With all the Space Wolves and Tyranids running about at the moment, it's easy to forget about another release that's coming out this month - the Chaos Hellcannon, which will soon be available to order in Citadel Finecast (check back later today for more details).
To celebrate the arrival of the most bad tempered war machine in Warhammer, we decided to have a day of blog posts dedicated to the Warriors of Chaos. Here are a few of our favourite heroes of Chaos that we've had sent in to us:
This Chaos Exalted Hero was painted by Gatewayst (probably not their real name, but then you never can tell with the followers of Chaos...). The clean highlighting on the black armour combined with the rusted, blood-covered axes make for a great-looking miniature. Check out the smooth blending on the horns and the cape. The blue tint on the skin stapled to his shield is also a little bit creepy.
Ah, Prince Sigvald, the best-looking chap in the Chaos Wastes. Matt Sterbenz painted this rendition of the Geld-Prince which we thought was just insanely good. If you're looking at the shield in awe then make sure you check out the rest of the model too - cast your gaze over Sigvald's shin and you'll notice that his loincloth is reflected on his armour, and on his shoulder you can see the reflection of his hair. Much like Sigvald himself, you can now enjoy the Scion of Slaanesh in all his gorgeous glory.
The Khorne Lord on Juggernaught and the Chaos Sorcerer were painted by Will Dorling and Thilo Engels respectively. Models like the Juggernaught are an excellent place to try out a bit of freehand artwork as there are plenty of large flat panels to work on. In Will's case he has painted on thin lines of lava to represent the thick hide of the Juggernaught cracking under the intense heat of the Daemon within.
Meanwhile, Thilo has decided to paint his Sorcerer using non-metallic metals, a great way to paint a character within an army to make them stand out. The purple robes also complement the golden armour really well and the occasional patches of red (like the eye on the staff) make perfect spot colours.
