my realms of chaos, path to glory started a little while after reading PDH's Realms of Chaos thread
i badgered somebody to lend me the ancient tomes and created a champion and retinue for each god.
to give me a bit more flavour to work with i gave them each two god specific rewards and 2 attributes along with 2 rolls on the retinue table each.
first up is my champion of Slaanesh.
i rolled a human wizard but have since changed him to a dark elf wizard so he fits in with my khornate champion a bit more.
equipment happened, flail, mace, light armour
he obviously got mark of slaanesh
two slaanesh rewards- Horns of slaanesh and hermaphrodite
two attributes- mane of hair and CHAOS LORD!
this led to 4 more attributes, cloven hooves, evil eye, vivid skin and prehensile tail
got some stat increases as well as an extra magic level, and a daemon sword
his sword contains a lesser daemon with bulging eyes, massive intellect, breathe fire, long nose, goat face and 4 arms
retinue rolls including chaos lord extras gave a total of 13 wolves, 3 dark elves and 2 minotaurs
I had decided before rolling that i was going to stick to the results no matter how uber or sub par they were unless fluff dictated a small change, i did consider scrapping him as this guy is going to be a powerhouse but i did all the rolls, thats a lot of dice!
although concerned about him wiping the floor with any other warbands i decided to stick with him, i guess its just the beauty of the random
this is yet another early concept with too much blutac but am after opinions on a possible donor for his tail? have decided his mace will now be a slaanesh rune wielded by his tail so keep that in mind
my khorne champion didnt roll chaos lord :(
Dark elf hero with 2 swords and a crossbow
mark of khorne
khorne rewards were aggression bonus and frenzy
attributes were strong and elastic limbs
retinue 9 humans, 7 beastmen and 3 ogres
having recently received a second winged vampire lord for a mounted version of the vampire knight above this guy got started on, he was the one i was least inspired by and yet he was the first guy i started modelling, the legs were just sitting there as were two humongous swords...... in a flash of inspiration i just stuck him together and liked it, he reminded me of the description of a powerful commander from a book i read a while back and so Argastos took miniature form.
anybody who has read the right book will know that Argastos has more than a bit of moth in him and so am considering giving him some moth wings, any ideas for a donor model?
with the themes of the book coming back to me the worminess of the slaanesh champion kicked my brain and so an extra torso was added and their back story became one of kin strife.
favoured first born is a warrior of note, rising to command the families army and generally being popular/awesome. the weak younger brother becomes a mediocre wizard and resents his brother. years of this lead to the overlooked brother making friends with the daemon sword and eventually selling his soul to slaanesh summoning daemons and other followers of chaos to teach his family a thing or two, after they are all murdered he sets off for the realms of chaos and his search for daemonhood. when argastos returns he goes mad with revenge, praying to anyone who would listen for the power to destroy his brother and all his followers. up steps khorne and now the moth chases the worm. hopefully one day it will get written properly but for now it will do
