As some of you know I had have a had break from blogger and painting due to the birth of my second son (18 years apart) so the painting and modelling room had to be swapped out for a nursery. Things are slowly getting back to normal here so I managed to set-up my painting desk in the guest room over the Easter holidays and knock out a few miniatures, I still have a thirst on for Realm of Chaos Thugs and aim to paint every single one ever released, here are some of my latest efforts.
The first Chaos Thug I painted is 'Zarygor Bloodrage', this well fearsome looking Chaos Thug was originally from the F5 - Marauders range designed by the Perry twins before being incorporated into the Chaos Thug ranges. Being more armoured than your average Chaos Thug Zarygor would make a nice command miniature or a leader for you warband.
Next miniature I painted is 'Number 14' from the Chaos Thug range featured in White Dwarf 101, unfortunately citadel stopped naming rank and file troops so he is simply '14', the sculpt is a bit bigger than your usual Chaos Thug but he adds variety to a unit.
I found out an Arcane Armorials shield transfer to make him truly Oldhammer.

He is 'Nud Spinespittle' a C35 Chaos Warrior from the Third Citadel Compendium, a lot smaller than the Realm of Chaos era warriors and champions so I thought he would fit into my Chaos Thug regiment just nice, this is my plan for most of the earlier smaller Chaos Warriors.

Then I got a bit bored and knocked out a couple of C11 Halflings, why? no idea, I might do some more as I have the whole range in an old dusty box . I had to make some new swords for them and pin them on as the original swords were dark grey bits of lead wire thin. More Halflings can be seen here on the Collecting Citadel Miniatures Wiki.
|Shield design was inspired by a baby grow I was dressing the little one in, the theme was counting sheep which is quite apt for a Halfling shield I think :D|
Oh! I have just found a few photos I took at last years Oldhammer event, if you are pictured in any of these photos and did not get a mention let me know and I will put your name up as it was last August and a few of your names escape me now.
