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)
- 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
