Good Evening, mortals.
I have been busy beavering away at my painting table/summoning circle, creating more minions of the Dark Gods. Please enjoy these photos.
Despite this post being called Warriors of Chaos the first 2 photos are clearly of dwarfs. This is something I’ve been doing while at work. I’ve decided that I’ll have 2 armies on the go at the moment. Dwarfs for work, and Chaos at home! I’ve really been enjoying these so far and I can knock them out quite quickly which is a great bonus. Expect to see this army growing soon!
The next photo is the Chaos Warriors I have shown you before. As you can see they have grown somewhat and are sporting Halberds that I ordered from Games Workshop. The Chaos Lord, seen in greater detail in the next photo, has to be placed at the very end of the unit as his massive cloak makes it nearly impossible to rank him up in a unit with the other warriors. If you were wondering, he is from a company called Avatars of War, who make really gorgeous alternative models for some Games Workshop heroes, definitely worth checking out.
After that my first 20 marauders are complete! Albeit with a Chaos Ogre unit filler. Unit fillers are a great concept. Many people choose to make unit fillers in Warhammer Fantasy because it cuts down the amount of models you have to actually produce and can add some flavour or something extra interesting looking to a big block of troops. In my opinion they suit some armies, say Chaos, Orcs & Goblins and Undead more than other races that are a bit more orderly in their approach.
I’ve had a great time making these. In my force of 120 marauders, I will have to paint 36 less marauders than maybe I would’ve normally, and it gives me a chance to go crazy with some conversions. You can see I’m in the process of making some more chaos ogres, and have also started on some chaos spawn. Adding marauder heads onto the chaos spawn bodies ties them in with their unit a bit better, but also makes me chuckle and reminds me a bit of Thrud the Barbarian. If you’ve never heard of him go Google him right now. These spawn kits are very cool and have a huge amount of options to make horrible, tentacled monstrosities!
Finally we have a marauder horseman. I painted him the other day for some different to do and see how the paint scheme works. I’m happy with the result and have 19 more of them to do!
Well, that’s all the time I have for now. Hope you enjoyed the post and see you again soon!
