Thanks a lot for the response to the first part of this little series gang. Much appreciated.
Even though I haven’t been posting I have been building and painting so expect a post each day or so for the next few days.
Unlike MEGADEATH, SLAYER is a band I’m quite in to especially the two albums “Undisputed Attitude” and “Diablos in Musica”. Undisputed was high energy punk infused mayhem. Love it!
Unfortunately when I went and saw them a decade or so ago they didn’t impress me at all. They were the headline act but I was more excited about the back up bands. The singer annoyed me a bit haha.
The name SLAYER is very typical and very 80s but awesome at the same time. So simple but brutal and to the point. How could I resist making a model inspired by this name?
The model needed to look like a Slayer. Someone loping about with some sort of massive bladed weapon slaying things haha.
Like with yesterdays post only the first pic has been edited.
I was going to go with a scythe but I thought that might be a bit too typical.
The hands screwed up a bit but I’m quite happy with the end result.
My favourite part to the model is the helmet with those exaggerated horns.
Although I was tempted to cover him from head to toe in blood I restrained myself and I think it works better that way. Maybe he’s just started his day of slaying and has only lopped off a few heads so far.
I really like the shot below.
I went with a yellow sandy/dusty base to add contrast to the model. It’s not usually a colour I use so I wanted to try something new.
I like the scratches on the helmet and I also tried my best with the skin tone and muscle definition.
I think the SLAYER is pretty Bad Arse. He actually looks like he’s going to stick the axe head up where the sun don’t shine haha.
I hope you like my second offering in this series 😉
See you tomorrow
