Painting challenge.. cue dramatic music .. ta daaaaaa

I've always quite liked the 'possessed machine' thing, and this is certainly a 'characterful model. I painted as much as I could on the sprues before assembly, and this has created the sense of 'completeness' that I was after in the finished kit with no missed spots, no messy patch up paint jobs etc.

Will it ever see service on a 'gaming table? Adrian and I still potter with the occasional 40K 4th edition game so it probably will a some stage, Chaos mixed in with traitors in my favourite concept army, the Lost and the Damned.

  2. That's pretty gross...but nice job! :-)
