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...
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
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!
