This is the first batch of my Khazag Marauders - the Cult of the Celestial Dragon. I picture them as a gang of isolated monks, tainted by chaos, gradually turning their secluded life of self control and meditation into worship of the Celestial Dragon - who will represent one of the chaos powers (haven't decided which one yet).

These are some henchmen marauders:



The signs on the back in a close up (shiny gold star to the forumite who first can say what they mean, because they do actually mean something, and in a real language!):


More to come soonish.

VERY WELL DONE! The Monks look GREAT...a fine choice of color & the free-hand work is BEAUTIFUL! These may be the nicest mini you've done thus far. thumbsup

...but they will probably never see play. Ironic. Though my beastmen of Ind are still my own favourites.

I can identify. I have painted up several hundred minis that have only seen a gaming table as parts of other Folks games. For moi it's the modeling/painting that seems to be my thing these days, but one never knows. Suspect

Also very nice minis.

Don't give up hope, there are times you plax often and times where you don't.

Cuurently i also have also more painted warbands than "played" warbands.

I only plax them 3 to 5 games to change to the next band.

In this way we never finish a long term campaign

More stuff!

One of the champions! Having an eyepatch apparently can make you just a wee bit unsure where you put your enormous axe...

So, still no clues on what the writing means, eh? Remember that shiny gold star!

I finally painted the last seven minis of this warband this summer, and I'm planning to use them as a marauder unit in my Fantasy Battles Warriors of Chaos army.




The whole gang:


I've also painted some marauder horsemen, who will hopefully see some use in our ongoing BTB-campaign:

EXCELLENT WORK! These may very well be the finest pieces I seen you create. The color choices, bases, & the little touches like the beautiful job you did on the flames make for a TERRIFIC War Band. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

Thanks! I'm hoping that my pirate lasses will surpass these monks, but we'll see about that... I'm fairly pleased with the torches as well, but mostly I like the skin tone, which took a fair bit of experimenting before it looked right.

Nice paintjob, the fire effect on those torches looks great, well done!

Excellent painting job. I love the condemned and the flames of the last pics most.

Thx SerialMoM! The condemned was a good way to make use of some of the many saurus bits I have lying around...

Since so many have complemented the torches: here is the colour combo! Black basecoat, cover with bleached bone, heavy drybrush with a light yellow, then less with a regular clear yellow, then blazing orange, a light drybrush with a dark red, and finish off with a very light drybrush of chaos black on the top of the flames.
