A little while ago I posted a thread talking about having all my SM
armies under one chapter. The idea was simple, have multiple codex armies, just all painted the same to allow for free use and quick swap ability. The decision from there was tough, which one chapter to pick. I currently have SW
, Pre-Heresy DA
(Doubles as Chaos), BA
, and some vanilla marines. With that being said, I have settled on converting everything to BA
. They were my first true SM
love, and what brought me to 40k
I am going to do this in phases:
Phase 1: SW
Phase 2: BA
Phase 3: DA
Phase 4: Pre-Heresy DA
Starting with Phase 1: I will be taking my SW
and turning them into BA
. This will include some simple repainting, but also some new modeling. This is where input from the dakka-dakka community will help.
Anyway, here are some pics of the SW
before they see the Simple Green/Totally Awesome Vat.
I will be stripping most of the marine with the skull markings on their weapons and replacing them with more "ornate" weaponry. So that leads to the issue of the "Mark of Wulfen" troops. How do I model them in BA
? I was thinking of a savage looking BA
Marine with half his armor gone, like someone gone over to the Red Thirst, but some modeling tips/advice would be helpful in that regard.
Anyway, this will be updated as much as I can. Due to work that may be once a month. But I generally do a lot in a little time.
