Chaos Warband (Talisman 3rd Edition minis)

I'm creating a Chaos warband for Age of Sigmar: Skirmish

*ahem*

...using the minis from Talisman 3rd Edition (1994).

So far I have a Minotaur/Bullgor (right), a Chaos Warrior (left) and a Warrior/"Darkoath Chieftain" (centre). I'm going for a very light Slaaneshi theme (i.e. pink/purple/black colour scheme, but no major mutations):

There's five more members of the band to go: a Chaos Marauder, a Chaos Dwarf, a Skaven Clanrat, a Beastman/Gor and a Chaos Sorcerer Lord.

I haven't finished the bases yet, but I wanted to get a picture up sooner rather than later.

More to follow.

Some lovely painting but think you could have gone full K.I.S.S on the warriors warpaint !!! Will look forward to seeing the rest of the warband painted up.

I was thinking precisely the same thing. It's Kissssssss! :D Well done! Even if there is some small ambiguity which bit of glam rock is depicted. ;-)

(Hey, there's an dea! Each member of the warband is from a different rockband! Kiss, Gwar, Def Leopard, Whatever blows your amp!)

It's actually supposed to be Abbath from Immortal:

By the way, I started experimenting with the bases today -- started out on the Minotaur here:

Image

I wanted something that looked fairly generic and "stony" as I plan to mostly game on a kind of rocky, dusty, desert wasteland... this is a combination of black washes and drybrushes in various shades of grey. It looks all right, I think, but I'm not sure if it's what I'll settle with.

Okay. No ambiguity at all. Had I been less mortal I might have known Abbath. The reference is quite clear. Very well done! Just . . . I live in a glam-rock closet. :">

Anyway . . . the base (or should I say bass?) came out well. Though maybe Mr. Minuettaur is big enough to need a double bass. If he want's to stand up, as it were.

Anyway anyway . . . puns aside . . . he looks pretty! Lovely and well done.
