Apparently when these guys were designed, the concept was that after the Horus Heresy, "Treacher Legions" were cast out into the Eye of Terror and diedout there. These guys are supposed to be mutated Chaos warriors imitating the look of Space Marines.
Before printing of Realms of Chaos it was changed to CSMs being immortal, so later editions CSMs had ordinary marine armour.

Dude, this simply bad-ass. It's awesome that the old Chaos Space Marines aren't forgotten, and that they still are drawn. They look a lot better than most modern Chaos Space Marines, save modern Terminator Lords or the 4th ed Raptors. But the original renegades? Nothin' touches them.

I'm sad that I missed out on these guys. As a person starting the tabletop hobby, it'd be awesome if Games Workshop released a line of classics and started making old models like this again.

Wizards of the Cost has done something similar with old D&D and AD&D. Probably due to the old school revival movement. Sadly 1st edition stuff has new dungeonpunk illustrations instead of originals :/ .

Maybe one day the Oldhammer movement will get big enough...

Yeah, I loved the design of the Renegades in 1st/2nd Ed.
This is a really good rendition, would love to see your take on more of the classic designs.

At least they were something else than Loyalists with Spikes(TM) then... The minis were kind of ass imho. But they ideas were good.

To be honest i find myself liking the old models that have new paintjobs way better than the newer stuff. I mean sure the new stuff is awesome but sometimes its good to know what they came from.
