Work has been a bit on the busy side over the last few weeks so my progress on the cult of Tzeentch has slowed down but fear not gentle reader – the Changer of Ways still holds my heart in his constantly mutating palm!
The next thing I wanted to add to the warband was a Kairic Acolyte with vulcharc (that’s the weird looking bird familiar that accompanies the human cultists of Tzeentch). I already have a vulcharc that I painted up to serve as a Sheen Bird for my Cawdor gang in Necromunda so now it can do double duty and return to the role its creators originally intended for it amongst the Kairics.
Now I just needed a Kairic Acolyte to act as its owner/servant (I’ve no idea how this relationship works but I doubt being bound into the service of Tzeentch ever turns out well). This chap, who’s well on his way to mutating into some kind of chaos spawn – or perhaps if he’s lucky ascending into a Pink Horror – fit the bill nicely. He’s been heavily converted with a mixture of Pink Horror parts (mostly the head and arms) to create a fitting servant of the god of change and mutation.
Normally the vulcharc would be on the same base as its owner but I quite like having it based separately. The rules for Warcry state (and who ever imagined they’d see a discussion of game rules here eh!):
“Pick an enemy fighter within 20 inches of this fighter. Until the end of the battle round that fighter cannot make disengage actions”.
With the vulcharc on a base of its own I can pop it next to whichever poor so-and-so it’s giving a vicious pecking, which to my eye looks a lot more cinematic and engaging that using a token.
Alongside these mortal slaves I’ve also conjured up another pink horror, converted in much the same way as the previous two.
For now that’s all the pink horrors for the warband painted, although I may come back and make a few more at a later date.
And speaking of horrors I also painted up a couple more blue horrors.
As far as I’m aware that’s all the blue horrors I own painted now, although they’re sufficiently small (and I’m sufficiently disorganised!) that there might well be one or two more lurking in a box somewhere. Either way they’re certainly due a group shot!
Speaking of group shots I realised the other day that I never posted a group photo of the rainbow of brimstone horrors either, so – no time like the present and all that. Behold the skittles of doom!
I still have various models to be added to this warband but I’m going to be taking a little break from it so I can concentrate on all things related to the Fembruary challenge over the coming month. I promise I won’t leave the Changer of Ways hanging though, and will get back to his labyrinthine plots in March. In the meantime here’s the warband so far.
Of course it goes without saying that my Warcry addiction is as strong as ever so even though I’m not going to be working on this lot for the next few weeks I’ll still be putting together a warband for the game.
