Chaos Manguything!

So, in 8th edition Warhammer 40K the Chaos Space Marines include a new unit which is sorta/kinda a Chaosified Space Marine Chaplain - called a Dark Disciple or somesuch.

They're a decent little unit and I was cruising the eBays a couple days ago and saw the lovely little Kurtha Sed (a model I've sold off on several occasions...)

It struck me that with a few modifications he'd be a good Dark Disciple fella.  After quickly modifying and painting him I may find a variety of uses for him (sorcerer, lord, champion, etc.)

I'm really pleased with the result.  Just a simple backpack/head/arm swap.  Armed with a combi-plasma and a power maul.

Jain Zar, Storm of Silence

Well, I tried to paint Jain Zar.  It just didn't work out the way I wanted, but I'm not overly fond of her anyway, so I'll leave it as is.  I don't know how much table-time she'll see.

Chaos Lord and Obliterators?

So I had a box of Tartaros terminators standing by and I was about to create another Terminator squad when I decided...not to.

I made up a version of my as-of-yet-unnamed Chaos Lord in Terminator armour instead...

Then I had four more terminator bodies.  I decided I'd make some Obliterators.  Unfortunately I hate the GW models so I thought I could kit-bash ones I'd like. Turns out I was somewhat disillusioned with my kit-bashing abilities.

I'm not stoked with the results.  I painted them weird-agent just for fun, and wasn't even that thrilled with the paintjob.  However, they're done and I'll use them until I get fed-up and eBay them.

Assault Marines (who don't fly so well...)

<Performs rage reduction exercises...>

So I finally broke out of my painting slump.  I was excited yesterday to get some work in on some Chaos Assault Marines yesterday - I decided to use up the old resin jump packs I had laying around and I finished these guys this morning.

Then I dropped them. 


On a brick staircase.

I broke four of them...and my ire was well and truly raised.  I also have a chainsword hiding somewhere in the grass in my back yard.  I was able to superglue the resin backpacks on and replace a chainsword, but I'm secretly angry that I broke so many of them.  I think they're fixed, but I've marked some on the base which may need further attention.  I tried to stress test the rest of the arms and jump packs and I think I found all of the broken stuff.  This kind of thing really puts me in a foul mood so I'm glad I was able to fix them quick enough.

Keen-eyed geeks will notice the colour shift.  I was going to make these into a separate chapter for the Lead Adventure forum, but I got lazy and just made them into my Chaos force.  They are Skeleton Bone based as opposed to Necrotic Flesh but they fit in fine I think.

Warhammer 8th tokens - test batch.

Created some tokens for use with Warhammer 40K 8th edition (and for use with a variety of science fiction games, including older 2nd ed. 40K games).  The test batch arrived, will be making some revisions and adding a few.

New arrivals and a 40K 8th ed. Score Card.

Some new eBay finds showed up for me to flesh out a few Eldar units.  I also whipped up an 8th ed. score card for the local group that plays 40K locally.

And here's the score card:
