I have decided to open a WIP topic dedicated to my Primaris Chaos Conversions.

 

I already have a WIP post, but I guessed my current effort deserved something dedicated.

I have just brought the Dark Imperium set, and I am simply astonished by the new Primaris bodies and their potential as conversion material!

 

Surprisingly I found very little material about "chaosification" of Primaris in Chaos Marines on the net; if some of the wonderful people of this community can point me at some examples I would be grateful

 

First I thought to just make some Champions out of them (I need new Sonic Blaster bearing champions for my noise marines units); I guessed they would look great as giants among pears and easy to spot, for once

 

Then I was impressed with the first results, started a possessed and seen it turning in my hands into a Dark Apostole.

 

Then a Warpsmith was due

 

Then, then, then...

 

I guess I will give each conversion a single post with pics, explanation and some fluff, editing it to show progresses (unless a mods discourage this)

 

So:

 

THE PROJECT

 

Convert some beautiful chaos people from bigger marines, share info, get hint, work slowly but steady to build some elite guys

Pics are awful, sorry

 

THE MAIN ARMY

 

All this new models will be added to my existing noise heavy Slaneesh army

 

THE FLUFF

 

The warband originates as a group of posers, a cover band, if you prefer :-)

 

Origins are clouded, but It is told that at least 4 companies of a Space Marines Chapter called Seekers, never came back from a sacred pilgrimage to the Istvaan system, to "See the root of Heresy".

 

Some decades after a Warband of renegades started to roam the galaxy looking for noise weaponry, trying to attract veterans from the III legion at every occasions

 

The Sublime Sound Seekers belive that the most "blessed" can hear the galaxy sing, and if you move with that song, you will be invincible, eternal, perfect.

 

They follow this belief with extraordinary abandon, only few of them indulging in rational "thinking" before act following impulses, so they have been constantly manipulated by cunning sorcerers, more experienced Chaos Lords and all matter of obscure power.

 

Finally they managed to host with their ranks some elements of the original III Legion, finally attracting the attention of the ever vigilant Fabius Bile

 

Bile and his associates, recently experimented with may voluntaries among their ranks, in his search to steal the Primaris formula from Kawl.

 

Those are the best results jet

While not technically Chaos (yet) I have used some heresy era/Rubric upgrades to convert Primaris into a loyalist (for now) Thousand Sons force and I have seen a lot of Alpha Legion out there.

I have seen some alpha myself, not too much I have to say, but I actually liked some Berserkers/Reivers. But I feel much more potential

 

Pics of your Loyalist TS?

I like where you are going with your conversions though, Mine are mostly head/arm swaps with the odd addition, might try and do a more modern take on a Full chaos Thousand Sons Primaris someday :-)

They are a work of absolute beauty I cannot hope to match with my current level of painting skills!
They capture a feel of proud and sad sages that have to sacrifice for the well being of lesser people!
Your simple conversion are just neat.
Mine is a different job, more messy, but I hope it will be good in the end

Thanks for the kind words!, I was always more of a collector/painter than a player and couldn't resist the new models (and had a few leftover bits from my current Heresy/Prospero project ;-) Fluff wise I figured since Cawl had genetic material from all 20 original Primarchs why wouldn't he try and recreate/fix the flaws of the ones who turned? Regardless of what Roboute told him. That and I love the Thousand Sons history and Aesthetic. They also let me play as a Loyalist or Renegade force (depending on opponent) to try out the new 8th edition (I hadn't played since 2nd).

 

Once I get the Heresy lot done I plan to go back to regular 40k Chaos Thousand Sons so might throw in a couple of converted Primaris Rubric for fun.

 

Your conversions are great, I love the wires/pipes! hopefully a future Slaanesh release will give them the same kind of resources/new bits/models we now have for the Death Guard and Thousand Sons.

Hey, we have great bending finecast sonic weaponry ^^;

 

Yes, new sculpt are greatly needed for Slaanesh (as a good new generic CSM one, among the others), still some bits can really make the difference... Well it's bound to happen, and for now I'm happy with what I've got

 

8 is not bad at all, can't compare to 2 as I started in 3rd.

 

I will do a Heresy army one day in the future, I hope my skill then will gran a good result

When I get home for more then grabbing food and taking a nap I'll take a picture of my Reiver Berserkers, but to give you an idea I clipped the reiver torso above the black lining and replaced with the torso from Blood Warriors, and replaced the pistol arm with a blood warriors goreaxe arm.


Well would you look at the time, it's zombie o'clock!

Take a look at the conversion ideas in the 2nd ed Chaos dex. John Blanches army was pretty inspiring, as is some of the Chaos minis he has done over the past few years. 

 

Have you thought about rolling on the mutation charts in Realms of Chaos before you build your units, might give you a few ideas. 


Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends. There is a secret song at the center of the world, and its sound is like razors through flesh.
