Like most people, I’ve become rather taken with the 8th. Getting swept up in all the excitement, I decided to revisit my first love, the Druchii. With dreams of conquest, riches and slaughter, Cynath Ch’Ill, or Kynathis Ch'hll (pronounced Kai-Nath-Is) the Bastard Prince of Naggarond sallies forth at the head of his household.
Cynath Ch'ill, the Disgraced Prince of Naggarond. W.I.P
The basis of this model was the first Dark Elf model I bought and has been my general for over twelve years. This is my fourth version of the Black Prince and is nearly complete. I wanted to convey a sense of pomposity, superiority and arrogance. The pose is based from this painting of Napoleon...
...although Cynath does not share the same level of tactical acumen. Throughout the years he has led his house noble Cold One’s on raids all across the Warhammer world and is more than a little reckless when it comes to accepting a challenge (he has a fairly decent record as well, slaying Grimgor and Valten on foot in single combat, no doubt impostors). However, I have lost a butt load of games with my dark elves (I started playing them when they were rubbish). Since the Black Prince’s favourite tactic is charging as fast as he can toward the enemy and letting his household catch up with him, it seemed only natural that his impudent nature would see him disgraced somewhere down the line.
So where do the fell scions of Chaos come into this? I got back into the hobby through creating a selling truescale WOC (warriors of chaos) chosen on foot over a year ago. I liked the outcome so much, I decided to develop my skills my sculpting Korpus Festerheart, which developed into a thread all on his own. The thread has been left stagnant for a while and i’ve decided to scrap it and relocate the work here with better photographs. I’ll post up the content I wrote for that blog again, so please bear with me if I seem like I’m repeating myself.
I hope you enjoy my work, and if you enjoy the blog please leave a comment.
