We All Scream For Eye-Scream

What with going back to work recently, my painting output has slowed considerably. However, I have managed to put the finishing touches to my Start Collecting: Daemons of Tzeentch box by getting the unit of five Screamers done.

This is a unit that I've expanded by exploiting the versatility of the set. The two Screamers that come with the chariot kit don't actually have useable tails for mounting them individually. 

Fortunately, there are spare tails in the Screamer kit, allowing those from the chariot to be repurposed, if you can pick up a couple of extra flying bases.

Personally, I think five of them will have more impact in a small game as a fast attack strike force, rather than having two of them be part of a massive bullet magnet.

In terms of painting, I did a base coat of Caledor Sky, a wash of Drakenhof Nightshade and then drybrushed with Caledor Sky again.

I then did a drybrush of Blue Horror on different parts of each model to give them a more organic look and a bit of individuality.

The horns and teeth, of which there were many, were done with Ushabti Bone and a coat of Skeleton Horde. 

The eyes, of which there were also many, including some underneath, were done with white given two coats of Casandora Yellow.

All in all, I'm quite pleased with them and I've now got a 500 point army to start playing around with when games are back on the agenda.

I think I'm going to give them a run out against some of my Blood Angels to get my head around the rules over the next couple of weeks.

In terms of painting, I've not quite broken even since my last update as a few deliveries have arrived (including one that included the spare flying bases I needed).

Acquired: 40
Painted: 57


  1. These look fab mate. They are such nice sculpts as well.

    1. They are nice, but there are a LOT of teeth and spikes!

  2. Those look really good, love the blue.

    1. Thanks. I used to have issues painting blue, but I'm getting there.
