+++ Thousand Sons Warpsmith +++
If you follow along with my site you will notice I like my Chaos war machines, so I thought it was about time to make a Thousand Sons Warpsmith. So may I present Warpsmith Ghobhainn.
This model was originally my Iskander Khayon model but I am replacing that with the more heavily detailed Evil Craft one. But I still liked the look of the base model I had created so when I got the Anvil Industries servo harness a plan formed. If you check the link above I originally had a large axe in Khayon’s right hand and since Warpsmiths come with power axes I thought this would be perfect. Sadly despite being able to pose all four arms of the harness I just couldn’t get the axe to work. Which leads to the next picture.
The power wrench axe! This actually came with the kit and I fell in love with the idea of it being a multipurpose weapon tool. I imagine the forges of my Thousand Sons war cabal, The Host of Rememberance, are a dangerous place. No clean garages like those Loyalists.
A couple of pictures of the workings of the servo harness. I added an extra spare vent to tie it back into the bespoke Thousand Sons style. Although now I am looking at the pictures I am wondering should I have painted the skull on it. Hmmm.
I wanted Ghobhainn to have a bit of an unusual looking pistol, so I fell back to Anvil Industries again and grabbed one of those and added a sight from the same range. I think it works in the end.
So what do you think folks? I know traditionally Thousand Sons wouldn’t have Warpsmiths but I like to think Ghobhainn has some latent power. This meant he survived the Rubric and has worked on ever since.
The servo harnes, they call it a mech arm, is over on their site here.
Awesome conversion Rory. Those Anvil parts are wicked and your metals look nice and worn down after a millennia of work.
Cheers Joe, that was exactly the sort of look I was going. 10,000 years in the warp wrestling Hellbrutes, Forgefiends and Defilers? Your gear will look a little dinged up.
I think he looks great. The harness is perfect and the wrench a great idea. It might be unusual for Thousand Sons to have a Warpsmith, but there’s no denying it looks cool.
Thanks chief, I am rather fond of how the paint turned out in the end. I re-did all the blue in the end as well.
Lovely job, great idea with the archeotech pistol and power wrench.
Thanks, I think he will stand out against other Warpsmiths.
Oh I like him!
His antique gold face plate looks really cool and draws the eye to back to the centre of the model.
I haven’t seen the Anvil Industries Harness before, so I’ll be checking that out as I’m short of a Warpsmith.
Lovely model and thanks for sharing.
You are welcome and thanks for the compliment.
