Oldhammer Forum Challenge - Chaos Villager - Complete!
So, with the deadline on the Oldhammer Forum Chaos Villager challenge fast approaching, I sat down to quickly finish off the Chaos Blacksmith you saw in my post the other week.
To finish up the base, I drybrushed various different light colours onto the paving slabs to add some contrast - there's a lilac, a green, a blue and a couple of different greys all there. The piece of paper got a Steel Legion Drab base coat and a quick bone drybrush. I then dabbed in some Typhus Corrosion, wiping off the worst with my finger, to bring the stone back down a bit.
The anvil got a nice simple grey stone base with a plain Nuln Oil wash. Nothing fancy.
And here he is all together. Pleased oto have gotten a model finished, and had fun playing around with a few new paints.
Background wise, I'm thinking that his drive for perfection attracted the attention of Slaanesh, and his gold mask is riveted to his skull, driving him mad with visions of techniques and secrets beyond mortal comprehension. He uses those secrets to craft fine swords for the champions who sometimes pass through the village.
I basically took this photo to show the piece of paper behind the anvil. No other reason.
As a reminder, this miniature is available from Anvil Industry, should you want one of your very own.
