i got cadian battle force for free, and since im currently playing chaos i wanted to make it in to renegade army. But problem is how to acheive the look of the renegade army with minimum of fuss. So any simple conversion or any idea of what i should do?

Add chaos stars, icons and skulls. Remove all those eagle icons of the false emperor and you should be good!

i would agree with captain korea but if you are good with green stuff then add gasmasks and goggles and stuff like that

You can also add your chaos bits to them.

I'm going to say, check my project log (first one in my sig) and you might pick up an idea or two. I agree with what everyone else has said so far, but make sure to remove ALL the Imperial iconography. Scratched up armour and plae skin tones look good too.

Here are some (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=160228214389&ssPageName=STRK:MESO:IT&ih=006) Chaos Cadians using Pig Iron (http://www.pig-iron-productions.com/) heads.

You can also mix up catachan and cadian models. Maybe pick up a box or two of the zombie regiment and/or better yet, the chaos norse regiment to mix in.
"trophies" and kill markings are also good to add. Maybe mix up the lasguns from the different plastics or even autoguns. Use chaos bolters/pistals for the serg. conversions and even ork weapons look good in "chaos" hands and painted to match. A matter of find ork players with the old melta/plasma guns that used to come with them. I would say that renegades would have less self preservation so would use plasma much more then reguler gaurd.

Yeah go with pig iron.

I just got a ton of them for my stealer cultists, they do some nice retro gas mask heads too.

The only problem I found with them is the sprue, which is very chunky and it took a dremmel buzz saw to get them off reliably. Worth the effort though.

(BTW), some of the figures in templar bens link pics are kolony militia.

Always find armies in Imperial colours but with the Aquila's removed and/or daubed over with chaos icons looks the best.

the easiest modelling option is for your army to be a recently 'turned' IG regiment, so they mostly still have all their old equipment and uniforms etc. Old IG symbols will have been removed, broken, defaced by overpainting with chaos symbols. The HQ units would be most likely to have any flash new chaos weapons, banners etc, and most likely to have been 'blessed' with any mutations

Basic spiky bits and unregular gear (mix of catachans and cadians is a good mix) is the easiest way to go for a general look if you don't want anything fancy. Bitz stores are a good source for Chaos icons and other bits.

If you're looking for something more specific, like Slaaneshi stuff, a box of the new plastic daemonettes is for you. There's like 17 heads and those claws can be used for mutations (vets or something?). Not to forget all the banners and such. WHFB Beastman Ungor stuff is probably a good thing too to have. Maybe some Chaos Marauders as well.

Try to make them look dirtier and more battle scarred. Put a few bloodstains on their armour or clothes. Chaos dudes don't spend a lot of time cleaning themselves.

Unless they're Slaanesh?

Hey,


i wanted to make it in to renegade army

Using the IG dex?


how to acheive the look of the renegade army with minimum of fuss

The minimum? Paint their uniforms red.
Google "Vraks PDF" and "Blood Pact" for ideas.

Good luck, and have fun!

Well now, it depends. Most Chaos fanatics are not the organized type, but there are also Chaos armies that do uphold some form of uniformity and all that. So conscripts could very well be modelled with great variety in gear and style, presenting fanatics rounded masses, maybe even slaves and prisoners, where as veterans and stormtroopers would be far better equipped and surely more uniformal apart from personal trinkets.

The simplest way is just to paint them an evil looking colour scheme, remove all eagles and imperial symbols with a sharp knife, paint their skin a really pale unhealthy colour maybe, stick some body parts and grisly trophies to the tanks and maybe some of the officers, and you are away. I don't think part swapping needs to be done at all.

Beastmen sprue, especially ungor heads looks good. And banners, lots of banners. The fantasy chaos boxes comes with approx. 4 banners per unit (warriosr/marauders) so getting a few out of any decent player wouldn't be so hard.
