I'm planning on converting the new Huron model into my Dark Apostle and i figured i'd ask what you guys think of how i am going about it and also to ask how to get past some hard parts.

So firstly i'm going to use the staff head from the Chaos Terminator Lord sprue as the accursed crozius and swap it with the axe head.

I'm then going to take off his head drill into the body a bit and use the skull style helm from the chaos space marine sprue.

The next part is tricky since i wanna swap his claw/flamer with the plasma pistol arm from the chaos marine sprue, but since the arm is turned so its upside down it may not fit, so i'm guessing i will need to use some green stuff straighten it out. The other thing that may be a problem is the pipes that lead to his backpack. I can't decide whehther to cut these off and file them down and cover it with green stuff or file them down and cover them with the smal tapestry from the chaos lord sprue again.

the only other thing thats worth changing is the bionic on the right side of the body should i fill them in with green stuff or leave them and hope it looks ok?

So tell me what you think :)

Sounds like a lot of work but it should be worth it in the end. I would leave the bionics though as they just add so much to the model.

Agreed with jac and wraith, since your apostle got chunks blown out of him, and so did huron, makes sense that you would keep the bionics, only thing i would add is some scriptures or seals on various places of the apostle

or instead of scriptures, maybe put all the wordy stuff on his armour, looking like its flowing around it, almost alive

Go for it mate, sounds absolutely great. But that might just be my love of word bearers speaking up :wink:

Can't wait to see how this will turn out!

Get back to work on those! :lol:

But yeah i do see alot of people do white scribbly lines on the armor usually shoulders if they dont use scriptures, thinking about doing that on my normal marines as well

Heres how my Dark apostle looks unpainted i had to use my web cam so it looks a bit fuzzy but hope you like it.



I added a metal Word Bearer's Shoulder pad to the right arm and replace the claw/flamer with a plastic plasma pistol arm from the CSM box. I cut the axe blade off the haft and replaced it with the top of the sorcerer staff from the chaos terminator lord box to make the accursed crozius. The head is the skull shaped one from the CSM box and the back pack is the Sergeants to. I may add some spikes and other little bits but not sure right now.

Overall pose looks v good, however, as you imply, there's no focus which would help a lot :wink:

The pose looks great and the mace looks suitably spiky. In fact the whole model looks suitably spiky. Be good to see it when its all finished and some detail pics have been taken.
