Here is one of my latest additions to the Children of the Crimson Tide…a Chaos Chariot.So far, this is the largest piece in my WoC army as I have purposefully not gone out and bought any Hellcannons or monsters yet. As such, I wanted to make a good job of it.Painting the model was pretty fun, and I split it up into the horses, base, chariot and riders; painted them all separately and then assembled. This was much easier than assembling and then painting as I would have never gotten into some of gaps.
It was actually looking like one of the better models that I had painted….until I gave it a coat of Citadel Purity Seal...which frosted badly and ruined the model. Rather than take it apart, strip and repaint – I did the best I could to fix the problem. Apparently the frosting is caused by micro-pitting in the Purity Seal coat, so that light is not reflected and it leaves a horrible cloudy-matte finish. I managed to get it looking half decent by giving the model a coat of watered down Citadel Gloss Varnish. It’s not perfect, but it will have to do for now – I guess I could remove the riders which are the worst offenders and convert it into a Chaos Shrine at some point.
