'Eavy II

More or less done with this guy!

Shortened the barrel quite a bit - perhaps too much. But it did result in a weapon with a pretty interesting profile.

Filled up the giant boils on his belly as well - I'm going for a slightly more subtle nurgly look with this guy.

  1. Wow this one is so cool! Very nice! I love that you go with a more subtle nurgly touch. The New bolter looks very good too, just right for a heavy guy like him!

    Awesome!

    1. Cheers mate!

      And yes - the stocky barrel sort of fits his stocky physonomy...

  2. Gets more and more badass by the minute. I actually prefer this incarnation of gun barrel.

  3. I'd say you shortened the barrel perfectly, looks great. Where is the fist on the right hand from?

    Cheers

    1. Thanks buddy!

      The hand is cut from a scion powerfist.

  5. Funny how much the shortened barrel enhances the overall feel of the model. I also think that it makes the gun more brutal in its bluntness.

    One thing I'm not a fan of is the helmet actually. I always like seeing the face as it gives a strong focal point and more personality. Though I've said the same on another build of yours so it's old news really..

    Looking forward on seeing some paint on him though

  7. Thanks for the feddback guys!

    @bigboss: I get what you´re saying, but I don´t agree - especially when it comes to villains.
    A lot of minis like chaos warriors, and more recently wracks, get their "personality" from their facelessness. They become creepy and sinister exactly because of their lack of readable features (similarly Darth Vader wouldn´t be half as intimidating if you could see his face)...

    1. Let's agree to disagree on that point :)

  8. Very cool. It's special when you see the same kit being converted all over the world :) Im still waiting for mine to turn into Fenrisian Thralls.

  9. Fantastic looking work! The sense of motion and purpose in the model is perfect!

    I really like how you took the effort to add all the little cables attached to the back of his head. Shortening his heavy weapon turned out greatly too.

  10. I discovered this blog few days ago... Most of what i saw is excellent ! Especially your last creations Jeff.
    This big guy is exactly what i had in mind to obtain plausible nurgle obliterators.

    Can I ask you what kind of bitz is the main part of the gun ? Same question about the strap with ammo ?
    I would not use the same base for the gun but i don't recognize it and i am curious...

    1. Glad you dig the blog, mate!
      I think these would look great as obliterators, although they are rather small compared to the official models. On the other hand the official models look like complete crap...

      The gun is made from a cut down 'eavy shoota from an ork dread while the strap is from the freebootaz.

    2. Smaller, really ? I thought the official ones were just a little bigger than a terminator.

      Orks, of course... It's a shame i don't know the green buddies bitz !
      And excuse me but, what is the freebootaz ?
