Oh that's it, I'm starting now, no way you can taunt me like that! I'll race you. :P


Depending on what scheme you choose you still stand a good chance of catching me. This was all the easy part of my paint scheme. It gets a bit fiddly from here on out.

I'm even experimenting here. I've heard people using Vermin Brown to undercoat for gold. I have been painting over the white primer but laying it on thick. Here I'm seeing how a light brown beneath the gold will work.

But I AM all the way up to the first wash...

Getting close now. This is with the black quartering filled in and the orange second coat:

The devlan mud wash:

All that's left after the wash dries is the sand basing, the bloody spatters on the chainsword, and then the clear coat, then I'm done!

Very nice work Max I really love the quavered colour scheme and those Hazard stripes are very cool


At the moment I have done a test model for the Alpha Legion tutorial (thanks Brother Nihm) and now I'm going to start on the proper model :)

I am totally up for this.

I just built a squad of Chaos Marines yesterday, I primed them this morning. Can I use a primed model or do I need a pic of a bare plastic marine to do this?

I just primed my guy so I hope not :tu:

Can we equip our guy with a rocket launcher, or a meltagun, or whatever so long as it's legal for a regular Chaos Marine to wield it?

Primed models are OK, and:

Can you assemble, base and paint a single, bog-standard Chaos Space Marine (e.g. from the Troops choice of the same name) by the end of next week? (Friday the 2nd of December)

Note that it doesn't have to be Golden Demon standards, simple tabletop quality will do (minimum 3 different colours and some form of shading, highlights are optional but earns you extra)
You get to choose whatever chapter/legion/warband scheme, as long as it is Chaos - it is good. These are the only restrictions.

:P

Rock on -Max-, truly impressive. ;)
Now where is everyone else's?

This,
Is a challenge.


I accept your paltry challenge, and am prepared to crush it with all the accord it deserves given how long I've been in preparation for a much larger challenge coming from this forum. . .a challenge, I might add, that has yet to rear itself out of the mire of idle promises. :D

For you Alpha Legionnaires (where did you all come from?! :) )

I played Alpha Legion in 2nd ed, then I took a break during most of 3d and the whole 4th edition...(and thus missed the 3.5 codex, damnit!)

Last year I got back into the game and Alpha Legion was the obvious choice again...although the fluff has change somewhat...

I'm an extremely slow painter!!! I have managed to get 26 models painted since last year, but could probably muster a 2500p army by now(unpainted). Also there is around 1000p of cultists/pdf/militia/ig as well sneaking around my desk! ;)

This thing will at least get me to paint another model, hehe

[Edit]: Here is the pre-painted model:

I would, if I had any way to actually grab a model to work on :/

My sympathies, may I inquire as to why that is?


Beeing at the other side of the world compared to my painting tools and model shop does that to me :)

Great idea! I'll also try to participate. If i'm allowed to show one of my newest recruits from the Space Wolves (their box is awesome! They perfectly serve as base for turning into CSM! ^_^ ) that i suppose to finish in a few days than i'm in! If not... than i'll be hard enough due to study. But we'll see :D
