Mutalith Vortex Beast

I have my head firmly in the Extremis Chamber at the moment, but managed to do a little ‘side’ project – the Mutalith Vortex Beast!


This chap isn’t needed for the campaign (yet) but he popped up cheap on eBay so I snagged him, figuring he was bound to appear sooner or later. I was just going to leave him to one side and ‘get round to it at some point’ but the model was already built and undercoated, so I grabbed the Warriors of Chaos Painting Guide to see how difficult it would be – and it looked really quick and easy (there are only three main areas to paint – skin, tentacles and vortex-thingy).


So, I started painting.

This model pretty much follows the painting guide, and is super-fast to do. The only place I really deviated was with the goop dripping from the tentacles, for which I used Nurgle’s Rot.


I then put ‘Ard Coat on the tentacles to make them more gribbly – seems to work well!

Anyway, back to the Dracothian Guard (about halfway done on the first Echelon), though I also have a Farseer and Bloodthirster currently on the trot as more ‘side’ projects…

    Hey, man. I know this is super old. However, could you tell me how you painted this? Genuinely super interested. Looks like drybrushed, but I’d love your colors if you can remember.

      Ack, that is going back quite a way and, because it was a one-off, I didn’t make a note of the colours (though I remember using Ard Coat for the tentacles so they looked slimy!).

      I seem to recall that I used the painting guide in the Painting Chaos Warriors ebook that GW does – I think they still have it on their site and it is decently priced.

    If interested in selling, lmk. Id like to put it to use in 40k.
