Greetings Terrans, how goes it? More Chaotic Warband shenanigans today – after a long dose of Nurgle, we’re going back to my first warband, that of my Tzeentchian Champion, Scynir the Architect.
I haven’t done much with this warband since September last year, but I knew I had all the Tzeentch mooks from Silver Tower to add. I got them all based, primed and ready to paint last autumn, so I figured now would be a good time to work through them as part of my drive to paint what I’ve already got.
I’m very much an ‘eat your vegetables first’ kinda guy, so I started with the twelve Kairic Acolytes that I had prepared. Eight of these are from the Silver Tower set, (made up of four sets duplicate minis), and the other four are from a pair of ‘Eyes of the Nine’ Underworlds warbands, (so two sets of duplicates). I made a point of converting half of each pair to hopefully make for a more diverse group.
Here they are in pairs, starting with the Silver Tower dudes:
And here are the extra four from the Underworlds warband:
I didn’t hugely enjoy painting these guys – I wanted the flesh tone to be an unnatural blueish white, which kinda works I think, but it hasn’t turned out quite as well as I has hoped. That said, I think the real reason I didn’t enjoy these is the helmets. They are too fussy for my taste, and I’ve really struggled to make them the focal point of the model. Still, I’m not loosing any sleep over these at all – they are done, they look fine & that is good enough for me.
Here is a final pic with Scynir the Architect, Champion of Tzeentch:
I think they work pretty nicely together :-)
That’s all for this post, next up will be a small herd (flock?) of Tzaangor
