I blame KrautScientist...

I've been concentrating on my Inqu][sitor models (and blog: http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/532626.page ) recently, but every Hero needs an Enemy, so I started work on a Dark Mechanicus Helbrute conversion to fight my Inq retinue.

I'm co-blogging his WIP/PIP into this blog now to fill out the Legion a little more for actual game-play, utilising this big bad guy (and any subsequent Dark Mechanicus) within the playing structure of regular 40k, as well as back in Inq28.

These Dark Mechanicus creations will be painted in a vaguely similar style to the Legion of Thorns, though these newer models will belong to the Legion of Thorns Nurgle-worshipping splinter cadre known as the Wretched, and therefore will be a lot more grungy...
Spoiler:
(Over in Inqu][sitor world, the Wretched will be getting a few biggerised CSMs, which will obviously not fit into the Legion of Thorns 'standard-sized' marine force... so you'll have to go over there to see them.)

Previous WIPs of the Helbrute:
















There's a few more I'll add later.

AND...
I'm finally going to paint the Mournblade Terminators...

Because the base color of both the Legion and the Wretched is Castellan Green, and as I will be spraying that layer onto the Helbrute, I might as well spray the Mournblades as well...
(Though the 6 layers of green still haunt me...)

Cheers all!

That marine is fantastic conversion/kitbash. I am really tempted to steal something like that for my army.

Awesome work as usual! The Mournblade Terminators look fantastic, as does the Helbrute. I'd love to see your tae on a Heldrake.

Just read your blog from start to finish, gotta say I'm loving your conversion work. The terminators in particular stand out but you've got an excellent way of bringing a sense of dynamism to your models. Looking forward to seeing some paint on those termies!

Some touchup required, and a nice brown oil wash, and the armour should be done!

Crackle medium is the new black or some such. The corroded effect looks great.

Concerning Zamael:

Brother-Sergeant Zamael of the Sons of Horus was left for dead on the battlefield following the Great Betrayal on Isstvan III. In the midst of the battle he had fallen to a chain-sword wielding Loyalist, loosing both legs, a part of his right arm and most of his internal organs. When he was found by the Wretched Sons he had been dragging himself with his remaining arm across the charred surface of the planet for a week.

The Wretched Sons were a small remnant of the Sons of Horus combined with a smattering of Death Guard, Emperor's Children and World Eater survivors - all still loyal to Horus - had been inadvertently left behind following the withdrawal of the Warmaster's forces. Knowing no rescue was forthcoming, they had taken to wandering the scarred surface of the planet scavenging weapons and technology, in the process finding a surprising number of survivors.

Zamael was taken to the Dark Mechanicus Artificer Phledexus, whom the Wretched Sons had taken in and set to work repairing a cruiser in the hopes they might eventually escape the planet. Phledexus took the dying Zamael and entombed him in a battle-damaged but functional Dreadnaught sarcophagus to initially preserve his life, but the mutagenic side-effects of the toxic mix of chemical and biological weaponry deployed on Isstvan III was attacking Zamael’s transhuman genetics. Excited by the prospects, Phledexus could not resist tampering with Zamael’s broken genes and implementing elements of the Obliterator virus into the Dread's cyber-mechanics.

The Wretched Sons eventually repaired the crashed ship and left Isstvan in an attempt to join their Warmaster in the final assault on Terra and the False Emperor. Warp storms and other misfortunes delayed them and eventually the Wretched Sons learned of the fall of the Emperor, and the death of Horus, at which time they fled like the remaining Heretics for the Eye of Terror. By this time Zamael had grown beyond the confines of the Dread chassis, warping in screaming agony over years into a raging weapon of terror and destruction, and in the process becoming utterly and irrevocably insane.

I especially like how you have managed to blend the flesh and the corroded nasty metal together.
I especially like that you got rid of the under-arm tickler tentacles too and some of the more ott bits.

I am guessing that with him being irrevocably insane, the techpriests haven't managed to get near him for a while to give him his bath hahaha...

Seriously though, lovely work!!

So, the first pics were washed out and too bright, so I've played with the levels a little and now the colors are more true to life.

Here's a couple more, angled from slightly higher:
