Chaos Thugs are a Warhammer range released in several batches between 1988 and 1991. Games Workshop stamped them out of existence in 1994, omitting them from Warhammer Armies: Chaos. Thugs are firmly anchored solely in Warhammer's past, quintessential incarnations of Oldhammer, meaning they command decent prices on the collector's market.

I regret going with the red hair on these figures it worked on the rightmost guy, who was the first I painted, but looks a a bit clownlike on the other two. Don't paint people with bright red eyebrows. Even Ronald McDonald doesn't have red eyebrows.

Chaos Thugs are great fun to paint as they're all individuals that the sculptors packed with weird and unique details.

This Thug has hair that's long one side and short the other and one eyebrow bushy and the other shaven off. He also comes with a severed head at his belt there's some back story to how he decapitated someone with just a bludgeoning weapon.

This Thug has both his weapons, the business-end of his "horseman's pick" and the pommel of his sheathed dagger, shaped like bird heads. Perhaps it was a subtle Tzeentch reference? I also like how his one scavenged kneepad has a leering face sculpted on it.

The Thugs will get on well with the Talisman Warrior and Barbarian as they're all half-naked men who enjoy shaving their chests. The Talisman Chaos Warrior is the unit champion, as that's how it worked in the Warhammer 3rd edition army lists. Next off I'm on the hunt for more Thugs to make a modestly sized raiding party, with a full command group.

Great pics of some very well painted models. I truly love those old chaos thugs. I had the middle one back in the day. Now I am picking them up again through eBay at some pretty steep prices.

The wargamer wants what the warhammer wants!

Keep it up and share if you have more

Great stuff! You did them proud. And I think the red hair looks fine.

Just wondering, what exactly did you use to texture your bases?

I truly love the old 3rd ed. chaos stuff. I hoarded every different model I could get hold of.

Oh yes, those old time Thugs were great. Well done.
