As previously indicated, I was made redundant recently, so intend to build a Warriors of Chaos army.
Having painted a reasonable Thousand Sons army I am feeling Tzeentched out, so will am thinking of maybe Slaanesh/Nurgle. My initial thoughts on 500 point core force are here
I now have the Battalion and, having seen the wondrousness of the Chaos Knight models in the plastic, have deviated from my plan to build and paint the Marauders first.
The Knights will be marked by Nurgle, so I am trying a pale horse look. As they are much the same at the moment and I have not done any conversions, I have only taken a picture of one of them:
White horses usually have dark skin, so I started with a Space Wolf Grey undercoat over black primer.
Over this I added 1:1 Space Wolf Grey/Rotting Flesh leaving pure Grey in the depressions, then pure Rotting Flesh to emphasises musculature, up through 1:2 Rotting Flesh/Skull White, with a very fine pure Skull White highlight on the extreme tendons.
The tail and fetlocks are Fortress Grey, with Space Wolf Grey painted along the hairs, and a Skull White Highlight. Overall I prefer this to dry-brushing the layers on; however it did take ages.
I am planning to do a Devlan Mud wash over the top of the flesh to draw it together.
To help with painting detail I am painting the riders in pieces on wire frames:
I am currently planing a green/brown armour with dull steel detailing.
Depending on how the light is for photography, possibly more tomorrow.
