Ever opened a copy of one of the realm of chaos books when you were ten? Ever tried to own each and everyone of the Jes Goodwin chaos champion? Ever spent days lurking on ebay for a complete Kaleb Dark or chaos toilets?
You're at home here.
After the 2 previous champions of Law I painted, I thought I could paint 2 in a row this time... well without a surprise it took me a little longer which means I couldn't get them all done on Sunday as usual...
In the last post about this warband, Two esteemed painting buddies, namely Jon/Axiom and Nico both suggested the same miniature to join this warband. Honestly, who am I to oppose such talented guys and clearly men of taste who pick one of the nice Jes Goodwin chaos warriors ? Good thing is I had the model so it was just a matter of getting it on a hex base really.
While looking for the chaos champion, I fell upon one very funny looking dwarf from the BC3 Dwarf lords of Legend (given to me as a gift in a trade along the Space White dwarf) :
Obviously this named character needed a little twitching to fit in my warband. Where the chaos warrior was painted excatly like the other models so far, the dwarf required a little attention. I gave him a white beard to link it with the rest of the crew and to keep my restricted palette. The glowing blue eyes worked well with this model sinc it already bears one gigantic eye which makes him look like the maniac he is.
The barrel on his back seems to indicate he's quite a drinker like any dwarf but I like to think my dwarf here is sober and that his sobriety may very well be one of the causes of his extreme anger and violence (in addition of being a fanatic zealot, very bad mix if I may say). That's the reason why he does have a nasty scar on the belly (he likes to think he doesn't need any armour but faith and resolve) and has no red nose (sorry about that Captain...)
I thought a little shot of the 3 shields so far could be fun, not that they're particularly nice or anything but they bring the unity I wanted so that's all fine by me.
With 4 members now, the band is starting to look a little more impressive and I've managed to gather quite a load of new models which will bring some variety while staying in the same vein I hope.
I know Hex bases are not to everyone's taste and I have to say for quite some time I didn't really like the look of them but the more I see them now the more I think it was the best choice really. and if you still think they're meh, well just look at one of the good things you can do with them :
Right now my hobby program seems a bit like a tunnel as I've accepted some commissions and even managed to get involved in some more group projects that are just writing my hobby program for me...
Hopefully I'll manage to get a couple of "candy" models in between as usual ;)
Oh and as you can see I've had to add a new colour to the palette... I'm weak.
