This 28mm metal model of Slisssk The Adder is produced by “Oathsworn Miniatures", and was part of the company's recent "Rogues And Vagabonds" Kickstarter. Disappointingly, the figure isn't currently available to buy on their website, but I was lucky enough to pick him up, labelled as an Adder Warrior, at "Salute" 2018.
Due to the deadly serpent wearing heavy armour the figure was inititally primed "Citadel" Chaos Black and subsequently coated with two layers of Ironbreaker. He was then washed with Nuln Oil, before being dry-brushed with (more) Ironbreaker.

The venomous snake's flesh was carefully painted using "Vallejo" Heavy Brown and the numerous leather straps tying his protective plate sheets to his slithering body were 'picked out' with "Heavy Sienna". Both of these areas were then washed with "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade.
I did strongly consider applying some sort of typical dark-coloured reptilian pattern over the carnivore's skin, but as so little was showing I decided against such a move. As a last step however, I dabbed some "Vallejo" Heavy Ochre over the poisonous Adder's glaring eyes, and in order to hopefully make them really stand out I didn't subsequently shade them as I ordinarily do.
|Karsus The Chained WIPs - The Khorne warrior has had his infamous hand-weapon finished|
With the first of my nefarious Northymbran wrongdoers done, I've already set about applying some pigments to my warband's second mischievous malefactor, a Shrew Warrior. This wonderfully characterful sculpt has really caught my imagination, and I'm already considering utilising a tiny garrison of these diminutive fighters as the protectors of the Squire of Shrewsbury...
Despite having such fun with this range of anthropomorphic animals, I am somehow still managing to also maintain my focus upon the remaining plastic miniatures I need to complete so as to field "Garrek's Reavers" for "Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire". Having finished all the fiddly belt buckles, straps and brass armour on Karsus The Chained, I am hoping to have the "Game Workshop" Khorne worshipper completed before too much longer.
