As I was going through and continuing to repair the damage wrought onto my blog by Photobucket (yep, I’m still plenty bitter!) I found this post – one of my earliest. My seventh, in fact. The models here have by now all been shown again in some form or another – the Iron Warriors especially having been one of the armies I’ve refocused on for 8th edition – finally completing these models and more. This post being more than seven years old shows how long a road its been to get them up and running on the table and they’ve now had a couple of games as I relearn 40k.
The Nurgle guys were promoted into the “leadership team” for my Nurgle Lost and the Damned Cult back in 2015 – and now I need to go fix up that series of posts very soon.
The Slaaneshi model is probably the most tragic of the lot here – he’s never seen the table despite being converted around 2nd-3rd edition and painted sometime before I posted the original here – around 2009. I do plan to build at least a small Emperor’s Children force in the near-mid term, so it’s in the cards for him at least.

These figures are various Warhammer 40k Chaos types, to be used as various champions in 40k, if I ever get around to playing it again. All are conversions, and mounted on the same range of scenic resin bases from Back to Base-ix that the Orc in the first post is on.
These figures were mostly finished during my previous foray back into painting miniatures, around the middle of last year. They were started.. a long time ago.
Slaaneshi/Emperor’s Children Champion. Converted years ago for me by Dave M. The base is a Kharn the Betrayer body, with a 2nd-gen Daemonette claw (the only thing that range of daemonettes were good for, in my opinion), a head from same and a Chaos Terminator weapon, which looked similar enough…
