Warband Progress Part 9

Hello Friends of the blog, 
I would like to apologise for the lack posts on my blog lately, with it being holiday season I went away for my annual board gaming weekend with my mates to Wales and finally the weather turned nice so I had to catch up on making the garden look nice.

I have managed to fit in some painting and here are the latest fruits of my labour for my steadily growing pool of chaos miniatures to pick from for the OldHammer Event.

First we have another Champion of Khorne so I now have two to choose from.

He can be seen here, now the catalogue entry lists that he armed with a sword and attributed with horns but I can see a lot more going on here and I am sure he is gifted with the Face of Khorne, horns, a mane of hair, a mark of Khorne on his forehead and of course chaos armour, if you think otherwise I would love to here from you.

I would also like to thank Orlygg for making this miniature possible as he traded it to me.

Again more Chaos Thugs, I well and truly have the bug for these guys and aim to paint one of each miniature in the range.

The range can be seen here 0210021102120213WD82CH6WD92.


Mask
anyone know his name?
I painted Grimface below up about 15 years ago and had to spice him up a little, I was mooching around for more chaos miniatures when I came across a box of unfinished projects and he was one of them, I also found the beastman with skull mask and flail which is lucky as I keep on losing ebay auctions for him.
Grimface the Touchy
Then I got a bit bored and thought I would have a break from Khorne and all his bloodletting for an erotic encounter (ooer!), no this did not involve the missus, I had a mooch around my miniatures and found a few Slaaneshi miniatures and decided to paint a couple of Slaaneshi Chaos Beastmen.  I have to admit it made a nice change although I do have plenty of half finished Rogue Trader miniatures to be getting on with.

These miniatures can be seen here in the 1991 'red' catalogue.




I realised that I may have been getting a bit carried away as this pool of chaos miniatures seems to be developing into a bit of a chaos army as you can see below the ranks of Beastmen and Thugs arrayed that I have painted since the middle of March.


I almost forgot, this week I have been listening to Gaunt's Ghosts in Salvations Reach Audio book, which I really enjoyed, it had just the right balance between character development, intrigue and battles, read with his Scottish twang by James MacPherson which I think makes the characters far more believable. I suggest you give it a go.


Thanks for visiting

  4. Up until now we've only really seen you miniatures one at a time, so I was always assuming that you had a small warband. But it seems that they all add up, because your total warband is a lot larger than I expected! It's looking really great, I bet it will get a lot of attention on Oldhammer Day.

    1. Hey dude, thanks I know it all getting a bit out of hand I started my third champion of Khorne today, those miniatures are for the pool I will be choosing from don't worry I do not expect to use them all, I will have to divert my attention to an RT chaos renegade/Marine squad soon for coops game at the event.

  6. I like the faces on the Champion and the final, pale beastman. They look particularly nice :)

    I didnt know that the Oldhammer event featured 40K RoC stuff, which is more my sort of thing than the fantasy stuff generally. Do you have a link for the event by any chance?

  7. I also recommend Army Painter Dark Tone (the ink, not the dip so much). The Strong Tone is great too, I use it all the time as a Devlan Mud substitute. In fact I used Devlan Mud again recently and I think that I prefer Army Painter Strong Tone now.

    The Oldhammer event sounds fantastic. I seriously considered going to the Tales From the Maelstrom event held last December for similar reasons, but getting there from Ireland makes it just a little bit harder to budget for. Foundry is a great place though and Marcus is a good guy and getting stuck in to some RT games at a not-tournament there with some like minded folk of a similar vintage sounds like seriously good fun.

    As for the cats, just drop me a line at the address on the Contact page on my blog when you get a chance and I will put them in the post. Its no hassle, I have them to spare so you wont owe me anything. I even have them packed already :)

  9. They all look amazing, especially the red champion. The way you paint the faces a light tone is extra creepy.
