~The Thraxos incident~(LatD and Daemons)

Post  Paz on Sun Dec 07, 2008 7:04 pm

Now for something completely different! But not really. After having won some forge world and rough rider stuff at the food bank tourney recently, i decided to create a Lost and the damned army to escort my daemons onto the field during apocalypse, and so I could have a horde army for once!
The patron theme of the army is Nurgle (because of the preachers from forge world I won) with Alpha legion champions leading the rebellion! I am pretty excited about doing this army, as I will be able to use true scale marines without having to make a bizillion. Without further ado, the beginnings of a terrifying log of chaos!

So far..



First Alpha Legion astartes





Forgeworld nurgle preacher (the sword was all wonky so i replaced it with a priestly mace, and the louspeaker staff broke, so on goes copper wire!)



his little sidekick



Roughriders! I love the idea of horse cavalry in a world of lasers and tanks, so, using elysian heads, cadian torsos, roughrider metal lancers and chaos marauder legs and horses, viola!



sarge with power weapon



See, I wanted a flamer, but i thought: If you are shooting flames from a horse, you don't want your horse catching aflame. so longer flamer!

Easy maybe, but I think thats what make them look awesome.. ! Good work, an impressive army indeed.. and it's getting better all the time. Your Daemon princes with wings are fantastic and you already know how I feel about the plaguebearers.

I've been working hard to prepare for the IG release later this year, so my Latd can grow and prosper. As the latd list won't really work now, I've been thinking of ways of using CSM in an Ig army, when it hit me, Grey knights counts as!
Now, I wasn't sure if people would still play me, so I created a warseer topic, and the overwhelming response was "yes".

~"would you play me if I did this"~ thread

So away I went! I started off thinking of how to wysiwyg world eaters to be grey knights in power armor, until i was reminded of how a nemesis halberd looked a lot like Cam's chain glaives on his emperor's children chosen. I didn't want storm bolters mounted on their wrists, so i incorporated them into the glaves, ala adeptus custodes. I also wanted these 'uber' traitors to look older and more fuedal than their current counter-parts, so I used marauder shields and chaos mortals warriors legs (i got the idea from a tut Doghouse on warseer did). My first try:



Making the bodies into marines is tedious, but here is the rest of the sqad WIP sans the justicar/skull champion:





Still some more detailing to do, such as attaching belt buckles, grenades and trophies, as well as chaos banding on the armor.

For the bases, I wanted to do something different than the usual boring sand and barb wire, so I decided a cool and easy way to make the army more story themed was factory/hive city bases!



Playing around with the skull champion's base, I went a little crazy, deciding to do a bit of a story base.



Raa giant axe of death!







poor press gang menial.. sniff.... Razz

And Finally, my first IG sargeant!





more to come

Pascal, you are a bastard! And I mean that in the nicest way. Impressed as always.

I think the Grey Knights counts as in an allied list would be perfectly fine and I would have no problems at all playing you.

The berserkers look good so far, but I'm assuming you'll be smoothing out the backs a bit? Everything else is looking good though, good job man.
