Finished Warpsmiths Part 1

Sometime after starting here are the first three of the five warpsmiths

Made a few mods to this resin model.

Pretty fiddly to assemble, lots of pins

Couple of the vehicles these characters are maintaining form the backdrop

I like the servo skull concept so wanted to add at least one in

Some great details on the casting to pick out

A few tweaks of my own added in

Then we get into something a bit more raw

Lots of tweaks here

Shoulder pad and other parts out of the bits box

May add some weathering on this character to darken it up in future

Last of Terminator Core

There’s more to come, but this is the last of the core of the Terminator unit

A few individual touches in here

The librarian conversion is one I’ve grown to like

Loves the original chaos terminator storm bolsters. Very narrative.

Skull helmet for a bit of variety

Heavy flamer for effect

More with a stronger Khorne influence

Lot of time for the combi weapon options

These always seemed to look in keeping with an army in various states of daemonic taint

These followed the theme:

More dynamic poses

Mixing up the storm bolters

The last and the Lord

More big suits of power armour

Not a big fan of the medieval knight style helmets to be fair

Terminators again

It’s quite a big part of the company composition

The double chainsword combo always seemed pretty chaotic to me.

Other conversion is a bit more basic

Some more from the squad:

Always found the tusked units a bit wrong, kind of never seemed to look quite right to me

Quite a few auto cannons in the mix

Last ones for this post

It was the model with the skull mask painted up and featured in White Dwarf back in the day that inspired my entire army:

More autocannons… can’t have too many…

Warpsmiths

The 19th Company of the Night Lords has a fair bit of heavy support and armour to keep rolling so I’ve always had a few specialist marines keeping things oiled and to weld stuff back together when it gets trashed. The games moved on with the advent of warpsmiths so I decided to focus on reimagining these characters:

In thinking about these conversions I found that Anvil Industries make a few nice additions in the form of exosuits with various mechanical arms. Here’s what’s heading for paint

Not sure what this marine was but he has a big power axe so that’s a box ticked…

I’ve also got a pretty vanilla Techmarine who has gone renegade and a full on Warpsmith model to add in too.

Siege Leviathans

When the chance to own these pair of Siege Leviathan Dreadnoughts came up I jumped at it. They were part of a larger collection now in the backlog awaiting paint, but these were the first figures I picked up to start painting. Just look at ’em. They’re huge.

I’m going to adorn them with some more chaotic adornments to make them befitting of the Skull Reapers 19th Company theme but I’m going to leave them like this until I have a bit more inspiration.

The arms are magnetised so I can swap in weapons should I decide to. Didn’t come with missile launchers or cables for the siege claws. Suppose I could give Forgeworld a ring about some replacements…
