Meet Chodius Virilius Clungerender:
|Chodus Virilius Clungerender stands ready awaiting all opponents.|
The previously challenged WIPster were:
Halfdan Guntsplitter birthed by the awesome Captain Crooks.
Willy Gutshagger from the imaginings of the exuberant Asslessman.
Huy-Jigo the Pin Rat spawned from the marvellous Axiom.
Arnuld Clotchewer arisen from the cerebral depths of the superb Mr Saturday Night.
Following on from such esteemed producers of quality miniatures is a hard ask, but I am happy that Chodus is about as good as it's going to get from the end of my brush.
The astute amongst you will have spotted a rather high level of similarity between my Chodus and Mr Saturday's Arnuld. This is because they use the same torso as a base and are from the same collection.
|I decided to gore him up after painting. The aim was to look as if he had just split an opponent with a massive blow.|
|For skin tone, I wanted a dynamic muscular contrast.|
|Only vibrant red hair seemed appropriate for this Thorne-Worshiping nut job.|
|I tried to make the chainmail look old and well-used, with just a hint of rust.|
This model was one of those that 'paints itself'. The pose is simple and the aspects clearly defined. It was great fun to do and I can see myself hunting down more of this range to paint in the future.
So, for my nomination to the challenge......
The Otto Von Bismark, time to get your paintbrush out of you frogs behinds and paint yourself a gore-mongering, Khorne-worshipping gladiator.
