Lesser Daemon of Chaos

Hey everyone:

I'm fairly new to war-gaming and this is my first ever Dakka post. However, I've been redirected here countless times when googling 40k stuff and some of the creations you all post here are just INSANE! So, inspired by others, I figured I'd give it a go, too.

I started this army back in March though, I have to admit, I've only ever played 5-6 games of 40k! Anyway, I'll try to update with more pictures as time goes and, please, let me know what you all think. Keep in mind that I'm new at this and they are definitely not professional quality! But, I always appreciate constructive criticism.

First up, my Chaos Rhino. What's better than a giant squid monster bursting out the top, right?

Next up are some custom built Obliterators. I wanted to save some money by trying to make my own instead of dropping the $22 each for these bad boys! I used regular CSM bodies with some bits from the Rhino kits and a fair amount of Green Stuff. I also threw in some old action figure guns to bulk up the weapon-arms. I figured these are passable Obliterators; after all, they are hulking masses of flesh, armor, and guns!

Whenever I read converted/custom Obliterators I know there will be awesomely over-sized guns just down the page, and I wasn't disappointed.

They turned out very well. Keep it up.

I wanted to add some Zerkers to the army but I knew they needed to have their own customized Rhino to transport them. However, I've since plopped them into a Land Raider so this Rhino just ships around normal marines.

I tried to make a huge Khorne Idol on the top of the Rhino. The throne is inspired by the Iron Throne from the George R.R. Martin series (Game of Thrones on TV). I just hobbled together GW bits, Legos, action figure parts, and some plasticard.

Keep in mind, this was one of my first attempts at scratch building and using green stuff, so be kind! Let me know what you think!

I had an idea to use some Lesser Demons as tarpits but never quite could get them figured out and placed in a good army build. Oh well. But at least I had fun making these guys.

The official GW demons just don't do it for me. They're neat, no doubt, but there's just something about them that doesn't suit me. So I shopped around and found these guys http://www.manticgames.com/Shop-Home/Kings-of-War/Undead/Core-Units-Zombies-and-Ghouls/Product/Undead-Zombie-Regiment-with-Command-30-Figures.html which seemed to be a great deal for so many minis.

Anyway, I tried to create a bunch of shambling zombies emerging from the Warp. Some of these are the plain zombie models while others have Chaos possessed bits to make them look deformed and more demon-like. Also, some bases have more demons emerging from the warp other than the standing model. I based the models with green stuff and it was my first attempt at source lighting, though it doesn't look that great because the bases themselves are so dark colored. Maybe I'll go back and lighten them up to make them more shiny. I've also since lined the bases with a black ring to make the purple "pop" a bit more.

Let me know what you think!

My first HQ unit is a Chaos Sorcerer in Terminator Armor, though most of it is converted from the Chaos Lord kit. I used that kit to make two HQs (this and a dual lightning claw termie lord). Both of them have wings from the Chaos Possessed pack. Let me know what you think!

Next up is a scratch built Chaos Dreadnought. It's made almost completely from old action figure and toy parts with a few GW bits thrown on to tie it in with the rest of the force. I also used a Daemon Prince head to make it look like a Daemon was piloting the Dreadnought from within the Sarcophagus.

There's still a lot of painting left to do but I was just too excited not to post!

Let me know what you think so far!

My squad of custom Plague Marines. I wanted to do something different than the typical bloated-zombie look. "Plague Marine" has a very chemical warfare sound to it, so I ran with that theme.

My first purchase was the Chaos Space Marine Battleforce. I tried to stretch it as much as possible, so I ended up cutting the legs of my marines in half to double their value, making 2 marines for every one supplied. To cover up the other leg, I made a robe that wrapped around the Marine's body. The Plague-containers on the back were made from a mechanical pencil and some green stuff. The gas masks are just green stuff as well.

Wow, never thought of extending a kit like that.

As usual your ideas are stunning, I just think you need a little more practice with greenstuff so that you sculpts do justice to your vision.

Those PlagueMarines are still pretty damn cool

Thanks, I really appreciate the compliment. You're absolutely right about my greenstuff work... though hopefully it will get better over time!

What are you using for sculpting, most work can be done with a scalpel blade but I have found having actual sculpting tools is a big help as well as rubber paint shapers/blenders, they will improve your cloth 100% I promise.
