I had some DA and Chaos spare parts in my bits box, so i've converted my own 'possessed by Khorne' version of Cypher:

He has a converted Chaos backpack that's identical to the official models 'winged icon' backpack (thanks to DA landspeeder bits)

He has a Plasma Pistol, Bolt Pistol, Chaos Sword case on his backpack with Hellblade sword handle sticking out,

The hooded head of Sammael (also from the said Landspeed bits).

A Chaos logo shoulder pad and a DA hooded skull shoulder pad.

Space Marine armoured body with DA hooded skull on a cross icon.

The legs of a BLOOD LETTER with various DA bits to look like robbed skirt and a chaos spawn tail.

...Trust me, it looks weird, but good.


The problem is, he's already undercoated, but i'm not sure on the colour scheme? Green armour/white robes or Green armour/Black robes?

Also how should I use him? With Bezerkers? With Cultists? Chaos Space Marines? or with my 5 man Chosen?
BTW yes my Chaos Space Marine army are Khorne based and no I don't care about the fluff logistics of Cypher working for Khorne or being turned into a hybrid-Blood Letter-Chaos Space Marine. :lol:

Thanks and I think I will go for that colour scheme along with using flesh colours on the face and legs (was going to paint the skin red like Blood Letters)... yeah my Cypher is far from Traditional, lol!

EDIT: I've removed the tail and added a burn't effect over the legs by dry brushing a tiny ammount of imperial primer over it (because he looks like he has Chicken legs), so i'm going to go for the Green Armor idea instead.

I've had trouble in the past taking pictures of my models in because they always come out dull or blurry.


When I manage to do it, i'll post a WIP pic up of what has now been dubbed 'Chicken Leg Cypher'

EDIT: Here it is, although it's blurry image.jpg


When he's finished, what do you think I should do with him? Use him in my Khorne army (he looks okay stood next to my Spawns) or play him as allies with 2 separate Chosen units of his own?
