The First Claw would be interesting to do as they have so many different armour types in each suit.

Wow... i mean.. wow..
i think, honestly! that is the best chaos terminator i have ever seen!
the helmet, the head protector, the pose!
all great!
the one thing i dislike is the ork chainswords on the end, they look a bit to bulky to fit in there.
maybe another spear or a halberd? just my opinion but otherwise great!

Your standard CSMs look great, but your terminators really take the cake! I like the scout servitor and astartes sniper fluff of your pictures, it adds suspense to your updates

Did you pin the spear of your WIP Chaos Lord? The blade looks a bit crooked. Easily fixed at this stage I hope.

When are we going to see some paint? Do you have a scheme worked out yet?

Keep up the good work! Suscribed!

Rawson - Thanks!

Some answers for you:

Did you pin the spear of your WIP Chaos Lord?


The spear is pinned but I fluffed the job and yep, it's bent - however that guy is receiving a re-construction because:
1 - I'm not that fond of him overall,
2 - He doesn't look 'right' to me when lined up with the other Stormbringers, and
3 - He's about 3mm shorter than everyone else! (seems common with the older metal models)
So he's back to WIP... pics soon!

When are we going to see some paint?


Haha - paint... after I finish 5 Blood Raven's Terminators for Captain Tylerius (aka my son Tyler...)!!!

Black metallics with a greenish zenithal highlight - I'm not fond of the generally garish chaos color schemes

Thanks Malika2!


So - talking color schemes and fluff (hellooo any fluff guru's out there?) would it be too far a stretch to have the Legion of Thorns be a World Eaters splinter faction, allowing me to use the pre-Heresy World Eaters scheme of white and blue?

One reason to go this way is because blood splatter looks awesome on white - and what's a Chaos army without blood splatter?

Best chaos marines I have seen- totally menacing without being OTT. The terminators are bloody brilliant, I absolutely love the brutal looking chain-halberd thingies, wonderful stuff.

Da Boss - Thanks!

The chain-halberds (nice descriptor) I call Mournblades (there's a nerdy reference there) however I would like to say that the original idea is not mine but comes from the amazing Warseer modeller Synapse aka Vorro from Minus1Modifier.

(I would put up a link but it appears his pics aren't working anymore.)

Love the idea for the cowls for the terminators, I am tempted to try one myself using the skull chaos knight pad



I think it would look like the terminator's head was inside a daemon's mouth

Asylum_Inmate - Thanks! - I was unable to source those particular Chaos Knight shoulder pads as they were my first choice... be interested to see how they come out.

So talking color schemes, I'm leaning toward the Legion being a mid-Heresy splinter faction of the World Eaters and therefore use the pre-Heresy WE paint scheme, but making the white a dirty bone like the shoulder pads on my Blood Ravens.
I had thought of a dirty metallic but with the new Grey Knights out there's just too many metallic mini's getting around imho!

... and segue to current standard rant re: Metal replaced by resin... A converter's dream - unless of course you've already bought the mini(s) IN METAL!!!

The bone colour sounds like it might look really cool, and if you are basing them mid-heresy it would make sense that they wouldn't have time to stop to clean and polish their armour as there is more important stuff happening, so the dirty look would fit perfectly
