So i have been playing 40k for a little over two years now and i want to start working a custom army in which has a very unique them. Slaneesh has always interested me ever since i have started into the 40k world. so i would like to do a sort of Emperor's children army, but like no holds bars kinda deal. I have just now started reading some of the books for 40k and have no encountered The Emperor's Children, but i have been told they are way more "party craved" in the fluff then how the models are represented. So here is what i ask help with, Emperor's children army they resembles sex, drugs and raveing/rock partying. I seriously want to do rhinos with a small speaker system that plays some techno style rave music and lights to go along with it.
For the HQ of these chaos marines i want at least one Daemon Prince. He/She will of course be marked of Slaneesh and use lash. I was thinking along the lines of a Hentai tentacle monster, maybe based on the keeper of secrets? Ideas are welcomed
The basic Chaos marines are giving me problems, I want to run them with melta guns, but i have no idea on how to model them up for this theme or ideas for a melta conversion. I also would like ideas for the champion, maybe a spiked raver look, or a German Rammstein look with some sort of, uhhh "rubber fist" for a power fist.
The other thing that interests me is i would like to have slaves present modeled into the army. Maybe onto of Rhinos or someting, but i noticed Games Workshop only has two slave models (yes they do still make slaves, and they are nude!), so i need to find somewhere i can get those.
For heavy support i was thinking about running vindicators, but i am at a loss at to what i could do with the theme conversion with them.
Another idea i am toying with, because i think it would look very themed, Havocs that fire missiles shaped like rubber fists or dildos. That just seems so funny to me, and would be easy to do.
If i run noise marines, which i think i should just for the extra flavor, i want them to be some of the good candy to the army. Having a hard time coming up with power armor conversions for this though.
I hope this gives you guys an idea of what i am going for. If you could help me by throwing some ideas or sites to get resources from, that would be great.
Aww.. snap on the idea.. I personally want to do raver/cybergoth esque marines using black and neon colours and adding tubes to the armour..
The EC fluff is absolutely crazy, which is why it's so awesome. On one hand they're by far the nastiest of the Chaos Legions.. they broke off from the siege of the Emperor's palace because murdering the civilian population of Earth was more fun. The forces pursuing them back to the eye encountered whole worlds where the survivors could only beg to be killed to be killed rather than live with the things they've seen. They render planetary populations down into combat drugs so they can get high. In most of the art they also look the most wierd and scary, with giant bulbous eyes held open with hooks and other such things. On the other hand, they have a kind of carnival theme with the bright colours and the old sonic blaster models were actually guitar-guns. Like, not even ironically, they were just guitars with guns attached. You can have great fun playing up the musical side of the legion and the monstrous side at the same time.
When I made my old army, I used slave models on the base of my keeper of secrets.. They're from Asurbadael Vect's Ravager in the Dark Eldar range. They're not naked, but they're suggestive enough to imply sexual things. The one problem I see using them with EC is that they look a bit too.. normal.. for the things EC are supposed to get up to with their prisoners, but they'd be enough to be suggestive at least.

Your right, now that i look at them on a better monitor, they aren't naked. They will still work. So here is another idea for the army. Lesser daemons modeled with poles on all their bases and they are dancing on them, genius.
This has the looks of a very big project you're embarking on. Although I don't see the attraction, I'd love to see your ideas materialized. On that note, some of my tips for you:
- Scour the internet for pictures of glam-rock bands, and 70s and 80s partying
- Use the heads from the metal daemonette models
- Use bare chests so you can paint those with extravagant bodypaint
- The daemon prince should either be a slender hermaphrodite or indeed, as you suggested, a tentacled monster. For the first one, combine the Keeper of Secrets model
with the Lord of Change and Eldar/Dark Eldar parts. For the second one, you could use a Great Unclean One and use a lot of greenstuff/modelling putty to cover up the
filth/holes and use rattails from Skaven for the tentacles
Innovation suffuses this hobby like a tea bag in the boiling water of play.
Keeper of Secrets , yes its pricey but it allready has pretty much all you asked for it
Chaos Marine Melta-guns: Steal some Eldar meltaguns or Wraithcannons or model your own, they look suitably "dildoesque"
Vindicator: Get some plasticard and extend the dozer blade up and towards the front hull so that you can paint a huge picture into the dozer blade with the Demolisher cannon protruding from the middle
Edit: One more huge idea, considering the basing of the models. Buy some black leather, paint psychedelic pink/purple/red tentacles into it, cut circular pieces out of it and base all your models on those.

Thanks for all the ideas. I really appreciate the feed back.
Just so you guys know, i am working on a Daemon Prince of Slaanesh right now. I also have an Slaanesh Icon I am working on. As soon as they are done, I'll post up some pictures.
Ya, I was thinking about doing a similar thing. Maybe not as Crazy, but definitely a very fluffy Slaan((?) see what I did there?) army.
What are some of your ideas? I can't decide how i want the marines them self to look at all.
