Sorry for the multi posts, but hey, it's my log.

This is my entry to the conversion contest running at the moment. Ever since I saw the BA dread and all the bits it comes with I've had the idea of making an equivalent to the FW chaplain dread for my SWs. I really wanted to give it some sort of crozius, and the force weapon fit the bill nicely, if in a slightly different shape. In all there's bits from the BA dread, venerable dread, berzerkers kit, chaos vehicle srue, some wolf pelts from MaxMini, the SW kits, and most importantly, the deathwing kit. I wanted the model to convey the fact this guy has been fighting and defeating the enemies of the allfather for centuries, thus all the totems and trophy racks. He will be used as a venerable dread as opposed to using the FW chaplain dread rules. So, here he is, C&C welcome as always




Note the Deathwing shoulder pad on the trophy rack. I had one in my bits box and couldn't resist.

Oh I love that axe....

Two minor things popped up in my head.
1. The handle is in the way of the flamer when fired.
2. I would also liked to see a bit of sharpness on the top of the axe blades. (Me being all to practical again)

I'd love to see it painted now.


Things I'd like to do better (in no special order):
- Glowing eyes... how cool isn't that?
- Urban basing... There are so many ways to do this cool.
- Freehand texting... It can always get smaller...

Yeah, I only copped that after I put them together, as I did the fist and crozius seperate to the rest of the arm. Ideally I would have seen it earlier and mounted the flamer on the back of the fist, but hindsight and all that... As to the top of the blade, I really didn't want to tinker with the blades too much as I was afraid to mess them up. Besides, there is some spikey goodness there instead.

@Midge, thank you good sir.

@demon bringer, thanks for the rep. I have to say the Army Painting challenge has been a great help with getting stuff done. Instead of brief but intense periods of activity followed by long periods of doing fuck all, I am now getting through the pile of unpainted minis that were staring at me for ages.

This Iron Priest is October's entry in the Painting Challenge, making it the 10th entry and the last one I need to complete the challenge. For some reason I can't put my finger on I'm not quite happy with how he turned out, but he's done.

I know the power cable on the hammer isn't finished in the picture, this has since been fixed.

I see what you mean about him needing something. Mayhap a few highlights on the grey armor plates of the crusher would sort it out.

Maybe. I was thinking today of adding some of the runes from the SW transfer sheet. Shame they don't do them in red, I could have tried some glow effects on them, like they were runes of binding on the jugger. I might try it with a red marker.

Here's the 11th of 12 emtries in the Army Painting Challenge, and finding the time to get any painting done has gotten harder this last month or so, what with overtime kicking in and the discovery that my wife is pregnant. But in all the excitement I got a bit of quiet time this evening, and got this month's Rune Priest done.
