I finished the painting today:

Image

Lower body is from a Chaos Cultist, upper body is from Tomb Kings and the head and arm from the Dryad sets, meld points are greenstuff as is the vine wrapping around the skeletal arm.

I really didn't expect to get two things in this month, I'm kinda surprised at getting that all done with a two-year-old running around.

Post those pics Iggy! You can't let Xand just be all alone with entries.

So I got mine finished, its a bit late in the month, but my excuse is I had to paint my first ever rhino as well as a full squad of 10 raptors which had priority.

Image


I actually made 14 more custom cultists, some of which might be even better than this guy, but I need more glue for them so I can do their bases, I doubt I'll be able to get them all based in time for mini of the month.

P.S. If you want to know what bits where used, the legs and body are obviously cadian shocktroops, with the body having some carving on it. The sword is from the old OOP metal chaos knights, the pistol is from the new raptor kit, the head is a greatsword head with a scar carved into its right eye. The spikes are cut from a useless arch in the chaos vehicle sprue and the skull on the right shoulder is from an empire handgunner/crossbowmen kit upon which I did some heavy carving ti get it to fit into the shoulder pad.

The base is just some slate pieces glued to a base and painted by roughly following Dark Cresents base painting guide.

I'm not going to count it, but I just picked up a comission to put a rising zombie "companion" on the base of a Typhus I'm working on... But it's not a full model (you don't see the lower half), so I'm not really going to count this one.

Whelp, I know it might not exactly fit the theme, but it sort of does, so here is my 2nd entry:

Image

Image

I call them The Companions of the Word.

Sent to hunt down the traitor Sally, the veterans of the Onaroth 378th pursued Sally to the backwater planet Gerbold VII, when they arrived there, not only did they find Sally, but they also found the truth. The truth turned out to be more than they bargained for. Those that survived have now joined Sally and the cult leader as the Companions of the Word, ready to set their lives on the line, FOR CHAOS!!!

This an unpainted entry, I will try my best to get them all painted up and sexy by weeks end, if I can't do it I'd like them entered unpainted. If its disqualified for not fitting the theme closely enough I'll understand.

Great looking Cultists/Traitor Guard. I really like the one with the skull breastplate. Concentrate on getting them painted up, only painted entries will count. We'll let the people decide in the voting if they fit the theme, I figure they do in a broad sense.

Whelp it took me a bit of work, but I got all of them painted up, to an okish standard, not really my best work, but acceptable and they look good from a couple of feet away!

I tried to get some pictures that showed all of them, I tried some tiny freehand on the shoulder pads here and there, their faces are a bit reddish for my taste, but nothing that cant be touched up later. I hope people will like this entry.

So much going on in that squad Arnathos! Ka-wow!

Also, xand, the level of detail on your conversions for that army are unbelievable, especially considering you have a little warrior of chaos running around the house.
