Forge World Chaos Dwarf Daemonsmiths COMPLETED!Catattafish 06-16-2012

Hey Guys,

I stumbled across your forums while searching Google for some images.  I am a pretty good painter and had the opportunity to paint a Chaos dwarf for the first time the last few days.  My main platform for painting has been Crimson Fist Space marines, Evil Sunz Orks, and soon to be Necrons.

I thought I would share my results.  If anyone would know, you guys would....Did I get him right?  Is there anything wrong in the fluff that doesn't fit with the paint scheme?

You might not be able to tell but his skin has a very slight greenish tinge to it to make him look evil, his eyes are slight yellow, but again hard to see in the video of a picture.

The best way to show you is in my 360degree HD Video here....

Any comments would be appreciated.  I also do tutorials so feel free to subscribe...

Thank you very much for the kind comment!  What do you think fluff wise?  I don't know anything about the Chaos Dwarves and I didn't have access to any codex, etc.  Thanks again mate,

Super cool paint job.

Only thing that doesn`t fit with my fluff:
The Dark Castellan is supposed to hold the head of an old Sorcerer-Prophet, who had turned himself into stone.
It would  be a relic which comes instead of the Army Standard.

So the bloodied head would indeed go against the fluff, but on the other side, why shouldn`t the bloody head of a defeated enemy fulfill the same function?

BAH!  That is exactly the information I needed before painting him!  Lols.  I didn't get why he was holding a Chaos Dwarf head, I was going to paint him as a regular Dwarf (enemy) but the sculpt was too Chaosy....  Now it all makes sense!!  Thanks guys!  If you know the three models I am working on, is there any other heads up I should know about before I paint them?

If you are looking for some fluff references - why not have a look in the wiki?

There is a lot of information in there - maybe it would be of help!

RE: Forge World Chaos Dwarf DaemonsmithsCatattafish 06-16-2012

Hey Guys,

Thanks so much!  I did have a look at the wiki but I didnt really any find any reference to colours.  Ie when the dwarves turn to Chaos, do their eyes go red? yellow? etc?  Does their skin turn a specific colour when they go Chaos?  

I have 2 more models to go so when I am done I will be posting them here.  One of them has Ice for half the base.  It is a REALLY cool effect.  If you are interested, Check out my video Njal Stormcaller.  (I also have a tutorial on how to make the ice base as well)

Skin or eye color is not really explained much. I believe I read somewhere that their skin get's a slight pallid grey tinge, but I can't remember where. I image beyond the tusks and the occasional hooves they don't deform all that much though! That said though, you can definitely have a little bit of freedom.

[quote]Ie when the dwarves turn to Chaos, do their eyes go red? yellow? etc?  Does their skin turn a specific colour when they go Chaos?  [/quotw]

They don't "turn" - Chaos Dwarfs are an entire race of corrupted Dwarfs. They have some mutations (tusks, horns, etc.) but their colouration is the same as normal Dwarfs, in general. They tend to have black beards and possibly slightly darker skin. Some people paint the flesh grey or whatever, but canonically there's no reference to that happening - there's no reason you couldn't do them that way though.

Great paintjob, obviously.

RE: Forge World Chaos Dwarf DaemonsmithsCatattafish 06-18-2012

The paint stains were using two different colours

-dab on or lightly brush 50/50 of Citadel Bestial Brown / Tamiya Clear Red (x27)
-Lightly dab your brush in Tamiya Clear Red and randomly dab it on and around where your 1st step was painted
-Lastly lightly dip your brush into Tamiya Clear Red and holding the brush close to the model, use a toothpick to flick the hairs of your brush so the brush sprays some splatter on the model where you want it.  (DO A TRIAL RUN ON A PIECE OF PAPER SO YOU LEARN THIS TECHNIQUE FIRST BEFORE APPLYING IT TO YOUR MODEL!!!)

Hope that helps

Really nice job dude. Where did you get the rocky bases from the figures are standing on or did you make them.
