This is the second, of three, small Chaos Space Marine squad for my Word Bearers. I have tried to keep up with the balance of quality and quantity with these guys. So have built them before painting them, and tried not to worry that they aren’t “as good as I can get them”.
Quick “boy band” pic with them on a white background! 😀
I have finally got round to painting the New Fabius Bile model. He has been a bit of a favourite of mine since the Mark Gibbons artwork (posted at the bottom of this article).
I wanted to achieve a contrast on this model between Fabius’ skin coat, and his own actual flesh. He is so riddled with the Blight, that I wanted his flesh coat to have a more vibrant skin colour than his living flesh. It’s a great new model and a lot of fun to paint. I would have liked some faces on his skin coat, but that’s my one and only small gripe!
Managed to get a little bit of this chap painted. Just working through the colour palette for him at the moment, some of his skin is likely to be fleshy coloured, as I always like there to be a hint in there that this used to be a man.
A few days ago I had a game with my brother and we took a few videos. I have done my best to put these videos into a battle report. The video quality isn’t great, this was a test run and hopefully next time I will have a better camera!
