I'm in the proces of building a Khorne alligned traitor guard army and I figured some of you might be interested in seeing the stuff I've got so far.

The most important aspect of any guard army is the basic infantry.
Finding good traitor models took me some time, but finally I settled on the lunar auxiallia models by a designer called ThatEvilOne.
I ordered a bunch of them via Etsy.



Since they were going to be dedicated to Khorne there was really only one colour to use a base...
Red, blood red.



This is the command squad of the, as yet unnamed, warband.
A platoon commander, vox guy, standard bearer and two blokes with volkites (that will be used as meltas).



Being a leader in a chaos warband is of course a dangerous job.
There's allways plenty of competition and Khorne encourages promotion by assasination.

This warband's commander has therefore secured himself a couple of bodyguards.
They started out as mining automatons, but recently they've appeard to be become possesed.



Feedback is welcome. I'll take some pictures of the infantry and post them later.

Thanks! I think it will end up being a 2k force. Maybe slightly more. I have quite a few tanks in different stages of completion and they tend to add up.

I was originally looking for blood-pact models / models with grotesque masks on. The few I could find were either very expensive, very ugly or very limited in poses. Ran into these guys by accident and Immediately loved them. The modeller has also designed chaos sigils in some of the armor pieces, so they really look the part without any converting required. That's a blessing as I'm really bad with resin and superglue.

Here's all the infantry I've managed to paint to date. It's five full squads with sergeant and one or more special weapons.

There's probably around 30 basic infantry still left unpainted.











I'm using contrast red to speed things up, but I've accidentally used a lighter primer on some of the models.
These did turn out a lot brighter than the other models so I've been using nuln oil to darken them down a bit.

Up close you can definately tell the difference but I've noticed that from a distance it doesn't really matter that much.
I really like the quantity over quality approach on these guys.

Next up is going to be some armour.

I had some spare Leman Russes laying around and I was able to get me three of these guys:

I had some spare Leman Russes laying around so I started with painting these in a nice bordeaux red. Khorne loves bordeaux.

The tanks needed some iconography so I used parts of the chaos sigils from the defiler's legs on the turret.
On Thingiverse I found a good looking 'Khorne-a-like' symbol to use on the hull.

I'm really happy with the way these tanks turned out. Nothing fancy, but a simple, utalitarian look and I love that colour red.





While browsing the 3d STL sites I ran into something that's simply to good te pass on.
Here's a sneak peak, the finished product will take some time (both to print and to convert/paint).



Can you tell what it is and can you guess what it's going to be?

The 3d-printer gods have provided me with two other pieces of the new vehicle:


It's not a sentinel.

The Archon Studio Wolverine Tanks turned out very well.






They originally come with just the main gun, So I had to add another turret weapon to use as the Leman Russ hull weapon.
The two heavy bolters on the fron of the other tank are the sponson mounted heavy bolters.
The ' Khorne' symbols are 3d-printed.

I really like them and at first I was a bit concerned that they would make the original Leman Russes look a bit 'cartoony' in comparison.
The uniform paint scheme does help a bit in tying it all together thankfully.

I've got another one of these things still in the box, so that one will turn up here at some point as well.

Well, I had some things finished allready.
With these paint schemes I can finish a 10 man infantry squad in three nights and most vehicles take about the same amount of time.

The biggest time investment is in printing tbh. I'll be showing some printed 'chimeras' and sentinels next and these took quite some time to get done properly.
3d printing is fun, but it takes quite some time to get right and can be extremely frustrating at times.

Thanks! I did send a couple of pictures to the guy selling them on Etsy.com.
Not quite sure how to get a hold of the designer though, I'm not much of a social media man.

Also, I need some advice on this model:



It is going to be a counts-as Demolisher tank commander.
The print hasn't been cleaned yet so it looks a bit rough around the details.
I'll be putting an arm/turret on this side of his torso to give him some more weapons options.

The problem is that the turret is up-scaled in the z-axis.
This was probably done to get a better proportion between the 'head' and the legs.
In itself I think it looks good, but the barrel ended up elliptical instead of round this way.

I could:
a) keep it like this.
b) downscale the z-axis to get a round barrel, but a smaller turret.
c) try to fit a round barrel on the elliptical one.

Opinions are welcome.

Can you clip the barrel off the turret and replace it with a round-z-axis version?

The PLA filament is very hard to work with. The printer constructs the model out of these strings and I've been having a very hard time modelling PLA after it's been printed. Cutting, clipping, drilling and sawing tend to result in frayed edges and parts of the print coming loose.
Perhaps I haven't found the right tools yet. A hot wire might work, but I'm not to keen on melting plastic in my small hobby room

I did print a round Demolisher barrel 'cap' last night and putting that over the existing barrel actually looks pretty good. I'll try to post some images of that later today.

Edit: This is how it ended up. Put a small 'barrel cap' on the elliptical barrel and I think it looks pretty good. Small gap now, due to it being held in place by sticky gum.
I've printed a multimelta and twin heavy bolter to put on the side of the turret to represent the sponson weapons. I'll magnetise these.
The hull weapon will be a heavy flamer on the front under the demolisher cannon.



Glueing will have to wait as my superglue decided to glue itself shut again and we're in lockdown. Oh, how I hate superglue!

First of all, sorry for drip-feeding the existing army, but taking photos and uploading them is still taking me quite some time, so I like to do these things a few at a time.

Back in the days I used to really love sentinels.
They were the first models that I tried converting and just the idea of a ramshackle scout walker somehow appeals to me.
That's why I have around 15 of the buggers in my assorted guard armies.

I bought those back in the days when GW models didn't cost you an arm and a leg.
Since these are the days of 3d-printing I figured I could round up some alternative sentinels somewhere.

I wanted the sentinels to look both classic and different at the same time.
I ran into these guys and figured they fitted the bill:




Anyway I finished three sentinels armed with bog standard multilasers.
One of them has a hunter killer missile.
The exhausts came from the bit-box, no idea what kit they used to belong to.
The one with the HK-missile has part of a Knight Meltacannon as a power unit.

PLA prints tend to end up a bit 'stripey', but lets be honest now, usually nobody looks at these models fron so close a distance.







The second one ended up a little less dark than the others.
It bothers me a bit, but I make a point of not re-doing models and accepting the 'happy little accidents'.

Feedback is welcome.

Excellent work! I really love the color scheme, it fits perfectly with both the army's traitor character and their armor style's mix of chainmail/furs. the slight difference in color shades isn't always a bad thing, I actually use 2 slightly different colors of khaki (same color, but the older paint pot has a lighter tone) for my Valhallan greatcoats, it gives a little variation if you mix the different tones into the same squad.

Have any plans for specialist troops? Veterans/special weapon squads or rough riders?

Special troops... Hadn't given that much thought yet.
I was planning on drafting the veterans from the regular guys, but a squad of specials would be nice yes.
Perhaps a stormtrooper squad. Iĺl try to find some good models for that.

I'm waiting on a squad of troopers with mortars, so that is definately coming.


Rough riders are no longer in de codex I think, but given the right steeds they would definately fit in the army.
Perhaps these genestealer guys on bikes could be the basis for that.

I had great fun with the Ambots in the first post, so I might get some more of them to turn into a full bullgryn squad.
That would also give me the chance to 'chaosify' them a bit more.

Small update:

I've started painting the Demolisher demon.
I coated it a dark red, similar to the tanks.

I then whitened the fleshy parts and painted them with contrast guiliman flesh.






The result wasn't demonic enough, so I added a layer of crimson wash.



This looked suitably demonic.
I then begun painting the armour panel edges bronze.



I've also printed some casualties to adourn his base.
A monster like this takes pride in his handywork, so we'll put some corpses and lots of blood on the base.




@ValhallanWinter inspired me to start looking into some special troops to add.
I've found some great mini's in the Anvil Industries Regiments line, but the price really holds me back.

Instead I dove into the bit-box and turned up some half finished palanite enforcers.
With a little work they can mutate into bad-ass stormtroopers.
Here's a sneak peak:



These two are based on the larger enforcers, with the stormshields.
I've ordered a pack of the regular dudes to form the stormtrooper squad.
The hellgun is the enforcer boltgun with a hellgun-barrel on it. I quite like the effect.

I've managed to finish the demolisher demon engine yesterday.

Painting the thing I found that the backside of the turret was really ugly.


This side was the downside when the model was printed and it did a terrible job of it.
Decided I needed to cover it up with something.


I had a spare grate laying around from the Wolverine tanks.
To keep with the chains theme the model has going on I printed two chains and added them to the grate.

I'm pretty happy with how it ended up.


The front: (on the photo the front chain is in a weird position, but that's easily fixed as the chain is semi-flexible).


Now all it needs is a nice base to stand on.
I started a 120mm oval base with some cork, some printed barrels and casualties.
I might add some sandbags, but I feel that this will probably be more than enough clutter.


I might print a second one after I've completed the stormtrooper squad.
The palanite enforcers I ordered will arrive tomorrow so I'll work on these first.

Very interesting. I've had a plan in the work to do some traitor guard myself and I have these prints saved away for when that time comes. I'm glad to see them all printed out and painted. They would make for great militia units.

I was browsing the STL sites for a nice transport and ran into several nice ones.

The one I finally chose was the one you can see in the photos below.
I decided on this one because it has a nice utalitarian style, has wheels and is relatively easy to print.

Unfortunately this was during Printer War III (I have occasional skirmishes with my Ender 3pro) so the prints didn't come out great.
I also have the feeling that there's something missing vertically. They look too much like shoe-boxes right now.









They need something, but I don't really know what.
Ideas are welcome.
