Doing the mighty Angron was such a fun that I just needed to go on with doing the daemon primarchs. Next one on my list is the Primarch of the Thousand Sons
chapter, Magnus the Red. The basic model is the Scarab Lord from Top Miniatures, which is actually Magnus the Red before he turned to chaos and became a daemon prince. I just had to
"demonized" him a bit, practincing further sculpt techniques :
- added wings, of course, these are from Abyst from Reaper miniatures (not fully shown yet ;) )
- added backpack from 40k daemon + dragon head exhausts
- added horns on shoulders, head, feet, elbows
- added cables on both arms (3 on arm with weapon, 2 on other)
- added Tzeentch rune and tabard fromLord of Change + real chain
- added book on his right side (from terminator Librarian)
- sculpted demon heads on both legs
- sculpted souls in cape and head, to make a kind of "cloak of souls"
- added chaotic arrows on legs (plasticard)
- added Tzeentch rune on halberd + power unit
- added skull & spike at the end of halberd
For better views, as usual check into the gallery : 1, 2, 3, 4.
Inspiration came from the excellent Horus Heresy artbook (Black Library), from the standard daemon prince, and of course from my twisted mind too :)
When I was kid, Reideen was my favourite super robot. We didn't get the show on tv in Belgium but I got a little chogokin of it among other robots, and it's been my favourite for a long time. So when I saw on the Robot-Japan forums that a newer version had been released, I decided that I needed it. It's the God Reideen DX, black version, made by Bandai. And as usual now, I had the chance to get it at an awesome 5000 yen+shipping new in box thanks to my japanese friend Masayuki.
Here's this new old fellow :)
And from side :
He's 21 cm tall, has lot of diecast (whole body + legs), the additionnal weapons of Reideen (bow and shield/sword), both can be opened or hidden. He also transforms in bird mode. I especially appreciate the articulated hands, even the index is movable separately from the other fingers ! Sweeeeeeet !
Today I want to introduce you to another kind one nightmare "miniature" : our young cat. She's called Blues, a lovely Maine Coone, blue silver & white, 5 months old and already more than 3 kg. The size of an adult cat with the awkwardness and the energy of a kitten. Imagine the mess she can do in a shelf full of figures :)
That's why my office is now a restricted area for her...
After two weeks of intensive painting work, I managed yo invoke the Uber-fiend... One of the most powerfull beings of the whole Warhammer 40k universe is back from the Warp...
ANGRON, the mighty primarch of the World Eaters legion, Prince of Blood !
I'm happy of how this project went, and from the fact that he looks exactly how I wanted it. I think that I have now, at last, a nice daemon prince of Khorne. I believe it's my best daemon prince so far. After my WIP article, i added green stuff spikes behind the head, additionnal chains on wings and a real chain as belt.
