That’s stunning stuff I am really glad you got these pictures up, there’s inspiration there for everyone. I’m rather taken with the war blimp - I would love to see one of those done up with Goblin slaves leaning over the sides with primitive grenades to throw down at people. :hat off
Great work, I like what you’ve done - the War Blimp is obviously great, but I also like your painting style on the standards, particularly the Chaos Warriors. It just gives a nice effect, at least I think it does.
I particularly like that you went with a bit of an iconic theme of cogs for your army, great way to keep everything tied in together!
The blimp is certainly a favorite among my friends. Though how I didn’t think of including primitive grenades in this army, I don’t know!
@Zanko: The construction of the blimp is a little bit arts-and-crafty! It’s a coke can with a polystyrene cone at one end and sphere at the other. That was wrapped in a thinnish layer of milliput, and the fabric/skin ‘sowing’ marks were put it. Then it was just a case of building it up with plasti-card. The carriage is just plasti-card. The lava is green stuff. Seriously, surprisingly easy. I’d love to see what some of the more talented modellers on this forum could do with the idea of a blimp.
Great stuff, the color scheme is nice and muted, very chaosy!!! What rules did you use for the blimp? I like that you included Ogres with the beards in your units, nice GS work… the masks are great, good variety - I especially like the blunderbuss masks!
I just used the taurus rules. It’s a large scary flyer, it has a flame cannon at the front and the two warriors at the front with great weapons account for the taurus attacks. All worked out pretty well really.

Ah! good thinking! hmmm.... yup, I see flying dwarfs with dropping grenades and flame attacks in my near future! lol
very cool army, everything looks great but Id have to say my favorite FAVORITE has gotta be the slave cavalry, I never thought of having a centaur slave unit a very cool and unique idea. chaos dwarf sorcerers and their evil experiments on slaves and wolves, I like it. my next fav is the technomancer.
It’s not really a shame they’re going on ebay. I get to move on to the next project and someone else gets to enjoy them. Being a modeller more than a gamer can lead to armies piling up on shelves, gathering dust and generally being criminally ignored!
