Nimue - Slaanesh Princess, Chaos Knight Champion - view 1

Hi there,

called this girl Nimue. Reading a book lately where this name often appears and while doing this paintjob it came to me to call her so: Nimue, a princess of slaanesh... once upon a time a small barbarian girl from the chaos desert tribes she went out to fight the world and the gods themselves.

Lovely model from GW, really reminds me of a great painting of a dark knight. I've changed the basic helmed head with one of a actual plastic daemonette from GW. Adeed some little parts here and there around the horse but nothing really big.

The base was made by a tree... ok, i'll go way more deeper (i try and hope my english will let me ): When you cut a tree like bread, i mean in such stripes to see their rings of ages... ähm, jepp - you'll get such round things. I found one in the woods, old and really crunchy... i took some parts of the middle out of it and let them dry half a year, because of not having an idea what to do with them. Now for this lady i took some parts put them on a base and had the problem that they have been still a bit crunchy. I've used 3 full packs of permanent glue to dip the base in. And let it dry a while. Chrunchy was gone and the project of painting it started...

In the past i had an army of Chaos for WHF in my mind... recently i've quitted that idea and still have the problem that the gods of chaos are knocking at my door, so i had to do something against... maybe she is a kind of saying thanks to the gods or honour an idea that has gone with the wind... just don't know.

Painted in acrylics like always. One BIG thing going on here, has been the collaberation with a very good friend of mine while staying at her house some days ago - we both gave the other one the own mini to paint on ... has been a great painting night, Vhaidra. Really thanks for that and also not to forget count_zero for a beautiful stay at hamburg/germany. Vhaidra took her time to paint the hairs and the cloak this night and really caught the right colours in my eyes... a real fun when you give a baby of yours away... this should only be done with a person you have a lot of thrust in... so don't mine doing the same, if you got someone like that... painting is about fun and this really was a total funny and new experience...

I'll do some more shots soon ...

So far... seems to be my last mini in 2008 ... Keep on happy painting!

PS: Painted for a collector!

Großartige Arbeit, Jarhead! Die Rüstung wirkt im Zusammenspiel mit der kränklich bleichen Haut perfekt zusammen.

I was so sure I'd commented on this already . . . It's a great piece, and the base is fantastic with matching hints of colour and the Slaanesh symbol on it and everything. Really good
