That model is delicious!

The tentacles and cable tubing create a really great fusion for this conversion.

Can't wait to see what becomes of this!

Don't worry, my friend, I'll be sure you get a real good look from up real close. :twisted:

Thanks for the feedback, my friends.

Also on the table is a soul grinder/daemon engine --an ongoing project I've been picking away at for several years now. A few pages back I posted some pics of the beginnings of that piece. Which started with this amazing bit:

Image

which I joined to a Soul Grinder chassis thusly grimly bigly:
Image

From there I worked up the projecting "arms" (antennae?) of the creature. I started with hangar wire and some bitz cut from the Spirit Host model...
Image

Then started weaving in layers of Harrowing...
Image

Meanwhile I also went to work on the Soul Grinder legs, first by paring them down and distressing them...
Image

And then by Harrowing in a lot of greenstuff and so on...
Image

At this point I have this:
Image

and this:
Image

and (one more angle) this:
Image

I still see a few more spots I want to continue working on, but it's getting close, I think.

Let me know what you think. And thanks for looking!

Those ghosty things really work into your green stuff really wonderfully! And that old Chaos head is just perfect.

Thanks Jack!

I've made a little progress on the Dark Adept/Herald. After some hemming and hawing, I decided to jettison much of the Mechanicus apparatus that our protagonist here normally totes on his back. Too busy. And anyway, crowding all that gear on top of him messed with the line of the figure, which otherwise looks wonderfully hunched and crooked.

Plus, I want the Magos to look as much daemonic as he does mechanicus-ical. And in particular, I wanted to convey the idea that his energy, his enginery, leeches its power from eldritch sources, and more particularly from the anguish and agony of daemonic possession. So I worked up this little tableau:
Image

I picture the severed head here as being still very much alive...
Image

... still wracked and wailing, still shrieking helplessly, the coils and cables that bind it to the Magos pulsing wetly as they convert the victim's pain and fear to dark, daemonic power.
Image

Yeah, I think I'm getting somewhere here.

I like your plan and the way this is shaping up.

I love the use of suffering as a power source!

I agree that breaking up the silhouette of the traditional Tech Priest is a good move - and it gives it a unique vibe (while also giving you some choice bits for later conversion).

Thanks guys!

Dark whispers continue to trouble the dreams of those laboring in forges swallowed in warp storms....

Enginery once Imperial, once sacred, continues to succumb to the ruinous entropy gnawing at it, rooting in it, snaring it in harrowing tendrils....
Image


Work on the Soul Grinder conversion proceeds.

The Iron Claw arms supplied out of the Soul Grinder box unbalanced my converted chassis. Dry-fitted, they looked too big, too heavy, too clunky, and they drew too much attention away from the evil-overmind-"head" of the creature. To serve in their stead I Harrowed in a pair of more organic claws sawed off of one of those Nurgle End Times figures (can't remember which one -- sorry).
Image

These gave the creature a crustacean, crab-like composition more proportional, I thought, and better aligned to the overall form and lines I was looking to draw with this model.
Image

Here are a few more angles...
Image

... and from above:
Image

It's getting close, I think. Still a few spots to even out and Harrow up a bit more.
Thanks for looking!

Love the more organic looking claws Fred!

I think the fusion of beast and metal are truly amazing to behold. The dark powers grow happy.

The priests of Mars are not happy, and vow to the Omnissiah to demolish this abomination!

The Harrowing, long dormant, stirs back to life.
The emergence of 8th edition has re-kindled my 40k imagination, and I’ve started in on a spate of new conversion projects. Among them, I’ve been working up a new Tzeench Herald, this one loosely based on an Adeptus Mech Electropriest figure, bashed together with some Tzeenchy whatnot…
Image
On the back of him, I modified the electro-harness, hoping to evoke a kind of Dark Mechanicum aura:
Image
…which, from the other side looks like this:
Image

I know what you’re thinking. Where’s the greenstuff? The tentacles? The Harrow?
Never fear, I took a hand at that, too:
Image
… and from another angle:
Image
… and yet another:
Image
So here you have him:
Image
I have to say, I kind of like the way he's turning out. There's a bit of clean up to do, but he's almost ready for priming.

Also in process somewhere in the recessed shadows of the Harrowing Forge: my takes on a Maulerfiend…. A new Lord of Change concoction…. And a Chaos Knight! Stay tuned. I’ll try to post more reliably over the next few months.
And as always, thanks for looking!

I'm liking this a lot but I really want to see what's happening on this LoC you speak of.
