Is Everyone Eating There Khorne-Flakes?

So it has been awhile since I have posted anything, but have recently gotten back into some more serious modeling with the release of the newest Chaos Codex. I decided to do a conversion that I have wanted to do for awhile, Khornate Obliterators!

I was originally inspired by Warhammer In Progress's nurgle obliterators, and wanted to do something equally unique for my own. It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to do, and finally I decided to move forward on the project when I picked up GSI's tentacle maker.

So here is what I have so far:

"Squad Leader"
The "Leader"

All three together
Full frontal

Side View
Sidish view

Size Comparison
There Huge!

As you can see i decided to go with juggernauts as the main bodies.I wasn't sure at first about using the hoofed feet, but then actually go fairly nicely and don't look too flimsy. I did for sure know that I didn't want to use the juggernaut heads tho, I wanted them to still be Space Marines, just grossly mutated, so I plan on using regular sized heads, which I think might give an awesome impression of armored bulk since they will be soo small. I still need to add a tabard to the  fronts, and convert the arms. Also I am going to try putting a khorne symbol on the chestplate and adding terminator-esque vents to the backs.

Also, with the advent of 6th Edition, I wanted a Skulltaker to play with my demon allies, obviously he was going to be on a juggernaut, but I didn't want to go the traditional routes of having him riding the bucking bronco pose, or just standing next to the juggernaut. Also, I changed him up a bit to fit with my other bloodletters.
Sorry for the poor picture!

It took a lot of cutting and bending to get the cape bent right, but I think it was worth it. Also, his left arm was in the correct position to hold the reigns, but I still wanted him to have a sword, I mean, cmon, he is the skulltaker, he needs a sword. So I switched his sword hand around. Finally, you cant really see it in this picture, but I cast his left leg and used it for his right as well. This was due for 2 reasons, first, the armor on the left leg was cool, and 2, his right leg was tiny comparatively to his left when removed from the original pose.

He is currently still in several pieces for painting, and that is why the pictures are a little poorer and the chain to his hand isn't quite lined up. I am going to try to get some better pics once I have a decent setup for my camera.

What do you think?

  1. Awesome stuff. Have you thought about using Spawn heads. Hell they could even be a corrupt cult of mars version of spawn. Wither way they will look awesome in an army that has the heldrakes, and the maulerfiend kit.
