Might have an article up here that may be of some help, should be easy to add chaos bits and pieces - link

Hope that helps and welcome to the forum while I'm at it :wink:
Think I have a set of legs left somewhere, I could give it a try if I have time this weekend.....in between that basing article and my entry for a pirate contest :mrgreen:
Sounds like a cool little project, what kind of trim are you going for. Full leg trim or something more specific to match the rest of your army?

If I have the time and bits I'll try of some different stuff....there's a minimum of two legs there after all :wink:
Awh damn, now I'm all excited about yet another porject.....looks like I'm going to have to try out those leg conversions.

Looking forward to some pics!
Found some parts bits and Im putting together one as I type this. I'm actually suprised how easy it is to make these guys look more chaosy and imposing. May have something together tonight, though it will probably be tomorrow......way to many projects :wink:
Well lets see, 5 of them and you want 2 heavy flamers that takes care of the special weapons. Barbeque time :wink:

As for the rest, the close combat options are all pretty good. Having a melta and a chainfist in there is always handy. The thing is just that termies get expensive very quickly so I'd try to not go overboard on ranged upgrades. Powerfists and lightning claws could be usefull. Powerfists to deal with tougher enemies or outright killing weaker ones and lightning claws to make certain your attacks don't go to waste due to a few unhappy 'to wound' rolls. Although all of this could very well change with the new codex.

So something like
- champion with chainfist and multi-melta
- 2 termies with power weapon and heavy flamers
- 2 termies with twin-linked bolters and powerfist / or lightning claw
Should come down to something around 230-240 points I think
:D love that flamer and the backtanks, these guys well end up great!
The chainfist would indeed look very cool on the flamer guy. I do indeed belive you only get 1 swordtype weapon in the box.
Well not necessarily, chaos uses all kinds of power weapons. In fact and kind of handheld cc weapon can be a power weapon (mace, stave, sword, hammer, axe etc.). Which is good new since you can get digging in that bits box :wink:
Got a chance today to check out the chaos codex.....save for a few cheesy names for some renegades and 3 uunits identical to SM......there's no fire and brimstone just yet.

Did have a specific look at termies for you;
- 3-10
- unless totalling 10 only one special weapon
- any model may replace power weapon with the current options
- any model may replace combi-bolter with a combiweapon
- any model may replace their weapons for a pair of lightning claws
- any model may be a champ
- 1 icon bearer allowed

Don't remember point costs and stuff....but they are cheaper now than before and the heavy flamer is much cheaper (5 points now).

Hope that helps, wouldn't want to see some of these conversions go to waste!

No problem, could be a few days until I can get pics up of that conversion. Seems like I just run out of everything this week...no more thin plasticards :?
