Default Chaos Marines :

The following are pictures of a few of my standard marines being led by an Aspiring Champion. No real conversions of note here, besides various chaotic horns and* the like. These are mainly just so that others can get a feel of how my scheme works in a group.*Oh, as well, to add a bit more flare most models have the sympbol of chaos undivided painted on their shoulder pads in my favored neon green colour.

Enjoy!:





Hmm, come to think of it, the barrels are drilled out, although that is hardly noticable.

And yes, I do love those styles of helmets.*

C&C Welcome!*

So he is, so he is...But who wouldn't follow someone confident enough to lead his men into battle while doing disco? Let alone, anyone who will do disco at all.

Thanks everyone.

The main colour that I used for the base of the armour is actually an copper-coloured enamel paint that has been shaded by mixes of an acryllic copper paint and GW Tin Bitz. However, with a matt varnish, the garish and overly shiny effect that metallics usually have is lost, and you are left with an interesting finish. This scheme developed over a loooong period of time, from when my marines were thick coats of copper that may or may not have contained a model underneath. :

I'm going to agree with Grimreaper that the contrast between the green and brown looks great. I also like the white on the champions mask.

I fully understand why you love that style of helmet; they look great, though the poor chap on the left seems to have had one horn broken off.
