Behold, the Storm of Chogoris box! A deadly composition of several Incursors, two ATV Invader, a Primaris Chaplain on a bike, and the famed Kor’sarro Khan himself. Adhering to the chapter’s pre-defined miniature paint scheme, the project is painted to our level of Ornate in its entirety, with every base crafted to the same standard to provide a more immersive battlefield experience amidst the ruins of a devastated city. No modifications or conversions were made during the assembly of the miniatures.
The scheme is one of true Grimdark, with battle damage and weathering lending to the gritty realism of the battlefield. Our primary focus was on bringing out the reflective nature of the white armor, utilizing a blend of blues and greens to add depth to the surfaces. The red, more of a dark burgundy, was darkened further from the box art to achieve a more ominous and worn-down aesthetic.
To achieve this level of quality, our team took great care in each step of the process. From the initial priming to the final highlights, every stroke of the brush was meticulously executed to ensure a consistent and cohesive finish. The resulting Storm of Chogoris box is not only a formidable force on the tabletop, but a true work of art that represents the pride and dedication of the chapter.

Chogoris Storm as a starter for my new army
I’ve been considering starting a White Scars army for a while now and the time has finally come to dive into this adventure with the release of their starter box. I love the aesthetics of this Chapter and would like to follow that aesthetic line with some adaptations you guys deem necessary.
In particular, I want my miniatures to be loaded with battle damage, wear and tear, and effects of the passage of time. I would like my White Scars to look like veteran warriors who have been fighting for decades, winning battles and fighting for the survival of humanity in a hostile and dangerous universe.

With a well-established scheme, we didn’t have much creative freedom, so we focused on giving a personalized and distinctive touch to the army by changing the usual intense red for a more desaturated garnet. We also introduced a variety of tones in the shadows of the white to enrich the overall look of the miniatures.
For the bases of the miniatures, we recreated a city in ruins using cork and painted it with a special asphalt effect paint. We also added typical road lines and some bushes growing between the cracks to give more realism and variety.
Overall, we’re very happy with how the army turned out. It has a distinct and personalized look that sets it apart from others while still fitting within the established scheme of the chapter. The ruined city bases also add a lot of character to the army and help to tell a story about the battles they’ve fought.

The miniatures have arrived in perfect condition and I am very happy with the final result. The change in the color scheme and the custom bases have given a distinctive and unique touch to my army. We will definitely have to make the whole army.
