I finally finished painting my Creature Caster's Maggot Demon. I based him on a round base for Age of Sigmar but he could just as easily be based on a square base.

The only "base" the model actually comes with is the large, flat stone formation you see beneath his feet. All the other stones around it I added on my own. Technically the model can stand up with just the flat rock base but it's not very stable on its own.

This is truly a spectacular model. Creature Caster's sculptors are amazingly talented. The model comes in large pieces that are easy to assemble.

I used Army Painter Bone colored spray primer as the base coat and then just did a series of washes over everything. I then did selective drybrushing over the entire body of the model in lighter tans working up to almost pure whites in some areas. This was followed by picking out select areas like the maggot clusters and painting those in pure white. I also added some Army Painter red wash as well as Citadel Blood for the Blood God effects around the edges of the maggot clusters to suggest that everything on the demon's skin is sore and infected.

I also decided to give the creepy half-moon shaped staff head a look like it was made out of some sort of disturbing, decaying meat. I used the base color of the bone spray and did a purple wash over it, and then finally highlighted it with a medium pink color. I also added blood effects the gum line of each teeth to suggest that the gums were bleeding.

It truly is a grotesque and disturbing model!
