Soul Grinder Work in Progress

Here are the latest pictures from my work in progress. As I've told you before, right now im working on my second Soul Grinder. I really love the Soul Grinder! It's a really cool figure, plus it is awsome in game (especially with the Phlegm upgrade).

Originally I was supposed to go for a black skin with shadow grey highlights. This made the entire figure look unfinished. It looked like I had painted the metal parts and didn't bother with the daemonflesh. So I decided to go for another colour.

Since I wanted an Undivided Soul Grinder I went for a neutral color, meaning I had to avoid purple, pink, red, green, brown, blue and white. I ended up using Khemri Brown. This is a lighter brown with a lot of Bleached Bone likeness so I figured I could paint this brown without making it look Nurglesque. The flesh will recieve a wash of Gryphone Sepia or Devlan Mud, and then I will try several highlights with Dheneb Stone or Bleached Bone mixed into the color. I want to avoid using it pure, since I have to paint the spine on the entity as well...

I want to apply typical Iron Warriors markings, like the yellow/black-striped warning markings on the figure, but I can't seem to find any space to paint the markings. The picture above shows the only place that has recieved the markings so far.

Meanwhile on another site on the internet:
Games Workshop has finally made a new Chaos Daemons article, and this time it's nothing less than Tactica: Daemons! Hopefully this is a hint that the Second Wave will be released soon (Plastic Tzeentch, plastic Plaguebearers), but I'm only wishlisting...
Anyway, it's a great article, so if you're not registered at Games Workshop, do it and read The Astronomican!

Next week will be a 50%-50% post... I'm moving next week, so I have tons to pack and move, while we have to buy new furniture, refrigirator and the like. So I'm not even sure I have the time to make a new post. If I do, I will show pictures of a really cool figure...

Untill then, Cheers!
