The Legion of Thorns - Army plan (29 April 2011):
Using the Cool Before Rules approach, this army is not strictly game legal, primarily intended for Armies on Parade in September.

I've listed them in the intended creation order:
- COMPLETE - Marine squad - The Stormbringers - so far 8 - 2 troops, 4 Havocs (heavy weapons) 2 Banner bearers
- COMPLETE - 2 charging Berzerkers
- COMPLETE- 2 x Raptor variants... not your usual CSM raptors (can't stand those)
- BUILT - Terminator pair - The Mournblades ... not painted and may yet become donor-models towards my new Inqu][sitor project...
- COMPLETE- Defiler biped heavy support variant - maybe...

Limbo and Shelegelah - thanks!
Killmaimburnkillmaimburn - that's correct!

The spear uses the blade and cross-guard from Warriors of Chaos sword, hand and grip section from other Warriors of Chaos weapons, and the skull-spike thingy from a Chaos Terminator Lord kit.
All that plus lots of careful drilling and pinning - next time I make one I'll photograph the bits pre-gluing if you like.

Needs some greenstuff patching-up around the fur of the cloak, but otherwise pretty happy with this guy.
WoC cloak attachment idea was courtesy of this great dakkadakka tutorial http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/313112.page, (Thanks Hyenajoe!)
though I decided to sculpt extra cloak over the (non-exsistent) shoulder pads rather than Hyenajoe's cut-shoulder-pads-in-half method as per the tutorial.


C+C welcome!

۞ Jack ۞, crimsonfist832, logg_frogg and Miss Dee - thanks!

I've designed the army around the CSM codex mostly because I like the pics in the Codex!!!
Also, there's cool things like Obliterators and Summoned Daemons in it - must admit though I have never played CSMs before, only Loyalists, so I'm wide open to suggestions.

Been a busy week at work diving, so no updates yet - my next one is in bits so I might photograph a bit of a how-to montage maybe...

I love using those cloaks with Chaos Marines, it really provides very unique and flavorful models. I actually stumbled across that exact same tutorial and used it to create my Chosen!

Edit: You seem to be a bit more skilled than I am when it comes to sculpting, though. Would you mind sharing your technique on how to make greenstuff cloaks? My attempts have failed miserably...

Really like the way you take your pictures, much more interesting that the norm. Nicely converted models as well, I look forward to seeing these with some paint on them

Tortured-Robot - Thanks - if you like, check out my Blood Ravens http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/334237.page for some painted models - hopefully some painted CSMs soon-ish...

Killmaimburnkillmaimburn - Thanks - and yes I do need to paint... life is interfering with hobby atm

LiveforFun666 - Thanks - I really like using the chaos fantasy bitz and soon (life willing) you will see a lot more Warriors of Chaos stuff... like whole models converted to CSMs!
- And I'm working on another heavy weapon atm - that flamer was fun to build!!!

Shelegelah - Thanks - Command has inserted a *CLASSIFIED* operative into the *CLASSIFIED* Area of Operations (AO) to provide imagery to answer your special Request for Intel:



So you can hopefully see I didn't sculpt the entire whole cloak, just smeared GS around a plastic WoC cloak to blend edges and hide the shoulder pads.

Knightley - Thanks - glad you like them, there's a few photoshop hours gone into them!!!

moonshine - Thanks!

Planning on some weekend hobby time so more to follow - Thanks for looking, C+C always welcome !
