Default m00's Chaos Divide

Looking back at my first army when i restarted collecting minis about 3-4 years ago i started with a nightlords chaos army, however, since my painting is getting better and my chance to play games has dropped i thought this would be a good time to divide my army into two and form separate armies of world eaters and thousand sons.

I am going to try and keep the armies fairly fluffy. So i might aswell work on the basic troops, i stripped the paint of a portion of my old night lords models ready to be converted and repainted, but i managed to get 22 khorne beserkers from ebay for a total of 6.40 which is a complete bargain and im so happy with that. Admittedly the models are glued in strange ways e.g. hooks on hands and skulls with chains on them on the backpacks but i can deal with all that and redo it, plus all the mold lines were there (i hate mold lines !!!! ). Anyway onto the first of many wips to come.



So first things first, prime the model, work on the base, i wanted to keep the base in line with Khorne with blood and skulls, maybe some fire later. But for now i did a dusty cracked floor and i added some skulls which i found online from a nice place called black cat bases (www.blackcatbases.com) which sold 100 metal skulls for 10 and they're really quick and nice about things. So then i had a bit of trouble doing the blood on the base, i painted the base white and inked it different colours for the whole lot to get the broken sandy floor, then i added a massive globule of PVA glue with a mix of brown ink and red ink to the PVA globule to give me my blood, done 3 globules ontop of each other to get the final effect atm, it looks nice but a timely process of waiting between drying. Base coat of scab red and then i used blood red to highlight up to pure blood red with thin watered layers. So far it looks promising but i might take the highlights up another notch and make them a tad brigther than what i have now.

Comments and criticism are welcome and this will be updated quite alot now.

So far so very good. Loving the base, very Khornite and the armour so far looks great, epecially those wonderful eyes - they really stand out well!

Jake.

I will be interested in seeing how you pull off the trim as that will really complete the look of the model. Agreed with RC about the eyes too, really stands out.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Thanks for the comments guys, i want the detail on the model to be really picked out and highlighted well compared with the armour.

So i managed to do most of the red highlights, i didn't want them to be too strong but im thinking i might have to add a bit more of a contrasting colour although i am very happy with it all. I also managed to paint the legs on the beserker and the gold on the belt emblem.

Thanks for the comments guys, the eyes are just a blob of pure enchanted blue on a white base coat. The red was done with two to three thin layers of scab red on a black primer. Then small additions of blood red to the scab red and watered down and many many many many layers added on that to work up to blood red. I lost count how many layers i did but im happy with the smooth blending.

Ok, so i managed to get alot more done on my khorne beserker. I started doing the shoulderpad with the skull on it but i lost my view of it and i couldn't imagine where to highlight it properly, so i stopped it and went to paint the weapons instead. They came out very well especially the axe. Im happy with how the whole model is looking now.



Comments and criticisms very welcome.
