Just Finished Painting: Chaos Archers

Another project I'm thinking about for many years now is a regiment of old school plastic Chaos (Barbarian) Archers. They were released with the old "Battle Masters" boardgame. In Germany "Battle Masters" was given the name "Die Claymore Saga" which is a really silly name that doesn't make any sense concerning the background of the Warhammer world.

I never owned this game and I think that I even never played it once. But I remember that Krüger had a copy of it and that Andi bought his copy many years later on eBay. I always liked those Chaos Archers. And as I'm a big fan of the design style that Games Workshop had back in the 80s and 90s I decided to buy a bunch of them on eBay for a few bucks.

I based the miniatures on rectangular 25mm Warhammer Fantasy bases and painted them with my beloved inking/washing/shading painting method. They fit in no army I own. But as I really like them, I had to paint them. Who nows if I ever will use them in a game. Perhaps as mercenary archers in an Warhammer Empire army? Or in a generic fantasy skirmish game?
