After a small respite and attending to other tasks, I decided it was time to make these gors ready for wanton destruction and war. With some good advice of ardentbadger and modernkiwi, I decided to go with my gut and paint these guys the way I always wanted to. Like some macabre and primal death masks!
I used a 3:1 mix of “bleached bone” and white for the warpaint, and tried to simulate it being applied by rough and inarticulate hands. Each one should be different enough, while still having a similar feel….it is chaos after all.
I based them with used and heated espresso grounds mixed with the GW grass, nothing fancy, but decent for these rank and files!
Without further adeu, I give you:
The Nightbane Herd.(excuse the large images)
I wanted him to have a primitive look, while still having some unique flare of the beasts. I don’t think they’re exactly the best artists, but they damn well know how to do a skull. Or at least smear a skull on a banner.
Each rank and file has their own unique war paint. I had a blast doing it. They’ll stand out next to my other gors, that’s for sure! Maybe even bestigors in this fashion, though slightly more refined.
A final shot.
