Broodlord Part One

Well, I managed to fight my way to be the miniwargaming death match headliner for Sep 2012 and what better way to contest it than over a special release model. In this case Nappen and I are painting the Space Hulk Broodlord and I can’t put any WIP posts up, so these will have publication delays built in. I did however want to capture how I’ve painted the Broodlord.

At thus stage, the skulls on the base are finished. They were baseboard khemri brown, dry brushed bleached bone, washed with ogryn flesh, dry brushed bone again, layereyed with bone on the temples and then dry rushed white.

The body is base coated fenris grey. Black wash has been applied to certain areas.

The blood Angela helmets are Mechrite red washed with black, the base is straight bolt gun.

The carapace is Mordian blue. The middle sections of the carapace have been painted with a mix of 2 parts regal blue to one part black. I am aiming at having the carapace look blacker to give the appearance that the Broodlord is older than the rest of the swarm.






And the finished product:
