Chaos + Chaos Knights: Part 1 Hobby Update
First a little background…
When the new Chaos Codex came out I was just happy to see a new Abaddon and some rehashed old units. I ended up taking Black Legion to an ITC local GT and did not do nearly as well as I did with my Death Guard Chaos army. Which is fine. I fully understood that I was taking an army I worked hard to paint and it has some weaker choices in it.
Prot’s Black Legion ITC Report: If you are curious you can take a peek at some of the experiences I had with that list: https://prot40k.wordpress.com/2019/06/07/black-legion-chaos-at-itc-day-1/
Fast forward and the Chaos Knights Codex came out. I will admit I wanted to make my Black Legion a little more competitive BUT I confess the codex was really a means for me to paint up my “Valiant Knight” as a “Tyrant” (Chaos) Knight. And here he is:
So there you go. I hope you like him. I did have a few goes at my own colour scheme and settled on the mostly neutral palette you see here. I have to say I had a blast using a lot of old school weathering techniques on him. It’s time consuming but I think it’s well worth it.
Next up: In part 2 I’ll go into a bit of detail on the list that’s been working really well for me in ITC competitive games. It came as a bit of a surprise to me but this guy is at the center of the list and gives you a lot of freedom. I’ll cover the list, and the strats I employ for maximizing this expensive unit.
May all of your Harpoons find the soft underbelly of a Tau Riptide near you! – Prot
