Hobby: Chaos Terminator Complete (Pics)

Disciples of Twilight EmblemSeems like I was working on this model forever. Once I had decided my paint scheme I wanted to see it on a model and began painting this Chaos Terminator. Once I had things base coated I knew I liked the scheme and left him that way for a while as I worked on models that ‘needed’ to get done. I finally got back around to him and I’m glad he’s finally done.

The shots are a bit dark. I’m still working out lighting for the light box I made. Really I just need an area I can leave it set up so I’m not dragging stuff around each time.


Overall I’m really happy with how he came out. This model took a while too because really he was my test model for everything. The power weapon took me three tries to get it to where I was happy with it. The warband logo took me a few tries as well. Painting a crescent moon was a bit tricky to get the shape right. The half paint scheme wasn’t too bad but I tried various methods of shading on the greyish blue before I was happy with that. Now I have it figured out the next ones should go a lot quicker.



I began playing Warhammer 40K in 2006, and have been an avid player and hobbyist since then. I have also been blogging about 40K for almost as long as I've been playing it, having started Creative Twilight in 2009.

    I like it man, great job!

    • Thanks.

      Just checked out your blog and man you have some amazingly painted stuff.

  • Looks good!  I’m liking the halved color scheme, and purple power weapons are cool.

    • I’m really happy with the halved scheme too. It takes more time to do but it’s a reason I choose it. I wanted to push myself more with painting.

      That power weapon, ug. Like I said, that’s the 3rd version of it. I wanted to do something different than on my loyalists but it took some screwing around to get there. Now that I have the method down the next ones will go quicker and look better.

    That Looks awesome! I must say when I first saw the paint scheme that you were going with, I wasn’t so sure, but this looks fantastic! The only problem I see is a gap in between the body and the shoulder of the combi-melta arm. Probably due to a magnet I’m guessing?

    • Yeah, it’s magnetized and I guess I didn’t notice when I attached the arms after I sealed everything. It does sit on there better than that. Ooops.

      Thanks. Halved schemes, in my opinion, either look awesome or they look terrible. For the longest time I thought they looked bad and wanted to see if I could pull one off that looked good.

  • Ooo, niiice

    • Thank you sir!

    Looks like a nice, solid paintjob  there. The details like the crescent moon and the purple on the power weapon are nice touches.

    Very nice.

    • I appreciate it. After two years I finally got a painting compliment from Ron ;)
