Thanks for the input, all. I've got enough spare decals at home, so I'll give it a test run. I'll let you all know how it goes.

There's a lot of awesome work in going on in this forum - very inspiring.

 

I'm not sure how much I can add to the cause but I've got plenty of unpainted stuff - we'll see what I can get done.

 

I , Sgt. Blank, rise to the challenge of E TENEBRAE LUX on the side of the Chaos Space Marine Forum and vow to complete one Predator with twin lascannon turret, lascannon sponsons and havoc launcher of total value 201 on or before August 1st, 2018. Success will bring me eternal glory and failure will doom me to wear the Badge of the Oathbreaker until the year-end.

 

Here's the starting point:

Edit: if this doesn't count as a base color, let me know.

Thanks! I use Worldeater rules and (basically) the Eight-scarred color scheme from the Khorne Daemonkin codex.

Man, there are some great pieces in here. Been away a while, so might as well dive back in here.

 

I, Large and Moving Torb, rise to the challenge of E Tenebrae Lux on the side of the Death Guard and the Chaos Space Marines forum and vow to complete the units listed below of total value 296 points on or before August 1st, 2018. Success will bring me eternal glory and failure will doom me to wear the Badge of the Oathbreaker as a mark of shame until the year-end.

 

1) Lord of Contagion with Manreaper

 

2) Plague Marines x 6; one with Plasma gun, one with Meltagun, and champion with Plasma gun and Plague sword.

 

3) Chaos Spawn

 

And here is my initial picture:

Once more, my thanks to both MaliGn and Augustus b'Raass for their help with this project, as I think I found a winner. As with all things Chaos, so often the solution to all one's problems is more Blood for the Blood God.

 

Sealing the transfer and using shades worked exactly as intended. The colors tinted the white without obscuring the armor beneath, and it really helped tone down the white. They wouldn't settle evenly over the icon, but that was to be expected, and nothing a few coats of careful, precise dabbing wouldn't fix. Except... I couldn't really find a shade I liked. Agrax was the closest to looking good, Nuln Oil and Sepia were alright, and anything else just clashed. I tried making "glazes" with standard paints, but there was always too much pigment and they didn't work. Then I tried BftBG. Being thicker but still translucent it gave better coverage, and I think the red works for what I have planned. 

 

So, here's an Obliterator and a partially finished Cultist for reference. 

vqle8lAl.jpg?1

Plenty of Incubi Darkness, with accents of Khorne Red (in hindsight, I should have turned the Cultist so the red inside of his robe was showing...). All of my decal plans would be on those shoulder plates and the outside of the robes. 

0c3h9Wam.jpg?1

So I quickly slapped paint on these things and some spare decals for some fast proofs of concept. That's two very haphazard coats of Blood and a flat varnish on top to try and tone down the shine (despite what my poor lighting otherwise implies). With more careful application it will cover quite well. And... that little overspill onto the green actually makes an interesting shadow effect I may consider using.

So there we have what it would ultimately look like when said and done. It actually comes quite close to matching the highlights on the cloth, so it's a pretty good fit. Time to make an order from Fallout Hobbies for some sweet Chaos Cogs. Cheers, all.

Very impressive Scourged! I'm loving your Obliterators, much better than the GW model, much more imposing and they feel as though they're Traitor Legionnaires. I look forward to more!

No update this week, I'm basing the clothing on my Cultists and Zombies but there's a few that still have yet to be touched so I won't bother taking pics. Next week, however...

I'll hopefully have 15 completed - bar basing and filthening - Plague Marines tomorrow - as well as possibly the Chaos Lord if mood sustains, and then this weekend I plan to assemble the last of the Plague Marines and hammer away at the Spartan.

 

Why hesitate on the filthening? Cause I plan to get all the Marines based at once and then... EVERYTHING GETS DIRTY. Easily by the end of Month 2, I plan to have finished my vow.

Just checking in to say I am still alive, did my back in again (seems to only happen during the ETL), should be back into the swing of things in a day or so, got all the minis base coated so there isnt much left to do before I revow. :tu:

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.
