    Chaos Knights : Part one (Unit)

    Dreaded Chaos Knights, Lords of the Battle fields, Keepers of Chaos Sciences and blablabla... This mythic unit is the most powerful cavalry across every editions of Warhammer. It’s time for me to have my own unit … for my own God.
    I spend a lot of time to find this picture in my White Dwarf collection, a unit of ten marauders horsemen (knights) on battle field... Hard to manage for a Chaos opponent!
    This small pic is a real obsession for me since many years... Thank to Steve Casey, he have the good idea to publish the Bryan Ansell collection and now we have close up of a part of this marvelous unit.

    Oldhammer Day is the perfect excuse for me to realize my Chaos Knights project. No doubt, their best incarnations are the the 3rd edition range, three massive and aggressive steeds with pure Chaos armored Horsemen... They're for me the spirit of the 3rd ed Chaos army like the Champions of Jes Goodwin.

    I dont want a unit of Four, five or eight mounted warriors, I when ten !! With my own interpretation of (d6-4)+(1d4 ) Chaos attributes. Horns, weapon tails, tentacles, heavy Chaos bardage, chains, rivets, trophies, add weapons, bags, scabbards, Flags, personal banner,... As you can see I make a lot conversion with green stuff. I used many others metal part like Chaos champions torso, Chaos chariot Driver torso, Fiend of Slaanesh tails, Unicorn head, etc…

    Five weeks to paint this unit... Nice holidays works :) I hope meet a lot of people at Nottingham, Bye. 


    
    Finished at 80 %, I am very satisfied by the result.

    Rest : Bags, scabbards, shields and other mscellaneous.

    I love this Champion of Slaanesh, but with a Chaos Star and a JG Rune, he's better :)

    First colors test and bardages creations, the bones bardage is a tribute to Jes Goodwin
    and his bones armors.

    2. EXCELLENT !

      They are as chaotic as can be. Impossible to make them more evil than this seriously. I feel like looking at minis taken from the manga "berzerk" (for those who know it). I thought about Jes' bone armours looking at the picture just before reading your comment about it.
      What you've added truly respects the vibe of these beauties.

      All 4 thumbs up!

    9. Salut Nico,

      Excellent, ce sont parmi mes figs préférées avec leur aspect massif, c'est du lourd au premier sens du terme !!
      La conversion en plus, c'est ultime, j'espère que j'en verrais quelques uns sur le champ de bataille en août... :)

      A+ et bon courage

    10. They are totally AWSOME! I'm hoping to bring along a unit of 5 cavalry myself, and I was originally intending to do the works in terms of mutations but I'm not going to have time. So it's fantastic that you are doing this and I can wait to see (fight?!) them on the field of combat.

      1. I hope you find the time to paint your cavalry. Mutations are not easy to make, with a "realistic aspect".
        Bye.

    16. Hi Nico,

      You have so many nice comments, I will bring some critics ^^
      I think the knights are not the best choices, personnal taste, especially the ones with spears.
      I remember you have some with gladiators look which have more charisma !

      Cheers

    17. Hi finarfin, and thanks for your critic.
      You are right, All knights have not a very good style and that's why I add some champions footmen. But I have select horsemen I love, knights with lance have wonderful shoulders, and their lances augments height of the unit (Imagine the unit with banner and personnals banners). Paint have a great place in final result (Shields and Miscellaneous too.)
      For steeds, I needed to modeling differents faces and finaly with 3 models of steeds I have 8 or 9 differents heads. I have actualy in this unit 3x3 models and a model with unicorn heads.

      Thanks for your constructive critics :)
