My name's George, and I'm an alcoho...wait no, wrong addiction. I've been around Warhammer for 15 years or so now, but haven't really played or painted anything seriously since becoming an adult. I'm finally finishing university, figuring out my life etc., and I'm finding that I actually have free time again!
Chaos Space Marines were my first models ever, and the new Chaos release got me really excited to get back into Warhammer properly - I've played 3 games of 8th edition with some Primaris and some Death Guard thanks to Conquest magazine, but I've not been very eager to paint them. These guys on the other hand...
I've always been terrible at painting whole armies, and so before I started this diary I decided to get a decent chunk painted first. I'm starting with a 1,000 point army list, probably going up to 2,000 in the end. So the units to build and paint so far are...
- Chaos Lord in Terminator Armour
- Sorcerer Lord on bike
- 2x 5 man Chaos Space Marine squads
- 15 Cultists
- 2 Obliterators
- 10 Khorne Berserkers
Before they disappeared, I got myself a Chaos Start Collecting box, as I wanted some old-school Chaos Space Marines for posterity - and hopefully, to help convert my Berserkers - more on those later. This also got me my Lord, some bits for the Sorcerer and the Helbrute. A box of the new Chaos Space Marines rounded out my initial purchases.
So now - painted models! Spoiler because big images.
Next up is my Sorcerer Lord and my cultists - all built, with the Sorcerer basecoated. For cultists, I wanted a little variety and so I've mixed in a few Guardsmen with Skitari heads - they seemed fitting. We'll see if I can be bothered to green stuff some more details onto them, but I feel like they're good enough now - after all, they are just chod.
