Tzeentchian Chaos Sorceror WIP

Ahh yes...sidetracked again...ahaha! I came across an old aquisition from the past. Its basically just the body of the Ahriman miniature, minus the head, staff and backpack. I got the body cheap from a mini shop in Perth many years ago. I think I paid only 5 bucks for it.

Anyways, I looked at the poor mini with some compassion and decided it was time to spruce it up. I modified a head from the Chaos Space Marine tactical squad. Got a back pack from the Chaos Possessed sprue and some Tzzentch icons from the Chaos vehicle sprue. I think he turned out ok. At least he's got some semblance of a sorceror once again :)

He's still a work in progress. And I'm in the process of putting down the base colors. Some parts like the white front robe is mostly done. The helmet faceplate is also complete, but not the horns.

I had forgotten to take some raw conversion pics, so this WIP pic would have to do. The top half of the staff is made from a plastic toothpick. I plan to paint the staff pinkish and bluish to make it seem more eldritch and shifting in colors. I gave the mini a base coat of Regal Blue. Then I added increasing amounts of Enchanted Blue to it for layers and highlights.
For the back/outer robes, I added Hawk Turquoise to the mix of Regal Blue and Enchanted Blue. Then added the new Ceramite White base to the previous mix for highlights.
Side view. Not too clear here as the horn areas are still unpainted.
The Sorceror accompanied by some Tzeentch-themed Terminators I painted a year ago.

Painting up this mini has tempted me to start a Chaos Tzeentch army, but I WILL resist the lure of Chaos!
But even now the whispers grow stronger. I shall complete this mini with the aid of purity seals, heheh!

Have a great week ahead all!

Hope everyone is doing well thus far into the new year. Stay positive, and always keep the flame of hope burnin'. Change will surely come ;)



    You cannot resist the change!

  2. Lol! I think he will achieve Daemonhood before the year's end :P
