The Path of Chaos by ning The Path of Chaos by ning
An old sketch I happened upon...

We know a Chaos Marine when we see one, but there was a process that changed their forms. What did they look like right after the 'fall' as they slipped into chaos?

The Aquila (eagle) was the Imperium's symbol from the beginning of the Crusade, I believe. It was a thundercloud with twin lightning-bolts before that, during the Unification Wars on Terra.
Anyway, though, one of the first things a traitor would do is remove the coat-of-arms of his former masters.

Interesting, although I think, technically, the eagle was not the symbol of the Imperium until after the Battle of Terra. That said, this is based on a very old (original) understanding of Warhammer 40,000, and it seems to have been retconned by a lot of company illustrators and some lack of attention to detail on the part of art directors... or maybe I am way off base.

(I know there isn't such a thing. I think it was meant to be a joke when I originally commented)
Good work though.

Did they change their armor manually or did the Warp alter it for them?

the head geometry is all wrong. very very wrong.
On the plus side your painting skills are quite good and you have some pretty nice tricks to shape out the shapes.
