Maximilian McAllistei – Chaos lord from the Warzone

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Alright, this is not a new model, but I never got around to snapping any pictures of him, and since I hadn’t tried out my Foldio lightbox yet, this was a golden opportunity!

Maximilian McAllistei is my Warhammer 40´000 Chaos space marine lord for my Legion of Discord army. He rides around on his daemonic horse and flames things, ideally.

The model is more or less completely scratch built from different kits and I made him as a tribute to the Mutant Chronicles/Warzone Venusian Marshal pictured below, since they’re awesome. The passive, menacing look just tickles me the right way.

Back when I first started to build the model, Warzone was an old, mostly forgotten, miniature game with old ugly sculpts, so doing something like this really felt like a fun way to honor it – So it was with equal bits of despair and joy I found out there were going to be a Warzone kickstarter to reboot the game. On the plus side, it’s great. I mean, I love the universe. On the downside it sort of punctured my inspiration for my chaos army, since the theme was pretty much a Bauhaus Venusian Rangers color sheme (bone white and blues) mixed with spikes and demons. At the moment, I’m not sure where I’ll go with my chaos army, but for now I think it’ll have to take a bit of hiatus. I have other models to paint anyways!

The models main components are a Warhammer Fantasy Daemonic steed, a chaos space marine with a chaos tank commander helmet, Chaos Possessed bits, a mechanical legs and a flamer made out of a bolter, a piano wire and Chaos tank sprue demonic head. The cloak and hood was green stuffed. Not pictured is an axe and a sword and some other weapons that’ve been magnetized so that it can go on the side of the horse. Because I like magnets.

And for those interested, gamewise he mostly rolls around as such:

Chaos Lord

  • Veterans of the long war
  • Mark of Slaanesh
  • Steed of Slaanesh
  • Burning Brand of Skalathrax
  • Sigil fo corruption
  • Lightning claw (Not pictured.. maybe they’re retractable!)

So he comes in from nowhere and flames people, and then generally gets shot down.

Can’t see the forest because it’s really just one tree

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

In most games, you have area terrain – “A forest” consisting of only one or two trees.

So, with the left-over Zuzzy mat and some old CD’s, I made myself some area terrain.

Also, a try-out/sneak preview of how the mat will look with snow.

 

Huzzah!
