Cult of Khaine Warhammer Army Blog

This blog is dedicated to my Dark Elf Warhammer army - The Cult of Khaine.

I have been collecting and painting models for the past couple of years in particular the games workshop warhammer dark elves. These are my favourite minatures out of their range and over the time I have amassed a rather large army. I thought it would be a good idea to blog my development of the army as It evolves to keep a record of my ideas and to showcase the models when I finish them. I will be posting various images, comments and links as I go and would love to hear any comments you have.

Malekith on Black Chariot Conversion

Hello All,

here is another timely update to my blog. I have just finished converting and painting Malekith on a Black Chariot with a Black Guard body guard. I converted it using a variety of bits - I hope you like! Apologies for the quality of the pics struggling with my camera at the moment :-(

As always would appreciate any comments.

I think he looks great! The use of the newer Cold Ones is nice, they look menacing.

The banner is by far my favourite piece. The flaming dragon is great! Nice work.

Really nice CoK,

I prefer less gold usually but in this case it fits very nicely with the other colours.

Well done,

I really like this! I' currently getting the HE lion chariot to convert for the black chariot. I like the adaptation of the wings to add a nice terrible menace!!

The banner is fantastic. Do you free hand your banners? I would love to hear more about your technique!

i love the base of this model, and i also like how you used 3 coldones.

This looks really awesome, I have one thing bugging me though what sort of wings did you use to make the wheel arches I'm guessing the inner ones are dark pegasus wings but the outer ones have me foxed?

Hi Steve - thanks for the comment.

Milton Bradley released a board game a few years back called "Hero Quest" there was a model of a gargoyle in the set - I used the plastic wings from this set. Yes I also used the wings from the dark pegasus - they work really well for the sides of the chariot.

Steve said...

Ah that makes sense now, I remember my brother in law had hero quest.

I think your Dark c
Charriot is the nicest ive seen, it's probably the best artistic interpretation of a dark charriot I have come across, I tip my hat to your genius

hey great conversion. if i may ask, what did you use for the lower half of malekith?

Hi Andrew, I used the lower half of a spare executioner I had kicking about. Both of them were metal parts, once cut down and with a bit of green stuff they seemed to work well.
