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
I have a fair few chaos space marine terminators from original models through to more recent models. Here they are…
Banner pole uses some carbon fibre rod
Troops, the one on the right is a really early model with a lighter shade of blue.
Plenty of skulls
Not sure what I was thinking with the shoulder pad insignia
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
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…
Heavy flames and autocannon…
Mix of old and new models
These ones are a bit different
Possibly need a few more power weapons
Random teleport beacon thrown in
Couple more for this post
These ones are a bit more Khornate…
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.
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…
