Ok So i've been slightly distracted from my Blood Angels by this silly new 8th Edition of Fantasy. Well, anyway, seeing as 8th is upon us and my old Marauder army needs refreshing and building up i've decided to make a thread about it. Some of these are done, some are being repainted and some are still grey here we are.

This is the 3000pts all ranked up. as you can see the new Editions are in their Birthday suit of Grey.

K'tor, the thrice Bloodied. Lord of Chaos. Old paint job but he's still alright I think.

Brakka, Herald of Vengeance. Battle Standard Bearer. A nice shiney new addition.

Some Chosen Types. New Additions. Think I'll paint these Brass with Silver trim. these are converted from Warrior Legs and Chaos Knight bodies.

A Marauder, Nothing Special. Needs a bit of touching up and, well, finishing really.

Horsemen. Two of these units to do. New additons and only just built!!

The Warshrine. Quite happy with this. He did apear on the Forum a long, long time ago.

What can I say? Captain America actually works for Chaos.

I love your warrior conversions. They are excellently posed and positioned. very nice.
Here's some of my WIP Warriors with halberds. I'll be doing 14 of them, just waiting for my bitz order to arrive.
I just snapped them off for inspiration.
Don't wanna hijack your thread.
They're not that hard to do, but will kill your bitzbox. You need the champion back, the champions outstretched hand with sword or axe and a Chaos Knights Lance. Then you just go to work with the scalpel and the clippers and will have a chore to fit them into a good angle. Good luck if you give it a try.

Compare these to Empire halberdiers. These look just brutal in comparison.
Only thing though is they have one gauntleted hand and one gloved, so I guess they'll pose as Chosen too.

By the way, have some Rep for a great thread.

They rank up perfectly, just have to make sure the shaft doesnt extend far behind the back hand.
Yes, it would have been much easier to make them holding the "lance" in one hand. But theres three problems with that sollution.
1. It looks like they're carrying spears.
2. Leaves the other hand doing nothing. although you could put a shield there, but to what use? Just gives space for another confused debate when playing.
3. This looks SO much meaner.

cutting the models at the waist you say? Nice idea. But I like it like this. if I twisted their waists it would look like they were pointing their halbers at the enemy. Now it look like they're raised ready to chop down - more down to business than just pointing the halberd saying "look how sharp my stick is".

I've been thinking about another way to point the halberds forward, but that would be very difficult. as it is now the back hand is just a normal additional hand weapon with the blade /mace/hammer/axe cut off and then attached to the shaft of the halberd and glued to the body of the warrior at an angle. The angle is almost impossible to do if the warrior is supposed to point the weapon forward. As it is now I just use the warrior champions positioning, I've just connected the two arms with a halberd between them.

Why go the easy way.
It will be pure pain to see these 1 hour worth of modelling a piece get shot to death by cannons.

4 boxes of knights? Seriously? You didnt bitz order?
If I would make this unit of warriors in the same way I would have to buy 14 boxes of Warriors (because, as you probably know, you only get one champion back in each box, I think).

Mine rank up beautifully. no hassle there.

Sorry guys. I got carried away. Meant nothing ill.
It's impossible to steal an idea. An idea might be copied or shared, but never stolen, as it implies I (as the "owner") will become ignorant of it's information after the "theft".

I love sharing my ideas. It's a great testament of it being a good one.

I might have some Knights shields. Are you interrested?
do you have any warrior champion backs+champion arms?
Those are some seriously badass Chosen.
You have those big and scary axes, but where are those nasty jagged sword you get in the Knights box?
That's true. But look at page 454 in the rulebook and you'll see what I'm aiming at.
Give it enough training and honing the skills and you soon reach this level.
I think people are assuming they're Nurgle because they have a greenish sheen.
Those Chosen really look like it now. They're awesome.
They're going quite nicely.
I''ve done 18 now and they will be put in the front ranks. The back ranks will be carrying the halberds as spears.
This break up the silhouette of the unit.

i'm experimenting with a black colour scheme with emerald edges. They will be called the Obsidian Guard and i'll use the Heralds of change list:

But progress is very slow as i'm home with my daughter (and has been for the last 5 months) and now we're off to Greece with the whole family on vacation and my scedule is otherwise filled with muay thai.
So the forum will be without my glorious voice for the coming 10 days now.
I'm back from Rhodos!
Your lord looks awesome. But scrap the eyeliner. Try to get a more glowing effect, like some people do on space marines where the eye lenses illuminate much of the helmet.
Maybe he's dedicated to Slaanesh? (but I know he's not)
Much better. The glow is subtle, but still there. And no eyeliner.
