Finished this one up today, Been working on him a little at a time to get it done for a small competition that required painting a mini that was over 20 years old. Happy with how it turned out, as well as the Khornate Icon he's standing on. Learned a lot from what was my first real base scratchbuild.

Starting off with an artsy shot.
and a closeup
The painting funk has lasted for 4 months, and I need to get my cranium out of my anal orifice and start painting again....

While on the hangouts with some folks that play 40K, we have been talking about stuff, and I went to look for a figure that I knew I had, and didn't want, that @Chaoswolf thought was cool, and found the following:
Now this is the basis for my mechanical Obliterators that I painted way back in 2003? and brought to Reapercon last year
where they got a silver medal in the open category
Speaking with one of the judges afterwards (@dks) we discussed them, and the painting dragged them down, as I said old paintjob...
Well, with my painting funk in its 4th month, I was thinking that maybe, I could re do a new one from scratch, and with all the sculpting things I have learned, as well as painting techniques, I might be able to do better...
Now Reaper forbids entering the same piece twice, but this would be a reprisal of something I did years ago....
Would this be legal as a new entry?
@Heisler care to comment?
As long as the entry is an entirely new piece and not one of those three then it would be a perfectly legal entry.
really hoping this will kick out the brain weasel painting funk!
For some reason, I couldn't cross quote so....
It's gonna be ugly for a while....
the raw components:
lots and lots of surface grinding with the Dremel tool, and sore fingers.....
But hopefully, I've learne a bit about painting and sculpting since I did those guys, and this time, there will be only one....
