Hello all, so a while back when the last Chaos Marines book came out I decided that I wanted to take a break from my Tau. This, of course, led me to looking to do a Khorne army, but I lacked conviction and shelved it after some time. Now though with the Deamonkin codex I find that I have that drive and desire to power forward.

That said I am keeping with a theme to this army. I've always adored the Space Wolves for their looks, but they didn't really offer quite the game play style I wanted, so I decided to go with a Traitor/Turned faction of SW.

I would very much like any suggestions or comments you'd like to offer.

First up is one of my two lords for the army.



I'm not too much of a fan of the head as it is now, so I probably will wither swap it or do something with it.

Next up is my second lord for the army accompanied by his personal guard



these guys are all pretty standard just using kit bashed parts from the Chaos lord and Space Wolf terminator boxes

I like the mounted counts-as jugger-lord. Except for the Khornate bunny ears sticking up from his back. I'm not crazy about the Khornate headdresses to begin with, but here it's really not working for you.
You're absolutely right, I'm really not liking it either. once i find a new head I'll take that off too.

The terminator and retinue are a bit hard to tell the paint scheme seems pretty murky, pretty dark and not enough contrasts.
Yeah i need to figure out a better way of taking my pics, but here are some better ones of the Lord and squad.






Have you thought though the color palette for the army? Does it match a daemonkin style, a wolf style, and/or a Khornate style? What are the major colors and the highlight and accent colors?
I do want to keep to the original 13th company for colors as that's where i want to draw from when it comes to fluff for this army. So dark grey armor with dark red shoulders seems to be the way I'll be going. I chose purple for the power weapons because i didn't like the thought of red weapons with the already red pads and I wanted something different from the normal blue. Other accents are mainly going to be in the furs and trinkets. I'm thinking using a good amount of yellow to contrast the dark colors on the armor.


And what unit is next?
How about troops?


I used mainly kit bashed chaos marines with the Grey Hunters box.

I have 3 more squads of these guys then after this I have a forgefiend and heldrake

I don't think i really want to lighten the armor color because it may start to clash with the sliver trim. One thing I've been thinking of doing is changing the basing color to add contrast and brighten the whole thing up. I think that if i go with a iron oxide basing scheme like a*cough* blooded moon *cough* would look good.

I also think i may have come up with a solution for my juggerwolf lord. I'll remove the bunny ear stuff and in turn change it up for a wrathmonger head


I'd also end up using the rest of the kit to make my possessed with some kit bashing to add variety.

So, I went ahead with my idea and I like how it turned out. I realize I have to fix his noes, but such is life.


The other thing I've been working on has been the Demon prince. When i originally built him people said he looked too much like a rat, so I had to change that. That's why he's primed and greenstuff right now. However, I still like it a lot and want to get a second opinion before moving on to painting.






For dessert I have a Heldrake.
