So my local club has an upcoming vigilus campaign event and I thought what with the new chaos releases it was time to have a dedicated chaos 40k army instead of me using my 30k models


As a result I picked up the chaos half of shadow spear and a few extras to build the core of the army.

Heres the first couple of lads in a wip format

Like them a lot! I'll be following this thread for inspiration for my own Shadowspear Iron Warriors.

So managed to get the first squad up to a tabletop standard and whack their transfers on.

Ill probably go back after I get the bulk of the army done and finish up the edge highlighting and re work the bond a bit.

Time to start basing them and blocking in trim on the next squad

Those new plastics look incredible in the IW scheme. Top job.

They look great.  The guy in the front right's sword (or whatever is in his right hand) looks really interesting - how did you paint it?

Looking good, can you change out the shoulder pads or just the heads on this quick build shadowspear stuff? Mk III pads, backpacks and helm would make easy corrupted Mk V pattern armour, extra studs/ spikes and set IMO.

Some of the shoulder pads can be swapped - the one I remember doing last is the shoulder pad (left one?) on the autocannon guy.

Isn't that head/helmet in your 3rd picture from the original IW legion set?

Very nice job with the minis!

Yup! I needed a way to add on an arm after I pilfered it for a bolter marine

They look great. The guy in the front right's sword (or whatever is in his right hand) looks really interesting - how did you paint it?

Its zandri dust drybrushed karak stone washed nuln oil and then highlighted flayed flesh

Isn't that head/helmet in your 3rd picture from the original IW legion set?
Very nice job with the minis!

Yup! Its much better value than the fw kit as it comes with weapons and torsos as well as heads


Decided to add a few squads of plague marines to the army as fire support. Fluff wise they are remmants of the companies destroyer units

Here's one freshly sprayed
