Hey guys, thanks for the replies!
I should be able to get the fourth squad member uploaded tonight. I've decided to paint the rocks on their bases the same way I paint chunks of warpstone for my Skaven army - I think the dark, almost black-green I use with vivid green highlights will provided a nice colour splash against the armour and muddy brown ground.
Very nice work doing the icon in GS.
Cheers! It's my first real attempt at it and I intend to put them on most of the Doomseekers. Unfortunately so far that original attempt is proving to be the best. :S
I like the bone-coloured helmets. Is the trim the same colour or is that metalic?
Also nice to see Khorne worshippers that arn't just 'nutters-with-axes'. Is that just the models you had available or are you focussing on a certain aspect of Khorne-worship other than blood-crazed berzerkers?
Thanks! The trim on the pads is the same colour, but I've been colouring anything bearing Khorne's icon Tin Bitz, Devlan and Badab, then... Scorpion Brass (damnable name-changes!).
The Doomseekers worship Khorne through bloodshed, like any of his true followers, but maintain the heavily ritualistic mindset of their original Legion, the Word Bearers, and are far from being the rabid, semi-lobotomised nutbars that people constantly label Khorne armies as. Check the link in my signature for their Index Traitoris.
But having said that, the truly zealous and worshipful Doomseekers are blessed by Khorne to become the Bloodbound, robed warriors whose fanatical thirst for bloodshed drives them into close-combat, where their deity can be praised in the purest way - by taking skulls with vicious chain-weapons! ...guess what they count-as
At the moment I've got the mini-set of three clip-together Chaos Space Marines and five stripped-down Imperials. I'll be getting a box of CSM and a box of 'zerkers then mashing them together to create my Bloodbound Doomseekers.
Nice and simple colour scheme! The beakie Renegade on the right is my favourate.
Have you any ideas on Doomseekers fluff or insignia yet?
Hah, ta very much! Beakie was my least favourite to begin with, but as I work on the others I'm starting to like him more. I think it's because he has the most solid icon. :\
For Doomseekers fluff, click the link in my sig. As for insignia, I've decided to play it safe for now and just go with skulls, chains and Khorne-symbol iconography. I'm trying to think of something more specific to their warband at the moment. Whatever I can come up with will go on the Aspiring Champion's banner.
Thanks for your time!
