Default Looted Carnifex birthday present

Ok, so these are the first pictures of anything I've done before being put online so be as gentle as you like with me... (I hope this is the right forum for conversions)

I started this project about November last year, E-Baying the various bits and bobs, did some scetches when I could, writing rules for it and such. I was inspired when some friends were looking at some pictures of looted carnifex's, I really liked them and had seen them before... but my friend who collects Orks hadnt seen them and was getting really excited about them and how wicked they looked. I know he appreciates the work that goes into converstions and stuff... I collect Tyranids, He's got Orks...

So naturally I dived into a project that started 7 months ago and give him his birthday presant today, it was well recieved : ) . I have stressed to my other friends how I do not intend on making a habit of 7 month conversion projects for birthday presants.

The pictures I've got are unpainted so you can (try) to see what I've done. If anyones got any questions or advice on how I could do something in the future, they are welcome to do so.

This looks abosultely AMAZING! Great work. You have amazing moddelling skills and obviously a huge amount of patience (I'm jealous!). Your friend is very lucky. Great job man, I would love to see pictures of it painted if you get the chance. +rep!

Some awesome looting.


I can see why this took you some time to complete.

Your attention to detail is great, it is a shame the attached images are not bigger so that more of your work can be seen.

Cool stuff hope you post more soon ish.

It took me ages just to figure out how to attatch them at all! I'm not used to doing it : ). To be honest I'm not sure the quality of the pictures is that great, and I wasnt sure what size to post them... I'll endevour put some better ones up next time. Well its in the hands of my friend now, he's pretty good at painting so once its done I'll get more pictures up again.

I probably wouldnt have put that much effort into something for anyone else, I know he really appreciates that kinda thing... we're both really into the details, mythology/story behind stuff... I quite enjoyed making it, but the pressure was on as his birthday crept up!

Thanks for the extra rep guys. this is all very new for me : D

Those are the only picturs I have, a friend has some others I think... if anyone wants to see a specific bit more closely, I can try and get a better picture of that from what I have but I dont want ot put MASSIVE repeat pictures up for people to wade through.

Often I dont like something because I feel its not 'fluffy'.


However in this case I simply dont care

Make sure your friend does it justice with the paint job!

To prevent any 'misunderstandings' if I post IN ORANGE then I am joking.
Thank you

Fantastic work.


If someone lacks intelligence, than he is not stupid, because one cannot be stupid without intelligence.

If someone reverts to having to complain about your grammar, then you already won.

I love it. The fact that a Nids player gave it as a gift to an Orks player just makes it 100x more awesome too.
The concept is great, and the execution is even better.
