Chaos Daemons - Flamers of Tzeentch, Chaos Spawn and a Poxbringer

Hello all, thanks for dropping by. My (Siph's) final batch of additions to the hordes of Chaos Daemons I have amassed is a squad of Flamers of Tzeentch, some Chaos Spawn and a Nurgle Poxbringer. These complete this year's offerings to our soon departed Liege Lord of Painting, Duncan. All Hail!

Flamers of Tzeentch
The Flamers were a bargain on eBay, I liked the rock bases so I bought at a bargain and repainted them and added 32mm base adaptors to increase the size of the base.
The teeth were picked out in Ushabti Bone and contrast painted with Skeleton Horde. The flames were painted with the same colour palette as my Plasma, Baharroth Blue, Temple Guard Blue and Sotek Green and the bodies washed Leviathan Purple wash over a blue basecoat.
These used to be really effective on the battlefield of 7th, but I am yet to get an 8th Edition Daemons Codex so it will be a pleasant treat finding out how and what in my growing Daemon force is effective, but at this stage I will field all of it to make 2000pts and cheap small units cannot hurt if trying to get a Brigade Detachment for the ample supply of Command Points.
I couldn't save the slate so I had to repaint over it as it was covered with a gloss goo.
So, a cheap small fast unit of potential death-bringing wreathing enemies with eldritch Flickering Flames! A nice addition to the horde of Chaos I have amassed - must go buy that Chaos Daemons Codex now!

Chaos Spawn
Now, not strictly a Daemon addition, as these are found in the Chaos Space Marine Codex and I will field alongside my Daemons with a CSM Daemon Prince as the HQ and these as the Outrider Detachment.
Four were painted as Nurgle affiliated Spawn and two as Khorne. I picked these up also on eBay, repainted them especially as the original paint job had green Khorne spawn - that just wouldn't do, so I kept the purple spikes and claws and repainted everything else and the bases.
These two Nurgle Chaos Spawn had the bone and horn areas painted with Ushabti Bone and Skeleton Horde contrast, the horns having darker browns as a base, the darker horn being toward the older tips; the bodies a mix of Deathguard green, Loren Forest, Catachan Green and Nurgling Green finished with Agrax Earthshade. The bases my usual colours but a few grey rocks left to add contrast and detail. Tentacles got a liberal coat of Nurgle's Rot technical paint to look like ooze and pus after the matt varnish to remain glossy.
These Khorne Chaos Spawn were completely repainted too, save the purple claws which I added a wash to, and some Blood for the Blood God, obviously! The spikes on the crab claws again Skeleton Horde over Karak Stone.
The final two Nurgle Chaos Spawn followed the recipe for the first two, with the eyes picked out, given slit pupils and finished off with 'Ardcoat gloss after the matt varnish to look wet. I also added Nurgle's Rot technical paint over any tentacles.

Poxbringer of Nurgle
The Poxbringer is a Psyker for the Nurgle Daemons, and a cheap HQ slot Character, up to now I only had Greater Daemons for my Nurgle Daemons, in the form of a Great Unclean One so this addition is a great addition to ensure I can bring along a dual Battalion or a Brigade for lots of CPs.
The Poxbringer was a bargain eBay job too, this time a decent paintjob which I added too and didn't totally do again. I repainted some of the gory innards and torn fleshy areas, however the Deathguard Green skin areas and the Nurgling were great job so they remained. Only half painting points for this Character.
I picked  out the boils and gave them 'whiteheads', the torn flesh coats of Blood for the Blood God and some Screamer Pink and Pink Horror and even a little Averland Sunset as the subcutaneous fat layer. The organs were picked out and the entrails given 'Ardcoat to look wet.
The Balesword was a grey basecoat but with a metallic drybrush of Leadblecher and a wash of Nihilakh Oxide technical paint for the verdigris look. Plus a little Blood for the Blood God after the varnish.
There you go, some great offerings to the Dark Gods just before the year's end! Next year I am going to start out on some well deserved big items that have been languishing in the to-do pile for too long and of course, work on a Titan ahead of June's Titan Owners Club Walk UK... no promises - my track record is 3.5yrs for a Titan!

Have a great New Year's and see you all in 2020 for more WeeMen hobbies and fun!

Cheers, Siph, Lord Halfpenny and the elusive 6thDegree.
(20 points - 3 troops, 6 large based, 5pts part Character)


  1. Awesome, I've a Nurgle's Rotters Blood Bowl team to do, I like the way you've done the spilled guts, I might do some like that too.

    1. Thanks mate, yes BftBG is a great way to finish guts to look bloody and wet.

  2. Great work chap!
    I'm guessing in 8th Daemons aren't what they used to be because I hardly see them these days on any of the blogs I read, so it's good to see some.

    Happy New Year to you and may Slaanesh grant you her number in the coming year ;-)

    1. Thanks mate, yeah it seems that way, CC armies suffer under the gun lines of 8th. Must get some more Smite spam...

  3. Great work! I think Daemons are struggling at the moment in 8th edition, but they do look like a really fun army to work on, such a distinctive style.

    1. Thanks Mike, yeah a totally different look from my Power Armour Greys! I like the randomness of colours and looks of units. I will be adding more and then a big WHW Daemon incursion I think.

  4. Looking great! Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks mate, happy new year too! May it be filled with more WeeMen!


For the Emperor! (and other Xenos welcome...)
