Chaos Lord of Slaanesh

I just got some time to finish up this miniature last night. I planning on running this guy in the tournament at the weekend:

Chaos Lord, Mark of Slaanesh, Daemon Weapon, Wings, Melta Bombs

I had originally planned to use him as a Sorcerer but I decided against that plan. I've gone with daemon weapon as it gives +D6 attacks (provided you don't roll a one), and the Slaanesh version inflicts Instant Death. This combined with the wings and melta bombs mean I'm going to be using him to take down tough, multi-wound models (Nobz, Tyranid Warriors, though no monstrous creatures are allowed in the tournie), plus use his melta bombs to destroy any light armour that I come across.

In terms of painting, I really struggled with this. I find the pastel pinks and blues difficult to paint. The snake tail blending is a little rough, and the shoulders are a bit too blue really. I'm quite pleased with the wings, they look OK.

The wings are my favourite bit as well. I like the blending done on them and the depth of the painting. Perhaps one suggestion would be to paint the snake tail the same colour as the wings to give consistency? I completely empathize about pastel colours...

Yeah, I really struggled with colour selection on this model and it ended up in a bit of a mish mash.
