I have just started building a CSM army for play. I have never played 40k or any other mini war game for that matter, but I painted a warhammer figure when I was like 10 or something and found it in a drawer the other day and couldn't resist. So Anyway, I bought a couple of cheap 3 packs of CSM's and have begun painting them. It's pretty enjoyable just painting! I'm not that great, but my lenses are starting to look good after a brief bit of touch up.
Anyway, my real question for the CSM section is this... Is there any benefit to painting certain setups? I read in the codex that the Black Legion had been seen with Khorne Berserkers etc... I guess thats a Noob question, but I don't want my paint job to limit what units I can have I was planning on encorporating a Khorne Berserker squad for sure.
So yeah, I appologize if my noob-ness is offensive but I really am enjoying this so far and I want to build a formidable CSM army.
P.S. Yes.. I Realize that Black Legion is the "cop out" paint job 4 colors wins.
Paint jobs in no way limit you. Most people use their cult troops painted in the traditional schemes irrespective of what type of army they have.
The best part of chaos is that a couple of Khorne Bezerker squads can be part of a World Eater army, but also appear in your Black Legion or any other list.
Welcome to Chaos, you wont be disappointed as it is probably the best army that covers all aspects of the hobby.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
anyways, as the name implies Chaos; you can do w/e you want to do with your guys as you see fit and then just throw out 'they're chaos' as a reason and it'll be legit...
so the paintjob really doesn't matter, just be sure to try and show their equipment/wargear as best you can on their models (ie a champion w/ powerfist should look a little more brutal than his compatriots while waving around an oversized fist menacingly at the neighborhood kids who run across his lawn.
heck, ork players do it almost daily with "it's orky" about the way that their army looks/plays.
Hey that's Great news! I suppose I'm going to have to play around with schemes a bit then. I'm not a great painter so it will be good for my technique if nothing else. I really appreciate the help guys. Thanks!
