Thrown together from bits I had laying around as a sort of proof of concept for a new raptor design. I have 4 more bodies and a couple chest pieces I could try. They're not the same MK8, but they're close..

Those terminator claws aren't staying. Going to use Space Wolf Lightning Claws for this guy actually.

So in looking for unique hand weapons for my possible Khorne Berserkers and better done raptors, I found these:

Daemon Sword
Daemon Sword 2
Chaos Knight Weapons

I might use the Daemon Swords for the Raptors and the Knight weapons for the Berserkers. I also found some other cool things to use:
Champion Horned Head (For the normal Berserkers)
Chaos Terminator Lord Head (Skull Champion is the Berserker Leader)

Basically, you just want this looking as much as possible like a Motorhead album cover.

Hm.. I think I'll pass. I only need one actual set of pieces from the Khorne Berserker box (Bolt pistol arms) to make my Khorne Berserkers. And I need them in such numbers it's not really viable to ask others. Thanks for the offer, though!

My current concern is how the Chaos Knight Weapons and Daemon swords are going to fit a shoulder pad. Probably fixable with creative scalpel work, in any case.

Weapon holding arms for obliterator count-as, I have this idea in mind:

First, I want to list for the unaware, all the weapons an Obliterator has available:
Lascannon
Multi-melta
Plasma Cannon
Twin-Linked Plasma gun
Twin-linked Melta gun
Twin-Linked Flamer
Powerfist

Obviously I can't represent all of these in their very specific forms, but I want to give the impression these are Chaos weapon masters of some kind.

The base terminators themselves would be running with a power fist on the left arm and a Combi-melta on the left arm. These come with the Terminator Lord kits.

Plasma Cannon (Maybe with a Chaos Plasma gun on the same arm next to it) coming over the shoulders or coming from the sides of the torso.
Lascannon same as above.
Flamer under the power fist on the left arm, or attached to the top of it.* (Once I actually see the model I might go with something smaller like a hand flamer. )
Plasma pistol attached to the combi-melta on the right arm in some way

Possibilities for mounting the Plasma cannon and Lascannons: With the blades removed from Tyranid Warrior arms and them attached? Greenstuff a slightly more organic attachment? This just strikes me as a bit of a stretch and I need something more mechanical, but nothing is coming to mind at all. TIME TO CHECK THE TOY STORE FOR SOMETHING I CAN BUTCHER.

Edit: I browsed cool mini or not and found this and this but neither have the exact look I'm looking for. Hmm.

Serious dedication to how your models look.  You must be breathing money onto these things.  Any luck figuring out what you wanted to do with the mismatching front/back bodies?

The look of them is everything to me. I want to create something that is truly unique in design and feel. As far as money? I haven't spent anything yet since I bought the Daemon prince. This is all just planning and planning to make sure I get exactly what I need in the numbers I need to make them look how I want. In the end however, I'd like to have a flexible, well-rounded army to field that keeps this consistent look and feel.

As far as the armor colors go? I'm going to paint one of each and see what looks better. One with the white back and one with a blue back. I will probably go with blue on both sides, however. My concern is that it will look something like a dress instead of a robe if I do that, but I suppose it'll still look plenty sorcerous, looking at this for an example: Sorcerer

Bits order came in. Took a bit to properly sort and make sure it was all there, but they're all clipped and bagged and ready to be used when I get the rest of the parts/units over the next couple of days.

small problem: Dark Souls comes out tomorrow. I probably won't get this stuff done for a while, yet.

Raptor Aspiring Champion proper:



Note: Going through so many different bits has show me the different generations of plastics that GW has used gives a very interesting picture of the degradation of their quality and material. Some of the older, lighter plastic had no flashing or bad cuts at all. The more recent, darker plastic had so much to clean off it was ridiculous.

Is that the 'finecast' stuff you're referring to?

No, I mean this:



The one on the far right probably needs to be in the middle actually. But you get the idea

Turned the head of the raptor. Now included: Terminator lord (Not sure about the arms/shoulders yet) and my "Khorne" Berzerker skull champion.

Rank and File Raptor and Berzerker. I have to greenstuff the necks of the 'zerkers, because the head is too large to fit behind the high collar.

Building the Rhinos. I'll have pictures later. But I just thought I'd mention that putting together Imperial vehicles is a bitch. They're incredibly angular and boxy and it's hard to get it to look perfect because if you mess up one angle by a degree, the whole thing is thrown off and it looks tacky.
