With the colour scheme still not nailed down for my original Aspiring champion I was at a bit of a loss at what to do . . . .then digging through the cupboard of grey shame I come across this little plastic lump of old Skool goodness!
Yep an old Hero quest Chaos Warrior!!!!
I have no idea where this fella come from as I have never owned any of the original Hero Quest games and don't remember buying any Warhammer fantasy boxsets back in the day so maybe this fella is a gift from Tzeentch itself!!
Any who, how could he not be included in a 'Paths to Glory' warband?
Still unsure which way to go with my Aspiring Champion armour I tried out a GW technical paint called 'Soulstone blue'.
Found out it is VERY glossy and needed a wash of Nuln oil to calm things down.
Considering the crudeness of the sculpt and using new techniques I am happy with how he turned out (especially the banner).
He will start out as my Aspiring Champion and then will be relegated into a regular Chaos Warrior once I figure out what I am going to do with my original Aspiring Champion.
I also finished off a Direwolf (sorry Chaos Hound) for my Warband.
Only a basic paint job of zenith sprays and inkwashes but he is done and I am getting much better at being able to walk away from stuff once it has reached the appropriate level of paint job!
Looks fine considering the speed it was painted!
Looking forward to rolling up another couple of these in the future so they can get some table time.
And here is how the 'Heralds of Change' currently look.
Only 'Grundog the Shunned' to finish up!
Now the numbers
Miniatures painted / sold this year = 24
Miniatures bought 16 due to new Mordheim campaign, Riotville live! and Paths to Glory.
456 miniatures to go!
