A fun "little" project after the orcs.
This started as a way to make me like the Stormcasters. I had 3 or 4 of those free minis that GW sometimes gifts around and I wanted an excuse to paint gold.
In the end a friend suggested to instead use those bits to make a small band of Thunder Warriors, an unit I never heard off.A quick Google search and I liked the idea, so kitbash it was.
The recipe is simple, mostly stormcast bodies, old and space marine arms, cadian heads, orc hair (except one guy who has a demonette scalp, because I finished the orc heads) and a bit of sculpting to blend it together, plus a big fluffy mantle.
I received some comments on the wips, so here the answers.
What colors did you used?
Vallejo's gold, bronze and silver paints, agrax shade and Army Painter's speedpaints.
The weapons/the insignia are not lore accurate.
I don't care. That's what I had around.
Why don't you used/sculpted goggles, as in Blanche's illustrations?
I don't like the goggles. Too goofy for my taste. And I have no goggled heads.
The weapon choice is sub-optimal for a kill team.
Those are the bits I had.
