Now THATS old school. However, its cool school, and I wanna see how this turns out.

"I.. I know my time has come" Tethesis said with a gasp, a torrent of blood flowing from his lips.
"No! Hang on brother!!" Altharius could feel the warmth slip away from his dear sibling's hands

Tethesis's reached out his bloodied arm to Altharius's face.
"I..I have one final request"
Altharius leaned close to listen, tears welling in his once bright eyes.
"make sure th..they put my soulstone in a tank... it'll be... real fethin' cool"
"Yes, you're gonna be the most fethin' cool tank!!" burning hot tears streaked down Altharius's face, as he held his brother's soul in his grasp.

Wow, this will be insanely cool if you can do it. You should paint them all in tiny squares of colour, not blended together, to simulate bad graphics.

For the flying rippers you need to either convert them into the lost souls (the flaming,flying skulls) or those god forsaken scary as hell flying demon babies.

By the emperor's grace that's AWESOME!

I played the first DooM when it was released in 94... I was 6 years old.

I still LOVE the DooM series so this made me kinda need to change pants... almost

Great job on the Mastermind so far, he is a tad small though

BTW... you MUST have the Cacodeamons as well as the Mancubus (I'd say that they should be the fexes)!

@Muller: Yes, I also have a love that runs deep for DOOM, and if you are fan enough and havent done so yet, read the first 2 DOOM novels if you can get your hands on them, they are a little hard to find. Just stop at the second even though there are 2 more, it gets very sidetracked from what DOOM is about.

I think its funny you say that about the Spidermind, I thought he was too big! I mean he is twice the size of space taken up by a Hive Tyrant! ANd yes the Cacodemons, aka pumpkins are strangler/talon fexes, were as mancubus aka fatboys are dakkafexes...

Oh yes I've read them, my love with DooM goes very deep...

Have you faced Keen in DooM II ?

he needs to be in the army as well... as a commander or something ;P

BTW, where's my cyberdeamon? (I vote for him as one of the gigantic nids from FW)

HAHAHAH, yes I took all the nicknames, so once again, Cyberdemon=steamdemon, Im thinking uberfex. If you honestly go back and look at what he is like, he is only roughly 25 feet tall, about the same size as the spidermind in height, so gargantuan creatures are out of the question, although since originally I was going to base this on the chaos demons army, a soulgrinder conversion was going to be the steam demon, but this just fit so much better.

Im going competitive, but in no way scrificing fluff, so the uberfex aka cyberdemon will have all the boosted d upgrades, chitin, ext car, bonded exo, plus crushing claws/strangler(missle launcher, though im considering making it a venom cannon instead, though I think it makes more sense for it to be missle with the kaboom and all), and so he will be an absolute death machine, as he should be.

Note: got sidetracked on the steamdemon sculpt, decided to get the ripper/lost souls done and decided to convert ripperheads into them so GW doesnt complain and lets be honest, the original lost souls look in no way human so I think they look great actually. anyways, pics on them tomorow and maybe a completed steamdemon.

Ive decided to stick with the ripper heads, Ive shortened the overall maw of the heads, to make them more like demonic/human, adding horns and fire to the back now. Also started construction on ol Cybie.

@Muller: Nemesis indeed.... 'O-o; haha, Steamdemon was what they called them in the books, with their whole rediculous naming procecees.
