Lord Sarpedon
I was thinking of making a sarpedon model (chapter master of the soul drinkers for those who dont know who he is) but i have no i dea where to start. any ideas would be appreciated.

dude i like the idea as a huge souldrinker fan my self but its how you seen him that counts

I would use a Shelob from the lord of the rings range and work up from there mate, that would be your best bet, cant wait too see him if you do him Sarpedon is by far one of my characters. JD

Well to give you an idea this is my Sarpedon.


What do you think?

he had some legs cut off too after fighting vehmeth and the plague daemons I've seen people use soul grinder legs but it's tough.. he didn't get turned too much into a spider, just had some chitinous legs mutated on...

mr no name13 02-21-09 02:04 PM

thanks for the ideas ill get onto making him and post some pics when im done. I like the idea of using shelob but he was only given legs not an entire spider body...

I think he would look way cooler that way than just modelling him with 8 arms, a guy on heresy has done a Sarpedon model from a Shelob and it looked cool as hell https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...8&d=1218594864

There are some robot models, not in the 40k range unfortunately, that have several legs coming out of a round body, more like a humanesque shape than a spider centaur thingy(althought very good conversion :biggrin:)

Maybe try pigiron, necromunda stuff and the odd inquisitor bit.... might find something..... Then if they seem to robotic just bulk them up with GS....

Cyphereclipse i hope u dont mind if i use your idea but one thing that i do need to know is how did u cut the libraians legs of because ihave the model and have no idea how to do it...

Held it in a vice and sawed below the belt line. You will need to do some green stuff work to smooth everything out. It wasn't hard to do while vice gripped.

If you need any help with it just ask i'm happy to help.
