Good to see you back. This plog was just taking off the last time you posted.

Bane looks good so far. Considering his allegiance though, I would remove the Khornate symbol on his belt buckle.

I've been pondering on this as I cut off the symbols on another test model but it really made a garish Mr. T style medallion on the zerkers. At present, I'm planning to paint them as-is and then retrofit by buying a load of skulls and painting them Black/White. With a touch of green-stuff to put them in place they should fit the theme nicely.

A small update. Been working on the Berzerkers and just doing the "Bulk" of the Army now. I keep trying a little change in technique here and there and the results are quite interesting. I'm down to around 3 coats now with the new paint which is actually a god-send.

I am now convinced that painting my army is going to be considerably quicker if I just "Batch" the models. So at the moment I'm doing Bodies, Bases and Legs first. Then arms and the backpacks.

I'm also playing around with flesh-tones as a unit of my Berzerkers don't have helmets. I'm so far satisfied with the effects I'm getting but I think I'll look into some tutorials to perfect the techniques.

Anyway some WIP Pics of the Berzerkers. Keeping the Plog updated helps motivate me more.

Apologies for the photo quality. I've only got the Phone Cam these days.

I love this plog! love the idea of the 5th god that i never knew existed (hmm I wonder how many more exist)

ref the khorne symbols couldn't you just say your boys were for khorne but then got stolen or swapped to Malice?

Also on the flesh tones aren't all of your guys either very light skinned or albinos?

Not sure on the flesh tones. I don't mind aiming for a variety of skin tones.

Regarding the fluff. My Idea was that the Legion is a mish-mash of their own gene-seed (from the II or XI primarch) and they happily recruit / plunder / coerce others into the fold. I like the idea of creating new marines out of gener-seed to "tap into" the resources of the gods.

Also Brainwashing Berzerkers sounds fun too!

Quick Update.

So getting back into painting has been productive. The announcement of Vengeance and a Possible codex in about a month or so is quite exciting and motivating I'm finding.

Here's the Berzerker squad so far. I wanted one squad of 12 to not have helmets on which I largely achieved (though obviously one or two have marauder helms!). I've been experimenting with various flesh techniques with mixed results. The new paints also are proving surprisingly useful.

Plan is to finish the 12 bodies (I have 11/12 here) then start on the missing heads (which will be x3). Once thats done I'm just going to batch a load of arms and backpacks for them which should be pretty quick. I'll then finish off the bases. Since I'll be doing them in groups I expect by the weekend to have this squad completed and then I'll move onto the next lot of Berzerkers (the ones with Helms).

My recommendation is to start a Army Showcase up in the left corner. Those things you can edit more easily if you ask me.

Two things. First, kick ass painting on these models. 1/4 schemes are very hard to pull off properly and you have done it well so +10 internets to you on a sweet looking army. Second, as a suggestion for your log itself try putting a piece of blank white paper behind the models when you are taking a picture of them. This allows the people diggin the thread to focus on the actual models more instead of the various models and paint pots behind them. It is a small thing but your pics will be 10x better for clarity.

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?
