About the Project

I tackled a lot of painting that was on my shelf in 2020 but one of the projects I identified but didn't really get anywhere with was my old copy of the Warhammer Age of Sigmar. I started exploring options for rebasing the Khorne Bloodbound with a lava and rocks base and the Stormcast Eternals on a ruins base and then painting all of them.

Demon Shield

Valkya the Bloody’s shield is a standout portion of the miniature.  As such I really wanted to get it right.  In the end I think it really turned out well.  The key is to take your time on the highlighting.

Slaanesh Demon Skin

  • Base with Citadel Mechanicus Standrd Grey
  • Use Citadel Warpfiend Grey all over. Use two or three thin coats to cover the previous coat.
  • Wash with Citadel Druchii Violet
  • Focusing on the raised areas and avoiding the recesses use Citadel Warpfiend Grey to highlight.
  • Use Citadel Slaanesh Grey to pick out the edges that were painted with the previous layer.

Demon Horns

  • Base with several thin coats of Citadel Corax White
  • Wash with a mixture of 1 part Warpfiend Grey and about 4 parts of Lahmian Medium.  The consistency should be that of a wash.  I had to add about one more 1/2 part of Lahmian Medium to get my consistency right.
  • Highlight the upper 3/4 of the horns with Citadel Ulthuan Grey.
  • Focusing on the upper 1/2 of the horns highlight with Citadel White Scar.

A fancy cloak for the Lord

Any lord would not be complete without a super fancy cloak and despite it being a little ragged it is no less impressive.

Red Cloak

  • Base with several thin coats of Citadel Khorne Red
  • Wash with Citadel Nuln Oil
  • Focusing on the raised folds and edges pick them out with Citadel Khorne Red
  • Again focusing on the extreme edges and folds use Citadel Wazdakka Red to pick them out

Black Cloak

  • Base with several thin coats of Citadel Eshin Grey
  • Was with Citadel Nuln Oil
  • Focusing on the raised folds and edges pick them out with Citadel Eshin Grey
  • Again focusing on the extreme edges and folds use Citadel Dawnstone to pick them out

Yellow Fabric

  • Base with Citadel XV-88
  • Wash with Citadel Agrax Earthshade
  • Use Citadel XV-88 to pick out the raised folds and edges
  • Highlight with Citadel Balor Brown on smaller sections than where the previous layer went
  • Picking out extreme edges and folds use Citadel Ushabti Bone

I had no idea how awesome looking the fleshound would look when done! And it didn’t take that much work to complete it either.

Skin

  • Base the whole model with several thin coats of Citadel Khorne Red
  • Focusing on the upper part of the body and around the bumps layer with Citadel Eshin Grey
  • Wash with Citadel Nuln Oil
  • Use Citadel Khorne Red to layer while leaving the recesses darker
  • Highlight using Citadel Wazdakka Red on the most pronounced areas of skin
  • Pick out the skin bumps, the razorcrest on the back and the face details with Citadel Eshin Grey
  • Pick out the skin bumps, the razorcrest on the back and the face details with Citadel Dawnstone

Claws and Teeth

  • Base with Citadel Eshin Grey
  • Wash with Citadel Nuln Oil
  • Layer with Citadel Eshin Grey
  • Highlight with Citadel Dawnstone
  • Focusing on the sharpest points use Citadel Karak Stone

Neck Fan

  • Basecoat the fan with Citadel Bugmans Glow
  • Wash with Citadel Carroburg Crimson
  • Highlight with Citadel Cadian Fleshtone focusing on the creases and edges

Tongue

  • Base with Citadel Screamer Pink

Since I am on a little bit of a Khorne painting kick I picked out a half finished Valkya the Bloody.  I started with the wings as they are the most prominent part of the model that I still had in the undercoat.

  • Use several thinned coats of Citadel Bugmans Glow
  • Wash with Citadel Carroburg Crimson
  • Thin Citadel Cadian Fleshtone so that it flows easily off the brush.  Use a thin brush to pick out the raised scars and creases in the wings.

Painting Unhealthy Skin

I researched several different skin tones and decided to use an unhealthy light skin tone for the Lord of Khoren and the Bloodstoker.  It gives them both a very pale look that contrasts well with the scars.

  • Base the skin with Citadel Rakarth Flesh
  • Cover the entire skin with Citadel Flayed One Flesh. Use several thin coats to cover the model.
  • Wash with Citadel Reikland Fleshshade
  • Leaving the wash in the recesses layer with Citadel Flayed One Flesh
  • Thin Citadel Screamer Pink to almost a wash like consistency and use it on the scars
  • Highlight raised edges of the skin with Citadel Pallid Wych Flesh

Making Lava Bases!

After rebasing the Khorne Bloodbound on the cork I wanted to make it look like a dark brown rock. Something that wouldn’t contrast from the lava too much and yet also blend well with the dark red.

Dark Brown Rocks (Cork)

  • Use several thinned coats of Citadel Dryad Bark
  • Wash with Citadel Nuln Oil
  • Drybrush with Citadel Dryad Bark
  • Drybrush lighter than the previous coat with Citadel Gorthor Brown. Focus on the edges rather than all over.

Lava

  • Base with several coats of Citadel Averland Sunset
  • Randomly spot with Citadel Troll Slayer Orange and then use Citadel Evil Sunz Scarlet within the previous orange spots.
  • On the Averland Sunset coat randomly spot with Citadel Flash Gitz Yellow and then use Citadel White Scar similar to the Evil Sunz Scarlet within the previous yellow spots.
  • Once dry cover with think coat of Citadel Mordant Earth (I went back over the first coat with another coat when it was partially dry. Approximately 2-3 minutes after applying the first coat.

 

Khorne Bloodbound Rebasing Begins

When I originally received this set I never did anything more than use some sand or flock to base my miniatures.  Since that time, however, I have started doing a whole lot more to spruce the minis up.  The idea I had was to set the Khorne Bloodbound in the old starter set on rock based lava bases.  But before any rebasing could occur I needed to remove them from their old bases… the clipping begins!
