Four Horsemen of Chaos

As we all know the Chaos Gods are modeled after the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse; Khorne - Death, Nurgle - Pestilence, Slaanesh - Famine, Tzeentch - War. Lately I've been thinking about how these relations and themes can be used in creain an army, be it a themed build or themed models.

The colours are one thing to consider. Whereas Khorne, Nurgle, Slaanesh and Tzeentch are Red, Green, Pink, and Blue respectively, Death rode a Pale Steed (most often depicted as a fair brown), Pestilence rode a White Steed, Famine rode a Black Steed, and War rode a Red Steed. So Brown Khorne, White Nurgle, Black Slaanesh, and Red Tzeentch??? Interesting huh?

Any ideas? Please comment.


  1. I had this very thought myself about a month ago. I was AMAZED at my inability to find a four horsemen army anywhere! I couldn't find a single person even mentioning it, much less making progress on it.

    I think it's an excellent idea, but I got lost trying to make it work.

    A lot of good info on the wiki page though:
    The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

  2. Sorry to comment twice in a row, but I just found this: A blog with seven horsemen, four of which are of the apocalypse.

    It isn't much, but it's more than I've found elsewhere.

  3. No trouble Dhinanta. I will hopefully be at least modeling up the four Horsemen themselves using my knowledge of theology and demonology.

    It would be great to do a whole army, and I probably will someday, though it will be a push to get myself to paint even more Chaos :)
