Given my love of all things Chaos it’s actually a little bit surprising that it’s taken me this long to get started on a band of unruly gangers to bring the worship of the Ruinous Powers to the depths of the Necromundan Underhive. Never mind eh brothers and sisters, now is the time to throw off the shackles imposed upon us by the great houses, etc, distant, uncaring Emperor, etc etc, reject the rule of Terra and so on and so forth.
Now some of you may be thinking “steady on, how many gangs is he starting?” but the nice thing about chaos, for me at least, is that I already have most of the models ready to go. Having poured over the chaos gang rules in White Dwarf I’ve pulled together this disreputable mob which makes up most, if not quite all, of the gangers I’ll need.
There’s still a couple of gaps to fill but those places will be taken by models I’ve been meaning to get around to painting anyway so this should serve to encourage me. Of course I can’t seem to let any opportunity to make new models pass me by, especially when those models are beastmen, so I ended up assembling this pair as well. The one on the left will be squeezing his way into the gang itself, whilst the one on the right will be joining the Brayhorn Boys (an all beastmen gang mentioned in White Dwarf that I haven’t been able to resist planning).
When it came to choosing a leader for the gang I was already spoilt for options, and indeed any one of these five could have done the business.
However a new gang needs a new boss, and really it wouldn’t have been right not to come up with someone unique to lead the helots into the clutches of the Dark Gods. Enter Skaverghast the Pit Dweller, hated demagogue and enemy of the Imperium.
This leaves me with just two more models to build for the gang, a witch and a spawn, both of which should hopefully emerge soonish.
