Jamie’s Kharn the Betrayer

I remember when Kharn the Betrayer first appeared as a miniature. Back in the 90?s it took a lot to grab the attention of this spotty teenager… I vividly remember wandering into my local Games Workshop and being confronted by Kharn! Well, not literally, it was the store manager sitting painting this 28mm high ingot of eternal rage. I was hooked.

I bought him immediately and ran home to paint him, foregoing public transport in favour of Khorne?s chosen champion. I lavished all my time and attention on him to create something I was truly proud of.

Fast forward a few years, and a house move, and my Kharn miniature is missing. The scar this left ? I?m sure you?ve all suffered the pain of losing a beloved miniature ?  has stopped me from really wanting another Kharn. Well, until now, because…

…KHARN HAS RETURNED!!!!

Okay, I?m a bit excited about this model and there was no way anyone else was getting their unworthy hands on him. So, how did I go about painting him? Well, my original Kharn the Betrayer had bone armour trim and bright red armour. I wanted to make sure I recreated that as best as I could. To do so I used the following steps.

Armour Trim:

1) Sprayed Corax White

2) Painted Pallid Wych Flesh

3) Shded Agrax Earthshade

4) Drybrush Pallid Wych Flesh

Armour Plates:

1) Paint Mephiston Red

2) Highlight Evil Sunz Scarlet

3) Highlight Wild Rider Red

4) Highlight Lugganath Orange

5) Glaze Bloodletter

Weapons:

1) Paint Leadbelcher

2) Shade Nuln Oil

3) Drybrush Ironbreaker

I then picked out the small areas of skin and leather in my preferred browns and skin tones.

This was a new technique that I have never used before and I am really happy with the results. I think I will be trying it out some more on a few of the Betrayer?s blood-soaked brethren.
