Slaaneshi Chaos Marines - Noise Marine Assembly (Work In Progress)

It's been a long time coming, but I've all but finished assembling my long planned Noise Marine squad. I've used Blood Angels Sanguinary Guard torsos, Forgeworld MK II and MK III heads and gargoyle heads and Dirge Casters from the Chaos Space Marine Vehicle Accessory sprue. Everything else is from the standard Chaos Space Marine box.

I'm hoping to get my hands on some wire tomorrow so I can add some cabling to the sonic weaponry so as to finish them off.

The photos below show the work so far. Obviously some of the models need a bit more cleanup before painting can begin.

Slaaneshi Chaos Marines - Bits & Pieces

It's taken awhile, but I finally seemed to have regained the motivation to paint. And not a moment too soon if I'm going to have this army finished in time for a tournament at the start of May.

In the past week I've completed the second squad of Terminators (I'll upload photos once they've been based - more on this below). I have taken fester's advice and started using green for the eyes, though I've made no attempt at line highlighting thus far. I'll eventually do the same for the first Terminator squad and the Chaos Space Marine unit.

In the meantime, I've been busy sourcing bits for the basing of the Terminator squads. I've decided to go with Tyranid bits for the squad that will accompany my Chaos Lord (also assembled just the other day) and some Storm Guardian heads and weapons for the other.



For the Lord's Daemon Weapon, I decided to take the standard axe head and affix it to the top of the Sorcerer's staff. It's simple, slightly different and does the trick IMHO.

I've also assembled the Rhino with reinforced extra armour and Emperor's Children doors from Forgeworld.
