Sacrifice to the Dark Gods





The Redamant Corpse are a relatively new renegade Space Marine Chapter of unknown founding. Formerly known as the Redamant Throne, the chapter plunged into heresy following the opening of the Great Rift. Led by Praetor Syfal the Opportunistic, the renegades have expanded their empire beyond that of their home sub-sector Aurorous. Fielding innumerable masses of cultists and bolstered by elite traitor guardsmen from dozens of fortress worlds, nothing short of a small Crusade could hope to reconquer the worlds lost.


This army will be my main focus in my 40k life. My focus for the army is more lore than crunch and so the army is going to have a large traitor guard presence.

Completed Models
5 Chaos Space Marines
20 Cultists
10 Renegade Militia
30 Renegade Marauders
2 Forgefiends

I started painting with my cultists to improve my skill before moving on to my Chaos marines. Let's start with my first two models I ever painted and move onto the rest of the cultists. I used a mixture of XV-88/Steel Legion Drab, Kantor Blue, and Mephiston Red for the colors as they were the only ones I had. I used a bit too much shading on a few models and they are shiny as a result. Hopefully when clear coated they will be toned down. One of them was my first attempt at drybrushing which I abandoned right away and said good enough.






From the cultists I moved onto my marines. I decided to make a 5 man testing squad to see where to move from there. The main body is Kantor Blue, shaded with Drakenhof Nightshade, highlighted in Altdorf Guard Blue, and finally highlighted in Fenrisian Grey. The lighter blue area is Teclis Blue, shaded in Drakenhof, and recovered in Teclis. The left arm is Leadbelcher, shaded in Reikland Fleshshade several times, highlighted in Runefang Steel. The left shoulder pad is Ceramite White, covered in Zandri Dust, shaded in Reikland, highlighted in Zandri Dust, Karak Stone, and finally Ushabanti Bone.





I didn't like my skill as a painted with my marines quite yet and put them on hold for now. I decided to move onto traitor guardsmen so my marines will have a meatshield when on the field. The first part of the army is the Renegade Marauders. These guys were made from the bodies of Mechanicum Tech-Thralls with Catachan Arms. The shotguns were made from the normal catachan lasgun arms with the front of the gun replaced by a section of a flamer. All metal bits are Leadbelcher with several layers of Reikland Fleshshade, highlighted with Necron Compound.The pants are Steel Legion Drab, shaded in Reikland Fleshshade, with Zandri dust as the highlight. The flesh is Bugman's Glow, shaded with Reikland Fleshshade, and highlighted with several slayers of very watered down Cadian Fleshtone. The eyes are made using leadbelcher as the base, covered in multiple layers of Bloodletter slowly getting larger around the eyes, topped off with Spiritstone Red.



Some of them have a rusted look to them. This was achieved from the normal Typhus Corrosion and Ryza Rust combo.



The Renegade Miltia units will be an odd bunch. I'm going to have a mix of Forgeworld's old militia conversions mixed with normal guardsmen with cultist looking heads. The khakis are painted in Kantor Blue, shaded in Reikland Fleshshade, highlighted in Fenrisian Grey, while the flak vests are Leadbelcher, shaded with Reikland Fleshshade, and highlighted in Runefang Steel.



Let's all take a moment to thank the Omnissiah for the airbrush STC data.

Working on my Forgefiends right now. Started out with my airbrush using Leadbelcher all round, followed by Ironbreaker at ~60 degrees, with a final top spray with Runefang Steel. I drowned the model in Reikland Fleshshade like normal and then did a filter spray with Reikland Fleshshade to get the bronzed silver look my renegade chapter is known for. I'm glad I found out how to did it quickly instead of doing 3 layers of normal shading and waiting 1 hour between each layer. I followed everything up again by doing Ironbreaker at ~60 degrees and a top spray with Runefang Steel to bring back the highlights, but I made sure not to obscure the shading. I tried spraying Guilliman Blue through the airbrush to get the blue, but I did not like how it sprayed. I gave up and did it the old fashion way with a brush. I did most of it in 2 layers. but had to do 3 in areas. If you look closely at the model you can see that the paint is not even in places, but I plan on fixing that issue in one of the last steps I do on the model (a VERY thin top spray of Runefang Steel).

I planned on making the fleshy bits of the model pink roughly following Duncan's pink horror video, but I don't know if I'll do that now that I see the model half painted. The pink might look odd with the blue, but I can't imagine it any other way except for a bluish tinged white and I don't want the model to be monocolored.

The missing: The 'arms' that connect the body to the weapons. I had them off to help me paint and will put them on when they won't be in the way. The end of the arm is magnetized to change out the weapons between autocannons and plasma (just like the head). There will be a space marine scout from the land speeder storm kit doing a final suicidal act trying to kill the forgefiend. I'll need to decide what chapter to paint him (I'm thinking of just slapping whatever paint I have on him) and stick him leaning up against the barrel underneath the head of the fiend. He will be aiming a bolter at the fiend's chest while holding tnt in the other arm (from the GSC neophyte hybrid kit).

Full list of models:
3 Decimator Deamon Engines (1 primed, 2 unbuilt)
1 Chaos Hellwright on Dark Abeyant (builtish)
1 Chaos Lord on Jump Pack (Built, but might be rebuilt)
1 Chaos Sorceror in Termie Armour (Am also going to make a Jump Pack version)
36 Chaos Cultists (25 DV cultists painted, 11 GSC Neophytes converted using Admech bits put together)
About 30 CSM (5 painted to completion)
5 Chaos Termies (Primed)
6 DV Chaos chosen (Not really going to use these)
5 Raptors (Primed)
1 Defiler (Unbuilt)
2 Forgefiends (You can see the progress on the most completed one, other one doesn't have the blue yet)
1 Maulerfiend (Built)
1 Rhino (Primed)
1 Renegade Commander (Built)
1 Rogue Psyker Coven (Built or 5 Malefic Lords)
~60 Renegade Militia (Most built, at least 10 painted)
1 Renegade Enforcer (Built)
30 Renegade Marauders (26 painted, 4 built)
1 Medusa (In the mail)
1 Leman Russ (Unbuilt)
1 Malcador Defender (In the mail)

I plan on having mass waves of infantry and tanks, supported by a few CSM for the most part. This is more of a fluffy army than a crunch.

I finished up my forgefiend today. I decided to go with the bluish white flesh instead of the pink I was originally going for. I added Spiritstone red to all the glowing bits including the eyes as well. I thought the model looked nice enough and decided against the top spray with Runefang Steel. I would rather not ruin a model on the last step. I didn't know what chapter the scout should belong to and still don't, but he looks either Black Templars or Raven Guard. He hopes a mix of TNT and conveniently placed explosive barrels will be able to take out the foe that gunned down his squad. Is the model the forgefiend's last moment or just another unremarkable battle? Who knows. I know it's the scouts last moment though.








I know the lighting is bad in these photos, so here are some pics with the flash on. I'll be sure to get better lighting on my second fiend.




I'd like to think the screaming smoke pipes sound like this:

Finished up my second Forgefiend. The holiday got in the way of painting this guy, but I finally got him done. All that is left of my Forgefiends are the plasma bits and those are half finished.

I've had this guy painted for a month now and have yet to upload it. My first of three Decimator Daemon Engines. This one is the stock decimator standing over a ruined building with an ork or two underfoot. Painted in the same style as my Fiends. Very easy to paint if you keep the shoulder pads off.





Some up close photos of some parts I like. The exhaust barrels were my first real attempt at burn residue. I tried it on my Marauder's metla guns but they did not turn out that well. I really like the result here though. The ork underfoot is still putting up a fight. I had some leftover bits in the ork pile and wanted have something unique for the base.



Right now my next move is a Chaosified Valkyrie. Already got the pilots and interior primed. Once painted I'll put everything together and prime the outside. I'm looking for a goth looking pin up girl to put on the nose. Might have chains hanging from underneath with dead bodies hooked on them too.
