Here are some shots of my Chaos Cultists for my WHFB Warriors of Chaos army. These guys represent chaos marauders. I’ve never been into the body-building-metal-viking-guy look, so I wanted to come up with a different way to handle this unit. I also like the idea that many of Slanneshi followers come from cults around the warhammer world.
I used the Empire Flagellents kit to base these models on. The bare heads from the marauder horse, with some flayed skin masks made from greenstuff adds the gory character I wanted this unit to have – I like my chaos to be creepy. The flails are somewhat customized as well to fit the look I am going for when this unit is done, which the GW flails don’t usually capture.

The flail cords are made from steel wire twisted with a power drill. I wanted to have more dynamic poses for these weapons than I felt the models originally came with.
This model will become the unit champion. Hand weapon and shield will be his equipment to help him stand out from the guys with flails.
This is the unit’s musician. I forgot to cut out an area in his mask for his mouth to show, I will have to do that so the notion that he has a war-horn isn’t too weird.
Next steps… Heads on the flails, cord positioning, greenstuff gap-filling, flash trimming, some further details here and there.
