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.

Looking good. I really like the kit-bashed Prince. The paint is shaping up nicely too.

Thanks Thor, trying to decide on a highlight color for them to add a little pop, any ideas?

I'm a Vallejo fan myself and so I'd use Ghost Grey. It's a blue'ish grey. I think GW's version is Space Wolves Grey.

Awesome work!!

I like your fiends, I had the exact same idea. Yours seem to be more of a success than mine, for the time being. Thanks for the ideas on the what to do with the arms.

Warhammer In Progress said...

Thanks, I thought about making one of them with 4 arms for the Unholy Might model, but never got around to it. Send me a link to yours when you get them up, would love to see your take on them.
