I've recently turned traitor for an escalation thing my gaming group is doing and i've decided black legion warband is for me specifically based on the THQ Space Marine Game - Chosen of Nemeroth

 

I've started building my guys and the ETL VII pledge.

ETL Havoc
 

I have need of some advice on achieving my conversion with Nemeroth, Here is a picture of my current progress and also the reference image i'm using as inspiration.

 

Nemeroth Reference
nemeroth WIP
 
Would love to hear peoples thoughts and constructive criticism!
 
Thanks!

Seems like you are off to a good start on your Nemeroth using Abaddon as a base.  What kind of help are you looking for?

I'm not sure about the claw its from a possessed and wondered if anyone had any suggestions for alternatives?

 

Nemeroth has two mutated power claws from the game.

 

So in short some advice on bits that might be suitable as a part of mutated power claws

Slowly getting there now managed to get the base coats done on the havoc's taking longer than i would have liked but starting to get there now for my ETL pledge.

 

Havoc - Basecoated

 

I've also done all the bases for these guys and a tester to see what it looks like.

 

I'm happy overall.

 

Basing

 

 

Managed to also get my Nemeroth converted up and just needing some tentacles which i'm struggling to get right, I also changed the base ever so slightly.

Looking good on the Nemeroth conversion. Are those the Lightning Claws from the new Chaos Terminators kit?

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.

Looking good! Funny how a lightning claw, a new tabard, no cape and a pair of horns can drastically change the tone of a model:) Where will the tentacles go?

Excellent work on that Nemeroth conversion! The pose looks as though the model had been conceived that way -- it also arguably shows off how the Abaddon has such a strong sense of presence, even with much of the clutter gone.

 

I don't want to cajole you into doing anything stupid, especially since Abaddon's facial sculpt is obviously great as is, but have you given some thought to replicating Nemeroths partially mangled face in some shape or form...?

 

In any case, excellent work so far!

They are! I tried loads but these were th only ones that came close!

On the face to try and make the facial features slightly more warped and not nemeroth.

Planning on adding the tentacles onto his face to try and make the face more similar.

I’ve manahed to finish the painting but struggling to upload from my phone tonight so will post tomorrow.

You're a skilled painter.


You sir are too kind. I’ll prove you wrong tomorrow when I add the picture of them finished.

I'm really terrible at faces and since i'm suffering more and more with carpel tunnel i don't think that is going to change anytime soon.

A little jealous of the Nemeroth conversion. I keep looking at Nemeroth artwork every so often to help with Chaos conversions. It’s good to see someone taking it on. He’s looking great so far. How far are you going to go with the homage? Are you going to be sculpting the horn on his head?

The painted minis are looking good.

 

Though, I have one thing to ask: Are they only inspired by the Chosen of Nemeroth or supposed to be based on them? If the latter, the colour is ever-so-slightly off, as they have dark Grey armour, not black.

 

But these guys look good in any case! thumbsup.gif

 

Also: Totally stealing the Lightning Claw idea for the Abaddon Conversion.

Do it! I've done them as a black legion warband rather than their own renegade warband.

Cheers! He doesn't have a horn on the artwork i've used as my reference not until he is part daemon prince, want to do some tubes from his face though.

 

Excellent work.

 

Thanks! you're too kind!

Vow 2 is now done!

 

Chuffed to have completed my first 440ish points of black legion.
