Even More Metal Clad Maniacs


The last of my old school Chaos Marauders had their turn to get finished this week. This 10 takes me up to 25 which is a little more than I planned and with the two standard bearers that are needing pushing over the finishing line, that'll give me 27. Terrible planning on my part.




The nice thing is that they are all different sculpts. I haven't bothered trying to identify the sculptors of all these evil nut jobs but I imagine that Aly Morrison was involved in a fair few as well as Jes Goodwin and probably the Perry's on a couple.


A couple of the figures are rescue jobs including Metalmane in the middle here. They needed weapons replacing for the most part. Some naughty 12 year old of the past needs a good telling off!.


This bloke in the middle appears the wielding either a crossbow or an Anchor. I went for crossbow. He's also one of three variants of this figure that in the unit. Can you spot the other two?


And here are the whole crew. The idea isn't to field them as one big unit but it's nice to know that I could if I wished. They would normally be used in 12's for both WFB, Dragon Rampant and AoS. Giving me a couple of spares for characters if I wish.


And here they are ranked up as if they were an WFB unit. I'll probably make a unit tray for them to make life easier when it comes to moving them around. Next up is....Well I suppose I should finish off the Blight Kings but the Knights are tempting me.

  8. I like how yours turned out Whiskey. The colour variation is not jarring, as it sometimes can be with too many colours. Might have something to do with the wash technique you use? I should just pull my finger out and get mine done too.

    Cheers :)

  9. You really have a knock for making units and forces like this look coherent despite them being made up of individuals. Your RT pirates are like that too, its great.

    Im looking forward to seeing these in hand later this year.

  10. These are wonderful. A ragtag bunch of nutters, but still a visibly coherent force. Sweet banner too. It helps that these are some of my favourite minis of all time too. I just love chaos thugs.

  11. Im inspired by your rescues. I have a few in the old pile that could make it back to the table. Foolish youths....

  12. Cool stuff. I like the use of colours on the armour: not too jarring but very Realm of Chaos. That guy holding his sword over his head with a face on his breastplate is one of the classic models of Warhammer for me!
