Dark millennium faction collection: Harbinger Legion- Chosen

Dark millennium faction collection: Harbinger Legion- Chosen

The Chosen are veteran marines who have seen many battlefields and the slaughter that follows from their bolter and blade. Unlike most Chaos Space marines, the Chosen are well versed in combat, arming themselves with rare and finer weaponry than the renegade marines.


For my Chosen, I’ve kitbashed mine using the Chaos Warriors kit mixed with spare parts from various Chaos Space marine kits. I wanted the unit to look like a renegade elite who have crudely modified armour, after years of disrepair and neglect for maintenance. The unit is devoted to Nurgle, so I’ve made sure to paint the Chosen with plenty of rust, oozes and sickly colours.


First three Chosen, armed with a Plasma gun, blade and bolter pistol and gun.


Second set of three are armed with Meltagun, Boltpistol, Icon bearer and Boltgun.


The unit champion is armed with a Power fist and Plasma pistol.

This unit however is not quite done yet, as I’ll need three more Chosen models in order to have a full strength unit. I’m currently trying to build three more Chosen, but spare similar Chaos Space marine parts are scarce.

Next up, I’ll be showing my re-painted Rhino, that will be attached to my Chosen unit. Once a *Word Bearer Rhino, now it’s filth encrusted with rust and grime (*long time readers may remember my Word Bearers Rhino a couple of months ago).

Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Chaos Terminators

Dark Millennium Faction Collection: Harbinger Legion- Chaos Terminators

Rarely is it seen for a Chaos Lord to be at the forefront of battle shrouded around by his elite guards, the Chaos Terminators. Ancient armour worn by those who have proven their loyalty and skill to their master on the battlefield, these veterans are experienced with both might and destruction from most offensive attacks.

These were a long time coming, after using a plastic tub full of dettel to strip the paint off the models for a week (this was done all the way back in the summer!). After eight years of neglect in storage, it was finally time to get this unit painted to fit with the rest of my collection.

It’s a relief now that the unit can finally be displayed with a fresh coat of paint. Although the ramifications of my amateur days still linger on to the models, the shoulder pads are glued the wrong sides and some of the details are still covered.

Next up, elite renegade veterans known as Chosen, join the Harbinger Legion on their endless reaping of Imperium controlled planets. Clad in various parts of salvaged armour taken from their hated brethren, the Chosen are favoured by the Chaos Lord Axxoin when they join him on his naval hunts.

Release date for Dark Millennium Faction Collection post series

Today, I can announce when the first of the Dark Millennium Faction Collection post will be published. Set (or mark) your calendars for the 21st of November!

This post would be very short if I ended it on that, so, I’ll share a teaser of the first post to come (The model for the previous post teaser will be coming soon!)

Big guts for big tusks! Blessed by Nurgle!

Thank you for reading this post! I would like to thank Ann for her brilliant suggestion on the teaser images for ‘ The Harbinger Legion 2.0 (Coming Soon!)’. The suggestion was a really creative idea (I wont spoil it here) that added more character to the upcoming model. Thanks Ann!

Canvas painting on Lord Tennyson part 4 (final)

Canvas painting on Lord Tennyson part 4 (final)

After a day of drawing, and a total of three days of painting, I’ve finally completed my final piece canvas painting on Lord Tennyson’s statue. Using eight years of experience using acrylic paints on small plastic models, my skills and knowledge on using best out of acrylic painting would help me to paint to this degree of skill.

I’ve tried to keep away from using greys for the statue colours, as I wanted to try a small highlight of colours to show more depth and contrast to the facial expression and clothing highlights. Whilst some would disagree with this choice (totally fine by me if you disagree), but I thought I’d try it out and leave my comfort zone. I think it’s paid off with the final outcome, thanks to all of my previous practice sample canvas paintings that I’ve done.

Christmas card sale

Great news! If your traveling to Lincoln for the ‘Lincoln Christmas Market’ event, I’ll be having this painting printed as Xmas cards for my Colleges pop up shop. The dates are from the 7th to the 9th of December. I’ll be showing what my Xmas card product will look like, as well as the location and price on a new post coming soon.

The Harbinger Legion series v2.0* is coming soon! Structured in a similar way as my AoS faction collection series, this post series is dedicated to the grim darkness of the 41st millennium.

This collection series will be focusing on my renegade Chaos Space marine collection, called the Harbinger Legion.

Here’s a few photo teases of my first model that will be featured in the series. Enjoy!

Very soon, I’ll be post the dates on when this series will be starting. Until then, I look forward to seeing you soon.

*= v2.0 meaning that my first attempt (v1.0) was stalled due to uncertainty of wether I’d be playing 40k 8th, and If my model collection would fit into Death Guard or Renegade marines army.
