I am currently painting 2 chaos warriors and 2 chaos knights so I can pop those in the competition.  I started them the last week of march but the start was just getting them off of their bases and getting the paint cleaned off and then getting them undercoated.  I will post a few pictures of how it is going tonight.

Here are a couple pics, all glued down a bit to be painted and before any undercoating and another of the first brass detail painted.  I undercoated black, based them all in leadbelcher then nuln oil shade and another dry brush of leadbelcher to bring it back up.

second pic is just a bit closer to show the brass detail getting under way, that was on the first of april so the hard stuff wasn't started until this month at least  :)

Brass is confusing to me.  Esp. as GW changed all their metallics!

I have the new Hashut Copper which I think replaces the Dwarf Bronze I used on most of my Chaos - but they have a new duller colour called Balthasar Gold and ALSO Warplock Bronze and Screaming Bell etc. etc.

GW metalics are confusing.  I have only just now started changing over to their paints and it took me a few minutes to pick out what I wanted for their brass/copper/other metal details.  GW metallic paint did not run as much as the "copper" paint I had though so I like it.  I needed theirs to finish as my TESTORS paint basically ran out.  I cant even think of the name of the GW paint I bought.  :/

My GW retailer just revamped their paint lineup as well and has doubled their selection so that is also why I am just now changing over to them.  I think the new Games Workshop is doing well!

I have more details painted and should have all of my models back on their bases sometime this weekend.

finished with details and got them back on their bases.  looking back at it, I should have probably just bought 2 new knights if not at least 1 new unit because as it turns out one of the flags basically broke off during cleaning and the other one looks kind of squatty, like it was pushed straight down.  all of the horse legs are squished to one side.  But they are all painted and now you can barely pick them out or see any of the flaws.

It took a bit to get started but once the receipe fell into place they took 3 weeks. Lot of hours. Glad you like them. Pity they wouldn't cast up.

[ENTRY]
I don't think I can take a picture of my mini's to save my life.......  :\

I really am proud of myself, the way these turned out and they round out my chaos army very well.
