Speed-painted Avatar of Khaine

I set myself the challenge of painting this fellow in a weekend, and pretty much succeeded.

The challenge to myself was part of my drive to achieve a better balance of effort-to-reward, hopefully resulting in painting more, faster. Citadel's new Contrast Paints are a godsend for this, allowing me to block in forms very quickly and needing only minimal touch-up and highlighting when done.

This fellow is actually a bit more impressive in the flesh, when you are instantly stuck by his huge mane of green hair, which vibrates against the red of his body. I also like his Kubuki-like face. Plus his gory hand with its string of blood achieved by gluing a bit of clear nylon to his finger before applying the gore.

Painting more, faster will let me finish projects quicker and so avoid the doldrums of wallowing in a box of half-painted minis. I literally have such a box, which I dub the Box of Shame. It's currently getting emptied as a satisfying rate.


  1. Nice! I always like that bit of thread technique for dripping stuff, whether it's gore or slime or industrial waste or whatever. The fade from ash grey to white hot came out really nicely, too.

  2. I don't known if here is the right forum to say this I am very glad for what Prophet Ogbeifun did for me i meant dr ogbeifun through a friend he helped win a court case of divorce few months ago and when i contacted him he help me to cast a death spell on my mother inlaw who was really troubling my life and future, she never wanted my progress, each time I get a job from a company, I get drove back because of the witch craft mother inlaw I have, I never knew my mother inlaw was the one troubling me, until one day I contacted Dr Ogbeifun for help and he told me Justine my mother inlaw is the one troubling me and he help me to cast unto her a death spell. I am happy because the evil doer is dead and ever since then my life have turn around for good things now work fine for me and am now a happy living beautiful with my family, thanks to Dr Ogbeifun. i recommend you to dr Ogbeifun if you have any kind of problem he will help you restore your marriage life back again. contact him via email or call/whatsapp him via +2348102574680
