So I finally waded my way through the 20 strong mutant troop choice for my Brotherhood army the paint job is not my best and found finishing these guys a bit of struggle for some reason but they are done and look ok on the table.
These are GW plastic cultists with lots of added chaos bits mostly from the plastic chaos spawn set but with a few other odds and ends found in my bits box. Armed for close combat this unit is a big cannon fodder/bullet shield but on the off chance they actually reach the enemy the mutant Boss has a power fist.
It occurred to me as I was writing another Brotherhood of Spite post that if you aren’t a gamer of a certain age you might not actually know who the chaos god Malal/Malice actually is so here is a quick link for those who want to know
Long written out of GW canon here is a picture of his most infamous Champion Kaleb Daark
Like a lot of the armies in this project my Brotherhood of Spite army has been a stop start project stretching over a couple of years (one of the reasons I started this blog was to try and force me to finish stuff) as a result I have some miniatures that are finished, some half finished and some nothing more than un-glued metal and plastic.
In the case of this army I painted all the fun heavy support first so I’ll share that today. One of the things I wanted with this army was a different take on the chaos army theme less traitor guardsmen and spiky Leman Russ tanks and more gribbly beasts and mutants.
So first up a Giant Spined Chaos Beast the original model from forge World can be seen here (Chaos beast) and the rules I have in found in one of the 4th edition imperial armour books. My version is actually from Mierce Miniatures and can be seen here (Tarask). I’ve changed the triceratops like bony plate on the front of the model with a single bighorn and painted it in Malal colours of white and black. I realise I should have added a normal man sized miniature to the photos for scale but this is a big model its on a 120mm circler base. More heavy support in the form of chaos spawn up next
