Painted Blue Horrors

These are Blue Horrors, part of the Chaos Daemons faction I’m gradually working on for Warhammer 40K. I’m kind of doing these in the wrong order since one would normally start with Pink Horrors (which I don’t even own yet) then they split into two smaller, weaker Blue Horrors instead of dying. The Blues then split themselves into a pair of Brimstone Horrors upon their deaths. They can all be bought and fielded separately too so there is no need to always put Pink Horrors in the army list. I’m not really sure how best to use the Blue Horrors though. If I just want cheap body blockers and tarpits then Brimstones seem to be way to go, whereas Pink Horrors are the option if I actually want them to achieve anything.

Anyway, the Blue Horrors were pleasingly fast and simple to paint up to my satisfaction. The whole lot got painted blue all over (the clue is in the name, after all) then I picked out the weapons and jewellery in silver. I chose silver since it provided a nicer contrast to the skin than bronze. Finally I picked out the flames, tongues and teeth to brighten the lot of them up. I’m quite happy with the results, especially considering the amount of time expended on them.

Next on the painting table: Troll Axer.

    Nice blue horrors. 🙂 Yes, I know what you mean, I painted mine in the wrong order too. I started with the brimstones, then did the blues, and then I got distracted by Nurgle and never finished the pinks.

    • Thanks! I’m following in your footsteps here because the next thing on the docket for Chaos Daemons is a Nurgle box. I still have to assemble it first though…

        Nice! Looking forward to seeing said Nurglites when they are finished the digestion, etc. process.

  2. Ahh, the Blue Meanies 🙂 Very cool

    • Hmm, the Blue Horrors are described as grumpy and spiteful. Are they supposed to be a reference to traffic wardens? I’d never thought of that angle before.

  3. I’ve always been a fan of pink and blue horrors. There’s always been something playful but malicious about them. These look great too. I like the deep blue you’ve gone for.

    • Thank you! I really like the lore with the Horrors – for hordes of gibbering nameless baddies, GW has managed to really give them some personality.
