Prot’s Black Legion for 8th Edition
Here we go…. and this is way overdue but it’s a HUUGE image dump. It’s time for some Black Legion. I finished these guys quite a while ago but just needed some time to post this up. I think Chaos is deceptively time consuming to paint . Let’s have a look at what I’ve done so far.
I did a red (Warlord) and blue Lord Discordant just to differentiate between the roles of the two HQ’s. These guys are a ton of fun with any Daemon Engine units. Speaking of…
Goats heads? Check. Horned skulls on a stick? Check. Skulls on fire? Check.
Don’t let their bathrobes fool you, these guys are dirty. I use them to support all forms of Daemon unit in the Black Legion and they make a lot of sense with their unique Maelific Psychic powers. The tactical depth you can get into with these guys warrants their own article to be honest. I differentiate the ‘buffs’ with the blue psyker, and the offensive buffs with the red psyker.
I finished both of these squads with the intent of taking them to a tournament. I confess they’re a lot more work than I thought they’d be. I think there’s a tendency to think ‘black’ figures are a breeze to paint and while they can be, I think you need the extra effort to make them pop off the table and not blend into the background of a table.
The Havocs are another amazing new sculpt by Games Workshop.
Below is some in progress shots of the army. (Nearly finished in most cases)
I hope this has made up for some of the gaps in my updates. This has been a ton of work and it continues.
I hope to have some shots of Abaddon coming soon.
Thanks so much for checking in the blog. Until next time……
