Blood Slaughterer - Forge World






These are pics of my latest model, the Khorne Blood Slaughterer.

This is a very delicate model - I have already had to repin a leg after battle damage.

It is an extremely well designed kit but I get the feeling that it was intended as a display model rather than a gaming piece.



Red is a swine to layer. The carapace was achieved by a mixture of terracotta and bright red in various mixtures with layers of Citadel red wash. I used Tin Bitz/Shining Gold layers to create a tarnished look for the brass, especially around the bolts.



Forge World use grey colours for the mechanical bits (see below) but I decided to go for a less realword more shiny daemonic look. I kept the mechanics fairly simple. One could go to town on them but I think it would look messy.

  1. He looks so cheerful in that first pic, like some kind of excited bug thing

  2. Looks awesome mate! Keeping it simply and going for a more daemonic feel has certainly worked very well.

  3. Wow!
    Red mayb tough to layer, or swine as you say, but man! You did an awesome job on that one :)
    I really like the paintjob.
    And your attacking spider pose is also very well executed *big thumbsup*

    Yes, I had in mind the way a crab stands up and waves its pincers when threatened.

  6. Thanks Klaus

    Shaun helped me with the final pose as it needed supergluing and I am allergic.

    I intend to reward Shaun by attacking his Dark Angels with it!

  7. I like the paint job. It has a darker, more sinister feel to it than the FW painted one. Very stunning model.

  9. Hi John
    You were right it does look better in the "flesh" the layering is subtler than shown in the photos and the brass was much more brassy no irony intended any way look forward to missing it with my las cannons on Sunday
