To celebrate this feat, I've eventually gotten all of the models out that I painted for the challenge (whilst the family were out) and photographed them all together (some task - as was writing this post) and then taken a photo for each of the individual groups too. So here we go:
|All 19 possibilities for creating a retinue for my Chaos Warbands|
|There's minotaurs, orcs, a chaos sorcerer, mercenaries.|
|A Shaggoth, Nurgle Beastmen, brigands, harpies, a troll and some (generic) Beastmen.|
|Some Elves, Chaos Warriors, Goblins.|
|Centaurs, Chaos Dwarves, Skaven and Human Runaways.|
|Ogres and Cultists.|
In case you are unfamiliar with the Retinue Table (quite obviously my favourite aspect of the whole Realm of Chaos project), here is the table from which you can roll up your Chaos Champions followers:
And here's each of my interpretations of the text:
1. 2D4 Human Mercenaries and Captain.
3. D4 Minotaurs.
4. Dragon Ogre Shaggoth
|Orcs were my original collection as a young teenager and I re-visited some of my favourite models to warband together. I knew these would eventually be part of an allied force so I went with a command and a couple of lackeys for now.|
|A nice little collection of disparate models, a chaos hound has joined some traditional beastmen models and a Marauder minotaur has been re-purposed as a leader. He needed some zebra stripes too.|
19. D6 Beastmen of the Patron God (Nurgle obviously)
Thanks for reading! Oh and I'm intrigued - what's your favourite?
