Painting time has been very scarce for the last week so I'm back with another post about the line art drawings of Chaos Renegades that are include in the Traitor legions army lists found in the back of RoC Slaves to Darkness.
Last time we looked at a few of these drawings that had corresponding figures this time I would like to look at a few of the ones that don't...and few oddities that I have noticed.
One troop type that is included in these armies lists for which there are no corresponding miniatures are those showing Chaos Tech Marines. As we all know these are essential troop types to support your heavy weapons and dreadnoughts etc...and yet no Chaos Tech Marine figures were ever produced during the RT era. Lets look at what the art shows us...
This is all three of the Tech Marines shown in Slaves...the first two are very similiar to existing Renegade models...and the third appears to have the head of one of the classic Copplestone Chaos warriors from the Fantasy range...specifically this guy:
Like the last tech marine shown there are several more pieces of line art that depict marines that have helmets inspired by fantasy chaos warriors....and in particular the Copplestone CWs seem to be favored for this work. Here are a few more with their corresponding figures...again great inspiration for conversion if one was so inspired...
The Fantasy heads work surprisingly well on the Power armored bodies don't you think?
The last line drawings i would like to highlight are those that represent Chaos Spawn and Possessed marines....these two troop types open up a whole realm of conversion possibilities...really the sky is the limit with these mind bending drawings...
Now we just need to convince some insanely talented sculptor to make these excellent figures for us all to enjoy **cough** Diego **cough**
thats all for now...I'll hopefully be back with another painted Renegade soon.
