Update

Christmas has came & gone, hard to belive how these few days can be really busy. On the Iron Warriors, sadily I did not get much work on the Rhinos with the plasticard/styrene armour along with icon due to getting really bad headace.

However I mange to make up for this on work on other stuff for my IW. 24th Dec saw me buy the bulk of what I need for my conversion, also mange to get a single Obliterators painted.
While Christmas day it self saw me getting my finial unit, Chaos Battle force which give me enough models & bits for my third Chaos Marine unit in Rhino. Also got some finecast Raptors as I need there jump packs for my Daemon Prince/Warsmith.

Here the start of my third Rhino unit of Chaos Marines

Posted Image

WIP, they where painted in my local GW store a hour before I had to go & get my train. I want this third unit to be Combat heavy, like those in Storm of Iron where they are slow going to Khorne, but there not all out Bezerker like those of the World Eater. Like Death Company but with out the Black Rage if this make sence. So I'll be arm most with two close combat weapons being Chainsword & Chainaxe.
I'm also going to have a bit more blood on them, those who played Space Marine on PS3 or Xbox, that the sort of look after you slaughter a hoard of orks in the computer game.

Obliterators -

This was the Obliterators I painted on the 24th Dec while in my local GW store to get some my own hobby time. I'm thinking of replace the right servo arm, just while painting him I drop the model, like wise my order arrive with the Bile backpack, think it'll look cooler.

My unit of Two Obliterators in my 1500pts list

Posted Image

The Obliterator on the left << has use the bottem part from my orignaly Obliterator I posted a while back

Posted Image

Just I was not to happy with the orignaly Obliterator as he was to much Terminator. While I am useing Terminators as the base of my Obliterators, I want them to still stand out a bit & not led to confusion during the game as it all to easy to make mistake during the heat of the moment like in a tournament.
So I took of the top part of the orignaly Obliterator & as seen above there, replace the top part complete, I wanted to keep the base & the legs as painting wise & well for the base a lot of work went into them.

So right now I am happy with the new Obliterators as well as the one I shown a few days ago. Just fitted the image I had in my mind when I was thinking about converting them & from the art work in codex 3.5 show of the Obliterators.

That it for now. Next update should be Sat.

My Iron Warriors have been arrange for there first game in a while, it will be this Sat in my local GW store. So right now I got to build between tomorrow & Fri

+ Warsmith - Add Raptor Jump Packs
+ 2nd Terminator unit - Get them all built up. I might hold of painting & add trophies until I seen the new Undead models which was leak on warseer during Christmas.
+ 7 (?) Chaos Space Marines - 1x Champion, 2x Autocannons, 1x Icon, 1x Melta & then 2x Chaos Space Marines
+ 1 Rhino - Hope to spend some point tomorrow painting the inside of the Rhino before build it.

+ Rhinos in general - Still need to get the plasticard done, see how time is. I've got a lot of idea for Crusifed Space Marines for my Rhinos. One going to be Emperor Champion from the Black Templars who'll be part of my 3rd/new unit of Chaos Marines I shown above. While Unit 1 the first Iron Warriors unit I shown, they will get a Ultramarine from the 4th Company, thinking of haveing the Ultramarine look like he surive a ord blast only to be gun down by the Iron Warriors as they'd advance into Imperial lines.

Also need to try get some Object Marker done. Thinking for the d3+2 mission, have Black Templars with Chaos Icons from each chaos god, like my Mk5 IW army from 2008 - 2009.
Then I'll need to get a Object marker for Capture & Control? one object each which will be a Iron Warrior carry the all might Iron Warriors 5th Grand Company banner.

So be a lot of phone taken & possible some from the game.

Hey IP question for you. What kit did you use for the spikes on this guy's helmet?


Spike can come from diffrent box sets

- Chaos Space Marines: In the box you get two spike with skulls on them. I tend to use them just cut to length you think would fit well?
- Warrior of Chaos: Just standard spike
- Space Marine Captain: Iron Halo
- Grey Knights: Ward Staff *Note* tend to use these for the shoulder pads only but could be use

The one in the photo you use is from the Chaos Marines. But these are the once I tend to use. If your useing Warrior of Chaos, make sure to file of the mold lines. Just I alway view Chaos as spike.

Bandwidth is low :P give it a week & the photos should return to normal. For tomorrow update I'll just use one of my other photobucket accounts.

On that note, mange to get a lot done to the IW today

- Daemon Prince/Warsmith now has his jump pack/wings from the Chaos Raptors. I am a big fan of finecast, this made my life easy when cutting up the Raptor Jump Packs & save some bits to use. Basicly the old metal once would have taken me agies saw though & not leave much of the Jump Pack. But finecast, with in 10 (?) Min the Jump Pack was cut up, lot of part could still be use & there a little smal;ler part in the middle of the Raptor Jump Pack, so use this to the Daemon Prince as well. Photos should show what I mean.
But overall happy with Finecast, make my life easy when converting.

- Rhinos are built. Two of the three Rhinos have some plasticard armour, but there still a lot of work to be done. The third Rhino was just built a few moment ago, sort of why I am take a break as well as sculpting some parts on the Daemon Prince model.
Just need to finish off the plasticard armour & get some armour for the Front & back armour to help make the tanks look more seige like. Also get the IW/Chaos Icon cut out of plasticard & get around to converting up the Crusifed Ultramarine 4th Company (1st Iron Squad) & Black Templar Emperor Champion (3rd Iron Squad)

- Third unit, I only mange to build a further two models for these. One being the Champion & the other being Melta. Due to running out of bits. But hopeful try pick up a box of Chaos Marines that some stage or I am able to get some bits from friends.
But this will have to wait as any money I got so far will be going toward the Throne of Skulls April ticket which gose on sale next week (3rd Jan)

- Chaos Terminator are built but not finish. I'll get the trophie rack on there & try get some IW helmet on the Terminators, but I want to hold off finish them until I seen what the new Undead kits are like for more conversion or what bits they can offer.

- Started on the Object Marker, but due to time (how time gose funny in the warp when your building) only got a bit done. But pretty happy with the idea, when getting the game tomorrow, talk to some my friends for there view & for more idea to add to the object marker.
Should easy get the rest done tomorrow afternoon. Object Marker are Black Templars with Chaos Icons from each of the Chaos Gods & the Undivided icon through them, ment to be sacrifice them/to turn the planet my Iron Warriors are battle on into a daemonic world.

So tomorrow I should hopful get that game & get some photos.

Looking forward to seeing the new stuff. And Photobucket is definitely a pain in the arse with its bandwidth, but I guess it's necessary.

Space Marine helmet I'm unsure which chapter I want to base it on right now, my IW have fought many over the past ten years!! :lol:

The Jump Packs from Raptor set. Finecast is the best. It made my life easy when converting & amonut of none damnge bits. While it if was metal, would ment saw up the back pack. Finecast only took me a mere few min to get those Jump Pack cut & then added onto my Warsmith.

Yes as said there it the Jump Pack for the Raptors set. Just I went for this over "Wings" model wise due to
- Transport. I seen friends conversion with the Wings & just the amount of room they take up. Not just that but the amount of time they break off or catch onto cloth during games.
I've chosen to go for the Metal Daemon Prince over the plastic version due to this being one of my all time favrout models in the GW range.

- It Iron Warriors, just fit in my view ;)

Just went with a pack of Finecast Raptors which make life easy when cutting up the Jump Pack.

Rhinos are nearly done, I think a few more hour during this week should see all three complete. First one should be complete by tomorrow night with the Crusifed Ultramarine on the front hull, if all gose to plan tomorrow I should be able to get this Rhino painted some point this week!

Quick update

Edit* If photos seen brighter my camera was acting up while take photos, need to take photos during the day when day light better!*

Mange to spend today that my local GW painting Warsmith Abhorred Riddick

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

I've alway like the metal Daemon Prince model, one of my favrout models along with the Limited Ed Emperor Champion, among many more. Even before 3.5 codex came out many year ago I was lucky to get the Daemon Prince model pre-release from a friend who attend Games Day. Since them my Warsmith went from mortal to Daemon Prince purely because how cool the model is.

Still a lot to be done on the painting front.

Rhino for my first squad of Chaos Marines - Chaos Squad 1: Iupatus Proeliator

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Like my Warsmith, still a lot to be done painting wise. For the Rhino all the extra armour & icon are made from plasticard or styrene, I done a NQ to HND model making course in Glasgow & alway aim to bring in element from the course into the hobby. I've went for extra on the front & back armour as well, in my view Iron Warriors use these are seige ram just as much as transport to carry the elite squad of Chaos Marines.

The crusifed Space Marine from the Ultramarine 4th Company (hope Graham McNeill dose not mind :) ). This will be one of the two crusifed Space Marines. The aim for the Ultramarine was to have it as though he live though a bombardment, well apart from lossing his legs. Squad 1: Iupatus Proeliator saw him, use the bolter to kill the Ultramarine & then add the Ultramarine as a trophie.
As said in past post, the next one will be a Black Templars, possible a Emperor Champion base on my own Black Templar force (been agies).

Also note on the trophies. I got the Novemarine (?) which is base on my friend Euan Space Marine force. While the Eldar are base on my friend & fellow Games Workshop staffer back in 2008, Andy

Andy eldar back in 2008 vs my Iron Warriors (Mk5) during the ELG 40k Radio world wide war tournament.
Posted Image

As well as the Eldar helmet on the Rhino. I have the Farseer as a trophie on my Warsmith.

Also just got a lot of spare bits from people today to help out to finish my Iron Warriors force. It mainly parts to convert up the last five Chaos Marines, four for my Third Chaos unit & then the last one for my Second Chaos unit arm with the Autocannon. Just need to wait on my mail order to arrive, order some Imperial Battlefleet Gothic ship (plastic) for some bits & to start a third BFG fleet.

Also my Iron Warriors will now be going to Throne of Skulls April, just bought my ticket yesterday & hopeful it'll arrive in the next few days!

Going to try spend the next few days getting the Rhino all ready & build the last few Chaos Marines for both 2nd & 3rd Chaos Marine units. Hopeful get everthing to the undercaot stage soon.

Not many people can do that metal DP justice but you certainly did. I'm suprised the raptor jetpack fits so well though. I saw you widened it a bit but I thought it'd be too short. I may have to try that out myself as well!

The Raptor Jump Pack ok once the bits are glue into place & green stuff. If anyone going for this I'd suggest useing Finecast backpack, make life a lot easyer than the metal Raptor Jump Pack & it will only take few min's vs the metal version.

Little quick update.

My Iron Warriors are near fully built now. With a mere two Chaos Marines which still need to be started, to my unit of Terminators waiting on some bits & find the time to make my Object Marker.
But so far here is what I got done

Rhino for 3rd unit - Apocalypse

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

I've just to add trophies & battle damnge before the Rhino is ready for painting. The Icon is the second version as I was not to happy with the originaly Chaos Icon I made for the Rhino hatch. Happy with how this second one turn out, I just need to add some green stuff to this & to finish the Crusifed Black Templar

Rhino for 2nd squad - Be Graphicus

Posted Image

Posted Image

Rhino for the 1st squad - Iupatus Proeliator, hope the new photo are ok vs last update mange to take the photos during day light hours

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Then some Chaos Marines, after some friends give me spare part last week.

Autocannon for 2nd squad - Be Graphicus
Posted Image

Posted Image

Autocannon, Melta & Icon for 3rd unit - Apocalypse

Posted Image

Posted Image

Some of the parts are thing like the Skulls from the Beastmen Ghorgon/Cygor model release a while ago. A few friends had pick these up for there beastmen army & give me some of the spare skulls, which I use some on the Autocannon backpack.
The Icon Chaos Marine is just waiting on some of the Forge World Red Scorpian Honour Guard helmet.
http://www.forgeworl...NOUR-GUARD.html

Some more photos of my Daemon Prince

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

I'm going to try spend a bit of time today painting my Warsmith model, try aim get the model finish by the end of this week.

Quick photo of the army while I was take photos of the above

Posted Image

As said there I still have two Chaos Space Marine to make, just need to paint strip some stuff like the Iron Warrior metal helmet parts.

While the unit of Terminator, after seen this month White Dwarf I really like the new undead range (bought a army back when I was a staff memeber).

Posted Image

Hope to use trophies like this (human body on the spike) on the second Terminator unit, if not then I'm sure my Rhinos would not mind some more cool trophies. A friend has said they'll be given me this part when they start there Undead army as a thank you for all the help I have given them toward there Blood Angel army.

Also I'll be hold off my 3rd squad Apocalypse Champion. Though he is made, I might make some changies. Part of this is to do with the recent Forge World newsletter, which show a Minatour Chplain (from Badab Wars books?)
Posted Image

I would like to use this helmet on the Champion. As said when I shown 3rd squad - Apocalypse, they are ment to be like the Iron Warriors from Storm of Iron, those who are slow going toward Khorne, but not all out Khorne Bezerker like the World Eater.
Just need to find out when this model will be release.

Next update should be Sat. I'm going to take a photo of my Iron Warriors that my local GW as by then they should be built & undercaoted or that least built :( Then it to get everthing painted for Throne of Skulls April.

Yes, it the T face Bezerker head rom the Khorn Bezerker range. Just fit IW along with the metal IW helmet bits GW sell, as well as the Forge World Red Scorpain Honour Guard set.

I try to break up the T face head with add spike, keep them normal, add camera from the Space Marine helmet or bionics useing the googles from the Scout Sniper range :(

Yeah they do look pretty good with the IW but they just happened to catch my eye was all. That's a good thing right? By the way, great looking army, can't wait to see the finished product.

Yes it a good thing. When I work on a army I alway like to try get stuff like the T face bezerker head that will catch out as it where. Lot of people have commented in the past when the see a army from a far it look ok, but up close it complete diffrent. While mine they like see the army up close, see all the details, for exsample my Space Wolves with the Viking runes or thing like the puchies or a trophie may look.

On army note - Rhinos now have there trophies. But I will hold off from undercaoting them until Sat now see if my friends are able to give me those parts from the brand new Undead range.

Yes, as seen here I use the T face helmet a lot. Along with the Metal IW helmet & have mange to get a few more Red Scorpain Honour Guard helmets (need to stock ip on these for a future Black Templar force) recently which has added to my Iron Warriors look.

http://www.forgeworl...NOUR-GUARD.html

Are you painting/working on anything new?


Tomorrow I will be taken photos of my army that my local GW store. I've still got
- 1x Chaos Marine. Got the parts set aside, just waiting to see the new Undead models tomorrow & other bits.
- Object Marker
- Second unit of Terminators. While built as said in the update there I am wanting to see the new Undead range, few friends have commented they are starting a force or adding to one they go & will give me the bits I need as a thanks for all the time I help them out with there own armies in the past.

I've mange to get a few more Red Scorpain Honour Guard helmets to finish off both Terminator & few Chaos Marines models I built over the past few days.

But pretty much near half way mark. By this I mean all models (not already painted) will be undercaoted. If all gose to plan should be that this stage by Monday.

So tomorrow I'll get a photo of my whole force, as well as unit by unit photos. Going to get some painting done that my local GW store as well, just get some current models finish before I move onto the next unit. Then if I get all the bits from the undead range, get some photos of the finish conversion when I get home.

Update

Some time when working on a army, it good to take a few moment to check how everthing going & see where the project is going. Today I mange to get some time to take the photo of my 1500pts force that my local GW store.

Since these photos where taken. I mange to buy a few bits & also some parts arrive in the post. This has allowed me to finish building my Iron Warriors force to 1500pts. Just have the object marker left to build.

Posted Image

3rd Iron Squad, since then has had the last Chaos Marine built (in the photos there only nine Chaos Marines out of the ten in the unit)

Posted Image

Second Terminator unit. Since the photo was taken, there head hace been glue as some of the parts that came from the post where Red Scorpain honour Guard helmets I wanted to use on my IW model. Really nice helmet & look really cool/fit in with the Iron Warriors look

Posted Image

One of the four Obliterators

Posted Image

My Warsmith, since this photo was taken. I spent time in the local GW store finish painting my Warsmith, hope to get the static grass, truft grass & varnish the model tomorrow.

Posted Image

2nd Iron Squad

Posted Image

1st Iron Squad

Posted Image

The first of the Mk2 Obliterators I made since starting this project

Posted Image

The squad of Two Obliterators, since this photo I spent some time painting these Obliterators along with my Warsmith/Daemon Prince.

Posted Image

First Terminator unit

Posted Image

Then some other photos I took of the IW

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

As said since these photos where taken. I mange to ether buy the last few bits I needed & some parts arrive in the post today. This has allowed me to finish building the second Terminator unit & the last Chaos Space Marine for the 3rd unit of Iron Warriors.

I'll be spend tomorrow undercaoting the new models along with the Rhinos. Then spend the next few days getting the models up to the wash stage. Just this will allow me to paint the models when my own hobby time permits.
It will just be the Champion 3rd Iron squad who will not be undercaoted, waiting on the release of the Forge World Chaplain shown a few week back in there newsletter.

I'm also going to need to get my Object marker made soon. I am still working on idea, I want to keep with the Chaos icon that have been stab though the fallen Black Templars, as background wise it would try show my Iron Warriors trying to turn this world they are attack intoa daemonic world.
But just thinking what else to add to the base since there a lot of space.

Update

Just a little bit of a quick update.

I've spent best part of today that my local GW store getting as much of my Iron Warriors project painted as possible

Posted Image

Since I have painted the inside of the Rhinos. I though be cool to have somthing for the hatch area. So today I added the Iron Warriors motto "Iron Within, Iron Without" & then a list of battles my Iron Warriors have taken part in like Medusa V in 2006 or the 13th Black Crusade which many veteran gamers will know all to well.
With the other Rhinos I will be doing the same idea, but diffrent lay outs & if the Chaos Star icon show up in the photo, this will be base upon each of the unit squad marking.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Apart from the Black Templar, the Daemon Prince - Warsmith Warsmith Abhorred Riddick has been finish. Happy with how he has turn out & really like useing both type of Games Workshop turfts. With the turft (or any static grass) it worth useing Super Glue for this & varnish the models. Just the heat from these dry, think of it like a Ballon that been static electricity. Just these make the turft grass stand up better.

Posted Image

My second unit of Terminators. These where finish on Sat afternoon as the bits I needed arrive sooner than I though. It the Red Scorpain Honour Guard helmet from Forge World (Librarian Loth? kit). I really like these Helmets & hope Forge World release these in the future as a set by them selfs like the other armour sets they release over the past while.
Fit in really well with the Iron Warriors. I'm going to be painting this unit next week if all gose to plan.

Posted Image

Posted Image

The last Three Iron Warriors, again waiting until some parts arrive like the FW honour guard helmets. These will be part of my 3rd Iron Warriors unit, who will be sub theme on a unit slow going down the path of Khorne.

Posted Image

I mange to finish these Obliterators off during the weekend, getting them varnish & adding the GW water effect onto the base.

Posted Image

Rhino for the 2nd Iron Warriors unit.

Posted Image

Rhino for the 3rd Iron Warriors unit with the crusifed Black Templar

Posted Image

Four of the five Object marker I am making for the d3+ 2 Object base mission from the rule book. Each of these will be base on a Chaos God, just got the bits to make the Undivided marker today. Idea is each Templar has been scarifce to the Chaos gods to try turn the planet into a Daemonic world, to let the IW run free in term of the way they can turn it into a fortress world or somthing along those lines.

I'll also be making a Object marker for Capture & Control. This will be a Iron Warriors who will be carry my Grand Company banner. Just need to find a spare Warrior of Chaos Banner to make the conversion.

Then since Sat there, my army as it current stand after spend Sunday undercaot models that where recently fully built

Posted Image

Tend to keep new armies in a box like thise while I am working/painting them. Just allow me to keep a overall view of the army, what need to be done, what finish & general see how the army look over all. Also while building, make sure I do not make double of the same model/conversion.
If anyone spot the Emperor Champion, he will be for a future project. Black Templars like my Iron Warriors, is a army I collected for a long time, infact since the 25th Limited Ed Emperor Champion was release (1999?), all due to how cool the model is. So when the Templar are release (?) I'll be starting a fifth Templar force as another tournament force, also it been five year since I fought useing the Templar. My painting skills have change a lot since then & also Games Workshop release a lot of cool models over the years for conversion.

So that it for now. I'll be spend some spare time this week to finish off the 3rd Iron Warriors units. If thise gose to plans then I'll spend a bit during the weekend to paint my two Rhinos.
I'll also have my Object marker made for the d3+2 mission, set.

I really like this force, everything looks great, like your space wolves. Your reports on throne of skulls combined with me wanting to play new people helped me enter the second October event, and I'm heading to April as well. I hope to buy you a drink when I'm there as a way of thanking you for giving me the inspiration to start going :tu:

The only thing I would suggest, is giving your daemon prince a bigger rocket pack, as it looks a bit wimpy to actually lift him off the ground, but he does still look pretty awesome.

Cool. Will you be take your Grey Knights army?


Update

After yesterday that pretty much my 1500pts force built with Object marker now & after today (apart from a Champion) anything still in bare plastic will be undercatoed.

I mange to get some time to paint my 3rd squad

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

There still a few bits to finish off. The Banner still need Chaos Rune on the back bit. While the unit overall, as said in past update I want this unit to slow be going toward the path of Khorne, sort of why they have the two Close Combat weapon on most of the Chaos Marines. For this I want to add some blood that been splater from a recent kill, for those who have played the Space Marine computer game it'll pretty much be like that.
But I'll be testing out on a spare model before painting this onto the unit.

Capture & Control object marker (one each)

Posted Image

Posted Image

The banner is currently a work in progress, which will see a Plasticard Iron Warrior icon & few other bit of detail. But that'll also be painted by it self just to get more spare & then glue onto the object marker.
For the Object marker, he'll be the Iron Warriors who will carry my Grand Company Banner into battle - in capture & control mission.
I'll be getting the model undercaoted later today & when I got some spare time try to get this Object marker up to the wash stage.

Then my (Mission with d3+2) Object marker

Posted Image

I've replace two of these since the last update as I was not to keen on how they look once finish. Each of the object marker have the Icons from the Chaos Gods & then the Undivided icon. Taken from the Chaos Space Marine upgread spure, Bloodletter & Chaos Marauder.

Posted Image

Just another quick over look on the army.

All I have left is that Champion for the 3rd unit, but it just waiting to find out when Forge World will be release that Chaplain model for that cool skull helmet.

Posted Image

With the army almost done for 1500pts. I'll be aim to add another 250pts to this force as a few of the local tournament area here are 1750pts. For this I'll be added two more Obliterators for the fire support & because I like the model/units & enjoy the conversion work done recently. Then I'll be added a five man Chaos Marine unit with Icon & Plasma Gun, this unit will be looking after my Object or given support in kill points.

So far all I got left to paint in my 1500pts force is

- 4x Terminators
- 2x Rhinos. One of these is currently being painted this week
- Object marker
- Champion for 3rd unit, when the Chaplain model from FW is release.

I'm going to try get another army photos on Sat when I am in my local GW store. Also look like my Iron Warriors since this new version, will have it third game against Space Wolves this week. If the oppent ok I'll get some photos during the game.

Aye I'll be bringing Draigo wing again, still deciding on my final list but got it down to 2 lists :D

I'm really liking your force, I have had a soft spot for iron warriors since reading storm of iron, and have a few badly painted iron warriors in my mismatched first ever army :D and I love miniguns too.

Your oblitorators look great too. And your objective markers might inspire me to get mine painted (3 plaguebears, yes bears). And maybe try and get one sorted for capture and control, but we shall see, I really don't enjoy painting...

Really looking forward to throne of skulls. And all the great armies there :D

Looking good IP. That a jump pack on your DP?


Yes as said there it the Jump Pack for the Raptors set. Just I went for this over "Wings" model wise due to
- Transport. I seen friends conversion with the Wings & just the amount of room they take up. Not just that but the amount of time they break off or catch onto cloth during games.
I've chosen to go for the Metal Daemon Prince over the plastic version due to this being one of my all time favrout models in the GW range.

- It Iron Warriors, just fit in my view :thanks:

Just went with a pack of Finecast Raptors which make life easy when cutting up the Jump Pack.

Rhinos are nearly done, I think a few more hour during this week should see all three complete. First one should be complete by tomorrow night with the Crusifed Ultramarine on the front hull, if all gose to plan tomorrow I should be able to get this Rhino painted some point this week!

IP


Don't get me wrong, I love the old metal daemon prince, especially without huge dragon wings. Mine had the wings from the old 2nd edition metal daemon prince, the fantasy styled one. Mine is still on the older smaller base heh.

I just feel that it should have a bigger jet pack, could just be because mine is always dedicated to nurgle so i imagine him to be a bit heavier then a standard.
