Edit: READ THIS FIRST!

A lot has happened to my focus since I started this blog. I've been asked to put some of the tastier stuff together, so people can get an overview. On page 51 I have put up pics of all the Dark Mechanicus I'm working on up, in a single post, since there's a lot of pages. Feel free to look through them, and please comment - I love getting comments and critiques.

About a month ago, I sold the Khorne army to a guy who will really appreciate them. I have to admit that while I liked the project, I eventually found my Death Guard and now Dark Mech much more exciting from a fluff and conversion perspective, so they moved on. My Death Guard isn't going to go anywhere though, they're too close to my heart, those nasty little buggers. I'll put up a collection of photos of those in the near future too.



And here's where it all started:

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Hi guys - my dreadknight project had quite a bit of interest (http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/386829.page), so I figured you might find this interesting as well.

I've been thinking about getting back in the game (in a very small scale, but just a game now and then for fun), but I can't really see myself playing Grey Knights. Great models, great rules, but they're just a little too pure for me. I read about someone making a khorne army, using blood angels codex, and this sounds like it makes great sense. I'm also considering using juggernaut mounted marines, using the sanguinary guard rules (movement, fear and extra armour save makes sense, doesn't it? Bear in mind that I've been out of this hobby for 15 years)

Back in the day, I used to field a very big chaos space marine army (nightlords and khorne), and I've always had a week spot for the chaos powers. I really like them all, but Khorne and Nurgle are really fun to paint and play. I've got 3 of the old chaos (also the present I guess?) dreads, and I really think the design team missed designing these. They just look kind of silly. Anyway, I got inspired; I want to field a berzerker/khorne army! It needs berzerkers, terminator berzerkers, berzerkers mounted on juggernauts, and a berzerker dread!

The current dreads are nice, but a bit static, and the chaos one just suck. The forgeworld ones are better, a bit static as well, but I like plastic - I can't say enough nice things about the new plastic models, even though I grew up with the metal ones. Anyway, I thought about it, and came to the conclusion that a furioso would be the closest thing to what I needed. And a box of bloodcrushers! This will make sense in moment.

I wanted it to be aggressive and roaring, like a machine and man, driven mad by frenzy, and roaring to the sky. I cut most of the symbols off of the DC dread (leaving the skulls), and cut as many spikes and put them on as I could, and used a juggernaut head, and put it on a scenic base. I'm pretty pleased with it. I also like the broken chains a lot - in the old fluff, the chaos dreads were chained, when on the spaceships, to control them in their madness - is this still true?

Anyway, 4 hours of conversion later - meet Spike aka Bob the blender (he really needs a proper name):











Let me hear what you think.

Also a nurgle deamon prince, just because I like the model:



I might make some plague marines as well, but we'll see.

The next project is assembling a great Berzerker terminator I've bought as well, and the juggers, and getting them painted.

Thanks for the nice comments guys!


A berzerker terminator lord joins the party:







I used a plastic terminator lord, and did some reposing on the legs, to make it look like he's charging, and ditto on the cape, so it follows the pose. The head is a shaved down bloodletter head from the bloodcrushers box, I think the roaring face suits the charging pose nicely.

Thanks mate, I just looked at your frost giants thread, amazing conversion work.

I just primed them, and I'll probably get a bit of paint on them tonight.

Blood Angel codex as a Chaos army!. . . Hmm. . . Sanguinius would turn in his grave!

Is a good idea though, i've actually considered myself a couple of times!

As for the dread, I don't like it. . . I love it! Really nasty looking! He'll look awesome in khorne colours!

Only one crit, I i'm not keen on the termies cloak, I'm not sure why but cloaks don't really seem khornate to me. Great pose though and again, he'll look badass when painted!

Keep it coming!

Emperors Champion: Just had a look a your blood angels - really crisp and beautifully painted. Would you mind sharing how you paint your gold? My basecoat is dwarf bronze, but it really annoys me that it is so thin that I have to paint 2-3 layers.

So, I've begun painting the lord;



A couple of problems though - the armour is a bit too orange for my taste. I've found this tutorial, and it looks great, so I guess I'll have to go buy those paints he used for the red:

http://www.40konline.com/community/index.php?topic=181487.0

Would I be able to make it more like his, using red glazes? Or should I start over?

Also, gold is pretty hard to paint nicely. I've basecoated with dwarf bronze, and highlighted with shining gold (the old one), and it doesn't look too good. Any tips for painting nice and quick gold?

Tipios - just saw your dread-thread - amazing work.

I've begun the painting of the dread - just got hold of a scab red, red gore and blood red, and will try out the method posted earlier. Whew... It's a lot of work getting a good even basecoat on a dread.

Thanks a lot guys - I'm a bit moved by the responses on this and the dreadknight - I'm just an old timer, coming back into the hobby, and having some of you guys, who do such great work, complimenting mine, really means something.

Killmaimburn: Thanks, your chaos conversions look great as well. You (and anyone else) is welcome to use any and all ideas. That's the great thing about a forum like this.

Emperors champ: Thanks for the tip - I've gotten hold of some shining gold (which is MUCH better than my 15 year old bottle - which has always looked more like a mix of silver and gold), but it's still quite thin - it needs 2-3 coats to cover.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
BTW: I've painted a large part of the dread - but's it's too dark to take pics now - hopefully, I'll have some tomorrow.

The kids at work and I were joking about the berzerker army I'm starting - you know, one could say that berzerkers are insane, perhaps a bit FLAKY? Now, if I called the berzerker lord Khelok, wouldn't it be awesome to have the army called Kheloks Khorne Flakes? And the dread would be called "Ol' Cereal Killer".

And... I'm pretty much finished! I got so excited about it last night, that I pulled through and got him to this stage. There's a bit of detail work left, and I'm still wondering if I should try a stippled armour look, but I'm pretty pleased with this so far. I think this is one of the best models I've done - paint and conversion.

I got the gold look as I wanted - 2-3 coats of shining gold, a devlan mud wash, and recess detailing with badab black. Perhaps it needs a shining gold highlight, but I kinda like the dull gold look - no one wants to get close enough to this guy to polish him! The red is getting much better, but still not completely there - or maybe it is - it looks kinda dark, and suits the berzerker theme well. It IS really difficult to get a good even layer, when scab red is so thin, though.

Anyway, here he is - this has been a blast to convert and paint.

Yup, definitely peed myself a little. Jeez, I thought they were scary before paint.... I just have to say, it's really inspiring how well the Ork Dred arm and Jugger head fit on the Dreadnaught. And, DAT TERMI... What more really needs to be said? Keep up the good work.
