I don't think you should do a red 'X' on the shoulder because it is already red. If the marine was from a chapter with the colour scheme unchanged then I think a red 'X' would be good.

A red x was in the last chaos codex or was it the one before.

Are you going to finish the wreath or leave it black?

I'm leaving it blacked out like the chest piece. They kept the icon but blacked it out as a mocking jester. But should I put the red "x" over it?
Someone asked why I have all the Imperial Icongraphy. I figure having it blacked out was good enough.

I started to re-read into it for fear that I might be losing my grasp on the Red Corsair's Fluff.
On http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Red_Corsairs it states:
"Huron Blackheart's dreaded warband of Chaos Space Marines known as the Red Corsairs were named after the blood-red colour they used to obliterate their old Imperial heraldry and symbols. The artifice pleased Huron greatly, and all of the renegade Space Marines who have since joined him have taken these colours as their own to show their new allegiance. They are also known to incorporate the colour black as well as having brass trim on their Power Armour. Otherwise most renegade Astartes that join the Red Corsairs usually obliterate or deface all of their former Imperial icongraphy by hastily painting over them with red saltires (a diagonal cross 'X')."

But then again I dont beilieve in the Whole corrupted into chaos propaganda. I believe that to be Lies of the imperium.

So is taking the Red armour enough?

I think blacked out is fine. Might be fun to add one or two new recruits that are still in their chapter colors. Those... you could mark out with an X.

I think the Black is good enough for the shoulder pad. Putting the 'X' over it would be too much IMO.

Thanks guys, I thought so too. I plan on making new recruits and make a game out of it. "Choose the fallen chapter". It will definitely mix it up a bit and I can paint new things.


So I sat at my painting desk and stared at my RCs for a few hours. I didn't really have much motivation.

So I picked up and older Chaos RC Model and added some OSL eyes and painted a Meltagun.

I'm losing movation to paint again. So I decided to take some photos of my squad units.
First up is my Chaos squad. I love these guys alot of character, I just wih I painted them better. They are alos difficult to transport, most of them dont fit in the foam trays...Too many spikes.

These guys are Recruits from the Malestrom or Marines Created from Geneseed that got currupted. He uses them to put fear in his enemies. They are erratic and unpredictable. They are not given the best weapons or armour. They accuire most of there gear from the dead. These units are sent up to front lines, for Huron cares not for their taint. He uses them and they are effective. A Sargent is chosen to lead them with pure Marine geneseed. Either stolen or a renegade. He will kill any that disobey and since they do not survive long, mutany is unheard of.
Over time these Sergents are watched and when they show signs of taint they are stripped of their armour and weapons and torn apart by Huron's pets. Those that survive this onslaught, are placed in a sarcophagus of a Dreadnaught. This does not happen often and the Red Corsairs do not have many Dreadnaughts.

9 Grey Hunters - 1 melta
1 Wolf Guard - Powerfist, Combi-Melta

I usually field them in a Rhino and try to get into 24" range. But if i was to foot slog them I'd add another Meltagun GH and put the WG in Terminator Armour, that goes for the other GH units I field.

More to come, Next up is my Renegade Marine unit. I need to write it up

Nice work, but was hoping you went w/ a Space Wolves head. Very fluffy.

Also, it looked pretty cool w/o the head, just the skull on the backpack. But since the are renegades instead of some weird twisty CSM mutation guys it would not have fit in very well.

Still a cool photo though.

Great work all around. Always enjoy seeing an update.

LOL those are 2 different marines. He still doesn't have a head. These are marines I painted 5-6 years ago.

@Mr. Awesome, thanks



Here is my Marine Squad. These were painted by More Dakka.


Huron has Increased his army since Badab. They are made up of renegade marines converted to his cause or Marines created from stolen Geneseed. These marines are pure with no taint. They are loyal to Huron and make up the bulk of his force. These Marines are trained as if they were Astral Claws. They are Space Marines with the exception that Huron has given them the truth.

Wolf of Fenris lexicanum Wiki: http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Wolf_of_Fenris

"The Wolf of Fenris was a Space Marine Strike Cruiser of the Space Wolves Chapter that was captured by the Red Corsairs at the Battle of Parenxes, sometime after the Badab War.

Realizing that they needed ships to carry out their raids, Huron Blackheart, Master of the Red Corsairs, ordered an attack on a Space Marine patrol group of the Space Wolves and Flame Hawks Chapters near the world of Parenxes. In a surprise attack near the Parenxes star, Huron's forces crippled the Wolf of Fenris and damaged several other vessels (though all save the Wolf were allowed to escape). Using boarding torpedoes, the Red Corsairs first took control of the engine room so that the Space Wolves could not self-destruct, then a second wave was sent into the cargo bays. The third wave, led by Blackheart himself, entered at a point fifty meters from the command deck. Huron stormed the bridge and tore apart the ship's captain, Gnyrll Bluetooth, with the huge weapon that served as his right arm.

As the Red Corsairs' victory became inevitable, several Space Wolves turned on their fellows and threw themselves at the mercy of Blackheart. They renounced their pledges to their Chapter, Primarch and Emperor, and swore allegiance to Huron. As reward for their allegiance, Huron granted them command of the Wolf of Fenris, which is now part of the Red Corsairs' fleet."

And these are the guys Im working on.

Huron and his Retinue.




The best of the Best. Made up of the Remaining Astral Claws. With the exception of a few of Huron's Wolves that made it into the Retinue. This Power unit recieved alot of their gear from the Wolf of Fenris and their pick of gear from Raids and conquests.

I'm still loving that Huron model. But as you say that the Red Corsairs aren't dedicated to the Chaos Gods but are more of a rogue SM chapter, have you though about rebasing Huron because although the green stuff chaos icon looks kick-ass do you think it fits into the Red Corsairs fluff? I'm not trying to be negative in anyway it's just that I'm curious on your thoughts for his base.

Also have you painted up Huron's pet Hamadrya?

Crikey! ... I love it

Cheers Mate .... Gappy... Fosters ....That's Not a Knife... (Thats all the Australian I know)

Yup Gits has been keeping me going, since I started this WIP blog. I even think it was his Idea to start one.
But Nerd Is Keeping my Grey Knights alive (I will get back to them soon as I get a new Airbrush)

I can't forget Mr.Awesome. I think he got tired of waiting for me to post something on my RC Showcase Thread...I have to finish a model first lol. well if I Start Basing then I shoud have 5 or 6 finished lol.

@ Mr. Awesome, I was hoping no one would say anything about the Chaos Star... Well he is covered in them lol. The critisim is welcome tho. It's my continuity error. I say they are not Chaos and I throw the Undivided Symbols everywhere... Maybe It's a tactic? It would explain why the Imperium believes they are Chaos



I dont plan on changing it. But I do want to buy the FW one. I understand it wont fit.. But its a nice sculpt.

No I haven't painted the Hamadrya, I don't think I can find him.

Thanks for all the comments guys. I'm getting really excited about finishing a 1500pt list..In my lifetime.

Lookie at what bought...



I picked it up at the post office last night. I was hoping to play with it but it's not compatible with my Paasche hose. Anyone know if it's compatible with another brand, Iwatta, or badger?

I'm going to Curry's after work to pick one up.

What air brush mediums do you use?

The effect on your Power Weapons is amazing. I've seen similar-looking work from other people, yours it the best I've seen so far (and I've seen a lot).

I agree w/ Gits, this thread needs more love.

Thanks Skalk, If My marines weren't in red armour they would be blushing.

I got the hose for the air brush. but I had to unscrew the quick disconnect to attach it.
I started playing with it and painted a marine. I added deeper shadows and highlights.

Bad news..
I had the AB in the holder and my leg cought the hose.. which pulled the air brush off the holder... the AB landed right on the needle and tip.

My new AB is done.. Im soo pissed! I need to order a new needle and tip.

So I kinda managed to straighten the needle.
I tried many things but the tip was still bent a little. Then I got an idea...I put the needle between two exacto knife handles (metal ones) and added pressure while I twisted the needle out. kinda like a lathe. It worked out really well.

I managed to paint some more marines... no pics yet.
