The Power of the Avatar

Once again, I'm back working on my retro Warhammer metal miniatures, though I've taken my sweet as time on this one, and I know its very different. Its probably been about a year in the painting, as I started it with just the 2 colours. Then I rather lost my way, when digging through a box of bits to find some other models, I found him. So the whole thing took off again last week, not a long time painting in the grand scheme of things, but I was also painting a mass of Guardians and some Hawk (almost done). In truth he has a few things that I'm not happy with, but I'm at that point I need to stop before it becomes a obsession. So this is my interpretation of the Avatar of Khaine of the Craftworld Alaiborn (origins of the Alai Mercenary Corps (in my head)).

I know, look at those glorious pink legs and green socks!
The red in between all the colours represents that his body is made of molten metal. But I'm planning on it being the colour of my Fire Dragons
The blue is the colour of the Craftworld Guardians.
Pink in the colour of the Dire Avenger Troops.
Then finally the green is from the Striking Scorpions.
The green and the blue is also the colour of my Alai Mercenary Corps, so will tie in with them nicely too.
Just the Howling Banshees that I'm yet to decide on.

Plus the starting of many troops that form that Craftworlds Guardian defence.
