Chaos...the BIG and the small...Part 3

I've finally had some time to crank out few more of these Chaos Warriors for Hashut's Lil Helper (HlH).

This was an interesting had its challenges but I'm pretty happy with the results.

First up was good old two swords here...

The blue armor on this guy was achieved by using my standard Gun Metal-to-Silver sequence and then washing with a mixture of Badab Black (GW wash) and an ancient bottle of citadel blue ink that I've had since I was 15 or so...:)  This guys horns aren't textured like the ones on his corresponding MM90 so I had to fake it.

Here are the detail shots

Next up was one of my favorite MM90/CWs...

The MM90 that HlH sent along as the inspiration for the GW had flat black armor...which actually works pretty well on the dwarf...on the human it would have been too much I opted for a similar feel with really dark metallic armor...and increased the amount of copper pieces to break it up a little.  I love the way his mace came out.

...Our next Victim...

This guys armor was also achieved with a wash over silver this case Reaper Green Wash with some Badab black mixed in.  Its a darker green than the MM90's but I was unable to achieve a closer match.  I may need to look for the Metal Medium that G2 mentioned in an earlier comment (cheers mate!) if I want to do colored metals again in the future.

More Chaosy goodness...coming soon!
