Having enjoyed Kraut Scientist's excellent 'Khorne's Eternal Hunt' thread, I decided it would be nice to start my own army diary (or journal, for those of you more familiar with US English).
So may I present the early days of the Warband of Krev Grazl, Lord of Chaos. I'll present some fluff for him along the way.

I already have an existing World Eaters army, which you can see here: http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/652349.page.
I wasn't quite sure whether I should use that army as the basis of a new one, or start a completely new army, but in the end, I thought I'd never be happy with the old models running around in a new army, so I'm starting a new one altogether.
Regardless, the old army still needs a bit of work - I recently made a new champion for the chosen as the old one didn't really fit in, they need some touch ups on the paint, and some of the squads don't really work together visually.
I might show what I've done with the old models as I go along.

But on with the show (and tell):

This is the box of bits I have to work with. Everything in this box has been acquired specifically for this project, including some sprues of Khorne Berzerkers, chaos space marines and the goretide half of the Age of Sigmar box. I also have a varied bitz box that will be raided when the time calls for it!



I have recently got into resin recasting, so I plan to use that to create some links among my models by recasting some of the converted parts. The first thing I decided to make was a khornate backpack, as I don't think one exists in the range. I could then recast it and use it on all my champions or on a squad of chosen etc. So here it is. It uses a backpack from the Dark Vengeance box and the top of a 'trophy rack' from the skullreapers box. I slightly filed them and they glued together nicely.




So that's the start. Sorry I can't show you any red and bronze yet, but that'll come! I plan to create a unit at a time, starting with the troops and ending with Lord Krev Grazl himself, by painting each unit before moving onto build the next one. That way, I'll avoid that horrible feeling of having an entire army to paint, and you'll get to see some finished models as I go along. And hopefully my painting will improve by the time I get to the Lord and he will have the best paintjob in the army!
My painting has been improving over the years since I painted those World Eaters in the other thread, so this new army should be much better looking.

Well, now that that is all squared away, that backpack rocks. It will be awesome to have it repeated across the force.

Great looking World Eaters army you have. Lots of old models in there.

I like the look of the backpack. Casting those and using them for champions will make
a cohesive looking force without becoming repetitive.

Thanks,

Thanks everyone. Hopefully it won't be too long before I have an actual model or two to show you. I'm starting with infantry and ending with the big models (I use them as a treat at the end to motivate me to paint all the infantry!). I need to finish my unidivided army, but once that's done, I'll be cracking on with all the fantastic ideas I have for Krev Grazl and his warband of bloodthirsty marauders.

edit: just spotted this online. It's one of the most ambitious machine conversions I've ever seen. Some sort of Lord of Skulls with wings-sort-of-thing: https://www.frontlinegaming.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/khorne-mower-conversion.jpg.

I've been having some trouble creating the mould for the backpack. These two part moulds are harder than they look! I think the silicone might be too soft though, so I've ordered some silicone that I have used before and is much easier to work with for two-part moulds.
Bases only require a one part mould though, so I decided to skip ahead and start creating the bases. I had a base covered in skulls and thought this would be superb if all the models were mounted on it. So I have made a mould of it, and the first bases are coming off the production line (only about 20 more to go!): Skulls for the Skull Throne!

Right... while the bases are being made, it's time to start on the first squad. My plan is to build a unit and paint it before moving onto the next one. This way, I don't get that awful feeling of having a whole army to paint at the end.
This will be a squad of berserkers who are naked on the top half, except for the champion - within this warband, champions are assigned to squads from elsewhere rather than rising up from the squad to lead it.
This first picture shows the collection of parts that will be used to make this squad. There are the marauders from the AoS box, one of the fellows in warp-forged armour to be the champion, lots of CSM legs and bolt pistols in holsters (since they won't actually be holding pistols).
Spoiler:


Since I want to give these guys power armoured legs, this will involve a bit of sawing with my new jeweller's saw. The cut ended up being really neat; I can't believe I used to cut models in half with cable cutters!

Spoiler:


Here's the first built model. The join has some gaps, but his axe is conveniently covering that right now! I'll fill all the gaps with green stuff afterwards. Maybe I'll fashion belts or something.



Onwards and upwards!




Automatically Appended Next Post:
That was a busy day! I built the first squad, sawing seven unfortunate marauders in half! I'm quite pleased with the results. I found a random mutant arm in my bitz box (no idea where it's from) and that made a nice addition to one of the models.
They don't have bases yet as I'm still making the bases and I'm going to paint the bases before mounting the models.
Please feel free to comment!


OMG! What's happened to my hand?



There's something I find quite satisfying about hand swaps. I think it's because they rarely don't fit and rarely look bad.

A bit more casting in progress at the moment. I had real trouble casting the backpack with the type of silicone I was using, so I ordered some harder, 2-part silicone.
I am using this new silicone to have a go at casting something else (I have used it before so am quite confident).
I attached some power armour legs to two of the torsos and heads from the Skullreapers kit to form the basis of my Chosen. The first half of the mould is now done, as you can see below.
The pink stuff is the remainder of the Play-Doh (a kind of modelling dough for kids).
I use WD-40 as a mould release agent, and it usually works fine, but I've realised today that some of the silicone has not fully cured where it appears to have mixed with WD-40. I'm going to leave this for 24 hours to see if exposure to the air will cure it.
Even if it doesn't it should be okay, as it's only a couple of small areas, e.g. in the holes in the 'bunny ears' on the right.

While the mould is having its 'rest period' before I start using it, I thought I'd take a crack at something I've wanted to do for a while: Berserkers with two-handed chainaxes!
Yes! Feel the wrath of Khorne!
I'm going to make 8 of these fellows, obviously.

Another couple of marines built. I just had a sudden idea - I have some ectoplasma cannons left over from my forge fiend, so I decided to make a Rapier carrier artillery (which will prove useful in an army of mad CC fanatics!).
I won't be making the actual artillery for a while as I'm collecting bits for it, but I decided to make the crew:

"The enemy approaches at speed from the east!"
"Hang on, I'll just check the auspex..."

I'm not totally sure yet, but I have sme plasticard that may form the base or track sides if I don't have anthing else suitable, I have some rhino style tracks from who-knows-where and I also have exhausts from the old rhino kit.
Somehow, I'll combine these to form something that looks suitably warp-forged!

I've found a cool solution (ableit kind of expensive) and is to use the chaos chariot from fantasy, i'll soon be updating my thread with more info on that. I'm converting one currently to look like a gun carriage with a conversion beamer.

I managed to get some painting done on my undivided army, so I rewarded myself by working on the two-handed squad. Four are completed so far! The champion carries a one-handed Axe of Khorne.

Been busy today! I had a bash at the raper carrier with ectoplasma cannon. It's not quite finished, but it looks pretty cool if you ask me! The engine is from an Ork wartrakk or trukk, the frame is sprue, and the tracks, I believe, are from a Leman Russ kit.
What was quite handy was that the cylinders that stick up from the frame of the sprue lined up perfectly with the two of the holes in the back of the wheels!

After a bit of time off (I was pretty busy at work, and didn't feel like painting), I finally got round to painting the first unit. The rapier carrier and crew are not quite finished yet, but they're looking good enough to give you all an update!
I decided that a bone and red colour scheme with hints of metal and brass would suit the majority of the models. I didn't want too much brass, partly because my World Eaters are blood red and gold, and partly because a lot of the models will be bare chested and I'm not keen on flesh next to brass or gold.

And, yeah, I've changed the chassis of the carrier! I didn't like the look of the squared-off tracks on the original!

Any comments about colour schemes or technique are welcome - If I can get some feedback before doing the next unit, it will be useful.
I'm not sure about the edges of the bases - the brown seems okay, but I wonder if there's a better option, so ideas are definitely welcome there!
