Many of those that know me here do not know about my other passion, Chaos! I've decided to bring a thread over here that I've started on warseer and my blog as well; Mariner's Blight.

They are a maritime inspired Lovecraftian Chaos Marine Army combining inspiration from The Shadow over Innsmouth as well as the Cthulhu mythos with 1800's style diving suits and nautical details.

-----------------------------------------

Mariners Blight Daemon Prince K'thul-hu!

K'thul-hu started out as a finecast Nurgle Deamon Prince with Vampire Counts Zombie Dragon Wings added, thigh areas were re-sculpted to look like MKII & III armor, a custom shoulder pad with a Blight logo sculpted on it. The head came from*Reaper Miniatures Eldritch Demon*(read "Cthulhu") which for obvious reasons was a perfect fit

I added a tail from the WFB Manticore Model for that extra Daemon like element and a 3-eyed Kraken icon on the shin guard similar to the standard that is on the Terminators. Finally, like with the rest of the army, the base is from*Secret Weapon Miniatures.

I painted the armor using the Tutorial HERE

Here is one of the centerpieces for my Mariners Blight Army, a Contemptor Dreadnought modified to look like an oversized deep diver. I drew inspiration not only from actual 1800's diver outfits, but also from Big Daddy.

I took the Forge World Dread and added some subtle Chaos trim with Greenstuff and Styrene rivets. I used a Chaos vehicle spotlight (Which fit perfectly) as the diver helmet. And then I sculpted the tentacles from greenstuff as seen in this post.

The base is from Secret Weapon Miniatures and the boat I bought from Billing Boats USA.

Mariners Blight Raptors.

They are mostly based on MK3 Armour, w/regular Chaos CC arms and some MK2 Armour pieces. The Biohazard heads and Iron Pattern Jump Packs are from Maxmini as are the Tesla Cannons which I'm using as more retro proxies for Plasma Guns.

The Commander is using a Zombie Head from Maxmini for that rotten swampy look. I also decided that his lighting claws should be mutations rather than manufactured weapons. Just "felt" right with the whole Lovecraftian mutation thing I have going on.

My Blight Lord is essentially Abbaddon. Same stats, rules etc. But I wanted a unique look to fit the blight theme. In The Shadow over Innsmouth it was Obed Marsh who brought Dagon to Innsmouth, so it's only fitting that I honor his name by dubbing my lord Obeddon Marsh.

The build started as Lord Zhufor from Forgeworld with a few drastic changes. I shaved off all the World Eater iconography, sculpted a new Dagon symbol on the left shoulder pad, added the anchor,* gave him a tentacle, spliced Zhufor's head with a more blight appropriate one and gave him a nasty aquatic looking Daemon Sword made from a modified Tyranid bonesword. The base is a modified Secret Weapon Miniatures one with some appropriate nautical embellishments.

Deep Diver Terminators

These guys are competing to be one of my favorite units from the whole army.
I mixed up loyalist and Traitor Terminator armor and used all the diver helmet heads from BioHazard head sprues Morbäck designed*to achieve a unique look. I actually shaved away a lot of the smaller chaos detail on each figure for a smoother armor look, especially on the shoulder pads.*This Particular unit has Mark of Nurgle, so I added that in there in a Cephlopod like fashion
The addition of some aquatic like mutations completes the Innsmouth Look on these fellas.

I used a tutorial from Massive Voodoo on making real miniatures lens for all the optics and the squid icon.

This tutorial goes into detail about how I painted them.*WIP's can be found HERE

Mariners Blight Rhinos.

These were highly converted MKII Rhino kits. I basically redetailed the whole kit overtop of the old chassis.

Hey Guys, thanks again for all the support!

A MKII Vindicator. Just like the Rhinos & The Predator, I basically redetailed the whole kit overtop of the old chassis. I used Chaos vehicle bits and Baneblade bits to add a new level of detail to the old kit. I also used Kromlech Dozer Blades for something unique

Pre-heresy style Jetbikers.

These guys use Kromlech's Iron Shark Bike kit with some minor modifications (Tow Hooks). The riders were made just like my other blight infantry with the exception of the legs. They were regular Marine biker legs that I modified to look more like MKII Armour.


The bases I made from a combination of Secret Weapon Miniatures Bone Fields bases and regular calvary bases. I imbedded the SWM bases at both ends then filled the middle with pumice paste and assorted earthly remains.

The painting is stunning as always, perhaps even more so than usual with all the weathering you have done, but the thought and effort that has gone into creating such a coherent and heavily-converted army is equally amazing.

Would absolutely love to see this in person across a tabletop! *tips hat*

How much more work do you plan to do on this army, or will it be a perpetual project?

Thanks Guys for the compliments, here's some Mariners Blight Marines Finished.

They were made from a combination of MK2 & MK3 Armour with Morback's BioHazard Helmets.
I literally cut legs off from MK2 Armour and swapped with MK3 Armour to create a more chaotic appearnce. Some Maxmini mutation bits were mixed in with possessed bits to achieve an aquatic mutation effect on the Close Combat Marines.

I painted the armor using the Tutorial I have posted HERE

Unpainted pics of the Champion can be seen HERE

OK those are officially awesome, as a gamer and a diver I am doubly jealous.

Particularly love the Deep Sea Terminators.

Sir I salute you.

Thanks Skyboard Surfer!

Here's my possessed unit, like the rest of Mariners Blight are a combination of MK 2 & MK 3 Armour as well as a mix of old and new possessed / mutation bits. I only used claws/arms that had the nautical feel. Crab Claws, tentacles, and the like.

Thanks again everyone for all the support. I've been laying low for a few months but now that the summer is coming to a close and I've been feeling some more inspiration lately to finish up some lingering projects on the table.


Mariners Blight Forgefiend Zoth-Ommog

As soon as the GW Mutalith Vortex Beast kit came out I knew I needed to do something with that tentacle mouth piece. It just fit in so perfectly with my Lovecraftian theme for this army.

I made this beast by splicing together as many tentacle pieces I can find to the body of a Forgefiend and slapping that tentacled maw on the front of it. I added some Cryx legs in the back for a bit of a mechanical crab appearance. The base is from Secret Weapon Miniatures.

Nice to see you back in the saddle Eye!

Another brilliant creation, I would love to see that on the tabletop. Fits your theme beautifully.
