Our Rage Won’t Die – Part 3

Another Khorne berserker comes roaring out of the warp!

Last week I also showed you the squad’s standard bearer, and called for feedback and advice. The conclusion seemed to be a general cry of “Moah Skullz!” which given that this is a Khorne worshipper was probably to be expected. Specifically the backpack, and the back in general, were seen as being too clean, as though the warping influence of Chaos had concentrated on his front. Here’s the back of the model as it looked a week ago:

And here it is now. Hopefully you’ll feel, as I do, that this is an improvement, if not it’s never too late to explain to me the error of my ways.

Thomas of High Times on the Eastern Fringe also suggested that the space around the neck was too empty and flat and suggested some kind of collar. In the end I greenstuffed part of a chaos star erupting from inside his armour which hopefully does the business of breaking up the flat panel without overtaxing my sculpting skills.

I also added a World Eater’s sigil to his knee, which seemed like a good fit.

Here’s the squad so far ready to reap skulls and spread chaos. As ever if you have any feedback or advice you want to give you know what to do.

    Loving your work, as always.

    Very, very cool. The changes to the back of the icon bearer really chaosify him a lot an improve the model (which I thought looked good to begin with!)

    Lefty here also looks great. Where did you get that particular chainsword from? Is it from the Raptors? I can’t quite make out – do Lefty or the Icon bearer have holstered bolt pistols on them?

    • Wudugast

      Cheers – yeah, I’m much happier with the icon bearer now (and I too was rather pleased with him to begin with!)

      Leftie’s chainsword is from the raptors box. Neither of them has a holstered pistol but now you mention it I might add one, maybe to Leftie. I’m not particularly worried about being WYSIWYG or anything but it might help bring him a little further into the 41st Millennium and away from AoS.

    Another quite little fellow, great job. The chaos star is a great idea, just smooth the transition a bit and you’re golden.

    • Wudugast

      Cheers – yeah, since you mentioned it I just couldn’t escape the idea that the blank space was just too blank. Still needs some touch ups but I think we’re onto a winner.

    Superb new addition mate, and the enhancements to the icon bearer are spot on – nice job dude!

  • imperialrebelork

    I like the movement of the new addition. Well done sir

    • Wudugast

      Cheers muchly mate! Yeah I wanted to make this one a bit more dynamic and aggressive – it wasn’t an easy pose to pull off though, he was definitely the hardest of the three to get right. Glad to hear I managed it 🙂

    Where are the banner and the Khorne icon on the back of the icon bearer from? I’m looking to dedicate a model to Khorne and need some appropriate symbols 🙂

    • Wudugast

      The banner is from the Khorne Skullreapers/Wrathmongers. Not my favourite models to be honest but lots of useful bits. The little icon on the backpack if from the old Forsaken kit (now sadly discontinued) – again the models were pretty terrible but as a source of bits it was second to none.

Speak, damn you!
