Hello everyone!

This is the thread for my LPC Vow, where I will be posting my progress in completing my vow. I hope to begin work this weekend when I get back to my models in Edinburgh, so I hope to post the first update (with photos!) then!

I have pledged to complete the following:

Seltharis the Ordained
Chaos Sorceror in Terminator Armour

The 2nd Coterie known as "The Preachers"
10 CSM with Asp Champ, IoCG and melta

And

The 5th Coterie known as "The Blood Prophets"
10 CSM with Asp Champ and IoK

I collect Word Bearers (you may have guessed! ;)) The paints I use are Mechrite Red for the armour, Chainmail for the trims, Boltgun metal for the gun and armour joints, Chaos Black for the gun casing, can't remember Khemri Brown followed by Bleached Bone for the horns, Shining Gold for decoration and shiny bits and Ice Blue for the eyes. I then wash the miniature with Badab Black.

I hope you enjoy seeing my work, and I look forward to reading your C&C and being hounded for updates (which will probably always be late)!

For Lorgar, and the glory of the Chaos Ascendant Subforum!

Castiel
EDIT: Told a lie. its been corrected! I'm using Khemri Brown,not dehneb stone!

Talk about cliffhanger. Build suspension now and then make us wait. It's just perfectly evil and therefore well-suited to the agents of Chaos.

Just so you all don't get too excited, the first pics will just be of the models basecoated, nothing too fancy! ;)

No worries on my end. I'm still at that stage where basecoat+wash is where I stop painting. :lol:

Definately interested in how they turn out with those colors. I'm going to try to paint up some Word Bearers this weekend myself...

Nice! So I assume that the 5th Coterie will be getting up close and personal since it has an IoK?

Are you going to be making a dark apostle to lead your force? either a lord or sorceror with MoT (for that 4+ 'crozius' save) would be good.

You were warned!

I have a lord in Termi armour that I'm using for a Dark Apostle. I'll maybe put up a picture of him later on.

In other news, Seltharis is midway throught the painting process, and the 5th coterie banner bearer is almost finished, more pics soon!

You still need to paint the eye on the staff. Also the picture looks quite dark, which I suppose is not intentional, but it detracts from the overall quality. And where are your highlights? :tu: This is not meant in any harsh way, just my 50 cents

My photos suffer from the same thing. My advice is to go over the bones with a very light coat of gryphonne sepia followed by even lighter devlan mud. Also try to do something with the eye on the staff, he's right it does look funny the way it is. Otherwise he looks good. Going to paint the base?

Looks decent. As said, a few touches required, but I look foward to the rest of the army and pics once their based.

Thanks for the responses!

As you've probably guessed, I'm not a great painter, so getting extra advice is always good! I'm working on fixing the things pointed out, I'll have a new (hopefully brighter!) picture up soon!

My vow is complete! I have 20 Chaos Space Marines and a Sorceror finished before me! :) Unfortunately my camera has run out of battery so I can't take any pictures yet. :D I will get you pictures tomorrow morning. Scout's honour.
