Back to the brushes......

Been a little too long since my last proper update, spent the last week and a half recovering from having some teeth removed under general aesthetic, loads of pain(t) killers and plenty of time sat in front of the tv.

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.


  1. yeah, digging the crispy white , the red adds a nice contrast too , think the army might turn out to be a corker .....

    Still wanna see your kan army :o)

  2. Cheers fella.

    The Kans will come once the Sanguinary Guard are done, when I hit my stride they shouldn't take too long to do. Want to have at least the first squad done before I come up to yours.
