Welcome to Librarium Online!
I recently increased my 3k army list to 4k and have finally intorduced a unit of 15 Chosen.
To keep with Fluff I have marked them Khornate, Halberds, shields, a War banner in there along with Favour of the Gods for a decent inital roll on Eye of the Gods.
My Idea consisted of using a unit of 12 warriors along with a Chosen Command pack, saving me £22 instead of purchasing alll Chosen packs!!!
Now with this saving of £22 pounds comes the need to beef up my 10 warriors to look more like a Chosen of Khorne.
My idea is to replace around 5-6 heads with Bloodletters, a few limbs here and there with bloodletter demon blades held two handed. Add a few small cloaks from the Marauder spure to differentiate my warriors.
I will also want to chop down around 5-6 Knight lances (as gd as Halberds) Saving me ordering all champion backs for conversion.
The overall fluff is proposed as a group of warriors who have particually caught the eye of Khorne himself. In turn Khorne has granted them a first step on the way to assension by altering thier bodies to form into Bloodletters, whilst maintaining thier armoured forms and initative to slake thier bloodlust.
I will hopefully post pictures soon, I have to say they look pretty Owsum ranked up. Its just a shame my camera sucks and my painting is not the best.
Cool stuff, I'll be looking for those pictures. I wouldn't have really thought of using the Blood Letter heads or weapons. For mine, I swapped around a handful of Chaos Knight helmets and some of the more 'nasty' looking Warrior helmets, and then gave them Knight weapons and shields. It worked out well enough, as now I have two unique regiments of Knights, and a regiment of Chosen with cool shields and more ornate helmets.
I'm not sure if Khorne would ever turn a whole regiment into bloodletters though...
Aghhh! Captain Sarathai you stole my idea!! Well most of it. I was going to use knight heads and weapons and shields!
Screw the spray gun. I paint my own models!
you could also make all the shields flat by carefully slicing of the decoration with a knife and greenstuff them all a khorne mark/logo on it!
that would cool... and maybe try to get all sorts of metall khornate helmets, from the three metall khorn characters, there are spares with those 2 new ones (the one on foot has 2 heads and so does the lord on jugg...) and maybe you''ll find others on ebay
hope this helped
I should have pictures by the 24-25th or something. Away from my models for a little while thanks to a few Examinations >_<
I did leave them with the First rank almost fully painted, just a little more work left to touch them up!
Pictures to follow in the near future!
