So even before the dust had settled on the (ahem!) extravaganza that was Riotville LIVE!!, Lano, Lee, Anthony and I had talked each other into playing a 'Path to Glory' campaign as published in White Dwarf 275.
Being the proud owner of a (mostly) completed set of Silver Tower I went for Tzeentch although I can never pronounce it properly (!), Lano for Khorne, Lee for Slaanesh and Anthony for Nurgle.
With the four powers represented we rolled on the followers table and I ended up with the following;
Aspiring Champion (on barded steed),
3 Chaos Warriors,
1 Chaos Hound
and a Pink Horror.
Tonight I set out what I've got. . . .
Apart from the Chaos Lord they are all miniatures from the Cupboard of grey shame.
I love the look of the Chaos warriors and such as they are so O.T.T. they appeal to my 'kid growing up on heavy metal album covers' sensibilities!
But the lower level stuff like Marauders are just a bit well . . . . . pants!

Thankfully the artwork in the Warriors of Chaos book is brill and I spotted this picutre. . . .

. . . . . especially these fellas tucked away in the corner . . . . .
Now that's more like it!!!
I am really into converting Ogres at the moment so the Ogre will be getting some Green stuff work done. The Darkoath Champion from the Silver Tower set will do the job for my first marauder but the rest will probably go through some converting.
I am thinking of going the full 'Diceman' with this and rolling up completely EVERYTHING on the die apart from the actual tactics in the battle.
I have already found an old ROC name table and rolled up the name 'Daoz Daemonstrength' for my aspiring champion.
