View Full Version : Kraal chaos.."Horde"

19-08-2007, 15:16
'ello everyone.
Since i REALLY need to keep myself motivated 'bout painting my chaos marines i thought i'd start a log :D
Bear in mind that there won't be any piccies 'til the end of the week (stealing my girlfriends cam takes time :angel: )

What i have so far is:
A bunch of HQs (count later on) (1 sorc almost finished)
ca ~ 32(ish) marines with CC waepons and BP (2 painted) 1 missile launcher,2 flamers, 2 plasma guns, 3 asp.champs , 3 hvy bolters, 1 autocannon
1 predator with hvy bolters and autocannon (needs remodelling)

And a ton of bits^^

The scheme will be black with white highlights on edges and where i think it looks cool with blood(ish) text in places, lords may have more colours depending on mark.
I might highlight one colour more depending on mark on troops aswell, but for now everyone is tzeentch.

May write som fluff later on if groove is found.

-End Transmission-
All hail the gods of glory!

Okey, no piccies still, my gf does seem a bit ti attached to the damn camera, and i'm sinking into a deep D&D addiction.. But i have painted! Almost finsihed the sorc and a converted around a bit..

Sad, i know

25-08-2007, 11:57
Well .. .. PICS! My WIP Sorceror 'o' Tzeentch

Ok i just relised that pics suck :(
Will try better later..

25-08-2007, 12:02
Hurray for Log!!! aww, piccies is blurred... :(

Edit: I can sort of make out whats going on and I have to say it looks like a great conversion and the robes are painted very well... but still blurry... :evilgrin:

25-08-2007, 12:14
Tried to fix the piccies but still a bit blurry, will take more later on^^

25-08-2007, 12:16
The second pic makes me concerned as to where that tentacle is coming from :eek:

k bit tip on taking pics, turn off flash and try to put ur camera resting on something so that it has less chance of moving and making it blured like i did in my log, the link is in my signiture, and also try to find a place with fluro lights its make the pics come out better and reflects the detail better without being to bright, once agin check my log for the results

25-08-2007, 14:01
Merceus @ Indeed, i was worried myself for a while :evilgrin:

zeek jr. @ I actually did all that, the camera was resting on the desk and i had no flash, the bright light si from my nearby desk-lamo , might not use that next time..

25-08-2007, 14:32
The only painted members of my army that are finished :D

NOTE: Highlights look better in real life, lighting kinda kills it..

25-08-2007, 15:50
Hey! You got it working! Looks cool... and you're right, we do paint similar :p keep it going!

Edit: Though your shadows in the way a bit :p

25-08-2007, 16:33
Almost done necromancer^^
Some kind of chaos lord.. (repaint imminent)
Me an my cat ..
Yeah the shadow was a bit in the way, but i was in a hurry (girlfriend was being cuddly) :cool:

25-08-2007, 16:40
You should crop the pictures to about 700pixels in width so they don't mess up the forums layout.

I don't want to sound rude but I think your painting scheme is a bit ...weird. How did you come up with it?

25-08-2007, 19:00
Don' worry, no rudeness taken ;) Well.. i was lazy one day and i had a spare marine, so i decided to test my theory of being able to highlight an entire marine and make it look.."good" .. and then i kinda got attached to it, fluff will be upcoming (it's quite tzeentch) If anyone could think of a colour to have over the white that would look nicer i'm all ears though :D

25-08-2007, 20:19
Why do I recognise that Archaon-Lord conversion?

And why does everyne and their Mum have glasses and a cat/dog? I'm like, the only one!!

25-08-2007, 23:18
Merceus @ Dunno, i had the model and thought "why not?" .. i might GS him a bit so he can "resemble" a terminator lord..

And i did have contacts for a while :evilgrin:

26-08-2007, 11:46
oh right, lol...

P.S. :cries::p:D:rolleyes:

29-08-2007, 12:29

hmm... maybe its just your log thats screwing about? lol... go on... spawn... do it...

I know Im making at least 20!! (2 tides of spawn!!!) :evilgrin::evilgrin::evilgrin::evilgrin:

29-08-2007, 12:41
Well no painting yet.. thinking of what to buy (birthday upcoming) .. i'm leaning towards the new chaos termies, and lots of them as well :D
Might paint some havocs soon, converted the heavy bolters to be carried like regular bolters ( "light" heavy bolters, if you will ) and replaced the backpacks with shields on a few ('cause it looks cool)

29-08-2007, 12:41
O.O! Yes, how exactly DID your posts get before mine? Meh, doesn't matter, no pics fer a while, gf still has the cam..
Yup, birthday on the 6th, right before the BIIG market weekend 'round here :D

Thing about your scheme... its one of those ones where you can make any mark fit with a bit of variation...

And why no Thousand Sons? Better invul AND AP3 Bolters!

And i might include some khorne later on (by further highligting red on the white), depending on mood, right now i feel lika shootin/being annoying (inv save) :D

Sry death korp, but my plans of buying the above list got effed, and spawn are cheap so you never kno' ...

11-09-2007, 20:02
You and your 20 spawns! :p

I'm quite keen on the sorceror's mighty sinuous tail. :)

I think you should paint in the eyes on the marines, they'll look meaner. A dot of white and then a bit of colour (blue? Green? Or just red maybe) over that to give that evil glowing eye effect.

13-09-2007, 13:51
de selby @ I think i may do that, IF i can decide on a colour, anyone? o.O

16-09-2007, 15:50
Hmm.. gonna get started on my corrupted Storm Dragon (alá hiveminion (with permission) should be done with pics this weekend if it goes as planned^^

16-09-2007, 16:04
Purple is nice, lol... I think purple... cos its purple... and nice... do purple!

Or maybe something else... I dunno...

16-09-2007, 16:52
Purple would perhaps be a bit dark? i think i may go scorpion green on these suckas actually, glow ftw! :D

16-09-2007, 17:36
Tentacle pink O.O Scorpion Green O.O Ice Blue O.O Pikachu :S

yeah... Scorp green is nice...

16-09-2007, 19:09
Pikachu!? HERESY! *gets the BFG* "Come get some!"
I may actually use all of them, on different squads..

21-09-2007, 21:07
*put on hiatus due to orcs demanding attention*

21-09-2007, 21:29

(more words)

21-09-2007, 21:41
*vader voice* I find this lack of words disturbing

21-09-2007, 21:46
Ah, on hiatus, yet still recieving many replies, :p

Now! Put this attention on a log still in use...



07-10-2007, 21:51
I seem to have bought myself some eldar.. damn..

09-10-2007, 15:49
:mad:and whats wrong with that!

09-10-2007, 16:21
lol (again) Give us pics!!

09-10-2007, 18:12
Not yet, cam not be here now o.O
And the thing that's wrong with tht is that i have NO IDEA WHATSOEVER how to paint them, black perhaps?

09-10-2007, 18:23
Blue for sure!

09-10-2007, 19:24
Blue? nah i don't really like blue, unless perhaps very dark blue..

09-10-2007, 20:18
How to paint them? The Eldar? hmm...

I like the idea of black (or very dark blue) with pale pink details, just thin lines on the edges, nothing too obvious...

09-10-2007, 21:35
Pink? hmm..
I'm thinking of black with very dark blue edges actually, tyhoughts?

10-10-2007, 16:41
Wouldn't black with dark blue edges just be a really dark blue?

10-10-2007, 17:00
Purple would actually look pretty good

10-10-2007, 17:18
hmm... very dark purple trim on a black base... with bone details...

10-10-2007, 17:50
I was thinking a mix of dark purple and brighter purple. Perhaps some pink and grey. Very sombre pallete.

10-10-2007, 17:50
Might try the purple, pics this weekend perhaps?

10-10-2007, 18:57
Do it!!!!!

14-10-2007, 21:41
I started painting a guardian today.. i ended up poainting the armour purple.. rest will follow this weekend^^ (this one i was away so cam not reachable)
