For a while now I've been dipping in and out of Warhammer, keeping up to date with Warseer and GW releases, but not really finding any time to make or paint anything. However 2 days ago a friend came round, out of the blue, and gave me my first fantasy battle. I used my hordes of chaos army that, sadly, has fallen into massive disrepair. After the battle (a solid draw) I decided that it was about time I fixed up and carried on my army to 2000 pts. The army is going to be mainly mortal with some beastman and daemon elements, aswell as a couple of units of DOW Ogres.
5 Chosen Knights
Chariot of Chaos
5 Mounted Daemonettes
5 Marauder Horsemen (2 of 5 made)
4 Chaos Ogres
Lord Of Chaos
Sorcerer of Chaos
15 Chosen Warriors

The unit I’ve chose to start with is a unit of chaos marauders to combat my friend’s pesky dark riders that almost cost me that fateful battle.
Pictures of the standard bearer are below ( I apologise for my picture taking ability in advance):
This is the rider, he’s made from wood elf glade rider legs, hooded head and arms with a dark elf warrior body and a cut down Saurus shield. I’ve used greenstuff to sculpt on a cloak and fur around his shoulders. However I’m not at all happy with the cloak and I need to do another layer of GS on it to smooth it and add ridges etc.
Standard Bearer Mounted. I used Milliput to sculpt armour on the horses head, hopefully to give a complementing look to the armour already present on the horses head. I used 300 grit wet and dry to smooth this out.
