I want your skulls, I need your skulls
First of all, I have to say that it's a colossal honour to be invited to this small event, and knowing the other guys' spectacular work, I know that I'll have to give it my best shot. That said, I played hard to get for a while, so I am lagging behind a bit, and I yet have to hammer out a masterplan for my warband. It's also been years since I built my last model for WFB, which adds to the challenge.
But I have some preliminary kitbashes to share with you, at least. Most of these are still rather WIP and may be subject to change.
This guy was actually bought quite a while ago, since I wanted to use his arms and heads for a different project. The original plan was to turn him into an officer for my World Eaters army, but that plan never really moved beyond the blue tack phase, so this project seemed like the perfect occasion to revisit the model. While I am a big fan of the classic Khornate "bunny ears", I think the simpler helmet design really adds a sense of blunt menace and brutality. At the moment, I am still thinking about whether or not I should replace the sword with a Bloodletter Helblade...

The Fourth Horseman
As a long time follower of the Lord of Skulls - Kraut has a legendary World Eater army sporting a number of impressive conversions - his inclusion was a no-brainer.

Chaos consume us
Time for our next Path to Glory special feature - this time focusing on Alexanders eclectic and downright bizarre warband devoted to She who Thirsts:
Hi, I'm Alexander, the third member of our coven and sworn hierophant of Slaanesh.
With my warband I want to explore the more extreme aspects of the Dark Princess (yes, to me Slaanesh is female). The God's Hand have travelled far down the path that are the circles of Slaanesh Inferno. They keep no slaves, every torture and sensation are reserved for themselves.
This was my first warrior, before I knew what this project was about. He is a ritualistic torturer and flesheater. The conversion combine parts from electro-priests, cultists and daemons.
I really struggled at first when it came to the Stormcast miniature. What to do with it. In the end I turned him to chaos. He is the unreasonable fury of jealousy. In his hand he carries the head of his lover, well aware that she will just grow a new body to keep tormenting him.
My lieutenant, chaos should be strange and take odd turns. I was very much inspired by Kingdom Death when it came to this conversion. The parts are from the empire, high elf and dark eldar ranges.
Since we are inspired by the classic Realm of Chaos books I decided to add a more nonsensical miniature, the fallen king.
For heavier hitters I rolled up a troupe of Hellstriders. As an other nod to older editions I included a centaur.
This has proven to be a lot of fun. My warriors just need to be painted and based. Then I have a few more Hellstriders to complete, some more sculpting on my giant conversion and my chaos lord.
Till next time,

The Fat and the Furious
Saturday, January 09, 2016
As readers of this blog probably are aware of by now, me Alexander and Erik AKA Nordic are planning a Path to Glory campaign using the new rules for AoS. (Rules which can by downloaded from GWs site for a measly 4 quid).
So far you've only seen my nurgly stuff, but that's about to change (pun intended) as I have the honour of featuring both my co-conspirarators warbands here on the convertorum. First up is master sculptor Nordic and his amazing warband dedicated to the Architect of Fate:
Hi! Nordic here.
I chose The Architect of Fate as my deity because I felt Tzeentch is a rather unrepresented but very interesting god. Being the convertion nutter I am I will have ample opportunities to create lots of mutations and weird gribblies. I am starting my warband from scratch, so it will be an intense time ahead to get everything done in just about three months!
Champion: Kithelon of the Aether, Chaos Lord (Rewards: Warpcraft and Arcane Vessel)
Warband:1 Tzeentch sorcerer lord, Feldrek Flameborn 5 chaos knights 3 chaos trolls 10 ungors
Crown of fingers mutation for one of the coming knights.
Birdfaced ungor made from a clanrat with feathers from dark eldar scourges and legs from a daemonette. sword from vampire counts skeletons.
Ungor with head from corpsecart and helm from VC skeletons.
Another birdfaced ungor with sculpted face on the shield.
Goblin made from horrors with grot head and hobbit goblin arm and a clanrat cleaver
A goblin made from a hobbit goblin with grot face, flagellant mace and the foot is from the chaos warshrine ogre.
I will make five more count as ungors.
Just to show something painted. here is a color test on a base.That's the start of my warband. Now I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of new bits so I can start working on my knights!Thank you Nordic for this insight into your process. We'll soom be back with Alexanders warband dedicated to the Prince of Pleasure. Stay tuned!
