After a lengthy hiatus from 40k, soon there shall be an onslaught of renegades and corrupted mutants.
Dusted off after a lengthy interment, such things as my Nightlords, an Iron Warriors detachment, and the reanimated remnants of my original Black Legion are being reformed into a usable force.
Its been over 5 years since Ive painted or played any of my chaos marines, the 2007 Champions of Chaos event was the last tournament I played in, and the only games my Night Lords army was ever fielded for.
Night Lords got a bit of a short stick on this Codex, but the overall codex is good, so they will be the main core of my troops for the time being. As the last time they were fielded they were an all infantry army, theres a large core of troops to work with and troop heavy armies sem like they'll work well in this edition.
So, my biggest initial project will be a Demon Prince. I wont use the GW plastic kit, and I have a conversion/sculpt I started in 07 but never finished because I pretty much quit 40k. But it will be a fun model to finish, my skillset now is more refined so I can get much better results.
Once I make sure the Prince I have in mind is legal, and maybe even if it isn't, I'm going to start serious sculpt work as soon as my order of art supplies from Blick arts arrives(hopefully the 10th). I've got a set of silicone clay shapers that should make some of the sculpting much easier.
Later today I should have the parts gathered, and I'll take some pics of what work is already done and will try to closely follow the progress in case anyone is interested in how the sculpting progresses.
But, the current plan is for a Khornate Demon Prince, Axe of Blind Rage, Power Armor, mounted on a Juggernaut.
Now- a monstrous creature cant really ride the existing juggernauts, so, the Prince will BE the juggernaut. Think Demon+Juggernaut+centaur= Juggetaur Demon Prince.
I think the only other hold up on this plan might be if I decide to scrap the old metal juggernaut and try to find a Bloodcrusher one, the sculpt on those is just so much better. It would save me alot of metal cutting to get the old one to do what I want.
