those are some nice scouts. I think this might give me the kick to get off my ass and start doing my chaos marines that I have been saying I was going to do for several years.

Okidoke a wee update, first another close up of a sneaky beaky scout, as you can see the ghillie suit works great hiding my poor painting!!!



Next up, my wee conversion for my pred, I'm not 100% set on it, maybe after I paint it fully I'll be happier.



The conversion was done as I wanted to make a remote style turret which is more common on A.F.Vs today and I thought the normal auto cannon looks too long. I did it by using a razorback heavy bolter turret with one bolter cut short and the dreadnought spotlight added as extra targeting gear, one bolter with added stubby barrel to make an auto cannon and some wiring off a lascannon devastator under the spot light.

If you are going for a modern remote turret look, you've done well - though I'd smooth down that spotlight into a smooth lens for the camera.

I think that's actually a lot more appropriate for what a predator annihilator is anyway. I was always disappointed playing CSM that it was sooooo feeble on the table top but such a cool turret.

I love what you've done with the turret, I'm going with something similar for my chimera.

That is a good idea mate think I will, I just bodged it with what I had to hand to get a basic concept. The predator turret is nice but I just wanted to try something different.

Very nice conversion on the pred, and I like the monochrome scheme on the scout. He does need some sort of spot colour though. Maybe a bit flock or static grass on the base, matched by a bit on the ghillie suit?

Cheers mate, I will experiment with a little color on them, see if I can find a nice balance

Pred finished, needs weathering (which I need practice with) and accessories storage, pickets, barb wire etc

And a wee close up of the turret, I took @Iraqiel advice and smoothed out the spotlight into a lense, I'm still not 100% on keeping the turret, it is mainly a conceptual exercise, I may just convert the actual pred turret with extra optics and shorten the auto cannon barrel
