Look what I dragged out of the warp folks! This is not just possessed….this is Greater possessed.*
Oh dear…I don’t feel much love for this model. I feel I rushed it just to get another miniature done. I am also not a massive fan of most of the “possessed” style miniatures that Games Workshop has produced over the years. Anyone remember the Chaos Forsaken that came out for Warhammer Fantasy? What a flash in the pan those models where, they are now discontinued, which for a “relatively new” plastic kit feels kind of telling…
I probably should not have picked a legion that has such heavy”possession” themes then right?! The problem is, I absolutely love the lore and the idea behind possession – and the Greater possessed are such a neat idea! I absolutely love the other Greater possessed in the Shadowspear box set however, so I used this guy as a bit of a warm-up.
As I mentioned, I feel bad that I ended up rushing this miniature. The underside of his claw is umm… not exactly pretty from a quality of paint scheme point of view. But he is done, and I learnt a few things on the way. Mainly that I really can’t paint bone/horns, so I will have to put effort into refining my technique and colour choices in future.

I will check it out, thanks!
may i ask you, how you base your Word Bearer models?
And how you paint the basing material?
It fits you Chaos Models very well.

Thanks a lot, we appreciate any help to continue and grow Tale of Painters 🙂
For horns i use Karak Stone as a Basecoat… or you use Garfys Plague Marines Tutorial for horns, i use it for Tyranid claws.
They look very unique, and i think they would match your scheme.
