With the advent of Shadow War Armageddon, I wanted to play and paint something different than my usual norm, Blood Angels.

I wanted to play power armor, but alas scouts were the faction unit. I then read over the others and settled on CSM. After reading the fold out fluff, I settled on Renegades.

Mantis Warriors had some cool fluff from Badab War and they were Sessionists and Renegades, although they were forgiven upon completion of a 100 year Penatance Crusade, which I believe they are still on at the time of setting of Shadow War.

So...we have a "blacksheild" Mantis Warrior Kill Team using CSM rules for Shadow War.

As for Cultists, I'll have generic ones, no overtly chaos anything.
 
First 1000pt List consists of
Champion with BG and Camo
3x CSM troop with BG and Camo
1x CSM specialist with BG and Camo
2x Cultists one with additional knife

The very existence of flame-throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done

Sure. Its very Very Easy. Two Coats of Ulthuan Grey, Then as Many Washes of Casandora Yellow as you like till you achieve a good color you are happy with. I believe I did 2-4 on average.
