That priest is a beast

I have not painted many Beastmen at all over the years, with the exception of some Blood Bowl minis.  Heck, I have painted many more Gnolls than beastmen. :-)

So, this was a fun piece to try.

I wanted to juxtapose a little hint of muted reds against some greyed down, blueish greens.  That is a little more evident in the back views.

The comparison

Since I have repeatedly mentioned the previous batch of Imperial Fists terminators of the Pre Heresy variety, I thought I would post a few images that never made it to the blog.

Compared to the latest batch, these minis drove me kinda nuts...

Lots of casting issues, but also not the most 'fun' shapes to paint.  The Cataphracti versions had lots of really neat surfaces to work with.  I definitely liked the gear on the back much more.

However, the swords on these guys were nice!
