Decisions decisions...

Carax is nearing completion, but I'm having trouble deciding on his head. What do you guys think?

  1. Personally I think the hood is kick assand the sword is perfect. im thinking the base needs to be something special.

  2. The hooded head does look nice and sinister.

  3. A third vote for the hood here. He's looking fantastic

  4. While I like the look of the hood, I prefer the 'character' of the bald head.

  5. Bald head would be my choice. The hooded head is a little over-used.

  7. The non-hooded head has more character.

  8. I definitely think the non-hooded head looks better. Gives him a seriously sinister appearance! /shivers

  9. Apparently I am behind the times. I don't recognize the bitz used in this? The Breastplate is perhaps from the new "Stormtrooper" kit?

    Also, while I like the hood, I think the bare head is a better look for the rogue inquisitor character.

    1. Yep. Scion torso on top of the plastic sorcerors legs.

  10. Hooded head, but maybe without the resperator cartridges. You could replace them with a hose running to his back, or a set of tusks, or just something different to make it not "that head we have seen 100 times before".

    Some sort of AdMech style servo mandible would be interesting also...

  11. The bare head is both less recognisable, and gives him a somewhat more chaotic air- his mouth covered, or tied shut. I assume, with his sword that he conspires with the Dark Eldar/ eldar?

  12. I would go with the unhooded head. I feel it holds more esoteric and unknowable qualities. While the respirator is cool, I feel it is so often used in conversions that it loses some of its impact. When seeing it, it is hard for me to think of anything but a cultist. Excellent looking model though; I cannot wait to see what you finally decide upon!

  13. Loving that sword conversion. Consider it stolen. ;)

  14. Thanks for all the input guys!

    As some of you have pointed out the cloaked cultist head is a bit overused, so number one it will be.

  15. I prefer the bald head. For an Inquisitor, it think you need to see is eyes.
    Looking forward to the painted model.
    Cheers
