A couple of days before the surgery I made a lazy start on the second of the Sanguinary Guard, and managed to finish it in the last couple of days. Not the best paintjob as I was (still am) a little fuzzy from the pain killers but it'll do when it's in a squad.
Decided to go a different route with the base compared to the test figure, added more rocks using small slate chips, and swapped the green static grass for some 'Highland Tufts' from Army Painter. Its a bit more fiddly to use compared to scattering static grass over the base but is much more precise. The taller grass also gives more depth to the base compared to regular static grass.
Still working on getting the rest of the army assembled (10 Sanguinary Guard, 3 Sanguinary priests and a counts-as Dante left) so i'll have some bare plastic wip's in the next few days.
Thanks for reading.
