In mid 2010 I started work on a long-overdue project: A Chaos army for which I had had the majority of models in my collection of "Things to get around to" for quite some time (approximately 20 years, in fact).
Most of the models shown here are from Warhammer 3rd edition or earlier, the notable exceptions being the Hellcannon (which is a complete scratchbuild), the Chaos Marauders (which are a mix of old Chaos Thugs and newer Marauders) and the Warhounds. The mounted Generals is also a notable model as the Daemonic steed version is a heavily converted plastic foot warrior on what was originally a one-headed, un-barded horse.
Other units have been partially upgraded - anyone with a shield has a new Citadel shield, for example and any Knights on plastic horses are on relatively modern steeds.
One major departure for me was the way this army was painted as it saw my first use of airbrushes which were used to base-coat the models and then apply several layers of washes to give that "dried blood" look to the armour. The rest of the detail and horse-flesh were then brushed on as normal.
The photos were taken on different visits to Warhammer World hence the differences in the lighting.
The model on the rear rank, fourth from the left is actually a very old "Empire" knight to which I added a lance and horns. Other models circa 1990 but with newer horses and shields.
