Finished painting the Pink Horrors

This Summer sure is going fast.  Our FLGS held a samll escalation league over the past 5 weeks and I have been busy trying to paint some demons.  One of the rules to our new army league was that we needed to have our initial two units painted by the end in order to be eligible for prizes.  My record isn't good enough to win as of now but I think  I am the closest to being finished with the painting (some people haven't even started!).  With a little over a week to go, I am sure I will finish on time.

I tried a bunch of different things for these guys since I had never painted anything chaosy before.  That, coupled with the fact that I love my individuality as an Ork player, made it really hard to paint more than two the exact same way.

I have a nice mix of different pinks, purples, reds, and even a blue horror.

I decided to mix up the colors of the flames as well to keep it chaotic.

 I used instant coffee with PVA glue on all of the bases to keep it uniform.  I like the muddy, blood slime look.

 The blue horror is just starting to turn into a pink horror.  I used wet-blending for the first time on his tail.

All in all, I am pretty happy with the way they turned out.  Now I just need to finish my Bloodletters.
Thanks for checking it out.


  1. Nice work on the wet blending! It is a tricky one to learn but it allows you to create so many cool effects. Hope you are doing well :-)

  2. Thanks Marc! It took some trial and error but I think I'm getting the hang of it.

  3. Really great painting job, I love thoses Pink Horrors have different heads, like the two with the Tzeentch Great Daemon head ^^
    Bravo !
    I would have painted my Daemonettes Slaaneshi one of these days, it makes you want to see your work :)
    Keep the good work my friend !

    1. I wish I could take credit, but those heads are just the stick pink horror kit. Testament to GW's great models.

  4. Horrors are looking fantastic!

  5. Good job!! nice looking horrors and the instant coffee with PVA glue for the bases looks really nice also, I like the idea and I will probably copy it =D

    1. Thanks, Jaime. My buddy discovered it on accident but the effect is pretty cool. I added a bit of red paint while theix is still gooey to lighten the color.
