Chaos Lord / Herald of Khorne on Juggernaut of Khorne

2 kommentarer
There's limited use in a pack of dogs if the pack doesn't have a suitable leader. Luckily, the 'perfect' character for the job is right there in the HQ section of the Chaos Daemons codex.

Enter the Herald of Khorne, astride a Juggernaut to be able to keep up with his charges. Alternatively, this guy can just as easilly represent a Chaos Lord on a Daemonic Mount.

While Beasts and Cavalry do interact a little differently with Difficult Terrain, they behave similarly enough that potential issues are easily avoided with a little forethought.

The model above is kitbashed from a number of different kits. The Juggernaut itself, the rider's legs and right arms (See below!) are from the Skullcrushers. The rider's head, torso, backpack and shoulder guards comes from CSMs Possessed. The final bit is the left arm, which comes from the Blood Throne.

While the initial idea is to run the model with an Axe of Khorne, I have made a little effort in magnetizing the right arm to allow for multiple weapon options...

The Phoenician

Time to post some pictures of the first of The Horus Heresy characters that I have finished. It took a long time, but finally Fulgrim, the Phoenician is done.
This model has been a lot of fun to paint, the details on his amour is fantastic, and I like how his face is showing some of his daemonic side.

Painting a Primarch is not an easy task, and it took me a long time to start this project, it was a bit to frightening to take up the brush and put paint on this big character.

I painted some of his Palatine blades first, to get an idea of what to do with the purple and gold, and found out that I liked the the striking combination of purple mixed with white and the gold on the trims.

I normally do not like the bright colur, but for the Emperors Children I think this fits, and at this time in the heresy, when Fulgrim strikes down Ferrus Manus, they are slowly turning to the pink master - Slaanesh.

Next character to get some paint on him is Calas Typhon, update will follow soon.

Flesh Hounds of Khorne - Jørn's Dogs of War

"Cry 'Havoc!', and let slip the dogs of war".

What to do when $10 / £6 per model seems a little excessive for a unit of Flesh Hounds of Khorne? GW's own Dire Wolves costs just over a quarter of the above price. Even if you do buy the bases from GW too, you're still saving more than fifty per cent.

I've had ten of these assembled and primed for quite a while now, but was waiting on ten more that Tom-Erik brough around when we managed to get a game in a while ago.

With all twenty 'ready to go', I overheard somewhere that they went on 50mm bases now... A quick check on GW's web store confirmed it. Back to square one!

Of course, GW tells us we can use whatever bases we feel are appropriate... I could no longer get past how small the 40mm bases suddenly looked.

After a quick and fruitless round of GW's web store and a number of bits-stores later, I found a seller on eBay who had exactly what I wanted - at far less than the aforementioned web stores wanted.
