Way back in 2000 when I was getting back into 40K, Chaos Marines were one of the things I was building. This was the codex back then in 3rd edition. CSM figures were either all metal or metal/plastic combo kits. Regular guys came in blisters. In this ancient time I planned out my Chaos Marines and came up with the basic idea for the Sons of Taurus - renegades from the Minotaurs chapter who turned after the Badab War. I made lists, collected figures, named characters and worked on paint schemes.
But it didn't click. The schemes I was working on kept looking too much like something else, too Night Lords, too X, too Y. So I shelved the idea and went on to other armies. The itch resurfaced every now and then, but other projects kept winning out.
No longer! Planning out a Khorne Daemonkin army, I asked myself that if I was really going to make another full Chaos Marine army (in addition to the Word Bearers, Endless Ones and Death Guard), why not finally do the Sons of Taurus instead? I decided I could live with the copper-based paint scheme from a few years ago and started organizing parts, ordering shoulder pads and other parts, did a test model and started to build things.
So they're finally coming, and the name of this blog will finally make some sense. Much more to come!
