Part 1 was waaay back here (and it took a bit of searching for me to find, despite the CSM tag).
Anyways, The Doomed One, my greater demon of Malal is almost done! Here it is:
Greater demons have a tendency to pop out and get shot to death, so they're not that great, but for a mere 100pts., how can I resist? If it does make it into HTH, then it tends to fair quite well, no matter what it's fighting. I repainted the armor from my original color scheme as it invariably pops out of a Purge aspiring champion (which always pleases Malal greatly, fluff FTW!). Usually (but not always) its the poor bastard with the combi-melta as he's the least dangerous of my aspiring champions.
I still have my eternal loathing of basing minis (you would think that game 3 editions after I stopped over complicating my bases I'd be over that) but as this base is so large, I had to do something aside from my usual glue & flock mix. While I didn't have a spare Plague Marine helmet, I did dig out a regular CSM helmet out of the bitz box along with a CSM bolter and combat knife. These items no doubt were worn/held by the Purge marine that was so recently possessed!
Nice, simple, works for me.
I'm still outta clear coat, so the model isn't quite done. It still needs a coat of matte varnish, followed by 'ard coat to make certain areas looks wet (the bloody claws for example). However my sister's wedding is this weekend, so I won't be anywhere near a hobby shop for the next week or so (and I may be a bit late on posting next week as there will be NO hobby progress this weekend).
