Children of the Khorne part 4: The beast of metal and blood

On pitsoned leggs it came, roaring with the fury of bound deamons.

A Deamonsmith acompanied it, he told me he was send by glorious Khorne and pledged fealty to me and my cause.

He swore to me he could build more machines of metal, flesh and warpspawn and all he asked in return were the souls of slain victims, I did not deny him.

Months of nothing and now 2 entries in a row, must be something I ate...

I always had a thing for Defilers ever since they came out 10 or so years ago, it has remained a favorite of mine.
So logically a new one would find it's way into my army, there was no other way.

These things can ditch out a world of hurt and can take some in return, if they were good before they became even better now.

It has a nice battlecannon wich can make stuff go 'splut' from a distance and 2 great fat chunky claws to cut things up and I haven't even started on the heavy flamer and the reaper cannon.. juicy.

One of it's claws is posed as if about to strike something unfortunate and I added some spikes and chains along with a few Khorne glyfs to show it's allegiancy.

This brings me now to 750 points worth of Chaos Space Marines painted.
Next will be a nice unit of Raptor: jumpinfantery.
These will be the main part of the 1000 points force I've got planned.

Game on!!!

Children of the Khorne part 3: Gatherings

And as I was promised, more flocked to my banner.

We butchered in the name of the Bloodgod all who dared to defy us, taking their skulls and offering their souls to Khorne.

It's been a while since my last post, truth is I couldn't be arsed to put paint on my miniatures but I seem to have found my 'drive' again.
Also december was quiet a busy month work-wise and I wasn't able to paint anyway since the Missus banned my 'little guys' and paints to The Dungheap during the festive days, must be a chick thing.

Next in line are 10 more Khorne berzerkers and a Rhino.
Personally I believe that every aspiring champion 'tunes' his, or her, Rhino to their own taste and this geezer has a thing for skulls, spikes and chains.
This unit has a minor conversion too, I gave the champion 2 close combat weapons and took a suitable head from a Space Wolf sprue.
He's positioned as if he's screaming his rage to the heavens.

A good thing in this period on 'non-brushing' is that I had time to think about my army, initially I wanted it to be a 100% close combat army but this just doesn't work.
A defiler (wich is in it's final stages of painting) was quickly added along with some Terminators and Raptors.
Further planned are an Aegis Defence Line (basecoated) and a small unit of heavyweapons Havocs (ordered).
2 units of Chaos Cultists (cannonfodder), a flyer (being converted) and a unit of Chosen are in the pipeline, not to mention the new Deamons who came out this weekend who will serve as allies.

For the meanwhile I'll concentrate on the Defiler since this will bring my force up to a neat 750 points.

Laters all!!!!
