Flayed Ones

Gosh these took a while to complete. But with them done, I now only need to paint my Nightbringer to get to 3,000 points and be able to participate in the Apoca-Fez game at the end of July.As per them immortals, they came from eBay. I bought twelve of them around Christmas time last year, in several batches. Some claws were missing, so I’ve ended up with only eleven of the little critters. I’ll look into making some additional claws (either casting or building from green stuff or plasticard, not sure yet) at a later time.After the usual “Age of Bronze” treatment, I painted the fleshy parts with a basecoat of Tallarn Flesh, followed by little marks of Rotting Flesh. To add an overall feeling of decomposition, I added patches of various washes - Thraka Green for moldy bits, Ogryn Flesh for dried blood, and some Baal Red for fresher blood. I painted over the chest symbols with Burnished Gold as per usual, however left the eyes as-is – they’re very receded and I was unsuccessful at spotting them with Scorpion Green.The claws were painted sepately at first (Chaos Black undercoat, then a coat of Boltgun Metal). I glued them on once the bodies were fully painted, touched them up with Boltgun Metal, then washed with Badab Black. I them added Mithril Sliver to the bottom of the blades, and a bit of Baal Red wash on the tips. I finally varnished the lot with Vallejo’s matt varnish (Model Color range).
