Here are 5 Chaos Knights, not armed with feared lances, but mediocre axes and swords. On the game they were doing what I expected, but the opposing Screamers were just too much, kill one and two new are spawned (some Tzeentch trick). In the end I managed to finish them, but that's all what they managed to done in the game.
The standard bearer was started and almost finished before the challenge, so he does not count for challenge points. In general I'm happy with them, but the shields are not what I expected. They got too messy, they looked better when half done, actually. :) Of course from the distance you don't see a thing, but it irritates me a bit. Anyway, they are finished now.
I used red glaze on some of the horses to give them more demonic, evil, Khorne look. Not bad, but not very visible either. I also decided to paint some black and some brown horses instead of all black, which is so familiar with Chaos Knights.
They are plastic horses with some metal parts and metal riders. Older GW models all.

Then something different, but Chaos as well. These are Odds or Ends, because they are all what I have of them and now they all are done. They are Broos from Glorantha. In other universes they might be called Beastmen, which is quite odd, because goats, sheeps and other farm animals are not very beasty to me...
I got them from a sale years ago just because I used to play RPGs in the Glorantha (RuneQuest at that time) as a teenager and I really liked to world. I have bought some newer books (HeroWars and later HeroQuest - not the boardgame) every now and then, because I just like the world.
I don't know much of these, they were in the box labeled "RuneQuest Broo Selection" and I they are manufactured by Mongoose. They are all metal and those shields were separate. They are not overly detailed, but there's enough to make them other than fur and cloth.
|Shields, unfortunaltely a bit flurry|
I should have probably used more colors on the clothes, now they look a bit too uniformed, I think. Or at least use yellow less and others more.
|This looks like a leader, the fanciest clothes and two swords|
Pointswise this is 4 mounted and 8 standing 25/28 miniatures, so a whopping 80 points!
ByronM: More old school GW stuff, is it just me or do they look so wrong mounted on ovals and rounds! Not anything to do with you Teemu, just feels to odd to not rank guys up for GW fantasy, just this grouchy old man talking though. The figures themselves look good, and I especially like the beastmen at the end of the post. They look like cool little scupts that have a lot of character. The overall picture of the army as well is nice, you have gotten a long way on it over the course of the challenge, congrats!
