Just Finished Painting: Chaos Beastmen

After a hobby break for several months due to quitting my old job, starting a new one, my move from Munich to Bonn and the resulting travelling between those cities, I started to paint again some weeks ago. I decided to start with some open projects I am planning for many years now. Starting with a bunch of classical Warhammer Fantasy 4th Edition plastic Chaos Beastmen that I converted for my Warhammer 40.000 Chaos army.

I converted some Warhammer Fantasy 4th Edition Chaos Beastmen.

As I'm a big fan of those classical plastics which date back to the time when I started playing Warhammer, the use of those miniatures is an obvious choice. I cut away the helbards in their right hands and replaced them with left-over Chainswords and Bolt Pistols from my Chaos Space Marine and Khorne Berserker sprues. After that, I painted the miniatures using my inking/washing/shading painting method.

Replacing their helbards with 40K weapons.

I plan to use them either as Chaos Space Marines with close combat gear, as Chaos Cultists or simply as Chaos Beastmen. Additionally I'm thinking about doing ten more including a Champion and two Beastmen with special weapons like Plasma Guns or Flamers.
