Long range support doesn't fair well if your going to use it in games as chaos dreadnoughts have a good chance of frying your own troops.

Unless of course you just play for fun then go for it.

Hmm... I'll think about it.

In the meantime, I finally got my black surgeon of khorne finished. He took a while, because I wanted him to have the right look - as in, completely and utterly mad doctor, obsessed with blood and surgery. When he's not in battle, giving out combat drugs in plentiful rations, he's back at home performing the berzerker surgery on captured marines. I am really happy with his head - I got just the right look - he really looks crazy. I sought long and hard for heads, and of course I found this in my bits box. It's the head from the hanging corpse in the stonehorn (ogre) box, which I've shaved off the hair, and made a bunch of cuts in the skalp, inspired by pinhead (hellraiser) and the Sam Neill character in the film Event Horizon (very chaos-like film btw).






I also got started on the second dread. It looks pretty dull right now, compared to the other, but don't worry, it'll get suitably pimped, khorne style.

Actually I had the same idea - not so much as regarding to the game (it being wrecked - is it so easy to trash a rhino now a days? ), but more in regards to the land raider looking cooler - so I went out and bought one yesterday, which will be assembled one of the next days, with the stonehorn parts.

My local GW store has baneblade on sale, and when I saw the fantasy storm of magic skull tower and chaos sorcerer whirlwind/whatever, I got to thinking; how a bout a tower of skulls? Mwahahahaha...


Lol, it's easy for me to wreck rhinos (Kharn be praised). Yeah dude I think the land raider will be a solid choice. You are doing awesome work with chains on your stuff. Instead of having it just place on the raider static-like, maybe you could lash it down with some chains. Maybe see if the lower jaw will fit inside the assault door...

And yeah, how about a tower of skulls?!

Thanks a lot!

I'm in the process of painting the black surgeon (he just inspired me), but I'm sort of running out of ideas for the HQ; I've got a lord, a couple of champions, a dark preacher, a surgeon... Any ideas?

Perhaps I should take a closer look at my daemon prince - I'm not really satisfied with him. Also, I got my hands on a balrog - that'll make a great bloodthirster.

Any ideas for the daemon prince? I don't mind completely remaking him.

Thanks! The black surgeon seems pretty popular - I guess people just like mad doctors.

Here he is with some paint on. I deliberately stayed away from using all red, like the rest of the army, to distinguish him. I thought black was very appropiate as the opposite of the apothecarys white armour:



The highlights look a little lumpy so close up, but he looks pretty good IRL.

I've gotten a little further on dread #2. I decided that I didn't really like the positioning (leaning forward), so I ripped it apart (VERY hard to do, with the hip ball joint properly plasticglued. :S ), and repositioned it a bit. Also I got the knee bent, which is not easy on a dread either - lots of careful cutting. I put some more bits on it, and while he's far from finished, I'm beginning to like what I see.





I also reworked and repositioned the autocannon - needs an ammo belt, and more details, but getting there:




Oh, and I just picked up the DE Talos kit today - I've loved it since it came out, but didn't know what to do with it, and while I was looking at the box in the store, inspiration struck - A Daemon prince! I'm not happy with the guy with the jugger head, so I'll make a new one, based on the talos.

On a sidenote; Aaaaaaargh! I'm going nuts trying to make a daemon prince worthy of this warband. I've been converting the talos this evening, along with the land raider, but it just doesn't seem to come together. I am about to give up on the daemon prince.

*shouts to the terminator lord, with Seinfeld soup nazi voice* "No Daemon Prince for you!"

Sigh. I'll try to post a pic tomorrow of how he looks so far, so you guys can hopefully give me some ideas.

Thanks man - steal as much as you like - that's why I'm putting up pics.

Here are a few pics of the DP in progress - it just isn't coming together, so any advice on how to... well, how to make it cool is much appreciated. Legs? Wings? Is the talos just not good as a DP base? Please help.








(the arms are cutoffs from the plastic DP, with the talos underarms, and the head is from a Warmachine mini I had lying around)

Wings might do it if you want him to be hovering. Although legs will fill in the gaps at the bottom. The head is very nice!!

I reckon that will look ace with some legs. Keep him at the same height but add in some legs like he is in a "ready to leap" position. Great modelling, though.

Yeah he is missing something, he hasnt got that rrraggghh I'm going to kill you all vibe yet, being that hes a devotee to the blood god.

What does he look like with legs?

The head looks cool.

The talos looks like it has loads of potential but is going to be a hard one to hit the right spot.

Thanks a lot, guys - really appreciate the kind words.

Regarding the DP, I have no idea what legs to use for him. I'm really not feeling it right now, so I think I'll put him away until I get inspired again. Oh well - lots of other little plastic warriors to work on.

Hyenajoe: Just had a look at your work, really inspiring.

I am in the process of painting a couple of the foot troops (so I don't get caught up in painting all the characters first), and sheesh, it's taking a long time! I didn't consider at all how long it would take to properly highlight space marine armour PLUS getting all the gold trims done. Especially with shining gold, which doesn't seem to cover, unless I put on 2-3 coats. Do you know of a paint in a similar shade, that has good coverage?

How big is the Talos kit? For the legs how about making them semi bionic using the talos tendrils to add bulk to the plastic DP legs? Just a suggestion. Loving the direction youre taking Dread #2 Cant wait to see it painted. I still have a few finishing touches to add to mine before Ill get it painted.
