Well as Rex and Tall have already moved I'd better get this thing started.

So why Warriors of Chaos? Well a few reasons really but mostly due to the awesome models which look like they should be a lot of fun to paint (I shyed away from this army when I started playing with toy soldiers as I didn't think I could do them justice, but I'm a little more confident in my painting now). The other reason is the comparativly small model count which means I might have a chance of meeting the monthly targets (I love Skaven but having to paint 80 minis in a month would just be taking the piss).

Back when I was procrastinating over which Legion to make my CSM army I gave some very serious consideration to painting them as Emperor's Children because I loved the whole theme of the army and Slaanesh in general. I eventually went undivided so I could still have bezerkers and plauge marines despite the coolness of having an army that looked like the Hart Foundation. Well this seems like as good an excuse as any to revive the theme, that and having my men immune to terror/fear/panic means I can happily stomp all over those daemon/VC powerlists you see flying around :grin:.

I'm currently reading through the army book and I have 2 Slanneshi heroes on order (on foot and on the boobysnake). Regular warriors are going to have black armour with pink trim while the characters shall be a little more outlandish as they are devoted to excess. Now I juat need to decide on whether to get these MaxMini heads (http://www.maxmini.eu/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=12&products_id=53) heads or not. On the plus side they'll make my men match my lord, on the downside they'll also match Rex's army lol.

Now a question for you guys, what's best for warriors - handweapon+shield/great weapons or halberds? And do these come in the box or do you have to buy the bitz packs?

Updates when I have a list done.

I usually go for Hand Weapon and Shields, but it you get the points give them Halberds as well.
On the charge use the Halberds, on the defensive use the HW/Shield combo. Simples.....

Hold on. :shocked:
Why am I helping you craft an army that I'm going to have to face????? :exasperated:

You and your tricksy ways Slaanesh........:p

Well I got the MaxMini heads and they are very good looking I think I'll use them on my chosen and I've got some greek hoplite heads to order for the rest of the warriors.

On MaxMini they're an excellent company and it took a surprisingly short time to deliver from Poland

Well I could always model them with halberds and count them as hand weapons lol.

@ Mart - I still want an Empire army but I couldn't face doing 40-60 models a month to meet the target lol. 12 warriors and 10 dogs I might manage ;)

Fair point but I'll tip my hat to the lad for his knowledge of wrestlers from before he was born.

Got to love that model, the pose alone was enough reason for me to buy it when it first came out. Will you also be adding that typical Slaaneshi shield, or something more mainstream chaotic?

Aeth
22-02-2010, 10:08 PM
I'm going with the shield he came with, just not sure if thats supposed to be cloth or the flayed skin of a victim stretched across it. I've also made the mistake of not painting the gauntlet attached to the shield when I was doing the armour, hope I can get the mix right lol.

The metallics mixed in make the legs look like they have spandex on in real life lol.

Just time for a quick update, sorry about the low-res pick but I've uploaded it straight from my phone as there isn't much to see yet. Anyway these are my 2 target core units for the month, I was hoping to have these primed today but by the time I'd finished gritting the bases i'd run out of daylight.

http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb113/Windymiller1904/ee03926b.jpg

I have some bits on order for converting a unit of warriors for next months target but I'm undecided on what to do with the hero choice. I need to get a wizard on foot but I'm not sure any of the GW really fit in, I could convert 1 from the Empire box but if anyone has ideas please chuck them my way.

Meh over a week gone into this months time and I still haven't done anything. Some chosen heads and a new sorceror on horse model I ordered from GW on the 8th still haven't turned up yet, at this rate I'll be making a last minute rush again gggrrrrr.

Tall
20-04-2010, 06:36 PM
I'm sure you'll get there in the end dear boy keep the faith!! Who did you order them from?
