Hi all, 

 

I'm looking to build myself a new Dark Apostle for my World Eaters - I do like the GW model but am looking to make something unique. I would love to see any Dark Apostles you lot have made up, no matter the legion or warband, for a bit of inspiration!

I used the Aspiring Champion from Shadowspear with the maul from Dark Vengeance as the basis for my Dark Apostle conversion. If I remember I'll take a pic when I get home

I went for a bit of an agnostic look, as my warband are recently turned (in the galactic scheme that is):

I think it's a mix of about five different kits at least? His pistol hand is magnetised too smile.png An Apostle is at the very basic level a maul weapon of some sort, so as long as you tick that off you can pretty much do whatever you want biggrin.png

 

Don't forget to let us know when you build yours thumbsup.gif

Well, mine was mainly just a head swap but I like the aesthetic of a helmed dark apostle so I went with it for Vulgrim. The only pain was doing some filing on the front of his gorget in order to fit the head on.

I mean, he's literally just an unmodified Noise Marine... but I think it's an effective "conversion", or... more like a proxy, I guess? I imagine he bashes people with his guitar and shoots them with the bolt weapon part, rather than actually carrying a Crozius and pistol. I dunno, it was a cool concept, and I guess it worked, because ain't nobody complained yet, and he's sparked a whole Word Bearers army (one CSM squad with Shadowspear's loadout minus one point short of 2k at the moment) so I guess he's done his job.

Started as a "primaris turned into bigger possessed" (Grater possessed did not exist when I started to work on him) but somehow managed to impose himself as a Dark Apostole during conversion.

My DA converted from bits in the new CSM box, the Crozius is just the Maul shaft with the top of one of the backpack icons.

(He's quite blinged out with fancy armour and the other pack icon because in my fluff for my Malal warband a DA doesn't lead the brethren in the worship of Chaos, but is rather a brave individual who willingly does his best to attract the attention of the Powers and draw them away from the rest of the Chapter. He'll be painted as younger than the other characters in the army, as DAs don't tend to live too long!)

I thought I could do a decent OSL effect on the holo-table but I couldn't, so disregard that... :P 

 

My idea was that my Alpha Legion doesn't have a guy shouting profanities during battle, so here's a crappy picture of my Alpha legion Tacticus.

Mnf. I'm a sucker for good fleshy tube effects. I'm seeing Obsidius, the mace out of Dark Vengeance... what else...? What's that head from?

So the head is from the same place as the mace, (used to be cradled in his arm) plus green stuff  thereto make it fit. Then there is a chainmail tabard cut from a shadowspear marine and he will have the master of possessions backpack and a book at his waist taken from the exalted sorcerers kit.

Well, here’s mine from my dark mechanicus themed World Eaters (BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD COG!!). He’s based off of an AoS, um, Bloodsecrator I think it’s called. Power maul, a pistol at his hip in a holster, some mechanicus bits here and there, etc.

Sorry, I’m to old to figure out how to embed photos, so you’ll have to just live with links.

I straight use the dark vengeance guy with the power maul, crudely cut his head off and put a deBunnied skullface world eater helmet (plastic) on his head.

It's okay I suppose.

Thought I'd share my Dark Aposthecary. My renegade warband, The Korven are relatively recently turned and haven't fully embraced the dark gods yet. I didn't feel a preacher fit the theme, so i decided to kitbash this guy as my Dark Apostle. His prayers are combat stims, cooked up by him and his assistants.

Good job on the models and their backstory. Your Dark Apostle's colors remind me of the Death Guard, though. Is this a coincidence, a deception (e.g., the Korven want Mortarion's sons to take the fall for crimes your warband committed), or have the Korven pledged themselves to Nurgle?

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

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.

I'm probably going to just use my christmas Noise Marine as Dark Apostle for my EC, however I'm still waiting for a potential Codex to see if Dark Apostles will still be a thing for them or whether there might be a more fitting HQ that may or may not require some additional conversion work. So for now he's sitting in his box waiting. ^^

So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

Mine was a kitbash / conversion from a Primaris marine, I used quite a few bits from the Terminator Lord sprue as well as the Icon from the new CSM sprue. Can't see it from this angle but he also has a book hanging from a hook on his waist.
