Hiya, lads. I've been wondering - when is this Chaos Lord sculpt from? I've got one as part of my "all old" Death Guard army, alongside some Plague Marines (all 3E or older) and a Finecast Typhus. Mine's in metal specifically. Note that this image is not mine, but my phone is far from cooperative. It's the same sculpt, however.

 

Edit: Answer was found - after Fulkes' research and cross-referencing with the thing I didn't think to do - i.e. look at Lexicanum for five seconds - he's a 3E metal Chaos Lord.

If it's not based, the year is typically on the metal tab on the bottom.

Looks like a metal Chaos Lord  which I'm guessing dates back to 3rd edition. Found one as an eBay listing:

Alas, he's based and finished, meaning I can't check for myself.

Did some more looking and found him in 3rd ed style blisters, so he's at least that old. I don't think he's from 2nd though as the model style was a bit different back then.

Happy to put my Googlefu to good use!

What’s most interesting is that there was a fantasy version of him. He just had two axes instead of a plasma pistol. I thought it was a cool crossover.

Fulkes is right, he's from 3rd. He came out arounds the same time as the second Chaos Codex of that edition, if I remember correctly. He's pictured in that Codex.

Ok, so way before the second 3rd ed Chaos Codex. If he's '99 he probably came out with the first 3rd ed Chaos Codex.

That's a fun throwback article for sure


Lo, there do I see my fallen kinsmen, Threads cut by the foe I now seek. In bloody battle I will engage him, And carve my vengeance from his flesh. No ale shall pass my lips, At no feast will I indulge. No foe shall stay my wrath, Until my brothers are avenged. Ever shall I hunt my quarry, Across the Sea of Stars. Whilst I yet breathe, I will not falter, Until Morkai claims his due.--Bjorn's Oath of the Lone Wolf

Not sure how legal it is, but I found a link with pdf scans of loads of old issues. There's a few missing, and it jumps from UK to US, but it was really cool being able to go through issues I've not read in a decade or more. Still have all my old WD's from when I was younger, but I can't get to them at the minute.

If it's considered okay I'll post the link.

He isn't in the codex itself. 3rd ed didn't release everything in proper waves. First 3rd ed codex only had one model release with it, the original obliterators, but came very closely after the plastic chaos bikers and near the release of original Cypher. Everything else in it was a fantasy daemon model or part of the 2nd ed studio army or conversions from the 2nd ed era.

 

I'd guess he came out close to the Jes Goodwin plastic chaos marines which were also in between 3rd ed codexes.

I know that Chaos Lord. But I dont know if he was released in 3rd Edition or back in 2nd Edition. He was a common model on the tables back then in 3rd Edition.

Cone on guys. He wasn't in the 3rd ed codex because he was released after. The 3.0 chaos codex is mainly conversions and old metal csm.

This guy was released within 6 months of the chaos 3.0 codex, which was early 1999. When I started with the hobby.

I think the inital one had like a gun hand with a melta barrel or something? Fist holding a SM helmet/ rock?

That was way later. Like 4th ed later.

Yep. I have multiples from when I started up around 1999.

Wow. I remember him. What memories. I had several copies as he was one of the easiest to swap an arm out. (Metal was such a pain to deal with back then.)

 

I made a nurgle version where I green stuffed tentacles where the plasma pistol should be. (It looked horrible.)

 

The rest of min were Iron Warrior variants... until the metal Iron Warrior Warsmith came out. It really takes you back. Without the best of glues, stuff would just fall apart randomly over time in transit. It really was a pain working on these models but now I realize that's the golden era. 

 

Man I feel old.

That guy's from 3rd edition. They would come out with a very similar model a few years later (Head and arm swaps IIRC) in 4th edition.

 

I have one, used it as my Dark Apostle for years.

I got one of those in a box somewhere...I was thinking about doing a new version of him with all the awesome plastics we got now because he's quite small by today's standards. :)
