Flesh and the power it holds....

   Greetings, If you have been reading the blog here and there you have most likely realized im a new contributor. To share a little about my gaming background, I am primarily a 40k player that dabbles in Fantasy, Infinity, and role playing games. I started regularly playing 40k in the beginning of fifth edition and have been gaming, modeling, and painting ever since. I play Astra Militarum with various imperial allies and Warriors of Chaos for Fantasy.

   Im a little burnt out of 40k after attending the Nova Open so I've decided to turn my attention to my recently purchased WoC. Let just start off by saying that besides some of the really dated models i absolutely love the entire range less the slaughter brute/Vortex Beast. Daaaat arm.... Its like its raising its hand in class or something. Lucky for me their are tons of awesome third party monsters out there.
Death-The Sound of Perseverance(1998)
    My design philosophy for this army is quite unique. While sitting at my hobby desk i started to enter the realm of chaos known as youtube, Eventually i found my self listening to the band Death and their album The Sound of Perseverance. This album is just down right evil and i wanted to make my army loosely based on the colors in the album art and ooze of the macabre themes in this album. Give it a listen if your painting one night, the vocals are an acquired taste but i love them.
   I began by priming white to keep the reds bright. I then airbrushed the two shades of red on the warriors.
I saw red...

 After that i began painting a test Warrior and you can see below how he came out. I am very happy with this scheme but i think i will do the boots darker on the rest of the models. I can always go back and dry brush some gray highlights on their black capes at a later time. Right now i am focused on getting the whole unit to the guy below level. With the next End Times book rumored to be Chaos oriented im trying to get these guys done so at least i can field one painted unit in my army when the book drops. Im going to move onto the Chaos Hounds i have next. They seems really easy to paint and i will write up a simple walk through on how i do those. As you've noticed by now im no award winning painter but i do try to get my models to a decent tabletop standard. My main colors right off the album art for my army will be, khorne red, mephiston red, abaddon black, and ceremite white. Im looking forwards to seeing how the army turns out!


  1. Looking good! Always a fan of these models. They are some of the best in the game IMO. Painting a scheme based on music that inspires you is also pretty cool. Should save some clips on your phone to play during a game for added effect :).

  2. I'm surprised the paint scheme isn't inspired by Bolt Thrower.

  3. Nice! I like the paint chips on the shield. Now they have to do battle with Lizardmen to prove their mettle, or metal I should say.
