The Blue Horrors were some of the fastest figures I've ever painted, pretty much finished them in less than a day. They were a real blast to paint and I finally managed to try out one of the new blue glazes which really intensified the hue and took away the chalkiness of the some of the highlights. They're some of the most characterful sculpts I've painted recently and I can see why people go mad for collecting old Chaotic demons. Didn't get a picture of the whole crew, so this fella looks rather lonely here.

I think these are Dave Andrews sculpts judging by the chunkiness of the design and the amount of skulls on them. Whilst not being the most elegant or iconic examples of World Eaters of Khorne (that honour in my opinion belongs to the later semi-armoured assault marines also by Dave) these have a real charm of their own. Despite going for a bright, 90's paint scheme, I decided to add some wear, dirt and bloodstains to make these figures a little bit more relevant to today's tabletops - that and the fact that painting blood is super fun.
It was a really good chance to paint some figures that I would have otherwise never have got to work on and I'm really looking forward to painting up the Eldar Titan for the local store's next competition. It's also been a great break from painting the Harlequins and I'm happy to say that I've only got the one Troupe leader left to finish up now. After that, I'm planning on painting up two war-walkers and ten scouts to form the core of the force. The best part is that Pob has got back into painting again and has been knocking out some rad old fantasy figures with his kid Rhys. So stoked when stuff like that happens!
