After a year and a bit of painting Guardsmen and starting not Squats (Wargames Atlantics Einherjar) for games of 1st ed I thought Id return to my one true love Chaos (not Kebabs, but they are a close second). After a bit of head scratching on what to do and all the retro feels bouncing about currently due to the 35 years of 40k I started thinking back to the glory days of my younger years and my first proper Chaos army (not including the mish mash of stuff I had from RoC). The army in question was inspired by this John Blanche army in the 2nd ed codex, but back then my idea of painting was literally throw paint at the mini and hope it looks ok, so it looked nothing like what I was trynna achieve. Now at least I understand shading and blending (even though I still throw paint at the minis) so I thought Id have another pop at trying to replicate (shamelessly copy) this army. I have even picked up a Mephiston and Vet Sgt Centurius for this project, and Im currently eyeing some Asmodais on ebay for the Icon Bearer (still trynna find the old Verminlord for the right price though). There are some other influences Ill be 'borrowing' ideas from, some are other Blanche minis shown in WD 150 and Fred Marcarini's minis (painted by some chap called Lorenzo) in WD199. Blanches stuff. Freds. As they are all Khorne marines I think that has dictated what God Ill be following this time around, but I dont want to be locked into World Eaters, so I have decided to combine them with younger me's other interest of Occultism, Demonology and the Esoteric (I used to play Dark Angels and the fact they named the characters after Demons amused me, clearly Traitors). So it looks like Khornate Word Bearers or a renegade chapter that used to have worryingly close ties to the Ecclesiarchy before they fell. I dont really have much in the way of 'lore' for these yet, and I dont remember what I wrote all those years ago other than they were super edgy and called themselves 'The Damned' (I went through a bit of a dodgy Goth phase before I discovered Black Metal) so I get the fun part of starting from scratch (name will be changed as well) so I guess its time for me to dig out all my old books that would have gotten my door kicked in my Matthew Hopkins back in the day and start bashing ideas together into some form of background.
'NOW ALL WE NEED IS SKIN' So I finally decided to start a thread for my Daemon army, as most of you know I have an unhealthy obsession with Hellraiser, Body Horror, Gore, non PG13 Warhammer content and naturally this army will pretty much be more of the same. Currently I have the contents of Wrath and Rapture (or Khorny and Horny as WarAndChaos calls it), another 10 Daemonettes, 5 Daemonettes on Steeds, Daemon Prince and the classic Realm of Chaos era Keeper of Secrets to be cracking on with, so I have plenty to keep me going as well as my 'Hellbound' Slaaneshii renegades. Last night I knocked up a quick test mini (kinda, still unsure on a few bits) based on Julia from Hellraiser, the loincloth will be painted as skin, corset black or reaaaaaaaly dark purple, and the claws I am unsure on, maybe purple for the claws and black for the corset?? Ideas guys, c'mon don't leave a brother hangin... One thing I will start doing is sculpting a bit of spinal chord down the back to add a bit more detail to the mini, maybe a little bone structure on the face of a few as well so I'm not using duplicate heads (a lot of the Daemonette heads I cant stand, I prefer them bald like the first ed minis). Im thinking about the level of flaying across the force as well, whilst I think a fully skinless army would look good realistically time, motivation, depression and other factors will probably mean Ill get half way through a unit and then move onto something else and forget about it. So there will be some totally skinless, some looking normal (for a Daemon) with for example the skin on their back removed, a butterfly pattern peeled away from their face or Slaaneshii rune or some such beautiful images. Think Ill leave something less morbid to end the post... Here's a flower...
