So now I can play Warhammer 4th Edition with all the minis from the box set painted. And I just might do that!
Finally finished these tricky bleeders. I’m not very happy with them. Like the Death Guard, they are lovely minis that I think really encapsulate the Nurgle plague zombie look. They are heavily detailed, and you can see by looking at them how much time the poor sculptors must have spent looking at icky pictures of diseases and weird infections and gross skin conditions. But they are blinking hard to paint. There’s just so much there, so many different textures, so many tiny details. In the end I had to accept that there is only so much a boy can do!
C02 Casslin Spellweaver, C02 Smantha Phox, C02 Spectalus Lorewise, CH5 Chaos Familiars, Hero Quest Chaos Sorcerer, LE7 Wizard with a Machine Gun, Mormo Jabberbinder, Oldhammer Weekend Mini 2017, Realm Of Chaos, Thrall Wizards, Tzeentch
One of the bits of The Lost And The Damned that is often overlooked is the section on Tzeentch Thrall Wizards. Instead of a Champion and warband, you can have nine wizards instead. The wizard champion is enhanced by their followers and becomes more powerful in the game. They can all receive chaos gifts and rewards and all that stuff. This has long appealed to me, and so I finally got around to putting a warband together.
There are some fantastic oldhammer miniatures here, all of which were a pleasure to paint. Probably the one I’m least happy with is the Samantha Phox, which is an atrocious mini really – not for the sexism (though it is mildly sexist), but the terrible anatomy of the arms and head (and boobs). My favourites here were the wizard with the staff and bare feet, and the Hero Quest evil magician, but they were all a pleasure to paint.
I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed painting them.
