So. I've been on a hobby break for about ten years but I've kept my old stuff at my parents house, occasionally digging them out and gluing some parts together. Then Dark Vengeance came out and i just couldn't resist those Chaos minis, needless to say, i had a relapse. So now my bitz box is stuffed again and here's what i've been working on.
My World Eater force is striclty a hobby project, never had much interest in gaming. Hence wysiwyg goes out the window with these guys, i just want to put some cool minis together. Inspiration comes mainly from KrautScientist, DarkVen, GuitaRasmus and noctus cornix, the masters of Chaos in my eyes. Be warned that my minis are in various states of WIPness as I like to work on lots of things simultaneously. Also my photos suck, had to get some pics before leaving for uni tomorrow.
This is the new champion for my berzerker squad, heavily inspired by noctus cornix. I've tried to incorporate a bit of the DV chosen aesthetics on him, with the cabling, chainmail etc. Still needs some GSing under the left arm, cable sockets and to tidy things up a bit. I tried to give him a relaxing, menacing pose, like he's picking out a worthy opponent while his buddys just charges who ever happens to be closest.
A Couple of termies. The one on top uses the legs from one of the DV terminators, I like the studs on his greaves but I'm wondering if I should add trims, opinions? I'm undecided about their heads though, the terminator sculpts are pretty bad, the details lack sharpness and are generally uninspired. Couldn't they at least have come up with some new horns for the helms? I'm thinking about doing something similar to DarkVens Atramentar with the helms, looks way more badass than some random horns. (Also pictured. a random head usin the khornate headcrest from Skullcrushers. Great source for bits)
Cant believe it's not Khârn! I imagine my warband being one of the saner parts of the WEs still around, as such they have a bit of a rocky relationship with Khârn. That said, i picked up this model a couple of weeks ago and i couldn't resist making him into everyones favorite maniac. Maim burn kill etc. Please disregard the clumsy GSing on the bottom of his bunnyears, gonna sand em down and add skulls. What about tassles? Does he look Kharny enough without them?
This axe from one of the DV chosen makes a pretty good gorechild with some chainsword teeth added. Looks suitably brutal.
Last but not least, my Lord. By far the most complicated conversion I've done. He uses parts from the termie lord, DV chosen champ, Skullcrushers and probably some more. As it happens, he sorta looks like Abbadon with that LC and deamon axe, might beused as a count-as.
Still some work to be done on him. Need to do something about his left shoulder pad, it sits too far out atm. I wanted to use a regular terminator pad but those damn bunny ears makes it impossible. maybe i'll just sand down the shoulder under it a bit, suggestions are welcome! I'm also unsure about adding the cape, it looks awesome but it takes away from his uniquity (is that even a word? probably not). Saves me a ton of trouble on his backside though
Yeah, not that inspired to sculpt something as boring as a termie butt.
Anyways, thanks for looking, C&C appreciated. Especially sculpting tips, I've still got lots to learn, I'm more of an experimenter than a sculpter atm. Peace out!
