SHOWCASE: Chaos Chariot of Tzeentch

Hot on the heels of my Chaos Warriors is my Chaos Chariot. It’s a fantastic model and at the time of release, it really was a harbinger for the newer, chunkier style of Chaos that we’ve seen with the recent The End Times and Age of Sigmar kits.

I painted the Chariot and War Steeds’ armour in the same way as the shields from my Chaos Warrior unit. The larger areas meant I could get some really nice blending on the highlights. I use several drybrushes then glazes of Vallejo Field Blue over GW Cantor Blue to build up the intensity. Edge highlights are done by adding white and Vallejo Dead Flesh to Field Blue. Based on this, I’m thinking of painting the Chaos Warshrine soon – what do think? Let me know in the comments.

As kits go this was particularly fiddly due to all the thin components. I painted the War Steeds and Charioteers separately to the chariot and added the reins at the very end (accompanied by much cursing!). The result was worth it though – simultaneously brutal and intricate

I magnetised the Charioteer so that I can replace him with other characters from my army. I used a classic Warrior of Chaos head to visually link him back to my other unit. Zenithal highlighting techniques were used to add depth to the armour with glazes of Drakenhof Nightshade in the recesses. Given the angular style of the miniature this resulted in an almost cell-shaded look.
