Evilhammer - MM90s and some Realm of chaos

Dear fellow hobbyists,

in the recent past I had the opportunity to buy a decent lot of MM90 chaos dwarfs. I always was a fan ot them and was happy to get most of them at once.

Some of them shown here:

I couldn`t wait to paint some of them and at the same time started to look for the missing models and Marauder shields. Now I miss only one of the lot (5d). Here is my first painted guy, completed today, base needs still some tufts.

Testmodel:

While searching the net for the missing MM90s I stumbled over really nice pictures of miniatures from that era and was so attracted that I had the idea of making a complete army, mixed with other Marauder models and Citadel Realms of Chaos. The later were among my first lead miniatures at all and it is nice to have some of them around again.
Some examples here:

I hope to get some feedback of you guys and hope to post some more painted models soon.

Nice find there as I also liked the Marauder range in pretty much every thing :)

The orange armour is nice and bright and good to see you are going with bright colours for these.

Best of luck with the project and I will be checking back on it over the coming weeks.

Very nice work. Some really cool models to look forward to as well. Out of curiosity what are you using as the background? I find it strangely fitting for the subject matter as it could be a map of the Chaos wastes. Anyhow, keep 'em coming.

Thank you! The background is the inside of a 40k roleplaying book from Fantasy Flight Games from the Dark Heresy 1st Edition RPG (I think they all have the same space sector map on the inside of the cover). So it is from a SF setting, but I liked the red gray color and the map design is not so dominant that it overwhelms the models.

Re: Evilhammer - MM90s and some Realm of chaos

Thank you, that is a great compliment :-).

I am going to post only with new content (be it pictures or text) so here are the two next models. One champion of Nurgle and one chaos warrior, which I dedicated to the Blood God.
I like this miniatures so much, even if sometimes the proportions seem a little "false".
It is like the Japanese art principle "Wabi-Sabi" (Perfection in Imperfection). I try to translate: "It nourishes which is authentic and holds three simple truths: Nothing stays forever, nothing is ever finished and nothing is perfect. Limit everything to the essential, but do not remove the poetic. Hold everything clean and without burden, but take care to not make it sterile."

I hope I delivered the message. For me this is true with a lot of these old models, especially for the MM90s. Maybe this is why I like them so much.
