Epic: Chaos Marines - Juggernauts (WIP)

Progress has been slower than I'd have liked over the last week or so but I wanted to get something on the blog about the work I've been doing as I've not been idle (just frustrated).

I've been working on the first units for my Chaos Epic W40K army. I posted earlier about the Tanks I'd painted, and this post is about the units of Khorne Juggernauts I've been working on.

I've been trying a new "technique" (for want of a better word) of painting these models whilst still on the sprue. Due to their small size (and the Marines/Beastmen/Squats that will follow are even smaller) they're very tricky to hold. I know from past experience when I first got hold of Epic-scale models that basing them first and painting afterwards is a royal pain in the sphincter so I wanted to try something different.

So I spray-painted the whole sprue black and the rest is basically dry-brushed:

As you will no doubt notice, the bases are unfinished (they are 2p coins with the models super-glued on and then PVAd and dipped in sand) and require painting. There are also numerous bits that need touching up where the models joined the sprues, and the banners need some kind of a detail added. Probably a Khorne logo. Still deciding on that one.

I'm not going to go overboard on the paintjob for this army - I'm happy with "rough-and-ready" tabletop standard for the rank-and file. Bigger models might get a bit more attention.
