HELLO AGAIN! (insert nice sounding intro along the usual lines of ‘Hello, I am that guy who painted the obnoxious space bird and Garfy has invited me to talk about the rest of my rainbow daemon friends so here we go’)
Doing a box of Pink horrors was my first priority when I decided to embark on my Tzeentch Daemon army. It seemed like the place to start as I had never really painted anything as colourful or containing so many blends before. These guys were essentially my practice pieces.
I soon found that pink is a horrific colour to nail especially given how bright I wanted my horrors to be and it took a long time and a lot of playing around to land on a recipe that I felt was alright. This is why some of my horrors look darker/brighter than the others (I figured I could let these inconsistencies slide because ‘change’). I’m still not quite sold on the pink but I’m already planning my next box of horrors to hopefully rectify that.
Having finally finished my pink horror practice models I decided to be brave and move onto one of my favorite Tzeentch miniatures; The Changeling. He’s a beautiful mini and was a delight to paint as I didn’t even need to worry about messing up his face. The Changeling’s lore is both terrifying and hilarious (Cutting Slaanesh’s hair in his sleep with a stolen hellblade and sneaking some nurglings onto the Skull Throne to act as a grim sort of whoopee cushion are two of my favourite extracts) and I wanted the colour scheme to reflect his chaotic nature but also be very rich and contrasting.
The bases I used for all these models are from Micro Art Studios.

These miniatures are beautifully painted. Especially when you take a look at them each individually.
When you take a look at them as a unit, it becomes a bit hard on the eye. As a unit it might have been better if you had stuck with like two colours (like your first Horrors – purple and pink). The ones with 4 or more colours combined with the colourfull bases become a bit too much for me.
But again, incredibly well painted! 😉
I think it'd be fine if the bases weren't as colorful. If they were neutral your eye would have some grounding.
Love your work Louise 🙂
Fantastic painting,. you've nailed their Chaotic nature perfectly.

These colour combinations are mental! I struggle blending just a couple of colours in a small space so this level of blending is very inspiring. I can't imagine the time you have spent here and how crazy this would have driven you. Well done.

Love the colors. Cheers, Karl
