I'm starting to get the 40k urge after painting about 4 confrontation armies (see 2 of them http://www.metalforge.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?t=781 and http://www.metalforge.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?t=597)
This army is primarily a modelling project that I have always wanted to do. Basically its and undivided army with all the cults included. so EC, WE, PM and not to forget TS.
so first some Khorne terminators. Using the article in WD so had to make and use lots of green stuff. I;m getting better at making molds.
after the base coat
and icon bearer
a bloodletter (test model to check colors), only 7 more to do
My commander on a steed , large 50mm base and lots of green stuff moulding on legs
with hq, changed head from khorne to the double mutated head from chaos sprue.
will try and post some more soon.
Holy Crap Man!! where did you get all of those skulls!?!?!?
They look really nice so far mate by the way..looking forward tos eeing that commander done
Very cool Terminators man!!! I havn't seen that done before with the World Eater helmet "horns"... Very nice
Yer i'm lovin the half half colour sceam you do that up properly would look wicked for your Zeentch/khorne army.
Though don't like the axe on your Lord (never liked that axe) maybe try to convert a different weap on there?
Might look a bit dicky if you do them 4 different colours (eg one for each god) and all red makes me think of khorne. (eg for your undivied troops could look sh*t though could look good?).
The blood letter, don't realy think the grey suit's him, maybe do the horns different and the handle of the axe would change it up?
My bloodletters i did them black etc (I have a mix of old and new), but there hair i did like fire and added flames on there back and base, looks fairly cool , maybe that would break up the min better?
can't wait to see what you come up with, lookin great so far
Yeah, sort of thinking of taking pure WE instead of mix. BL i have seen black ones and just wanted to use gray with flaming hair and blood red single shoulder pad.
I might still try a split paint scheme as a painting project.
Do you have any more skulls for the Land Raider? Reason I ask is I looked at it, and the first thing I saw was a really big "H", then looked closer and realised they were skulls
Nice! I love the Green stuff work (something I will have to get used to for my Death Guard project!)
Very Khornate, keep it coming!
Awesome loving the split colour scheme as well as the amount of skulls very chaos like...
The Bloodletter is awesome also
Keep it up mate looking forward to seeing more
Number 5 gets my vote The stance/pose is pretty cool...
I'm with Wolverine. The 3rd one is awesome. Some very good battle damage on him, and love the skeleton with the helmet on.
number 2 is my favorate,its got a mad stance and colour
1st one my favourite
thinking of making the #1,does any one know what head was used???
Hey thanks for the pics Jason. I like the 3rd one.
Actually have decided to make a defiler.
Have a look, using forge world icon as body and for green stuff molds on legs etc. Won't be massive (aka Jasons TS defiler). Will be a true 'machine of Khorne' as described in Liber Chaotica Vol 1. Lots of spike etc and lots of skulls.......
also a few more WIPs
Man this army is looking sweet! I love what you're doing to that Defiler! I think it'll look awesome when completed.
What Dark Soul said. That is going to be one awsome defiler. Any chance of better pics of the green stuff work?
That looks awesome. Keep up the good work.
Wow... thats looking really cool..
I assume all its armour plates will be like that? That'll look the shizz nizz when its painted
Mounted on 4 legs to have a look. Feels like it need something else (apart from loads of spikes...).
any suggestions? I stuck a 'face' on the engine mount. Looks ok but might have to do the whole thing. Had the idea of leaving legs and engine black and the rest will be blood red. I could do engine blood red as well?
The autocannons look a little small for it, maybe cut the barrels off and use the autocannon barrels off the one that came with the defiler. I also think that when the front legs are on they will add alot to it.
I don't know Magnus, the body now looks too blocky and too big I think...
Maybe it would look better with the front arms, but I can't help feeling maybe you went a bit too far on him...
I sort of like it, but there's a kind of "evil Thomas the Tank Engine" thing to it rather than a daemon engine.
Lol @ the evil Thomas the tank engine.
I think if you position the front legs just right, it should make it look less blocky.
And The autocannons definately need to be bigger.
Other then that, it looks quite cool!
I actually really like the boxy look, it has a HR Geiger feel to it, something truly closer to demon than anything in the normal universe.
I strongly suggest you don't change it, as when painted (in Khornate Red I assume) it will look absolutely dominating.
A telescope... that kills people..
Yeah, like this.
Thomas with new BC barrel...
will blend into turret and make it look Khorne ish
I reckon that looks awesome, Bruce; it reminds me of the spider demons in Doom II. I think the massive bulk on top is very khornate, it certainly matches the artwork of Khorne's daemon-engines.
I'd be inclined to give it two more normal legs rather than the claws to make it look like it scuttles about the battlefield unleashing battle cannon pain, but that's probably just me.
The killer telescope looks awesome
I prefer the face, tbh
sorry to de rail the thread a bit, but does anyone else think the 5th dready posted by wolverine looked like it was converted with a doornob, just looked a tad strange
Anywho, love the corn guys, agree that a split colour army woldve looked da shizz, but meh beggars cant be chosen......(very very very stupid joke, sorry cant function at.. any time )
Undercoated the 'engine of Khorne'. Colors a bit off. Needed to use tungsten setting...
Will be blood red, bronze and grey (NMM).
added more mutations around front and legs near smoke launcher.
Close up of WE symbol on front claw. Thinking of trying to paint an outline of NZ on the world?
looks better undercoated
cannot wait for it to be finished
keep it up
That defiler looks so awesome now! Top Marks!
It looks awesome, but personally, I liked it better with the face that you had around the turret.
Holy crap Bruce! They look awsome. I thought your new Confrontation stuff was good but that Defiler is off the scale.
Well its been a long time but with the new Chaos codex i have decided to finish my World Eater army (originally titled as undivided).
Few changes to list thou,
1 D Prince with MoK and wings
8 Terminators with AC, MoK, 2 pf, 1 Cf, 1 HF
8 Berzerkers with AC, PF and rhino
8 Berzerkers with AC, PW and rhino
10 Troops with MoK, lascannon and rhinp
4 Bikes with MoK and 2 Melta's
8 Havocs with MoK, 3 plasma, 1 melta and Rhino
I've a few points left out of 1850 for something ... Comes to troops 39 % and 54 models so its ok.
Modelling progress , started rhino, green stuffed WE side door and other. Modelled up some havocs with PG's.
Also really looking forward to making up a DP with same features as Defiler etc.
Just to prove to all the skeptics that I have started painting my 40K again
and start of rhino
WOW My absence early this year made me miss this? Goddamn hawt mutated vehicles you've got there magnus.
Ah yes, I remember this diary. Good to see you're working on it again.
Wow! Nice army! I love the skulls, but I'm glad you finally came out of the closet (Khloset?) as a Khorne only army - as I was reading I was thinking "undivided my foot!"
Just thinking about it - that's pretty evil giving a CSM squad the mark of khorne - 3 attacks from bolter boys? Not bad!
I like the massive termy squad, should be an absolute ROCK. I remember an ole WD (circa 99) when a 9 strong unit of termies when ape in a bat rep, nothing could touch them.
Did you make all the greenstuff skull bases? they look awesome, I have always wanted to do an army using them, but I havent had a chance to do khorne
Some rhinos , one for my berzerkers with possession and other for havocs. One thing I learning is that red is a real pain to paint with. Its a bit late now . I'm happy with progress of base coating so far. I'm actually running out of paint and need to order some more as LGS is all out....
I needed some motivation so in between painting my troops I have been base coating my defiler.
I waiting for some stuff from forgeworld for my next rhino for the other unit of berzerkers and I'll show you soon as.
Well I said i should be base coating my troops. Have done some terminators, washed and based to see what they will look like. need to detail and then add some blood etc.
They all have molded world eater shoulder pads, plus other Khorne symbols. I waiting for some brass etching from FW to add some more symbols. Hard to mold the small ones without losing detail.
Here are some chosen, Need to add lots of khorne stuff, maybe a khorne tatoo to each head would be good.
Next I need to base coat my 10 man squad and 8 man squad of raptors.
Well my DP turned up. Nice model but It wasn't what I wanted so out with the dremmel and hacksaw. Changed arm that had the hand thingy and add a wing. Wanted it to be slashing out from its body so slight mod to arm fixed that. Changed pose by twisting 45 degrees and making more upright. Also reposition neck by cutting and twisting. Changed horn to a more demon type position (I think so!). Customised World eater shoulder pad. I will be adding khorne icons but they haven't turned up yet from forge world.
Overall I think its a nice HQ that fits with the armies close combat , frenetic theme.
Hey but I'm supposed to be painting my troops ....
Nice work on the painting so far. Is that termi in the front row, second from the left, finished, or at least, close to being finished? It looks great.
Can't really make out the detail on the DP shoulder pad, so I can't comment on that, but the pose looks alright.
Demon prince has had some khorne brass etching applied. These are really good and I would recommend them to add the little bit extra.
Its quite hard to bend brass around shoulder pad but I will fare up with some GS. Next job is painting....
That looks quite good Bruce, The Brass Etch is really nice stuff.
Love the way the Prince is turning out, would be good to see him painted.
Do FW do a Nurgle sheet yet?, if so I might just have to get me some.
Demon prince base coated. Added another horn to leg and need to remove or cover undivided icon on chest.
Also last rhino for berserkers
Need to get done for NatCon in march .....Just one more raptor to find .
It's been a long time, but I have 'finished' some stuff.
Painting in red and NMM has been a challenge. Red is a ##$### to paint, shade and highlight.
To get the vibrant red I undercoated with white. Yes white. Yes it took forever to completely cover each and every model in red but as this was primarily a painting project it was worth it. I'm pleased with the armies overall look. The defiler needs more work but its getting close to being finished.
I will post some units next and a final pic of the entire army.
more 'finished' stuff.
Thoughts, well its quite different to my original army. No bloodletters, no flesh hounds, no bikes, no HQ on a steed. I suppose it a reflection of a new codex happening half way through the build. I would like to make a true World Eaters army but without rules for cult terminators and demons its not quite as I would have liked.
Next army, Nurgle....
Skulls for the skull throne!!!
Mate that is one top looking Khorne army, well done!
yeah mate great work, so much time went into this army and its good to see it completed 2 thumbs up
Looks the goods mate, nice one!.
I canna play in the Nats anymore unfortunantly, but I will be in one day to check this army out in person and catch up.
Got to admit! That red, the bone, love it long time.
Have to agree with some of the previous posts, The red and bone came out great! And I think your nmm has made a rather good contrast!
An army is never finished.
Some small changes to make more khornate in theme.
Drop a unit of troops and add in a unit of berserkers.
Drop a rhino and use the LR to move the new unit of berzerkers.
Add 2 CC arms onto the dreadnought, will make more khornate.
So that should help. I'd really like some lessor demons but will have to wait and see what happens..
