Looking out the window one rainy day, I thought to myself: I just started a Space Wolf army, and yet my ‘Nids still don’t have a suitable commander… Checking up on my list of things to make, I noticed that the Swarmlord was the only one not crossed off, so I set to work.
I kept a few points in mind while creating this thing: 1) He had to be bigger than a Hive Tyrant (or else he’d look silly next to a Trygon), 2) He needed to look scary, and 3) He needed a certain charm to him, that would make my opponent both fear him, and love him at the same time.
So, this is what I conjured up. We used a Trygon as the body, and a Carnifex head as the head. The Bonesabres were created by gluing two 1mm pieces of plasticard together. We used Trygon arms and extended them, then using the cut-off scything talons as the horns on his head. We used copper wire as a frame for the legs and tail, which were then worked on using Apoxie sculpt. Finally, we magnetized all the arms, and even the head, so I can move the pieces around as I please.
Please let me know what you think, and if you need any advice or questions, don’t hesitate to ask
