Default Master of the Forge WIP

Hi all, been asked by a mate of mine to make him a master of the forge.

Going to build him from the bits on the Command Squad Marine set and a Techmarine box set.

Plan is to have interchangeable Servoharness and Conversion Beam so he can field both.

Here are the starter pics, made from a marine tank Techmarine torso (also have the shoulder pad from it) and a fully scratch built head.

Im not convinced about that head im afraid - he looks like a tau fire warrior..

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

erm?

You mean the one on P70 where he has 3 lights built into the top of standard helmet with two normal eyes underneath? I really dont want to derail the start of your topic - but it doesnt look anything like a tau in that picture.

Anyhow, easy way to put it is the Master of the forge has access to the most advanced relics of the chapter and technologie beyond normal marines,

Tau are supposed to be an advanced race with a mastery of technologie.

So in assumption a peice of advanced relic tech could easiely look like tau tech,Plus I have alot of wires to add to the head so its not 100&#37; done.

It kinda looks like a fire warrior head, but I'm going to say, once the rest of him is built, the head will fit right in with the rest of the model.

Your other work has always come out very well, so I expect it to be excellent

Can someone post a copy of the pic for comparison?
