The Malignancy of Malal: A Pantheon of Chaos WIP of a 'Malal Beast'



I saw this when I got home and I just had to share it for all those bloggers who don't frequent Facebook. The Pantheon of Chaos boys are at it again and they have only gone as far as sculpting the suspected 'Beast of Malal' creature.

If you don't recall the image, have a look below, and cast your mind back a couple of years when I worked with Anthony Ackland to recreate the daemonic pantheon of Malal. A number of other websites have now jumped in on this piece of research and are displaying the creatures on their webpages and wikis, but the original article can be found here. 



Of course, what those lesser websites don't state is that the Malal pantheon we presented is more conjecture than fact, but nevertheless it gives interested parties something to work with. The famous 'Beast' drawing under discussion was published in the the Lost and the Damned as part of the 'independent daemons' section, and never officially tied to Malal.  

Diego Serrate shared a few snaps of this startling sculpt today and, fingers crossed, we will see some of the other creatures from those old concepts created in putty in the not too near future. When, oh when will this kickstart!!!!?


Further information about the Pantheon of Chaos can be found on Facebook. Just follow this link!

  2. Hello Chaos followers!
    Thanks again Orlygg for being there giving support to our work!

    As you ask , the kickstarter will come in about a couple months, with the whole ruleset and all!
    So you can start building up your warband , champion , retinue , etc as soon as they PDF
    with the rules show up during the campaign , and the miniatures will come not so much after that.
    We will have ALL the range sculpted , only having to wait for the production and shipping process.
    And yes , we plan to get into the others as well , being probably the Greater demon of Malal or "Malign" the next one to be sculpted.

    1. I for one cannot wait for this! Expect to see detailed coverage of this project here at Realm of Chaos 80s - that is if Diego gets himself in gear and sends me all the lovely photos of the goodies we will be painting up!

  3. That's really good sculpting, looks like a render. Suitably nasty looking creature too, very reminiscent of the ROC artwork.

    1. It is based on a RoC piece of art Will - in fact, you can see the image that inspired the model in The Lost and the Damned!!

  5. Hi Orlygg
    Malal's legions may finally see the light of day. Coincidentally I just mentioned Malal (and a couple of links to this site) over at my blog: http://torvatenebris.blogspot.co.uk/2016/01/so-what-about-these-dark-gods-then-some.html

  6. That's a really nice sculpt, much better than the stuff GW is producing these days; the state of their new dwarf (sorry, "Fireslayer") range ia abysmal!
