Oblit alternatives?
 
Time to start thinking about Obliterators for my chaos army.

I love the concept behind them, and they are decidedly tzeentchy, warped by the power of change blah blah blah.

However, the actual Oblit mocels are quite frankly, FUGLY!

Current plan is to make double size flamers and have Daemonic entities that throw out malicious power.

Using this as a base.

but changing the heads for Chaos Marine bits, adding some horror arms etc, though I'm not entirely sold on the idea.


Any other ideas from the community as to what I could use?

They look like a great replacement for flamers but not obliterators. I've always liked the idea of using fantasy ogres as the base for some obliterators, maybe give that a go.

Quite a simple conversion on oblits thats i have doen, is use zerker heads or any other CSM head.

It just makes them look 10x better!

I have to agree with that statement, these won't pass for Oblits no matter what you do. My suggestion is to use Chaos Terminators as a base for them. For example:

They look a little like tree-men :)

A friend of mine did oblits as terminator sorcerers. Just take any terminator and add a staff and some dynamic pointing poses. Call them warcasters or battle mages. Fluff wise all thousand sons that had psychic power or potential didn't change to animated suites of armor. These are just the terminators that didn't change, every "weapon" they use is just another spell. Plus its nice to see some thousand sons terminators on the field.

Have you thought about using warjacks?

I know they aren't GW models, so may not be an option - but some of the cryx jacks have a nice tzeentchy feel to them.

Another option I've seen some people do is use oblits as "weapon teams" - two Chaos Marines on a large base, one with a powerfist, the other with a suitable heavy weapon. I'll see if I can dig up a picture of one.

Here we go...something like these:

That just might be the ticket. I might mess a little with the concept, but I really like that.
