Having finished off the Orks I wanted to step into the New Year (especially as its already the middle of January) by showing a few older miniatures that have been finished for a while now – thus getting them out of the way and letting us get stuck into the real meat of the new stuff.
To get us started here’s the remainder of my Chaos Terminator squad (some of which have been shown previously – see here, here and here).
This warped and degenerate fellow is clearly well on his way to becoming a spawn. I blame the unhealthy side-effects of standing too close to that icon of vengeance all the time.
Alas poor Yarrick… Part of the reason it took me so long to get around to posting pictures of this squad is the trouble I had getting semi-decent pictures of this model. I enjoyed playing with the contradiction between his monstrous appearance and contemplative pose. I wonder what he sees in the skull of this fallen guardsman? His lost humanity or his lost weakness?
Next we have this brutish individual, assembled out of a combination of Chaos Terminator, Possessed and Space Wolf Terminator parts.
Finally here’s a group shot of the whole squad together.
Those of you who are particularly observant or are big fans of counting will note that although I’ve claimed to have a full squad this picture shows only nine models. There is a tenth model but currently I’ve removed it from the squad – it’s one of my favourite models in the Beasts of Ruin but also one of the oldest. As such I feel it deserves not only an improved paintjob but a squad of its own to lead. Obviously that leads to a gap in the first squad which needs to be filled so expect to see more Chaos Terminators soon.

Nice, they look properly twisted!

Cheers! I always reckon the bigger and tougher a follower of chaos is the more mutated they can become and survive. So cultists should be pretty much human, or have small mutations, whereas terminators can become really strange and warped. (Note that this is just in my own weird brain and not based on any official lore I know of). Plus, I like making mutants!

Awesome stuff mate! Where did you get the head for the “alas poor Yorick” chap?

The head on his neck or the head in his hand? The former comes from the chaos spawn kit, the latter is a skeleton warriors skull, slightly cut down to size, with a cadian helmet on it.

Haha I meant the spawn one. Cheers bro
