Chaos Conquer Lord Review (Wargame Exclusive)

In this review I will take a look at the Chaos Lord Conquer from Wargame Exclusive (Grim Skull)

 

Firstly forgive any confusion with this article, writing two articles on the go at the same time can sometimes get confusing and this was meant to be the first of two reviews but ended up as the second! As a result the introduction in the review of the Chaos Lord of the Night  details proxy miniatures and their use so I won’t repeat that here.

Packaging

Like the other model that I reviewer the Chaos Lord of the Night; the Chaos Conquer Lord  came in a clear blister pack and was well packaged for shipping. The blister features the Grim Skull logo and was easy to open. Once again inside the pack the main body of the model and its highly detailed resin base sit neatly packed, with the remaining components packaged in a small secured plastic bag.

Components

The Chaos Conquer Lord  is made up from several parts, listed below!

  • Main body
  • Left arm
  • Left shoulder pauldron
  • Right shoulder pauldron
  • Left trophy rack
  • Right trophy rack
  • Cloak
  • Alternate arm with axe hilt
  • Axe head
  • Scenic base

Here is my video look at the miniature!

Assembly

 

There was very little excess flash on this miniature and overall it was a very crisp and clean cast.  Clean up took a matter of moments before assembly itself. It is worth noting that you should attach the trophy racks in place before you attach the shoulder pauldrons or it could make the model look cramped if the pauldrons dont fit correctly. This model comes with an optional alternate arm that is wielding an axe. This is in two parts and if you are planning on using this I would suggest drill and pinning it before gluing in place.  As always with resin miniatures make sure that you use a super glue to get a strong bond between parts.

Animation

The Chaos Conquer Lord is not posed in as dramatic a stance as the Chaos Lord of the Night, but is none the less a very commanding looking model! The animation is again fluid and sharp and lines of movement are fantastic. It is the sheer amount of detail in this model that catches the eyes and draws undemanding attention to it. Packed with baroque detail and chaos iconography, this will be a joy to paint, a challenge but a joy too!

Conclusions

Once again Wargame Exclusive have come up with an amazing miniature that is highly detailed  and I would highly recommend this model to any chaos player or collector as a showpiece foe your army. It is simple to put together and while could be a challenge to paint for less experienced gamers it will be worth the effort put in.
