I've finished painting my first regiment of Marauder Horsemen of Slaanesh; plan to do the second one sometime after christmas, painted very much the same. Right now, I'm not too keen on doing more white horses, hehe. A break is due!Compared to my other Slaaneshi units, this one hasn't been converted very much. The musican did recieve a swordarm from the plastic Marauders on foot, and I "shaved" off the beards of two of the Horseman-heads before gluing them on... But that was about it, I think.
Speaking of the musican's sword, in a way of keeping the unit in theme with what I did with my Warhounds' eyes, I tried to replicate the glow-effect to the runes of the sword, which I'm quite happy with.Earlier I asked for advice regarding where to put the Mark of Slaanesh on them, and while I liked the suggestion of branding the horses with it, I didn't feel confident in my own abilities to paint it. Idle Scholar on Warseer gave me another suggestion, namely painting it onto the shulderpads of the riders, and after giving it a try on the musican, I was so happy with it, that I gave it to all five.I've been debating whether or not my bases are good enough: my initial plan was to create some sort of a stony wasteland, barren of life, just stones and dust, very similar to a desert, but in a colder enviorment and without the richly and warm-coloured sand of a typical desert. But now that I've completed three units with these bases, I was thinking maybe it gets a bit monotonous and boring? I've added some skulls here and there, but maybe I should get some of that burned static grass from GW, or something? To keep the lifeless wasteland-feel going..? Or are they good as it is? Any thoughts?
Also, any critisism or other suggestions regarding my Horsemen are very much welcome!
