New Regiment of Old Thugs


On a bit of a roll at the moment so we might as well take advantage and splatter the paint while the mood takes me. This is a regiment of the classic Marauder miniatures Chaos Thugs form way back in 1990. 



The set contains a full command and 2 different sculpts for the troops so they are very much in the vein of the old Regiments of Renown.


I freehanded a banner for them as well and with a little help and advice form Rochie at http://buriedunderlead.blogspot.com/ I came up with a design I'm happy with after a couple of false starts.


This gives me a unit of 20 bow armed thugs and the option to upgrade the leader to a hero with some lovely pistols and the champion is wielding a lovely big sword that could be counted as a magic weapon of some sort.


I'm pretty chuffed with this lot. Next up for the Fantasy treatment are some Chaos Dwarves I reckon. See ya!

  5. That's pretty cool Col and your chaos army now must be quite something. We need a group picture.

  6. Mate, stop being so productive, you're making us all look bad! I'm struggling just with getting the orcs and goblins from heroquest done, and you've got two whole units done, including one of cavalry? Makes me despair

    Seriously, great work

    1. 3rd attempt at the banner and Rochie helped a good bit.

  8. I love all the old Marauder miniatures. Such a nostalgia vibe. Great job with these.
    On a side note, have you seen Trish has been posting all the original green stuff of her sculpts on her FB page. I thought you’d appreciate those.

  11. Fantastic work! I had this regiment as a kid and did a terrible job of painting them - these look amazing.

  12. This is a really great unit. I love how the banner turned out as well. You're on a roll.

  13. Wonderful work on one of the best chaos regiments. I do love command that includes a champion AND a leader. That's a proper command set. You've painted them in quite realistic but not dull tones, which is no mean feat. The hair in particular really lifts them. A cracking unit.
