The start of something Evil...

Mwhahahahahahaha... The time known as Christ Mass has been good to me and my minions have been sent scurrying to fetch me a force to assemble over the next few months

So what did I get?

Magma cannon
Hellshrieker rocket launcher 
3 Daemonsmiths
20 Skaven to convert to Hobgoblins via the piles of plastic in the little bags
15 Fenrisian wolves to make Hobgoblin riders (it specifically says in Tamurkhan they ride GIANT wolves)

These will be used as an add on force to my Warriors army until I get more units to make up a whole Chaos Dwarf force

As much as I like the models for CD I nearly didn't go with them as there wasn't enough conversion opportunities for them until I realized GW don't make Hobgoblins! A quick search on the net showed up the idea of using Skaven bodies with goblin heads so viola... or some other stringed instrument...

The question now is will I get the Dragon Ogres painted up before starting on these.  Any answers on a postcard should be no...

Dragon ogres complete

Well hello again it's been a while...

I have finally settled where i'm going to be for a while and have a permanent place to paint and model again it's time to get back on track!

I've finished putting together the dragon ogres and so far they've only been foiled by an ethereal black coach smiting all else in their path with great weapons.  It was especially funny to see them kill off 3 units of ogres!  I originally armed them with ogre weapons but didn't like it as they looked to ogrey so I found the plastic chaos knights weapons I never used as they were too big and stupid but perfect for my dragon ogres.

I went to more effort to mutate these as they are "true" creatures of chaos so while they're meant to be a stable(ish) breed for chaos it's still chaos...  Took a lot of patience and green stuff but i'm pleased

Ramble over here they are.  I must say matt black isn't very matt any more...

I couldn't resist giving one a dragonish head.  He also has a tentacle for an arm I haven't bothered showing

I tired making this one looking like it had another body bursting out but sadly my sculpting skills aren't that impressive so i'll have to see what I can do with paint (no laughing at the back)

Hello! TWAT!...  Scratch built great flail.  Think i'm also gonna give this guy a helmet

4 arms are great for holding more weapons! And ladies love a big tongue. Apparently...

Once I've got these painted and my maticore done i'm starting a new project.  Here's a teaser.  Can you guess what it is yet?

Hopefully next post will be sooner than the others!
