This was a blog i did on another website once upon a time…….
“He’s comming, I’ve seen it, in my dream’s, so much oh so much blood” Chandel wept slumping to her knee’s in dispair, her brother edged neviously across the creaking wooden floor of their humble little Imperial Shack not knowing quite what to do. Paulus raised his hands to enbrace his sweet sister but before he could comfort her the door behind him was kiched in with the force of a sand worm in mating season, he couldn’t turn though as a large bark from a bolt gun at point blank put a round into his back blowing his chest out and throwing him through the plastic sheeting which served as a window spraying blood in his wee sister’s face.
“What ‘ave we here then ? another skull for the blood god ?”
I’m putting together a small Chaos Space Marine army, It’s going to be a bit of a challange for me finishing a whole army(never managed to achive that yet), I origanally started this army back in the last edition of the codex(when lords could have demon gifts) and after GW changed it i stopped work on this as i wanted a Alpha leigion supported with cultists, i’ve scrapped that idea now in favor of a more Khorne based army, still with a few Alpha legionares and some Dark Angel renegades thrown in the mix…
Well I’ve been busy lately so haven’t done much painting, but at my local club we have started a 40k project, where we will paint one unit/choice per month for 11 months, so will keep this thread going, admittidly it will be slow going but by the end of the year should have a sweet army to play with…
I did a Dreadnought this month, i planned to scratch build one at first but this didn’t go to well and had to get a black reach one done quickly to try a make the deadline…
To paint these i used the speical technique of shadow boxing no really i just sprayed them black, drybrushed with blood red first using very little paint, do loads of ‘coats’ like that, then i used a brighter red from vallejo, rojo sanguina (bloody red) its much brighter than the GW ones, anyway i then drybrushed it with that, once the model was done i used army painter dip ‘quickshade’ its called, the strong tone one, easy….
Looks alright init ? I was well pleased with it, although i’ve just noticed i missed a spot with the quickshade LMAO…see if you can see it 🙂
Next on the list, i’ll finish that ‘Rhino’, its primed and ready for the first lick of red paint.
Started to paint my rhino APC to hurry my jolly red skull takers into the heat of battle
Here’s some shots of the paint WIP so far the rhino has been undercoated with chaos black spray paint from GW, then using the biggest brush I’ve got I drybrushed it with GW blood red…..
Started putting a bit of detail on the rhino now…
wanted the tank to look possesed, so trying to get a look where its like the warp is opened up and deamons or lost souls are tring to escape, anyway have a look and tell me what you think, thanks guys and gals ….
Ok so i didn’t do any more painting this weekend, but got some more Berzerker’s built. I’m planning to build another 6 of these giving me two units of 10 altogether abit differant to the original army list i wrote a while ago but building the models is more fun than writing list any hoo 😉
Here’s a little update for you skull taking fans…
I’ve been so busy lately but managed to do 4 terminators 3 with lightning claws and 1 with a chain fist and heavy flamer, no work in progress shots opps…
Wow i’ve neglected this thead big time, so just a quick update really, its a new year an all that :-
I’ve painted up them other dudes now with the beastmen heads although i’ve give 3 special weapons and use them as chosen in games, i’ve also slipped from my original idea of having a pure khorn army so done a unit of nurgle marines too, i’ll try getting some photos of these tomorrow, anyway here is what i just built whilst watching eastenders (can’t believe Ronney stealing that baby )
Heres the first photo of the bits i used, see if you can guess what i want to make:-
Yay ! Thats right its khan the betrayer, well my take on him anyway, just have a look at his axe !!!
Do you think its too big !?? (oh and thats a predator in the background i’m making)
Heres some photos of the Khorne Chosen :-
This dude was going to be my Chaos Lord, but i’ve built that khan dude now and also a deamon prince, so cypher will just have to hid in the ranks of my chosen…
and one of the plague marines…….
