The Knight Train

Hello all! :) Raze and Ruin has now been and gone! I would love to tell you about all my victories, and about how my Warriors of Chaos stormed across the table, but really they were pretty solidly crushed in four of five games and I came a mighty 35 of 43. However, it wasn't all doom and gloom as I got a pretty impressive second place in the battle for best painted. Given that all 43 armies were fully painted, and there were some proper stunners there, I will take second place as my victory! Maybe first next year! :)

I have to say that having people take the time to look closely at my army and make comments on it was one of the coolest things that has ever happened to me. It's probably comparable to hearing people say nice things about you at your own funeral!

I am currently making painfully slow progress on a Chaos Chariot, so this post will focus on the remaining five knights I did for my huge block of Chaos Knights. I really like the models - they have so much character in each one, they are just a horror to rank up! I'm still really enjoying working on the Warriors of Chaos models, so I think I'll keep it up until I get tired of doing them. I've definitely enjoyed taking a much needed break from painting this month - I've not actually finished painting a single model - but I am keen to get right back into the flow of it :)

Anyway, onto the pictures! (Of the second best painted army at Raze and Ruin 2014 :P)

The five new knights.
The flesh covered shield is definitely my favourite of the lot.
Of course, as any Fantasy player knows, the real stars of any cavalry unit are the horses!
The full train of 10 knights and a Lord on Daemonic Mount. This is the only way the unit ranks up!
The Lord definitely makes a good centrepiece for the unit.
Definitely one of the cooler shields in the unit.
They would never have ranked up without the cavalry bases in between them!
That's all for now! :) Next post should showcase my chariot :)

Thanks for reading!


  1. That is a lovely group of chaos warriors. Individually they look good, but as a unit, they look spectacular. Very well done,and congrats on 2nd place!
