The 'Profane Defilers' Chaos Marine Legion, while they are Slaanesh based I decided to fly in the face of the norm when it came to their colour scheme and the way they look.
I fancied a techno-organic feel, a nightmarish fusion of machine and flesh like in cyber-punk anime and Tetsuo the Iron-Man film series.
So I started off with three chaos dreadnoughts or hell brutes as they are called these days, these ones are the first ever lead ones that look nothing like any of dreadnought you may be used to these days and have been in my collection for a long long long time. Click Here! / Click Here!
Had to strip them back down which since they where metal wasn't so hard or risky.
For two of them I customized the heavy plasma cannon using two Stranglethorn Cannons side by side and a Venom Cannon from an old plastic Tyranid Warrior sprue and an ammo drum from Imperial Guard Auto Cannon Team to act as a Twin Las' Cannon and a Reaper Autocannon.
My only regret is I suck at taking photo's or I would pepper this thread with them everything comes out all blurred or to dark or fails to show the models off in all their glory.
Been using a lot of possessed Space Marine bits alongside other chaos marine bits to make each Chaos Marine unique in its own way as well as parts from Tryanid Warriors like the cabling and such to help give it that bio-mechanical feel to my army.
The Havoks are using these parts Click Here! for back packs and missile launcher since not only are Missiles Launchers (at least in my view) highly flexible weapons with reasonable range. But I was also a great fan of Space Crusade and Advanced Space Crusade as well as Space Hulk with all the upgrade model packs that came out for them.
Personally I buy my bits'n'bobs for conversions and scratch building from E-Bay it's cheaper especially if you’re putting your own stamp on your army to make it stand out as yours and not some generic look, but perhaps that's just me heh!
I am also currently putting off putting together the Chaos Decimator with Conversion Beamer and Siege Claw, as well as my Chaos Knight (has the forge world parts), it's gonna have an Avenger Gatling Cannon Arm, a Thunderstrike Gauntlet and a Twin Icarus Cannon. Been considering switching out the Heavy Snubber for a Meltagun.
The latter due I find the prospect to putting it together quite intimidating as I have no instructions since I got it off e-bay heh!
Now onto the actual paint scheme, it's pretty simple as shown below.
I start off with a base coat Chaos Black followed by a coat of Warplock Bronze before adding Kantor Blue to the joints and any techno flesh area of the armour often found on the Possessed Chaos Marine Torso/Legs/Arms/Shoulder Pads and Helmets.
Next I apply Balthasar Gold to the trimmings, details and cables, if there is no helmet then painting skin on to the exposed head (different skin types so have a varied collection) and red, blues and greens for any wires leading to the helmet or head. I may add other colours but only as required.
Finally I use Nuln Oil Wash, this when dry gives it a dark look that when you turn the model in the light you get to see a nice antique dark bronze like colour to each model. BUT add it not with a big brush but with a medium or small brush as you don’t want to drench it or water log the model in the wash.
Also be ready with a spare brush to suck up any excess wash or you end up with whole area’s completely black, now once this is done I add Glistening Green to the eyes of the Helmet and skulls and any other eye like decoration and voila!...It’s done!
After all that just need to do the base for which I use Astrogranite Texture followed by a little bit of Nuln Oil Wash and then Goblin Green around the sides with no wash. OH nearly forgot needed to add some Liquid Green Stuff to areas that when put together due to most the models being a mix'n'match of parts, just so as to leave no gaping holes or gaps, sometime even using normal Green Stuff to tiny to small areas.
(my skill in sculpting is neigh on zero)
And there you have it heh!
