Gibbering and cackling incantations the Pink Horrors conjure warp flames to hurl and immolate the enemies of Tzeentch. These gleeful daemons bound across the the battlefield and onto the blog today where I’ll share my photos of my Pink Horrors, have a look at their rules and share my paint recipes.

The unique thing about Pink Horrors is their ability to become two Blue Horrors when they take damage. These Pink Horrors came as part of the Start Collecting Disciples of Tzeentch starter set and it’s one of the best Start Collecting sets if you want an instant Warcry warband. However, there is one big problem, it doesn’t include any Blue Horrors in the set, you have to buy those separately. The Vanguard: Disciples of Tzeentch set does away with both Pink and Blue Horrors and has Kairic Acolytes and Tzaangors instead.

In games of Age of Sigmar, the Pink Horrors warscroll is called Horrors of Tzeentch (mixed) and costs 215pts for 10 models. you can actually have blue and brimstone models int 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″.

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. Pink Horrors get 3 shots each.

Painting the Pink Horrors was really fun. I airbrushed the models with Emperor’s Children and gave them a wash of Doomfire Magenta thinned with Contrast Medium, this really increases the vibrancy and makes them pop. Another nice touch I liked was painting the tongues blue to represent a Blue Horror trying to get out. Overall, I’m extremely happy with how the unit came out.

Above is my recipe card for the Pink 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 Pink Horrors in the future.
