New Project : Chaos Carnabrute "Cthulhu" Daemon

Publié le 14 Février 2013 par Hellric dans Chaos & Demons

My new Hive Queen is just done so I'm keeping the momentum and I want to show here my new project.

As soon as I saw the new Carnabrute kit from GW, I thought about its conversion potential. I love both versions so I decided to mix them. The Carnabrute head is amazing with its many eyes and horns, but how could I resist to add those tentacles ?

So I came with a kind of Cthulean head. Since a long time I wanted to use the wings of the new manticore kit. So I decided to add them to the model, these will add a grotesque demonic touch to the model ...

And once again, we end with a kind of monster who could be viewed as a representation of the Great Old One himself.

So... here's the monster :




And two more : here and here

Now... let's think about a paint scheme... ideas are welcome since people didn't seem to like te latest hive queen scheme...


Tyranid Hive Fleet Cthulhu - Queen of Thorns painted !

Hi folks,

I'm very happy to show you today a new big project that has come to completion. It's been a while since I painted such a big miniature, and I'm satisfied that I did it quite quickly, motivation is coming back for sure :)

So it was the awesome Queen of Thorns, made by the talented artist Hydra from the Warpshadow forum.

I've tried a variation of my previous themes, wanted an electric green skin, with classical purple armour plates (this is a queen ;) ), I used gloss varnish on some parts like the brain, seed pods, tendrils and tongue, so they look disgustingly wet.

The only things I'm not happy with on this model, are the pictures, I didn't managed to capture the beauty of the beast, I need to improve in this area so much, but this can give you an idea anyway...

OK enough blabber, now the pictures ! I hope you'll enjoy her as much as I ;)
