WIP: Gabriel Seth

I've been not feeling too well over the past week, sleeping lots though haha! But I did manage to kitbash a budget version of the Chapter Master of the Flesh Tearers-Gabriel Seth. He was made from mostly Blood Angel bitz.
The arms are from the Sanguinary Guard sprue. I made his chainsword by cutting off the axe head of a Glaive Encarmine.
The shoulder pads were taken from the Death Company sprues. I think the conversion was a timely one as I'll have a chance to use him in an upcoming Apocalypse game.
The legs were from the Assault Marines sprue.
The winged icon is also from Sanguinary Guard sprue. I primed the mini black and basecoated him Red Gore. Had to layer on Red Gore for about 2 to 3 layers. The highlights were done using Red Gore and Yriel Yellow mix.

Wood Elves
Since I'm converting named leaders I thought I do one for Wood Elves as well, and the model in question is Araloth.
He was used to great hilarity during a recent Fantasy Battle by crazyrat. We nicknamed him the Pokemon Lord. The bitz are from different model ranges. The horned head is from the new Wild Riders sprue. The eagle is from a Reaper Miniatures bit. The cloak, spear shaft and knives are from the Glade Guard sprues. The main body itself is from Wargames Factory's Greeks Heavy Armor Hoplites.
I had fun converting him up, though its unlikely I'll use him in battles.

I found a Knight Hospitaller (I think that's his name) from Infinity Miniatures. I got him a while back. Painted him in a different scheme. I think all the talk about getting into Infinity from my gaming group motivated me to paint one up lol! They are pretty nice models.

Have a great week ahead everyone. Take care and stay healthy ;)

WIP: "Litte Red"

Woohoo!! Its the weekend again! And time to paint and sleep, in no particular order haha! I managed to get a tiny miniature painted. Yup, that's the Deathwalker mini from Privateer Press. An excellent model by itself that looks even better with Goreshade. I'll probably paint him up another time. I'll be using this mini for an upcoming narrative campaign. Gonna call her Little Red.
I was also inspired by Alma Wade from the FEAR game series. She really creeped me out when I played the game. 
It was fun and challenging at the same time painting her. She's smaller than most minis, but no by too much.
Back view. I used a deeper red for the inner dress and a brighter one for the outer layers. For the dress, I used a basecoat of Red Gore mix with Black (60:40). I then layered on pure Red Gore. Then Red Gore mix with Evil Sunz Scarlet on the inner dress. The outer dress was layered with Evil Sunz Red and Yriel Yellow.
I think she makes a great rogue psyker as well for those who play Chaos.
Not sure why this pic is brighter than the rest. My camera does this on its own sometimes lol! But it does reveal the brighter reds of the mini as i painted it.

Have a great weekend ahead everyone! And a warm welcome to the month of May :)
