Thought I'd start a log of what I'm getting upto after I started a new project when I realised how many bits I had lying around!
Suppose I best start with the mandatory pic of where I do my 'work'

When I first started my army was way back in 2nd edition when the chaos codex dropped and white dwarf used to print rules, fell in love with all the characters. Abbaddon was a monster! Think his save was 2+ on 2d6!!
I was also young and couldn't afford much so apart from birthdays and Christmas's I didn't have much of a force. it was the plastic zerker kits in 3rd coinciding with me leaving school and starting work that sealed my pact with chaos, khorne in particular.
As I started collecting my local GW had recently moved store and had a huge gaming room upstairs (newcastle) and was holding a tournament for 40k. So I needed to make sure everything I was gonna use was painted, my paint scheme was bad to say the least, basically chucked gold and silver on a undercoated model and based it with sand - done. Ended up just sticking with this scheme for convenience up until I left the hobby shortly after the abysmal 4th edition codex dropped and only played fantasy.
It was when the rumours started flying around for a new chaos dex in late 2011 I got back into 40k and I started the big repaint in anticipation.
Did find these models the other day so I figured I'd start with showing how bad they used to be!

When I got back into 40k my brother wanted to enter a doubles tournament, think it was 750pts each so I started to repaint my collection. Can't remember what was exactly in my list anymore but I basically repainted two squads of zerkers, kharn, bought the new plastic daemon prince with wings instead of repainting the old metal one, couldn't be bothered to repaint the defiler so I just did some of the armour plates on it and I also did my two obliterators.

Both banners got broken when I didn't realise it made them too tall for the draw I was keeping them in. It also broke the arms off the champ 😞
Will fix them soon ( been saying that for months )

173520

173521

Left the base plain as I was/still intending to get the space marine casualties and stick one on the base in my brothers space wolf colours

173522

Just lazy, and left a lot of the black undercoat all over it.

173523

Two oblits, shock horror - no mark of nurgle.

Can't remember what else was in the doubles list but around the same time I did my two dreadnoughts, possessed - always liked using these, despite there points cost being a bit too much. They were the first conversions/kit bashing I ever did and I remember wanting to repaint them as soon as I finished the first two squads.

Next I did my raptors

173527

Another squad of zerkers

173528

And started on the old metal terminators, only got as far as six of them. Will get the other two done...

173529

Also decided to convert up some autocannon havocs.

173530

Also manage to get four spawn done, was expecting them to improve with the new codex and boy was I right

I didn't realise I made a mistake when I was doing my land raider and picked up the wrong ink and pretty much ruined it

173532

Wasn't bothered about the front hatch, intended to get Forgeworld ones.

It was around now the new codex dropped, load of crap. 6th killed combat then the codex killed zerkers. Not a happy bunny.
Decided to get a few reinforcements despite still having loads of stuff to paint.
Ended up getting a heldrake

That's pretty much me upto date, still got a lot of older stuff that's need a re-paint. Think I have around 7000pts in total.
When I was going through all my bits boxes recently I recently I had a lot of stuff to start a few ideas I had buzzing around in my head.
Want to start two small forces, one will be pre heresy worldeaters and the other will be actual heresy era, as they turned.
Gaming wise I'm not sure figured one of two options. Until each force is big enough to play on there own I could utilise the allies rules and have the pre heresy as space marines. Then the heresy ones as allied space wolves or some other battle brother.
Or just use them both with my existing army as chaos marines with different marks.
Anyway managed to get a couple of testers done over the weekend.

173538

Pre heresy

173539

And mid heresy.

173540

And here, the three stages of the worldeaters

Whilst doing my testers the drop pod I ordered (two weeks ago - damn you dark sphere) which I planned on using to make a dreadclaw with for my regular worldeaters, this is it so far.173541

Nice to see Khorne getting some attention :-) When your taking pictures of the models can you bring them a little close to the camera? Unfortunately I can't quite see enough of the detail on the minis.

Worldeaters

Will do, all the older models with the white background were deliberately taken far away so they would fit in a square for my Instagram account. Shall start with better close ups.

Gonna try something, see how this is.

Edit:
Nah, didn't work. Nevermind, will redo some tomoro

Think I've managed to zoom in on the pictures a bit better and saved them.

Also got three more plastic terminators built to go with the other five to make a squad of eight.

173567

Not overly concerned about the weapon loadouts at the moment, still have another squad of eight to build then ill make final decisions on equipment then.

When I was thinking I might use two different imperial books as allies to represent my pre-heresy and heresy era worldeaters I realised I enough spare bits to knock up a thunder hammer and storm shield terminator.

These came today, worked out at around 3.50 for 100 of them so I thought "why not" can use them for characters wargear, boon roles etc. also could be to keep a track of sorcerers powers etc if I didn't get them with worldeaters all over them!

Cheers man, not had time to get much done recently but have just ordered my plasticard yesterday. Hope it arrives for the weekend.

Managed to do a bit today on the heresy terminator. All the red and browns are done, a little bit left on the skulls, but only base coated the metals.

Will have him done for tomoro hopefully.

Pretty much finished the first terminator, just the odd little highlight which I'll hopefully get round to during the week.
Not happy with the silvers, its the first time I've used Vallejo air chrome (put on with a brush) after running out of old boltgun metal and chainmail, and even after the oil down I think it looks way to shiney. Not happy with it. Probably redo them someway when I highlight the skulls.

The old shrine of khorne scenery from Forgeworld. forgot I had this, dunno whether to paint it or eBay it. Think the pic has a couple of pillars missing but I know I've got them aswell, just out of shot.

how the **** do you change the thread title?

I think you have to do it by editing the first post.

That said, good work here, some cool kitbashing!

Just tried that but no luck, cheers tho. Think I read somewhere about only being able to change log titles by messaging a moderator bit that was from a search that was dated 2009.
Never mind.

Kit-bashed this quad gun using the defiler flail arm, some random bits, bike handle bars and radar screen with the hades autocannons from the fiend kit

174868

Already undercoated so you can't quite see everything, but not bad for a load of spare bits. Made the defence line from the chaos tank accessories spikes. Realised pretty much as I was making them that I didn't like them but I just don't like using the imperial one and it will do until I make a better one.

Just PM a mod with the request for renaming. They're usually highly friendly and it's no big deal.

Also, looking very nice, though pics are on the small side.

Cheers man, I think I even surprised myself with how well those bits ended up slotting together rather nicely.
Shame about the defence line, need to come up with something else for that in the near future.

Forgot I made these.

175234

These was when I was probably playing once a week and I was starting to get really bored of the codex, not that it was brilliant to begin with. Also probably what drove me to start the other two worldeaters forces.
I could use these to display the mark that each unit had whilst still keeping all my red models on the table and also to help my opponent (and myself) aware of what mark a unit might have in the heat of battle before making any important decisions etc

Worldeaters
29-07-2013, 20:54
Made a kind of chosen/command squad with a few fancy bits on them even tho some of them would have no gaming purpose, always end up feeling like they missed out on so many things with the latest codex.

175332 175333

175334

Decided to slice the banner bearers helmet off and will but a bare head on instead.

Worldeaters
29-07-2013, 20:59
Forgot about these two aswell, took the pic when I first built them ages ago.

175335

Don't really want to paint any of these till I get my airbrush sorted, so will probably just stick these to one side for now.
