Multicoloured Chaos Marines





"Well mine's THIS big"

Since moving to Spain progress in painting has dropped to a snail's pace. Painting every model in the army differently is  interesting, but progress is f&^cking slow.

Yeah I know you've seen these before. Stop whining. There's new stuff further down.
The ongoing theme is changing; lack of bits and a desire to model has meant the marines are looking less and less 'renegade but not corrupted' and more and more 'chaotic', with iconography and skulls popping up much more often.

Go Go Chaos Rangers

Posted again only because I took better pictures.

Khorne!

Nurgle! 


Slaanesh!
Tzeentch!
Unaligned! Gooo Chaos!


This motley crew of starter set marines like to show off how edgy they are, flaunting their defiled loyalist shoulder pads while recreating the front cover of Abbey Road.


They were all walking the other way on Abbey Road, you philistine.


Ass shot


All the bases are crap, I know

This little fella was fun to paint. Sadly, like all good older models, he's short.



Continuing the Red Corsairs shoulder pad cross when I feel like it. Not really sure whether they even are Corsairs yet though, I haven't come up with any fluff.





All of the following models are waiting for autocannons and various other special weapons to be delivered and fitted. I plan on fielding these as a unit of havocs, or to just have them accompany other units.

And, a WIP of a Space Marine scout / counts as hive ganger pirate type. Still needs some highlighting, and as usual the base is crap.


He reminds me of something out of 2000AD




As usual, comments and criticism are unwelcome.






I used to imagine all of these miniatures being on the same side on the tabletop, and enjoyed the riot of colour. Does this give me grognard-veteran40ker-kudos?


To be honest, this next picture is probably just as much if not more to blame for the Attention-Deficit-Disorder paint scheme.

Ha Ha! Look at the stupid proportions! And riding into battle with a sword when their are GUNS available?
Yup, this is well 40k.  Fuck, I want a robot horse.

The illegal chinese recaster says the stuff will take about 2 weeks to arrive. I'll post what they look like when they arrive. Hopefully the resin won't cause me to explode into cancerous lesions.

You are very much a grognard mate! We could have made great Rogue Trader game together, then you went off to spain... Doh!

Anyway, your new marines are as good as the previous lot. The colour schemes are ace, I'd suggest making whole squads out of some of those schemes, into sort of 'warband squads'. Then your army could be composed of various small warbands each with their own colour scheme.

Your suggestion has set my brain fizzing! And it also justifies to my laziness at not wanting to repaint old units.

Beautiful chaosness, they remind me of the very first Chaos Marine models very much.
