Chaos Defiler: PIP #4

Finally nearing the end on this Defiler.

At the moment I’m working on the head, getting those highlights on there and picking out the details. The lower half is done, well, almost. I plan to add some blood to a claw or two but that will be after it’s sealed, otherwise it’s done.

I opted to only do a select few extreme highlights on the metal because there’s so damn much of it that it’s overwhelming. I find you can get away with it on metal because light will naturally take care of things. It’s not the same but it works and I really want to get this model done. Hours of metal highlights is not fun.

Next part will be the weapons on the head and that should go pretty quickly. If I’m lucky I’ll finish the model this weekend.

Whatcha think?


I began playing Warhammer 40K in 2006, and have been an avid player and hobbyist since then. I have also been blogging about 40K for almost as long as I've been playing it, having started Creative Twilight in 2009.

  • Looking good. What’s its back story, as far as how it ended of part of your forces?

    • Thanks.

      You know, I’ve used it so infrequently I never thought about it. I’ll have to consider that…

    Looking forward to seeing this finished. I really like the chaos symbols on the claws

    • Thanks.

      The freehand is my favorite part and I’m especially pleased with the large irregular shaped Chaos symbol. It was one of those rare cases where the end result was better than I thought it would be.
