Thanks bud, more work on the Red Duke, sorted his leg pose and an LED into the cockpit, the pilot obviously isn’t the final build, I’m unsure how I’m going to go with the pilot just now but Sir Hektur is a stand in for now. The banner is almost there as well, I still need to finalise how I’m going to fix the chains. His weapons aren’t final either yet, I was just messing about with the magnets just now.

He looks most promising. I appreciate the effort you put in his cockpit. Where'd you get the skeleton decorating the twin autocannon's gun shield?

Codex has just arrived but I have to head out to work so won’t get a look at it until later tonight.

Here’s a quick peek at the Red Duke though.

Elduderino, thanks bud, and Quixus is correct, it’s magnetised but I think I’m going to go back with the Gatling gun on this guy, it fits the overall look of the model. The original Red Duke from WHFB lore was a highly skilled swordsman though so I may swap out his gauntlet for the chainblade with a few extras.

So it’s been a while huh? Again. Truth be told I lost a lot of interest in 40k for while there but I am slowly starting to come back around.

This year I intend to come back to the fold and finally complete my Knights army as well as update some of my World Eater units. I have sold of any other projects I had such as the Black Legion and most of my Daemons as well mainly so I can regain some focus on the projects that are important to me.

I made some progress on the Red Duke a couple weeks ago and basically completley repainted his armour, he still needs a few touch ups here and there and I need to finalise his trophies etc but I’m really happy with how he’s looking now.

F83C1529-C3BC-43DF-9621-B2AB90E19075.jpg

I also made a start on my remake of Malek Deimos, Lord of the XVIIIth Assault Company. This I think is his 4th (maybe 5th) iteration but I am really pleased with how he’s coming along. He’s magnetised at the elbows as per my last version of him so I can swap his loadout and I’m considering magnetising his neck as well so he can run the Zhufor helm when I choose. I’ve completely rebuilt his skull mask/rebreather as the last one took some damage when I stripped the paint from it. I figured it would be easier to rebuild than repair with it being so small and fiddly.
This is still early WIP but I hope you guys like how he’s progressing. He will eventually have a dual claw loadout as well when I can pick up another Talon of Horus and I’ve yet to work on any ranger weapons for him. I’m also planning a gorefather at some point as well.

He can still be used as a counts as Abby with this loadout.

And how he’s really gonna look.

Nice to see you back!

Nice start on Deimos, it'll be interesting to see what you come up with. Any bunny ears planned?

I'm super impressed by the head yet again, there has to be some serious precision involved to get those parts to fit like that.

Elduderino, thank you. The head does take a lot of work the basis is really simple it’s the top half of a vampire lord head with the lower half of the Legion of the Damned helmet, there is a lot of fiddly trimming and having to get them to fit though. Like I say this one went a little smoother than the last but still took the best part of 2hrs.

Gederas, haha thank you, I am hoping to be a more regular poster here again but real life being the way it is. Fingers crossed though, I’m planning on getting some of the new Chaos Terminators to make Deimos an updated Chosen retinue similar to my last unit as well.

The lighting on the knight mate looks sooooooo cool! Great posing too :tu:

Loving this incarnation of Malek Deimos - he looks so aggro! The Imortan Joe mask is genious and the axe is my favourite of his weapon choices as it screams Blood for.....you know who :evil:

Welcome back and thanks for sharing those projects. The Duke (still ) looks amazing - particularly like the AGC conversion - the new incarnation of your warlord is looking amazing, looking forward to seeing the dual claw load out!

That Abaddon... brutal! Really love the axe load-out but its the shield that's got me really thinking. Was toying with an IH breacher sheild on my own Abby conversion but wasn't sold. Seeing your take, I may have to re-visit the idea.

Grey, however, failed to capture the ape. It escaped to France where it murdered a rich widow and was hanged.

Kolgrim Deathhowl, thanks bud. :tu:

Midnightmare, thanks buddy, you’re bound to be sick of seeing the knight now haha. The lighting will be carried over onto all my knights once I work on my Iconoclast House again. They’re already wired up I just need to work on detailing them and working on their characters a bit more.

Glad you like the mask, he still needs some butchers nails and some tidy up work on the head but it’s getting there.:tu
With the axe I’m actually thinking of switching it to his left hand so he can wield both the axe and shields at the same time. Thinking as I type this I’m now wondering if there’s a way to maybe incorporate a combi bolter into the shield as well for wysiwyg. I might have some of the chest bolters from the Centurion kits somewhere. Hmmmmm

Sgt Blank, thank you, the AGC was really simple, all I did was attach a collar from the Skullcrushers juggernauts to the end of the barrels. :tu: I’m looking forward to seeing the claws as well, tracking down a second talon may be tricky though. :D

Powerhungrymonkey, glad you like the shield, my characters always had one from way back when it was a simple Skullcrushers shield to the last version using the manticore lords shield, it just helps me link it back to his gladiatorial days.

For those who may not have seen him here’s a couple of pics of Malek Deimos previous incarnations.
The very first version way back in 2011/12 i think.
F486E267-3E92-4EBD-8484-3C94FBA95F8F-284

Next is much more refined version around 2014,

794A6079-E160-4481-8760-353716728891.jpg
This was actually painted in a friendly contest with Krautscientist, but I was never really happy with it a I really rushed the paint job, I think I waited until a day or two before the deadline we’d set. :D

After that there was a few different takes, these all used pretty much the same components. I wanted him to look really imposing so switched to the Obliterator legs and a mashed up torso. I like his scale but I couldn’t quite get as dynamic a pose as I would have liked. I still made something I was reasonably happy with though.

98465199-8CDE-46F7-BA55-EB8291DF0228.jpg
The start of the skull masks, I had attempted this way back in 2013 using a Bloodletter head spliced onto a rebreather but it never worked. With the release of the blood warriors I knew I was in a better position to retry it. Then I realised I had some NL heads as well.
1C5BC875-7800-406E-8BB0-132F931181CC.jpg

The first time I’d really made the skull mask work imho.

9597443B-4794-413B-983E-179B716C4339.jpg

And how he looked until I damaged his mask by trying to repaint it. Looking back these pics are terrible but I no longer have the model as I sent it to Miniwargamer Dave last year so I can’t take any new ones.

014E9FCB-BF7D-4785-888B-EFB7E05C5022.jpg

This was his final version until I sent him on. I replaced the head with a berserker rebreather.
9A3E12E3-4EDB-403B-B0BF-E794A2EEBC66.jpg

And this was his Skull Chosen retinue that I’ll be remaking as well as these went with their lord when I sent him on.
56D48FA6-9110-4011-A981-C814F1BADB41.jpg
This time I will be magnetising them all though. I made these guys full plasma as I was taking them to a tournament and needed some ranged shooting. Plasma is always fun.

Hope you guys enjoyed that little trip down memory lane, I have to admit it’s the first time I’ve done it and it’s pretty cool to see how far I’ve come. :)

Yep, that was quite enjoyable! And next time you want to get rid of a model you should send it to me instead;)

Seeing how each version Deimos improved, I'm really excited to see the next iteration of his retinue turns out! I remember being so damn impressed by your terminators when I first saw them, but I think you can do way better now:)

Elduderino, :D I’ll keep that in mind buddy :tu: I’m looking forward to seeing what I can do with the new Terminator kit.

Sagentus, Thank you, and here’s hoping they’re still butchering away, they always performed really well for me in games.

Gederas, thanks bud. Here’s hoping.

So I managed some more work on him tonight, I came up with another axe for him and tidied up a few bits. I’ve started adding some cabling to his chest, it still needs a lot of work though. I also spent a lot of time on making a legion badge/personal sigil for his shoulder pad as well. I looked back at a couple of the older versions and have gone a similar direction to them. I’ll show them at the end as well. Everything still needs a lot of refining and tidying but I’m really happy with how he’s progressing. Ive removed his trophy racks just now, they will be re added but I need to work on them a little .
I’m still unsure how I’m going to make his combi weapons as I want them to really stand out from the standard kit without being too OTT.
Let me know what you guys think. :tu:

Here’s the older badges as well, or at least the pics I could find.
This one was made for the original Deimos and is basically a Bloodletter face with the lower jaw from a Defiler mask, I thought I had some pics of it from the front but can’t find them.
FEE290C6-1401-4965-9DE2-8D8A50697752.jpg

And this one was also on Deimos mk1. Again it was using the lower jaw of the Defiler faceplate (I think) with a skull as the planet.

And so the cycle begins anew...

 

Mate, you're back! So glad to hear from you again, and with yet another version of Deimos, no less: Seeing all those different incarnations was certainly a trip down memorey lane. I am still pretty partial to the second incarnation, personally speaking.

 

That said, I was really looking forward to you putting the Abaddon kit through its paces, and you seem to be making excellent progress so far! The different weapon setups are so well executed that it's hard to call a favourite (although the shield is a brilliant addition, in any case). If I have one complaint, it's that I think you can do far better on the chestplate design -- but then, that area isn't even finished yet, right?

 

Oh, and I really love the tweaks you have made to the Red Duke -- that new Traitor Knight faceplate works really well on him!

 

In any case, hope to see many more updates from you soon, buddy! :)

Loving the evolution of Malek Deimos, each is great and each one surpasses the last, and the new one will be the best yet! Where is the left claw from? Brilliant head and the Khorne tune really takes the silhouette away from Abaddon.

Brilliant work :tu:
