What's the Storey Morning Gorey?

So once again a great challenge has been issued out by the garage and the Panda has failed to deliver on time! I think I've bit off more than I can chew with my commission schedule. I feel bad and promise I've got a few ideas to improve my posting rep soon but I won't let the cat out of the bag just yet.

Anyway... On to my member of the Gore Herd!  I was having convulsions upon seeing the great ideas that my fellow GGers have produced. From Journeyman's obvious delight with chance to do new techniques, Grim's stellar gore, Chevy's always solid blends to Meph's initial post filled with his crazy conversion skills I wasn't sure what I would be able to bring to the table.

Well lets see, what do I do well? Then it hits me! I have never made crazy conversions as green stuff generally scares me; I don't have award winning paint jobs; what I do well is get great table top quality paint jobs for playable pieces! I generally field a fully painted force on the table top if possible so this definitely shows who I am.  But how do I make this fit with the Gor? Well, going back to the days when I was entrenched in the GeeDubb fanboi club I remember how disciples of Chaos are susceptible to the mutating effects of their patrons and are never safe from this power. BAM! I decided to paint up my Gor as if he is being changed from the inside out to become a Chaos Spawn! So what does this entail since I'm not going to have mutations on him you ask? Well a good sickly flesh color would be a great focal point that separates him from the brown bovine that comprise the rest of the herd. Add in the fact that he's probably a blood thirsty critter already and having the Chaos gods isn't helping him, so he probably isn't cleaning his opponents blood off his weapons any time soon!  Anyway I hope you all have enjoyed my ramblings!



  1. Great job on this. Love the blood work. I wish I was braver with blood.

  2. Great work here Panda! The blood work is great, and Im digging the gnarly weapon with the blood left splattered all over it!

    Thanks for finishing up and getting this bad boy up. Was worth the wait!

  3. Thanks guys! It means a lot to me, I was really worried about not having a good contribution to this one.
