Here’s the first model of a batch of Chaos Space Marines I was called to do on a hurry for a big apocalypse event.
This model is slightly converted (weapon swap). Still, it was only the first time I painted the Hellbrute model from the new 40k starter box and I have to echo many of the voices who say that the ‘Eavy Metal paintjob didn’t do the model many favours.
I ended up really liking this model. You get to do lots of armour, some slightly organic looking armour plates, a lot of skin and flesh and so on. Very varied model with lots of interesting surfaces.
So, I hope you like what I made of the model and stay tuned for bigger and nastier Khorne war machines soon!
Hey, it's CMDante! Hullo, thanks for dropping by and commenting! Didn't do the conversion myself, I'm just the painting monkey, but I certainly will pass on the praise.
Personally, I like the weapon swap as well. I think that it makes the model look more balanced in the way of armour-flesh-ratio.
Looks great, looking forward to more Khorne war machines…
Damn fine conversion there. Nothing screams Khorne like the overkill of a huge plasma cannon 😉
Thanks, guys! Oh yes, especially a plasmacannon with a maw and huge teeth in the front. 😀
I like the plasma cannon conversion. I'd probably trim it down a touch, it looks a bit too long and unbalanced. In fact I might make my own version for my black legion 🙂
Thanks for the inspiration.
The conversion looks great, but I would have used the Forgefiends ectoplasma cannon head instead of one of the arms since it's fairly shorter and results in the arm size remaining about the same as before.

The weapon swap really makes the gun look a million times better – great job.
