View Full Version : Heretic12's - Chaos, Ork: Painting Sucks Log

23-10-2007, 21:46
WARNING: Exstensive ramblings in this thread. Some will have follow through some wont, Im not really good with stuff like this. Cheers anyways.

Well after much deliberation I have decided that my Second army would be a band of 13th Company/Space Wolf renegades using the new Chaos Dex. My first and primary army is Orks, currently at 3k points but bound to drop substantially with the new codex. I suppose this log will start off with my Chaos and work its way into my Orks with time, especially since there will be alot of work to be done come December/January.

With out further hesitation and BS, I give to you the basis for my Umbra Wolves (Not origional I know and infact I may have seen the name somewere before if so my apologies for swiping your force tag, since its merely superficial I will gladly change it need be).

Winged Lord {Painted/Varnished}

NOTE: You dont have to read the crap following this as it will most likely not be in a proper gramatical format, let alone make any sense. It entales some bits and pieces of fluff to shine some light on whats going on in the pack. Scroll down to get to more relevant info on the log.

After Millenia wandering around the warp trying to fufill their mission, long since run out of fresh supplies and gear, faceing the wrath of warp energies mutating their already unstable genetics, forced to survive off what they kill in battle, excomunicated from the ranks of the astartes for displaying traits not deemed worthy of being called Marines, they have taken it upon themselves to attain vengence against their brethren, the emperor and the inquisition.

[The names of these boys has long since been lost in the librarys of the emperium buried under thousands of years of war and bloodshed, that with my combined lack of knowledge pertaining to the naming styles of Space Wolves (Nordic/Viking-esque naming ya?) they wont be getting any despite what other fluff I pitch.]

The true Wolf Lord of this pack is the PoLC Termi Champion, though after so many years of battle fatigue hes lost all resemblance of sanity. Two prized Chosen, who were both competeing for the second seat of power, took it upon themselves to mutiny against their Lord. Putting our poor senile Lord under the care of a pack of Wolf Guard who after so many long years have been left to wear Chaotic armors. Though in the heat of battle our once sane lord no longer gives orders and simply rushes into the fray, with the Guard following him in hopes of keeping him alive for one more battle, for failure would most deffinatly toll a high price for the pack.

During a raid on a Space Wolf compound, in desperate need of Ammo and fresh wargear, our Wolf Lord stumbled upon a close friend of his now entombed in a Dreadnaught. After a good long scrap our Dreadnaught has joined the warband. Earning a place of Honor among the pack.

During the Millenia the pack has had what can only be described as Ghost Wolves take a shine to them. When ever the tide of battle takes a turn for the worst a pack of them never fail to appear and help sway it back into favorable conditions. They are neither Daemons nor living Wolves, possibly they are a manifestation of some hidden Psychic energies calling on the warp in times of great peril. The pack neither cares nor complains as their spirit friends have save their asses many times over in the heat of battle.

I will be using the Mark of Khorne to some extent as a replacement to Mark of the Wulfen, showing their animalistic instincts taking over. Though as such with out much thought to it, the blood god has taken a liking to them as well, they have primarily taking their replacement gear from the dead among berserkers and other Khornate followers.

During their previous raid on the space wolf compound they managed to secure it as their own. Since some marines still look like their loyalist counterparts they have easily managed to slide under the radar and even recieve ammo and supplies directly from loyalist lines. They have since built a portal with which they can escape through at any time into the eye of terror were they have yet another base established. They are well on their way to becoming a force to be rekoned with.


Whew anyways as for color scheme I am going with a slightly modified version of the "Dark Wolves" scheme from page 24 of the Chaos Dex. Using Vellejo German Grey as the Primary and a 50/50 Vellejo German Grey and Sky Blue as trim.

The starting of this force came from combining Space Wolf and a Chaos battleforce. Thrown in a Space Marine Commander box, a Terminator Lord box and a box of Devastators (Though the Devastator box has seen little use.) With the changed to chaos infantry I wanted to use a primarily troop based/walking force, no heavy tanks so there will be no Vindicator/Defiler/Land Raider etc. Following a slightly Sisters of battle aproach to close range warfare I have chosen to use alot of meltas and some flamers. Also included alot of Combi Meltas in the works as well.

Thats all for now, I will be putting up pictures of everything I have done so far tonight. Ill be buying the last of the stuff I need in the next couple of weeks. With any luck this log and yall on Warseer will be able to keep my moving as a semi-decent pace to finishing this army and get to stomping around the table. During the absence of my greenskins.

-Heretic of the 12th variety-

That termi lord is frikkin awesome, loving it so far. I hate all these blingy shiny bright chaos armies, your guys look dark and menacing, pretty much tempting me to collect a small chaos force.

I'll be keeping an eye on this one methinks.

25-10-2007, 20:32
Update (10/25) - No pics this time around, Ive nearly finished the Termi Champ. I need to do a once over for touch ups and the like then paint his base and hes good to go.

However Ive hit a slight snag, Outside of the 20 Ghost Wolves Im not sure if I should get the rest of it. Though if I didnt I have no Idea what I would replace them with.

Without the Terminators and Dreadnaught it frees up 450 points. What would you add with 450 points? Oh and trying to stick with using light tanks only (Primarily Rhinos). I have 10 Marines left, though at the moment I dont have the Special weapons to make a full squad. I could bits order one however so I guess keep in mind 10 Marines.

Update (10/25 #2) - I went and picked up my Dreadnaught, 2x Boxes of Goblin Wolf Riders, and a Box of Terminators. Everything is built and ready to go. Tommorow I will base everything with sand, and start Primering. Also as soon as a chance arises I will finish my Termi Champ (Lord) as well as my second winged lord. My folks took off to visit some of their friends in Arizona for the weekend so I will be without a decent camera until Monday. So till Monday I will just post up with typed updates followed by a mass of progress pics when I get the chance.

Im probably babbling to myself but heres a thought I had while building up my terminators. Earlier today I stumbled across a blog on here were the mate built some real badass kits for his Vindicators and Defiler. It got me thinking and this is a rough outline of what it entales (I mean rough, my skills at planning are pathetic, as are they at drawing, and its MS Paint) As this army is gunna be something of a Space Wolf force I figure a nice center piece should come into play. Taking this army up to 2500 with a Wolf-esque predator or two. It kinda voids my point of following the Space Wolf FOC but if I follow through I see it easily being a worthwhile endevor.

The image itself explains some bits but thats about as far as I got. Keeping to a canine physiology (uh big word, spellings probably wrong maybe even use /shrug) Depending on what I want to use for the shoulder sponsons Sentinel legs would look abit to weedy even if I bulked them out. Maybe something like a Dread body with a Defiler body attached to the back, possibly cut defiler arms as legs?

If anyone has any skill with stuff like this, I would do my best to not let your work go to waste and follow through with it. Maybe pictures of something similar. When I think about it I get the image of one of the Canine types from Zoids long ago.

Painted the second winged lord and finished the terminator champ. Again I dont have a Camera till Monday/Tuesday so look forward to a large selection of Pictures. Today I will start work on the rhinos and dread.

06-11-2007, 00:26
Well abit late with the update but they are here, Since the last post Ive done both Rhinos, one pack of wolves, finished my termi lord, second winged lord and dreadnaught.

Start off with my Termi Lord:

I thought about putting a red chaos star on his left shoulder pad and loincloth but Im afraid of trashing my already shoddy work.
http://img129.imageshack.us/img129/1212/finishedlordfrontux2.th.jpg (http://img129.imageshack.us/my.php?image=finishedlordfrontux2.jpg)

His cloak, primarily just a few layers of drybrush, I like it though Im not sure it actually goes with the grey color scheme.

Also in this post is the Dreadnaught:

Next up we have the Winged Lord:

Front, since his helmet/face is of such low detail I just did a split color scheme on it. Somewhat to seem like the face forming on his chest was his real one.
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/5694/wingedlordfront1nd0.th.jpg (http://img210.imageshack.us/my.php?image=wingedlordfront1nd0.jpg)

His Combi-Melta, couldnt decide on what to do for the bolter colors so I just went with Gunmetal Grey with some like Brown/Chestnut/Black ink washes.
http://img106.imageshack.us/img106/5570/wingedlordside1ze8.th.jpg (http://img106.imageshack.us/my.php?image=wingedlordside1ze8.jpg)

His Back, nothing special the chain is supposed to be somewhat of a devils tail, the back of the wings are a darker shade of grey with the fronts being a pinkish grey.
http://img106.imageshack.us/img106/6748/wingedlordback1aj5.th.jpg (http://img106.imageshack.us/my.php?image=wingedlordback1aj5.jpg)

Also in this post we have one of the ghost wolves:

I am not happy with the way the pack came out, Im thinking of trying a grey wash/glaze over em all if I just dont strip them and go for a more traditional Brown living wolf looking scheme.

We have the rhino, I only shot one of them as both are pretty much identical. It seems to be lacking any detail I wanted to freehand some runes/symbols on it but was lacking the confidence to try it. Though I do like how the couple I did on the dread came out I may try it later on.

http://img255.imageshack.us/img255/2206/rhino1md2.th.jpg (http://img255.imageshack.us/my.php?image=rhino1md2.jpg)

Top - Was thinking of doing a red wolves symbol on the top doors, or a large chaos star or something.
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/4457/rhino2zo3.th.jpg (http://img210.imageshack.us/my.php?image=rhino2zo3.jpg)

Last but not least the WIP of my bikers - Again I only shot one as all three are close to the same. Ill take a group shot when I finish them.

http://img145.imageshack.us/img145/1429/bikewipth0.th.jpg (http://img145.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bikewipth0.jpg)

Also I changed the main list alittle in the OP. Or will at least once Im done typing this.

21-11-2007, 02:41
Well I suppose Ive been neglecting this log, but earlier today I had the itch to start painting and finished off one of the rhino squads and the second squad of wolves. I redid my first winged lord, as well as finished the three bikers.

The first squad - These are for the most part WIP, Ill probably add some runes/chaos stars etc.
