Default Melikor's Traitor Guard

I've been taking a hiatus for a few months away from the game, i wasn't too impressed with the way 6th edition played but i still enjoy the modeling and painting aspects of the game so during the slower months i decided to start a new army. After considering a lot of options i decided on making a new guard army but it was also kinda of on a budget so liking the look of the new DV cultists i went with a Traitor Guard Army (using the IG codex) starting out with just a low point army and working my way up to about 1500-2000 points the blog probably wont be the fastest as i will be struggling for time and as im ordering most parts from overseas its going to take weeks just to get here after i have the concept for a model, i hope you enjoy reading as much as i enjoy making them. The color palette is still undecided but i was more looking toward black (blueish highlights) and red with brown on the leather bits, i will be attempting (at least) a few new painting techniques that i haven't tried before.

Nice simple changes have a massive effect on these. They are very good, the chaos theme is understated which I like instead of obnoxiously overdone symbols caking everything I'm interested in how your stuff will progress
