This one is a metal chaos warrior which has had hand/weapon swap as the original sword bearing hand was no aligned to the far too small blade. The fact that it looks so off makes me suspect it was broken and repaired during the mould making process by an inexpert hand.
I chopped off the offending hand at the wrist and replaced it with one cut from the 5th Edition plastic multi part chaos warriors. They are quite close in form to the old metal chaos warriors even if the poses are a bit rigid, they are actually good pieces for converting the old metal chaos warriors.
I painted this one quicker than any other yet, refining the approach to streamline it so that I get the look I want with the minimum of work.
I am finding that using a very pale blue as the base colour for the thinned contrast paint wash seems to get most of the look I want the quickest. I think I am confident now that I can paint a small batch of them to completion without loosing focus due to burnout.
The team is growing slowly and satisfactorily. They should make for a striking force on the tabletop once I increase the numbers of warriors.
This classic Citadel chaos knight is mounted on an original plastic Citadel white horse with some extra green stuff modification. They are pretty basic designs but make for a good base for some additional embellishment.
I have kept the colours to match with an earlier Chaos Warrior with plans to build a small warband out of them as I go.
Presenting my Slannesh cultists – at least the ones that I have finished anyway.
Cenobites direct the faithful servants of Slannesh
I wanted to do this for a looooong time, so it was great to finally get to them. These are chaos sorcerers with some high tech weapons attached to they can have some fun in the far future.
They are super nice guys and naturally they are now wearing their last victims.
Fallen Guardsmen with Ex-Imperial Preacher – Kill! Maim! Burn!
Before you commit to the life of a cenobite, why not try out the lifestyle in the Cult Militant. See if you have a vocation for sociopathic ultraviolence.
Daemons of Slannesh – Fiend, Daemonette and Greater Daemon
The Classic set of Citadel Slanneshi Daemons are perfect for small skirmish games.
I had to do some conversion work on the Greater Daemon, she is really a composite of a couple of greater daemons rather than a stock model. I sculpted the rearmost leg from Green Stuff.
Rogue Psyker – Pyrokinetic
This rouge psyker invariably accompanies this warband. He is a classic armless metal Bratt model from Confrontation. I have used the Soldiers of the Empire set to add the arms. The force rod is simply a halberd cut strategically and carefully filed to flat ends.
