View Full Version : Ian chaos coats of many colours

02-11-2006, 13:46
Good afternoon.

This log will be for my slaanesh marines and armour. Painting and converting mainly.

I have not yet played the game but hopefully that will change.

So far I have one squad - nearly painted
One squad - to paint
One lord - to paint
ten Terminators - see above
One painted raider, one painted pred
one unpainted (converted) rhino

I am going to convert a russ for my slaanesh men too.

Unfortunatly, i have no photos to show you until tonight but I will post a couple of pics from last year
Scratch built battlewaggon which I built for my son

Some random kroot.
I was going to start an army for them but got distracted.

Good luck with your project, sir. :) Also, I dig the battlewagon, it reminds me of 2nd Ed. 40k, minus the checker-board pattern.

02-11-2006, 19:41
The wagon is really ace, looks very good.

Please remember to post pics of your progress :)

Thank you for the kind words.

With the first batch (All four of them) I tried something different. The models were inked up first and then the colour was drybrushed on.
I didn't quite work out the way I expected. Never mind, anyway, I went back to my old way of prime/base colours/ ink wash and dry brush.
This bloke is awaiting his dry-brush.
I'm gonna do the lord next.

A bloke from the first batch went AWOL, I suspect the dog ate him.
Whilst I'm painting up the lord, I can post a pic of the Predator, the colour scheme is the same as the marines.
If you can call it a scheme, My friend suggested that I was tripping when I picked the colours, he also said if I decided to go for something a little less violent to the old eye balls, just vomit on them.

er, yeah...anyway. I'll post the pred tommowow.

that looks very nice the bases look a bit bland tho.

02-11-2006, 23:48
I was going to change the bases at a later date Ziljin. They are a bit green and boring arn't they.

Like they are standing on a bowling green or something. Chaos warriors standing on a bowling green... It just sounds all wrong.

I'll probably go from an urban theme for the bases.

This is my Predator. There are some areas on the vehicle that still need painting up.

05-11-2006, 11:54
Sorry, I have just noticed that the tank still has the khorne (I think) icon on the side, next to the exhaust, this has been removed.

05-11-2006, 13:04
Theres also a nurgle symbol on the top of the tank.
Rest looks good though, I think i prefer the tank to your infantry at the moment, it seems to have a cleaner colour.

Have you ever seen of a Slaanesh Leman Russ? I know I'm new to the game but when I asked the previous question at the local GW shop, they looked at me strangely.

I've looked on the net as well and I found clues and vague referances to such a machine but never an actual picture.


I decided to make one.

This is the turret.

The body will follow when I've done it?

Comments (good and bad) welcome.

I love it! How did you achieve the rough texture? Just some flock before painting?

10-11-2006, 11:42
I sprayed it and while it was still wet, I threw some salt on it.

That turret looks like it has some awful STD. Poking aound to many unfamiliar places it seems...

Congratulations, that's disgusting...

The salt might absorb water from the air and wreck your paintjob if it's not well sealed. I'd recommend sand or something a little more inert for that kind of thing.

Roll a die each turn. On a 1, it will fall off. Counts as weapon destroyed.

Very interesting army. Not exactly my tastes, but then again I'm a huge fan of the classic pink/black. Bold of you to try something new, though - keep it up!

Update time.

This is one of the sides.


I've redesigned the turret to allow more of the original body to show.

16-11-2006, 22:15
It's finished.

What do you think?

Keep to that colour scheme for the whole army, unlike the rest, which is real explosion in paint factory style, that looks pretty coherent, and damn fun too.
