    Watched the footy and then cracked on. He's actually a bit more genestealer hybrid pink in reality. The light was a bit too strong I think... Going to try paint lots of tiny little veins on his skin to try add to the bloated look. Still not sure about the horn stumps either but it's moving along...

    Only managed an hour over the whole bank holiday weekend. Bit gutted but managed to move it along a bit more! Think it needs one more session of highlighting to cover up some of the slap dash brush work and then a bit of fine detail adding. Quite happy with the bloated skin tone and stretch marks.
    Still left the horn stumps though. Not sure what to do if I remove them other than a top knot...

    That festering wound on his belly looks delicious! :)

    When you post final pics of him, can you take one from Viewing Distance/just a bit further away, so we can see what he looks like on the table / in all his glory surrounded by his filthy minions? :)

    Looking amazing, one of the best models ive seen in ages. Colour scheme is great, a few tiny blue/purple veins if you could get them that small would make that belly look like it is about to burst!

    Im going to have to be the one to say it. AFTER you started painting and all... so sorry in advance, but id wack those horn stumps off. This guy could use a topknot if you ask me!

    Cheers Ben - it was yours and starfarers scavvies that got me fired up to start a scavvy gang in the first place, so that's high praise indeed.

    I've had a bit of a mixed bag tonight, got a lot of detail done and based him but when I've come to take the final photos, I've noticed so much that I'm not happy with, I'm going to have another sesh on it to correct it. The veins looked really good when I originally did them but as they dried, they kind of spread out and looked like I'd painted them with a one inch brush. Then I tried to go back over the edges but I ended up making them a bit too uniform and when I looked at the photos, I've not matched the skin tone well enough. Bah. Complete re-do of the skin I think. And yeah, the horns might as well go too!

    And a little group shot for trollmeat. He's big - kind of helps to bridge the gap between normal scavvies and the scalies! ImageUploadedByTapatalk1428444484.381515.jpg

    Thanks for the group shot. :)

    I could really see him leading a horde of filthy scavs, he really does have the heroic proportions to be a gang hero. :-D

    Seeing him in the group photo- Yep, horns, as much as I loved the Necro-Hellboy thing, probably have to go. Don't know about a top-knot, but they are the one thing that is classic-scavvie-boss, just as being unshaven and green is classic-van-saar... Let us know how it turns out. :)

    I think the paint job looks fine. And the group shot really helps tie them all together. Looking good!

    Very nice. I think the top knot is the better choice, after seeing how well it turned out.

    Amazing mate love it. 10/10. Skin really looks great, stands out against the dull greens and rust.

    Open it?! I'm going to tear her limb from limb ;) I know what you mean though - it did pain me to open the packet a bit. Ive been recently inspired by @jonbo's reckless attitude to rare/valuable stuff after seeing how awesome it can turn out. Fingers crossed, eh? ;)

    I was just chipping paint off the Cawdor leader model with a toothpick - when it hit me this is a 20 year old model, I'm not a modeller I'm a antique restorer!
