    Word up! 30 days of work.

    So, I'm back on the chaos marines. A quick tidy around the house revealed that I had what could only be described as a pile of CSM sprues, berzerker sprues, a mountain of obliterarors, and lots of chaos-like bits.

    So, taking codex in one hand, and caluclator in the other, I started to work out what I could make from the pile.

    The conclusion was a CSM Word Bearer army.

    So the army list looks something like this:

    Dark apostle (plus a bit of kit)
    8 possessed marines (talons),
    10 marines, champ w. powerfist, heavy bolter, plasma gun,
    10 marines, champ w. powerfist, heavy bolter, plasma gun,
    8 marines, champ w. powerfist, heavy bolter, plasma gun,
    8 infiltrating marines, champ w, powerfist, 2 meltaguns,
    Landraider
    2 Obliterators

    In order to get this all done, I've set myself a time limit. This serves several purposes.

    1: to reinforce what people think of me - that I'm mad.
    2: to prove that one can make a large-ish army in a short time.
    3: to get the army finished as an adversary to Railgunner's army, before he gets his own finished.
    4: to get me to finish the army.

    So the log starts today. I have 30 days to do this. (30 days is totally arbitory). I hope that real life, school and work don't get too much in the way. They probably will, but that's life...

    Day 1:

    (Well, yesterday, actually) I assembled and started on the first 10 man squad. I've included the three tests that I did before I started this log to see how the paint scheme worked.

    Here's the squad so far.
    Champion:

    Weapon specialists:

    Troopers:



    I've opted for a dark, semi-metallic scheme, since it isn't something you see everyday. Like-wise, it's pretty fast to paint. I've done the skin tone in a slightly corrupted tone, since the Word Bearers are not the genetic mutants of other legions.

    And yes, they are inspired byt he Kopinski art work in the Horus Heresy books, and the Codex...

    Looking good, Pert. I really like the metallic red. 30 days for 47 models and a tank? I wish you good luck.

    No dipping here! The pot of the stuff isn't big enough for the landraider....


    EDIT: I should add that this is the army that I will be beating to a pulp.

    Wow, very original and well executed scheme. (not the usual scab/blood red)

    I'll watch this thread with amazement.

    Re: Word up! 30 days of work.

    yeah i really adore the reddy metal, looks superb. i will keep coming back.
    and also, just how can you 'look round the house' and find an army? that truly 'serves to reinforce your label as mad'
