yeah,
I played a game of 6th ed Chaos Space Marine with a squad of 3 spawn.
They kicked arse in that game so I decided to make the squad 5 men strong.
When I had my bits box out I got carried away and maxed out 15 spawn!

I had the idea ages ago to make a load of spawn for apocalypse, I had 5 metal spawn and bought 10 extra spawn heads from the amazing GW bits service...
(God I used to love GW's bits service... wouldn't it be great if GW resurrected it.)
The idea was that no matter what bits I made the spawn from if they all had the same rage faced head they would look like a team!

sprayed green then sprayed bone then inked with vallejo bucket of sepia!
More better photos as they get completed.

Holy gak! These are awesome, I love the old metal spawn and these conversions are suitably weird yet they all work as a cohesive unit.

What is it about Spawn that make them so good now?

I think it's the 10pt deduction in points from the old codex with lots of extra ability! Rage - Fearless - Fear - S5 T5 3W
They're Beasts, so they move 12" and ignore terrain movementpenalties, which is great for an assault unit.
D6+2 Str 5 attacks each on the charge so a squad of 5 hits with between 15 and 45! attacks.

They can take marks and their random crazy chaos table is never going to hurt you.
3 wounds at toughness 5 takes alot of fire to put down.. mark of nurgle makes this even better!
Plus the are no longer mindless, so you can actually get them to do useful things.

I got my first one painted.
He's made up of a old spawn metal body and head, three plastic spawn arms and a metal ogre maneater arm...

gonna do at least 4 more like this.
Mostly using old citadel red ink and dark green ink followed with baal red wash and ogryn flesh wash.
been tinkering with the idea of marking out the squads with different colours... although this is pretty easy to do and all15 might end up the same.

Nice, I might have to build up 15 spawn as the new rules are A-ok.

I might have that old apocalypse 10-spawn box lying around somewere...

btw Panic weres the rest of your army?

With the galaxy as large as it is the odds of the average guardsmen seeing and fighting a marine or MEQ are relatively slim. Unfortunately the guardsmen in your (and anyone else who plays IG's) army are the REALLY, REALLY LUCKY ones that fight marines ALL the time...

I is getting Déjà vu z

Bit more paint today.
Most of the red done, just need to go over the red areas again to make it a bit more gory.
Some green bits done too.


'ha you thought you'd be a prince... but the gods are fickel my little spawn'
I'm not sure about the almost daemon prince guy at the back. I was giggling as I made him, he could be a prince if I change his head...
He still needs the gaps at his groin completed so I'm thinking I could chop him up and start again...
So while I decide his future...no paint for him!

Yes they are!

So these guys have been kicking around my desk for a week or so now watching me do X-wing stuff.
I made a changes to the line up, the middle back guy was practically a daemon prince he's been sacked off and in his place is a rat ogre.
I decided today I'd get some paint done.

I decided to make each of the three squads have a obvious colour.
I decided on Blue/Green/Flesh as squad colours with red as the colour to tie them together.

I got the base layers down and I'm kinda worried I've messed them up!
I'm not sure If this squad colour plan worked out like i thought it would.
But I've started down that path.. I think I'm about 50% done. So there's lots more paint to go on yet..

Lets have a look.



What do you think?

Cant wait to see them in action in your batreps.
