Very interesting. Those spikes on the joints, are that from punk /metal gear? Such as leather bracers or jackets?

Could you perhaps take a new photo of the last defiler from a 2/3rds overhead view? I'm not sure if I'm sold on the asymmetry. It can be great if done well.

I am however, partial to the lasher tentacles. I've long had a tech marine helbrute conversion planned, where those same tentacles would sprout from the back as a heinous equivalent of oversized servo arms.

And as usual, your green stuff work is excellent.

They're actually for beadwork; I can't remember what the process was that led to me finding them on eBay, but you can get tons of spikes for peanuts - for example, 3 gets you 600 of the small conical ones I used on the leg joints of the second Defiler. Search on eBay for 'spike bead' and there you go.

I'll try and get another shot taken in a bit to show you how the asymmetry balances; I'm totally anal about this sort of thing, and much staring at blu-tacked bits was done before any gluing happened

Thanks Svart. I'll keep an eye out!

And I see what you mean. There's a ton of those beads for sale.

Svart, I was feeling good about some gs work I did on my leviathan, then I come in here and feel REALLY incompetent. Once again your work is in a class of its own. I think a collaboration between you and blackadder is in order. He can Build you a titan, and you can Nurglify it. Greatest thing ever.

Then @Blackadder can make the martinis.

Here's what I've been working on the last night or two, a Rhino I picked up for peanuts on Ebay which turned out to have much thicker paint on it than the pics had suggested...so I'm adding some tasteful and understated *cough* spikes at the front, replacing the original exhausts (which had been overpainted to the point the detail was killed) with fly-hive type organic exhaust tubules, adding one big damaged headlight to the right front and generally chipping, Dremel-ing and scraping the shit out of it.


Also, the top hatch doors had been as overpainted as the exhausts, so I figured replacing it with a sort of alligator-mouth type affair would be appropriate:


More pics soon...

That is some top-notch greenstuffing there my friend - Can't wait to see it painted!

Looking good man! The exhausts are looking rather like sea-sponges.

I hope you go a bit further with the gator tooth design and extend it to more of the hatch doors. So it covers all of the hatch seem and to give the whole a greater look of organic flexibility.

I'm also digging the asymmetrical headlight arrangement.

I don't want to make it look like a Possessed Rhino; the idea was really just to sculpt some kind of characterful join for the two halves of the hatch, since the previous owner had just killed it with paint, so I'm going to bulk it out a little, but not too much. As for the headlight, well you know I love asymmetry, and stuff like that just allows me to give different vehicles their own character and distinctive visual hook without making them too crazy - Rhinos are after all the most mundane vehicle for Space marines, Chaos or otherwise. Now the Land Raider I have waiting to be converted, on the other hand...:D
