So, I'm really trying to get back in the hobby. I've constantly have ideas, but i never get around to them. Everyone who's read my thread knows I have a motivation problem. So moving on, I'd like to put out some of those ideas

I'm thinking of taking my Dark Vengence Chosen and painting them using the old Astral Claws pattern. (The orange and stripes, not the silver and blue.) I'm not sure it will work. The DV chosen are really cool models with alot of detail. So I have the perfect orange but I'm worried it will be overwhelmed by all the chaos detail. Thats not the major hurdle, the major hurdle would be fluff... why whould they keep their colours? It states everywhere that they abandon their colour for Blood red ... So stuck ... prolly dead end.

Next idea is finally doing a renegade unit. A squad called "the Oathbreakers" new recruits that left their chapters to worship Huron. This one might help my slump. 10 marines, 10 different chapters, should mix things up a bit. They would be regular marines, nothing fancy except for the red "X"

So as for chapters does any one have any requests?

There was an ultramarine that had half chapter armour and khorn armour in the melstrom book back in the late 1980's early1990's.

I like that thanks Moltar. Not sure the fluff, but would they be found with the RCs?

On a side note. I been talking to Spiralingcadaver who is doing Astral Claws and Tiger Claws. He suggested that the Orange Astral Claws could be in transition to RCs. Which gave me an Idea. What if they were lost In the Maelstrom like the SW 13 company thingy. They were lost in the warp before the fall of Badab and recient found. They would be twisted and very corrupted by chaos. Which would explain DV Chosen Models with so much chaos taint.
That could work with my fluff right?

Hi-chiming in here once I saw that you had a painting blog too, yeah, I think that the chosen a group that got separated could work really nicely (and it kind of ties in with the FW story on the tiger claws as a corrupting influence).

I'm also interested in a more sympathetic (though still piratical etc.) alternative history of the astral claws, so it's cool seeing another approach like that.

Thanks for visiting.

I wouldn't say alternative history.. more of a different perspective. History is written by the victor and is usually skewed. loyalist propaganda and lies. Huron is the true emperior, but they call him a megalomaniac. What he tried to do was for the greater good. They Destroyed the Astral Claws out of fear. The Astral Claws were becoming too strong and questing the false emperiors currupt ideals.

Hail Huron, Hail the Blood reaver. True Lord of the Maelstrom!

If you look at the Star wars Movies the Astra claws would be the rebels, but instead of saving the universe, they lost.

How about a Dark Angel? Maybe one that is a scapegoat for doing something shady while hunting a Fallen? Or a Mentor Legion for using some Xenos tech?

I managed to get a little done. It's kinda refreshing to paint something different. Ultramarine Oathbreaker:



So far just the basecoat. I hope I got the blue right. I had to mix up my own. I didn't want to buy paints for one marine. I still have alot to do



Thanks for watching

I think i wrecked it! It's too light. It looks like icy blue



Im not sure how to fix it. It doesn't look like ultramarine to me. more like one of Iceangels marines

C&C is needed

I gave it a water down wash of guilliman blue glaze. Still dint like it then gave up.

Sorry Whale, I didn't get you post in time. That looked like a great idea. but this morning I ended up doing some freehand. Now it's kinda too late to change it.

Let me know what you think. It needs another coat of white



hopefully it brings it together. I'm prolly gonna cover it in battle damage and weathering anyway

Cool stuff, and yeah, I agree about it being hard, covering designs by red corsair-ifying them. My best experience with it was to incorporate the marks into the logos, so it highlights what's underneath rather than just obscuring it.

Thanks, it really turned out well. I very happy with it. It will prolly take me a while to get the balls to paint "X"s over it. But I'm not sure what you mean by "incorporate the marks into the logos"
