Tzeentch Army Commission

A quick look at a recent chaos army I painted

Well its the start of July and the miserable British weather is keeping my indoors and busy painting commissions and projects for GDUK2012.

I have just finished off a Tzeentch army commission for a tournament army and it was nice to do something different from W40K (although with the new rulebook release I can see me painting so many more armies and allies now)

The Tzeentch army was painted to a tabletop gaming standard only with a bit of extra freehand paid for as an extra.  The paint job consisted of mainly a blue black armour, dry-brushed with chainmail then washed with devlun mud and a glaze of hawk turquoise with a mix of dark sea blue and turquoise in various shades used to tie the whole army together.

 

Here are the colour recipes for the army

Armour:
Base – Chaos Black/Dark Sea Blue and 10% Chainmail Sprayed over the entire army
Highlight – Chainmail dry-brushed over as tabletop standard
Washed with Devlun Mud
Heavy Glaze of Hawk Turquoise to hint of blue throughout.

Golds
Based with Balthasar Gold (GW)
Then I layered over Gehennas Gold (GW)
Washed with Devlun Mud (GW)
Highlighted with Auric Armour Gold(GW)
Washed with Nuln Oil (GW)as client wanted a dirty gold.

Blues
Base of 50% Hawk Turquoise and 50% Dark Sea Blue
Layered over base mix with 70% Hawk Turquoise this time
Highlighted with pure Hawk Turquoise

Blue Flames
Base of 50% Hawk Turquoise and 50% Dark Sea Blue
Layered over base mix with 70% Hawk Turquoise this time
Highlighted with pure Hawk Turquoise
For the blue flamed edges I added Ice Blue (GW) to the mix and gradually increased to white.

Lava Bases (quick and easy method)
Spray paint the whole base Chaos Black
Paint the lava area Red Gore(GW)
When dry paint over with Heartfire(P3) Alternative GW could be golden yellow
Wash over a heavy dose of Casandora Yellow(GW) into the lava
Wait for it to dry and drybrush the rocky areas with Codex Grey (GW)

Some of my favourites of this army were the Tzeentch Chaos War Alter which was fully converted by the client using an old Mordenheim wolf figure.  I also enjoyed painting the Tzeentch Chaos Chosen warriors as they have so much character.

Here are some of the pictures – Again I still haven’t got the hang of taking pictures but I have just bought the new Miniature Mentor photography video so I might improve by next time (fingers crossed)
