Third possessed marine WIP. Really happy with the tone of the red on this guy. I don’t know the reason why, but whenever I take a break from painting my Word Bearers the formula for the red I like just slips my mind, it takes me a few practice models to get it right again. This never happens when I paint my Ultramarines!
It’s been quite a while since I have painted anything, and I’m feeling a little out of practice. Dissertation has come and gone, and I have found an hour or so at the end of every day of exam revision to get a bit of painting in to wind down and let all the information sink in.
Out of all the possessed models I have, this was my “worst” model, I just don’t like the legs, they make no sense, even for a daemon infused monster!
Obviously not finished yet, but wanted to share my work in progress!
First real possessed miniature done!
I think eventually I will paint another squad of these up but put a lot more time into each mini. To me, the possessed models epitomise what Chaos Space Marines are all about. The only part of the models I don’t like is that the odd pair of legs is a bit off or in the case of the one that is running just seem a little silly. But that’s the beauty of possessed, you can convert them loads!
Very Early work in progress picture of my next Possessed Marine.
The only thing finished here is the purple claws, everything else needs touching up, especially the metal areas and such. And the skin will be a little paler.
The concept I am trying to achieve is that these are still Chaos Marines. They share their bodies with daemons but they are still in control. So the purple is the Daemon coming through, and the skin has hints of purple in their, but essentially this is still a marine. He is still in charge (or so he thinks)!
I managed to pick up some miniatures after I made a short journey back home the other day! I was determined to find some models that I know I will be using in actual games.
I know Possessed are terrible according to the internet, but the truth is they are very relevant to Word Bearers and I reckon they can be made to work.
Eventually there will be nine in total, but I need to purchase some more to finish the squad off. The squad leader is a limited edition possessed champion from an old box set.
It is quite possibly the worst miniature ever created. It’s so bad I know I have to have it in my army! And with it being a rare limited edition model it makes it even better! What’s great about this model, is that it comes with a plasma pistol… which Possessed can’t even use!
Finally finished this monster!
I can’t say it the best miniature I have ever painted. The raised metal areas are a real pain, and the “feet” of the miniature are ridiculous. They really make the whole model deserve its nickname of “Helturkey”.
But I do like the overall shape and the the theme of the model. Pilot merged with Daemon merged with vehicle. But I think it could have been executed much better in areas. Plus the model is a real paint to glue together.
Anyway, here are some pics! I will be finishing the base later tonight.
