Hi all

This is a the start of my Chaos Epic project and I wanted to start a bit of a log rather than just random FB posts. I got a bunch of normal Space Marines and vehicles which I plan to make more chaotic! Most of my 40K knowledge is from Rogue Trader days where Traitor marines were just painted differently but I decided to added some extra parts to make them more chaotic. I will added some additional figures from Vanguard such as Cultists and Defilers over time.

Before settling on a chaos god I did a test paint of a couple of Rhinos. I was trying out a couple of different schemes - one Emperors Children (Slannesh) and Thousand Sons (Tzeentch). I'm not worried about mixing different chaos legions and gods but i have chosen to stick with Tzeentch.

Rhino conversions
I added spikes and skulls etc to the rhinos after going through all my spare WHFB and 40K spare parts.

Landraider
For these I added lots of spikes and skulls. Also I replaced some of the weapon sponsons with 28mm fantasy arms.

For this first batch of landraiders and I went for a mixed colour scheme. The Thousand Sons had red armour before they broke away and blues afterwards so I went with a red and blue combo on these vehicles with gold highlights. I wanted them to be very colourful (as thats what Epic is to me). They were painted with a few layers and then washed.

Rhinos
I used the same scheme as the landraider and painted the big skull gold. I will use different colour combos for the my vehicles as they are chaos and not as uniform as the loyal marine chapters.

More soon as I have already finished some other bits.

Nice oldschool look you have there, simple and effective. Reminds me of playing back in the good old days in the last millenium. Looking forward to see more.

Thanks guys.

My next lot of conversion is a bit harder. I decided to convert some normal marines to make the look more chaosy. These figures are a mix of the first epic marines and later versions. I used some plasticard strip which I cut to different shapes and added the tall bit behind their heads. Another feature that I noticed with chaos marines is their large backpacks so I added some new backpacks. I raided my bits box and added parts such as individual 1/72 track links (from ww2 tanks), 40K Dark Eldar spikes and what every seemed to fit.

Excuse the poor photos as I had already undercoated them white with I started the conversion.

And here a photo with the base colour and its easier to see the details

Absolutely amazing. I wonder how they'd look next to old chaos plastics...

Awesome,

As said they look really effective, very fiddly to do but well worth it, always loved the early sm sergeant minature from gw. Look forward to seeing these finished, very unique and decent looking stands they will make too ;)

Also a few weeks ago I made a few objective markers. Its a cool chance to make some interesting looking pieces and it was fun. I could make many more but I dont have an excuse.

Most are using stuff from 40K bits and the drums/boxes are from Leven miniatures, the radar dish os from Scotia-Grendel. The Eldar40K parts are also very useful for scifi objectives.

The first batch of 6

and another couple. I got a bit carried away with these and spent far too much time scratch building them. One represents an old ruined gun and the second is a Comms building made from lots of different parts from my bits box.
