Playing with Chaos Marines

An infestation of Nurglings here at Hungry Ghosts Headquarters has prevented much Chaos Squats progress this month. So here are some World Eaters conversions of 40K 2nd Edition era Chaos Space Marines that I made recently.

Khorne Berzerker Champion

The Shelf of World Eaters


  1. I really enjoy your blog and as such I read all of your post. The conversion and paint jobs are out of this world and it's cause of this that I add comments to your blog. Just wondering though if you read the comments or if they are in vain.

  2. I really like the Berzerker with the plastic tyranid arms, great use of that Chaos Spawn head!

  3. Woah, is that a dude with tusks growing out of his groin? :O

  4. As soon as I saw that head in the pile of bits I bought, I knew it was destined for something special. The same with the old Tyranid Bone Swords.

    Converting these minis gave me a better appreciation for the 40K 2nd edition releases. Switching from the individual variety of the Rogue Trader and WFB 3rd edition minis toward the Torso-and-Arms and All-Look-Same plastics are part of what decreased my interest in Warhammer after I left for college around the same time.

    By the late 90s, though, the quality of the minis had really improved and caught my attention again. I started again collecting the old Rogue Trader minis first, because they are the best single-piece minis for displaying on a shelf. The later minis really need to be assembled to be enjoyed, but once they are assembled they can look as interesting, or more interesting, than the Rogue Trader minis.
