Valent Uuthizar, Champion of Tzeentch

And we finish the new year celebrations with another classic, a sorcerer of Tzeentch from the Lost and the Damned days. I've had this figure for 25 years but never painted it. It used to come with a Disk and a flying stem but those were lost a long time ago. Fortunately he doesn't look out of place on his two feet.


The figure was also a test for future colour schemes for my Tzeentch forces; I find my orange recipe will need a bit more work but I'm quite happy with the turquoise and the yellow. He's another figure I intend to use in my second chaos army but who I can use in RoC warbands. I now have at least a champion for each of the chaos gods.


And here is a family portrait of the three classic Champions I recently painted. They were submitted in the Analogue Hobby Painting Challenge "Nostalgia" bonus round.

  1. Might have wanted a diferent colour for teh beak but otherwise he is perfect. Just like fo rthe Slaanesh champ, the colours are bright and yet you manage to avoid any clash. Really nice !

    1. Thanks! The beak was meant to be a much paler yellow but the ink wash removed the difference, and I didn't feel like going back and screw a good thing ;-)

  4. Good job. I've wanted to use this Tzeentch champion as a champion in my current Nurgle army. It has a crow theme and I was going to remove his Tzeentch symbol and paint his as a Nurgle sorcerer.

  5. Le turquoise est bien, le orange par contre reste à travaille je pense. Un eclaircissement (avec du beige).Mais.c.une bonne idee le orange/turquoise... ca change du classique bleu/jaune. Bonne continuation.

    1. Je ne peinture *jamais* de orange, j'ai réalisé ça pendant que je le peinturais! Je suis d'accord que ça reste à travailler. Mais je suis bien content de la combinaison, que je souhaite probablement utiliser souvent pour mes troupes de Tzeentch.

  6. What superb colours you have achieved. They look very individual and help hold you models together. I always admire painters you go their own way and find their own style. Well done!

  8. Excellent work on these Iannick. I also wish you much success on turning your man cave into a reality. Perhaps my dream of converting the garage into a hobby space will become a reality this year.

    1. Thanks Sean! I intend on showing the before/after pics once it's done! Every man deserves a hobby space, I say! ;-)
