If you mailed them to me, it would only take five thousand years.

Out of curiosity, how many pieces were in your army, and what was the colour scheme you were going for?

-Daemon Prince
-18 Marines
-2 Aspiring Sorcerers
-4 Raptors
-1 Raptor Aspiring Champion
-9 "Khorne Berserkers"
-1 Skull Champion
-3 Rhinos
-3 Obliterators
-5 Chaos Terminator Lords
-Defiler
-2 Tzeentch Dreadnoughts
-1 Contemptor Dreadnought
-5 Elite Chosen

Basics
-Dark Blue Armor plates
-Metallic Silver trim, few gold accents
-White Cloth with a black stripe down the middle front
-Demonflesh is a Wash of Purple/bright blue splotches (Daemon princes exposed skin, the claws on some backpacks
-Horns and bone bits would be white with a light wash of devlin mud. (Hm, but maybe they should be pristine white ivory)
-Red Eyes/Glow

A bolter and chainsword link, but I'm not entirely sold on it yet.

Upon posting this I'm realizing what an insane task this is going to be, so nevermind about outsourcing it. Goddamn.

Sidenote: I may be able to buy my bases I've been wanting come friday depending how the paycheck pans out.

"Hey I can totally buy those bases now!"

Out of stock, out of stock, out of stock.

 ::(:

Time to look for some different ones I guess. Or at least a different composition.

Thanks to a friendly reminder from BŁge...

25mm Bases for: 1k Sons/Sorcs/Chosen
25mm Bases for: Berserkers
25mm Bases for: Raptors
40mm Bases for: Terminators
40mm Bases for: Obliterators
60mm Base for: Tzeentch Dread #2
60mm Base for: Contemptor Dread
60mm Base for: Daemon Prince

This is more for my own personal reference. Subject to change as always. This is what's needed to finish my army, at this point. I could order them all - the Straight from Hell will be back in stock shortly.

Tossing the idea in my head of making all the bases uniform, or keeping them different. I have a fluff in my head for it all and it could work either way. The appearance of different units on different bases is.. eh. I don't know.

Bought the bases. They'll get here when they get here due to the ones for the berserkers being "Special order" but I'm in no real rush. The next step after I receive the bases will be to go figure by figure, tear them off the old base, perform a final perfection cleaning and inspection, then put them on their new base. After that, I will be able to prime them all.

My concern with the bases however are the ones that are at angles. I may have to re-pose a few figures. I ordered more than the exact number of bases due to the random nature - I want to have options.

This also means I finally get to build the Contemptor and second Tzeentch dread. I'm very interested in finishing the Contemptor due to the sheer number of pieces and poses of the figure. I may have to craft a staff and make him Sorcerer-looking, but we'll see.

Hmm. Upon checking my links again, the ones for the Raptors and the Obliterators have been marked out of stock now. I hope they were able to fill my order and I was the person to push them into out of stock. :/

I think they'll look fantastic. Have you started painting your dudes yet?

No. There's mold lines and shit to get rid of still, so doing any painting before transferring bases and giving it a final once over would be kind of pointless. At least in my process.

The Alien bases for the obliterators were kind of spur of the moment, but they look mechanical without any fleshy bits - antithesis of normal obliterators really. So those bases will make them look chaos-y enough, assembled by chaos perhaps.

Everything else shipped, except for:

Ordered: 3   Shipped: 2   SMM BRAL0012   Scibor: Aliens 40mm round bases
Ordered: 1   Shipped: 0   MAS B00423   Spooky Bases, Round 60mm(1)

I'm okay with this. It eliminates some options for my Obliterators, but there's a chance I'll like what I get anyway. And the base for my Daemon prince can definitely wait - I've already done a lot of the finalizing work on him as far as mold lines go.

Played a game last night and had a defiler survive 6 assualt phases locked in combat with two separate Genestealer squads before he finally went down.

At this point I'm working on Chaos-ing up my Stormblade, and I'm having a really hard time working on it. I want to replace the barrels on the Lascannons and bolters but I can't figure out how to cut that flat so I can get the chaos barrel attachments on. And I feel like I want to get a model to stand next to it like the repair chief or something. Maybe one of those Techmarines that come with the Thunderfire cannon. Or maybe one of the Iron warriors Warsmith?

Current plan:
-Chaos up Stormblade
-Chaos up Contemptor
-Clean models
-devise paint scheme
-prolong painting by buying new models/vehicles

So hey, idea. I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with Air Brushes/Sprayers?

Basically I want to use this on my whole army as a base coat then paint in the other details later. I know I'd need that paint + thinner + sprayer, but I was wondering how far I'd really have to go or if it's common that someone at my LGS could do it?

New chaos codex is out next month. As well as the 6th edition starter box set: Dark Angels vs Chaos.

I'm not entirely sold on the new models, but they look nice at least



I think instead of cultists I'm just going to run Imperial Guard units.

Those cultists would be pretty sweet as villains in some kinda Mad Max or other post-apocalyptic game.

Oh, absolutely. I just don't like them as chaos cultists. I only like one of them (The style of row 1, #4.) , but most of them.. No thanks.

I saw in an old issue of White Dwarf that one of their designers had converted a company of Imperial Guard into chaos cultists, complete with nicked-up armour, autoguns and skull helmets. It still baffles me that they can go from "custom army" to "chapter approved" for something like chaos cultists, yet they drag their feet on Sisters of Battle because apparently they can't get the robes and hair to look right. :rolleyes:
