In the cold wastes of the North, the followers of the gods of Chaos gather in their thousands. Hordes of barbaric marauders and armor-clad warriors pour forth from the bleak wastelands to wage war against the soft-bellied wastrels who inhabit the rich lands of the south. Daemonic legions advance with them, proof that the Northmen truly are the favored of the gods. ---taken from the Hordes of Chaos army book by Games Workshop. I've always really liked the aesthetic of GW's old Realm of Chaos range of figures ever since I first found some for sale in an old, off the beaten path (and sadly out of business now) hobby shop way back in my youth. I've been collecting them off and on through the years. (I wish I'd bought more of them when I was younger, they're all OOP and hard to come by now.) I've painted a few of them here and there, but now the time has come for me to start painting them in earnest as a cohesive ( relatively speaking; this is Chaos we're talking about here ) group. I might possibly game with them, which would be nice, but rule of cool is going to outweigh any possible gaming considerations in the assembly/painting of this army. I've got a pretty large collection of old school GW/Marauder/Citadel chaos figures (pics below), but I'm also going to be using figures by other manufacturers (including Reaper) that I think look cool and fit the feel of the army. This is going to be a fairly long running project; I've got A LOT of dudes to paint. I hope you see something that sparks your interest and decide to follow along. I have a few units that I've already finished and posted previously; a unit of Chaos Knights of Khorne: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59177-gw-chaos-knights-of-khorne/?hl=%2Bkhorne+%2Bknights A unit of Chaos warriors of Nurgle: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59534-gw-chaos-warriors-of-nurgle/?hl=%2Bnurgle+%2Bwarriors And a few single figures: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65997-chronopia-elven-axeman/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66394-77065-norgol-irongrave-knight/ And here's (some of) what I'm working with: I also have at least that many Beastmen that I haven't found/unburied yet, and some daemons as well. If you noticed some of the newer plastic Chaos Warriors at the top of some of the pictures don't expect to see very many of them in here; I don't like 'em. The detail is beautiful on them, but they're a little too static and mono-pose for my liking. The older stuff has more character in my opinion.
