Slaanesh Army Progress - Chaos Space Marines

HQ:  Slaanesh Daemon Prince with Lash of Submission:
Made from the Daemon Prince kit, with a few Tyranid crushing claws, and hair from the Slaanesh Daemonettes.  Made some modifications to the back to allow another set of arms to be added.  Paint scheme is completely undecided at this point... updates to come

TROOPS: 10 Noise Marines with Sonic Blasters, and Champ with Blast Master:
The Noise Marines were based off the AoBR set.  I took the gargoyle head gun idea from one of the blogs I follow (sorry, I can't remember the exact blog).  OOP Chaos backpacks were substituted and a generous amount of greenstuff was used to chaos'ify them a bit.  I started these models with white primer and used blue, black, and pink washes.  When the washes were applied to the models I tipped them over on various sides so the blue would run to one side and the pink would run to the other, and the black would run down.  As usual these models are unfinished and still need a decent amount paint work.  I am fairly happy with the way these turned out and they gained a decent amount of detail on the blue areas without using any fine brush work.


TROOPS: 6 Summoned Daemons
Fiends of Slaanesh are one of the best elite options for Chaos Daemons but unfortunately they have some of the oldest, unsightly, and expensive models.  This squad was made from a box of Slaanesh Seekers +1 extra model purchased from eBay (project cost: $28 for 190pts, instead of $130+ retail ).

I started by removing the saddle and stirrup from the model with a razor blade, then attaching some left over Ork arms.  I cut the Ork hands off and replaced them with the claws from the Slaanesh Daemonettes.  A few extra spiky bits were glued/greenstuffed to the spine.

Over all this was a fairly simple modification with decent results, and still fits with the overall feeling of Slaanesh.

ELITES: 1 Dreadnought with "run as" Plasma -or- Missle Launcher and Heavy Flamer
This was made from an AoBR Dreadnought with a pound of greenstuff and CCW from an OOP CSM Dread. Tried out a new wash on this, not too sure how happy I was with the effect...

The Chaos dreads don't seem to be that effective due to the crazed rule, but they make a great firing platform when teamed with my Noise Marines.

Plague Bugs - Nurgle Army progress so far - Chaos Space Marines

This is the progress of my ongoing Nurgle Army the Plague Bugs.  I wanted something a little different than most other Nurgle armies so I decided to concentrate less on the disease aspect of the army and focus in on the insect, cloud of flies, fluff a little more.  So it only seemed natural to use Tyranid parts for this project.

We will start off with the Troops, so far I have a set of 10, I know not very Nurgle of me, but it was what I had.  I plan on making 4 more (Champion, 2 special weapons, and vanilla) so I have 2 squads of 7 with special weapons.

Next we have the transport, a Nugle Rhino with Havoc Launcher.  I can run this with extra armor or Daemonic Possesion if needed but the cost rarely seem worth the points.  Hopefully in the new Chaos Space Marine/Renegade/Legions codex we will get some additional options for transport... Dread Claw finally... hopefully...  When the new codex comes out, I will decide on what the second transport will be.

Now for the all impressive Chaos Space Marine Fast Attack section.  Normally would not put any effort into this section, but it was a dual purpose model for my Chaos Daemon army as well.  Unfortunately it does not matter if I run these as my Chaos Spawn, or Beast of Nurgle they perform about the same... poorly.  But since I am running a dedicated Nurgle list, I wanted to include them. Here is the set of 3:

Next up is the HQ section.  One Chaos Space Marine Nurgle Daemon Prince.  I am not finished with the weathering, greenstuff, or additional Nid parts, but here is where it stands now...

Lastly is the Nurgle Defiler, or the Plague Spider.  As with the DP, still need to weather, greenstuff, and some additional Nid bits.  The Plague Spider is equipped with a Heavy Flamer and Heavy Bolter.

Still left to build:
  • 2 squads of 7 Summoned Deamons
  • 1 Greater Deamon (which will double as my Great Unclean One/Kugath for Chaos Deamon list)
  • Unknown Heavy Support tank....
As always comments always welcome...

What model would you proxy this as? Bloodthirster, Skulltaker, Khorne Herald w Chariot, Khorne Daemon Prince

This model was originally created as my Khorne Daemon Prince, but as I started paying Chaos Daemons, I started thinking about what other slots this model could fill.  Here are some possible options:

  • Bloodthirster - always a sound choice
  • Skulltaker - maybe a bit overpriced compared to the Herald, but have heard people swear by him
  • Herald of Khorne on Chariot - also seems pretty like a good option with so many wounds and bonuses from the chariot, he is like a mini-monstrous creature.
  • Daemon Prince of Khorne - probably the worst choice for a DP, but still fun if you are going for a Khorne theme.

As always your thoughts and comments are always welcome...
