Painted Chaos in the Old World - Khorne

Last week, I was working on my SUPER AWESOME MYSTERY PROJECT (tm), which turned out to be painting up all the models from the board game Chaos in the Old World.  At the local store, we've been playing in a CitOW league as of late, and I thought it would be nice to have the figures nicely painted up for our games.  The figures are (very roughly) around 10mm in scale, and were done mostly with my detail brushes.  The entire project of five "armies" took about a week, and consisted of around sixty tiny models. 

For those who haven't played CitOW, the game (and Horned Rat expansion) is played by three to five players, although I suggest at least four, with each player representing Khorne, Tzeentch, Nurgle, Slaneesh, and the Horned Rat, respectively.  The game board is a map of Warhammer's Old World, and each god uses different strategies to kill its enemies, corrupt the citizenry, and dominate various regions such as The Empire, Bretonnia, and Tilea, as well as to stymie the efforts of opposing gods. 

Above, you can see my painted Khorne.  In terms of winning himself, Khorne has the most straightforward game play, needing to kill the other players' figures to really advance in the game.  A savvy Khorne player is necessary, however, as his role is key to slowing down Slaneesh early in the game and in slowing down Nurgle in the long term, as both can overwhelm the game if their figures are not killed in key locations. 

Anyway, I'll be posting up these five tiny new groups over the next week or so, and I hope you enjoy them!
