Inspirational Painted Chaos Army by Edward George Gladdis Part 2

No sooner do I publish a little article about the work of Edward George Gladdis than he posts more lovely models on the Facebook group. So I am going to have to do a second post to have a closer look at his chaos cavalry. As you will have noted in the picture above, these models follow the now familiar scheme of colour we discussed earlier with a little variation created with different coloured tassels. I like this idea and its a useful one for anyone trying to produce a lot of models for a unit in s small amount of time. 

Again all the models here are preslotta chaos warriors and the spectacular command model (with the mutated mouth) is one of those mid '80s mounted chaos warriors that came with a foot version. You can see Edward's painted version of this model in the previous post of his work. Of note here are the shields Edward has used to finish off these models. They are the rare metal ones produced by Citadel before the adoption of the plastic sprues that came in the later '80s. They are very collectible and can be quite pricy, especially the ones with the sculpted faces. For more information about this range look here

Okay, lets have a closer look at each of the models.

Well, I hoped that was as inspirational for you as it was for me. Considering that I have a bunch of (albeit later) chaos knights on the work bench in front of me, these images couldn't have come at a more useful time. With three weeks to go to the Oldhammer Weekend (BOYL) and holidays commencing there is plenty of time for me to get stuck into the lead pile and get some lovely models of my own completed.

  1. It looks like the chaos warrior with purple head helmet decoration is the one in the background of the WFBIII cover, even the same shield
