I'm working my way toward a Tzeentch army, and while I'm starting a Fatesworn Warband (it's hard to turn down Start Collecting savings), I want to fill out some of my slots with Kairic Acolytes and eventually have enough Acolytes and Tzaangor for a more Arcanite-Heavy force centered on the Cult of the Transient Form. Yes, I know the Battalion is hot garbage in a competitive context; I just like the theme since it emphasizes my favorite aspect of Tzeentch, and I want to let that guide my army building and painting and maybe do some narrative play with it as well. My question is this- looking at the MPPK Kairic Acolytes, they all seem like they have normal human feet, with none of the bird talons the Acolytes in Silver Tower had. Is that correct? Second, has anyone tried swapping the Discs used by Tzaangor Shaman and Skyfires/Enlightened? And if so, are they a relatively close fit, or are we talking about nonsense like feet molded into the surface of the Disc or other details that would be difficult to work with? I want to run more than one, and if this is feasible (I'm not exactly handy with the knife or saw) it's the easiest way to add some variety.
Hey guys, I'm looking to make up a Bloodbowl team with the Kairic Acolytes and thinking of putting Fyreslayer heads on them but I can't see from photos if they are of similar scale. Does anyone have by chance one of each model and be good enough to post a photo of the two stood next to eachother?
Like the rest of the Age of Sigmar community I was really enthused and excited by the new Disciples of Tzzeentch Battletome. I was lucky enough to get hold of some of the Kairic Acolytes which I painted up for my new force. A couple of things that I think are worth noting - the basing plans are to tie in with the rest of my Chaos force rather than having their own unique basing scheme. I'd love to have done a desert themed basing scheme for them as they have a really cool egyptian style look to them. The kit is great - you can make the models up pretty quick and they go together beautifully as you would expect. I used a really simple skin recipe of mourning brown spray, sandro dust spray and a wash of sepia or Reikland flesh shade. It gives quite a nice dark, sun kissed type of skin tone. As these are supposed to be quick I have really focussed on not going back in and adding extra detailing to the skin. I will try to spend the time on the characters and monsters in the list. The shields I kept separate so that I could quickly airbrush on the fade and get them done quickly. I find my airbrush to be a very fickle beast, but when it works it is a real time saver for this kind of effect Once the skin was all done the detailing was finished and kept simple. I used a lot of bright blues combined with purples and whites. As you can probably imagine the biggest time sink on these models is doing the gold trim. There is absolutely no way that these can be speed painted. you have to take care to keep it neat. I have seen on the Warhammer TV that Duncan does the gold first and then paints in the panels, and I can see how that would work, but at the moment I'd rather keep the gold as the final stage.
For my Tzeentch force I need some foot troops. The cheapest battle line in the warriors army are Chaos Marauders at only 60 points for 10 models. However there are a couple of problems. Firstly, the models are really old, very poorly posed and they have a whole load of annoying mould lines. Secondly they are very much of the Old World frozen north aesthetic with the cloaks and beards. All the new Tzeentch models have a very different feel to them. So what is the solution? Clearly to do a ridiculous amount of conversion work on foot troops no one will pay any attention too! I decided that the basis of the conversion would be a box of Kairic Acolytes. I also had 15 of the silver tower Acolytes which add some variation. The heads were taken from all the blood reavers that I had left over from the starter set that I haven't done anything with. I chose all the ones with helmets as I decided these guys would be trying to emulate the Acolytes by hiding their faces, but without the magic they had to settle for the normal versions. When I ran out of heads I started raising my bits box and was able to use some Maruader heads as well as taking a gamble that Space Marine heads would also look OK. Weapons and shields came from the Tzangor kit as well as the Marauder kit. Sticking everything together was pretty easy, but if you want to do this conversion then the neck needs some work as the acolyte heads kind of fit on the front. If you try and stick a normal head on then it looks down at the feet, so the neck area has to be cut and trimmed down, but its not overly complicated. Painting was the usual Tzeentch base coat of brown, and all the armour this time is blue. As ever edging all the gold is the really time consuming stuff, but I have got 10 done so far out of the 30 that i need. As always let me know what you think in the comments below.
