Thor’s Workbench: Chaos Terminator (WIP)

In an effort to get models ready for an event at the end of this month, I started working on this Chaos Terminator. I did finish off the last Obliterator I needed but forgot to get a shot of him.

This model is 99% done, I just have to go back over and make sure I didn’t miss anything before basing it. One of the arms is almost done and the other I have not started yet but the arms go quickly. I was hoping to get this model done by today but it’s not looking like that’s going to happen…ah well.

Once this guy is done I have one more Terminator and I’ll be ready for the event and that will also finish off my Terminator unit to have them fully painted finally.

  • Looking good, I’d like to see him with the arms. The eyes are nice.

    Get some shots of the oblit!

    • Yeah, I’ll get some shots of him, the Oblit. He’s still WIP, at least in the sense his base is not done, but the rest is.

      I didn’t put the arms on in this shot to avoid paint rubbing off since he’s not sealed yet. I tend to work on the torso, get that all done and sealed, then I position the arms after to get angles for highlights and such.

      Can’t wait to see him finished its lookin fantastic.

    Looks great. You might consider going just a TINY bit lighter/brighter on the highlights of the ropes on his spike racks in order to give them some more definition.

    • Thanks.

      Good catch on the rope and racks. At this stage they have their mid-tone highlight and I forgot about the extreme highlight.

    I just Love your paint scheme on this army!

    • Double plus. I only looked at the small pics and didn’t realise the amount of work that you’d done until I looked at them in full size. Nice work!

    • Me too, and I don’t meant that in an egotistical way. I enjoy all my schemes on my armies but this one is by far my favorite to work on.

  • JD Brink

    Nice job on the glowing eyes! I’ve been trying to figure out how to do that without it just being a big unilateral blob of color.

    • It’s honestly really simple. I just paint the entire area as I would normally and then come in with the glow color really thinned down, like really thin. I two usually around two coats of that and you get the result in the pics. I make sure I clean the thinned out paint off the eye lenses though, I paint those prior.

      So long as the paint is thin enough then you’ll get that transparent glow effect. Takes a little practice though just to get used to working with such thinned down paint and to learn to go light and let it dry before trying another coat.
