Word was spreading in the Old World of plunder and death of apocalyptic proportions. Survivors of former cities now sought refuge within the capitals of the Empire and spoke of hordes of savages bearing the heraldry of the Blue Serpent. Meanwhile, Morgoth's hordes only grew larger as followers of the chaos gods were drawn to the strength of his army and the potential to wreak havoc on the kingdoms of men. Packs of beasts of all shapes and sizes were drawn to the din of battle ...
I decided to have a little extra fun during this last month of the challenge. BEASTS! And what could be more beasty than some minotaurs ripping apart a puny Empire foot soldier. These models were really fun to paint and accentuate the theme I was trying to go for in my army: raw but uncontrolled strength. After all, isn't that what a Chaos army is all about?
|3 minotaurs with additional hand weapons (132pts)|
|Beastmaster (15pts, light armor +2pts and shield +1pt) with 4 hounds (92pts) = 107pts|
From my math, the final points value of the army is ... *drumroll* ... 1549 points. Not bad for 6 months of work. Overlord, I need a bit of a break though before our next challenge.
Next (and last), an army shot with all the models completed in this challenge and some reflections *cue classical music*
