Love Painting Pink Horror Skin and Burning Chariot WIP - 'Oh, the Horror!' Day 5

Oh, the Horror! week is wrapping up. I wanted to get some last posts up showing painting progress on my Herald of Tzeentch riding the Burning Chariot and show off the painting steps for Pink Horror skin. I will create a tutorial once this is complete. This piece is very important to me because it marks the 47th model I have painted this year. I only completed 46 models in all of 2016 and beating that number in April of 2017 fills me with pride. I have Squaduary to thank for a lot of that. Also, the shot in the arm from Kaptain Von speaking about arm's reach painting.

Horrors of Tzeentch - 25 years of evolution - Oh, the Horror! Day 3

Steve here, In today's post about Horrors, I want to look at how the rules for Horrors have evolved over the last 25+ years. I love going back through the rules to find where these models were in the minds of the developers in the past and to see how things have changed over time.

Horrors drew up a minor uproar when the new split mechanic with Brimstone Horrors came about last year. This does not seem to have been too much of an issue. How did we get there? Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

Blue Horrors of Tzeentch Oh, the Horror! Day 2: Petty Automatons

Pink Horrors are the Lesser Daemons of Tzeentch. They are described as gleeful, and sing and dance as they make their way up the battlefield. They will kill you, but will do so with a happy demeanor. These creatures are tough to completely kill - when they are finally destroyed, they split into two halves, which shape themselves into smaller Blue Horrors. Unlike the Pink Horrors, Blue Horrors of Tzeentch are vindictive, vengeful, and petty.

Please have a look at a completed set of 14 Blue Horrors after the jump for Oh, the Horror! Day 2.

Pink Horrors of Tzeentch Oh, the Horror! Day 1: Happy Automatons

Steve here, and I have been looking forward to this moment. This is the first day of a group of Horror-themed posts that should carry through for the week or so. I call it - Oh, the Horror!

This is day 1 of this set of posts, the completion of a group of 10 pink horrors!

Future days will include blue horrors and the new brimstone horrors, as well as painting guides for each.

I will also be tracking the history of the horror and look at their rule changes over time to get a feel for what horrors truly are in the world of Warhammer 40k.

So, please enjoy a week of horror at Fortress Erioch!

That is an amazing value. while writing this, I have had to keep control of my exclamation points. It reminds me of a Seinfeld episode. You know the one.

How far have you read into the Horus Heresy? I love the books, and am currently collecting the hardbacks. A slow process. This keeps the story going in the mean time.
