So for the past 2 1/2 years, the entirety of the time that I've been into WH40K, my army has been the Chaos Space Marines, with a brief fling with the Eldar and now an experiment with the Blood Angels. However, the whole time, the good ole CSM have been my steady primary force.
Here is the first part of the Project Log for my CSM army, the Venom Guard. As of now here are all of my completed models:
The Wrathful - Lord of the Venom Guard
Grathagullok - Defiler
Squad Bravvick - Berserkers
Squad Paelleoth - Berserkers
Squad Finarius - Chaos Space Marines
Squad Hektar - Chaos Space Marines
Squad Phagram - Plague Marines
Squad Zecharias - Raptors
Squad Anderan - Raptors
Cult of Heziriah - Obliterators
Vindicator and Rhinos
(Note: the random Black Legion rhino was the first I painted back in '08, and it took me so long that when I switched from the Black Legion to my own custom army I didn't want to strip it... so it remains)
As a colour-blind person, I'm fairly happy with how everything has turned out. As a non-colourblind reader, hopefully you will be too.
The general paint scheme has been:
Lower legs - Scorpion Green
Upper legs/chest/arms/helm - Goblin Green (or dependent upon Chaos God, i.e. red for berserkers)
Trim - Tin Bitz
Other highlights done in either mithril silver, boltgun metal, etc.
The very liberal application of Devlan Mud in most cases, and Badab Black in limited, gives the dirty-appearance to the armour.
The one thing I'm not happy with after finishing the last 3 plague marines a year after the others is the flesh tones on the green-stuff. I'll have to probably repaint these to give them a better look.
Things left to paint:
11x Terminators (I've had these forever, am finishing simply out of principal)
1x Land Raider (same as the termies)
9x Thousand Sons
8x Noise Marines (had to custom-build the sonic blasters - so stupid the box only comes with one)
