Vacation time is over

As the Tzeentch Daemon army comes close to 2,000 points, I look back at the other project army I began a few months ago: The Pride of the Emperor (counts-as Blood Angels dual Land Raider army).  For now, though, the Tzeentch army is almost complete.

As you can imagine, remaking a 2,000 point army can be a little time consuming.  The Horror heads were shaped using the drum Pink Horror model and sculpting flames from Sculpey, then casting 29 models from resin to form the troop core.  Roughly half the Flamer of Tzeentch models were also resin cast, forming 18 models to make up the Elite options.

Finally, I created chariots using plasticard, chains, and some bases I have sitting around.  All of model bases were sculpted and cast using resin as well.  The Soul Grinders are... well... Soul Grinders.  Really nothing special about that!

Overall the army is pretty much complete.  There are a few touch-ups which could be done here and there, but for the most part the army is ready to display and maybe even play.  I now have my fluffy mono-god Tzeentch Daemon army.  It's taken me a couple months to complete, but I am ecstatic with the results.

That brings me to my previous project put on hold, though.  I put this army to the side due to frustration in painting the vehicles, and I'm not sure I've solved the problems I was having.  I'm hoping a few tutorials on tank painting might help me to discover where I'm going wrong and what I can do to get them to match the troops.

Hopefully next week I'll be able to start the Las Cannon- Plasma gun scratch build tutorial.  Till then, take care and thanks for following along on my journey!


  1. looks fantastic, really good job!

  2. Thank you Atreides! They were a lot of fun to plan and completing the army in a short period of time barely felt like work at all.
