Warsmith's Words: Lord Discordant

 Welcome back to the Vault! My hobby and gaming has been on a mini hiatus whilst I've been enjoying the warm weather over the last couple of weeks, but a combination of holiday and a cooler temperatures has meant an opportunity to get painting!

Sensible Varchilde has been preparing and priming some infantry units, but the "ooh paint something shiny" factor kicked in, and I've indulged in the Lord Discordant for the Iron Warriors.

What an absolute beast of a model! The Lord Discordant on Helstalker is one of the most 40K models I've ever painted; an evil hooded knight atop a mechanical demonic scorpion. There is something very reminiscent of the old Heavy Metal magazine covers about this model. I love everything about it.

The Disco Lord was reasonably quick to paint up as well; two decent length sessions including basing. The model was painted in sub-assemblies to help with access (rider, beastie, base).

The Disco Lord has a suitably impressive set of rules to match the model; it can be customised to be super-tanky or super-killy. Can't wait to get him onto the table top!
