His cloak which gives him a 3++ is a carnifex carapace and he also has a shield made of the same.

In celebration of Leap Year, I'm extending this until February 26th at Midnight. Get ta work!

Assembled the model before painting?? It's not a n00b mistake, it's a training exercise to improve your painting skills

Ah, I just finished sculpting and I was about to start painting >< Can I have a mass of original scupture with a couple of bits thrown on that counts as a demon prince? lol

Oh well, I guess I'll just finish this guy up anyway, I've had the idea for making him floating around my head for a while even if he doesn't count this week :(

Actually, since it isn't a straight up Demon Prince model and only uses elements it counts! Because it isn't the whole GW model and most of it is sculpted, it 'Counts As'.

GET PAINTING!

Alright, I just got this one finished and I'm pretty happy with how it came out. Thanks to Dez for pointing out the treekins to me, that led me to dryads which I'm planning to incorporate bits from in making my new Chaos army.

So anyway, here he is:
