Finishing up the Squad

So I got the rest of my berzerkers done for this first squad, so without further adieu, here they are:

First up is the finished mutant

Next is a berzerker with yet another wooden shield, what can I Say, Khorne knows defense.

Next is the second Mr. Skulls,

Now its the second running marine,

No its time for one of my Favorite, the Beast,

Finally, Semi-Permanent Leader for the Squad, His Majesty Kharn,

So there there are, in all their glory. A few things that I would like to point out. First, I am not completely happy with the way the hazard stripes turned out on the chainaxe and chainsword, I think I may try to touch them up a little bit, especially after seeing the pictures. Second, the base that the Beast is on is a Micro-Arts Studio Skull base. I plan on doing the whole army up on them, they are pretty cool. Also, on both Kharn's base and the Beasts I will be painting on some Khorne symbols on the foreheads.

Finally, what do you guys think about adding some battle damage and wear to the marines, it should look good with the verdigras brass. I did it for the first time on my Cthulhu Marine, and thought it turned out alright. That being said, I don't really want to mess up 2 weeks of painting with something that might not look good.

Tyler Out.

p.s. Aaargh! Blogger formatting is annoying me!


  1. The Beast is unreal. His pose is just screaming out that your skull is his. Cannot wait to explore your previous post and to see what else you post. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks, He was the first berzerker that I put together for the squad, I wanted the mutated arm to be something more than just hanging there. I love the dynamic pose.

  3. Looks like you had your Sunday Best on when you published this post. Hope you don't mind me throwing you a shout-out on my weekly themed top x. Cheers and thanks for sharing.

  4. I love taht rust and that kharn! What'd you use to to the rust on the gold?

  5. The verdigras on the gold is pretty easy to achieve. Fist I paint a layer of hawk turquoise everywhere i want to be gold. Then I drybrush a layer of snakebite leather to cover up a large portion of the turquise. Finally it is just a drybrush layer of Dwarf Bronze.
