Chaoswolf

GW Chaos Knights of khorne.

Recommended Posts

To finish off my resolutionary painting challenge for January, here are some Khornate ( chaos god of war/blood/death/skulls ) knights that I've done up for my very large chaos horde that may one day see action in Kings of War. If you're at all familiar with GW products, you'll see that there at least 3 different generations of figures in this unit.

 

Additionally, I've done a lot of conversions to make the unit more interesting (I also didn't have enough bits to complete it otherwise). Hopefully, it worked.

 

The whole unit ranked up:

Looking at the pictures, I'm going to have to go back and put another layer of gloss coat over that banner, and then some dull coat to try and kill the shine on that decal.

 

I apologize for the lousy pictures, photobucket and/or my camera is being stupid.... <_<

 

Questions, C&C are all welcome.

Ha ha, first off. Good job! Second, when i clicked on your link, I thought it said choas knights of krome. I was expecting a bunch of se-nnm guys. Imagine my surprise when i saw a bunch of red plated guys. Again, though, nice work.

I used to build armies for Warhammer, Undead and Chaos were and are still my favorite.

although i like the oldschool models more then the newer GW sculpts.

 

You painted these very niceley and i like the older models in the unit.

 

Makes me remember i still got a 80's unit of Chaos Hounds to paint.

When I first started building and painting GW stuff, it was with the intent of actually playing Warhammer. The local group only played 40k though. So I just quietly kept collecting and painting fantasy stuff because I enjoyed it.

 

I agree with you, I like the older models better; they have a lot more character to me.

 

Thanks for the kind words everybody!

Looking nice, i especially like the skulls. Any advice for painting up 5 horses and not getting bored? Someday I will have to tackle my flame bringers.

Thank you very much.

 

Advice: Yes, indeed. Work on something else at the same time. While you're waiting for paint to dry clean/assemble/base coat a different mini.

Still have the red paint open/some on your palette? Use it on that mini over there; he'd look good in a red cloak. Take breaks; put the horses to the side for a day or two and focus on a different figure.

 

All of the above is especially effective if, like me, you've got 214 20 different projects all ongoing and scattered all over your workbench at the same time.

 

Alternately, try doing shorter, more focused sessions; IE: I'm going to paint the armor/skin/hair/whatever today. When finished, walk away. If you're still in the mood to paint, pick another item to finish. As soon as it gets to a chore/boring finish the part you're doing and walk away for a while.

 

Hopefully you might find a little something useful in there somewhere. ::):

      Hey there! 
      I decided to hop back on the RPChallenge wagon! 
      These guys have been languishing on my desk, just in need of some touch-ups and basing. So I knocked those out, and I'm calling them done. They'll be fun to use as a marker or something. 
      I did a WIP on my blog, feel free to go check it out! I update there much more frequently than I post here. 
      Hope y'all enjoy them! C&c is always welcome!

      All the information you need should be here.

      As usual, the new format holds a "hard mode" challenge!

      January and February 2019

      Your challenge is: 8!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      Finished - not perfect! Paint 4 minis from your 'shelf of shame."  A lot of our minis tend to end up there for a myraid of reasons - but a common one is 'can't get it to look just right" Don't get hung up on perfection - most models can be re-purchased again later

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      Bringing back a favorite for whatever absurd reason - Fingerpaint February! Paint a non-object/non-terrain miniature using only your own fingers. The exception is that priming and sealing may be done with a brush/airbrush/can/etc

      Hard Mode Challenge!
      Since most of us are in the winter season, and appropriately chilly, take a nod to the Greyhawk setting and the Land of Black Ice. A region of the world covered in black-blue ice. This inhospitable land is often haunted by arctic terrors, black-skinned trolls, and blue-furred bugbears among others. Your challenge is to paint an arctic terror (bonus points if it's a black-skinned troll or blue-furred bugbear) based on this 'sheet of black-blue ice.' Crackle medium may be very helpful for this. The more inhospitable, dark and dreary, the better!

      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!

      All the information you need should be here.

      Due to the revised format, there will be more than one bonus challenge available for this month. Including a "Hard mode" which Is some combination that may or may not have a source behind it.

      Your challenge is: 8!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      Frostbite:
      Considering the sheer cold that's gripping most of us as of this posting: Paint a mini that looks like they've been outside in the winter a little too long - snow in the hair, icicles on shields, etc. Have fun with it

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      Our annual challenge returns. February Fingerpaint! 
      This is pretty self explanatory. 


      Hard Mode Challenge!
      Pending...


      Good luck

      In February, I started work on painting up my next Dreadball Team.  This time it was the Kalyashi team from Dreadball Extreme and the Warden.  They turned out pretty well.  These models were rough.  Most were missing ears one was missing an eye.  (Hence the one having an eye patch.)  A lot of the armor details did not carry over from one side of the model to the other.  This was especially true on the legs.  You would start painting a piece of armor only to find that it disappeared on the other side.  Overall it made it really frustrating to work on and I found myself just trying to get a decent tabletop quality.  I tried the best that I could to make them look manageable.  Not my best work.   I will say that with all of my experience with Mantic, these models are a rare bad batch and not indicative of the quality that I normally see from them.

      The last weekend of April I was able to finish some projects that I started way back in February.  First up I have a pair of Bones Skeletons.  I had used the two of them to test a couple of different paint options for a different project and thought that I would give them their time in the sun and finish them off.  They are not perfect, but I think that they turned out ok.           The photos didn't turn out great.  I will admit that I was in a rush as I was trying to get these models finished and posted for the RP Challenge.  I took the time to fix one of them, but I decided to just leave the others as is.
