This WIP thread has now become my CSM blog. I know I have another blog going, but that is just for Dreads of Chaos and I thought it would look messy if I started adding CSM WIP here and there.

So far I have underway

- Havoc Squad
- Terminator with reaper cannon conversion
- Obliterator
- Raptor Squad


Enjoy!

------------------------------------------------------------------


After adding a daemon head to a heavy bolter,


I decided to start a havoc squad, and as the dread I already started was tzeetch the theme is thousand sons.


I have the thousand sons CSM heads, but as I'm loving all this converting business I came up with my own.





Any thought?

I see what you are saying, but when they are painted the blue with the trims gold, I think it willl work. I've got more parts like this that definitely look like night lords because they look like bat wings.

Try and even out the sides of the head-slabs. And make the top completely horizontal. that'd get rid of any Night Lord-esque feel =)

Replace the Night Lord helmet with a Khorne Berzerker helmet and GS the gap between the "ears". You'll end up with a much better Thousand Son-esque helmet IMO.

Failing that, I would try and see if anyone has any Thousand Son's boxes laying around. Since the heads are all seperate someone might be willing to trade for or let you buy them.

I've done a little bit more work on my autocannon.

added a blade and support bar.




Now I must get some shoulder pads sorted and convert 2 more heads.

Any other suggestions?

Similar to what you can typically find on top of bolters, a small stub on the top of the end of the autocannon barrel, opposite the blade, kinda like an aiming thing? Most 40k guns have something there is why i suggest it.

Holy living feth, that missile launcher looks like it fires nukes. Good job!
I particularly like the chain linking the autocannon to it's owner, that's very cool. In fact, the autocannon is probably my favourite.

Thanks grim, steal away i like the dino your sculpting.

After looking for different ideas for how im going to do the helmets. I decided on an Anubis style head. It turns out that someone has already used this idea by converting Space Wolfs wolf heads. Today I tried to scult my own with green stuff but failed, so no pics, but I have not given up.

Any tips would be greatful

I have started a Raptor squad idea.

I've gone with termi heads cut back and fangs added. The jump packs are gona be Sanguinary Guard with gargoyle wings, MasterSlowPoke has done this for a night lord and it looks cool. The feet I want to be claws, like a bird of pray.

Here is test head 1

Nice Job on your havocs, they remind me of your awesome terminator with reaper canon. You really have a skill for the metal tubes.

Where did you get the bat wings on this one? I have to grab some!


The converted termie helmet looks good, but I still fear it might be a little over-sized for Regular CSM bodies. However, I think that reducing the width of the head would solve this (he doesn't need ears, does he? )

I'm glad to see you've started a new thread!

Thanks Hyena, I really enjoy making the havoc guns, brass tube is the best


The bat wings are from warhammer skeleton heads. I carefully cut them of the skeleton helmet. There are a few different ones.


This is what the head looks like on, I am gona convert these wings with a bigger booster rocket for the aspiring champion, he needs claw fists too. Do you think it looks ok? Ears I didn't think of that but, yes I think it would give it the look I want, so may try that tonight.

It looks fine. I'm curious to see how you'll work with the claws!

Thanks for the info, I'll try to get some skeletons heads (just in case).

Had a long day at work today, so didn't do much modelling.

I did try the ears, and here is the test ears 1 photo.


While I had the camera out, I thought I would take a couple of pics of the first model I tried converting, my obliterator. I really should finish him.




And a pic of my work area, which has become very messy

Ears are coming just fine IMO. It helps to breaks the GK look of the head. Good work.

Great GSing on the obliterator.(someone's been carfully watching Tinfoil's work, right?)

@element - thanks man, your BA army is coming very nicely.

@Captain Shrike - thanks alot, do you have a WIP of how you posed your dread leg, I want to try something like that.

@Hyena - there's no work today so I can do more with the ears. I hadn't seem tinfoil's work until recently, although I really like what I have done, It would be done in a totally different way now. The next two will be more tendrily

Amazingly all my parts orded for my raptors came at the same time, and with an unexpected day off the fun begins.

I've taken a photo of all the parts I'm gona use, and hope in a couple of hours I can give you something nearly complete. I will take WIP photos too, so if you like it you can have ago yourself.


I' gona try and change the leg postions, so they look inflight, this could go wrong . The feet are coming off, and the genestealer claws are taking their place. I've gone for the ribbed CSM body, because I feel it goes with the wings. The gargoyle tail from the main body is gona be cut off and used to fill the gap between the wings at the back.

Wish me luck


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Ok here we go.
First I've cut up the legs at the hip, and positioned them to they hang straight down.

the feet have been removed for the claws to go.

The wings have been glued in place with the tail. The wings had to be bent back so they met up with the tail, then glued at the tail to hold in position. Gs will be used to fill the gap.

In this photo you can see the legs sweep backwards, so he looks like mid flight.

With weapons now, the ears are gone, because I decided to drop the head

Now I'm working on the claws, the genestealer claws are perfect for this job.

Taking a break for a bit, then will be right back on it.

This, my friend, is turning from "awesome" to "epic"!

Your jump pack is absolutely great (the tail is a nice addition), and the claws/feet are really going to give your model a dangerous look.
Will some of your raptors have their legs and claws positioned as if it's landing on a victim ?
