So, I'm starting work a new 40k army for an upcoming progressive campaign.
The rules simply being: Paint and Play something you've never done before.
After much thought and deliberation I settled for Chaos Space Marines. They strike me as having the greatest potential for fun and bonkers conversion ideas.
What should in theory follow will be a project log that follows the army as it grows from 500 to 1250 over the campaign, to 3000 as my final goal.
I started painting last week and this is the early stage stuff I have so far.
The plan is to paint the entire army without the use of metallic paint which should force my hand at trying NMM for once.

and closer look
Still have a lot of work to do on these guys. Need to bore out the gun barrels, do the bone sections and decide how the hell I want to base the the army.
Bonus points if you recognise the symbol on the top hatch.
And a quick peek at the very very very beginnings of my Scorcerers. Being Thousand Sons themed, I need a boat load of these. I'm playing with the idea of making a scorcerer unit as a zerker unit. All hopped on warptime frenzied out psykers.
