Emperor's Children - The First Six

So, the children carrying plasma gun is now in paint and uniform, ready to complete the first squad of my Emperor's Children warband. Once again I decided to play with the OSL, plasma weapons would otherwice look dull and idle. White horns on the helmet will add another bind with the Daemon Prince of Slaanesh, Azazel (I think I'll change his name when the time is right).

Damn that took long time to finish, close to around one year, but I made it! Now it's time to start designing this group's dedicated Rhino transport vehicle and another band of close combat comrad squad with the chain saw swords. Hopefully it won't take another year for them to finish...

When fitting the plasma gun quy in the group I noticed that one of the old chaps jumped out annoyingly due to his "nurgly" helmet (that three eyed helmet), so I decided to fix the problem with a swift change of helmets.

To add something different I painted this guy's helmet in black instead of pink, bringing his horns out a bit and adding some contrastng vibrance to the overall look of the squad.

And here's the first group shot from the whole warband so far...


  1. Very Very nice paintjob indeed. I really like darker Slaanesh armies vs. Bright pink.

    Now I'm feeling like digging out my half finished noise marines and giving them a once over :P

  2. Love the work man! ;)
    Can't wait to see more Emperors Children from you..
    Keep up the good work! :D

  3. Thank you LuckyNo.5 and Rang112! I promise, the Rhino is going to give some sparks in your brains ;)

  4. That's a very cool colour scheme you have there, I can't wait to see more :D

  5. Thanks Sentinel Guy! The colour scheme is kind of "mimicking" Christian Byrne's Slaanesh Chaos Space Marines seen in couple of White Dwarfs, though I'm using a bit more pinkish tone in the shoulder pads helmets.

  6. Gosh, can't wait to see rhino painted like this!! .DDDD How did ya paint black armour? It has given me headache, when I tried to paint my CSM black armour...

  7. Hi Mr. Smile. Thanks for your comment. Sorry for such a late reply! I just used sharp highlights in the edges of the black armour and some very thin grays in some of the upper surfaces. Also, mind where the light comes from. At first I made couple of mistakes, such as highlighting places which shouldn't be, but after catching up the plot fixed the things.

    The next four close combat Marines are in their undercoats, just waiting for the inspiration...

  8. Again great job - very inspiring!
