This week, continuing with the Khorne warband followers, I've been working on my roll from the Other table which I always give myself when rolling up a chaos warband, which gives me the excuse to paint something a potentially out of the ordinary plus adds some uniqueness to the retinue. I was delighted to have rolled a chimera.
It was never in doubt that I would use the classic Nicky Bibby chimera sculpt which came with numerous head and tail options.
I've had a couple of these kicking about since my early teens and decided to pool my resources and use all of my favourite heads and tail on the one model. Well, maybe apart from the sabre toothed tiger head but it's a little too close to the lion head so I've excluded it. The joins where the heads meet the body are quite gappy so it required a fair amount of green stuff to pack it out and then sculpted into fur with a cocktail stick.
I've gone for a fairly muted palette on this one; opting for a more classical look over a khorne red appearance. Unfortunately, as I feared, it's been an absolute bastard to photograph and I'm not particularly happy with the end results there but it'll have to do.
The Khorne warband grows with some more aerial presence
