Possessed Chaos Space Marines

09/18/2016 1 comment

Here’s a tale I’m sure many veteran wargamers are all too familiar with.  Back in 2013, I bought a box of Possessed Chaos Space Marines with some left over birthday money.  They then went to the back of the queue as I had so many projects on.

In early 2014, shortly after my wife and I bought our house, I remembered I still had these chaps on ice so I released them from their sprue prison and started to paint them.  I then got bored, moved on to another project then picked them up again four months later.  This is the state in which they remained, languishing in my Drawer of Shame, until two days ago.

You see, I have a 3,000 point game against Trenchmate Tim tomorrow (it’s a Scottish holiday) and I thought I’d bring out some new units.  Fortunately, my wife’s been working all weekend (she has a looming deadline) so I’ve escaped chore-free and I’ve been able to dedicate this free time into finally finishing these gents.

This is alas, not the longest-neglected project residing in my Drawer of Shame, I plan to resurrect a couple more over the coming weeks.

Plague Knight

Today I finished the second Knight from the Renegade box I got for my birthday a few months back.  As I painted the first knight as a filthy loyalist, I decided to give my Chaos army some love.  While I’ve yet to give this war machine a specific name, I think Plague Knight fits for now.

I’ll be unleashing him in a 3,000 pointer on Monday, hope he makes the Grandfather proud!
