Chaos reinforcement ... as promised

Hello everyone, it is sunday night. After a week-end spent under some sad circumstances, i still took time to take care of my stuffs.
Life must go on.

So for tonight, I took lots of time to make pictures of the chaos knights and warriors. I tried different angles and mostly I tried different kinds of light. I finally succeeded in making some pictures which I found were good enough.

I think I can still make progress but time will help me in solving this... I hope... Right Time? You will help right???... Right?

I'll begin with the chaos warriors:

We are red!
Watch out! Shoot from above!

As you can see these guys like black and red. They can go higher than these mounts of pain ... mmh ok, no more Jeanne Mas reference here ...
This is a 24 men strong unit. All with hand weapon and shield. They're really pointwise expensive but I like using them (especially because they're painted).

The command group, with as a champion ... Again! Some guy in a bone armour!! Why all the champions in this army got bony armour?? That's so discriminating toward the others! ... Anyway, I really like this champion. He s got a beastman friend with the same head. This guy is the second miniature I got of him. The first was sold like 10 years ago when I thought I was leaving the hobby ... I though WRONG!
The banner is a free hand of mine. It is clearly not a Da Vinci painting. It is pretty fun pic. Kind of cartoony. I might replace the bearer by a more classic miniature sometimes in the future. I'll see.
I like the helmet of the musician, very like the alchemist in the movie named Vidocq.

I ll take your soul!

Some of the crew. I think the painting on the 2nd shield from the right is kind of good. Simple but effective. You can spot a thug and a chaos mutant from Bloodbowl. The thug got such a big armour I was like, he can't go with the other thugs, he d look silly. The mutant adds variety and different colours to the crew.

More guys. An other chaos thug! Holding the head of a fallen enemy. Once again he got too much armour so he joined the warriors. I painted his head in white, I like the effect. The 2nd guy from the left, he s a very cool miniature. He s really old and the shield is attached to miniature, he s a one block guy.

I really like the Jes Godwin champions but I didn't paint a lot of them. I enjoyed the Khorne champion on the right. He s such a nice miniature that the painting comes along without efforts. The skull headed guy on the left is a marauder warrior. Finally the 2nd from the left is really fun. He s like a big block with a small helmet. I forgot where did I find his shield ... but it suits him.

Chaos thugs spotted on the right and 2nd from the left. They're here for the same reasons than the others. I painted the skin of the guy on the right in dark blue. I think he adds a bit of variety in colour without really making big contrasts.

Blood bowl mutant on the left! I gave him a green armour, just to try. I kind of like the shield of the marauder, 2nd from the right.
Because he s spoiled, this guy got his own picture (mostly because we can't really see him in the previous picture).

And now, the famous... Chaos Knights!!!
To be honest, I don't really like riders. You got to paint the mount and then the rider, this is boring. But when you tried and that you put the rider on his mount and glued them together, I got to admit that there is some kind of joy to see the final result.

Chaos knights are a must have in every chaos army. They're super deadly. Few guys can stop them and they got some silly heavy chaos armour and stuffs ... So here are mine.


Here they are! Only six of them, but that's enough :) I like the result of all them together. They didn't really fit next to each other because of their shields and stuffs blocking the way for being side by side.

Kaleb Dark got a new horse. When I received this guy in my mail box I was like "oh boy Kaleb Dark man he s going to lead my army!" And then I saw his horse. I was like "wtf" that's a tiny horse, like really tiny one. So I gave him an other horse and he became one of my riders. Concerning the horse he might be a donkey in a evil/chaotic warband for Mordheim or Frostgrave ... I don't know.
The other guy is a conversion from an old chaos warrior. You can see the foot version in my warriors regiment. The conversion could have been better, especially the axe. But hey, I think he s all right.

The chaos champion from the 90's riders. He didn't need works for conversion and stuffs. The other one he s a heartbreaker warrior, it's a conversion. I like his slenderman kind of face. So I painted him in white, a bit like the chaos guy holding the severed head above.

Archaon!!! Used as a mere champion. :) He looks good. The banner bearer got a banner from a scibor regiment. I painted a sword with some chaos stars and sigils.

As an extra for this post, I gave you one of my last paint, the Chimera!
Sanctus! Dominus!

So it s not a oldhammer miniature at all. It's a plastic d&d miniature. I had him when I tried this game years ago. I was like this a nice mini. And I never sold it because I thought it was cool.
I gave him a base and painted it. I like the result. It 's not very big as you can see. The base is a 50*100mm base.

An other shot!

That's it for tonight. I hope you all enjoyed the show and that you find my stuffs cool. Next time I should show you a chaos hero, some chaos ogres and ... more thugs!
