2500p painted and ticking

Im suffering from "cant focus on one thing until its finished" and have drifted away from my greenskins a bit in favor for Chaos. I am ashamed but at the same time thrilled!

There are so many ideas in my head i could probably make something like 10 armies of different chaos-clans and species.. Altough Warriors of Chaos is the strongest one with all the possibilities for convertions and painting. And it seems like a fun army to play.

To start with i want to make a unit of nurgle knights and but i want to totally avoid the colour green since i have painted my share of greenskins in my life. So therefore i have experimented alot with different colours and i finally found the one i wanted.

Heres my poor testdummy, hes painted with something simmilar to a tankbrush but it was a quick job atleast hehe.. What do you think of the colours? Is it feeling like it could pass as nurgle?


Thing is i want to tie it together with the rest of the army so a blackish/purple basecolor will be the one on all the different marks.

11-02-2009, 23:04
And here are some PIP of the knights. They will get some cool bases but later.

just incredible we want to see them painted, and also more warriors, cloack need some work try over a green base, it could look more realistic or over a pale brown

11-02-2009, 23:30
Christ, you're a dab hand with greenstuff aren't you, blimey. Some great modelling there, really good.

As for the painting, hell, you did that with a tank brush?! Kudos to you, the idea behind the shield pattern looks really cool XD Use a real brush, smooth it out and it should look suitably nurglish. I agree with the previous poster that the cape needs more work and probably less wash IMO.

12-02-2009, 00:26
very cool, those knights look very good. i think the way you've painted the warrior is a nice break from the typical green that so many nurgle armies are.

12-02-2009, 07:46
Hey guys. Its true about the cloak, i need to work it a bit more indeed. Kinda rushed it with the inks hehe.. Altough i must say it turned out very bright because of the camera.

It is a new brush so it still got its tip intact, otherwise it would be alot messier hehe. When the real painting starts i will use smaller brushes of course and smooth things out more.

Yeah its fun to try something different. I actually got inspired by Darth Vader when he´s dying after fighting the Emperor. If i paint some nurglestuff with skin there will be pale greyish skins and blisters of yellow-redish colors.

nice conversions, for the test dummy..If I think about Nurgle I see a greeenish schema, yours is really nice but I´d add a bit of green

14-02-2009, 14:25
I like it, and I think it will be Nurgly enough.

lord marcus
14-02-2009, 14:39
you painted that with a tank brush? Xl

14-02-2009, 15:29
Sculpting is excellent and overall conversions are amazing. As for the "testdummy" i say keep using that tank brush, i really like the way the woc has come out, it's very reminicent of John Blanches style of painting (his miniatures) and i love that gritty almost conept art aspect on painted miniatures.

14-02-2009, 15:57
I really like the colours, and the knights :D

14-02-2009, 16:25
Agreed. If that's what you call poor painting, please make a mental note never to view my minature collection, which you will most likely find abhorrent.

14-02-2009, 22:47
Thanks for the comments guys!

I have done some more work on the cloak of the warrior and also one more knight have his share of greenstuff finished.

-Lord Marcus
Well not a actuall tankbrush but from another company, its a big brush but much more pointy so i could make the details.

John Blances minis are awesome. I remember the old ones from the 80´s. Good stuff indeed. Altough.. i dont think i have it in me to paint it like that. want it a bit more "finished". But my lack of time could sure need to use this style. Might look real cool for a whole army.. Hmm... darn, now im in doubt! lol

-Lord Azoth
Green it is! And some blue/grey.


14-02-2009, 22:50

14-02-2009, 23:07
These conversions look great. Loving everything I've seen so far.

lord marcus
14-02-2009, 23:47
the sculpting is excellent.

do you have a pic of that brush? it sounds like one i have.

15-02-2009, 11:20
Kaos once more awesome...im a big fan of your work so far and i think you are awesome with greenstuff, i really wish i was that good
keep it up and i will surely follow this thread as well as the greenskin

15-02-2009, 22:05
hey guys, thanks for the comments!

Cheers dude, you will get some more updates on the greenskin too soon. Need to finish those squigghoppers!

-Lord Marcus
Its a Metalimo 4, its red and white and pretty long and pointy. You got the same?

Finally the last knight is stuffed. Need to give them some cool bases now and after that i think i need to make me some ogres. They will become nurgle too only because i have this strong idea on them. But i dont know if i will make a whole army of nurgle.. Think i will mix some slaanesh in perhaps for the contrast. And tzeentch.. and some khorne.. lol

Enough rambling!! On to the pics.


16-02-2009, 00:29
an army of rotting. blaoted norsemen led by some elegant handsome norse prince, i think that would look very nice, how all the army worships this one prestine figure, and how he does nor judge them but only asks for loyalty.. like 300's persians ?? got a bit carried away there.

nice work and that last knight too, very chaos art work.

and please please do the army in blanche style :)... or at least the nurgle-esque units and the others in more blended smoother style perhaps for some variation ?.... in the end it's the bases that link the army together not the colour scheme imo.

16-02-2009, 00:31
Really good job so far, Kaos! I like the paint style. Excellent job! :)

16-02-2009, 11:14
excellent painting and some real skills with the GS!

Any tips on sculpting cloaks? mine always look so, i don't know, flimsy?

16-02-2009, 18:07
I rate this thread A for Awesome. GReat GS work on the minis, please get to the painting of the as soon as possible!

Wow, your knights have the potential to be truly awesome. You're obviously quite talented with your use of putty. Very impressive. I like the theme you've got here, can't wait to see more.

16-02-2009, 21:07
Cheers guys! Sadly no pics today but tomorrow i will have some primed knights to show.

I have a problem! I dont like the current marauders on foot. I want a more cultist feel to my marauders.. a bit more "citystyle". Are there any good plastics with cloaks around or that could be cloaked and look like suitable nurglish marauders? Flaggelants perhaps? Seem expensive.. Im thinking about Brettonnian peasants, could be really good as nurgle marauders if combined with something else perhaps.. or just as they are and add skulls, chaosmarks and the rot of father nurgle.. Hmm... Ideas?

Hehe.. as a matter of fact i have a Slaanesh Daemon Princess that is some 85% finished i could use. Should be strong enough to bind together an army with false promises heh..

Lol, we will see about the blanchy style. will have to try it out as i go i think and i suspect as before that when i have painted the last mini in the army i want to remake the first ones. :P

-Seven Sins

These are the first cloaks i have done so im no pro i must say. simply made a flat piece of GS and put it on the general area where i wanted it and then since it was so thin it was able to fold itself for me with the help of different sculpting tools, making it look like cloth or such. But i must say, this was rotten nurgle cloaks and i dont know if i could make goodlooking elven ones for example. Clean and intact. Oh, i learnt one thing tho. Dont press it down to hard here and there since the GS can get stuck on details and wreck the folds and such. Perhaps when im better i can make some picture tutorial of how i do it.

Hey dude, cool seeing you here too. The minis are getting dry from priming right now so tomorrow the brush will fall upon one of the little kniggits. Keep watching :)

16-02-2009, 21:31
Me thinks that your best off with the flagellants, with some ghoul bits thrown in the stew. Yeah, a bit pricey, but you could probably get them cheaper off e-bay than in the store. I'm starting a corsair themed dark elves army, and whilst pricey the old dark elf warriors are simply not an option. I'm planning on basing all of my warriors/rxb's off the corsair plastics, and I buy mine for like 2/3rds of the price including P&P from ebay traders.

I totally agree with your view on the marauders, but a couple of mates of mine have made some decent ones with mixing in bits from the new mounted ones. your GS skills would aid the cool factor greatly.



16-02-2009, 21:38
flagellents with chaos warriors heads (keep the woc theme) i like the idea of ghoul heads with them Punk said but might make them look a tad vc (unless you only use the more human looking heads. either way you could also pull it off by just using flagellents and then add some of that lovely gs skills, add some blaoted bellies, sores, wounds etc, that would make them look like aplagued followers looking for salvation.

18-02-2009, 22:30
I've been buying Mordheim possessed henchmen models for a cultist marauder unit, and also some similar ones from Ral Partha and other manufacturers. I've some painted Ral Partha minis in my plog.

22-02-2009, 20:51
Hey again, back from the void where daemons steals my time to post cool pics here! have been superbusy and still managed to play a 2 vs 2 warhammer battle. i tested chaos, with some unpainted and proxy to see what i should buy. The dark gods spotted this at once and made my army crumble and my fellow chaosplayer too. BIG LOSS! My nurgle knights charged a saurus unit with 4 knights, one killed by a fanatic.. Frenzied and the saurus had the spell that lower T and S with one per turn you keep it up. I cause one wound... ONE... 1... And lost 2 knights myself and ran like a schoolgirl (altough, a smelly one) and was caught haha... 4 ogres with full command, chaos armour and reat weapons, MoN and frenzy from a slaanesh spell rocks on the other hand. Caused 16 wounds on a charge lol..

Yes yes, enough of that crap. I managed to pain a knight too and behold my to this point coolest model. Im very satisfied with it and the knights are awesome to paint, really fun!

ok so the pics are not the greatest but the batteries died and need to be recharged. And also i will take better ones when the whole unit is finished with bases and a matt varnish to kill the shine from inks and such.

22-02-2009, 20:57
Oh and on the marauders. I will use bretts Men at Arms with some chaos bits here and there as nurgle. And GS of course. They give me the right feel after some consideration.

What do you guys think of mixing nurgle with slaanesh? The beutiful and the ugly! And besides, their magic really goes well together bosting units and other really good effects. Gotta love Curse of the leper together with Ecstatic Seizures moahahaa...

22-02-2009, 21:08
That knight looks great, looking forward to seeing it based.

Elazar The Glorified
22-02-2009, 21:14
That Knight looks totally awesome. Not sure what I can add to that!

22-02-2009, 21:33
You sir, are a genius. That's just stunning!

How dare you to leave the greenskins for chaos:p. But apart from that the models look great. I'm looking forward to the next update.


23-02-2009, 17:25
Looking excellent, now base that ******!

23-02-2009, 17:45
Fantastic knight, dude!

23-02-2009, 19:48
Cheers guys, glad you like it. :)

As for the basing i will wait with it until i painted them all so i can fiddle around with different heights and such on them. Not sure yet if i will use some cork and put some on rocks or just leave them on plain ground. have a hard time seeing heavy cav running trough rocky terrain but maybe these have MAD SKILLZ lol

Dont worry, there will be greenskin painting made and lots of it before the end of may because im going to some tournaments to get my ass kicked hehe.

Now im off to paint the unit champion, might be finished tomorrow. I hope!

*zipping back to the realm*

23-02-2009, 21:36
Wow the colors are really cool, extremely chaotic. The first one's cloak was a bit of a letdown, but you seem to have addressed it well.

Can't wait to see the characters you come up with!

24-02-2009, 16:02

No problem at all, it's the classic STD theme. :)

What do you highlight the black with, pray tell. I'm gonna steal it for my dark elves. There. I said it.

i base the armour with necron abyss, then highlight with hormagaunt purple. After that i ink it with brown ink, black ink and finally a black wash. some edges get a touch of fenris grey, it depends. so its not so very straightforward heh..

i do it like this because when you look at the model in your hand it shimmers in different colors wich i think is cool. depending on how much you use the different inks..

25-02-2009, 16:29
One thing i struggle with when painting, is the order to do things in, i always end up going back over areas a few times (more than normal i think),

If you get time it would be great for me if you could take a few progress shots of how you build up the paint job on one of your guys

eg. Armour/metal areas - leather/cloth areas - skin/fur areas

I only ask because your guys look awsome and i'm trying to up my game from the average joe to somewhere a bit closer to the soaring hights of some of the painters out there (yourself included)

Sorry hero worship over,

25-02-2009, 20:18

Here follows the champion of the unit. Im not sure im 100% finished with him. Think i might go back to him later..perhaps. Not sure, but something feels like its missing but rather than sitting around a couple days and poke a brush at him with no real progress i will leave it and go to the next one. This is a good thing to do.

Anyway, here he is:


EDIT: Looking at the pics now i realise i need to add some more smaller details on the armour, like.. slime and pus and so forth. WIll do that later.

Hehe, this is funny because this is what i do to. Go back and forth. Especially in the beginning of a project until you have the routine in your backbone. But sure i can give you some progress shots on my next model, no problems. I better learn how to use those thumbnails, anyone know how to create those? I suck at technical stuff.

Tutorial coming up!

Cheers- Kaos

26-02-2009, 14:32
Not sure, but something feels like its missing ...
The face of his helmet? Or is that simply a dark blue like the rest of the armor?

Anyway, love the project, really interesting painting and putty going on. All the modifications you've done to the knight plastics are wonderful, really inject some chaos (kaos) into chaos!

have fixed the helmet and other areas with some more slime.. pus or other general filth. hehe.. i might post some pics now or maybe i wait until theyre all finished.

hehe, yeah, more chaos in chaos is gooood! had a slaanesh army before with the old books but they never seemed to be so very chaotic (painting and modelwise). Sold them and now i have restarted with the right start i feel.


27-02-2009, 22:56
To do thumnails, upload your photos as an attachment in the 'post reply' area. I think the 'button' is in abouve the typing field in the right hand corner.

I love your Knights. So sick and gross....mmmmm

27-02-2009, 23:04
k, i thought i should post some pics of the progress of the painting. It looks pretty funny in the beginning, almost like a tzeentch guy hehe


Oh.. this model will be so sweet when its finished, i think the banner will be the most fun part to paint. I lurve freehand heh.. A funny thing is that this is the first model i sculpted a hood on and its the shortest one. They become longer and longer model by model lol..

I have come to a conclusion on what to build for my army (to begin with) and i will join the mounted legion with only ogres as non-cav, save a few units of warhounds. This because i have a greenskin army and i dont feel like painting big blocks of marauders and warriors yet. More fun to paint so i can play a full army as soon as possible. with my speed we are talking a years time of painting even with only 50 or so models hehe. Besides, im into this army most for the modelling. want to start some dark elves, VC and DoC some time in the future too.

anyway, cheers peeps

But dude.. do you actually live on the canary islands? I have been there, to Gran Canaria and Tenerife..a.. i dont remember how its spelled. Would love to go there again and play some warhammer. :D

Heh is fun because i was in Gotëmburg (don't know if that's the spelling, think not ;)) 3 years ago, and i loved it, i like a lot Sweeden, good people, good weather (yep i like snow and cold), good food ^^, Funn language (Jag gillar Sverige??). Of course i'll be pleased to give you a fight if you come to my land hehehe. BTW i live in Tenerife (good spelling).

28-02-2009, 10:59
Looking forward to the rest of the walkthrough! Great work on the champ!



28-02-2009, 11:04
That's some excellent greenstuff work, nice and subtle enough, but pulls of the effect really well.

Look forward to seeing more.

28-02-2009, 17:01
I can't believe you can make some many different colors all look good on the same model. I don't think I could pull off reds, oranges, blues and greens in close proximity like that. It looks awesome.

How did you make the cloaks for the knights...id love to do that for mine

04-03-2009, 18:47
Kaos - thanks for the kind comments on my Plog.

Your stuff is *amazing*. How do you come up with such massively creative stuff? I've never been good at that kind of thing. I would love to be able to do really edgy stuff like this, and I think technically I could pull it off, but I just would never think of these kinds of color schemes and effects.

So how do you do it?

04-03-2009, 19:46

Here are some steps on how i paint my knights for those who wondered. The knight is not finished yet and i will continue painting it tonight.

-Black Gobbo
We can trade weather if you want? You can get my snow and icecold winds and i take your tropical weather? hehe..

-Mr Chair
Its not so strange really, it helps to know a bit about colorcomposition. To know how much of wich color to make another color tone down or pop up. I paint paintings too and i have much knowledge from there wich helps alot.

-Ultimo Ninja
I flattened out a piece of greenstuff on my table, mixed with some water and more water on the table so it didnt stick to it so much. Then i just put it softly on top of their heads first (wich i scratched with a knife so the greenstuff gets a better grip and dont move around) and after that i carefully see to it that it folds and decides wich direction it should go. Also trying not to make it stick somewhere i dont want it too. I have some good sculptortools wich help too. After i got the shape right i started to make all the marks and damage to the cloth. And as the GS gets harder i make some final tweaks here and there bending it where needed to make it look a bit like its flapping in the wind.


Here be pics

Here i have highlighted the Necron Abyss with Hormogaunt Purple on the armor and on the horses legs i used Fenris Grey highlighted with Dheneb Stone. It doesnt show here but the tail is Adeptus Battlegrey+Dheneb Stone. Its a bit rough highlighting but this is because i know im going to use ink and washes afterwards to correct that.

Here i used Brown Ink on the armor and some surrounding areas by accident. Altough i dont care if i happen to paint some brown on the other areas since im going to paint them later and also it makes it look dirtier.
The legs got a wash of Devlan Mud.


Ok, armor got Black Ink watered down. And oh i forgot to tell that i use a bit of watered dish-soap (or whatever its called) to break the surface tension. Makes it esier to use, atleast i think so.


Here i started on the yellow details. Tausept Ochre+Spacewolf Grey. I used some black wash over the black ink, its a bit softer as a last tone over the armor. I also added some blue and pink towards the mark of nurgle to meld it in with the armor.

*tutorial will continue*

04-03-2009, 20:03
Some more yellow details of slime and other nice things. Also i forgot to mention the brown details. They are based with Model Colors: Chocolate Brown and highlighted with Graveyard Earth. Later inked or washed with browns of different kinds. It doesnt matter wich that much really. Theyre not finished yet.

Now the final inks are added to the yellow. This is where it gets a bit fun and makes the whole model tie together. I ink with Chestnut Ink first, watered down. Then some red ink here and there where i see fit. Theres no real plan here, i just go with the feeling. sometimes used scab red and Baal Red too. If i happen to ink over some details i just paint it over again. As a last touch i add some Fenris Grey here and there to build up the contrast and add more depth to the detail.

Some more details. THe armor looks a bit flawed and its because of the ink underneath the wash. This will go away when i spray it with Testors Mat Varnish. I hope!

Well, its not so easy to show you my style of painting and describe it. Im not a good teacher but if theres any questions i can answer them all, just fire away.

As a note im quite chaotic when painting these as i want lots of colours to meld together. I could have gone with the old tested paintingstyle i used before but wanted to up my skills. And i dont paint them too neat either since i figured out that i simply dont have time to if i want to play with the army sometime this year heh..

well, im off to paint some more, i think. Or play some Counterstrike Source hehe..


04-03-2009, 20:09
I'm really loving the look of your army, the sculpting is 10/10 and so is the painting, even though you haven't used green for a nurgle force (HOW DARE YOU:P) the blue and yellow tinges look very sickly and suit your models very nicely.

as i said in my earlier posts there is something about your painting that reminds of of Blanches art, it's very original and i think this technique will look amazing as a whole when the armies finished.

also after seeing your ssculpting i was wondering what you will make your warshrine look like. That is if you do decide to make one.

Thanks Kronos, good that you like it and i actually kept it more blanchey after you mentioned it. I think i get the best of both worlds with what i got timewise. And it looks cool hehe..

I must have a warshrine and i want something really iconic and sick. Not sure what yet..

04-03-2009, 20:23
I must have a warshrine and i want something really iconic and sick. Not sure what yet..

iconic.. hmm.. ok.. how about a few flaggellents converted with your nice gs skills to look like nurgle cultists pulling a cart like chariot ontop of which there is a big fleshy mass of mutation...like a spawn but reveared by the tribe.

04-03-2009, 20:36
Maybe a version of what the crusaders had, a big cross but with the mark of nurgle on it or something like that. A rotting jesus christ on it hehe.. Hmm.. now this makes me get some ideas. Theres a band called Rotting Christ i like too. Good stuff. There will be pondering made on this subject.

And besides.. im not sure on how i will build the army. At the moment i have three different versions i want to build. A mono-nurgle, Slaanesh-Nurgle, Nurgle, Slaanesh, Tzeentch. (got some really good ideas for tzeentch models and slaanesh).

Wow glad to see new stuff, looking great! and about trading weather, is not that great in here 6ºC in the north at night 10 during the day, very wet and cloudy since a couple of months.

05-03-2009, 11:15
Thanks so much for indulging me, and putting up your Paining in Progress shots :D

I feel a bit better about my chaotic approach, and i think i'll take some tips from your work which will really help me..

Looking forward to more,

Thanks again

08-03-2009, 23:41
Some more pics coming up! Only problem is that i got caught by paintingfrenzy and painted everything in one go without taking pics inbetween the stages.. Doh!

So.. i will just show these pics now and describe what i did later on because now its so late.

Anyway, here he is.


so far so good! Im very pleased with the result and at the moment i dont think i will go back and add something more. Maybe after basing..


08-03-2009, 23:46

Some more shots.

And now i have to make a pause with these knights to concentrate on my greenskins again. ave to make them battleready until the middle of may. Going to try play in a big Tournament in north of sweden, think its the national warhammer tournament.

Wow, great stuff in this log, love it!

09-03-2009, 14:42
Amazing style of painting. With how well you place the highlights and choose your colors, I bet you could have some award winning models if you painted them neat like you said you dont do. Then again maybe your models are good because they arent neat? Any way have a good one I'm going to check out your orcs.

Love your style mate. Neat doesn't always mean better. These are untidy yet it really does look fantastic on the chaos models.

If I had to vote for them in a competiton. you would win hands down!


09-03-2009, 17:38
i love the knights man...great stuff
how does it take you to paint one model actually?

09-03-2009, 19:13
Nice that you like them so far. Will be better when they all are finished with some cool bases. :)

well it takes around 5-6 hours of painting at the moment depending on details and size. could probably paint a mini faster the more used i get to the style and colors.

09-03-2009, 21:14
I can't believe you paint them one model at a time! That must be torturous! The results certainly show, though.

09-03-2009, 21:44
I can't believe you paint them one model at a time! That must be torturous! The results certainly show, though.

Hehe, naaah.. its not torture for me. It keeps up my interest to paint to make them one by one as they are so big. Huge models infact! Its a pain to pose them together. But when painting rank and file i paint them 5 at a time.

10-03-2009, 11:40
seems like i still have a long way to go...
anyway i hope you come check out my dwarf log when i make one soon...
would really apreciate the feedback

10-03-2009, 22:22
i was really skeptical of your color scheme at first, but i really like it when it comes together. the more your knights become finished they look like they are actually coherent. the non-green nurgle is unique too. :)

keep it coming! im finding that one mini a week isnt good enough. :)
also im curious to see how you were going to base them.

11-03-2009, 21:50
Very nice paintjobs and top notch modelling. It takes me 4-5 hours to paint a knight, too, but they look horrendously uglier than yours. Simply great! Make more! :D


11-03-2009, 23:12
I love your knights, very Nurgle-ey - the colors, GS, it all really comes together & looks great. Can't wait to see some more!

12-03-2009, 04:19
Ahh I love that iron + tan, rotting flesh feel to your army. By the way, your skill with greenstuff is superb.

12-03-2009, 05:52
MAN that is gonna be so sweet when it is done

13-03-2009, 01:52
You have an awesome eye for composition and colour, I too am very envious and am looking forward to seeing how the rest of the knights and the marauders progress.


13-03-2009, 07:42
I really don't think I've ever been more envious of a painter before. Honestly. It's how I would paint if I had the balls. It's just so unique and inspired. What did inspire you? It really reminds me of Van Gogh's work or Edvard Munch's "The Scream".

21-03-2009, 00:19

While I don't have any Nurgle-units of my own, nor got any immidient plans of getting me any, your way of sculpting and original (and highly skilled) way of painting, has given me a huge dose of inspiration.

Like I wrote in your greenskin-Plog; you're a wizard!

21-03-2009, 22:02
Cheers guys! I missed that so many had wrote since the last post. :O Im astonished that so many like them heh. Makes me want to paint chaos when i really should paint greenskins, argh!

Let me know when you put it up and i will check it out! am myself trying to finish some dwarfs but its a struggle for me lol.. Not my kind of army but then its not mine either, its my dads.

Im also curios on the bases hehe.. i am not sure if i will let them stand on basic ground or put them or some of them on "stones" or such.. i have to experiment some here and see what comes out of it.

Dude, heavy stuff! comparing these with munch makes me wonder what he would think if he was alive lol! But actually its pretty much the same colors as "the scream" and he also managed to make it look unpleasant altough its just pure screamin (no pun intended, really) colors. As for inspiration i mostly thought on alternative colors to use and suddenly a old figure i painted when i was younger popped up, and Darth Vader. Yeah.. good old darth! in the last fight where hes helmet is removed.. he looks pretty nasty and that is without a single green in there. Made me think.. hmm.. how many plaguevictims and inflictions are green and slimey? When i thin of something that looks real nasty i think of black/violet marks with yellow goo running out of it or feverish reds and blues.. when i get the chanse to paint some skin i can show you more what i think of.

Go green! That is Orcs! haha.. i just wrote in the other plog about that. :P

21-03-2009, 23:05
WOW! That mounted BSB is a work of art!

23-03-2009, 12:44
hey there kaos...because of you're other blog i recently went on with my orcs too..and my blog is running up here...i did not take the effort yet to make a topic for the dorfies..

24-03-2009, 21:40
Wow. Your knights are really spectacular. So incredibly well painted! I really like the way you painted them.

25-03-2009, 01:43
... Nicest paintjob I've seen so far on the Chaos Knights absolutely gobsmackingly good!

25-03-2009, 02:47
We..... Need...... Moar

26-03-2009, 21:09
Awesome work!

El Aartos
20-04-2009, 18:00
Wooow these knights are really awesome! Especially all the greenstuff parts you put on it give it a very nasty look. Compared to yours, my nurgle knights look like clean women.

20-04-2009, 19:57
Amazing stuff, you make me jealous. Damn you.

22-04-2009, 09:02
will there be an update soon kaos?

22-04-2009, 19:38
Thanks guys! Wish i had more to show you at the moment but im chained to my desk painting orcs and goblins. But only for some four more weeks and then its back to these puppies again. I cant wait! I have soooo many ideas jumping around in my head that i want to do!

For example:
Tzeentch Knights with burning heads and weapons.
Nurgle Ogres with great weapons(scythes) in chaos armour (gonna take a while to sculpt that heh)
Tzeentch sorcerer on disc with a somewhat spectacular look you could say.
A slaanesh sorcerer on a demonic steed, using the green knights horse.
Nurgle sorc on a demonic steed with close combat kit, i think.

and much more of course..

Stay tuned!

28-04-2009, 00:01
Some lovely ideas you've got there!
It'll be interesting to see how you'll sulpt the Chaos Armour on those Ogres, but I have no doubts that it'll look splendid, if I'm to judge by what you've done in the past! If you're counting votes for which unit/model(s) to start making, then mine goes for the Ogres!

...and 4 weeks, is it? I'll start counting the days *smiles*

31-05-2009, 19:54
Humpty Dumpty!

Here be my models that i have ordered and now await with anticipation of a seven year old kid at christmas.

20 marauder horsemen (10,5,5 strong units)
10 Knights (Will only use five or six mfor a unit of Tzeentch Knights, rest Characters/chariot/shrine)
20 Warhounds

Together with what i allready got i will be able to get together something fun i think. I went dow the road if All Cav this time since it means less models to paint for me. Altough i can see the usage of big chunky blocks of marauders tooled up with characters i have my share of hordepainting with my greenskins.

Excpect some progress soon on the knights btw :P

31-05-2009, 21:39
That was a really good work with the green stuff and the colours were superb, I really like your work...

Warlord Ghazak Gazhkull
31-05-2009, 23:15
I'm looking forward to the progress, altough I like the greenskins more hehe:p

02-06-2009, 22:30
Amezing, really! awesome work there :D looking forward to the progress :)

02-06-2009, 22:38
Excellent looking knights.

07-06-2009, 22:03
WOW! VERY nice!Keep up the good work.

07-06-2009, 22:40
Cheers guys. Glad you like them.

Well i have an update but im afraid it is other stuff than knights. We area group here starting a campaign and we got together buying Mighty Empires wich fell upon me to paint. Thus Tzeentch redirected my fate and i am now painting a whole world instead hehe.. Anyway, im not sure where to post anymore, maybe i shuld make one single Thread of everything i am working on now (terrain, armies both 40k and fantasy etc.. ) in General logs.. ?

Heres a pic of the result so far. This is actually one days work, it goes fast painting this. Good good..!


More stuff coming soon, somewhere.. maybe near you.


07-06-2009, 22:42
Nice world.

07-06-2009, 23:05
The campaign map looks nice and cosy. I want one too :D But I don't think I'd be able to get the group together for a campaign.

10-06-2009, 08:38
Post mo nao!!

10-06-2009, 16:11
I don't know nearly enough about art to tell you exactly what I'm thinking of, but the colors and paint on that banner look a lot like some paintings I've seen - maybe impressionist? I dunno, but the point is that it's pulled off EXTREMELY well and the overall unit looks more nurgley than I would have thought possible given the color choices. This is definitely one of the nicest Chaos armies I've seen and I'll be checking back regularly!

14-06-2009, 14:17


One more knight and the unit is ready to get some bases done. Hope you like this one, stay tuned for more nasty men in armour!

Well Claude Monet would be a good source of inspiration indeed. Its the use of colours im interested in and he was the überking in that area.

Excuses, all i hear is is excuses.. hehe. Now, go paint up a world and then you will see people will want to join you indeed. Especially with the quality you paint!


*edit* There is some shinyness but it will be removed once i have made the bases and given them a coat of varnish, mat varnish..

14-06-2009, 19:50
very nice Kaos, as always great paintjob and the conversion work really comes through once painted and it's ace.

great stuff.

now WORK! and make more :p

14-06-2009, 23:17
Great painting as usual!

15-06-2009, 11:51
would so love to once see them in real

15-06-2009, 16:59
Lovely work as always. I can't wait to see them based and together.

15-06-2009, 19:45
Cheers guys, i will paint some more tonight and see how far i get. :)



Heres my best "conversion" helping me organize all my new toys (adding a few bitemarks here and there of course, gotta taste that shiny plastic wrapping)

Oh how fun.. hmm.. dilemma...open boxes or paint? :O

18-06-2009, 21:02
Well i´ll be damned, is´nt this a update again?!

Quite simply, here are my Plague Knights of Father Nurgle almost finished, only the bases left now wich will be fun to create i think. I have bought different kinds of cork wich i will cut and play with.. moahaha...

Here you go. Finished knight #5


18-06-2009, 21:05
And the whole unit as it looks now. Its just as i wanted it to look like, pure chaos grittiness and spikes, violence.. dirt and gore!


After these.. what will i do then? Hmm... Ogres methinks.. Khorne or Nurgle tho?


18-06-2009, 21:55
They look truly awesome! I love the combination between the black steel and the creepy green colours. It's extremely effective. You should be very proud of this unit :)

Oh and about the campaign maps. Well I won't "waste" time painting a map since I would never be able to hold a good campaign. Our gaming "group" isn't very organized and we dont play too often. Plus I'm not the leader kind of person ^^

Oh and cute kid :)

18-06-2009, 22:24
Go for khorne ogres! Those knights are great... how are you going to base them?

19-06-2009, 01:19
Realy realy realy nice work... cant wait to see more!!

20-06-2009, 00:38
hurry up and open them ... paint them ... let them strike a pose and upload these thingies... cus i like the way u paint dude!!!!

24-06-2009, 20:39
Well there you go, a batch of knights done! It was really fiddly work with the bases i must say.. yikes..


24-06-2009, 20:40

Hope you like them!

Now, where did i put all those boxes with plastics in it? Hmmm...


24-06-2009, 21:33
Stunning, really stunning. The bases work really well, although at the point of writing I have just noticed (sorry, cos it's just a niggly thing I'm pointing out, and it's always a bummer going back to work on models that have just been finished) that grass as the front of the base is still green, so maybe you be brown it up a bit to finish off the whole decaying ground look. Just a small thing :). Love your work, the colour scheme works well, and I love your painterly style, particularly the subtle build up of colours. Can't wait to see what's next!!

24-06-2009, 23:41
They look uber cool now! Is that just cork you used for the bases?

24-06-2009, 23:44
Said it once but I'll say it again, the bases look ace!

25-06-2009, 00:48
That unit looks ace! I wonder how much time you spent on them start-finish?

25-06-2009, 07:40
:O How did you do those bases? They're so great!


25-06-2009, 11:34
Wonderful :) What are you going to paint next?

Lord Azoth
25-06-2009, 14:06
Really beautiful unit..your colour selection and your painting skills makes any unit you take a masterpiece

29-06-2009, 16:12
when i saw that first knight in all its painted glory i nearly cried it was so beutiful (nurgle beutiful? 2 words i never thought id put together lol)
if i may venture a slight comment i think that the nurgle lord on daemonic mount's base that GW use in white dwarf etc would be good inspiration for all ur nurgle base needs!!

Warlord Ghazak Gazhkull
30-06-2009, 10:20
That knight unit looks really impressive:)

Keep up the awesome work.


30-06-2009, 10:51
These ARE the best nurgle knights i've ever seen, the shields and banners are very impressive and the bases are sooo cool

30-06-2009, 18:52
I really like your colour scheme, it looks and feels like the models are weathered and hane been around for a while. The rougher painting style makes the model alive with chaos! Totally Ace!

30-06-2009, 20:57
Hey guys and girls!

Thanks for all the comments, glad you like the unit.

At the moment im working on cleaning up all the horsemen and warhounds leaving the knigts last. I have come to the conclusion that i wont make any heavy converting on the warhounds or horsemen but will give them kickass painting and bases of course.. The Knights on the other hand will be heavily converted and also the ogres and characters. So.. put together, spray and play and then paint everything up as i go is the plan.

About the bases, the grass is a bit too green perhaps but it is the blended one from GW. Its not that green in "reality". But on the other hand im thinking of making some more stuff on the bases later, tentacles, skulls.. teeth and such. As much chaotic stuff as possible! I want the eyes to bleeed.. muahaha

The bases are just normal cork used as ..uhm.. underlay? is that the right word? Under hot plates and such.. I nibbled, pinched and twisted it into the shapes i wanted.. very easy but takes time.

i have no idea how many hours i put down on these since its more a matter of how much time i have to paint on. one knight might have taken some six-eight hours maybe to paint.

Now, on to some more moldlines and plastic glue!


30-06-2009, 22:09
Wow!! a very impressive painting style on the knights! They have a really grim appearance....

See this thread for the first time... suprise suprise :)

30-06-2009, 22:24
These are without a doubt the best painted (and converted) Nurgle Knights I've ever seen.
Awesome from top to bottom.
Looking forward to more "kickass painting and bases". :)

01-08-2009, 21:47
hmm kaos...i am still eagerly waiting for your update...how are things going?

23-08-2009, 21:44
Back from the warp again!

Life is quite chaotic at the moment (no pun!) and this is mostly because im buying a new house, moving and such. Plus the normal timesuckers of life. Thus i have not done as much as i wanted too but i have atleast put together a whole army soon..eagerly waiting for some greenstuffing! Just typical that i managed to pack all my sculptingtools and stuff in one of the boxes in the storage..doh! I will buy some new GS and maybe a tool or make do with what i find useful around me.

Anyway.. I need some advice..! I have enough knights to either make one unit of 9+bsb tzeentch knights, flamig heads and glowing weapons/stuff (looking really magical is the idea) or make a unit of five TZ knights and another unit of 5 khorne knights.. Wich is cooler? I do not care for a minute about what is more powerful to play with, just the looks on the table.

Oh and guess what? i found a 5th ed warhammer starterkit, unused, in one of my old boxes and theres like.. 12 Brett knights there.. i think they will be influenced by slaanesh indeed hehe.. ! The difference in details on the models is pretty big! I will be able to paint lots of cool freehand on the barding. Problem is i need to create some sort of command for them.. Hmm.. or just run them vanilla.. nah, boring..

So, no pics now since its just boring plastics at the moment, no stuffing or such done yet but as soon as i get something cool to show there will be pics.


24-08-2009, 11:15
I'd go with the 2 units of 5... Simply gives you a bit more variety to work on :)
Although a BSB could be fun...
Looking forward to seeing some pics :)

24-08-2009, 12:51
hmm... true, and i think it would be interesting to create khorne knights too, loads of skulls and spikes he he

thinking of it it would give me a unit of knights from every god, The Apocalyptic Riders!

Chaos Puppy
24-08-2009, 21:51
Sounds sweet, I would really like to see some of your awesome painting put into tzeentch!

24-08-2009, 22:10
Yeah, now that you'll have 3 of the 4 gods anyway, it'd be a waste not to do the 4th as well! :D Go for Khorne! Really looking forward to what you do with the Slaanesh knights, though.

Great painting, awesome conversions, wonderful log! Keep it up :)

25-08-2009, 17:32


08-09-2009, 22:21


Okey okey! hehe

Say welcome to Mr Wormlord..Meatface..or whatever his name is. Anyhow this is my Exalted Champion of Nurgle and i cant wait to get him all painted up! But it has to wait since im living with my family at my dads place until i can move in to my new house. All the paints are in a box somewhere..


Meanwhile i have built all the Tzeentch knights and a bsb to go with them so they will get some serious GS work on them very soon.


09-09-2009, 09:52
I've just started to redo my chaos army and seeing your knights has really inspired me, hope you don't mind me nicking your colour scheme for the armour.

Lord Azoth
09-09-2009, 10:01
amazing... can´t wait for seeing it painted...

your work always amaze me

09-09-2009, 10:26
It looks great. Poor horse is all mutated, does it even have eyes?

Chaos Puppy
09-09-2009, 12:12
Nice...That is a truly epic knight, can't wait to see him painted and looking pretty.

Warlord Ghazak Gazhkull
09-09-2009, 12:30
That is one sweet looking conversion:), it will look great once it is painted.

09-09-2009, 22:56
VERY nice green stuffing work there, top notch stuff!

09-09-2009, 23:37
Just... awesome.

10-09-2009, 13:40
woah kaos...that looks really awesome there...
i sure hope you will get your paints out though...that guy seems very much worth it.. :D

10-09-2009, 16:42
Looking great!
Can't wait for you to splash some colours on him!

11-09-2009, 22:07


Can you just, like...

Stop making me feel so damn inadequate?


14-09-2009, 00:16
Thanks guys and possible girls :)

Here you have a tzeentch knight. Took a while for me to get the hang on making flames.. i wonder how they do them on GW and other places. Oh well, its the best i can do with what i got. A pencil (the type wich you press out a small ledpen-thingie with a eraser on the top of it..name? 0,7 BIC pen..) a knife and a plier. It works for flames and stuff like that but no advanced things..


Cheers, Kaos

14-09-2009, 00:57
made this one too this evening. Might notice that i cut away lots of spikes and such. Wanted another feel to these guys than spikey monsters with armour. More magical and weird. Will be fun painting these, especially the flames.



14-09-2009, 10:36
dude those tzeentch knights look awesome...you really get me jealous when i see that...
not that i could sculpt mine so well...but those look really cool...
i cant wait to see them painted...
awesome job as always dear sir...keep it up

14-09-2009, 11:10
Yeah, sweet knights :)
The flames are really good, dont suppose you fancy giving a more detailed tutorial? :)

Chaos Puppy
14-09-2009, 12:39
Talk about ghost rider knight! Those things are amazing, I for one am entirely jealous of your sculpting ability. Keep up the good work!

Warlord Ghazak Gazhkull
21-09-2009, 11:12
Those tzeentch knights are stunning, I can't wait to see them painted.


07-11-2009, 15:09
Really nice painting and GS work!

I'm looking forward to seeing the knights all painted up.

07-11-2009, 16:31
Great stuff on here! Superb GS work on your knights. I love your nurgle knights. They look fantastic. What kind of time table do you use to work your gs in? The nurgle champion is my favorite. Also what kind of tools do you use? Look forward to seeing the color scheme on those knights! *subscribe*

07-11-2009, 18:31
Cheers guys!

Im swamped in life-related(you know, other than the very real realm of warhammer) things so there is no work being done for the rest of this year sadly.

But i try and hang out here sometimes and see what others are doing to build up some inspiration for the future. Mmm... sweet vaccation, come closer... !

I use normal sculptingtools that you can buy from hobbystores ore online, and pencils, knives and such.. whatever works, i use it. Time table for my gs? Well.. i am not sure what you mean. I work with gs for a couple of hours a mini depending on details or construction. Sometimes it takes less time, sometimes longer.


11-11-2009, 18:15
dude your greenstuff work is awsome will subscribe for your future work

11-11-2009, 19:39
The riders look great! The idea with the burning heds is cool. looks promising so far :)

16-11-2009, 12:03
sad to hear mate...but none the less just as important to do what has to be done before you can get back to your brushes....

16-11-2009, 21:46
This thread will not be forgotten ;)

18-01-2010, 19:24

I Am back from the warp again and i got something big and ugly, well soon to be atleast, to show you..


I shaved of some of the ogreparts to replace with a full bodyarmor.. I am not sure yet if i will add a robe or something like that.. but they will get the same hoods like the Nurgle Knights. Might scan scan some sketches but i think i will just go with the flow and see where these minis end up. Will be a group of three.

Cheers, Kaos

18-01-2010, 19:30
allready looking good there
really looking forward to the next stuff coming from you man....
i will be stuck by my pc untill the next update now

18-01-2010, 19:37
Lol, make sure you got a fridge, toilet and phone nearby to survive :P

18-01-2010, 20:09
crap i dont...
you better update soon...i cant leave anymore

18-01-2010, 23:43
Wow, your sculpting on the knights really looks awesome, both the flames and the detailed work on the tzeentch mutations are stunning..
Now - like so many others - I'm waiting for more, am curious how you're gonna do your ogre now :)

And ofc I want to see how you will paint them all up, so am hoping for you to find time again soon for some cool painting over there! ;)

19-01-2010, 09:44
Welcome back, happy new year and all that jazz.. awesome to have you throwing things at us again.. i love the scale on that scythe, i'm paying close attention as my warriors are getting some nurgle love atm.

19-01-2010, 20:49
Here is some progress showing my idea of the armor so far. I will not make it the classic chaosarmor that you can see on the warriors.. I want it to look more.. ancient and, well.. more apropriate for Nurgle. If there is such a thing..

What do you think so far? Ideas?



19-01-2010, 23:59
Good to see you back, really like how this guy is coming along, leg armour looks really good. Ideas wise I keep getting this image of the armour and body fusing together as they decay... not quite sure how that works froma logical point of view (unless the constant cycle of decaying and regeneration mean that the body heals with the armour embedded... i don't know!), or how easy it'd be to do. Anyway, look forward to seeing this guy progress, your stuff never disappoints!

20-01-2010, 10:10
that sure looks nice...
and im glad you updated so fast....i was starting to get hungry...
but that definitly makes the model unique...keep it up

20-01-2010, 10:31
Glad your back :)

That armour look swell. I think you should go for big shoulder plates.

20-01-2010, 13:53
I have been thinking and i really dont want to go over the top on mutations and such but making them look disgusting enough.

There will be big shoulderpads. Same style as the legs, will make the model look wormlike i hope.. big fat.. larvae.. yum yuum

Goint to sculp more tonight and see where it takes me.


Lord Azoth
20-01-2010, 14:15
really nice, love the effect of ancient armour in its design and texture... maybe you could apply over the flat plates some engraving or something to decorate and ornate the armour

20-01-2010, 15:42
Not a bad idea, i will look into it when i have built the armour over the whole model before i add details like that. :)

21-01-2010, 22:44
Some more progress..


More sculpting to come!

21-01-2010, 22:47
Gawd dang that's looking good!

21-01-2010, 22:58
Thanks! Not finished yet, plenty of time to ruin it hehe. :P

21-01-2010, 23:37
That looks terrific so far, suitably ornate and disgusting. Big shoulderpads in that style would be a good call I think.

Looking really awesome so far! I like the Nurgle symbol on his belly plate most of all! Can't wait to see him finished!

This is looking brilliant. I'm in awe of your GS abilities! Have to agree with Monsterzonk the Nurgle marked belly plate looks great! Looking forward to watching your progression on this project.

22-01-2010, 13:08
It's looking good, but why did you even start with an ogre mini? Seems you carved up a nice ogre in vain, if you're covering it all up in green stuff. :)

22-01-2010, 13:37
I was thinking the same thing mrtn. Maybe now that you have a size comparison you can make the basic shape out of a cheaper putty and greenstuff over it.

22-01-2010, 17:59
Simple, i had them lying around doing nothing since i built a Black orc Warboss out of one of them. :) And it saves me lots of time getting proportions and such right. And material.


25-01-2010, 15:09
Noone's pointed out that lovely tail yet? It's absolutely the best part of the sculpt so far, I simply love it! Armour's great - although the larva-theme is slightly too "äkligt" for me... but wonderfully sculpted! Still love the tail most, such a huge amount of character there.

Keep it up!

26-01-2010, 04:14
Great work there, that armor looks fantastic! really can't wait to see the finished model.

05-02-2010, 21:20

Small update. Been working alot on this model lately and i keep learning stuff and screwing up other things so it takes a bit longer than i thought it would hehe..

There will be spikes, nails, studs, slime and other nasty things in many of the holes i have made over the armor. Especially the larger holes.. Hands are "in construction" and they are tricky indeed!! ANyone got a tutorial for hands?



05-02-2010, 21:37
Your GS skills are amazing!

and the ogre looks very "chaos" now
outstanding work here :eek:

Amazing skills with the green stuff and excellent painting as well. Looking forward to see the ogres painted :)

05-02-2010, 22:23
that looks so incredibly cool it makes me wanna run around in circles...
really cool...

06-02-2010, 09:50
that ogre looks ************ awsome

Warlord Ghazak Gazhkull
06-02-2010, 10:02
He looks scary. I'm looking forward to the painted result.


06-02-2010, 12:38
Looking great!

As for the hands, uhm, I don't have no tutorial, but as a matter of fact I've been experimenting with sculpting hands lately myself, and the recipe for fingers (which I assume is your main problem, GS being soft and a rather nasty medium if you want thin rods..) that I've found working, is to first make a "skeleton" of the hand, using either thin wire or staples. When you've made the skeleton, waited for the super glue to dry, then add the flesh, using GS.

Best of luck with it, and once again, looking great!

06-02-2010, 14:02
Thanks for all the comments guys! Keeps me inspired. :)

Noeste- Yeah that is a good idea! I have made a skeleton of greenstuff but i suspect its a bit weak. Will be interesting to see if i can sculpt ontop of it!

Today there will be Warhammer in my cellar, playing with my friends in a campaign we started.. So no sculpting tonight but maybe tomorrow.

Updates will follow!

That's a damn cool nurgle ogre you're making there =O
One question, how do you make the holes? Your sculpt skills are far above mine so I won't bother you questioning about how you sculpt in general but one thing I like about nurgle armours are the rusty holes in it and maybe that's not so hard to make =P

06-02-2010, 15:21
Holes are really easy, just take a needle or a tool with a very pointy edge andsink it into the GS. Then depending on how big the hole you want to be just move the tool around in small circles until its the right size. It helps if you have a layer of water on the GS so it does´nt stick so easily.

Hope it helps!

07-02-2010, 01:19
I love your paintstyle, it feels so refreshingly unique...

07-02-2010, 09:49
Really nice sculpting! me likes!

El Aartos
07-02-2010, 12:27
@Kaos: Thanks for the advice :D It's really easy the way you're saying it and the water might do the trick.

08-02-2010, 12:35
Makalöst min vän!

08-02-2010, 20:36
Cheers guys!

Tack Claudio!

Sculpted some more last night and i went chicken and made a tentaclehand gripping the weapon instead of making a normal(well.. as can be) hand. But, it does look cooler.. Added more spieks and stuff too and will continue over the week and hopefully i can produce a pic of the finished model this weekend.. I hope!

Man, your gs skills make me sick to my pants! This log is freaking awesome.

09-02-2010, 14:45

Yeah I did the same thing last time I tried to sculpt a hand. Chain mail mitten also works well.

*sits down and waits for the new pic to shop up*
Go on with the awesomeness =D

10-02-2010, 08:33
:eek: SICK!!

realy nice nurgle ogre!!

10-02-2010, 22:57
These have to be some of the best nurgle WoC stuff I've ever seen if not the best. Can't wait to see what else you have planned and the finished ogre.

11-02-2010, 20:42
Whats this?! An update but no ogre? Betrayal!

Naaaaaah.. I just found a box.. uhm.. a couple of boxes of old minis and stuff and dug out these gentlemen/women/mixed genders! Ah.. the good old VERY COLORFUL AND BRIGHT times hehe... The slaaneshdude on the steed was very damaged and you can see lots of paint falling of and theres even parts falling of. I put it together as good as I could with some First Aid Greenstuffing and perhaps some day when i feel cheerful I paint him up good again. That goes for the two Tzeentch guys on "futuretobesculpteddiscsoftzeentch". Also found the footsluggin Archaon and is it.. Crom? To be painted when i feel its the right time. Perhaps for the next WoC book then hehe..



Going to sculpt now! Toodles!


11-02-2010, 22:35
Wow! Double update!

I have finished the ogre now and heres some pics of it. Hope you like it!


I have decided that this year i will build and sculpt everything i need to have done before moving on to painting. This way I can actually play with an army consisting of the real models that I am supposed to be using according to the armylist hehe..

Hmm.. what next? Another Ogre perhaps?


11-02-2010, 22:56
He looks superb, great job. Look forward to see you making his friends! Are you going to use a similar paint scheme to the nurgle knights? I was also wondering if your tzeentch knights have received any paint yet?

11-02-2010, 23:07
Hey Elboy!

Yeah the ogres will get the same colors as the knights, perhaps some smaller variations here and there for fun. Can never be sure until i sit there painting it hehe..

I have not even touched a brush since those Nurgle Knights sadly as i have been busy with my big realsized model of a house that i am currently living in.. Amongst other things. There is still stuff to be sculpted on the Tzeentch knights now that you mentioned them! I must finished what i started i think..

Next project---->>> TZEENTCH KNIGHTS


11-02-2010, 23:22
Ah, the joys of moving house... painting and decorating walls is not nearly as much fun as painting models, but can be just as therapeutic, i find :). Do you have much decorating to do to the new house?

Can't wait to see the tzeentch knights again, those first two models look great!

Man that gs work is looking sweet as hell!

12-02-2010, 08:08
this nurgle one is really disgusting!!..in the best way he can be... congratz!

12-02-2010, 16:04
looks insanely awesome...also the old painting is really neat...
wish my painting was like that...
how long does it usually take you to paint a model like that?

12-02-2010, 18:31
Man that gs work is looking sweet as hell!
^QFT. That's a really, really impressive nurgle-y ogre.

Also the paint-jobs are... err... really colorful. But color choice aside that's seriously good painting.

Desert Rain
12-02-2010, 20:21
Awesome work with the green stuff. The tail thing is a really nice touch.

12-02-2010, 22:10
That is truly some amazing GSin on that ogre. Very inspirational. I think you captured nurgle perfectly! Cannot wait to see more! That Slaanesh guy on steed looks great. I love the color pallete on him.

El Aartos
13-02-2010, 08:34
Wooow that's truly a REAL nurgle orgre o.O
I really can't wait 'till it's painted and done! And I'm looking forward to all your next sculpt projects, for they will be at least as awesome as this one =D

13-02-2010, 20:03
Thanks for all the comments!

Breazer- I have no idea how long time it took to paint those but i have a faint memory of struggling with layering all night long. So it probably took a very long time to paint them like that. The slaanesh dude is around 13 years old, the others too.. I think i am quicker at painting now than then also.

Well i got some more pics for you. Dug out some more minis and repaired what i could and also a couple tzeentch knights that got some more GS on them!



13-02-2010, 20:08
Some WIPS of old. Had an army of Slaanesh warriors and demons in the last version but i sold them. The shaggoth and demonprincess is a couple remnants from that army. Thanks GW for removing marks on Shaggoths... And making DP even more useless.... Might finish them of just for fun to have them around.


A very bright Wizard! I like this one. And i see that he has stolen the staff from the tzeentch dude from 40k i showed earlier.

13-02-2010, 20:12
Heres a guy i painted a couple years ago for fun. Thought i could use him for a Nurgle or Deathwizard until i got a real one when i use infantry.

Another old one i can use as Death or Nurgle perhaps..
*edit* Gotta love those red nails hahaha!

Well thats it for now!

See you on the other side of the warp!


13-02-2010, 21:48
Nice stuff, I especially like the shaggoth. Should work as a Ghorgon if you ever start a beastmen army.

13-02-2010, 23:14
Great stuff as always, really like your old models

14-02-2010, 10:24
ookay, i did NOT see that coming! great stuff though! Im very impressed with the daemon princess. how does she speak? :P

14-02-2010, 10:52
mrtn- Hmm.. i dont think Beastmen will be a project for me. Too close to greenskins for my taste. I will hold tight for the next greenskinbook and hope for some better rules instead!

Nordic- Like all women she uses telepathy!

I have noticed that the skintones are really messed up on the shaggoth and princess due to the brightness. Not as smooth as in real life. Oh well.

I am blessed by Nurgle this weekend.. Might take it as a hint to continue with ogres perhaps? Bleurgh...

14-02-2010, 10:57
Looking great! I really like the Shaggoth, even though my eyes hurt! Nice job on the Princess as well! Very slaaneshi!

Nordic- Like all women she uses telepathy!

And she'll probably make you feel it for weeks if you don't respond to it immediately and appropriately, eh? ;)

Oh, and all hail Father Nurgle!

Monsterzonk :skull:

14-02-2010, 11:07
haha really cool those old models...specially because you also painted them in that style...
i would definitly like to play a real chaos incursion with you...and my children will join you for some more punch...muahaha
keep it up kaos...your stuff is looking more than awesome..besides you are a great inspiration

14-02-2010, 11:20
Looking nice as always!! and u sure have a gift those old models of u are looking verry nice tho the colors are a bit bright but that was it in the old days :)

14-02-2010, 18:19
The demon princess is inspired. Her face is quite disgusting. In a good way, of course.

El Aartos
14-02-2010, 22:44
Nice old models you've got there mate! I really like the slaanesh daemon princess and the graffity-colored shaggoth, he's so bright it almost hurts my eyes but he looks really cool. Your way of highlighting is very cool on these models.
Your GS on the knights looks very good aswell, can you give us maybe a tiny little hint how you do that? Besides putting lots of time in it there must be some technique to sculpt it like that.
Keep it up dude, I'm getting more and more interested in your chaos.

15-02-2010, 13:13
Please remind me to wear shades next time you show your old models ;)

15-02-2010, 19:16
Your Ogre turned out great, hope we get to see his friends in not too much time!

Really like your old models as well, great work with colours and converting as always. If you got more great stuff hidden, please don't be afraid to share!

16-02-2010, 22:38
Thanks for all the comments guys!

Noeste- Dude, i just got some 30+ pics from a friend that bught my old chaos army plus i found more minis down in the cellar. I might put it up somewhere and link there some day when i have finished going trough them all hehe..

Claudio- Will post a warning next time!

El-Artos- Well.. i dont know if its a technique or a organized chaos when i make those flames. I can try and describe shortly what i do:

1: cut the place where i will put GS on in criss-cross patterns. Makes the GS stick better.
2: Add superglue on the area and stick a bit of GS there in the right size that you want.
3: Start with some sculptingtools dipped in water to press down the GS towards the surface to create the base of the flames and also stick it more to the superglue. Smooth it out.
4:Take a pointy tool, preferably a real sculptingtool though a pencil will do too(those you click on to pull out more of the leadpen, dont know the english word for it) and dip in water. Then start to make folds and kinda.. drag the greenstuff upward and in ..uhm.. "flamelike" patterns. Now.. this is the tricky part since i cant really describe what i do here anymore.. I just use my sense of how flames move and try and pull, drag, press, shift the GS to resemble flames.. It takes practice so you just best try it out as you go but if you use the basics here it should help.

Since the GS is stuck at the base it wont fall off and you can pull it upwards and shape it with whatever tool you find do the trick. Even a scissor might come in handy to cut the flames into shape.

Hope it helps!

Breazer- That would be fun! Just have to finish my army then hehe.. You will probably finish 5 armies in the time i have done mine.

Monsterzonk- "And she'll probably make you feel it for weeks if you don't respond to it immediately and appropriately, eh? "
Sure will and it happens all the time! But i think she wants me to finish her.. i think? Hard to know, i dont speak Telepathy hehe..

Oh and Nurgle blessed me plenty.. a whole week of my life to his pleasure! Alot of praying to the white altar indeed..

Ok!! Now some pics.

New Ogre
New knight with big flaming shield.
out of curiosity i primed the ogre i just finished black to see how it went together.

Thats all for me!


17-02-2010, 10:46
Thanks for the nice guide for those flames of yours, I might give it a try sometime.

Love the pose of that new Ogre, your recent week of prayer is surely a sign for you to continue with those Ogres until the whole regiment is done!


El Aartos
17-02-2010, 17:57
Thanks for the guide man, I'll definitely give it a try. In the end all GS skills are the same: get a wet tool and push the greenstuff into whatever you want =P

17-02-2010, 18:54
Exactly El-Aartos, same basic stuff every time. Make it stick to where you want it and then use a wet tool so the tool itself dont stick to the GS. :)

17-02-2010, 19:50
I LOVE the burning eyes of the Chaos Steed, I'm definitely going to try that on a character's mount, or maybe a character himself... Would be really fiddly anyway...


17-02-2010, 20:59
The clicky pencils are called "mechanical" pencils in English. :)

Anyway, excellent stuff!

21-02-2010, 22:46
Ahaaa.. Mechanical Pencils! Yay, now i know the true name of this mighty tool hehe..

Was going to add more pictures but i had forgot to load them batteries up.. Doh.

Altough i have created a list of what i will build this year and hopefully start painting so i can play in some tournament next year.

2250p WoC

22-02-2010, 01:01
that seems like quite the task...even though i have no doubt you will manage at least half of that.. its a nice distraction while the powers of the Waaagh recharge to a new edition

El Aartos
22-02-2010, 06:18
That's an interesting list, it may be a bit offtopic but how does this list work on tournaments?
