Tiny chaos based constructs with mischievous intentions the mixed Horrors of Tzeentch conjure magical flames to blaze their enemies. These diminutive daemons bound across the the battlefield and onto the blog today where I’ll share my photos of my Blue and Brimestone Horrors, have a look at their rules and share my paint recipes.
The unique thing about Blue Horrors is the fact a pair of Blue Horrors are spawned when a Pink Horror dies. A base of Brimestone Horrors consisting of two flame like sprites is spawned when a Blue Horror is slain. The Blue Horrors box set of models is awesome. You get a total of 20 models (10 Blue and 10 Brimstone Horrors)
In games of Age of Sigmar, the Blue Horrors are part of a warscroll called Horrors of Tzeentch (mixed) and costs 215pts for 10 models. You can actually have pink, blue and brimstone models in this unit if you wish from the start. You can also choose wether you want the Split and Split Again rule or a different rule called Petty Vengeance. Petty Vengeance gives you a roll each time a model in the unit is slain, the D6 roll required depends on the kind of horror, pass the Petty Vengeance test and you inflict a mortal wound on an enemy within 1″. I think I’ll keep my Blue Horrors off the table and Split my Pink Horrors into Blues when they suffer damage.
Pink, Blue and Brimstone Horrors all share the same rules, they all move 5″, have a single wound, bravery 10 and a save of 6. The difference between the Horrors is the number Attacks for their Magical Flames and Taloned Hands. Magical Flames isn’t particularly accurate at 5+ to hit but you get a lot of attacks. Blue Horrors get 2 shots each and 1 melee attack, whereas Brimstone Horrors get only 1 shot and 2 melee attacks each.
Painting the Blue Horrors and Brimstone Horrors was really fun. I airbrushed the Blue Horrors with Temple Guard Blue and gave them a wash of Druchii Violet, this purple shade makes them pop and the blue highlights really stand out. Another nice touch I liked was painting the tongues as fire to represent a Brimstone Horror trying to get out. Overall, I’m extremely happy with how the unit came out.
Above is my recipe card for both the Blue Horrors and Brimstone Horrors. It’s pretty straight forward. Where you see + it means to mix the two paints listed, as for the ratio it’s really down to personal preference. For instance if you want to glaze multiple layers slowly you’ll want a to mix in more Contrast Medium to make it thinner and more translucent. If you want to do it in a single coat you’ll use less Contrast Medium (if any at all). Remember, this is a recipe card and not a full tutorial. It’s information at a glance to help remind me how to paint more Horrors in the future. Speaking more Horrors, use this link to see my post including recipe card of Pink Horrors.
