Two Blue Horrors, One Scenic Base

Where once was one, now there is two.
Where once was pink, now there is blue.

++ Canticle of Change, Codex: Chaos Daemons

If, like me, you recall the heady days of Realms of Chaos books, then you may also recall that pink horrors have an unusual magical final line of defence. When the die, they simply bubble, melt, and split into two fresh (but a little more sulky) blue horrors.

Codex: Daemons has a few words to say about this when describing horrors of Tzeentch. They specifically say that the splitting in to two will never be represented on the battlefield for sanity sake! And I fully support this having played the Realms of Chaos version!

The Codex goes further though. Instead of actually having any splitting rules for horrors, it suggests that one might like to add two blue horrors to a single round base to add variation to any pink horror squad. I took this idea very literally, and this is what I came up with.
Here, two blue horrors that were formerly on separate bases have been attached to a single scenic resin base. Originally, I was worried that such a miniature would look very crowded. But the complete opposite is true. The miniature looks just fine. And when used with a larger pack of horrors, it does indeed add significant variety to the squad. And it also looks cool -- my opponents really like checking this miniature out!

Very cool. I'm reminded of the old pink/blue horrors and how you would never be able to get away with sticking two of them on the same base. So goofy...
