I'm painting up my new Chaos lord on Juggernaut (see spoilers) and i was thinking is a Juggernaut more of a machien or a beast. Both fluff wise and modal wise...so i felt i would ask you guys to help dictate somewhat how i paint him up. Vote in the above voting box. Voting will close in 3 days time and the most votes will tell me how to paint him.

Fluff wise jugggers are machines with the spirit of a daemon. Therefore I picked both but it is more machine in frame and appearance so it is a bit more machine.

A machine. Once it is built it is animated with warp energy, molten brass for blood and a really bad attitude. However, once it is brought to life, it acts, and reacts, like a beast.

Purely daemonic would be my answer...

As pointed out, they're a demonically possessed machine. They're built like beasts and given life by the demonic souls... soo, defiantely machine, but with a touch of beast.

i'm not sure where people have got the idea that the Juggernaut is a possessed machine from. it is a construct of pure warp energy, just like any other daemon. there are no real mechanical parts, absolutely none of it originates in the real world. it isn't possessed, its wholly daemon. its just that rather than appearing like a fleshy thing (which is equally as alien to the deamon) it appears at a machine.

so it is neither beast nor machine. but you might just be able to stretch the definition of beast to include a daemonic being, in which case it would still not be a machine. it just looks like one.

as dick said. its daemonic incarnate. though the design of it is definitly Far more machine then beast, it does have some beastial traits to how it moves and parts of it that look fleshier.

Beast, but paint him like everyone else does, with metal wires and the... eesh! Can't seem to come up with the word... eh... Stuff? in metal, glowing eyes and the shell in your primary colour(s) and the trim in your trim colour(s).
