Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

Classic chaos knights

It’s April of 1995, and I receive an unexpected phone call from my mother. She is in the Games Workshop store in Cheltenham and she is flustered. I am in Australia.

The confused parent is something any Games Workshop employee learns to deal with, and my mother play that role well. It turns out my list of ‘please buy me this’ models was long enough that they could add something else to round it up and half price. But the list was full and she didn’t know what to ask for.

I took a box of chaos knights, which in those days were sold in boxes of 3 metal figures. In 2022, those knights are now painted.

I still like these models, although I would also say they are outclassed by the current plastic chaos knights. I left them on their original based, and put those bases on the same oval bases chaos knights now come on.

Giving them a lift up through the base-on-base method helps but these models are riding ponies compared to the current range. However, they fit in well enough, and the metal horse heads still look the part today.

With the three classic chaos knights painted the countdown is now:

      They may be smaller than the current ones, but the models have a lot of character to them.
