I totally underestimated all the skulls on the base. Took a lot longer than I expected and the ash areas didn't turn out quite like normal. Probably should have covered more area with sand.

I had also thought the runes on the sword would be easier to leave yellow as I painted the rest of the blade. This was a big proverbial pain in the ... shorts.

And the close up!

That looks awesome. The base doesn't need more sand either, it's great as it is.

I had originally planned that in July I would paint up the Daemon Prince as well as get the Iron Harriers assembled/based/basecoated. As you can see that didn't really happen. Also, please note that I didn't have the autocannon on hand that I had thought I had. I will therefore be changing the autocannon for a classic missle launcher. I must say that while the classic missle launcher chaos marine is small and way too static the missle launcher itself and the back pack are way better than the current offering. Love the old Havoc models!

Thanks for the kind words Tuatara. Just got frustrated with a couple areas that didn't turn out quite how I pictured them. I do like him standing on the mound of skulls...may be a little Blood for the Bloo..well you know....

That Daemon Prince looks absolutely amazing. I'm loving the jet pack and the trophy racks.

Thanks Hi2you2! Appreciate the comment. Making the jets fit and green stuffing it all was a challenge. This has to be the most conversion work I have undertaken on a model. Very happy with how it turned out.

Progress this month is slow again as I feared. Going to be tough to finish this squad with work and my other obligations. Without further jabbering here are a few pics of the Iron Harriers at the moment.
