Amidst swirling hordes of Horrors, the Changecasters emerge as powerful Heralds of Tzeentch, marching into battle on foot. These formidable sorcerers unleash torrents of mutating magic upon their enemies, their incessant jabbering and maniacal laughter transforming foes into writhing infernos and wreaking havoc across the enemy lines.
This multipart plastic kit assembles a single Changecaster, a daemonic sorcerer dedicated to Tzeentch. This highly versatile model offers a selection of three unique heads to choose from – a menacing Horror’s visage, a screeching bird-like countenance, or a leering lunar mask. Additionally, the kit provides an array of sorcerous accessories and armaments, including daemonic scrolls, talismans, writhing tentacles, and a variety of hand options, presenting the opportunity to depict the Changecaster performing arcane gestures, wielding a ritual dagger, consulting a forbidden tome, conjuring magical flames, or brandishing a staff of change with alternate head options.

How to paint the Changecaster set
- Step 1: Basecoat the model
Apply a basecoat of pink paint, like Emperor’s Children, to the Changecaster’s skin. This establishes the pink hue for the sorcerer’s complexion.
- Step 2: Paint the head
Use a blue shade, such as Caledor Sky, to paint the Changecaster’s head. Apply an even layer of paint to cover the entire head area.
- Step 3: Paint the robes
Use a pale white color, such as Pallid Wych Flesh, to paint the Changecaster’s robes. Apply thin coats to achieve smooth coverage and allow the basecoat to show through in the recesses.
- Step 4: Add yellow highlights
Using a bright yellow shade, like Flash Gitz Yellow, carefully apply highlights to the raised areas of the robes. This adds depth and brings out the details of the fabric.
- Step 5: Paint the staff
Choose a metallic paint, such as Retributor Armor, to paint the staff the Changecaster is holding. Apply multiple thin coats to achieve a rich gold appearance.
- Step 6: Detail the face
Paint the facial features of the Changecaster, such as the eyes, teeth, and lips. Use appropriate colors to bring out the details. For example, paint the teeth with Rakarth Flesh and add a touch of Ushabti Bone for highlights.
- Step 7: Finish with details
Add final touches to the model, such as painting any additional accessories or intricate details. Use complementary colors, like Nuln Oil for shading or Auric Armor Gold for extra gold accents, to enhance the overall appearance.
- Step 8: Varnish for protection
Once the paint is dry, apply a coat of varnish to protect the model and ensure its longevity. This step helps prevent chipping and wear over time.
