Chaos Troll Template!

Finally finished this sucker! It took me several attempts to get my colors down and uniform with the army concept I’m going for. My original paint attempt had the trolls skin in bright violet.

It was horrible.

I moved the violet to the scales, adopted the same grey skin I did on the warhounds, and added the bone for contrast. It was damn fun to paint.

1 down, 10 to go.

~Throgg excluded~

Tyranid Tervigon

Finally got around to uploading these images. I decided to go with a modified variant of the design from Hydra from Warpshadow.com. I could not get the egg sack method he used so I went with my own.

To be honest this is one of the best models I have painted. I don’t like to paint large minis on the most part but this one came together so well I had to.

Sorceress of Slaanesh

I painted this mini a LONG while ago. It’s a landmark model for me as it’s the first time I successfully painted NMM (non-metallic metal) gold. That technique has been my Everest for the longest time and through that success I was able to add some serious detail I’ve been missing from my work for a long time.

After a quick re-basing she was added to the new Warriors of Chaos army I’m painting as I’ve never used her and I really don’t remember how I did this paint scheme. Replicating it will be torture so I’ll use her as a Sorceress.

Hail the Darkling Prince!

Chaos Warhounds

Warhounds done!

I followed the hair color from the warhorse template model for the fur here. It came out very well.

I sculpted fur with greenstuff over the holes where the horns went because they were lame.

Snakes? Coming out of the side of their heads? That’s gh3y man…

I need to paint that tounge...
One unit down!

Paint Theme Template!

Ok. I finally settled down on the template for this Slaanesh Warhost.

I started this theme for a Tzeentch army when the Chaos army book was released but I never got around to finalizing it. I already have a Demonic Tzeentch army so I decided change gods.

It took me a long while to settle down on the metal plate section for this scheme. I first wanted to do a lacquered white with a lavender hint to it but replicating that army wide was a path to damnation and madness. I went with the default pastel pink.

Rider to come…

Throgg & Lads

Got all my trolls bought and built. I decided to go with the new river trolls, as they are sexy as hell.

I wracked my brains over what to use for Throgg as GW is fond of releasing rules for models that don’t exist. After much deliberation over at GW Springfield, I settled on using the new Doombull from the recent Beastmen line.

Now I’m no Dave Taylor, but I can make this guy fit in. He’s suitably huge, armored, and wielding an axe as large as he is. A head swap, some scale sculpting, a few horns and he’ll do fine.

Needs more work!

New Army Time!

The release of Warhammer Fantasy 8th Edition is coming up fast! I didn’t want to get excited but it happened anyway.
I decided to give my Demons of Chaos and Vampire Counts armies a rest for the moment and start a paint project that’s been rolling around in my head for years. A Slaanesh themed Warriors of Chaos army!

Here’s the root of what I’m thinking about fielding:

Heroes
Throgg
Exalted Hero
Mark of Slaanesh, Battle Standard Bearer, Collar of Khorne, Shield

Core
Marauder Horsemen x10
Mark of Slaanesh, flails, javelins, light armor, standard & musician
Marauder Horsemen x10
Mark of Slaanesh, flails, javelins, light armor, standard & musician
Chaos Hounds x5
Chaos Hounds x5
Chaos Trolls x5 (Throgg’s unit)
Chaos Trolls x6

Specials
Chaos Chariot x2
Dragon Ogres x4
Extra hand weapons

I have about 650 leftover points but I’m not sure what I want to play with. I’ll figure it out I guess.

Mycetic Spore

As of late, GW has had a trend of making rules for models they didn’t intend on releasing for a while. Few armies suffer from this problem more then the Tyranid army book that was released in January.

Since GW had no real plans on providing us with a pod in which we could fall from the heavens and land closer to our food sources, I decided to make my own. I mean who wants to walk that far to eat?

I sculpted it from a wooden goose egg I found at Michaels and some ProCreate epoxy I had kicking around for years. The results were… surprising. I had never sculpted anything in my life and this came out good enough for me to make a mold of it and cast it in resin. The base is made from a Pegasus Hobbies crater.
