Keeper of Secrets Chaladran PIP

Ok so Ricalope has prompted me to do a paint in process post about Chaladran, I quite often don't post until the model is fully painted but this one is taking me a while and I guess its better to post more often. (people like sneak peaks). So here it is the first 4 stages of paint, I figure its going to take 7 stages to finish her. I decided that this time I'm going to post the steps of paint used as well, for future reference and in case any one wanted to know. sorry some of the pics didn't turn out so well.

Stage 5 will be metallics, stage 6 gems and touch ups, stage 7 grass, rim job and name. I have a hard time putting her down as every time I do she roars in my head. The whole paint job on this model had gone very smoothly so far. I had no idea how it was going to look and i only sorta know now because its close to being finished. Each step of the way I put paint on the brush and she tells me where to put it. Not so sure its a good thing that a greater daemon is whispering so sweetly in my head, but hey I dammed my self from the beginning point of deciding to collect this army. And now just barley silenced by the greater daemon on the paint table in line before her, I have a newly primed Lust grinder I commissioned Ricalope to build for me waiting to be painted next. I'm pretty sure the only reason she isn't screaming in my head yet is because Chaladran is silencing her till im finished.


  1. The Keeper is looking great... and the other stuff too!

  2. thanks she is coming along nicely although slowly for me. I'm on stage six now so hopefully will be posting the rest soon. and then I can move on to Lilith.
