I have started a new renegate space marine army some time ago. Its based on the new chaos list and has some funky little chaos twists in it :p. But it remains a renegate army, so there are no mutations, funky chaos spawns or other strange things in it (expect for some deamons perhaps but they will not come in the near future).

I have finished some units, let me know what you think about it.

Real nice painting and conversion work :D

I really like those dark angel models, have you thought about maybe converting a chaos lord to Cypher, leading the army? :rolleyes:

Wow, amazing renegades! The painting is absolutely fantastic, especially the freehand on the shoulder pads (from what I can see). The purple armour looks excellent too.:)

I'd love to see this army progress, will you be doing a project log on these chaps?

Those look awesome! i like the conversion work on the bikes, and cypher would be interesting.
Also from all the units you've mentioned are in this you could play them as regular SM if need be (troops,bikes, assault and pred)

thx people for the comment, I'm going to make this a log i think, dunno if this is the right place but it can always be moved...

and about 'renegate'... it was a long day for me too and I only saw it after I submitted the thread :(

Even though I've seen them in real life, I'll say it once more...Good job ^^. These models are a great improvement since your guard. Too bad you couldn't finish them for the GT.

Cheers,

Looks really good.

Not "really good", they look ace, simple as that. The purple, to me, looks like it has a very natural highlighting without it being, you know... natural light.

Also, the biker holding the axe is probably one of the sleekst conversions I've seen in a long time, excellent if you ask me

I found a pic of the 'chapter' marking i want to give my marines.

The normal marines wil get a smaller version on there leg armour. Still have to work on that tho, its a lot of work :p

eek - nice chapter marking, but replicating it dozens of times will be hard - unless you deliberately give each marine a slightly different version?

as Dugaal suggest above, with a little care you'll have an army you can _mostly_ alternatively play using the loyalist marine rules, which is always good value and stops you getting bored.

the purple is excellent, which colours and highlighting did you use?

Franzz
17-10-2007, 22:34
main colour is lich purple, build up out of a 50-50 dark angel green - lich purple base. Highlights are lich purple mixed with bleached bone.

hadn't thought of using green as a base for purple, but yeah, I can see how it works

I am loving them robes and your freehand on that shoulder pad is top drawer

Franzz

a little update, the predator is practicly finished, perhaps another marking somewhere but my insperation ran dry so that will have to wait :p

the heavy bolters are magneticly attached to the predator so they can turn and be removed and replaced with lascannons

Looking good :). Once again good job on the freehands, simple yet very effective. Could have done a better job with highlighting the black parts, but this is good tabletop quality.

Cheers,

Finished a biker last week, the two other bikers still have to be painted though. The raptors are almost ready, still need to base them but i ran out of city of dead pieces so that will have to wait :(
