Not sure how much of a shelf there is under the back of the wing there, but maybe a sort of upside-down double fin (like fangs) on the very back there could work?

Medium of Death, I like your thinking with the LoS bits.
Anvildude, thanks for the suggestion mate. I'll give it a try and see what I think.

The Violators on the back burner today though as what little time I did manage was spent building another couple of characters and doing a little painting. The characters I'll show tomorrow but here's as far as I got with the paint.

You know, there's just something about the whole concept of a nose axe on a muzzle that I like. I'll have to see if I can ever fit it in somewhere with Orks or something.

Ok here are the characters I knocked up both are reworks of earlier characters.

First up is Varrus KinSlayer
Here was his very first mockup.

Which progressed to this.

And here is how he looks now, I decided to just build a dedicated Kharn proxy so went for a more wysiwyg look.



The Greenstuff needs a lot of tidying on his faceplate. I did it late at night in poor light and at the time thought it looked fine. :-/

Next up is the main man himself. Lord Malek Deimos. Captain of the 18th Assault. Who fought alongside Angron on Armageddon and still feels the sting of his primarchs defeat here.

Originally he looked like this.


I decided he wasn't dynamic or imposing enough so grabbed a few bits and changed him to this. Obviously still a lot to be done but I think this is his final build. I may swap the head in the future but for now I'm more than happy with him.



I also finished the Jugger

Whoa, buddy, seems like you've been burning the midnight oil there! So much new stuff to comment on!

1.) Jugger champ

I am so glad you finally got around to using that jugger for something! Love the paintjob so far, and the rider should look great too, once you adda couple of bitz and give him "the earz"

2.) Warpsmith

Love the choice of head, and the Raptor legs you chose should give him the necessary heighth so as not to be dwarfed by all the servo-arms. Have fun getting those sorted out, btw! A task that almost drove me mad while converting my own warpsmith The one thing that really doesn't work for me is that bog standard sword arm, though: It's not WYSIWYG, of course, but I could care less. It seems far too plain, though: A true warpsmith needs something more ostentatious!

Apart from that, the WIP shows such promise! Love the DA smokestacks on the back! That's one element I wish I had added to my own warpsmith, but I simply ran out of room on that blasted backpack

3.) Varrus Kinslayer

I love how this guy gets better and better all the time. The newest version, although only slightly tweaked, perfectly conveys how a) he is just about to throw himself at an enemy and b) said enemy is in for a world of hurt. I am a huge fan of that particlar axe as well.

4.) Deimos

Man, I hate myself for this, but I have to be honest with you: I think I like the older version better. For some reason, the new build lacks the bulk and threat of the older version. On the bright side, I like the helmet crest and the GK bolter, but the torso's still looking too loyalist (you have to get rid of that =][= symbol, for one), and the head's a little too plain as well. I think this guy will need some more work (although I am more than certain that you'll hit it out of the park...eventually )

Thanks for checking them out buddy.

For the Warpsmith the sword is jut a stand in until I finalise the placement of his servo arms I can't really sort out his weapon arms. He will have the axe of his office.

As for Malek like I say there's still a lot to be done to him. I haven't touched the chest piece yet I'd just stick it all together to see if I was happy with the look and I am. So now I can start to sort out the details.

Do you have any kind of cloak to put on him?

I'm thinking that either the Wolf Guard pelt or the WHFB Chaos Chariot cloak would set him off. I quiet like that you can still tell that it is Grey Knight armour. It could be from one of the 100 Grey Knights slain when they banished Angron on Armageddon, your Lord having defiled it post battle.

I quite like the head that you have chosen, but for an alternative what about the Chaos Space Marine champion head? I think you had planned to use it on Varrus originally. He is looking great too. Think he needs to be charging up a mound of skulls though.

EDIT

Or maybe even this head?

I'm not to keen on a cloak to be honest. I do however have that head. I'd have to remove the horns to get it fit in the armour but that could be worth looking at. Dead Space Termi armour hmm.

Thanks buddy.

So I've been a little snowed under again lately so haven't had a lot of time for modelling. I did have a free day yesterday though so built something that's been in bits for ages.

I've made my own Storm Eagle wannabe type thingy.



I used the Chapter House extension kit but I have to say I wasn't impressed with it at all. The base piece was very flimsy and there's a lot of gaps needing filled.

I also came back to the Lord for riding on my Jugger that I painted a while back. I'm still torn on wether to give him the bunny ears as I really like the new Chaplain head.

Good to see this thread updated again, buddy!

As for your latest work, boxy Astartes flyer is boxy -- but I am no big fan of those vehicles anyway, so don't mind me

The chaplain head on the jugger rider is great, though: I guess I'd leave the bunny ears off in this case: It should make for a more standout piece that way. Maybe you could add a horsehair crest or a flowing topknot or something like that? There are matching crests in both the Centurion and Sternguard kits.

Also, that axe conversion is even more clever than it seems at first glance. Fantastic work!

Both flyers look really good.

That chaplain head works really well. I think adding the khorne bits would clutter it up.

What colour are you thinking for the face? Bone or Gold/Brass?

Brass with the eyes weeping a little blood might be suitably horrific.

Love that power cleaver/axe.

Thanks for the commens guys. Legio the chain is from the Warshrine kit I bought a while back to use for bits.

Guitarasmus, I've been looking at this model all week trying to psych myself up to paint him and I have to agree. The Chaplain skull is nowhere near sinister enough. I'll see what I can knock together later.

Here are some pics of what I've been up to. First is a group shot of most of the WIP stuff I have minus Slaghterblade superheavy and the two flyers.


The bikes and raptors are finally paint in progress. For the Raptors I'm looking for a bit of advice. I'm not sure wether to give all the squad gold helmets or just the champion? Thoughts?



Skull Champion Khorda is also finally PIP.

Once I finish him both my 8 man Zerker squads will be fully painted. I'm not even sure why it's taken me so long to get round to painting him???

Made a base for the Gorehound. Ignore the head as I'll be going back to the last design. I was just messing around with bits.

It still needs a lot of detailing before paint. I'm just waiting on the filler (which has been mixed with sand so will be textured as well but the white makes it very hard to see) drying before attacking it with more slate/sand etc.


And this sign I was thinking of writing Keep of the grass but someone on instagram suggested 'Beware of the Dog' which is a much better suggestion


I also have a final build of Malek Deimos. Hopefully the storm bolter looks better?



And something I've had in my head for a while. Looking at a few threads with a Nurgle slant recently has obviously corrupted me. This will be painted in Death Guard colours more than likely. Im still trying to decide which foot I like best, Im leaning towards the claw rather than the hoof.

Whoa! WHOA! Absolutely outstanding, buddy! I don't know where to look first: It's all so good!

Picking favourites seems unfair, but damn, that Helbrute! Is that the DV Helbrute under there somewhere?! I think he'd make an equally good Daemon Prince, by the way. Amazing work!

And Deimos...mate, I'm so sorry for doubting you when you posted your last WIP on him: This IS his definite version: that armour! And the rebreather mask is a marvelous fit! Still need to get rid of that =][= symbol on the chest, though

Krautscientist, thanks buddy. That is indeed the DV Helbrute. I had two of them and have wanted to do something with them for a while. I'm thinking it's almost time to answer the call of Papa Nurgle as a side project as my loyalist marines are going nowhere.

Medium of Death, it's only thanks to you this conversion came about. I was looking at the bits you sent while I had the DV Brute in my hand and kinda though 'what if??'

Hey buddy,

let me return for a more detailed reply. Don't take this as nitpicking, though: I am still completely blown away by your latest update -- can't stop looking at Deimos and that Helbrute. So much WIN!

Anyway, a couple of comments/suggestions:

Raptors:
I have to admit that these look a bit too much like Blood Angels, at the moment, although Raptors: that's probably only because none of the bronze trim is in place as of yet. If you're going to keep the helmets, I'd go with either bronze or bone coloured helmets for the whole squad. Bone coloured might work well with the helmet design -- it looked great on DeathPod's Raptors , for instance.

Titan base:
The shield on the Gorehound's base definitely needs to be about dogs However, why not go the whole grimdark hog and present it in High Gothic: cave canem
That ruin is just beautifully put together, btw.

Deimos:
Still blown away by this guy! it's obvious he needs some slight cleaning up, but seeing how parts of him are only tacked together atm, I am confident you're already on the case. The Inquisitorial seal needs to be removed, like I said. Have you considered using the GK hand holding a servered daemonette head by its hair for his left hand? That bit just exudes such careless brutality that it would be a perfect fit for his off-hand, plus it would nicely complement his sword hand. Give me a shout if you need that hand, I have it lying around and haven't used it for anything yet.

And another idea to consider: If you wanted to replace his drum-fed ammofeed, what about using some of the dangling ammo feed that came as a separate bit with the older CSM heavy bolters? Just an idea...

Helbrute:
I've got nothing on this guy -- he is pretty much perfect as is. So many clever little ideas on him: Using the magma cutters as his upper arms, the Centurion cables behind his faceplate,... marvelous! We are talking GuitaRasmus levels of coolness here, and no dice about it!
Come to think of it, not only could he be used as a DP or Contemptor (as someone on B&C suggested), but maybe even as a Decimator (might be a bit too small, though...). While it seems a shame not to see him painted in the glorious colours of the 12th, I can certainly understand your interest in Nurgle - happened to me too, if only for one squad and a couple of single models

Anyway, utterly amazing work! You're making your fellow legionaries look bad, brother...

Malika2, that's my thinking exactly. I already have some ideas for a Typhus conversion as well as a Sorceror.

Kraut, Thanks for the suggestions on the Raptors, I think I'll paint all the trim before deciding on a helmet colour.

Titan base, that's not a bad idea using the high gothic

I had looked at that hand but it's a power armoured hand, I used it on Krixus a while back the only Termi armoured one I have is holding a Bloodletter head which I did think was quite fluffy but just looked a little odd. I'm going to look for some chan fed ammo as I quite like that suggestion.

Main reason the Helbrute will be DG is I don't see it fitting with the rest of my WE. There's a bit too much fancy details for the no nonsense XIIth I don't know if he could be used as a Decinator although he is fairly big.

I don't want to shoot down your DG idea, since that model will look absolutely delicious in any colour, but using him as a Decimator, Contemptor or, heck, a Maulerfiend would get rid of the problem of it looking different from the other Dreads in your army: Maybe this guy is a daemon engine rather than a mere machine? Maybe he was elevated beyond the state of his lesser Dreadnought kin? Maybe he was important enough to be given a more exalted shell upon his death?

Anyway, not trying to talk you into anything here, and if you've got plans for a small DG spin off project, that's ace! But it would be a shame for this guy to not end up as part of a larger formation in some way or form. Plus I am confident he would rock in red and bronze.

On a related note, I am facing exactly the same problem atm, having just started painting my own DV Helbrute and needing to figure out a place for him in the 4th assault company...

It's cool buddy. Like is say it's just an idea at the moment. If I don't go Death Guard I may go Undivided ie Black Legion.

Here's a quick look at how the Gorehound stands at the moment. Added a couple of bits to the base and remembered I hadn't shown the progress on the Turbo laser.

I have to say the helbrute would look better in your red as well. I love me some deathguard, but the rounded curves on the armor pieces make me think more bluffing biceps and muscles over bloated walking corpse. Could you not field him as a daemon prince, one that had been trapped inside a dreadnought before being elevated? He has done so much carnage and defeated so many foes since being entombed that khorne has granted him prince priveledges. Also I think a huge mace for him might be awesome. Model a downed foe smashed into the pavement and the mace completely seperate from this model so you can add it on or take it off the base.

Glad I could provide some of the materials necessary to build it. It's worked out great.

I'd love to see it as a Death Guard dread. A more organic Nurgle force to contrast your World Eaters will be sweet.

You need to get that Warhound finished though, there are Knights afoot that need slaying!
