Hey, so i am planning on making a chaos army, modeled on a chapter that recently turned to chaos, so i want to use some normal SM bitzs. Are the chaos and SM bits pretty much interchangable, or is like something drastically different???
also, what are some ideas for other things to get across the recently chaos army? I was thinking maybe using SM dreads instead of chaos and then modeling them to make them chaotic.
and the chapter isn't necessarlily evil, so i won't be using to many bloody and gory stuff and no daemons, don't like em...
They are interchangeable.
Just keep on using those SM bits. Try to find ways to represent SM stuff. Say, Dreadnoughts converted to represent Defilers. Or perhaps Oblits as specially armed Techmarines in Artificer armor with a servo harness. Go wild!
As for not evil, then why use the spiky evil look? Just stick with regular SM models.
Any fluff you want to share?
ill be writing some stuff...
the main idea is something i have noticed in a lot of 40k stuff...
the imperium doesn't like anything that contradicts what it thinks to be true. if there is a conflicting religion, they are wiped out. one of there greatest enemies is change for cry'in'out'loud!...
so the chapter didn't really do anything wrong, just sympathized with a different culture, or something like that, and they got cast out!!!
so ya, if i think up more fluff i'll let u all know
Ah, so you're going for more of a renegade Chapter structure. Well, obviously, stick to the regular Marine stuff in the Chaos 'dex. If you want to use Daemons, well, I've heard of people using these to represent ambushes by cultists/other lightly armed and armored types of models, such as packs of dangerous animals. Greater Daemons, I dunno... maybe represent them with a giant beast that one of your Aspiring Champions has tamed, have him call it into battle? Spawn could be similar, just beasties.
Counts as will be your friend in this endeavor. And yeah, the Imperials are jerks. Part of my own fluff takes that notion on too.
