Figured I'd start getting some of my Chaos forces cleaned up and upping the quality a bitsy.
These are the first Cohort of the Malleus Deus Sanguinem. I tend to field berserkers in squads between five and eight models so the projects will reflect the "max" number of models. This squad's champion is sporting a pair of lightning claws. It's one of the Chosen from the Dark Vengeance kit. The rest are various kit bashes from the CSM sprue and the Khorne Berserker kit
Well, this is the first of four berserker squads I'm refreshing for CanHammer. All of my berserkers could use some TLC. They're my oldest army and they really need some attention. I'm hoping to have enough time to debase them as well but we shall see.
Okay. So I'm working on refreshing all my chaos troops. It's started with a couple of models but so many of them need work (not unlike my entire collection). Part of this effort involved a reorg of my squads so Cohort 1 is now being led by a champion with a power fist and bolt pistol.
One of the things I'm doing as part of this endeavour is to give each unit unique heraldry to make em pop a bit as well as make it easier for me to identify models in game. I created this as a starting point:
So I think I've finally settled on how I'm gonna paint the various cloth bits on my berserkers and CSM. I've been going back and forth between dirty white and muted blue. The idea is to capture their origins -- specifically the white and blue of the World Eater pre-heresy iconography.
Im opting for grey. So the colours used will be Mechanicus standard grey as the base. A nuln oil wash. A dawn stone layer and then an Administrarum grey highlight.
