Four heads are Better than One - WoC Chimera

While not a traditional Chimera, the Warriors of Chaos Chimera is unmistakable.

I decided to paint the Chimera with each of the four chaos gods:
-the bird head was an obvious choice for Tzeentch (and my favorite)
-the bloated dragonish head seemed brutish and heavy enough to be Nurgle
-the...um...dog-like(?) head felt the closest to Khorne. To emphasize the connection, since the model started as red, a bit of extra blood seemed appropriate.
-the tail's head was the plainest, so only the tongue marked it as Slaanesh (and I decided that all the tongues would match, along with the weird bits coming off the Chimera's arms)
