Fantastic stuff so far! Great conversions, highly chaotic themes, and excellent paint jobs, etc. Kitbashing Chaos is a skill near and dear to my heart, and your work here does the Dark Gods proud. Plus I'm glad to finally see somebody else using fantasy cavalry as Bikers...
I had a lot of Fantasy Cav sitting in a box... it seemed rude not to... in fact most of this army (monsters aside) has been made using spares from my Space Wolf army. In fact thsi is probabaly the cheapest army I won lol.

Really imaginative conversion work, and lovely paintjobs, too. I spotted on Bloodydice that you go to BattleUX occasionally. A mate of mine goes along to that. Nice terrain at the club!
I do indeed! A couple of friends from different gaming groups I am involved with all came together to make BattleUX so it is fun for me as I used to plan things separately but now I can see them all at the same time.
I have been working feverishly to get these Word Bearers done. The big batch paint of about 100 models has now hit a point where I am picking up a unit at a time to finish off. Last night I managed to get the bikers to a point where I could varnish and leave them ready for a tournament this weekend.
There is a lot more work to be done on these guys but for now they are ready to shed blood for Chaos.
I have to apologize for some particularly bad pictures as these were taken with my iPhone against some letters for a white background with barely any lighting and the varnish still wet and shiny... However, they do show where I am at pretty well. When I have all the blending perfected and pigments thrown on I shall do another post to showcase the unit (as well as a post show casing each unit of the army).
The first half of the blends are done which you can see has been quite roughly applied. Once the final purple wash goes on and then the bright red highlights it should make it pop nicely.
The bases are just some rough filler thrown onto a base with some bricks and skulls from Secret Weapon Miniatures and some stones I have stockpiled.
The Plasma Gun guys are a dirty kit bash but I think the gun is sufficient for the purpose.
I am not going to lie... these guys have been a pain and I have a great deal more respect for fantasy players getting huge blocks of cav painted as there is just so much detail going on.
