If the blood god’s warriors are to be brought to battle a champion must be found to lead them – one who can seek out the skulls of the worthy before his warriors turn on each other…
The champion of my second squad of Khorne berserkers stands ready to join his savage brethren.
In the last post I showed you some Nurgle Terminators I’ve been working on (still building up the gut of the standard bearer for anyone who’s wondering). Did I ride a wave of Nurgley enthusiasm and get paint on some of the models I’ve already built? Did I hell! No, I made more! Here’s the first of two new additions to my Chosen of Nurgle – a big fat brute with a flame-thrower.
As you can see the basic model is finished but there’s still a bit of work to be done, particularly around the head where I’ll be building up the greenstuff to cover the join between the Space Marine helmet, the Blightking neck and the horn. I also went for the old grey-scale images, partly because it helps cover up the jarring colour combinations from scavenged, part-painted bitz but mostly because it makes me look super arty and cool.
Joining him – and so new he doesn’t even have a base yet – is the squad’s champion.
I’m really pleased with him (no false modesty here!) especially as I’ve been wanting to use that model with the huge mouth in his stomach for ages. It’s just so classically old-school chaos, no mere warrior down on his luck and dabbling with the dark powers but a fully fledged servant of the mad gods, a walking embodiment of their savage insanity.
Anyway, thoughts on either of them? Apart from ‘put a base on the champion or he’ll fall over’. As usual comments, feedback and suggestions are welcome in the box below.
Right, back to traitor guard and, with the addition of these two fearsome looking gentlemen, Clan Claw, the first squad of my rebellious horde, is complete. First off here’s another scary man in a mask.
Of course, no squad of deviant traitors would be complete without a twisted champion to lead them.
And here’s the whole happy family together. I have to admit I’m really loving my traitor guard, they’re great fun to convert and relatively quick and easy to paint so if you’re thinking of taking the plunge and starting your own evil tech-barbarians I’d highly recommend it.
Psyker. Priest. Voice of the Neverborn. Directing the debased horde. Willing sacrifice to enflesh their victory. Engineering the union of gods and men with his own blood and bone.
Quite pleased with this creepy fellow. The bits to make four more are sitting on my table. Just need to stick them together…
Rather excitingly this is also my 100th post. Who knew when it began that this little blog would go so far? Not I anyway!
Just a quick update, as promised, here’s the Bone ‘ead for my renegade Ogren squad. And yes, I know there’s no Bone ‘eads in Imperial Armour 13, I just don’t like leaving my Ogrens without someone in charge!
As you can see, he’s considerably bigger than the others. Never mind eh – at least he looks like the boss!
