Default Kabal of the Poisoned Thorn - Grotesques

So I saw the new Finecast grotesques and thier one pose and extortionate price and decided to make my own using IOB rat ogres and bits from the new talos kit here is the first painted one and some pics of the ones waiting to be painted.

and the others

and my favourite I call him J.R. Hartley he will be the abomination with flesh gauntlet.

Very cool! I haven't thought of converting anything for my wracks, but now both of you guys are starting to make me think about doing something for them.

Though Khaninite, you should think about taking eldar and GS -ing sharp stuff on it.
But that won't be cool enough.
I'll let you know if I have any ideas that pop up.

Looking for work....

Very good conversion work there. Looks a lot more like an abomination then the (imo) rather uninspired GW grotesque. +rep

Excellent conversions. They really capture the feel of the Grotesques. Well done.
