I’ve started working on Jarl Vandrad Gorebeard, leader of my Renegade Great Company and counts as Logan Grimnar. Still very early days for this one yet. I’ve done a bit more work since the pic above, which I’ll get to in a moment but first I’ll show some unpainted pics in full so you can see how he’s been put together. The torso is one of the Forge World Terminators conversion kit torsos (the head is part of the same sculpt). The legs are from the plastic Chaos Terminator Lord and the weapon arms are from the plastic Wolf Guard kit. The axe was originally a Thunder Hammer but I cut the hammer head off and swapped it for an axe head to get a nice open pose and a lengthy axe haft to imply that it can be used one or two handed as per the rules for Logan’s Axe Morkai. The cloak is also from the Wolf Guard kit but I’ve trimmed it down as I thought it was too long, regal and generally unbarbarian like so I shortened it and cut parts out so it’s more like the cloaks used on the fantasy chaos warriors etc. These last two pics show roughly where I am with the painting at the moment. Still a long way to go, tidying some bits up as I go as well so it’s all a little messy for now. Finished blocking in the main armour colour and have done about 3 layers of shading so will move on to the highlights once I’ve started blocking in some of the other colours (had a go at the red on the shoulder pad just to get a feel for the contrast between the colours there).
Well, it is finally here!

I would like some help to attempt to answer the question of what units from Codex: Chaos Space Marines would be suitable for use in a Sons of Malice themed army in today’s post. As with many other people in the hobby, I recognise the Sons of Malice as Malal’s own chapter. In brief, Malal is the renegade chaos entity who opposes the other big four. Hence immediately, to build a Sons of Malal themed army, I reckon it is safe to rule out all those models who possess the mark of the big four. Explicitly: that immediately rules out plague marines, rubric marines, bezerkers, and noise marines. But what of the other entries in Codex: Chaos Space Marines? Although we wouldn't be able to take any named characters as is, there may be the potential to use some of them in a different guise based on effects.
