This little cutie took a bit longer than I thought to finish, but he got there in the end.

Because Havocs with Autocannons are the go-to choice for Chaos Space Marines, that’s all I’ve been using (except when I needed Lascannons against the Necron chariot, woop!). So I need 4 Autocannons to equip my guys. So far I’ve been proxying the black and purple Chaos Marines I got off ebay (now painted in the colors of the Flaming Spears!), or using my fully painted Chosen, but I’ve been wanting to scratchbuild an autocannon for a while now.
When I got started I had two choices:
- build 4 (or 8) autocannons, which would get boring after the 2nd to be honest, or
- build 1 really nice autocannon and try casting it in resin
So I went with option 2 – got started during the first group painting sesh with one of the Hammertime 40K guys:
Here’s the first 6 Cultists I painted from a group of converted Traitor Guard I got off ebay.
I got 26 of these guys (Imperial Guard converted into Traitor Guard) so that’ll bring me to 66 Cultists once they’re all done! Not many more required to max out two units of Cultists (35 per unit, I think).
Here’s a group of Plague Marines I converted from the 40K Dark Vengeance starter box:
Recently painted up the 20 Chaos Marines in my army’s colors – completely skipping the pile of models waiting to be done! I decided to take pictures of them step-by-step. Unfortunately I was so enthusiastic about painting them up finally that I completely skipped taking off the mold lines and drilling out the barrels, but since these guys are rank-and-file types I decided ‘what the hell’ and just carried on. So here’s what I ended up with:
So, first real post finally: Here’s a squad of 40K Dark Vengeance starter set Terminators I converted to be Chaos Space Marine Nurgle Terminators. I didn’t change the weapons, just added the bloated bellies, horns, blisters and such, and used a razor saw to cut the arms off of some of the figures just to make them easier to pack away when needed.
The finished product:
