A quick post here to round off the month… I finished painting the last of my kill team terrain that I got from the Sector Sanctoris kill zone.
All were painted in acryllics then given an oil wash to bring out the details. A chaos cul;tist made his way intosome of the photos from a sense of scale. I may go back and add some zombie arms poking through one of the grates yet… undecided on that as it would involve basing it.
It will be good to game with fully painted terrain now.
PS- here is a picture of me in my favourite Tshirt for IRO’s March challenge….
GW briefly sold the sprue of the chaos models from the BlackStone Fortress game seperately. I picked a set up to use as a Kill Team as it has some interesting models in they should play different to what I already have. The mix of figures you can have really appeals to my in fluff/ lore terms as it seems to encapsulate the idea of a Chaos Warband really well in a way that hasn’t been done before.
I’ve just finished up the first half of that box.
The Rogue Psyker and Chaos Space Marine.
The Traitor guard (lovely figures these- wish more poses were available).
I’ll start work on the Beastmen and Negavolt Cultists as well as the bigger pack of cultist to go with them
I was kindly given some of the old chaos Spaqce Marines by a friend so decided to paint them up as the infamous Alpha Legion. Notorious for the cunning and deceit, and the subject of many a meme, they look quite fancy in teal and silver. Also in the game lore they make extensive use Chaos cultists which is something that appeals. I also bought the commander from the Blackstone Fortress set seperately to go with them.
Within the squad I have a leader with power fist, a heavy bolter, a flamer, a standard and then a mix of bolters and chainswords with bolt pistols.
I thinking of getting a box of the fallen to convert and paint up in robes to play on their in universe nature.
Either way what I have now will make for a good Kill Team force.
This is going to be the leader and centrepiece for my army- I really enjoyed painting him up and went to town with the washes and detailing. I imagined him as a Chaos Marine who has achieved his aim of becoming a Chaos Champion, rather than ending up as a Chaos Spawn, as seen in the previous post. Those 40k fans of a certain vintage will remember the Chaos campaigns you could run from the Realms of Chaos books. I alwasys fancied that sort of narrative driven skirmish campaign. I guess Necromunda fulfills that need now but I may yet go back to the old Rogue Trader ideas.
Next up I’ve got some more Pox Walkers- can never have enough of them and a pair of Chaos Spawn. Not sure how effective the latter will be in a game but they’ll be a fun, and as importantly thematic, addition to my army.
Given that the local club where I play Necromunda has been closed since lockdown I thought it would be a good time to get the next 10 of my gang painted… I know that makes 30 but it gives me plenty of options to swap out models as my gang grows in campaigns (which will hopefully restart sooner rather than later). Also I still had some of the Forge World Weapon parts to use up.
The only down side is I’ve gone off the colour scheme I picked for them now. I’ll still use them as they are a good gang but I was less enthused about painting them than I thought I would be.
