I'm loving that Dreadnought. The conversions on it actually seem more fitting rather than woohoo we're chaos with uniform spikes!

18-01-2007, 00:44
What colour are you going to do your Beserkers?

dark red? like shiny ?

18-01-2007, 04:12
I thought that a random pattern was more fitting for anything chaotic

I am just painting the weapons, shoulder pads, and helmets red, scab, then red gore, then blood red followed by black ink mixed with 'ardcoat, it gets a finish that I like

18-01-2007, 04:31
I really dig the look of your army, very black legion! My only criticisms are with the list; it feels like you don't have enough infantry. That could be the Word Bearers/IG general within me talking though. I use bloodletters and I know how hard they shred troops.

24-01-2007, 04:00
this is just a tough preliminary sketch of the banner, comments, criticisms, anything you would change?


24-01-2007, 13:42
Let me say I like your list a lot, and massive cred for taking over 10 CSM in those squads! Painting is looking good so far too, and your banner sketch looks solid. Only thing there is that maybe the banner color is too light for chaos / the rest of your army, perhaps a darker brown would have been better?

VainEnd, I'm really liking the look of your army at this point. I'll be watching this one...

24-01-2007, 17:06
I was thinking about switching the desert yellow for terracotta or graveyard earth,

24-01-2007, 17:30
About the Berzerkers' banner, the sketch shows a World Eater symbol (mouth with the planet inside), which is out of place on Black Legionnaires.

My suggestion would be the eye of Horus symbol maybe, as the banner pole itself already incorporates the mark of Khorne.

27-01-2007, 03:39
I'm designing it in this style because I want a banner that I can use for an actual world eaters army (that will be a later project), but seeing as how the banner is removable, who said I cant do both? :p

Hello all, sorry it's been so long since my last post, but I'v been busy with school and work, but I finally had some time to paint so here is a pic of my nearly finished Berzerkers


02-03-2007, 23:17
Still looking good. Nice clean painting despite your real life getting in the way of the toy soldiers! :p

You have given me some ideas for a Chaos Dreadnought as well... I may have to start a new army...

Keep up the good work!

03-03-2007, 23:44
Nice looking berserkers bro.

Our deadline is going to kill us.

08-05-2007, 04:46
Here is my latest painting, one squad of marines finished! one more to go, and a squad of bloodletters, and my command, my defiler, and my dread!

I changed up my list a bit but I dont feel like typing that right now so that will probably come tomorrow

08-05-2007, 04:48
You've got to get more light on those suckers.

08-05-2007, 04:57

So I had a request for better pics of my marine squad, and I now have some.





28-05-2007, 04:06
I've been thinking about changing my list...again. I think I'm going to drop my defiler and one bloodletter and take a havoc squad, I had the bits to make one small squad. Some old space marines, Simple Greened, a bit of green stuff, some bits, and presto a havoc squad. Here are some WIP pics.



This is my first real attempt at sculpting green stuff, the arm isn't finished yet I want to bulk up the shoulder and make it look like some of the power armor was broken as the mutant arm emerged


I am also working in a khorne lieutenant, I had a kharn the betrayer model but didn't like it too much so I got to working on it. I replaced the plasma pistol with a bolt pistol, I also ground off the tassel like things that were coming off of his cheeks (they looked really stupid IMO and makes the helmet look much better, and ground off the axe; I am going to replace it with a power weapon. I have a large sword and am going to add an axe like extension onto the top end to make it look more khorneish.


30-05-2007, 15:20
Gotta say your models look MUCH better in the clearer pics! Nice bright topknots, and the hazard stripe on the flamer end is good stuff. I like the GS arm on the lascannon havok, well done and a good idea. Always good to see Kharn get some loving / hacking, and I like where the havok AC is headed.

Just real quick like, you seen the new Chaos rumors? I'm in denial myself, and purposefully building up things that are going to be axed come Sept :evilgrin:


- Salvage

31-05-2007, 02:04
I really like some of the rumors but others... like no more bloodlettes? I really dont like that at all, oh well what shal come will come, I am actually really looking forward to the new ork 'dex, that's my next 40k army, but after this I am going to be doing a WFB Slaaneshi chaos army but I have to finish this one first

10-06-2007, 19:58
here is a quick pic of my termi lord's cape, I used the new Mechrite red for it's base, and I must say that it is awesome, I really like the foundation paints.


11-06-2007, 23:28
I think I'm finally finished my lascannon havoc, the arm looks better IMO with a bulkier shoulder


12-06-2007, 14:35
like the lascannon mutation you've done there but as a chaos legion I would scrape that imperial eagle off sharpish! lol :D

12-06-2007, 23:22
I'm not going to scrape it of totally, but I'm going to gouge it and make it look desicrated

24-06-2007, 21:48
Well due to the up and comming release of new chaos I am puting my army on hold for a while, I will be painting what I have a bit but I am going to focus on a fantasy army for a while when I do get something painted I will make posts but untill then and the new release I am not going to focus on 40k.

26-06-2007, 04:52
Well I was waiting for some primer to dry and I thought I'd work on my khorne lieutenant. I used a weapon from my WFB Warriors and a shield for added flare.


I mand the banner removable by pin-viceing into the models backpack.


30-06-2007, 01:58
K , that simply sucks.

hhhhahaha JK JK! Thats awesome bro I love the look . Much better version of Kharn really..

25-08-2007, 03:39
