Hi fellow bearers of the word.

 

After lurking this forum for quite some time now and drawing a lot of inspiration from the fine armies on display within these pages, I decided to share my own efforts with you. Mind you, I am a quit a slow painter so updates might not be as frequent as I would like them to be. So without (much) further ado I present my progress so far.

 

I will have to take some better pictures as I took these in a bit of hurry when I was stowing the army away today. Most of the stuff is currently still WIP to varius degrees and I will try to update this thread as I move along. Any comments or feedback is clearly very appreciated.

Nice conversions! Is that the Alpha Legion delegates you've used for your chaplain??

Glad you like them! Yes it actually is the Alpha Legion guy. A friend of a friend of mine ended up with two of them after a forge world order mishap and gave him to me. I really like the model except for the original helmet so I decided to convert him.

Hehe, I totaly agree! Although I really like some of the design cues from the forge world model I never grew fond of it as a whole. It always struck me as some sort of staggering monstrosity with as slightly awkward pose. However in my head I imagined a daemon possessed contemptor to be a more powerful and menacing looking built. So I started to collect bits and pieces to create my own version. So far I am quite happy how it's turning out. 😅

So manged to do the arms. The main parts are still held together with blu-tack so that I can still play around with the final pose but I am already realy happy how he is coming together

Glorious!

It's not that I don't like the FW-Mhara, this is just great for variety!

Small update to share my progress on the Mhara Gal. I managed to attach the arms properly and added some details. Currently I have started dry fitting the back of the torso. Might not look like a big change but it now contains a lot less pata-fix and much more greenstuff 😃 (at least on the front.)

Slow progress, but the back is finally finished
(except for a little clean up)

also did a few details on the front, in order to pull everything a little better. Only the top remains to be finished and some scroll work added.

So finaly he is completed! Now he is going to the paint station. To be honest, I really like how he has turned out so far. :) Hope you like him too.
