Default Kholek Conversion

I was considering a Kholek conversion, with the help of a fellow herasy member, he gave me the idea to use a top of a Mordor troll, for the armor, what should the bottom be?

I'm not sure who Kholek is, but I'm assuming he is a WHF fanatasy character. Is he a dragon ogre?

Dude - check the Painting chaos in 8 weeks thread in my sig First few posts are some WIP pics of my Kholek conversion.

Just for the record, I used a carnosaur for the lower body, you can buy them seperately from GW mail order as well.

Also on the bitz list for me was the two weapons from an Ogre Tyrant, cut up and stuck together to make the hammer. Other than that I've just got a load of sculpting to do still - I really should get my camera out and get that thread updated with some of my more recent progress!

I'm going to hunt you down at the Great devourer and have at look at this army.

So he is a dragon ogre then.

He is that chaos charater Khloek suneater he is a fully armoured dragon ogre shaggoth with a shooting attack which is strength 6 he ispretty awesome. if im right about the character a mordor trolls features will be to small he is a massive monster the fluff says he is taller than city walls. its probaly best to buy the shaggoth model and then model the armour some how green stuff or card it will be hard though

Dude - check the link in my sig. The normal shaggoth model isn't as big as a city wall, so using that still doesn't really keep it to the fluff.

If you'd checked the link in my sig as I said in my last post, you'd see that a carnosaur & mordor troll comes out just a little bit bigger than a normal shaggoth, I decided that was probably best that going silly and making a model which was the size of a medium sized piece of terrain

Whatever option you take, there'll probably still be a load of conversion work to do to add armour and this will be horribly time consuming!

Yeah, pretty much he's the biggest of the Shaggoths still alive and active according to the fluff.

I'll look forward to saying hello at the Great Devourer, although I'm not sure what the quality of painting on my army is going to be, as it's been somewhat of a rush job

I'd start with the Shaggoth model, I think. Rather than actually do any heavy cutting on the thing, I'd just sculpt the armor with green stuff-- it's a big enough model that making some slabs of green stuff shouldn't be too difficult. I'd take the greataxe's axe bit off, and replace it with...something more mace-like. After perusing the last complete catalog of bitz GW put out that was worth a damn, I can't for the life of me find anything worthwhile though. If you can scare up a Chaos Dreadnought hammer arm, the hammer might do the trick, though.
