Slaves to Darkness Chaos Lord by Aft6776
For the creation of my Slaaneshi chaos warrior, I wanted him to look agile and to have weapons that contrasted the brutal armour. The cypher lords in my opinion have the most beautiful looking blades so I had to use them. The body and the head came from the snap fit Chaos Warriors sprue.
Slaves to Darkness Sorceror Lord by James Ashbey
This model is built around the dreadlord on Black Dragon, with the neck flipped down and the head swapped for a Karkadraks, with armour plating from the gorebeast chariot. For the sorcerer I used the Corpse Cart driver but kept the dreadlord legs. The base features hacked up pieces of a Realscourge Rapture and an attendant from the 40k Dark Apostle.
…and the winner is
Chaos Dwarf Daemonsmith by Thirteen Miniatures
The inspiration for the Daemonsmith on a Sundered Anvil came from the Dwarf Anvil of Doom on wheels from the 90s (one of my first and favourite miniatures). It made sense that Chaos Dwarves wouldn’t need wheels and honourable guards when they can get hobgoblins to do all the work.
Some Skaven bodies with some spare heads from Squig Hoppers and a bit of greenstuff made for my take on the haunced, man-sized hobgoblins, whilst the anvil itself is primarily green stuff. The beautiful forgeworld Daemonsmith, slightly reposed to stand commandingly on top.
