So, my old topic seems to have been archived, not surprising since i haven't updated it in years.
Anyways, due to me getting a real job and my gf living in another city for a while, I've suddenly found myself with spare time and money. Strange new feeling:) I can't think of a better way to kill time and personal finances than getting into 40K again, so here we go! Expect World Eaters, khornate demon engines and maybe some converted Sisters of Battle (real, unfallen ones, believe it or not).
I've started cutting up the plastic contemptor, mostly trying to get rid of the awkward pose. Hathis' thread was a big inspiration for this one. It's mostly reposed for now, and with some AoS bits added. I'm thinking of cutting up a Bloodthirster chestplate to further chaosify it, but i'm a bit reluctant to potentially ruin these pieces. Any ideas for the head are appreciated, I'm thinking of going with one of the MKIII-looking heads from the skull crusher kit.
Some work on the trim and trying to clean up the cuts. The knee looks a bit wonky like this, with the armor plate sticking up. Do you guys think i should continue bulking it up or try to rotate it backward a bit more? This would be so much easier if the plastic contemptor wasn't such a horrible model hehe.
I got the Frenzied Wartribe box mostly for the amazing bits on the wrathmongers but the legs look great IMO and the idea is to use them on terminators. Here are two early WIPs, I'm smoothing the armor plates on the back of the legs a bit, the exoskeleton-like supports will be added. Unfortunately I don't have any terminator bits available at the moment so i'm taking a bit of a lead of faith with these, but i'm thinking (read hoping) they should be good size-wise. It'll be bit of work to get these done, but terminators are among my favorite units so it'll be worthwhile.
And there's this guy, currently competing with the dreadnought about who should get the bloodthirster's chest armor. It was a bit of a hassle to get the horns to fit behind the cables but i like the result! I haven't decided on a face-plate yet, it won't be the skull though since almost every chaos knight goes with that one.
Thanks for looking, c&c is appreciated!
