I see what you mean, I feel like they need panel lines, maybe thin strips of platicard to break up the slabs of armor?

Looking great painted up, the fleshy leg of the demolisher walker is very gross but looks cool.

I agree with Kid_Kyoto, maybe some panel lines or even just some spikey bits to break up the profile would help.

I've got plenty of plasticard and panel lines sound like an easy fix indeed. I'll get on it next week and report back here.

Suiting! I think part of the "shoeboxiness" is that the sides have the same slope as the front.
If you're looking mostly for verticality, could you raise the turret somehow?

I've completed the test model for the stormtrooper squad.



I want them to look suitably intimidating, combining the basic human aesthetic of the troopers with a bit more chaotic look.

It's a necromunda palanite enforcer with a reiver head.
The weapon is an enforcer boltun with a barrel from the scions hellgun.

The Khorne symbol is a 3d print. It's a bit too big, but this is the smallest I could reliably print it in PLA.
It looks a little bit silly in an 80's public-enemy-clock-around-your-neck kind of way, but I rather like it.
I suppose Khorne approves of over the top things anyway.

I was trying to fit all kinds of bayonets to the gun (it is Khornate after all!), but I couldn't find one that looked right.

This is also a good suggestion, I'll take a look at some turret alternatives.

Allright. Looks like I've got a bunch of stormtroopers all finished up.

Here's the pics:


This fine gentleman right here is the sergeant. He's basically a palanite supressor with a nice reiver head. The chainsword is from the chaos SM set.


Here we have three regular stormtroopers with hellguns. They're based on the palanite enforcers, but one has a supressor body.
The hellguns are scion barrels glued on the enforcer boltguns.
I'll be putting bayonets on the weapons when I get my hands on some Dark Eldar bayonets.


This maniac right here has a plasmagun. It's a cut up deathwatch combi-plasma, glued on the enforcer shotgun. I quite like the proportions.


Finally there's two guys with volleyguns. They're using the weapon thingy from the supressor set, don' t know what it's supposed to be, but I figured it would work as a rapid fire energy weapon.
The guy on the right has his head too far out, Iooks a bit giraffy compared to the other one. I'll have to fix that.

I've got quite some enforcer bodies left, but no reiver heads, so it'll be a little while before I can make some more.


Edit: Every warband needs a warmaster. Here's what I was considering:


It's a starcide vampire with a boltpistol and a scion knife hand.
The head is by Liber Daemonica I think.

Very nice...
I think that they're some sort of less than lethal grenade launcher... Don't know why they couldn't just use an updated Webber model though...

Wow! You’re really cranking these guys outs. Great colour scheme you’ve chosen especially as it seems to be nice and quick. The Wolverine and Demolisher both look fantastic and fit the cultist theme really well. As for the printed Chimera I agree with the others that another turret would help, probably a boxy one to match the overall shape. I think it could do with some more brass bits too, maybe paint a trim where the rivets are? Can’t wait to see the war master painted up too, the vampire looks a great model and very cool leader

Storm troopers really look awesome.

The tank is too rounded armor wise imo, which is easily rectified if you'd give it side skirts

Try to add couple of antennas on the shoeboxes? Could be an easy fix. Great conversions, Blood Pact vibes.

Thanks for the kind words and encouragement. I'm taking it a bit slower a the moment as I'm also building some crews and npcs for Stargrave.

On my to do list:
-Add strips to the shoebox-tanks (I'm thinking tie-wraps).
-Add antennae to them. I've built four GW bastion kits, and I believe there's a whole antennae array in there, thanks for the idea Ferryman).
-Complete the stormtroopers (I still have 7 or eight to go, once I get the reiver heads).
-Complete the infantry....sigh... 20 troopers, 3 specialists, 5 officers, 3 mortar teams. Not looking forward to that.
-Add a psyker (I got one of the Blackstone Fortress rogue psyker models).

After that, I might:
-Add some more sentinels (I've found some wicked STLs).
-Add more transports.
-Add one or two of the demon-walkers.

That should take me way past 2k I think....

Edit: hold on a sec. Rogue pykers in a Khorene Warband? Nah, scratch that. The psyker will have to move over to Stargrave.

I managed to find some time to finish the warlord.

I present to you Magister Gormuth Rayk...


He fits in nicely with the stormtroopers.

I was worried that he might look a bit too 'ornate' compared to the regular guys, but that works out fine as well:



I also like that he's quite a lot taller than the regulars.
Makes him took intimidating.

I might have gone a bit overboard with the nuln oil.

Part of the host will be going to war against 1k 'worth' or iron warriors tomorrow. I'll try to look for some scenic moments to photograph.

So I ran into 1k points of Chaos marine scum last week.
The battle was lost due to dishonourable warp trickery by the enemy.

(In reality he played it smart and managed to lock up two of my tanks in close combat turn one).

Hobby time was a bit sparse last week, but I have managed to finish the 10 man stormtrooper squad.
Two guys have volleyguns, two of them have plasmaguns.



I reckoned that the squad really needed an officer to order them into battle.
First-rank-fire second-rank-fire or rerolling ones are things that Khorne approves of.

So I've added a damogaur to lead this elite section of the warhost into battle.
He's armed with a chainsword and a plasma pistol.
I originally intended for him to have the command rod to issue a second order, but decided against it.
No true warrior chooses a rod over a plasma pistol...



Your feedback is of course very welcome.

I received a small package from my print-guy in the UK.
It contained 3 mortar teams, some special weapons and a bunch of officers.

Figured it would be most fun to start with the mortar teams.


First team. The guy at the front clearly failed his noise marine training. Must be why he chose to worship Khorne.


Second team. These lads set up their mortar close to a telephone pole.


Third team. I was out of large bases so I decided to print the ones for these teams.
Turned out my bed wasn't level (it never is) and this base came out particulary warped.
I tried to fix it with greenstuff. I need some practice with that it seems.
Also, I wonder why I put the warped piece at the 'front' of the scene.

Edit: I fixed it up a bit allready, couldn't stand it

Next up will be some officers. I especially look forward to the two models with power fists.
Completely useless in game but very nice models.
I might make a small diorama for one of them, something like this one I made for my Grey Knight librarian:

I've finished the first officer.

This one has the rank of 'yuash' and functions as a platoon commander.



I noticed on the photo that the green lenses turned a bit runny and dripped downwards.
Fixed that up allready.

I finished some more troopers.

Eventhough the painting is fast enough with this scheme I'm starting to get a little bored of chaos troopers.
Luckily there's only like 25 or so of them left to do :/

Here we have an officer with a power fist, three basic troopers and a specialist with a grenade launcher.
I like how compact the grenade launcher is compared to the (rather ridiculous) GW ones.



Next on the list are more officers, specialists and troopers.

Also the telephone ones will probably get spammed by HQ with requests.

Well, this is the whole army so far....



I've got 23 infantry models left to go and one Wolverine tank.
After that I think I'll call it done for the time being.
