Rarely have people been so unanimous in their messages - I think it's pretty clear that I have to change the packs Very well, it shall be so!

I'm nearly done magnetising all the shooty arms, after which I will drill holes in the guns and change the packs. With a bit of luck, I might be able to start the painting this weekend, while I wait for the shoulder pads to arrive for the close combat arms. I had some spare, but not nearly enough for another 40 arms :S

I know right?! That was the idea as well from my end. I can see the point of them being good centerpoints though and a welcome variation in the army. I will make a test model and see where it goes from there.

Interesting. I've been curious how those Puppetswar barbarian armors really looked.

I like the detailing and texture. The backpack seems kinda small, at least compared to 40k. They seem disproportionate though. The chest seems narrow, and the waist to skinny.

They are almost as gnarly as the Evil Craft Chaos Marines.

Aye I had a look at those Evil Craft Marines, but I thought them a bit too expensive for what I got. I mean 5 guys for 31? Yikes!
Compared to the Barbarian armors, I also find the Evil Craft marines quite static.

I understand your point about the Barbarian armor being skinny though, as I thought the same - But I actually like it. It gives the marines a more... gaunt appearance. As I'm turning the army more and more in the direction of a haunted warband, I think it suits the strain-of-thought well although it does take a bit of getting used to, compared to the normal bulky marines you see.

@Nordicus
Man you must just be getting up. I'm just going to sleep. But on several occasions now, I get a notification in the wee hours here, as I'm about to sleep and it's tapatalk telling me Nordicus replied.

I hear ya'. I still like the barbarian armours. For whatever reason the Puppetswar barbarian armours and the Puppetswar bikes remind me of the reavers from Firefly. Which in some ways seems very appropriate because they are probably the closest approximation of Khornate warriors anywhere in pop culture. Despite being wildly insane, bloodthirsty, and aggressive they somehow pilot space ships and fight battles.

I've had similar wonders about Khorne warriors. How the Hell do they manage work and logistics without butchering one another? How would a Khorne army campaign in any real sense without organization? One can't really send shipments of food and ammunition by charging forward and killing something.

The ramshackle barbarian armours suggest a frenzied disorder and disregard, which I think generally works.

Hehe I just arrived at work - It was like 09:45 in the morning for me, so I had just gotten my first cup of coffee here at the office. Oh the wonders of working at a IT company.

Huh - I had never thought of that. Now that you mention it though, it makes perfect sense. I will have to rewatch Firefly again with that state of mind!

Man, I have no clue - In every book I read they do have some sort of coherency though, where it's primarily when they're in combat that they loose all manner of sense and control. A entire warband though? No clue.

At least the Crimson Slaughter get some kind of respite after each victory, where they don't hear the voices in their heads. I'm guessing they are unique in that manner, so they have some kind of running clock going until they have to kill again. In that time, they could most likely get things done properly.

Definately - In general I find the Chaos armors from GQ to be a bit too clean and just "Loyalist with skulls" like. I welcome these more ravaged armors, as it gives it more of a "Nightmare come true" kinda vibe - That ancient malevolence you always read about in the books.
