So after some years I now have a decent sized Chaos Marines army growing.
(NOTE: they all need basing, i'm working on it)

They are the Legion of Perfects, formerly known as the Emperor's Beasts

A stub of the backround is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/75zfw3ik73zb3pf/Emperor%27s%20Wild%20Beasts.pdf
(sorry for my bad english in the document...)

I will begin this project log showing off the personalities of my Taitor Legion. There are many factions inside the belly of this growing force.
Many of those charachters are "native" of the Wild Beasts, while others have come in contact with it due to the lure of Slaanesh or sent by others to watch closely at this recently turned traitor Chapter. Some of them, however, just follow the Legion like vultures, preying on the corpse of the Imperium.

I will begin with the Daemon Prince Nefer'Het.
He was the one that actually sprang the legion doors to Chaos. As former Chapter Master he lived a long and bloodied life, his deed are unnamable, vicious and dripping self contempt.
He has earned himself the favour of Slaanesh and uses his dark aura to lure other Lords and Sorcerers to his path of damnation.




Nefer'Het, a sort of God for the whole Legion,is seldom seen giving orders or commanding battlegroups. He does what he (and his Dark Prince) wants.
The chain of command is then held by the malicious Lord Rakshar.
He was the 10th Company Captain, but his rank rised fast when he ensnared the Daemonette Herald Esh'Voraash. He let the daemon inside him and become a Possessed. His strong force of will, however, makes him (almost) capable of controlling the raw warp energy that inhabit his super-human body. He is a cunning, devious tactician that has learned how to make short travels trough the warp thanks to his daemon and uses this ability to avoid enemy detection and to make some of his choosen troops slip behind enemy lines...





Next: Hymdrax and Malikai the Sorcerors

Malikai is the most powerful Psyker in the Legion, second only to Nefer'Het himself.
The corruption of Chaos took him after three centuries of service as Epistolary. After an ill fated warp probing with his mind, attempting a divination , he finally fell in the grasp of the Dark Powers. Now he is being consumed by Slaanesh. Maikai has not yet sold his soul to the Dark Prince, but eventually will. He is a "trusted" servant of Nefer'Het and always tryes to learn dark secrets from the Daemon Prince.



Another Librarian of the Emperor's Wild Beasts fell to chaos, much due to the wicked influence of Malikai the Arch-Sorceror.
This librarian is now known as Hymdrax. He has gained much power thanks to his allegiance to Chaos. He is not planning to bear the Mark of Slaanesh and still tryies to negotiate with all of the Four Powers. He is a pyromaniac, a sadist and the leader of a small cabal of cultist.



Next: The Overlord and Boograth the Rotting Prince

The Overlord is an envoy of the Black Legion. He is following Nefer'Het to get hints on the Daemon Prince plans and to control the Perfects. He has a small force under his command and acts formally as an ally of the main force.



Boograth is a bloated Prince of Nurgle. No one knows why or when it began to stalk the legion of Perfects, it is a secret that Nefer'Het keeps for himself. Boograth acts like a carrion, a corrupted scavenger that follow Nefer'Het everywhere. He thrives in destruction and in spreading his diseases. A small band of followers worship him and obey his orders.


NEXT: i'll show some of the troops. Many Marines are on the painting station right now.
Any comments so far?

You have some good stuff, nice alternative models and your background for each character is even cooler. Colour scheme is almost too good very clean very suited to the legion of perfects. Im interested in seeing your troops to see how you carry the colours over nice stuff keep it up :)

Those are the troops of the Legion.
I've painted Squad Castrator, the Pax Slaaneshi and Squad Aestus long ago (6-7 years)

Squad Castrator is a multirole unit, comprised by some of the oldest veterans in the Legion. The Champion, Surbaan, has served under Nefer'Het for almost 2 centuries. They ride onto the Pax Slaaneshi, an old and revered Rhino, whose machine spirit has developed a taste for crushed bones and gory entrails under his tracks.
The squad is often used as a professional Kill Team to harass the enemy rear, hunt down enemy stragglers or to perform crucial explorations. Many "Castrators" show flowers on their shoulder pads and the Pax Slaaneshi is painted with many leafs and multicoloured flowers. This means that the seeds of evil and heresy have bloomed full in their souls.








In Squad Aestus are found,instead, the youngest Battle Brothers, not yet proven worthy of "trust" in the eyes of their Daemon Lord. Due to this, they are daring and savage glory hunters that stalk enemy tanks, monstruos creatures and ill-protected warlords to set ablaze with their meltaguns. The Champion, Hultoraeus, is a clone of Socix, the infamous Havoc Champion.









Unlike their brethren in Squad Castrator and Aestus, who display heretical colours, Squad Cornigerum Dominum still wear the pre-betrayal "hunter beast" camo pattern and codex black and yellow colours. Some of them still display the number 5 on shoulder pads, the number of their former Company. This ostensible discipline and strict mantainance of codex colours should not mislead the observer. They are lost. their souls are long ago slipped in to the lustful embrace of Slaanesh. The Champion Kalaverius has been thrice blessed by Slaanesh for his morbid desecration of the Holy Halo Cathedral, on Zamora Secundis. Their preferred transport is the Rhino called Oculus Terroris. They're entertained by the tortured machine spirit pain shrieks, still sane and loyal to mankind but forced with terrible curses to do Slaanesh's will.
















NEXT: Squad Licentia, the Warpflame Cult and the Warp Ghosts (count-as Cultists)

Real life is really invasive. I'll manage to upload some more pics tonight, but the painting station is covered in dust :p.

Thank you sir. And thank to you I just notice i've not taken a complete army picture!!
This is not good, I'll make amend :)
____________________________________
This is Squad Licentia, a pack of wicked and perverse murders. They have had a long career under Nefer'Het, killing many servants of the imperium, gorging on the innocent's souls. Slaanesh granted them a warp-infused fragment of the tapestry of his own palace, after the annihilation of an entire Schola Progenium, on Zamora Tertius; the squad is using this fragment as a banner, stating their superiority and revelling in the spicy and inebriating scent it exudes.








The Warp Flame Cult is joined by many of the desperate miners and labourers of the burning planet of Zamora Primaris. A life of ignorance, pain, toil and injustice has closed their souls to the Emperor, making these poor bastards easy prey for the lulling words of Hymdrax. The Cultists acts as bodyguards for the Sorceror and give him plenty of souls to sacrifice. Just the promise of a warp spawned paradise of lust, gluttony and pleasure is enough for them. Anything to escape the unbearable burden of the Emperor's heel.










Many of those who dies in the hellish rituals and orgy led by Hymdrax have their souls enslaved by the sorceror. He link the spirits of the dead to phylacteries, creating a small army of weak warp ghosts, that cannot really be destroyed.



(they count as cultists with Mark of tzeentch to represent a weak demonicity. I used them as Lesser daemons, in 5th edition.)

Next I'll be showing the Elites: the Incursio Ani Chosen squad, the Corroded Plague marine squad and the Khornate berzerkers, the Meek's Devourers.

So, after a short vacation, I've returned. This time i'll show the Incursio Ani chosen squad and the Futeor Havoc squad.

Some of the models are as old as me and I panted them long time ago :), but i'm pretty happy with the chromatic horror they cuase in people!! It's Slaanesh, baby!

Here it is Incursio Ani squad. This elite strike team is vowed to slaanesh and no longer resembles what it once was: a proud and powerful bulwark against darkness. Now, it IS darkness. The squad rides onto the Anal Intruder, the cacophonic rhino, whose machine spirit has been replaced by a Daemonette Musician. (inside the rhino I've put a small mp3 player, so the speaker is actually working. Usually it shouts death metal, doom metal, grindcore and the like, to my adversary distress.)
As former members of Nefer'Het retinue, when he still was a mortal, they are granted acces to the Inner Sanctum Armoury and usually sports a wide range of hi-tech weapons, such as ancient plasmaguns and xeno meltabombs. They are truly skilled with this weapons and many elite enemies have fallen prey of their triggers.








The squad Futeor is comprised by the remnants of many Devastator teams. During the rebellion of the Chapter many cruel infights where reported in the armoury, where knives, maces and fists where used to win the Devastator's squads most wanted prize: the heavy weapons. The traitors won the bloody battle and new Havocs bands were born. Squad Futeor is the most notable as its leader is Brother Socix. This particular Champion has an infamous long history in Imperial Administratum annals as an iconoclast and a rapist. It is also whispered that Fabius Bile himself has something to do with Socix's gene-seed modification. Moreover, he has a clone, Hultoraeus, made for him by a Renegade Magos Biologos on an nameless planet. The purpose of this clone is yet another secret...

The peak of hedonism and depravity of the Legion of Perfects is reached by the Terminator retinue of Lord Rakshar. They have appointed themselves with the title of Perfects and proudly display Slaaneshi runes over their ancient armours.
Formerly in service of Nefer'Het himself, now they act as enforcers of his will, protecting his general and crushing his foes. The Daemon prince himself has blessed the Banner of Excess they bring in combat, filling the Terminators with lust and blasphemous joy. The Perfects are famous for their heinous practices on the battlefield: often they will wound the foe instead of killing it, just to indulge in acts better left to imaginations in the midst of the battle. A feat that has brought great infamy on the Perfects's name is the teleport boarding of the Imperial Navy Lunar Cruiser "Holy Sword": cutting a bloodied path into the cruiser's decks, they slew the Capitain and switched off the life support systems. While the cold void chilled and suffocated the thousands of imperial crewmen, they teleported back with all the imperial Navigators as prize...

This pics are from last month, i'm really lazy in posting stuff...:grin:

here we have Rex Terribus and Victor, the two old Predators, usually attached to the 5th Company. Their pilots usually work like a wolf pack, with the Victor hammering vehicles and monsters from afar and the Rex Terribus rampaging over approaching infantry or supporting the Victor with the finishing blow from its twin linked lascannon.
The two tanks are still painted with the Chapter loyalist "stalker pattern", but the hulls are defiled with chaos icons.

The two took part in many encounters against tyranids, scoring 4 Tervigon killings, amongst the others.









About the stuff I'm painting:
There are (sorry, no pics):
- Khorne Lord on foot
- 7 Plague Marines + rhino
- 5 plague bikers
- 12 Cultists with rifles
- 6 Noise Marines
Sooner or later i'll finish those................
I still have to post the khorne berzerkers i painted some months ago.
it's not so easy to find the time (especially because I'm painting my BFG fleet too!)
Cheers

So, a little update:
this is a WIP. A Khorne Lord (model from DV). My motto painting this guy is : the sooner, the better. I've used tons of washes and reduced detail painting to minimal. Am I happy with the resul? no. Am I happy of the time saved? hell yeah. :smoke: (sorry for the crappy pics)




Then...epic...god why. why i do keep buying stuff. those in the pic are just 1/10 of the epic marines i've recently aquired. I've tried to paint them like my french girls, but it is not working. I guess it is because i'm using black primer. I should go for white primer.
Do you have any suggestion on how to paint those guys pink?
(yeah pink. you know why.)



Last but not least, my BFG chaos fleet!
The Gift of Fury Grand Cruiser, the two Murder Class Wheel of Pain & Column of Sadness, the Devastation class Riddle of Steel and the Hades class heavy Cruiser Wolf Witch.
If you can guess from where the names came from, i'll give you +rep.



























Cheers!

All names Conan references?
I love Conan.
You deserve some rep, sir.
ALL HAIL KING CONAN!!
:drinks:

:biggrin: In my meta Squad "Incursio Ani" is rightly feared for its ability to fuk things up on the battlefield! (they once melted away a Baneblade, turn 2! )

P.S.
My camera battery is down, so...wanted to take pics this night but i've to wait until tomorrow.

Well, I might be late, but better than never updating I guess... :)
Here we go witha crapload of pics!

We begin with Krull the Conqueror, former Company Champion, now a rabid dog, sold to Khorne, leader of a barely controlled shard of the Legion. He leads the followers of the Blood God and is personally responsible of having twice halted the advance of the Dark Angels on the charred surface of Zamora I, in bloodied battles that invariably ended with Krull seeking and seizing the head of the enemy leader...
He wields the Daemonic blade Ktezva'nar a vicius being, barely controllable and with a peculiar taste for the blood of heroes....








His preffered minions are Gorr the Butcher and Petracorus, two ruthless killers, only kept at bay by Krull's

sheer ferocity.
The two Champions lead a small warband each, but when a great carnage is at the horizon they merge into a huge mob of gnarling lunatics, craving for blood. The mob will then be led by the winner of a ritual contest (usually Gorr), held moments before the real battle. Their armours still show many pink and blue coloured areas; this due the fact that many new recruits of the bands are drawn directly from outcast members of Lord Rakshar's host.













Last but not Least, the Hellbrute "Furore". Entombed within, a battlebrother centuries old, whose name has been lost and forgotten when he butchered the entire team of adepts that was to care for him, destroyng an entire section of Krull's hideout in his rage. Instead of taking him down, the Conqueror bathed him in the blood of countless servants of the Emperor, consecrating his soul to Khorne. Furore has now learned who to assail and kill, his fury tempered by many a sacrifice...but who knows when Khorne will ask for more blood and skulls and death? Will the enemy be enough, then?







Here we have a group picture of the whole Blood Cult of Krull



Then...I managed to paint some traitor guards, for my fun (and because I owe a zillion of unpainted guards)
But i'll post their pics when I've something more to show, and some more fluff concerning them.
Those guys are my current WIP: 12 cultists, painted in the most generic way I could. I used lots of base colours and then i plan to make vast use of washes and just some highlighting.
Sorry for the bad quality of the pics.







Then again...EPIC!!! Yipiieee!!! I've tried a little and this is the result.
Pink base, red wash, pink drybrush, pink+white light drybrush and then gold and wash for gold.
Not totally happy but i guess it can be ok. Any suggestions for some other quick methods??





Well..that's a quite impressive wall of pics and nerdy stuff, isn't it?
Next...the Nurgle Cult!!! (maybe..)

Critics and suggestions wanted :)

GLORY TO CHAOS!!!
