Skarloc, the first of many Elves - I hope!

 I have always admired the wonderful Jes Goodwin Warhammer Elf range but until a week ago never really had the urge to collect them; I guess I have always been absorbed in too many other projects. I did own Skarloc's Elf Archers and the Chariot when I was a kid but they have been long gone from my possession.
 After spying one of the Elf Captains (which I did end up winning) last weekend on ebay I began pouring over catalogue pages of all the other Elves from that range and it went from there really. It's going to be a long term project and something I can collect slowly over time. In recent years my wanted list has been pretty thin as I pushed to finish my collections a long time ago. I definitely miss the thrill of the chase when it comes to collecting miniatures so an Elf army will no doubt rekindle that feeling.
 Anyway, for starters here is Skarloc of said Elf Archers; one of the few Elves I already had kicking around in my boxes. He's not the original one I owned from my childhood but one I bought off ebay a few years ago just because he was going cheap.

  These are the first checked trousers I have painted for quite a few years. Have wimped out a few times recently due to a bit of self doubt but these seem to have come out okay.

Amratha Mangorer - Arch Demon of Chaos

 While I'm in between Beastmen I have decided to focus my attention on a figure that had been sat around basecoated on my desk for months. It's always a shame to see a fig that's been started and not finished just sat around in half painted limbo as I've mentioned on previous posts somewhere. Anyway, new house/painting desk, new regime! I was very glad to have him completed after so long and I plan on getting the build up of others like him finished off in the forthcoming weeks/months.

This fabulous sculpt, Amratha Mangorer from the Citadel C28 Giant Demons range was one of the stand out figures when I turned the pages of the 3rd Citadel Compendium for the very first time, way back. 

A long overdue and most welcome addition to my forces of Chaos.

First Beastman painted in 18 years

 I thought it was high time I added some Beastmen to the army with all the warriors that are crammed in. As the title says it's been many years since I've painted any. I stripped a few recently from their mid 90's paint jobs plus there's a few I still need to acquire to complete the unit. Anyway, here is the first.

This brilliant Jes Goodwin sculpt is probably my favourite of all the Realm of Chaos Beastmen range.

Citadel Chaos Army Update - Warriors

 It's been a progressive week for adding to my Chaos horde. First on the list are 5 Chaos Warriors. These are the first warriors I have painted for over 10 years. I have added an element of green to these guys; something I had planned to do with my older paint jobs in the army. They should break up the mass block of brass when they join the ranks.

Arack, Ivan Edaik, Kinky Chaosette, Sir Gigal de Appliance, Vostnar Axelord

Chaos Champion, Kinky Chaosette. A classic limited edition from the golden age.

Chaos Sorcerer Slargash the Defiler & Chaos Demon

 I thought it was high time I resumed my Chaos army; apart from some Chaos Knights earlier in the year, it has been over 10 years since any of them have seen any paint.

 Here is Slargash the Defiler; one of my all time favourites of the Chaos Sorcerers. His colour scheme is that of the character from Heroes for Dungeonquest which this figure was used for. Not very original I know but I always loved the colours they originally used for him.

 This Chaos Demon is a fantastic figure from the C22 Creatures range.

Marienburg Warband Update

Next up in my slowly progressing Marienburger warband is sellsword Ludvig Kögel. I used a Talisman Swordsman for this character and, like the leader; another Aly Morrison figure. My aim is to have the entire warband made up of Aly Morrison sculpts; whether they be Citadel Fighter selections or from the Marauder range.

Confrontation Helmawr Leader

 I acquired this limited release gem recently and he's rapidly becoming one of my favourite figures of all time. Unfortunately his power axe was a bit miscast so I had to do a bit of work on it.
I am planning a Helmawr gang among many other projects so look out for more gangers making an appearance over the next few weeks.

See how the lower half of his power axe has been miscast.

I managed to do a repair job using milliput.
