Boxed into a corner…
So I painted all my original CSM in the color and markings of the Purge. However, I now remember that a) I hate playing the type of list that everyone else plays (ie. Nurgle) and b) the green is sort of pidgeon holing me. So I am looking at changing the chapter of my CSM forces. I won’t be reprinting what I have thus far painted ( a sorcerer, 7 marines w/ 4 heavy weapons, and 7 talons). I can always run these as mercenaries. I will always keep painting the cult troops and unique guys as he color of their god/ chapter or legion. That said, I am leaning towards undivided.
My options as I see them-
Night lords. Awesome models, like the paint scheme. Undivided. Problem is, that when every model requires a conversion kit it can bog you down. Plus the blue paint scheme is meh.
Word bearers. They are Rudy undivided and the legion worships all of the gods, so it works wonders for me. Sort of a bland color scheme though, and tends to lean towards dark apostles of which I have no intent to run.
Make my own legion/war band with word bearer-esque ethos towards the gods and cool night lords helmets on some of the models (chosen perhaps?). Was thinking brighter red than word bearers but that is suggestive of khorne. Could run dark red with bright red lightning bolts or a half and half color scheme, not sure.
So these are how I am looking at for the future of my CSM forces.
