Kairos Fateweaver and a Converted Lord of Change
Anyway, I'm a big fan of GW's Fateweaver model. He's a little leaner and weaker looking than the Lord of Change, but he should be. It was a fun model to paint and I'm very happy with how the feathers on his back go from purple to green. The pictures are a little dark, but I hope you get a good idea of what he looks like.
After some green stuff for his loin cloth (diaper, more like), brass rode and green stuff'd staff, and some chains for jewelry I think he comes out a really nice looking Lord of Change.
There were a few issues with the model. The biggest is that he falls over. The Bones material is soft and has good detail, but for taller figures (or at least for this one) he wants to fall forward. I'm sure the extra bits I put on him didn't help much, but the only thing I could do to remedy it is to sculpt a stone for his front right leg to lean against. Without this he falls forward way too much and takes up the whole length of a large oval base.
The other problem is that some parts of the wings crack. The paint just shows a little bit of cracking and it's a little concerning.
After Dull Cote this guy becomes a little more rigid and is fine. I like the way he came out and I think he looks good. I'm especially happy with how the raised dots on his skin fade from bright red to purple to blue to turquoise to green. I think it looks really good.
Also, I thought I should take some size comparison photos between the two.
Next week I'll have 20 Flesh Hounds up, and maybe the Pink Horrors. The week after that will be NOVA Open Battle Reports and a review of the event itself.
