Chaos Cultists!!!

After a fair old time spent painting different types of Space Marines in power armour I thought it was time to do something a bit different just to break up the monotony…
With this in mind I dug old some Chaos Cultists that have been sitting in my pile of shame since they were released in the Dark Vengeance box set back in 2012! (Christ… where did that decade go!)

This gave me a chance to work on some different materials such as fabric and leather; which make a nice change from the smooth ceramite of Space Marine power armour.

I really want to run a narrative, quasi-RPG 40K game soon, with a number of different factions who have normal ‘human’ individuals as the protagonists. These guys will probably form the basis of the chaos cohort for that campaign.

Overall these guys were fun to paint up, so I have already built and undercoated a couple more which I’m planning to work on next!

Flesh Tearers Primaris Reiver Squad… Complete!!

After something of a hiatus due to Covid lockdown I have finally managed to finish off the rest of my shiny new Primaris Reiver Squad.

I have to say I really like these models… I think they look suitably menacing and their lines are just really visually pleasing. I know some people don’t like their grav-chutes but I think they look pretty cool.

I chose to give them bolt carbines for no other reason than they look awesome, however to be honest in game terms I don’t think that they are massive effectively!!
I really think the Flesh Tearers paint scheme fits all Primaris models well, and this is even more pronounced on those warriors who are equipped with the cut-down Phobos armour such as Reivers and Incursors.

There’s a few more figures currently sat on my paint station to be completed; but I’ll probably do another squad of Reivers at some point… maybe with the Bolt Pistol and Combat Knife combination!
