Hi everybody, it has been a while since I started my mammoth task of creating a heavily converted Renegade Knight army. So, I thought it was about time I showed my WIP images so you can see how exactly they where created, Welcome back to part 4 Khorne Armiger Warglaives.
One of my favorite models over the years are the Crypt Horrors, I have used these for many converting projects, they where also the inspiration for the Khorne Renegade Knight. So as a homage to them, I used the backs of the three Crypt Horrors as inspiration for my daemonic possessed Armiger Warglaives.
First I wanted to have all the legs in different posses, so I cut up each set and re-positioned them
I also included daemonic claws on two out of the three sets.
I used cocktail sticks, spru and guitar strings to create the basic frame.
Then I started to use layers of milliput and green stuff building them up over several days. I choose green stuff on the back bones as I thought they would be fragile if made from Milliput, green stuff has bend-ability :)
I intend to create the weapons and armour similar to Forge World's Gal Vorbaks.
I still think it was a good idea to give each one a back possession conversion, but, I came to a sticking point, what to do with the Heavy Stubber? I thought about putting them between the legs, or under the chin or maybe even on a shoulder mount, in the end I decided to attach the Heavy Stubber underneath the main gun
For this Armiger I thought I would make him a little bit different and use a Blood Thirsters' Greater Axe of Khorne
