Khorne Lord of skulls "iron lord"
Shadowsword "iron behemoth"
2 chimeras
150 mutants (cultists models and other stuff mixed together)

Here is some updates ignore the bad painting and half built forge fiend I'm in the middle of repaint them all as iron warriors so some still have the base colours they had before if there is any questions on any of the images (what they are, what mark etc) feel free to ask there is a load more which I have but sadly they arent chaos enough yet, as always happy gaming dudes

Nice work so far. First pics cracked me up as the command squads of my Master of Hordes infantry platoons are warzone plastics with gw heads.

Any chance we could get a side shot of the missile launchers? Looks cool from the front but I'd like to see how you did it.

Keep up the good work man!

Wow man. This is just incredible to see. You have to have over 600 infantry models alone!

I can't wait to see how this army progresses. One word of warning, I know how easy it is to fall into the plasic crack addition. I have 8k of nids sitting on my desk asking me why they are all still bare plastic.

Not to hijack the thread, but I was planning on starting a blog in September for my nid army with the goal of painting at least one unit a month. I've been looking for people to join in an get their plastic crack painted as a way to motivate each other to make progress. You seem like a perfect candidate for getting over your grey swarm. Would you be interested in signing on? Maybe you could start putting a dent in those 300 troopers, haha.


Renegade militia army  @ 2015/07/15 02:39:18


Post by: Renegade commander arkos


Thanks dude I must admit I might have already fallen to the plastic crack thank you and I would like to join in and try to get a dent in the horde before I get overwhelmed by the grey haha


Renegade militia army  @ 2015/07/15 21:49:11


Post by: Freytag93


Awesome. I'll link you to the general thread once it's up.

Btw, do you have a current overall army list? I'm curious at where you sit model-wise and points-wise.


Renegade militia army  @ 2015/07/18 01:27:36


Post by: Renegade commander arkos


Thanks And sadly I have no idea there is a lot more stuff chaos marine wise I have and I've never really sat down to write how many points I have altogether but I would guess roughly 14-15,000pts give or take model wise over 600 normal militia models so mutants, zombies, miltia, etc, a fair amount of tanks about 14 of them about 40 plague marines, about 60 chaos marines, 30 terminators yet to be turned to chaos, about a dozen hqs named and normal 3 super heavies that's about it so far but there will be more on the way (soon to be warp cultists)


Renegade militia army  @ 2015/07/26 21:20:47


Post by: Freytag93


Well you should definitely make up a general list. I find that it helps me divide things and lay out a painting plan that I can (hopefully) follow. Plus it's always nice to be able to throw in when you're at your FLGS in the "who has the biggest army" competitions

EDIT: Because I was bored and didn't want to do actual work, I made a quick list for your Renegade guard (not including any CSM or CD stuff). Here it is:
HQ
Renegade Command – 155
• Arch-Demagogue with Master of the Horde
• 14 meat shields
5 enforcers – 125
• Enforcer – 25
• Enforcer – 25
• Enforcer – 25
• Enforcer – 25
• Enforcer – 25
Troops
300 normal infantry – 900
• 150 infantry platoon – 450
• 150 infantry platoon – 450
150 mutants – 450
• 50 model unit – 150
• 50 model unit – 150
• 50 model unit – 150
300 plague zombies – 900
• 50 model unit – 150
• 50 model unit – 150
• 50 model unit – 150
• 50 model unit – 150
• 50 model unit – 150
• 50 model unit – 150
20 vets – 170
• 10 vets – 85
• 10 vets – 85
5 chimeras – 275
Elite
3 Ogryns – 180
Fast
2 Hellhounds – 230
Heavy
6 Heavy Weapons – 55
9 LR – 1260
• 3 LR – 420
• 3 LR – 420
• 3 LR – 420
3 Basilisks – 345
Super Heavy
Baneblade – 490
Shadowsword – 455 (with AM rules, so assume militia training)

Grand total: 5990 points base

Of course, this doesn't include any of the special weapons you will be wanting to throw in to your huge blobs or any other upgrades. But it's a basic idea. It's kind of funny. Your base renegades are almost worth more than my entire nids with upgrades. My swarm needs some work


Renegade militia army  @ 2015/07/27 02:01:40


Post by: Renegade commander arkos


I will hopefully try to make a list for painting soon it's just I need to get more models first before I batch paint them all and thank I will and thanks dude I've been toying with writing down a list of stuff to buy and then for it into a army list but I have to admit that's a lot of stuff now that I look at it and damn it is? How many points of nids do you have basic?


Renegade militia army  @ 2015/07/27 19:34:58


Post by: Freytag93


Actually I forgot how little upgrades I run on my swarm. I clock in just under 6000 base, with 354 models including 16 MCs. I am working on picking up a couple more elites and another flier, but I'm basically at my limit. Though maybe my family or SO will spoil me a bit and pick me up a titan one Christmas or birthday.

EDIT: Once again, procrastination has struck! Here are the lists for the CSM and CD. I moved the Lord of Skulls to CSM since it was in their codex. So the adjusted renegade guard total is 5990 points.
CSM
HQ
3 Chaos Lords (PA) – 220 base
• Lord with MoK (to make berserkers troops) – 75
• Lord with MoN (to make plague marines troops) – 80
• Lord - 65
Chaos Lord (Term) – 105 base
2 Sorcerers (PA) – 120 base
• Sorcerer – 60
• Sorcerer – 60
Warpsmith – 110 base
Troops
40 plague marines – 960 base
• 10 plague marines – 240
• 10 plague marines – 240
• 10 plague marines – 240
• 10 plague marines – 240
60 marines – 918 base
• 10 marines – 153
• 10 marines – 153
• 10 marines – 153
• 10 marines – 153
• 10 marines – 153
• 10 marines – 153
15 Berserkers – 295 base
Elite
30 termies – 936 base
• 10 terms – 312
• 10 terms – 312
• 10 terms – 312
5 Hellbrutes – 500 base
• Hellbrute – 100
• Hellbrute – 100
• Hellbrute – 100
• Hellbrute – 100
• Hellbrute – 100
Fast
5 Warp Talons – 150 base
Heavy
Maulerfiend – 125 base
Obliterator – 70 base
Super Heavy
Khorne Lord of skulls – 888 base

Grand Total: 5397 points base


Chaos Daemons:
HQ
Lord of Change – 230 base
Herald of Nurgle – 45 base
Herald of Khorne – 55 base
Troops
20 plague bearers – 180 base
16 daemonettes – 144 base
20 bloodletters – 200 base
4 nurglings – 60 base
Fast
2 hellflayers of Slaanesh – 120 base

Grand Total: 1034 points base


Giving an overall total between the combine chaos armies of 12,421 points base. Better get painting man, haha.

Haha don't buy one buy two and run the unending horde And thanks again dude I'm just waiting on my three friends (two of them are selling more men and tanks to me, and the other has offered to start spraying them all red so I can atleast begin batch painting, so hopefully I'll be done in a decade or two haha but i will try to get some of the painted deamons up soon ,but another update I have is that in about a month another 400 (yep I should stop buying so much stuff lol) of the warzone mutant chronicles miniatures will be bought and will take about a week or two to get here, for now I have another 40 blood letters and a storm raven box filled with chaos daemons and 10 forsaken to be getting on with, so hopefullly in about a day or two them along with skull taker will be finished


Renegade militia army  @ 2015/07/29 11:48:19


Post by: Freytag93


Well I already have 2 fliers and a couple flyants, so don't worry haha.

And MORE tanks and models?! You are on your own keeping track of your list. I've done enough counting for a while You can at least use the base lists to build off of. At least you have made some progress on the CD. Congrats for that. They are looking good. Do you have an example of your color scheme for the regular infantry?

Also, do you have any themes or plans for the army? I know one thing that motivates me to work on my stuff is to build up fluff and a background for it. I try to make every army I own heavily themed, converted, and with a backstory. It makes me care more when I sit down to paint. Though I stop short of naming every single model, haha.


Renegade militia army  @ 2015/07/29 14:46:47


Post by: Renegade commander arkos


Fair enough haha, yeah don't worry haha I've tallied up what I need to get so ill put that into a army list when I've bought them and thanks again for the list , sadly I don't have a painted example of my colour scheme yet because I have yet to buy some paints but tomorrow I shuts have some of the colours but it's a basic dull red colour (sort of a blood red but not to bright) with the bare heads having pale white skin, I do have background story but sadly it very long and I have yet to name the planets they come from, but they come from a sector in the eastern fringe which has been trapped in a warp storm since the hours heresy, so they sided with the war master but did very little, after becoming trapped in the warp storm they fell even deeper into the worship of the dark gods, the chaos cult grew through the whole of the trapped sectors world's, sadly although the world's are vast and filled with materials and other things needed for a war, they have small populations, due to this the trapped dark tech priests set about breeding soldiers (basic warzone guys) so sort of like urak hai from lord of the rings factory breed for war, and now the wrap storms begin to disappear and they launch there attack against the imperium (so it's kinda a dumb story but I kinda don't want to change the factory breeding as it gives a more explainable reason for horde of infantry) and yeah haha I won't name every single one

Here is the scheme I'm going for (the skin will be a pale white) highlights will be added for armour but this is a taster miniature

Looks like a good start man. Question: are you planning on making this a dedicated khorne army or another god or a mix of convents?


Renegade militia army  @ 2015/08/20 17:17:16


Post by: Renegade commander arkos


Thanks man, and story wise they are khorne worshippers but game wise they won't have a convent as I can spend the points on more guys and tanks


Renegade militia army  @ 2015/08/20 21:52:11


Post by: Freytag93


You may want to reconsider that. For 20 points, you can boost up to 30 of your men with either re-rolling to wounds, 6+ feel no pain, fleet, or BS2 snap shots. And they are all the same price, so you can switch covenants between games without changing your list. That's a lot of benefits for less than a point per body. Just saying

In my list I'm taking Slaanesh because 1) he/she/it is my favorite and 2) fleet is helpful to reposition troops and grab last minute objectives.

Looking good mate. Definitely a good start.

A little tip for photography: you may want to set up a quick light box. It's a bit hard to see some of the details or the true color because of the flash. By simply setting the models on a white sheet of paper and using another white sheet as the background, you can have a simple light box that will help the models pop. There are also plenty of tutorials here on dakka and other modeling sites if you want something more permanent

Also, I'm curious about how are you going to make the militia look different from the cultists? Different spot color, armor, something else?

Keep up the good work. You're ahead of me already


Renegade militia army  @ 2015/08/24 13:01:20


Post by: Renegade commander arkos


Thank dude and cheers dude ill do that for the next lot of guys, and the militia will have the same red colour for the armour, but I might paint there overalls a grey colour but at the moment I'm just gonna do all the cultists then focus on them and thanks dude

If you dont mind me suggesting schtuff, I think you should try pig iron's kolony feral heads. Diversity is key in an army like this! You may also want to get small accessories to add and weapon modifications for the cultists.


Renegade militia army  @ 2015/08/25 15:54:17


Post by: Renegade commander arkos


Thanks dude I was eyeing up the kolony range for heads I must ask how good do they look on guard, also for the cultists I will end up giving them some symbol and little things like that, but for the militia they will be kept roughly the same (due to the whole bred for war style lore) but thank you

You could actually use the full kolony feral models. They make great cultists!

Those cultists look great! I just wish they weren't $3 per model. As Arkos said, that can get pretty expensive for a horde army. I'm going to check ebay and see if there are any secondhand ones. I'll let you know if I find anything Arkos

@kenshin620, do you know when those plastic cultists are supposed to go on the market?

I look away for a week or two, and you actually get stuff painted? Is this the same renegades thread I've been following?

Great work mate. It's good to see the progress you've been making. It may seem small now, but every chunk painted adds up. And soon enough you'll have an absolutely massive army to intimidate people at your FLGS.

A small recommendation for you as this thread progresses: you may want to edit your initial post to give a current status. That way when new people see this thread and start reading it, they can see how big your armies are, what models you have, what is painted, and what is being painted. I know for me it is always nice to see that when I start a new P&M thread.
Just a thought

Probably very very early to be talking paintjobs. But since there are heads from different origins (In this batch Marauders, AoS spiky helmets, etc), do you plan on grouping your guys in subfamilies/allegiances ?


Renegade militia army  @ 2016/03/01 00:05:54


Post by: Renegade commander arkos


Not really the whole back story for the army is there essentially vat born clones/factory bred warriors which are made in just massive numbers to drown the enemy in bodies so they all will have the same look with the painting although the colour scheme might change as I might do them as undivided over all, it's hard to explain the way the army is but there brutal and inhumane in the fluff I've written as well as very single minded not very indepth


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Such as well they are born/made to be what they are so the leaders are from the strongest, there kinda like nids bred to do a certain job

I know so far the lore I've written about them isn't the best, but ultimately they were created by a guy which lore wise is just called the master, he ultimately created this army of bred/made warriors some time during the horus heresy along with a small group of hereteks and cultists, however a warp storm engulfed the whole sector and his forces along with it for 10,000 years the master and his followers have been creating endless hordes of warriors as well as legions of tanks intent on when the storm subsides his army will destroy the imperium, the other fluff on infantry names and such will be added soon hopefully

Okay here is some info on the militia infantry-
The basic grunts are known as "ghüls" in the strange crude language used by the chaos cultists who serve the master, the ghüls are the mainstay of the army forming the vast endless horde of the masters army and seek to destroy all who oppose him
That's the basic infantry info so far

Hello everyone I will have a little update during the weekdays of potential paint schemes for the army ( I know it's quite a shock ) as I've been toying around with going for a more neutral scheme so they can be used for each god rather than just one

Good work cranking out militia platoons. That's got to be over 500 done now.

Don't forget about those pictures from the 30 hour gaming session. We want to see all things extreme in this hobby!

Hello everyone sorry for the lack of updates I will be soon building more militia, but I also wanted to ask for the 8000pt (the my opponent sadly said he didn't have enough so we downscaled ) would you all like to see the army list for what ill be taking?


Renegade militia army  @ 2016/04/20 01:03:41


Post by: Freytag93


Yes! Let's see that army list. I'm curious to see what you can run at 8k (besides more bodies than can fit on a 6x4 board).


Renegade militia army  @ 2016/04/21 21:31:06


Post by: Renegade commander arkos

Nice! Looks like a solid list, though its always hard to guess the effectiveness of lists above 5k. One suggestion would be to give each of the platoon squads 5 flamers. For a measly 25 points, you give the unit the ability to not only put out a ton of hurt on offense but also better defense against charges with 5D3 auto-hits from Wall of Death.

Also, just want to say good luck with painting. That's over 800 infantry not including the marines. It's going to be many bleak days base coloring grey and brown.

Maybe for when you expand the army again (cause we both know you will), you should add more tanks. I think having a full 9 tank company of Leman Russes and a full battery of basilisks would compliment the swarms of platoons. Possibly some CSM tanks as well. I'm sure some Land Raiders wouldn't go amiss
