Organized Chaos: Renegade Infantry Squad One — June 24, 2017

Organized Chaos: Renegade Infantry Squad One

The first squad is complete! This represents the first of two squads originating from the Dark Vengeance set. Having been collecting dust for far too long they became the test batch to see how the colour scheme from the Chaos Basilisk and Sentinel set carried over to infantry models.

The ‘rifles’ squad and the ‘assault weapon’ squad to follow also represent the least kit-bashed/modified models for the Warp Cult/Chaos Renegade Forces.

Enjoy!

As always, feedback is welcome!

Organized Chaos: Chaos Infantry Preview — May 2, 2017

Organized Chaos: Chaos Infantry Preview

As aforementioned in the last post, Basilisk Artillery Tanks and Armoured Sentinels need to be complimented with the appropriate levels of Infantry support.

As such, a puzzle of kit-bashes has been in the works. The 110 models you see before you represents a combination of the following:

  • Vraksian Renegades
  • Cadian Shock Troops
  • Cadian Command Squads
  • Catachan Jungle Fighters
  • Catachan Command Squads
  • Imperial Guard Tank Crew Components
  • AoS Chaos Marauders
  • AoS Arch Flagellants
  • Dark Vengeance Cultists
  • Genestealer Cult Conversion Kits
  • A literal crap-ton of miscellaneous ‘bitz’

They have all been thrown together to represent a cohesive yet visually divisive force of that will represent to Troop base of either an Imperial Armour Renegades & Heretics list or a 30K Warp Cult.

Each infantry squad will eventually contain twelve models which means that most of the pictures squads have yet to see their respective Champions and Icon/Standard Bearers.

Also yet to be constructed or converted are a variety of HQ and support units including:

  • Command Squad(s)
  • Enforcers
  • Apostate Preachers
  • Tempestus Scions to be converted to Chaos Grenadiers
  • Heavy Weapons Squads
  • Orgryn Berzerker Squad with Chaos Hounds
  • Greater Brass Scorpion
  • Rogue Psykers
  • Chaos Leman Russ Battle Tanks and Variants
  • Chaos Baneblade Super Heavy Tank

This represents my most ambitious project too date, and as can be seen, just the basic infantry will take a long while to complete. They will follow the same colour scheme as tested on the Basilisks and Sentinels.

As for painting, the first batch will be the Dark Vengeance Cultists. They are the least modified models pictured (really the only modification to them are the addition of Catachan Vox Casters).

Stay tuned for updates

 

Organized Chaos: Completed Chaos Basilisks — April 25, 2017

Organized Chaos: Completed Chaos Basilisks

20170204_12452120170204_124807Greetings,

I have covered most of the techniques used here within the last blog showing off the Chaos Sentinels. The only difference being the greater size of the Basilisks allowed more playing with oil and fuel stains which I hope show up in the pictures.

I am satisfied that I have taken the classic Imperial Basilisk and wreaked heresy upon it.

Some might be wondering what the point of Artillery Tanks and Armoured Walkers may be without infantry to support?

Well, work has already commenced on that part. Stay tuned next time to see the Infantry components.

As always, questions, concerns, comments, conundrums and existential dilemmas are always welcome.
