What feels like a long time ago, I assembled a collection of chaos marines riding on horseback with the intent to field them as Chaos Lords or in games of Apocalypse. This is the first painted horseman: the Khorne Lord.
Khorne colours are straight forward to paint, if nothing else. Basecoat in mechrite red, followed by a few dark washes and gradual lifting of the red tone using blood red and hints of oranges does the main regions very well. The gold is pure shining gold with very subtle highlights across the washed tones. The horse itself was picked out in shades of grey, bleached bone and silver (as appropriate) and makes for a moody complement to the red and gold of the rider.
