Blood Pact Voxcaster











Here is the all Important Vox-Caster.

I did not use a grotesque head on him but a gasmask head instead that I have cabled to his vox.

I used thin 24 guauge wire for he helmet antennae.

He also has a powered down Auspex so he can call in artillery strikes.

He could also stand in as an Evil Master of Ordanance

This guy is a mismash of parts from Maxmini,Cadian shock and command sprues and a cable from Dragonforge.

They are soooo much easier than using PITA guitar wire it comes in sizes that work for both characters and vehicles.

I have the style of painting them down the way I feel they were described in the books with red fatigues the color of dried blood.

-Solid Dark Flesh base

-Wash of Devilin Mud

-Two washes of Baal Red let each wash dry fully before applying next

-Highlight high folds with 1/1 VMC black red/carmine red

-Wash of baal red to help blend in the highlights

He looks really good. Great pose and nice additions. I just worked with the cabling from Dragonforge for the first time last night and it's a treat.

For my Blood Pact vox operator (http://pickadamnarmy.blogspot.com/2009/03/8-pacters-painted.html) I used a really thin roll of greenstuff as the cable between the vox and his handset.

Oh, I added you to my list of blood pact blogs.
