Painting another man's chaos army...

You might be wondering what has been going on and why there have been no posts in a while. Well, when Duelling Paintbrushes ended, my esteemed and skaven-sired opponent had a brilliant idea. HGC club member Ben is possessed of more chaos than sense. He is also possessed of no inclination to paint what ever, which means that he has owned some parts of his collection for as long as twenty years (probably more!) without painting them. Since I am possessed of relatively little chaos, but wish to be possessed of considerably more chaos, Greg suggested a cunning trade. I paint Ben's stuff, and in return, I get to keep some of Ben's stuff.
So far, I have completed a unit of 28 Tzeentch warriors, and 5 Slaanesh Dragon ogres (yes, I know Dragon Ogres can't be marked, I just painted them in the Slaanesh scheme). I've also made a fair sized dent in a unit of Slaanesh warriors. Yesterday, I took delivery of yet more models, which means I have the required minis for some big units of Knights, some Marauder Horsemen, and a plentitude of characters, along with an insane plan to convert some war altars.
One tremendous benefit of the arrangement is that Ben has so many wonderful old figures I would never be able to get hold of. I've been peppering the units I paint with these - many of which I have never seen before! Since Ben will not trade them to me (they are worth a lot after all!) I am painting as many of the really old things as I can so I can atleast have my fun with them.
Unfortunately, Ben has taken delivery, so I can only offer up some of the in-progress photos...
Here's the Tzeentch unit, complete apart from bases.
