Landraider Concept Design

Here are some sketches that I have been working on for my second Landraider. I want it to be a main focal point for the army, and to match up in awesomeness with the first.I am thinking of really stressing the demonically possessed idea. I think a Bloodthirster torso would be the right size, but I am also thinking I might want to look at some third party mini's too, in order to give it a little different feel.

For the side sponsons I am thinking of doing demonic arms. A few questions, do you think that it is better to have the lascannons held in a fist, be the hand, or coming out of the wrist? Also what do you think about the demonic chains holding the demon to the Landraider, Good idea or not?

Slaanesh VS. Khorne. Welcome to the Thunderdome!

Well, despite a growing addiction playing League of Legends online, I have managed to get some work done on the Slaanesh demon prince, the quite a bit modeled on the second berzerker squad and a bit done up on my second land raider. Without further adeiu, here are the pics,

First up, excited that he no longer has to walk everywhere like everyone else is the Slaanesh demon prince:

Following the newly winged horror, is the armored bulk of the red destroyer, a WE landraider,

 Not sure yet if the front will be hinged to actually flip up and open, or if I will just make it look like it could, but keep it sealed. I am leaning towards the second option for ease.

Finally, a new squad of bloodthirsty brutes has appeared on the horizen, praise be to the khorne, my the blood never cease flowing,

 Next up is Cap't Hook, don't really wanna shake his hand

 Following the Captain, is the Knight,

 I still need to add some more detail to the glaive, but I think it is turning out nicely.

I also have three more that are almost completed, and will post them and a squad shot once I have all the backpacks made up and put on. And finally, a recent accrual of some FLGS$ saw me get a box of CSM and the Son's of R'lyeh have returned to my workbench.

Here is the beginings of the Standard bearer:

Not Quite sure about the head yet, I may redo it. I am also going to add a banner type piece under neath the squid head for the banner.

Finally, I have a question to pose to everyone, I am thinking about redoing the horns of the Slaanesh demon prince to be something like this:

Basically making them into a symbol of slaanesh. The question is do you think it would look good? If I do this, then he will probably get quite a few more Slaanesh symbols which I have avoided putting on him thus far in trying to keep in nondenominational. Seeing as how I am planning on selling this piece, do you guys think it would be good to dedicate him to slaanesh (it is the best prince gamewise), or would it be better to leave him more neutral?

Until Next time, when I will have some concept sketches of landraiders to show, I am out!

Trolly train of Khorne and Slaanesh Ape Demon WIP's

So here are a few updates of some of the stuff I have been working on,

First up is the World Eaters Landraider, some of you may remember it from the WIP pics that I have posted Before. It is finally getting some paint,

Btw, this is my first model that I really did with an airbrush (the red), and I must say that even with a crappy airfed single action, it is AWESOME. As far as painting red on large flat surfaces this was definately the coolest idea ever.

Next up is the Slaanesh demon prince that I originally posted up  Here.

A little bit more work has been done on him, added arms and reposed some stuff. I thought the old pose was boring, so I tried to make it more dynamic.

What you guys think?
