The finished Chaos Sorcerer with Custom Decals


I finished the Chaos Sorcerer that was the center of my experiments with the custom decals that you can find here
I found this model in a sale bin for 5.95. Too bad, since it is an exquisite model that can truly give you the creeps. I don't even play Chaos but I had to do something with this one.
The only problem was the barding of the horse which looked just like a normal old style bretonnian horse and that didn't seem too Chaos to me. So with green stuff I added bits of skin and bone to the barding to make it look more scary.

Here are the pictures:


the back

here are 2 side shots


Here's the added green stuff

I worked on the base a bit, this is what it looked like unprimed

here it is painted, also a good shot of the skin flaps on the barding

For me this is my new way of modeling. I find a model that looks great and I will lovingly spend hours on it. I don't really know what to do with it now, so maybe it will become a gift..

  1. Nice job on this one.

    Good choice on adding more "effects" to the otherwise plain armour on the horse.

  3. really nice work. Love the banner and the conversion.

    There is a mold line on the raised leg of the horse though, it's highlighted by the gray paint (drybrushed?)

  4. ouch. I see that mold line there...I didn't see that before. It's funny how bad models can look when you photograph them up close.
    Next time I will do better and thanks for the vigilance. I am striving for better and aiming higher with my models so this is well taken
