Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey guys. I am going to be starting a 1,000pt Malal patron god mortal chaos army soon and I was wondering, is there a specific painting style or modelling theme I should be going for? As the army will consist of around 3-4 Chaos Warrior units and 1 Chaos Knight unit, I wanted to keep the appearance of the army unified and regimented (as well as not having too many overkill spiky chaos bits all over the place).
im not sure but in wight dwarf a litle wile ago there was a coulour sceame for harry the hammer in bone (base coat scorced brown then bleached bone then brown areas were hilighted with breastle brown or snake bite leather with red symbols in places looks like he could cerve a unknown chaos power???
bone in genaral would stand you out from other worrior armies use mark of nurgle to repusent mark of maaal as they will be fighting a anchient terror! or posibly slannesh maaal knows no fear somethig like that sounds cool anyway good luck
:party:its about time maaal got some followers

Malal's symbol is a skull, half black and half white. Hope that helps!
No, I don't have any wool.
Malal? Wow now thats a blast from the past, i had forgotton all about him. I'd start a petition to GW if i thought it would do any good.
well, only being 13 i had no Idea what malal was so i quickly looked it up on google and found this that has to do with the malal colour scheme.
(this has to do with kaleb daark champion of malal)
"Less mutated than other followers of Chaos, he is equipped with his soul-drinking daemon axe "Dreadaxe" with its pterodactyl-like head on a shaft of bone. His shield was shaped in the form of Malal's skull symbol, his armour was all-black with white details and his steed was a black mutant horse. Kaleb himself appeared pale, as the contact with Malal supposedly drained him of energy. His battle cry was "Dreadaxe thirsts for you!".
so basicly what im surgesting is, to try a black and white colour scheme.
I think there are some fluff issues with a Malal army.
Since he's the god of "chaos", the very concept of having followers is unappropriate: in fact Malal wouldn't even like to be worshipped, if i remember correctly.
And so, let's suppose that some mortals would follow him, even if he doesn't make himself manifest: to be truly his followers they should tend towards destruction and chaos, giving few chances that they could rank up into an army, recognize a leadership etc.
I'd rather like a deamon army from Malal, since daemons have complex psychologies resembling they patron, they come to the world only to bring destruction, they are whimsycal, and so on...
Apart from the fluff, the black&white pattern with skulls would be really cool
Does anyone have pictures about it?
It's better, it's shiny, it's warped...it's Chaos.
Hallow-Man is kinda right, in fantasy Malal only had 11 followers 2 of which we know, so not traditionally an "Army". But as far as Chaos gods go, he loved to manifest himself to his followers, he would actually see them on a semi-regular basis.
Also Malal Has no deamons of his own, he's the god of self-destruction if any where made they wouldn't last long. However his followers were seen fighting along side of deamonettes, bloodletters, pleagebearers, and horrors that all looked depresed, hurt, and were wearing a "suit" that was black and white.
But hey fluff was always ment to be strechted, I have always thought when Malal is done right it is beautiful. So good luck
acording to this following parragraph some malal homioes teamed up with some good peeps at the battle at Praag
"mission allied him temporarily with the forces of good. He fights at the siege of Praag and confronts the followers of the Chaos God Bienvenue!, and also finds himself at odds with the Skaven. Less mutated than other followers of Chaos, he is equipped with his soul-drinking daemon axe "Dreadaxe" with its pterodactyl-like head on a shaft of bone. His shield was shaped in the form of Malal's skull symbol, his armour was all-"
so basically maybe you could have some empire guys and convert them a bit to reflect marauders to buly out your army a bit.
Here'a a link to a compilation of all the Malal fluff gathered from citadel journals
