More Angelic Goodness

Thought I'd throw a couple more pics up here real quick. The first 2 are pics of the lions that I used to represent Chaos Hounds. I am really stoked with them. First of all, my buddy Shawn gave me some great ideas on colors to use, and I think the pelts came out great. Secondly, I made a couple modifications myself from watching a show on lions, and those seemed to work. 3rd, these lions are metal, cheaper than GW white lions, and really allowed me to use the lion theme in this army, which blends really well with the angels.

Finally, we have a couple more pics of the big guy. You may notice a little bear metal on his head, this is from usage at the BoB, despite me spraying a protective coat on him. I will have to repair this soon. I am really happy with the overall look of this army, and proud to say it scored an 85/100 on appearance at the BoB. While the top armies are getting 95-100, that score did put me ahead of most armies, and for me, was a huge accomplishment. that is a huge score for me, and It was very gratifying after a TON of hard work. More pics to come.

Well, it's been a while. I apologize, but I think I can have a legitimate pass as I've been pretty busy. I was so busy getting this army ready for the Battle on Beale in Memphis, I had not spare time to even post on my blog. Every spare minute I had went into painting. The fact that I was working a summer job and getting married this summer [the weekend AFTER the BoB] meant spare minutes were tough to come by. Now I'm back from the honeymoon, and getting in the swing of things. I will try to get some army shots up, as well as a detailed BoB report in the next week to ten days. On to some pics...1st off we have the leader of the group. He's a Chaos lord of Tzeetch on Disc who is kitted out to bash big nastys' faces in. I love this model because of the dynamic pose, the huge wings, and the lion pelt he wears that ties him into one of the major army themes.

Next up is the War Alter. I am happy with how it turned out. I didn't have much time to work on it, as I started it the Saturday prior to the BoB. I used the carriage from the old Skaven Screaming Bell. I then added more green stuff to make the rat pelt look more like a lion pelt. On top I placed a Bret Sorceress modelled up to look like a statue. Originally the statue was a sweet stone color, but my brother wisely pointed out a gold statue tied this piece into the army much better. I added the Bret Grail Relequie peasent to give the model some more life. IN a perfect world with lots of time, I'd have added 2 more peasents and chains.

Finally we have 2 more characaters. The first is the BSB you've seen before. The second is the level 1 scroll caddy mounted on horse. I used the mid-level Vaulten model from the Storm of Chaos campaign from a few years back. Its a sweet model, and I regret not having another week or so to work on him, but it still turned out alright.
there you go, more pics to follow!
