125. Screaming fire. Tzeentch Disciples part 7.

There be daemons.

Screamers and Flamers to be precise (as well as a sneaky Gorebeast chariot later on)


The flamers got the same treatment my Chaos Warriors did when it came to basing, with an added bit of brass etching.




The Screamers on the other hand were another thing entirely.

Firstly; I hate flying basses and stands in general.
While the later is kinda important, I decided to sack off the clear basses.

Secondly; The flying basses are around 28/ 32mm. Not sure which.
Either way, far too small.

I took this opportunity to upgrade them to bigger basses.
This gave me some room to experiment too, which was awesome.

I finally got to use the dremel!


I decided to use slate to anchor the flight stands in and give some weight to the Screamer so they don't just fall over constantly.


Even with these big chunks of slate and the, now standard, basing scheme, they felt a little...empty.

Luckily I had already been messing about with push molds and casting various bitz.



They didn't turn out too good if I'm honest, however, they're perfect for basing!







I love that runic circle from Eldrad's base so much!

Anyway, I had to finish off the mortal contingent of my army too, so I built and based the Gorebeast chariot too.
I wanted to make it more Tzeentch themed, so I stuck a icon of Tzeentch from the Chaos Space Marines sprue on one of the poles.
I've got some more ideas for this thing, but they'll come later.



All of these basses are going to get some crackle paint before they get undercoated and painted.

That's it for now.

Feedback, conversation and constructive criticism is welcome,as always!

124. Scrolls of power. Tzeentch Disciples part 6.

It's a wall of text update!


In all seriousness this is the post I said I would do in 122. 

1k Tzeentch Disciples list: Godsworn Champions of Ruin:

Exalted Hero of Chaos:
Sorcerer Lord
10 Chaos Warriors
Gorebeast Chariot
Gaunt Summoner
10 Pink Horrors
3 Flamers

General - GS w/ Magical Supremacy
Artifacts of Power:
EHoC - Timeslip Pendant

Gaunt - Souldraught
Spells: Arcane Bolt, Mystic Sheild

GS -Infernal Flames, Tzeentch's Firestorm, Glimpse The Future
SL - Daemonic Power, Shield of Fate
PH's - Bolt of Tzeentch

I've played a couple of games with it so far.
Destiny Dice are amazing (Yay Glimpse The Future).

1 got slaughtered in my first, but because of the DD's I managed to keep bringing horrors back on every bravery check.
My opponent. ended up killing about 37 from a unit of 10 XD

In my second game I was on the back foot until I had 1 good turn of magic, inflicting 22 mortal wounds from 3 spells.

Things that I've learned:

Pink horrors are kinda pointless... blue horrors are better value.
PH's would be great if you didn't have to pay the points for the BH's you split into, but alas, you do.

Going forward I'll replace PH's with BH's and just use Chaos Marauders for battleline.

Big things are hard as fuck to kill.
The Gorebeast isn't big enough.
I need to add a Lord of Change as soon as I can haha

Anyway, that's it.

If you have any feedback, constructive criticism or advice, then I'm all ears.
( I know I should be running Arcanites and Tzangors, but I don't have the money for them XD)

Until next time .

123. Timeslip. Tzeentch Disciples part 5.

A few weeks ago I posted that I'd started painting my Exalted Hero of Chaos (Tzeentch).

Well, he's done!

I know!!

I wanted to get him done to enter him in a local painting competition.
So I set to my task and didn't stop...
I finished him a while ago, but I thought I'd wait until after they chose the winner.





It took about 24 hours-ish total.
It will be a bit more purple that the rest of the army, but I'm okay with that.

Feedback, conversation and constructive criticism welcome!
