Well, with this post I'm all caught up with my recent painting progress. Here is Egrimm Van Horstmann, champion of Tzeentch. I've always loved this model and I purchased him about 3 years ago. He's sat in a bag since then, until I got the hankering for painting him a few weeks back. I finished him about 3 weeks ago, and I think I put about 20-25 hours into him. Not bad, but the largest project I've done for a while. I designed his banner myself. It's not the greatest freehand, but I'm quite proud of it.
I've had the airbrush for about 4 years now, and I have slowly been growing bolder with its application. My first year with it, I just used it for priming and maybe mono-color base-coating. With projects like this, however, I think I'm getting more and more out of the airbrush. In fact, I'd say that I'm finally capitalizing on it after a long (and slow) learning curve given my very limited painting time. I would guesstimate that it shaved about 5 hours of wet-blending by brush on this model.
I don't yet have a Tzeentch contingent in my growing chaos army. As yet, it is mostly Khorne and Slaanesh. Also, I'm not a fan of the yellows and purples of Tzeentch, so when I get to my Tzeentch minions, I'll probably use a color scheme similar to that found on the model: blues and tans/browns. Blue is distinctly Tzeentch, tan is a warm color similar enough to yellow if done well.

Well, he's hardly Crystal Brush material, but for a family guy who does this as a little fun on the side, I'd say that he turned out pretty well. That's all for now. Until next time, happy painting
