|Adding some Green stuff to I-KORE celts and Classic Citadel Chaos Thugette|
|HotT demoness blades stand. One slap of paint later...|
So I have been messing around with a succubus infested Hordes of The Things Army as you may well know, and I have just wrapped up my first stand to try out the look. After spending some time staring at it, I will then know if I want to go ahead and make a whole army to match.
I don't usually use flock on my bases, as I find its a dust trap and looks tired quickly, but for HotT I liked the idea of little dioramas making up an army.
Now the figure to the right is a Chaos Thug (aka chaos Marauder) from the 1980's Realm of Chaos era. As you can see from the picture of the green stuff sculpt, I gave her a more feminine look by building up her lips, adding a John Blance-esque bow and extended her hair to hide the eye patch. I also sculpted on a skull onto her shoulder guard to give her another focal point. For this conversion I did not to trim back the metal, so the model is unharmed by the process. Later I can peel off the green stuff and restore her. I do this to quite a few of my citadel classics if I need them for, say, an AD&D game.
|Hordes of the Things! One of Blue Moons zombie boxed sets|
I had doubts buying the boxed set- the packaging is so garish and cheap and the sample paint jobs do not really do the figures justice. I was very pleased when I got them out. The integral bases are soft and clip away easily, they assemble in interesting ways, and I had the whole lot put together in one night. I only had to do a little filling, and was happy with the results. Since then I have picked up a lot more blue moon figures- their villagers are very handy! I hope some day they shift to slotted bases and better packaging art one day though. Clashing bright Red on Blue- uhg.
|Reaper Bone Caller, Blue Moon Zombies|
I am tempted, since I am putting a bit of effort into making a HotT army, to perhaps sculpt a few succubus chaosettes for my Bederken range! Semi-Naked demon girls... what's not to like?
A couple of stands made up of Hasslefree Kalee's converted would do great things to the eyeballs too.
