Hobby Update: Slaughterpriests

These 2 Slaughterpriests are Ebay rescues. They came in a large lot and were already painted to an ok level. However felt they needed a bit of work to mach the rest of the army so I added some colors washes and highlights to bring their level of painting in line with the rest.

Here is an example of what the white skinned models from the lot looked like:

All in all not bad, but as you can see the colors are very flat and the base needs retouching. I am not 100% sure what color was used for the skin, but I think it was Pallid Wych Flesh.

Tactics: Slaughterpriest are almost an auto include in any blades of Khorne list. If I was not running Tyrants of Blood I would probably have 3 in the list. They are a force multiplayer with their prayers and can also do direct damage with Blood Boil. I am currently running one with bronze flesh and one with Killing Frenzy. However I also like Blood Sacrifice and Resanguination. Honestly though any of the Blessings could be used in a given list. It is just a great selections of “Spells”. They can do ok in combat and the 6 wounds are not bad for a 100 point character, but it is still wise to keep them behind the lines cast and not in direct combat.

Paint: I started by stripping the bases with simple green and water, I just filled a pan up to the bottom of there feet and let them stand for a few days. I had to reattach Wrath-Hammer to the one Priest with plastic glue. And then I just touched up some of the little paint issues. I washed “shaded” them and then just added a little drybrush and highlights. I just wanted to give them a little more depth and contrast. In the end I am happy with how the came out.
