im thinking about buying the assault on black reach starter set when it comes out but i dont want to play space marines or orks. I used to play chaos a few years ago and am thinking about restarting how easy would it be to convert bothe these armies and anyone got any ideas?
mainly because of the extras you get with the starter set plus its much better value for money.
It should be pretty "easy" too convert the SM's too CSM's (easy just depends on how far you wanna take it). Add some chaos stuff like horns etc.
With the orks you might be able to turn them into daemons.
If you want quick and easy SMurf to chaos converting, Nurgle is probably the easiest. Just greenstuff a bit, drybrush earthtones and your done. Most of my PMs are just space marines.
Alternatively you could just paint them thier Preheresy scheme and file off any Imperial symbols.
What does Slaanesh use to fish?
Haha, wow thats khorney
Actually if you want you could make up your own fluff and incorperate SM models and Chaos Models. Thats a good idea actually
If your just playing with mates or at a GW, you could do the above. Its all up too you.
I'd say you can get away without converting them at all, but just buying a small set of chaos bits from an online shop is all you'll need to do the job. its really that simple. I think refering him to the chaos box set was kind of silly as hes thought this out already.
but search function I'm sure would of already given you heaps of ideas if you bothered to use it, this topic happens a lot.
The easiest would be just to paint them however you would like,file of the imperial eagles and say that it is a chapter that has turned to chaos.For the orks you could just say they found a Nurgle idol thought it was Gork and because they praised it they got boils and sores(easily made with green stuff),then you could also claim that they are daemons of Nurgle.
"First one in,last one out".
Orks into Daemons or mutants pretty invariably looks like shit. (I've tried.)
I'd also suggest just buying a Chaos battleforce; it is a better value if you want Chaos stuff, not some models you could maybe convert to use and some you couldn't use.
