Chaos Possessed – Paint in Progress #1

I built these Possessed a few years ago. I had a list idea at the time for a big local tournament with them, so I put these together. Pictured below are 4 of the 7 I built, the other 3 haven’t got paint on them yet.

These were hobbled together with assorted bits and then I messed around with green stuff to try to create something. I wanted to practice sculpting, so I just went nuts working on the unit of Possessed. Some of those experiments worked well, others not so much, but that’s Chaos, right?

Anyway, if you’re wondering why the unit is very derpy then that’s why.

When I built the unit, one of the things I knew I wanted to do was have fun painting them. I mean, you can’t look at this unit and take it seriously. So, it’s another good place to play around, and that’s what I’ve been doing.

Most of the painting on these models has been pretty standard tabletop for me. I have been trying to work on some quick and dirty blending on the armor though. That way I can give units like this a bit of a push in painting without spending the time I do blending armor on HQs. It’s been pretty successful overall I think.

The skin and mutations has been where I’m playing the most. I’m messing around with color combinations, blends, techniques, etc. Nothing earth shattering going on there, just enjoying some unrestricted experimentation and having fun.

I have no idea when I’ll finish the unit off. I haven’t been particularly motivated to paint lately, so I’ve been chipping away on the unit here and there. Sometime 2018 I’d say ;)
