View Full Version : Rahveel's chaos and other projects log (pic heavy)

10-01-2008, 09:02
so as I slowly plug away at my army, I thought I might share with ya what Im doin :)

here is my WIP Sorcerer for my fallen templars army:

Daemon Prince (waiting on me ordering some wings), really poor pics, ill get better ones as he progresses:

My Khorne lord (ive posted him before, but am quite proud of how he turned out. a new more dynamic base is in the works) terrain curtasy of my GF.

10-01-2008, 09:11
here are some side projects:

I converted/painted this Inquisitor for my brothers SM army as a Christmas presant

and this next guy is a bit special to me. some years ago my best friend (who got me into 40k) died, we had a lot of good times with 40k, but the one thing I will always remember was a marine named Eric. when my friend ordered his first box of SM's, one pair of legs was missing, un fussed he atached a spare nut (as in nuts and bolts you dirty minded ones ;p) to his torso, and declared him as having experimental bionics. well, Eric disapeared after my friend died, and I decided to do a tribute as a present to his mum.

in all his unpainted glory, I present Eric the Half Marine

a la dee dee, a one two three, Eric the Half Marine!

10-01-2008, 09:18
WOW! very cool and very nice paint job.

The paint on the inquisitor is a bit thick, but it might be the pic... anyhow, nice job.


10-01-2008, 17:11
kool! how did you do the red?

10-01-2008, 18:04
I just kind of roughly blend this formula... 50:50 mix of foundation (mecha-something) red and chaos black for the base, then a highlight of foundation red, and then a final highlight of 50:50 foundation red and blood red. it is more than just the 3 steps, but thats the main points I try to hit.

10-01-2008, 19:25
Half a Marine, philosophically,
Must, ipso facto, half not be.
But half the Marine has got to be
Vis a vis, its entity. D'you see?

But can a Marine be said to be
Or not to be an entire Marine
When half the Marine is not a Marine
Due to some ancient injury?

good day warseer's!

so I've been considering dropping my theme of fallen BT in favor of Nurgle (has always been my favorite god) but as this is a daunting task, and sets me back to square on in painting, I wanted to show some very WIP Nurgle Chosen (4 of 7). they will receive a great deal more nurglefication :)


here is also my first attempt at a nurgle Havoc w/ missile launcher.

any C&C is greatly appreciated! :)

01-02-2008, 03:44
got another nurgelized Dev done :)


01-02-2008, 04:08
magnificent! +1 for nurgle. every thing is very nice.

10-07-2008, 21:52
thread necromancy! (its mine, and I didnt want to start a new one) :P

well, its been ages.... havent goten as much finished as I would have liked, but have made some good starts on things.

decided to forget the wings on the DP, he looks cool enough w/o them (IMO), and I think he still holds wysiwyg for flight.

very happy with how he is coming, about 60% finished now. posed with some friends for scale.

finished converting the nurgle dev squad (1 ML, and 3 bolters not pictured)

been playing alot of PP as well, working on a Khador force

you may notice the lack of basing on any of the models, I am waiting to do the bases until I decide what my new gaming table will be like.

10-07-2008, 21:56
nurgle got little love... just a test sceame...

although I did start a Nurgle termi lord.

thats it for now, C&C always apricitated. will see what I can do about posting more than bi-anualy :P

10-07-2008, 22:01

I think flight works perfectly as is.

I really love the look of your army. I say stick with the fallen templars, they look great.

10-07-2008, 23:03
Looking nice. Can't wait to see more.

11-07-2008, 00:23
thanks guys!

after getting a good start on the DP, I decided to stick with the fallen templars idea, with a strong Nurgle Presance. fits with my fluff of roge templares fleeing to the Maelstrom, a warp-born deasese of some kind aflicting a large portion of the renagades. prior to the new codex (when I bought the models) I had planed to use the WB rules, but with the lack of any reason to do so in the new codex, I will include all gods. the DP will be Tz, and I will feild a unit of T-sons when I use him.

oh look... WIP T-sons....


11-07-2008, 00:32
Im glad your sticking with the fallen templar idea. Very excellent if I do say so myself.

I feel I must say your extreme highlighting on the sorcerors robe looks great. I might have to try that out myself sometime :D


11-07-2008, 06:13
Excellent work here ! Good conversions and nice painting !!
I hope to see some updates soon !:D

11-07-2008, 07:49
well, I should have all my paints unpacked tomorow, and perhaps will catch a fwe hours of painting time :)

as I am a glutton for such high praise (who honestly isnt :P) some termies.

thanks for looking and commenting!

11-07-2008, 07:55
With such wonderfuly painted and converted models, who couldnt help but comment!

And it seems this time youve taken the cake so to speak with those termies. Im simply speechless. If I had only 2 words to describ them it would be "awe inspiring". I mean each one is a work of art! Wow, im on a rant now. Anyways, great work. And please, keep up the pics :) It helps those such as I get stuff done, even if your stuff kicks my stuffs rear :D

*edit* Oh seems I never voted this thread. Which should be taken care of now.

Great conversions and painting. :)

11-07-2008, 11:33
Would like some more pics of the demon prince. Other angles. What fig is that? It looks really nice.

11-07-2008, 17:52
when he is all finished up (I am much more inspired to finish him now!) I will take some good 360 pics.

or I just will after my next session... who knows? :P

he is the necron nightbringer, with some facial details sculpted over w/ GS, the tenticle arm is from the mordheim possesed model, and the weapon head and mechandrites are from a defiler. fairly simple conversion :)

08-08-2008, 03:48
thought for *****-and-giggles i would post the new slaanesh sorcerer I converted.

19-08-2008, 07:38
well, not much done in the painting department. mostly working on rank and file, and nothing finished enough to show.

however, I was hoping to getsome feedback on my latest conversion;

Behold! Horu'Sek, Greater Daemon of Chaos Undivided! (with minion for scale)


still very WIP, just wanted to get some feedback on this guy, quite pleased myself. I am not to skilled at putty work, but its coming along better than I had hoped.

C&C welcome!

19-08-2008, 07:46
My first impression was holy s**t! After I got my jaw off the ground I thought thats the most bad ass techno demon ive ever seen. Then I started looking at the detail and the the 2nd pic. After that i kinda got confused on what its going to actually be.

I hope im right on the techno demon, but even if im wrong, I know youll make it badass whatever form it will take.


19-08-2008, 08:00
my whole army will get a good fluff write up at some point, but basic idea behind this guy is thus;

when the crusade of BT my army is split from was engaged in an extended campaign against the Word Bearers (the campaign that eventually led to their fall) a number of chaos artifacts were retrieved. lacking the tools to properly destroy them, the BT locked them away from the general populace, in their most secure vaults, until such time as they could be handed over to the proper authorities.

proper procedure was not followed, and stored in the same vault was the machine spirit of a Land Raider destroyed in the early parts of the campaign. over time, the blasphemous artifacts leached corruption into the Machine spirit, granting it a terrible and maligned intelligence. the now fully sentient machine began to build itself a new body, absorbing other machines, much like a space hulk adrift in the warp.

so yes, techno daemon :evilgrin:

19-08-2008, 08:05
Simply *********** amazing idea. Im going to have to steal the model idea, but the fluff is so good I wouldmt dare steal that.

You never cease to amaze me Ravheel. I always love checking out your log.


19-08-2008, 18:24
thanks Redstarone, I'm a big fan of your work, so I consider it high praise :)

Mr Feral
19-08-2008, 20:12
Horu'Sek is probably the most random and surreal conversion I've ever seen!

I must also say what a great job you've done on the rest, the Daemon Prince is superb and the overall theme is class.

Good work!

19-08-2008, 21:25
Wow, thanks Mr Feral, your Red Corsairs have been very inspiring to me!

Random and surreal is exactly what I was hoping for, my regular CSM's are pretty mutation free, and not to chaotic, so I really wanted my deamons to hit the opposite end of the spectrum.

:realizes he hasn't posted his lesser daemons here:


there we go! there are more, but my camera just died :P

19-08-2008, 22:09
just awesome, the fluff and models and paint.. must have more

20-08-2008, 01:31
Great stuff here. All kinds of ideas and conversions, very skillfully crafted. Kudos, sir.

20-08-2008, 04:04
Alright. Your daemons are beyond impressive. They're just so...intriguing.

Your greater daemon actually reminds me a bit of the Malice Umbral - the last boss from Shadow Hearts: From the New World

20-08-2008, 05:47
Holy wow! Inspiring to say the least. I was going to do a mixed daemon squad (as in every model different) but then I figured some rules nazi would say they were all to drastically different to count as the same thing. But now, I don't care.

20-08-2008, 20:16
To hell with them! they are daemons, of chaos no less. I checked out you'r CSM log, and you defanatly should. :)

thanks! I never actually beat Shadowhearts, do you have a pic of Malace Umbral?

@tinfoil & DesertLion
again, thank you for the praise. I have another 3 lesser Daemons I am finishing up today, Ill get them posted as soon as they are compleate.

20-08-2008, 20:28
I love the radandomness of the lesser demons. Perfect if you ask me.


20-08-2008, 21:06
You are very talented and your painting style is very unique. I want to see some more Nurgle personally, but all your guys are easy on the eye.

BarryBurton is hungry for a Chaos Sandwhich!

09-10-2008, 07:53
yay, a (small) update!

i needed 2 oblits. i dislike GW's Bits. I had 2 older plastic cold ones i have had kicking around my bits box for a few years, so they got the chaos treatment! still highly WIP, butt you can get what im goin for :)


have to say, a fair amount of insiration for these came from RS1's dark mechanicus.

The Occult
09-10-2008, 08:04
These are all amazing! I'd really like to see more pics of the techno demon - it's such a conceptual object. I love the concept, we need more strange chaos entities - everyone always gives their guys heads, arms, legs, etc you know the normal things a demon prince would have or whatever. It's refreshing to see something different!
Those are some mean looking oblits too. Wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of that.

09-10-2008, 15:23
thanks! he really was ment to be more of an 'entity' than the normal GD's, and like the rest of my army, I really wanted him to stand out in a crowd. (and with any luck, get some opponents who say "what in the hell is that??"

09-10-2008, 15:37
Sick! Twisted!
I urge you, sir, to produce and post as much as you can, before the authorities in the white lab coats arrive to tie you down and drive you off in an unmarked van.

12-10-2008, 05:24
so had a bit of an issue today...

decided to work on my 2nd daemon prince

and spent some time working on wings for him,

unfortunatly, when i got all the peices together, i found I had a slight scale issue...


sigh... ah well :P

12-10-2008, 08:46
liking the ushabti daemon prince a lot...very tzeentchy :D the mechanical wings fit the image perfectly.

12-10-2008, 10:07
some nice stuff here rahveel. i would like to ask you how easy was it to 40kify those chaos warriors, cos the idea has been swimming in the pool of conversion that is my mind. Hard to do or rather easy, any trimming needed.

13-10-2008, 03:08
a fair amount of cutting and gs'ing in most cases, but nothing to complicated :)

thanks for the comments, here are a few more pics of the DP in progress. hope you enjoy!

The Occult
13-10-2008, 03:27
Wow! I especially like the tattered cape on his back. I can't wait to see him painted.
Also, I still can't get over that floating cube. Too cool and creepy, just thinking about that thing floating around eerily on the battlefield.

13-10-2008, 03:32
This is amazing stuff. Consider me subscribed. Forever.

13-10-2008, 04:16
Frikkin rad, loving that greater daemon too :)

13-10-2008, 05:36
Very awsome work. I especialy love your terminators and deamons. That big ball of techno goo reminds me of some crazy Beholder type creature :P And on behalf of all Tomb Kings players, I'm glad you did the Ushabti model justice :D Though I'de love to see those wings back on him. Even if they touch the ground that's ok, it just like they would normaly when thair really big, kind of drag along behind him slightly.

13-10-2008, 10:07
The new deamon prince is great! Its something i've never seen before, great use of bits Rahveel!
Keep up the freaky stuff!

13-10-2008, 10:50
I really love the tattered robes on the back.

Im also really glad to see the big guy back. I cant wait to see where to go when painting that thing. It truley is a thing of chaos and again, like I said before, probably the best chaos thing ive seen made.


Mr Feral
13-10-2008, 12:04
A smooth collection of Daemons in that last picture, the Green Stuff cloak turned out really well on the second Daemon Prince. :)

13-10-2008, 12:09
im loving that big mass of techno demon! i can only assume it attacks by falling on me O.O

13-10-2008, 16:59
Not to be a fanboi here but I can't help but look at your techno demon and think " We are Borg, resistance is futile, prepare to be assimilated ". Don't get me wrong, it's a class looking conversion [ one I might pinch/yoink for an upcoming Ad Mech detachment I'm brewing up at a later date] and I'm actually quite fond of it.

I'm glad to see someone else has discovered what I've most recently come to learn. That there is this place, you can find it once you shed convention, and your brain takes a walk off of the map. Only there can you find this kind of inspiration.

I'm impressed by your GS-fu, converting, & painting all the way around. Kudos to you sir.


19-11-2008, 19:03
OK. no more pretense. who knows when this log will be updated. obviouslt I just cant keep to a scedual, and i spend way to much time converting, not enough painting.

anywho, here are some more WIP's for ya. appologies for the bad pics, i am using a new camera.

Kharn (or cheap khorne lord)

the tzeentchian DP (far from compleate, the tendrils and cloth will be filled out to give it a more cloak like look)

another khorne lord, this time on a steed.

19-11-2008, 19:06
and finaly, my GD. all finished apart from the eye detail (another day or 2 of work)

20-11-2008, 02:21
your army looks great! I love your work with the green stuff! i give you two thumbs up! :D

20-11-2008, 02:38
that is one intense mass of mutating maddness. Bet its going to be hard to paint, looks good though.

20-11-2008, 02:59
You've got some really cool stuff going on in here. I love your palette too. Simply awesome!

20-11-2008, 11:13
Awesome stuff!

The Ushabti Demon Prince is amazing.

The Greater Demon is creeping me out. Good work.

Can't wait to see them painted.

26-11-2008, 20:01
thanks for the comments! (sorry I didnt reply sooner, RL likes to distract me)

the ushabti daemon prince needs a lot of work still. I am not yet close to being happy with his cloak, but I like the direction it is going.

and yes.. the greater daemon is going to be an unholy terror to paint...
speaking of painting, Kharn has had a good start, but cannot be shown yet as he is my entry for the throneofskulls.com painting competition (c'mon khorn lords, get yer entries in!) http://www.throneofskulls.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=135
