A Path to Glory campaign would be fun! I haven't done a campaign in years.

 

Or spice things up with a narrative battle? Try uneven point values, planet strike, new battlegrounds or even stronghold assault?

That could be great fun with the guard desperately holdding the line vs WAAAAAGH-[insert warboss]. I´d read that batt rep, if you describe the action as your other battles :-D

Good news.

I have a commitment from 3 co-workers. They all will start 40K armies!

-E. will do Ultramarines or IG
-A. will do Orks (he's getting back into the hobby but gave away all his Orks)
-M. Will do Necrons

Yes, Warror Fish, I shall definitely document it.

E., A., and M. have all expressed interest in a slow-grow league and possibly a campaign. The slow-grow campaign would be a nice way for me to work on my custom Warpborne CSM Warband.

Are Verlo, those are all great ideas. I'll have to research campaign ideas and write up background fluff.

Good news, a nice spread of armies too so the games should always be different. Looking forward to seeing it progress :tu:

If you're looking to do path to glory, I'm hoping to finish my adaptation of the original Fantasy Path to Glory soon. After I finish the core, I plan on expanding it to include Death Guard and 1k Sons units, Imperials in the form of the Inquisition, and Orks, Eldar, and Tyranids.

Now I have to admit that, unlike all my other models, this model was not entirely painted by me. This is because I bought him used at a tournament last year. I primed all the model except for the pink arms. I really love the look of the pink on the arms so I kept it.

 

Sadly I don't know what color of pink the previous owner used on the arms.

 

If any of you have any theories as to what color of pink this might be I'd love to hear them.

 

 

Sorry for the delay, but I saw this post, meant to respond to it when I got home - then forgot.  So, hopefully this is still useful/relevant.

 

Anyway, I'm pretty sure the arm is Pink Horror, washed in Naggaroth Night, then highlighted with Emperor's Children.

 

Here's a pic of the three colours:

I finished another 6 models: 5 Warpborn Possessed and a Greater Possessed.

You can sort of see what my black looks like on his right leg here. For some reason, the black doesn't come across well in many of the photos.

gallery_88062_14499_24151.jpg

 

 

 

 

I'm getting a bit better at painting my new Warpborn color scheme which is green and black over rust with rust trim. My first  infantry model, Sorceress Valkia was really small so the color scheme just made her look green and rust. The black didn't really come through on her. On my 2nd infantry model, Jadath the Greater Possessed, I somehow totally forgot to use black paint so he's just green and rust. 

 

But on these models you can see the black and green in unison. Although in photos the black doesn't photograph as well as the green for some reason. I'm now officially pleased with the color scheme. Other than the small pirate goblin army I painted up years ago for Rackham's Confrontation miniatures wargame, I've never used green in an army before. I like it.

 

I'm not pleased with how the green pooled on some of the shields and other large surfaces though. I will resolve this by either mixing it with floor polish or something. Or I might try using oil paint as a wash. I did this with my Renegade Russes last year and I really like how the oil paints pooled in a very natural manner. Although they took forever to dry and cleanup of my painting area was a bit of a chore.

 

 

 

On a sidenote, I've really enjoyed 8th edition. But I've always enjoyed running my Chaos as a melee heavy army with a smattering of support shooting. 

 

This edition it sure has felt like it favors guns over knives. In fact, I won so much with my guard this edition that I felt dirty, especially when I could just jump out of combat and shoot the enemy on my turn. So I stopped playing with my Tallarns and switched over to Chaos in early 2018. smile.png

 

Hopefully 9th edition rebalances things a bit so that bringing melee heavy Chaos lists doesn't always feel like you are  bringing a knife to a gunfight.

 

 

 

 

Now I'm down to 10 models in my backlog (although 4 of them are terrain pieces so I probably won't be done til summer at some point).

 

 

 

Thank you for looking at my pictures!

Hello everyone,

 

Yesterday I finished up a batch of 5 Possessed Chaos Marines and 1 chaos character. They are painted up in the green and black colors of my Warpborn Chaos Warband. The character, Talos, is magnetized and can be used as a Chaos Lord with jumppack, Master of Possession, Sorcerer, etc.

 

 

With the completion of this batch this means I'm closer to completing my goal of paint all my models. I'm now down to 4 remaining models (a Pegasus Techbridge, a set of GW/Pegasus ruins, a Necromunda tower, and a Forgeworld emplacement).

 

It also means I've finished painting up all my Chaos models. Huzzah!

 

Here are some photos for your enjoyment...

 

 

Iart, Baruk, Tal Arthul, Bara, Layak, and Talos*

*Yes, I'm reading the Aaron Dembski-Bowden Night Lords trilogy so I named my Warpborn character Talos. :)

More shots of my Warpborn Possessed....

 

 

Here are some shots of the squad's icon bearer, Iart

gallery_88062_14499_62986.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_38905.jpg

 

The beauty of my Warpborn is that, unlike my Death Guard or World Eaters they are not beholden to a particular god. And I always feel guilty running my Night Lords with marks and icons. I sometimes feel I am a bad person because I run the mark of Khorne on my assaulty Night Lords and Mark of Slaanesh on my shooty Night Lords squads. But with the Warpborn I can run my Possessed as any flavor of Chaos I like!

And since I've now finished painting up all of my Chaos Marines, I thought' I'd set them up for some army wide shots.

 

 

Here are a few shots of my roughtly 8,150 points of Chaos Marines...

 

 

 

 

From left to right...Talos' Warpborn, Evita's Death Guard, Azrath's Assassins (World Eaters), Duvalier's Night Lords

gallery_88062_14499_101171.jpg

 

 

 

During the photo shoot the tablecloth that my models were all sitting on started moving to the left. I became rather alarmed and looked underneath to see my cat Spike attacking the tablecloth. The true enemy of Chaos is not the Imperium but rather a mischevious feline.

 

 

 

I'll post more photos later this week.....

Since, after 20 years, I've finally finished painting up all my CSM models I'm continuing the large photo dump of CSM....

 

 

Here are some photos of each of my 4 warbands.

 

 

Night Lords

gallery_88062_14499_100230.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_32748.jpg

 

 

 

World Eaters

gallery_88062_14499_105999.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_43851.jpg

 

 

 

Death Guard

gallery_88062_14499_112756.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_49360.jpg

 

 

 

Warpborn

gallery_88062_14499_5426.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

Now onto my HQ units...

 

 

Lord Duvalier Nightfall, the leader of my Night Lords warband...well, co-leader really, he and Biker Lord Chamorro Nightfall are cousins who hold joint leadership

gallery_88062_14499_6977.jpg

 

 

 

Chamorro Nightfall...Duvalier and Chamorro are almost joined at the hip...they can sense each others thoughts and have intense mutual respect and trust

gallery_88062_14499_267.jpg

Think Tomax and Xamot from Cobra

 

 

 

Bolivar and Sparky

gallery_88062_14499_6793.jpg

Bolivar is the Night Lord's sorcerous support. Chamorro and Duvalier are uncomfortable with Bolivar's worship of Tzeench, but he gets results

 

 

NightGaunt, the armies' Dark Apostle

gallery_88062_14499_34925.jpg

Since the Night Lords aren't particularly into any of the Chaos pantheons, Night Gaunt improves and protects the Night Lords by promising them more money. As such, he is more of a "paymaster" who grants invulnerable saves and other buffs by describing the loot they will all gain if they exert themselves on the battlefield.

 

 

Warpsmith Hoth

gallery_88062_14499_7154.jpg

While the Night Lords are not really into daemons or daemonic possession, they have no problem enslaving daemons to do their bidding. So Warpsmith Hoth and his Daemon Engines are a natural fit for the Night Lords.

 

 

 

 

Next up...World Eaters HQs...

Now some photos of my World Eaters HQs...


A shot of my HQs (minus Azrath plus SoulEater my Greater Possessed)
gallery_88062_14499_100744.jpg




Daemon Prince Azrath
gallery_88062_14499_39862.jpg
Daemon Prince Azrath has, over the millenia, clawed his way up from the woebegotten Chaos masses. He was once a rank-and-file Khorne-worshipping Chaos Cultist. But through skill, pluck, and a greath deal of bloodshed he became a Cultist Champion, then a Renegade Commander, then a Chaos Marine, then an Aspiring Champion, then a Chaos Lord. And, finally, he was gifted with Daemonhood for killing a Redemptors Space Marine Chapter Master (Khorne isn't picky about the fact that the Redemptors are practically Chaos themselves)


Barnabas the Butcher (usually a Chaos Lord or Exalted Champion)
gallery_88062_14499_52553.jpg
A former Raptor who was more interested in skill in battle and bloodshed than in instilling terror. He found his way to Azrath's warband where his talents are most appreciated.


Constantine the Cruel (usually an Exalted Champion)
gallery_88062_14499_71832.jpg
Seen as excessively cruel by the World Eaters standards. Whenever Azrath cooperates with the Night Lords, he uses Constantine as his liaison officer since the Night Lords respect Constantine's penchant for instilling terror in the foe.


BloodGrin, Chaos Lord in Terminator Armor
gallery_88062_14499_61205.jpg
A former Renegade Commander colleague of Azrath's. The two met again after centuries apart and Azrath invited BloodGrin to join his warband. Seeing an opportunity to shed more blood, BloodGrin happily accepted.




Next up...Death Guard HQs...



Here is a shot of all my Death Guard HQs except Gary the Daemon Prince
gallery_88062_14499_81860.jpg
From left to right Resk, Evita, Plagueclaw, and Ezekiel



My Deathguard warlord, Evita the Damned with pair of lightning claws on a Palanquin of Nurgle

Gary the Daemon Prince of Nurgle, this old school all-metal model is rather heavy
gallery_88062_14499_133479.jpg





Ezekiel, Possessed (I can run him as any number of support characters)
gallery_88062_14499_58846.jpg
gallery_88062_14499_46090.jpg
Back in 3.5 when your aspiring champions, lords, and other characters could become a daemon prince (being killed in the process) I'd drag him out and briefly put him on the board whenever this happened. My opponents got a kick out of this. I'd then put the Daemon Prince model down.


Sorcerer Resk

He can no longer be run in a Death Guard list since I don't want to lose access to Warptime. But I sometimes take him as the leader of an Outrider Detachment along with 2 solo spawn and a biker squad (now that I can't take bikes in my DG force either)

Many of you veterans probably remember the days of Chaos Bikers with Mark of Nurgle, good ol T6. They didn't kill much but they sure were durable.





Troops and transports are next....

Hello everyone, continuing on with all of my CSM troops and transports...

 

 

 

Night Lords Predator Squad

gallery_88062_14499_162444.jpg

This is my ranged squad. They usually sit back on objectives and pepper the foe with lascannon, autocannon, or missile launcher shots.

 

 

The Night Lords NightShades Squad, my midfield objective grabbers/plasma squad

gallery_88062_14499_22442.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_104269.jpg

Some of the squad members are sneaking up behind IG sentries, as is apropos for the Night Lords

 

 

 

The Night Lords Jackals Squad, a midfield objective grabber/melta squad

gallery_88062_14499_142158.jpg

 

 

 

The World Eaters BloodFlowers Squad, they are rather stylish because each of the squad members has a cape

gallery_88062_14499_156981.jpg

All my World Eaters have the chainaxe and chainsword combo except for the champs who have fists and the occasional plasma pistol trooper

 

 

World Eaters BloodTongue Squad

gallery_88062_14499_31531.jpg

 

 

World Eaters BloodBliss Squad

gallery_88062_14499_10517.jpg

 

 

 

World Eaters Company of Eight Squad

gallery_88062_14499_72232.jpg

Formerly a Havoc Squad, now Havocs can only be a squad size of 5. And as we all know, World Eaters Squads must all be eight in number.  rolleyesclean.gif   So I shall convert them over to CSM. Next year I will buy a box of AOS Skullreapers, give the heads and Khorne icons to a future Red Butcher termie squad, and use the Skullreapers as largish Chaos Marines.

 

 

 

 

World Eaters Alliance Squad

gallery_88062_14499_149205.jpg

Also to be converted over from Havocs to Chaos Marines

 

 

 

 

Death Guard SARS Squad with 2 plasmas, a power sword, and a Flail of Corruption (the eye thingie in front)

gallery_88062_14499_53840.jpg

 

 

 

Death Guard Bubonic Squad with 2 meltas and a fist

gallery_88062_14499_147974.jpg

 

 

Dengue Squad with 2 flamers and a fist

gallery_88062_14499_93921.jpg

 

 

 

Malaria Squad with 2 plasmas and a fist

gallery_88062_14499_54182.jpg

 

 

PlagueRot, a large squad of Plaguebearers

gallery_88062_14499_48158.jpg

 

 

 

Night Masque, Dragonne, and Lightning...helping the Night Lords get wherever they need to be

gallery_88062_14499_27793.jpg

Often when I'm almost tabled, all I have left is 1 of these Rhinos fleeing into a corner...

 

Tentaculus, shared by both the DG and WE

gallery_88062_14499_83009.jpg

 

 

 

Wrath, also shared between the 2 warbands

gallery_88062_14499_5618.jpg

 

 

 

Death's Head, used solely by the World Eaters

gallery_88062_14499_98741.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

Next...elites

Thanks WF, yes, it feels good to being close to finishing up all my models.

 

 

Here are some photos of my various CSM elites...

 

 

The Night Scoundrels, Chaos Chosen with a little bit of everything, especially meltagunsgallery_88062_14499_26715.jpg

I've been rather impressed with shooty Chosen in 8th, hopefully they remain somewhat effective in 9th as well...melee Chosen has been fun but more hit and miss

 

 

 

Chaos Terminators, the Night Lords' Atramentar and the Death Guards' Guerillas

gallery_88062_14499_14111.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_53408.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_75751.jpg

As many of you know, it looks like 9th Edition will be breathing new life into Chaos termies--an additional wound and the fact that they didn't go up in points (yet)

 

 

 

The Night Lords' Harry the Helbrute and the World Eaters' Dave the Dreadnought

gallery_88062_14499_47667.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_28878.jpg

I do love my dreads...cheap and sometimes quite effective, they pair really well with DPs

 

 

 

Greater Possessed, World Eaters' Soul Eater and the Warpborn's Jadek

gallery_88062_14499_91203.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_77878.jpg

The Pandemic has prevented me from using my Greater Possessed, but they look like fun

 

 

 

Possessed Chaos Marines, the Nameless, the newest edition to the ranks

gallery_88062_14499_20081.jpg

These look like an enjoyable unit that will pale in comparison to Bezerkers as assault troops, but I'm a casual player so I'll still use Possessed. Who knows, maybe they'll get 3 wounds when our Codex drops.

 

 

 

 

Now onto fast attack

 

 

Death Guard (counts as) bikers, RotRiders

gallery_88062_14499_171811.jpg

 

 

 

Death Guard Spawn (although they are often borrowed by the NL and WE too)

gallery_88062_14499_94860.jpg

I love these little guys, in both 8th and 9th they seem under-pointsed for what they can sometimes do 

 

 

Night Lords Raptor Squads Death from Above and Bats Out of Hell

gallery_88062_14499_33290.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_65454.jpg

An iconic Night Lords unit. As with my Chaos Termies, I'm hoping that 9th will also breathe new life into these chaps. The extra damage from chainswords and the extra wound sort of reminds me of how they performed back in 3rd and 4th edition. I'd like to augment their ranks by buying and painting up a Warp Talons squad, hopefully early next year.

 

 

 

Furies Squad

gallery_88062_14499_93530.jpg

These suckers did lots for me in 3rd edition. In 8th edition I would generally set aside the points for summoning in a squad of 10 furies and they I'd forget to summon the squad. D'oh!

 

 

 

Chaos Bikers, Night Lords Bat to the Bone Squad and NightRiders Squad

gallery_88062_14499_7335.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_13519.jpg

I've always loved Chaos Bikers. To me they epitomize the Night Lords way of war, even more so than Raptors squads. They hit and run against the enemies' weaker units, instilling terror before fading into the darkness.

 

 

Coming next...heavy support

And to finish off my photo dump...my CSM heavy support units.

 

 

 

Death Guard Predators, Gramps and Old Faithful

gallery_88062_14499_96404.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_52175.jpg

Making Predator Autocannons 2d3 shot, 3 wound weapons really improved these guys' oomph on the battlefield

 

 

 

Oscar the Obliterator

gallery_88062_14499_88529.jpg

Poor Oscar, I haven't used him in years. Which is unfortunate because Oblits are good now. Maybe I'll have to give him a couple of buddles from the Shadowspear set and try him out.

 

 

 

Night Lords Chaos Havoc Squads Armorbane, Night Snipers, and BugHunters

gallery_88062_14499_80661.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_93862.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_9306.jpg

I used squads of 8 to 10 Havocs earlier in 8th Edition. But once Vigilus dropped them down to squads of 5 I became less interested. That's a lot of points to put onto a squad that only has 1 ablative wound, the Champion.

 

 

The Daemon Engines, Mary the Maulerfiend, BloodLady and 888 the Blood Slaughterers, and Deffy the Defiler

gallery_88062_14499_54194.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_11529.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_28789.jpg

gallery_88062_14499_36818.jpg

While technically my Blood Slaughterers are Fast Attacks and Mary and Deffy are heavy support, I'm including them all here because they are all Daemon Engines. 

 

I was really obsessed with Daemon Engines for most of 8th (and still am). They are not particularly powerful, but they are just so fun. And the Vigilus Ablaze daemon engine detachment made them somewhat viable. In many games they would re-create the charge of the light brigade (since 40K has emphasized shooting over assault lately) and they'd get blown up before they could reach the foe. But when things worked out they were a joy to use. Plus, if I wanted to shoot stuff I'd use my IG. I'm a Chaos player and that means getting in close and personal and ripping the enemy from limb to limb with giant dino robots from hell.  biggrin.png

 

 

 

And as a parting image, my favorite Chaos model, Ninja Joe from the Night Lords' Jackals CSM Squad. Who doesn't love Chaos Marine Ninja Nunchaku warriors.

gallery_88062_14499_12050.jpg

 

 

 

 

I hope ya'all enjoyed the pics. Take care!

 

 

Night Lords, "The quick and the dead."

Death Guard, "There's something rotten in Denmark."

World Eaters, "Burn! Maim! Kill!"

WarpBorn, "I feel the warp overtaking me!"
