the belt buckle I am deciding between a Chaos star with Khorne symbol or another skull like thing. Also, there is giant Khorne icon with skull-speaker that will go on the backpack. There will be sacrificial knife in the left hand, in a reverse grip. The right hand will have the Accursed Crozius.

As anyone that may follow my blog can see, I have repurposed the 'skullderpads' from an older WIP that I never finished. The model is based on the FW Traitor Legion Librarian model mixed with bits from the Bloodsecrator (seriously, who names these AoS guys?)and various other kits. Still waiting for all the Crozius bits to arrive.

True Scale Skull Champ

Okay, I can't not try some True Scale World Eaters. So here is my first attempt at a Skull Champion. This is super WIP right now. As a matter of fact, I am not even giving him the double handed weapon, but will use the right arm from the Dark Angel halberd to give him a bit more of a dynamic axe swing pose. I have a couple more True Scale World Eaters in the queue right now as well, just waiting for the bits to arrive to get started. Oddly enough, I have been having the damnedest time getting some key bits.

New arrival

Any guesses what I will doing with this Forgeworld Abaddon model?

Pick A Damn Army, your guess doesn't count, since you know...

blood in

Decided to try a new scheme for Khorne Demons. Wanted to go for something more fleshy and less cartoon bad guy red. Did a red base, dry brushing with khaki up to bone then washing with flesh wash and red wash. Did some spot washes with black. Any way, this is a test piece and was painted fairly quickly. Oh, also I was listening to black metal, so I gave it some corpse paint around it's eyes...

Long time voyeur, first time WIP'er (for this paint style)

So many ages ago, when White Dwarf was probably either still in the double digits or just graduating into the triples, I saw the now ancient Dark Angels Captain painted up in metallic green. My young mind was blown. I loved it so much. At that time, I was only really into Warhammer Fantasy however, I kept flipping back to that page. Unfortunately, I cannot find the pic of that paint job online, only a bare pewter version of the model as seen below.

Recently, Forgeworld made that image come flooding back to the front of my mind by doing a superb metallic green/blue on the Alpha Legion. That brought me back to the World Eaters and an idea I abandoned long ago. Khorne Berzerkers with dark metallic red armor. Armor that looked like it had been stained red over 10,000 years of savage butchery while vying for the attention of their cruel and bloody god. In a moment of fever dream like impulse, I pulled out the model of Zhufor that was purchased for me as a birthday gift about 9 years back and went to work. Please keep in mind, this is a test piece, not meant to be a final 'show quality' paint job. I do see somethings I might do a little differently to make some of the features, such as the helmet, pop a little more. Also, there is still bare primer left, I do intent to finish the model...

For the metallic red, the model was primed black, dry brushed with brass, highlighted with liberator gold, then washed with earthshade, black and red. Then highlighted again in liberator gold and washed red. I really wanted to capture a dark an worn look to the armor, rather than some squeaky clean new loyalist scum's scheme.
