Blood Reavers – Complete!

A couple of hours last night and a few today have let me complete the 10 Blood Reavers!

I’ll skip the main steps outside of highlighting the Khorne Red with Evil Skullz Crimson, which went better than it had previously. While doing highlighting in general, I’m noticing the paint dries too quick on my palette, causing issues when doing layers and sharp lines. I’m going to have to investigate this further.

Regardless, I’m very happy with how they came out, highlighting issues notwithstanding. I’m still not entirely sure whether I’m going too crazy with the Blood For the Blood God, but if there was ever an army that would lend itself to it, it’d be this, wouldn’t it? I’m trying to use it on the more 3D elements of the bases, though, to create an interesting look. I also upped the amount of snow on the bases to balance the colors out some and to allow the BFTBG to pop out.

I’m particularly happy with the one with the top knot. I somehow didn’t mess up the face on the model, and the teal really allows the model to jump out.

All 10 models finished.
