Ok, so I'm starting 40k, and decided chaos space marines is the army for me (evil, good fluff, balanced in terms of assault and shooting).
But I don't have much money. At first i was attracted to the assault on black reach set for the rule books, dice templates etc that i'll need, but I don't really want those models.
Then it struck me. Maybe i could convert the space marines into chaos space marines. A few spikes and some black paint and wat would be the difference? Is this reasonably possible? I have some modelling experience from playing lord of the rings, and a lot of spare time, so i think it's something i could do.
Am i missing something obvious here?
Thanks for listening to the silly problems of a noob.
I have a lot of old space marine models i am converting into chaos.
Personally i like the 'clean' look of the loyalist marines over the chaos marines.
Only going to use 2 troop squads of them though. The rest are all Chaos models.
Chaos - 11W 0L 0D
Orks - 8W 0L 0D
Tyranids - 8W 0L 0D
If you have a squad of chaos as well you can mix them into each other, you do need 2 squads at least and AOBR only comes with 1.
Paint them in chaosy colours and file off there aquillas and everyone will be happy
youd still need to shave off the aquilas.
I love Pathfinders.
im making a thousand sons proxy out of loyal marines. I'm going to paint them like smurf, blood angels, space wolves, and salamanders and battle damage the to hell give them skulls instead of heads throw in a "necromancer" (possibly with the chirigon backpack) and i'll have a squad of zombie marines raised from the corpses of my dead enemies to bring the pestilence of nurgle to new hights.
Or thats at least what i'd do if i had some extra loyalist marines.
The Decayed Ones 2500 points of nurgly goodness.
Necron- Ice Wraiths of Scy-mir 2000+
Imperial Daemon Hunters- 1500
oh decayed your mind works in brilliant ways i think i may give thata go myself!
I love Pathfinders.
Decayed: *runs up to you, steals your idea and take credits for it*
