The army is painted is composed of: 60 Khorne Beserker Marines, 9 Chosen Marines, a Warlord on a Juggernought, 2 Predator Tanks, 1 Defiler, and a Dreadnought.
I do still need to paint the bases and varnish the army, but the the actual painting of the models is finished. I am pleased with how the army has turned out. I purposely chose a basic paint scheme, not just to allow quick painting, but to give a dark, moody and gritty look to the army, rather than a cleaner look, which I think I have achieved. I also chose this project to get me back into the routine on painting again after a break of over a month, especially in the evenings after work. I was also fun to blog about the daily progress of the army and to show it taking shape, and it really motivated me to carry on with the painting every evening.
All in all I am pleased with the result, and am happy to have been painting again. I would like to thank everyone for taking an interest in the project. I will finish the basing as I go this week, I won't do a daily update on the basing, but will show the completed army in my next blog update on Sunday.
Warlord on Juggernuoght.
The model is a later 1990's one, and is on a 50mm square base to give an idea of the scale. I had the model and thought it would make a good Warlord, surrounded by his squad of Chaosen Chaos Marines.
Again I went for the darker look as with the rest of the army, and I drybrushed gold like the other heroes and Chosen. I also drilled out the barrel of the Bolt Pistol.

On advice from Asslessman I drilled a hole into the Plasma Cannon barrel. I then repainted to barrel end silver rather than the Plasma green I used first, and I think it looks a lot better. I also gave the Dreadnought the red Bloodletter Glaze.
Blood for the Blood God!!!
The whole army.
Side view.What next?
Well apart from basing I am not sure, but I want to keep up the momentum of painting. I do have a wish to paint another army, or some Goblins. I will spend the next couple of days sorting out something :)
