I've been taking a hiatus for a few months away from the game, i wasn't too impressed with the way 6th edition played but i still enjoy the modeling and painting aspects of the game so during the slower months i decided to start a new army. After considering a lot of options i decided on making a new guard army but it was also kinda of on a budget so liking the look of the new DV cultists i went with a Traitor Guard Army (using the IG codex) starting out with just a low point army and working my way up to about 1500-2000 points the blog probably wont be the fastest as i will be struggling for time and as im ordering most parts from overseas its going to take weeks just to get here after i have the concept for a model, i hope you enjoy reading as much as i enjoy making them. The color palette is still undecided but i was more looking toward black (blueish highlights) and red with brown on the leather bits, i will be attempting (at least) a few new painting techniques that i haven't tried before.

Nice simple changes have a massive effect on these. They are very good, the chaos theme is understated which I like instead of obnoxiously overdone symbols caking everything I'm interested in how your stuff will progress :)

i decided on having a go at a different company commander and making the one i had a platoon commander i put his together with various sm scout and chaos parts, i kinda like the cloak on him (pay no attention to the paint it was a mini i got in a squad from ebay :laugh: )

secondly a chaos marbo with a scout pistol and knife and an sm meltabomb for the demo charge

30 more cultists arrived today finally starting to get something put together, now i have to wait for the bases so i can undercoat them and start painting

also my veteran sarg's with a basic head swap (the head it came with was terrible but its one of my favorite minis to come out of gw in a long long time)

Ah, somebody else using cultists as traitor guard and scrap-building an ADL for them!

Some neat conversions so far--I look forward to seeing how the army as a whole turns out.

I'll admit it needs a bit more plating before I'd feel it justifies the ability to give a 2+ save... but be that as it may, it certainly works.

ill get to the hobby store on wed as it isnt open mon/tue and pick up some plasticard to beef it up abit


in the meantime i needed a break from painting guys (been production lining them) so i put together a vendetta i decided i was going for a more plain look on them so there are no spikes (heresy!) i painted a few chaos symbols on it and did some weathering on the gears and back door

You did a VERY nice job on the Chaos symbol!

Edit: When I first looked at it I thought it came that way ...
