40K - Forces of CHAOS

I've decided to put together a force of assorted Chaos stuff - with a slight bent towards Slaanesh! I was mostly thinking a Daemon army, but there will be a few Chaos Space Marine elements - and a couple of Knights - mostly because I happen to have them...

DAEMONS

Slaanesh



Daemons of Slaanesh



These are old metal Keeper of Secrets and Fiend miniatures - as the Keeper of Secrets is tiny compared to the current model, I thought I'd use this one as a Daemon Prince of Slaanesh!



The FIRST unit of Daemonettes.

I have two more to assemble and paint at some point. In the LONG term, I think it would be fun to have SWARMS of these - like, three units of thirty of them!

I also have Seekers (ten of them!), and more Fiends (three of the new plastic ones), and an Infernal Enrapturess, and an Exalted Seeker Chariot to assemble and/or finish painting... At SOME point I might also add one of the new Keeper of Secrets and a few other characters (Masque and Herald)

Khorne



Daemons of Khorne!



Karanak, the Hound of Vengeance! Headquarters for a small detachment of Khorne Daemons.



Bloodletters of Khorne. Troops. At some point I might pick up two more such units - just so they can be fielded as a full "Battalion" detachment.



Flesh Hounds - Fast Attack

I also have a unit of Bloodcrushers to finish painting...


CHAOS SPACE MARINES

The Chaos Space Marines will largely be Emperor's Children - servants of Slaanesh - but I will also have a small detachment of Death Guard.

Emperor's Children



Only a few cultists, so far... I do have 15 more of these to finish painting... plus a bunch of others from Blackstone Fortress that could be fielded as Cultists...

I also have a Sorcerer, Terminators, regular Chaos Space Marines, and some Noise Marines to finish up for this force!

 

I do also have these two Rogue Psykers from the Blackstone Fortress game that could be added to the Emperor's Children forces...


Death Guard 



Plague Marines.

Never intended to ever do any Nurgle stuff... but I found a lot of these and they were just way too cheap to pass up!? I have another 16 of them to finish up. I might try and track down a character to lead them, at some point..


CHAOS KNIGHTS - QUESTOR TRAITORIS




A Traitor/Renegade Cerastus Knight-Acheron from Forge World.

More pics and details can be found here:

Renegade Knight Acheron (and Other Chaos Goodies!)

I do have a second Knight that will be painted as a Renegade Knight Despoiler. At some point I wouldn't mind picking up a third (probably a Knight Desecrator/Rampager.


CHAOS ARMY!

Put it all together and...



The Complete Forces of Chaos... so far...

Looks a lot like Chaos Soup...

So far, I guess that could be fielded (in Warhammer 40000: Apocalypse, the only 40K mass battle I really care about at the moment) as...

Chaos Battalion Detachment
HQ - Daemon Prince of Chaos - 9PL
Troops - Cultists with Heavy Stubber (10) - 3PL
Troops - Bloodletters (10) - 4PL
Troops - Daemonettes (10) - 4PL

Chaos Vanguard Detachment
HQ - Karanak - 4PL
Elite - Rogue Psyker - 3PL
Elite - Rogue Psyker - 3PL
Elite - Plague Marines (5) - 4PL
Fast Attack - Flesh Hounds (5) - 3PL

Chaos Knight Auxiliary Super Heavy Detachment
Lord of War - Renegade Knight Acheron - 26PL

63 Power Level in total.


THE PLAN

I still have a lot to complete. When everything I have is all assembled and painted, I should have (Organized for Warhammer 40000: Apocalypse):

Emperor's Children Battalion Detachment
HQ - Sorcerer - 3PL
Troops - Cultists with Heavy Stubber (10) - 3PL
Troops - Cultists (10) - 2PL
Troops - Cultists (10) - 2PL

Death Guard Vanguard Detachment
HQ - ?
Elite - Plague Marines (5) - 4PL
Elite - Plague Marines (5) - 4PL
Elite - Plague Marines (10) - 7PL
(in regular 40K these would be three units of seven... but for some reason in Apocalypse they're only foldable in units of 5/10/15/20...?)

Khorne Daemon Patrol Detachment
HQ - Karanak - 4PL
Troops - Bloodletters (10) - 4PL
Fast Attack - Flesh Hounds (5) - 3PL
Elites - Blood Crushers (3) - 6PL

Elite - Fiend of Slaanesh - 3PL
Elite - Fiend of Slaanesh - 3PL

Chaos Knight Auxiliary Super Heavy Detachment
Lord of War - Renegade Knight Acheron - 26PL

Chaos Knight Auxiliary Super Heavy Detachment
Lord of War - Knight Despoiler (with Stormspear Rocket Pod) - 25PL

Black Legion Battalion Detachment (From Blackstone Fortress) 
HQ - Obsidius Mallex - 4PL
Troops - Traitor Guardsmen (7) - 2PL
Troops - Traitor Guardsmen (7) - 2PL
Troops - Cultists of the Abyss (8) - 2PL
Troops - Cultists of the Abyss (8) - 2PL
Elite - Rogue Psyker - 3PL
Elite - Rogue Psyker - 3PL
Elite - Negavolt Cultists (4) - 2PL
Elite - Chaos Beastmen (4) - 1PL

200 Power Level in total... a pretty decent size for an Apocalypse army (though a little light on the Heavy Hitters!)... Or a smaller one with a few options... Ideally, at SOME point (probably NOT this year) I'd like to add a few things to these forces.  One of the new Keeper of Secrets models, for one! A third Chaos knight might be nice - just to make a full Super Heavy Detachment of three. I do HAVE A third knight I COULD paint up as a Chaos Knight... but I had plans for her... and if I got a third knight for this force, I think I'd rather get a Knight Desecrator or Rampager. Also, I love the idea of having SWARMS of Daemonettes - like, three units of thirty of them! Also, another two units of Bloodletters might be fun - just to upgrade the Khorne patrol into a "battalion" detachment... And maybe some Nurgle character to lead the Deathguard detachment.


Battlefleet Gothic

I picked up a few Chaos Vessels for the old Battlefleet Gothic game - that could ferry around the above forces from world to world...



Emperor's Children Fleet.



Nurgle Daemon Ship for the Death Guard detachment.
