Showcase: Assassinorum: Execution Force Chaos Space Marines

Published 2022-08-05

The Crimson Slaughter is a Renegade warband of Chaos Space Marines dedicated to Chaos Undivided. Originally they were known as the Crimson Sabres, a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter that may have belonged to the mysterious 13th Founding, also known as the "Dark Founding," which occurred sometime between the 35th and 36th Millennia.

Miniature Review

Sticking with the clutches of Chaos the three Space Marines are next. These are some pretty ancient and boring sculpts compared to the releases of today, so I don't plan to spend much time on them. The main thing is that they need to match the much cooler sorcerer lord that I plan to paint next!

I mixed sand with glue and applied it to the base. I then drybrushed it with Dawnstone, then Administratum Grey. I then painted the outer base with Rhinox Hide, then added a layer of Mournfang Brown. Finally, I applied some grass tufts and some Leaf Litter by Green Stuff World.


There wasn't much exciting about painting these guys, I did a little highlighting on the armour after doing the same when painting Lost Patrol and I think I'm slowly improving. I've not added anything to their shoulder pads for now as I'm not 100% sure what to use and don't want to have to replace them down the line if I decide to collect and paint a matching army of Chaos Space Marines.
