Right, time for another update!

I've decided to start on the new Chaos Space Marine force that I have been talking about for a while. For those of you who haven't read it, I've basically decided to reboot my Chaos Space Marines in a new theme.

Every old model will be scrubbed clean (maybe I'll keep the Heldrake, not sure) and will be repainted in the new style. It will be a lengthy project, but I've come to a point where I want to have the option to use these models as well. The Black Legion theme is not that fun to paint and I've recently fallen in love with the lore of a specific Legion/Warband that I want to use for the future. I will not reveal the theme until the first bunch are done though, so let the speculations begin ;)

The first models I'm doing are the following:

- Chaos Lord (Kranon the Relentless model)
- 2 x Aspiring Champion
- 6 x Chosen Chaos Space Marines (3 are on their way in the mail, so they are not in the picture)

So from now on this project log will once again focus on 2 armies, instead of one. The army in the Army Showcase will also be disabled for now and will be reactivated once I have the first models painted in the new theme.

Stay tuned for the reveal and the first models soon! (To make sure these are done in a good pace, the above are entered in the monthly challenge - All at once!)

Allrighty, it's time for the big reveal - I've hold it off long enough, and they have just been sealed.

The new theme and signature of my upcoming Chaos Space Marine army is...

Crimson Slaughter



The first and foremost model this begs, is naturally Kranon the Relentless, the lord of the Crimson Slaughter:



I filed down his horns a tad, as I always thought they were a bit too thin and fragile. This way he still has his butchers horns, but in a more... manageable state.

Next up, is a example of the paintjob up close, on my favorite Chosen model:


And here's a Aspiring Champion, just for the sake of it.


You will probably notice that there is even a decal on his shoulder. That's right, I even did decals, which i NEVER do! (Huge shoutout to @bitsandkits for getting me these. You, sir, rock!)



To complete the theme, I also ordered some custom bases that have a haunted theme. Seeing as the Crimson Slaughter have a big theme with spectral assassins and such, I thought they fit the theme quite nicely:

(Yes the bottom right one has a hole in it - I'm pinning certain miniatures as they are only standing on their toe)

My goal with the color theme in general was to achieve a dark and yes bright red, that stood out from Blood Angels and have a more... crimson feel to it. It's a good first try and I like the color balance in them overall, but they took alot of time to make. Hopefully the future marines will be a little faster, but I'm taking my time with these, as I'm enjoying them immensly!

I hope you like them! As I'm turning 30 on Saturday I won't have time to paint for a week or so, so the next squad to be painted will be revealed at a later time.

Feedback is welcome as always!

Very, very cool looking. The blue spot colour works really well against the deep red. Where did you pick up the bases?

Thank you! I was looking for some good contrast color, so it's good to hear that it's working.

The bases are from Wargamma - It's the same place I ordered my custom aegis defence line from actually
