Looking awesome, Bignob! Especially those cultists - man do I love those little meat-shields

Then suddenly I saw it. With only a slight churning to mark its rise to the surface, the thing slid into view above the dark waters. Vast, Polyphemus-like, and loathsome, it darted like a stupendous monster of nightmares to the monolith, about which it flung its gigantic scaly arms, the while it bowed its hideous head and gave vent to certain measured sounds. I think I went mad then.

Overdue update.

One the fence about switching over to 32 mm bases.

That is a WIP Sicaran hiding in the background. I should also finish painting the demonettes....

Personally, I'm a loyalist son of the Lion, but I can agree that that's some pretty awesome detailing on their shoulders. While decals give a clean look, I enjoy seeing freehand stuff.

Thanks for stopping in JT

I'm set on the silver trim now. I have been doing the power weapons orange, but I would like to start figuring out how to match this pinkish colour from Dawn of War 2.

Looking good! Granted I've never tried it before, but what do you think about blood angels red contrast over emperor's children (pink)? Best I can think of off the top of my head.

That breached looks really cool and brooding. He’ll look cool painted up in your legion colours.

New package arrived. I'm excited for the new chaos space marine models, and the venomcrawler. The greater possessed are also really cool, reminds me of the Dark Vengeance box set. I've already started converting away for the berzerker squad.




I'm musing away for my Dark Apostle to attached to the Berzerkers, the wings look really cool, but they might make him much too big compared to the rest of the marines.



Now that I'm dialing in the paint scheme, I'm converting some of the older marines. Starting with the noise marines.



Also need to get everyone on 32mm bases.

Wow! The pink and blue eyes of the Slaaneshi marine look awesome! I thin the Dark Apostle looks great with the wings, I think they look fine once they’re positioned a bit lower

Magnets arrived today, I can finally work on the helbrute. This guy and I have a long history in his incarnation as the chaos dreadnaught in Dawn of War 2, one of my favorite units to base a multiplayer force around.

Nicely done chap.

I did convert the melee marines in that box into possessed myself.
Btw don't be disapointed with the new csm, Equipment wise 7 boltguns or melee Equipment on dosn't Make for Fun options in Building them to hearts content, however they are a pleasure too Look at.
My reccomendation, if you intend on Building havocs aswell use their weaponry to fill missing options .

@Not Online!!!

The box set reminds me of Dark Vengeance in more ways than one. Mostly DV got me addicted to chaos because they had such cool models.

I was slightly disappointed by the marines momentarily, but I was pleased to take away axe man. I do think that autocannon's chest can be better used on full display rather then hidden away as it reminds me of full plate.

The highlights of the box for me, surprisingly, were the master of possession and the greater possessed. Which isn't even why I bought the box, but upon closer look they did a great job capturing pagan religion in the model, reminds me of the Forsworn in Skyrim.

I've managed to corrupt two of my friends into playing 40k *Maniacal laughter* and I've always been a fan of having optional units and combos so the army doesn't get stale.

In this case, I'm excited to try out combining the venomcrawler, greater possessed, master of possession and my 5 possessed in blob of doom.

@Gobert Thanks for the supportive commentary, helps build motivation.

And another update. I figure it's been long enough since everyone has seen some colour.



Another breakthrough moment was remembering this shade of pink. It is very vibrant, so it serves the purpose of catching eyes on the tabletop. Might switch the power weapons over to it.

Decision time. I picked up the martian ironearth base and have some plants, I realized some better use of colour theory would make the models pop better and red bases will probably be the means to achieve this by contrasting the blue/green. Which means I'll need to change the Blackstone fortress team to red crystal bases.

I'm curious what everyone else thinks of the new red bases vs the grey rubble bases. Plus a little update on the breacher.

The red works, but I would just be careful not to make it "brighter" than your blue, or else it'll be the model making the base pop!
