    Mousekiller's Mortals of Chaos

    MORTALS OF CHAOS

    MacDeath, Khorne Lord of Chaos = 249 points
    Kurgan Bloodcaller = 113 points
    Tumeric Bilestone, Lord of Plagues =
    KURGANS BASTARDS, 20 Marauders
    Death Dealers, Mounted Marauders x5 = 115 points
    Kurgans Bred = 40 points
    Gargoyles of Bloodcaller Keep x5= 75 points
    CERBERUS, Spawn of Chaos = 50 points

    TOTAL = 768 points



    THE BLOODCALLER CLAN GATHERS

    In the far north of the Chaos Wastelands, the Bloodcaller Clan has existed in the frigid cold and desolation for nearly 80 years. Father Kurgan Bloodcaller wandered to the land in years past when he was first called to serve his master, never questioning why the Blood God would ask such a sacrifice of him. Over the next few decades, Kurgan strengthened the clan with his own blood, by capturing woman from his various raids and breeding them for sons, as well as breeding strong hounds. Daughters are fed to the hounds in a ritualistic manner, as well as the weak sons. In the Kurgan Clan, only the strong survive.

    In the 60th year, Kurgan finally realized why Khorne had sent him north, why he favored him with so many wives and such prosperity. That year his harem had already birthed nearly 70 new males, and so the day seemed unremarkable at first. One of his harlots went into labor, but this labor lasted for days. Soon, Kurgan began to consider the prospect that he would need to feed her to the hounds to quiet the camp. As he lifted her up, the child inside of her ripped through her abdomen and immediately began feasting on what was left of his mother. Lifting the child up he saw the mark of Khorne emblazoned on his head. Taking this as a sign he tossed the child into a pit that contained three of his fiercest warhounds, only to witness MacDeath ripped the hounds to pieces. Over the next few years MacDeath would prove his worthiness, even slaying twenty one of his jealous brothers who attempted to murder him.

    In his twentieth year MacDeath entered the tent of his father to tell him that he had been visited by a bestial demon, who had given him the command of Khorne to take the Clan and begin heading south, unifying the clans of the North and slaying those who refused to submit.



    THE BASTION OF BILESTONE

    Tumeric Bilestone grudgingly shifted his decaying mass away from the pile of corpses that lay in front of his small army. The stench of decay and buzzing of flies was like a feast to him, and brought on such a feeling of ecstasy. It was for these moments that he now existed, purging the life force of those mortals who refused the indulgence of his master, the Great Lord Nurgle. He and his band now found themselves in the extreme north, every day growing closer to their masters lair. How many years had passed? How many years since he was known as the second son of the renowned Preceptor Franz Feurbach of the Knights Panther? The years no longer mattered. All that mattered now was helping to spread the Lord Nurgles pestilence to the world, to bring the glory of his god to the unbelievers. Some of his men moved forward to grab bodies from the pile. They would lay a few of them in Tumerics tent this evening, so that he may spend more time in their decayed embrace. His men knew him well.

    As he slept that evening, it was not the sleep of man. His dreams were plagued by images and strange voices. Finally, through the haze of foggy dreams, one voice was heard clearly, the voice of his lord. "Tumeric," it boomed. "You must gather your forces, the time has come!" He awoke in a great sweat, the sweet smell of the maggot covered bodies permeating the room. It was finally time. He would prove to his lord that he could rise to greater heights, perhaps even to become the Everchosen himself!

    Re: Mousekiller's Mortals of Chaos

    MACDEATH, CHOSEN OF KHORNE

    Born of a harlot of Kurgan's Harem, MacDeath was an unnatural birth from the beginning. After days of labor, the infant tore through the stomach of his mother and feasted upon her flesh as his first meal. Kurgan immediately bowed in reverence when he saw his own child gifted with the mark of Khorne emblazoned on his forehead. Knowing full well that this was a sign from Khorne that this child was destined for great things, and that Khorne would let no harm come to the boy, he brought three of his fiercest war hounds to a pit and dropped the baby boy inside. MacDeath, even in his infancy, landed feet first and brutally strangled all three mutts to death, proceeding to suckle blood as if feeding from his mother when he was finished. His father then fashioned a great cloak from the hides of the hounds and gifted it to his son. This victory would be but the first of many that Khorne would challenge him with.

    During his tenth year, MacDeath encountered a monstrous demon of a horse. After four days of fierce battle, MacDeath finally wrestled the beast to the ground and forced it into submission. Over the next years a great resentment grew in the tribe from Kurgans favoritism of his son, and in his 16th year twenty one of his brothers entered his tent to slay him, only to find death for themselves. Now the skulls of his brothers decorate his horse and cloak, a deadly reminder to all of his kin of who now rules the clan.
    In his twentieth year, a bestial demon visited MacDeath while he was out hunting. The Demon itself challenged him to personal combat and a clash of immense power emerged. The Blood Thirster, filled with rage as these demons tend to be, charged forward bellowing. MacDeath waited for the charge patiently, sidestepping at the last moment to leap upon the monsters back and using every muscle he possessed to grasp the horns protruding from the demons head wrenched its head unnaturally, snapping its neck. Both beast and man slumped to the ground, and when MacDeath looked up again the Demon was gone, replaced with a monstrous ethereal face which he knew to be the spirit of Khorne.

    “You will be my champion in the times to come!” The voice of Khorne bellowed. “Take the bastards of Kurgan forward and unite the tribes. Those who do not submit to you will add their skulls to my throne.” Motioning towards the ground at MacDeath’s feet, the presence spoke again. “I gift you this blade with the spirit of this greater Demon. Go now south MacDeath, and return only when the world once again bows to the will of the Chaos Gods!”

    KURGAN'S BRED

    These warhounds have been raised by Kurgan to be the fiercest, toughest, and most controllable animals in all the northland. Fed only human flesh since birth (mostly from the undesirable children and women of Kurgans Harem), these monstrosities are larger by far than any normal hound and often grow giant mutations gifted from the chaos gods themselves.

    DEATH DEALERS
    Some of Kurgans breeding have been raised to handle horses, helping to round up mutts and potential "wives" over the long years. The Death Dealers are led by Angus Bloodflank, one of Kurgans more bloodthirsty. He delights in the ringing of battle, as he knows that with battle comes the ability for him to kill.

    KURGANS BASTARDS

    Bred from the women of his own harem, Kurgans Bastards make up the brunt of his tribe. They are all his children, as any children birthed to any one else are immediately sacrificed to the gods, as are any female children. Kurgan often delights in feeding these offspring to his dogs.

    The Bastards have been raised to be pure killers as well, matching the ferocity of the Bred, as any who exhibit weakness along the way are also sacrificed. Bearing down in combat with massive, two handed weapons of their own choosing, they have proven the match of many tribes of the northern reaches.

    Great looking unit MK. The dark clothing and armour really contrast nicely with the light skin tones.

    Re: Mousekiller's Mortals of Chaos

    @Codsticker: Thank you very much! I am still working to better balance that aspect of my painting.

    CERBERUS, SPAWN OF CHAOS

    This is the most ferocious of all of Kurgans hounds, worshipped by some of his breeding to be a gift from Khorne himself. This monstrosity has the heads of three hounds, a mane of poisonous snakes, and the tale of a dragon. Spawned to the world in the same moment as MacDeath himself, the howls of Cerberus' mother could be piercing the night with the screams of agony of MacDeaths', creating the perfect harmony to welcome both beasts into the world. And, just like MacDeaths mother, Cerberus' mother did not survive the journey. When the kennel master entered the following day he found Cerberus had eaten nearly half of the body.

    Great stuff. Once again, you have me feeling nostalgic for the old days, because this is great, semi-old school style work and it is done beautifully. Well done.
