An awesome converted Daemons of Chaos Warhammer ArmyYou have to admire the commitment, effort and skill in putting together this army. Warhammer Armies don't come much more inventive or much better looking than this...
"...took me nearly a year just to figure out how to do it, and then about six months of work to actually execute. But the results exceeded even my expectations. "
"The Cult of Fire is a Daemons of Chaos army for Fantasy. Originally, it was going to be a mixed Daemon/Mortal army when Hordes of Chaos was still legit. Then the Daemon codex came out and split the two armies. At first, I thought the project was dead. But I managed to cobble together a fire theme from the new Daemons. The resulting army is pretty solid, gameplay-wise. I played it as a paper proxy army for a few months while they were under construction.
The fire spirits are Horrors of Tzeench (I call them Cinderkin), and the wizard is a Herald of Tzeench. The Warriors with the flaming skulls are being used as Plaguebearers for now, with the big crucible monster acting as a Herald of Nurgle. The burning Dire Wolves are Flesh Hounds, and the Horde Acolyths are Flamers (my buddy calls them the flaming jai-alai players). The fireball flinging wizard on a flying fire-steed is a Herald of Tzeench on a disk. That was a great Gamezone model with a good deal of conversion. But the big guy on the firebreathing bronze bull was the biggest challenge. He’s a Herald of Khorne on a Juggernaut, frankensteined out of about five different models.
The glowing hearts of the models were made from a keychain light mounted into the base. I sculpted all of the torsos, heads and other fiery bits, took a mold and cast them in clear resin. Then I assembled them around the LEDs and used paints and inks to give it the fiery colors. I ran fiber-optics into the eye sockets and as a trail of sparks behind some of the fireballs. This took me nearly a year just to figure out how to do it, and then about six months of work to actually execute. But the results exceeded even my expectations.
My next step is to make this army GW legal so I can take it to an official GT, so I’m probably going to do a big model when the new plastic Daemon Prince is released. "
