Default Cubes of Tzeentch

This army is almost more a proposition than a project, but I think I will follow it through for the lols of it all. Basically I want to make the cheapest and quickest army possible just for club games.



I was wondering what it might be like to stumble into Mondrian/Malevich/Rothko's head while in the throws of an LSD nightmare, these squares of colour finally given the autonomy they were striving for in painting

and I also noticed that I have a decent amount of styrofoam lying around

plus there was a daemon codex involved..

and I want a free army...and an army to game with on hand(sold all my others except orks...which are getting dull after 4 years)



So basically im making a Tzeentch daemon army made entirely out of variously sized and positioned styrofoam squares in reference to Greenbergian notions of abstraction

heres the list for those playing at home - http://www.wargamerau.com/forum/index.php?...p;#entry1264623


and my test batch of horrors:

the often disturbing textures naturally created by spraypainting styrofoam seem to work well enough for me




im leaning more towards the pink one...but i still have some unresolved colour plans for the army

This is both interesting and wierd.

How will you differentiate between different units? Colour/size/labels?

different sizes for different units, growing in complexity up to the lord of change which will be a huge surge of cubes.

units of the same type/size will be either aqua or pink, or purple aswell in the case of the horrors.



eg. herald of tzeentch on chariot

much bigger block with melty 'spell hole'

I might run my army this way. Everytime I look at how much pink horrors cost I get scared to even buy them. I think 200 dollars to my horrors. 100 toward grinders and about 100 for 4 chariots and 60 I think for my flamers costing me almost 500 dollars.

I love this concept. I only wish that other armies had similar opportunities for cheap/abstract representations for units.

I look forward to seeing the rest come out. Also: I'm not super fluent in Daemon fluff, but if they are supposed to be formed of emotion and whatnot, could you potentially do a similar project for the rest of the army?

Again, awesome.

Hahaha, this is awesome....but very creepy.

I picture parts of the warp to look like this, just damn abstract weird creepy planets and places.

I wouldn't want to fight cubes....
