I'm working on a Renegade Household to support my Worldeaters and Khorne Daemons and I wanted to share my progress here. The model below is very much a work in progress and I'd welcome any feedback folks have.

The head is a defiler head mashed together with eyes from two armiger face plates. The spiked trim is from the CSM Slaanesh banner. The groin plate is the top of the head of the old 2nd ed. juggernaut.

 

I'm not a huge fan of the ankle armor and I'm trying to improve it. Here's some initial work using spare bits from Khorne Bloodbound warriors. I'm not quite sure I like this or not. I'm tempted to leave them off entirely but I plan to try to at least fill the gaps and see how it looks:

For reference of where I'm headed, here are a couple of the other models from the household that I did last year.

Ultimately, I've got a Knight Gallant, 2 Helverins and 1 Warglaive to work on, giving me 2 Knights and 4 Armigers. The Knight above will get a second avenger cannon and the chainsword will go to the Gallant.

 

I'm priorizing the Helverins since I can fit them into lower point lists more easily than the Knights and they add some mobile firepower to a fairly assault-oriented list. Given my skill set, I plan a fair amount of kitbashing and a minor bit of conversion. I've seen some of the amazing sculpting done by Duskraider, Pandora's Bits Box and Augustus (among others) and I may try my hand at adding detail that way as well.

 

Thanks for looking!

Brilliant work so far. It will be interesting to see it when the project is finished.

 

Do you have any shots of the reaper chainsword? I'm planning to do a renegade knight to go with my Night Lords, and wanted to get some ideas on making chainswords look more vicious.

Slow painter, quick reader, many ideas but little patience.

Thanks for the kind words.  Assuming you meant the Knight, here's a side shot of the reaper. I can't take any credit for this, it's a stock forge world part.

If you meant the one on the Warglaive, I used the extra wing bits from the Warp talon kit to add some detail without doing a lot of sculpting.

Definitely the knight, but I appreciate the picture. I had forgot that they released a Renegade Knight kit from Forge World a little while ago. Shame it's no longer in production.

 

Scratch that, I was misinformed XP

Here's some progress on the Hellverin. Most of the cutting and gluing for the sub-assemblies is finished - there's a fair bit of green stuff gap filling to do and I going to try to add some detail to the shoulder pads and upper carapace. The bit of green stuff is the only part i've gotten started so far - maybe I'll make bigger progress this weekend.

 

The main thing I've done since the last post is the autocannons. These are clearly the defining feature of the model and I feel like they needed some embellishment. I took more bits from the Bloodthrone, the Bloodthirster kit and the Chaos vehicle sprue.

Here's the general effect so far. The pose still isn't final - I plan to make sure the elbows are away from the body.

I appreciate any comments or feedback you may have.

The customization is well done so far. Where'd you get the Daemon head?

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

It's the Chaos sensor array from the Vehicle Upgrade Frame:

Regrettably, it's not, although that was kind of what I was going for.  It's the one on the lower left from the Defiler kit:

Spliced with eyes from two of the armiger face plates. I'm not sure of the size of the one Gederas mentioned compares to an armiger. If it fits size-wise, that'd be a much easier way to get to a similar result.

Great work on the new Armiger so far! One small suggestion: I think you should shorten down the "centre spike" on the spiked halo above his head, so it's similar to the other spikes. It just seems a little distracting now (plus this has always bothered me about that specific bit).

Thanks - that means a lot coming from someone who has produced so many amazing models. It hadn't occurred to me to trim that down - it was irritating to get off the sprue intact - but I see your point.

In the last week, I've been working on adding some green stuff to the armor plates and I'm far enough along that there's something to share.

 

99VKf8P.jpg?1

 

As before, nothing is glued to make painting less of a headache but here's what the carapace looks like now in context. I also tweaked the spiked collar per KSci's suggestion and I think it's improved the overall look.

T1xLVgi.jpg?3

 

As far as green stuff use, I've done gap filling and 2nd things like the arrows but never anything like the spikes before - I leaned heavily on Pandora's Bits Box's tutorial (here) , although nowhere near that quality.I had a couple false starts getting here but I'm feeling good about it now but would appreciate any comments or feedback before I get to paint. While I don't want too big of a backlog (having finally gotten an army level of models painted) I don't have a well ventilated space for priming and the weather is too cold, too humid and too windy to lay down a primer coat currently. 

 

I'll start in on the second Helverin instead - one thing I learned from this one is that I ought to start with the armor plates first to allow multiple layers of green stuff to cure while doing the more mundane assemblies. I plan to do the guns and shoulder armor similarly but let me know what you think. This has been a good learning experience - hopefully I improve as I go and can do a better job as I build toward converting the Gallant.

 

Thanks for looking!

Excellent work on the Helverin! That's some pretty sweet sculpting right there! :)
