Whenever I get in a bit of a modelling funk, usually caused by batch painting or scrubbing the same miniatures a dozen times to get off mold release agent! Ehm. Yes but when I get into a funk I try a small project to get me going again. This time I got out some Betrayal at Calth parts and a packet of pure goodness from Conversion World. You may remember the second one from an interview I had with Christian, the creator and owner late last year. So I started to run through some options, using the nice and chunky shoulders and then menacing helmet.
Hmm all good options. But I wanted something more brutal for the character idea I had forming. A veteran of the Horus Heresy, now seeking out whatever challenges he could find to test himself. Maybe a bit of a Bezerker…
Now that is more the look I am going for. Striding forward, ready to cleave the next fool to step up to him in twain. Actually it might work as an Iron Warriors counts as Kharn The Betrayer… well there is another project started.
They even have hands you can change to grip around the weapon. You just heat them up and pop them into position. Well it is a bit more complicated than that, but just go read the tutorial.
