Bloodletter of Khorne with Shield

This fellow was a small project that I undertook a while ago with the idea being to enter him for a painting competition in the WFB category. I figured that I had already got plenty of possible entries for a W40k entry, but could do with something in the fantasy department. Happily, daemons can fulfil both categories very well with a change of base (indeed, daemons are supplied with both square and round bases for just this intention).The conversion work here was minimal: just the additional of a chaos warrior shield to the out-stretched hand of a standard bloodletter, based on a square base with a pile of skulls near the front from the citadel basing set.

The actual painting followed my established bloodletter scheme, along with the flaming hellblade. I did take my time on this one, carefully picking out each and every single bump along the back with my triple zero paint brush. Other than taking my time, nothing out of the ordinary was done here.

Overall I was pleased with the result; but sadly he didn't pick up any prizes.

I like that it looks really nice with the shield, that gives me a few ideas on how I could have converted my second unit of bloodletters, but there already finished,

Nice model, excellent paint job.
I like the shield, it looks like he just got done killing someone and has decided that the large shield might be useful!

Great conversion! It works well with the model.

Thanks Master Darksol & Magilla Gurilla. I like this fellow a lot, and although I'd like to take up Anton's idea of a whole unit of them with shields, I think this is going to remain a one-off piece for the moment.
