Some of you will recognize this as the model I use as my counts-as Huron Blackheart. I also use him as a stock Chaos Lord and had to get some alternative arms painted up for it. So, it’s very much like what you saw before but with a different lightning claw and a power fist.
The power fist technique is something new I decided to try. In the past I’ve just painted the entire fist that glowing purple/pink and it’s looks OK but not great. Seeing as this is a Chaos Lord, I figured I’d put some more effort into it and come up with something better. It’s not perfect but I do like how the fist came out. I borrowed largely from Ron’s technique for my process.
Oh, he now a name now, as the article title indicates. Sometimes I will use a game as inspiration to name a model, if I haven’t come up with something already, and that’s the case here. I was playing a game against Eldar and getting my ass handed to me; there was no way I could win. My Chaos Marines were fighting a Seer Council with a Farseer and my Aspiring Champion was in a challenge with the Farseer. The Farseer had the shard, an instant death item, thus the Aspiring Champion issuing the challenge. Once I realized all was lost I did a heroic intervention with my Chaos Lord, who was unwounded and with everything to lose, and smashed the Farseer in the challenge. Thus the name Psykill was created because I’m a bit lame and like the play on words ;)
