There's just a few more hours left in February, so I guess it's high time I posted a few pictures and let you all in on how I got on with my primary objective for this month's Hobby Challenge. I posted about my secondary objective, the Chaos Warhound Titan legs a few days ago.
I figured I'd had the Chosen models from Dark Vengeance lying about without doing anything about them for long enough now, so I pulled them out to figure out what I could use them for. The first one was really easy. With the third eye, cape and of course the mace he's the obvious Dark Apostle.
The two Chosen with Power Axes were obvious choices for new Aspiring Champion models for my Melta squads. The only issue was that I'd rather have them using Power Swords, so I swapped the axes out for a couple of swords from the Chaos Knights set. This also gave me the opportunity to try out the airbrushing power weapons technique you can find all over the net by now.
Finally... If my two Melta-squads were getting new Champions, I didn't feel like leaving the Plasma squad without an upgrade too. One of the Chosen with Boltgun fit the bill.
No doubt, you've noticed that each of the champions above has a buddy. With the Icon of Vengeance not really being worth the points, in my opinion, I needed a regular Legionnaire to replace the icon bearers. Up until now I've been using temps from one of my Havoc squads, but since I was painting up some champions anyway...
Oh, and congratulations to us! This the 400th post on our little corner of the blogosphere..
