Oh the Heresy... converting Space Marines to Chaos.

Hello.

Its been forever since I updated my blog.  I suck.  Anyways, I get a lot of models used off of Ebay.  Its my favorite thing ever.  So I recently picked up some Sanguinary Guards... now because I dont always like the standard Chaos Marines I always like to convert the standard Marines inot the ways of chaos... awwww yeah.



Heres the models, they came in decent shape, not too much paint on them, just some serious silver undercoat... First I dropped these fuckers in some Simple Green for a day or two, scrubbed them up and now they are ready to get chopped up. 


whoever had these before used plastic cement unfortunately, so a few chunks of plastic came with the arms and wings, nothing that the exacto blade doesnt fix... I hate plastic cement... it really makes taking off arms and parts a pain in the ass.


The Dremel strikes!  I had to grind down the neck pocket quite a bit as the plastic from the original head was still in there...


I have a nice chaos head, and a sweet chainsword and bolt pistol to go on this fella...



So I get the wings re-positioned and get the arms glued on... this took a little time to get the wings right, but way better than they were before... it also took quite a bit of super glue... also started the initial dremeling, getting rid of that stupid Blood Angels stuff haha...



so now I throw the sweet as Chaos head on... also I use the Dremel to create pits and weathering in the armor... once Im done with that, I go over the Dremeled bits with plastic cement (I know I said I hated it earlier, but for this its awesome, it melts down the plastic and leaves it smooth)...


I continue to get my Dremel grind on... leaving this badass looking roughed up, but thats the way Nurgle likes it...

now hes ready to paint!



so next post I will paint this guy up... going to try something new with this one...

  1. I love getting used models off ebay. The only problem is that sometimes you get really nicely painted ones and you can't bring yourself to strip them and do your own colour scheme.
