Diablo Jon's - Diablo Crusade 40K Project (more plague marines )
« on: February 03, 2016, 07:51:26 PM »
Hi Guys,
           long term lurker who has finally joined up really impressed by the great stuff people post up and thought I'd add my own humble efforts by way of an introduction.

 I took stock of all my half done projects last Christmas/new year (don't we all :) ) and realised I had a lot half finished things knocking about the man cave. this realization has been coupled with a re-igniting of my interest in the 40k background so I decide to try and finish up a few 40K armies I've had knocking about. Then I decided to go a bit further and set up a blog and make an attempt to flesh out the background for the armies as I painted them. In the end I've ended up with a project I've called the Diablo Crusade.

Thought I'd run this thread alongside my blog. First up some random musings on what I'm trying to achieve for those interested

https://diablocrusade.wordpress.com/2016/01/15/2/

then a bit of back ground fluff for the Diablo Crusade

https://diablocrusade.wordpress.com/2016/01/15/the-diablos-crusade-a-history/

My first army that is coming to completion is the 888th Khorne's Own Traitor Guard

First some back ground fluff and an army list for those interested in such things

https://diablocrusade.wordpress.com/2016/01/27/888th-division-khornes-own/

https://diablocrusade.wordpress.com/2016/01/31/888th-khornes-own-traitor-guard-1000-point-army/

Right that's all the wordy crap out the way so on to a few pictures

Traitor tank (made out of a 1/48 soviet KV-2 tank)


Traitor squads (converted from Ramshackle games Iron Brotherhood miniatures)






Traitor fast attack in APC (Ramshackle games Rehbok APC)


and some daemon support in the form of some ebay rescued Bloodletters



Lots more pictures and info on my Blog for those interested https://diablocrusade.wordpress.com/

Cheers Jon

Thanks guys  :)

erm yes there may be a touch of Blood Pact in there.................but I guess that's what you get for being the poster boys for non-Marine Chaos in the universe.  Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and all that :D

Cool, it all looks the part.  Looks like some of the old Wargames Factory troopers would fit in with your aesthetic.

Yeah I always quite liked the Wargames Factory shock troops I was hoping to use them as a "not Death Korps of Krieg" army (with some weapon swaps). Problem is those miniatures have become quite hard to get hold of now since Wargames Factory got in to bed with Warlord Games. Hopefully Warlord will re-release them at some stage.
