    The fans are computer fans built into a painting booth at my local hobby club. There is decent lighting in the Spray booth so I have been using it as a makeshift lightbooth. lol

    Finished 5 Blood Warriors. Each one took about 2hrs. Which is about three times my normal speed.

    They are quite clean. Normally, that's awesome. But they look like they need more blood effects

    Once the army is done I will go in and free hand some blood stains/splatter and gore on all Khorne Bloodbound.

    Looks good @LizardWizard . Nice colour palette between the red and orange highlights. Clean and crisp!

    Really great stuff, I wouldn't have guessed you spent only 2 hours on each of them!

    I batch painted them as a unit. It really sped things up. The trim was the time consuming portion.

    It's always those little sections that consume all the time & effort. There is no real shortcut for all that tiny and precise brushwork.

    I have never been a huge fan of demons. They lack personality and agency minus the very few named characters. I find a mortal who knowingly serves one of the Ruinous Powers to be more narratively interesting. That being said, someone recently gifted me an unpainted Skarbrand that had been collecting dust on their hobby desk. So I will paint him up eventually.

    Oh I think you could give him some character ;P a little blood and gore here, a little there - maybe rework the pose, paint him up to fit your ‘mortals’ and hey presto a nice bloody centre piece better collecting dust at his finest than as raw grey plastic sprues ;D

    Finished the five other Bloodwarriors and a Slaughter Priest with Hackblade. Next on the to do list is 30 Chaos Warriors with Halberds and a Chaos Warshrine. Still haven't settled on the paint scheme for my Slaves to Darkness units. I want it to be something that would fit with any given Chaos army I paint. I am leaning towards a white and black scheme.

    If I wasn't going purple with my chaos stuff I was going to do white armor / black accessories and go nuts with blood splatter effects which would stand out so well against the white. I think you could pull off a real good army with a similar scheme for sure!

    You were the positive feedback I needed. Lol. Going to do white armor. I will probably do the shields and helms with white and black patterns. Bars, Stripes, handprints, knots, ect. I want to do the cloaks two-toned red on one side and black on the other. Not sure if I want the outsides of the cloaks to be black or red though. I might do the leathers in back or a light rich brown. Will depend on how they look for test models.

    Hopefully, I will get a test model done before the weekend so that I can get a chunk of them finished on Saturday.

    I don't know if you need further inspiration, but this little guy is one of the coolest chaos warrior paint jobs I've ever seen (and what made me think about possibly doing my army in white)
