Well ive decided to stop making new threads for everything and have a single log for all my epic projects.

The kreig and necrons are on hold as i return to the chaos force I started, and failed to finish in, ToEG09. Im aiming to expand the project into all ares of chaos, and loosely plan to cover the following:

Black legion –  early WIP
Khone/WE – mid WIP
Nurgle – early WIP
Tzeen – very early WIP
Slaanesh – early WIP
Chaos squats – separate log here viewtopic.php?f=7&t=18824
Forge of Souls/daemon world – early WIP
Cultists – not started
Dark Mech – not start
and possibly iron warriors and a chaos titan legion...  it should be a fun year if i get the time.

Had some unexpected free time this weekend, so i made a start on a small Forge of Souls army ive been thinking about for a while now. This is to represent a defense force raised in order to repel a take-over bid from one of the major chaos factions, or a genera daemon world army with a manufacturing/forge theme. Currently thinking of using the LaTD list with proxies, something along the lines of:

enslaved souls/semi-sentient nightmare creatures = cultists/mutants
blind, mutating forge daemons = big mutants
dragon ogre things = traitor rough riders
soul grinders = defilers
spirit construct WEs = slaanesh knights
Master of the forge = greater daemon or possibly LoB
Breath of the forge = cannon or chaos alter with a forge bellows theme

more ideas very welcome.

Unfortunately ive misplaced my bag-o-epic bases, but a rummage through various boxes got me enough to make a start:

Some enslaved souls:


Started work on a spirit construct, these will have a core of twisted strings of wired up zombies (souls) contained within rough pieces of armor (bits of tank, salvaged titan carapace etc).


nightmare creatures - these dont photograph well, ive been experimenting with using chameleonic nano flakes suspended in 'ard coat on them. the result is a subtle petrol film sheen as your view changes.

Truly inspirational stuff, as always. The old chaos models are lots of fun, aren't they?

Thousand Sons look aces!

But I am gob-smacked by your Forge of Souls army. My God man they are great.

Looking very cool already. I'm really looking forward to seeing this army progressing.

Thanks for the comments. Great thousand sons BL, i was thinking the head piece on mine looked to big but ts perfect on the newer CSMs you used.

I scribbled a few concepts for breath of the forge today (hell cannon or alter proxy) which boil down to this. It would be carried into battle by a horde of souls and have nightmare creatures crawling on it/operating it with chains.

Had the afternoon off so decided to make a start on the daemonic bellows, which due to their size are now probably altars. A lot of work still needed:

How about mounting the "breath" on wheels and the slaves/souls in front of it dragging it across the battlefield?

Ooh ooh ooh!  :O    

Sorry, that was me having a geek-gasm  :laugh:  :grin:

Loving all of this thus far.  Your Thousand Sons are exactly how I intend to do mine.

Love the Khornate Centaurs, too  :smile:

Can't wait to see the count-as Slaanesh Engines, I like where that's going so far.

By the way, that's an impressive amount of EW zombies; I expect Tom would thank you for keeping him in beer, if he hadn't given it up for lent, ha!  :p
