Well as many might know Im a die hardcore IG-fan but I also love the forces of Chaos (corrupted IG:men and CSM). Well during my making of Imperial Guardsmen, I got bored and wanted to make some other models, here's my results. The models will be based upon my fan-fic characters just like my other project log.

Bare with me, the models will show up in the next reply. I prefer clean introduktions (meaning no images). :biggrin:

This is my Traitor Legion Warband, consiting of Death Guard and Emperors Children. Driven by somewhat same cause, they have forged a smaller alliance as their specific worshipped God tolerate one and another. Lead by the swollen infested Death Guard Dauler Frameius (Typhus model) and the Daemon Prince of Slaanesh, Luuk Serdar, once a proud Emperors Children champion, now a brutal traitor with a twisted mind.

Army-list (***Will be updated soon***):

First model you'll see is former Captain Dauler Frameius of the Death Guard, now a feared Chaos Lord Commander. One of the Chosen Nine (nine Warlords chosen during the Horus Heresy for a great prophecy dealing with the 4 great Chaos Gods). The model used to picture him is Typhus, the Herald of Nurgle:

You can't just take Typhus and say he's someone else with the same statline. I suggest converting him, maybe add a PF or tentacles. Or I would highly suggest converting a Terminator Lord model.

Actually, you can. That's the beauty of Counts-As. You can change the name of any model you want, as long as the points remain the same and there are no changes in the rules or stats, you can do exactly that..or you can take a regular model and use it as a character. So..yes. He can. As long as his opponents understand what it going on.

I will think about if I get more mdoels. I wanted to try a different approach on the Death Guard as not everyone looks the same! Thanks for the rep! :victory:

Well the other guy answered for me, and these guys Im not going to play with. Just gluing them together and painting them and put them up on my wall for viewing pretty much. :) So I thought they might as well represent some from my fac fin. :grin:

So while during my pause from IG:men I went for some Chaos. You will see some difference on the models as seven new ones are mixed with 4 old ones (the new have the slightly lighter colors and the old ones harsch with brown inc). Let's see if you can see the difference. This is squad 1:








P.S: I never thought about until now but I took 7 pictures on 1st squad (Nurgles holy Number). :biggrin:

try thinning your paints a little, particularly the brown around the plasma gun grip on the second to last plague marine, two thin coats are better than one thick one.

That would be one of my older DG-models (painted when I was 14 = not a good painter), but your tip is highly noted! :victory:

This is my 2nd Nurgle squad, Im kinda disappointed with the guy with a spear on his back-pack (or whatever to call it):




I think this would be my Aspiring Champion:







This is a single Possessed Marine without any squad right now (he has the old possessed parts for head and right arm):

Really liking that butchers apron thing. Awesome effect.

You should wash the green because the green of the DG is used, diseased, cancerous, gangreen green, not freshly mowed and watered lawn green.

The gasmask model is great, really liking it.

I'll think about it! Thanks for the advice. :)

I think your green is really starting to work for me on the Shoulder Pad of this Champion.
It looks much smoother and the highlighting brings the green up nicely.

I echo the paint thinning comments others have made but think theres no need for Devlen Mud if you do the green like the champ.

You do need to do a second coat on the base edges as the white undercoat is showing through a bit.

Here comes my first Emperors Children Noise Marine Squad, its not fluffy mixing them together but I'd imagine they work together better than Slaanesh and Khornate figures or Tzeenzch and Nurgle. I can say right now, some of them were seriously frakked up so be nice.
















I can add these shoulder-pads have been repainted and looks much better now after these pictures were taken.

Here comes the Orks! Pardon the bad quality, somehow the focus simply wouldnt end up on the Orks as I wanted. I'll get on taking some new pics on the latest Emperors Children regular Marines and Possessed Marines as soon as I can.

This is my first normal 10-man Chaos Space Marine squad, but I choosed to continue on the Emperors Children tone, so that makes it the second squad in their colors:






Can tell you guys this heavy bolter dude went wrong in all possible ways. I do not like how he ended up:

Nice work so far. These guys are comming along nicely. Like the blue on the standard bearer in the last squad. At the risk of sounding like everyone else a brown wash on the PM's would do wonders. It really gives them a dirty/gritty feel.

Yes, the standard bearer was highly successful of being daemon-looking. There is a character in the Word bearers trilogy that I based him upon (I think it is a standard bearer as well, long time since I read it). Ok, now Im not sure what PM's is, but I will keep it in mind once I find out what you mean. :) But thanks for the + rep.

Thank you, yes I have 2 motives. 1st) I want to show all details as good as possible 2nd) When Im in other threads I always want to see as much as possible of the miniatures posted so Im trying to not make that mistake of showing too little of it all. :eek:k:
