They look fantastic! I love your use of colour.

Thank you, too. The color was the one thing, I really had to be brave in the beginning of this project. Then I realized that for a Chaos army, I need not correlate colors with the materials I painted, but rather could go for an effect of 80s heavy metal covers. It was liberating indeed and is certainly very enjoyable.

That is another sizeable chunk added to the growing horde.
Keep up this rate and you will have conquered the Olde World in no time at all.

...you know why I like May, so much? Not only is there my B-day, but also lots of religious & national holidays (at least here where I live) and so I do get more painted. Also in early spring, when the days get longer, but its still too cold to sit outside and enjoy the sun, I get more productive.

I must say, though, that currently the 15mm bug has bitten me and my Oldhammer projects have been put in stasis again...

Great work on those chaos creatures - and a nicely Moorcockian range of colours!

Good to see that old Trish Morrison beastman (on the right of the last photo) as well; I think those are the best beastmen ever done.

Thank you so much! That was indeed one of the main sources of inspiration. I still consider Moorcock's Elric and Corum novels among the best stuff that was ever written in Fantasy.

Btw: I never thanked you, but I am currently enjoying Lyoness in the train to work - and you mentioned it in the other thread on old school knights etc. It's really great.

The Trish Morrison beastman has an elegance in the sculpt that few modern models achieve. It's a single piece with no additional parts, yet looks extremely lively and, what I like most, does not look like a gym-bunny on steroids. Chaos needs more gloom and desperation (apart from colored armor and leggings)!

After a short break, I finished some Age of Sigmar models from the Shadespire game.

The minis are absolute brilliant. I decided to go for grimdark AoS, using a lot of rust, dirt and blood effects.

I was able to take some pictures in the morning. Here they come.

And the leader sigmarine from the same set. The models are very dynamic, aren’t cluttered with details and I really, really enjoyed painting them!

And the last model from the set a female Stormcast Eternal. I didn’t like the head and swapped it for a head from a High Elf archer.

...and because I thought he fitted very well sizewise as well as from the setting: here is the hunter of darkness Abraham von Felsberg.

Here are group shots. I really like how the Sigmarines do not look ridiculously big next to my Rackham Confrontation collection.

That is quite a collection of BEAUTIFULLY painted Old Gems. Although I have a weakness for the Green Guys, they are all WONDERFULLY DONE creations.

Thank you, sir! The green guys also have a special place in my own heart. It’s indeed a shame, that GW transformed them into muscle-packed, short-legged monsters with little brain. I fondly remember those „dead clevur“ boyz from the old fluff, hur hur...

Thanks! The models were a lot of fun to paint....but they take so much longer than my normal 15s that I rarely start painting after work, so this thread continues slowly.

We are moving from our flat and this weekend I am busy packing all my precious models. I hope to be unpacking them in a month.

However, while I did this, I managed a few shots of some models, which I have become particularly fond over the years and took some photos.
