Default Bringing the Chaos! Ideas on changing CSM to look like chaos not spikey SM

With the new codex comming out I was thinking how are the going to re-model CSM's, im not sure if everyones been picking up on the ever growing changes to the SM models as they keep getting a more holy look.

Does it mean we are going to get a more unholy look?

I think more warped armour or a boxset/sprue that has the parts to make more chaos like armour (lke that of the daemon prince) is the way forward for the CSM range. GW seems to like Daemons so who knows we may get that vibe running down the army more.

Ideas from you guys please.

I personally think that they need more chaotic stuff - big goat style horns, skulls, that type of stuff. They could also benefit from some tattered robes and probably styled to look like pre-heresy armour: after all thats where they come from!

They should also have their stats bumped up a bit: just to make them feel more deadly!

Basically just a huge amount of personalisation!

Not just by us the gamers, but have each marine with their own personal gear.

I'd say more gargoyles. These guys are supposed to be archiac and threatening. Gargoyles are both

More Pipes, Tubes, and stuff on the Armor. Less sophisticated, and more baroque. Plus Horns and tentacles are also good. Maybe include a bit of greenstuff in each box of marines .

I don't know about having bare arms in the box set, you can always just get a chaos marauder box and combine it with the marine box (the mutation spruce arms fit both, so marauder arms should fit marines).

I thought legions like Thousand sons and Alpha legion, Nights lords, etc, would be pretty normal in appearence, considering the first is immune to mutation, and the latter tend to be less trusting of the chaos gods. I really cant see a mutated Alpha legion running around, with tenticles, and falling apart armour...

But there should be more individual wargear, and earlier armour like the guy further above said, and they should also have better stats.
