So a while back I happened upon this blog called Dark Future Games (you should go check it out) and I noticed that one of the guys there was selling some minis. There wasn't really much I was interested in except for one thing. The Chaos Space Marine Lord with jump pack.
Now I will be the first to admit that I am a sucker for all things Power Armor, and after reading the Badab War books from Forge World, and reading Blood Reaver and The Gildar Rift, I have hand the thought of doing a Red Corsair army in the back of my head. When I saw that CSM jump pack lord, I had to have him.
This guy came with the jump pack pinned to the rest of the mini. I ripped that off so I could pain the mini without having a hard time on some of the spots that are hard to reach (and so that, as usual, I can put a lot of work into parts of the model that will never be seen).
So above is a pic of the mini primed.
Here we see the beginnings of the mini coming together. I started out with Mechrite Red, and followed it up with Red Gore. Then I put a line of Badab Black wash around all of the edges (and there are alot!). After that I washed all of the red with Baal Red.
This guy is quite a lot of fun, and I am looking forward to doing more work on him.
