The aim in mind for my traitor guard is to build up a real horde of heretics; a swarm of thugs, chaos fanatics and other degenerate scum. In terms of the vibe I’m looking for think of the Skaven from Warhammer; massed ranks of shabby, poorly armed foot soldiers, accompanied by weird specialists and crazy warmachines.
Obviously the task of actually recruiting all those bodies represents a bit of a logistical headache – the very principle is that there needs to be a lot of them. In order to solve this I’ve had a root around on ebay and managed to pick up a load of Cadians and Catachans on the cheap. These models, unwanted in their previous incarnation, will now be converted into the next wave of the Chaos advance.
Philosophically I think this gives something to the spirit of the models themselves; the character of former Imperial soldiers who have turned to the worship of Chaos being represented by formerly Imperial models.
Anyway, here goes with traitor guard squad number two – Clan Maul. First up we have this chap with a flame-thrower, another survivor of the Special Weapons squad I planned long ago (back when I was basing the collection around the Imperial Guard codex rather than the Lost and the Damned list from Forgeworld).
And here’s the first of his new squadmates, another devilish looking traitor.
Hope you like them, there’s more to come soon and, as usual, if you have any feedback I’d be happy to hear from you in the comment’s box below.
