Welcome to my Warpsmithy!

Somewhere during my work with my pure and honourable Eldars the Dark Gods caught my senses and threw me across the warp until I ended up here. Far north in the galactic outback lies this forgotten Dark Mechanicus world where corruption, extacy and disease rule in equal matter. Many are the warbands that come here for the services of the Warpsmiths.

Now my first project is already finished but not to be displayed yet, you'll understand why soon. But lets take a look what lies before my corrupted hands.


These renegade terminators are crippled beyond any Apothecary of the Adeptus Astartes but they have called upon Nurgle to save them and he has heared their pleed. Soon they will walk to battle once more as the servants of Papa Nurgle. I have much moddeling to do here since I only have one arm, but my intent is to make one with PW and bolter/melta, one with HF and CF and one with dual LCs. A banner to give praise to Papa is also on the list.


Here we have five havocs that has found their way and can't wait to be turned into a walking sound system that would make Dolby weep. These depraved renegades loves nothing more than to see their enemies die in an avalanche of pain and torment. Three blasters, one blastmaster and one champion. Now I just have one question, can the champion take a doom siren? I think I red in a tactica that he couldn't but the option is there in Battle Scribe.

Further down the road I also have planes for a squad of possessed. Just dont have the marines yet and don't know to which god I wish to dedicate them. Well, that is that for now from the dark side of my creativity.

Very interesting! The dark gods are very pleased with you, dear disciple. Are you planning on a specific Legion or Warband for your models or?

can the champion take a doom siren
Actually ONLY the Noise Marine Champion may take a Doom siren - Seeing as he cannot take a Noiseblaster or a Blastmaster, that is his unique weapon. However, they have to be Noise Marines for them to take the sonic weaponry - Regular Havocs cannot take these unique weapons.

Great! Then I need to build him one! :victory:

Be sure to note my last sentence that I added as a edit - Havocs cannot take Sonic Weaponry of any kind. Only Noise Marines can do that, which includes Sonicblaster, Blastmaster and Doomsiren.

Haha! I know that, I just thought that this squad of havics would be a easy conversion as the HB are a good size for blasters and I'll convert that laucher to a shoulder mounted blast master. So they will be noice marines all the way when they are finished.

@Nordicus
I never answered your very first question. No, these are all just side projects. I'll be buying worn down, misused second hand models off internet, convert then and sell them on. But who knows, maybe, in time, the lure of Chaos will prove to strong.

Alrighty then! Time for a chaotic update.
I have taken me the time today to go through my bitzbox and sorted out everything I'm gonna use for my two projects. First the Terminurgles.


The champion will stay quite simple, a melta/bolter and a powerweapon. The banner to nurgle will sit above his head aswell and a Bell that will chime praises to nurgle.

Heavy flamer with chainfist. I am not fully finished with if I'm gonna use the tl flamer or the two others and join them to the heavy flamer. The chainswords will be cut of and added to the powerfist. I will also sculp his head to te resemblance of a plague doctor.

Dual lightning claws.

And the Noise Marines.

The champion will have PB and CC and doom siren. The two direcasters will be convertes to one.

Anyone who knows where this helmet come from? I bought 10 off internet. It has the Slaanesh icon on the forehead.

Shoulder mounted Blast Master. This will require some use of plasticard and GS. I'm happy to have the Slaanesh shoulderpads, atleast 2.

And these three heavy bolters will be converted into blasters.

What do you think of this all? I would love some feedback before I do any serious modeling here. Any tips and advice on how I can pull this off? Any big no-nos?

New update from the Warpsmithy!

These are the two lightning claws I'm gonna use. The left is from the Possessed kit, I think, and the right is built by myself using a power fist and some blades from kits I can't even name. I have one blade left, like the thumb blade, but ain't sure if I should add it between the two blades on the fist.

Bolter/Melta

Heavy flamer and chainfist. What do you think people? How does it look to have the heavy flamer mounted like this? I want it to look like his arm has been completly replaced by the Flamer. And the chainfist, are the blades to big? Does it look weird? Or should I cut then off more and making then shorter? Maybe one shorter than the other?

Many questions cause I realy need some feedback on this one!

Mean and nasty looking, good job. I really like the knife hand power fist, but I think it would look a touch better with one more knife finger... two just looks a little too few.

The flamers look pretty hectic, it's a shame you can't take a twin linked heavy flamer to justify such a cool conversion. Chain fistwise, looks very chaos, I think it is fine... although I'd probably give to slaneesh over nurgle.

The head is from the old metal, OOP "Chaos Lord on Steed of Slaanesh" (or as I call it, "Lord on Tittysnake"). Found one myself, a few years back.

That heavy flamer looks cool... but do bear in mind it's only legal to take on the table in a squad of 5 or more Termis, so you'll need 2 more to field them all together.

Nice conversions so far. The chainfist looks good, not too big at all. The heavy flamer model looks like the terminator is slowly turning into an obliterator, which is cool. The knife claw could do with an extra finger though. Keep it up, good work.

I'll add a fourth blade to the LC.

Thanks! I have two more dual LC inbound so the squad will be five strong when I am finished.

Haven't thought of the 'turning oblit' thing myself. But do like it. :) I'll reconsidder the Chainfist once I can dryfit it to the modell.

Yesterday I added a fourth blade to the LC.

I think it gives the LC that last touch that makes it look like something you don't want a handshake from.

More I started on my Noise Marines.

I have removed barrels an ammofed from the Heavy Bolters. I'll GS some new barrels that has more audio look to them and add som wireing that runs from the guns to their backpacks.

I also began with the champion's Doom Siren.

That knife claw is looking extremely brutal - I think it will look excellent when you put it on and paint it up. For the record, I also really like the hazard stripes on the heavy bolter.

Since I plan to sell these minis when I'm done converting I'll ask whoever buys them to mail me a photo of them when they are painted.

This eve saw the beginning of my Blastmaster.



Now this is only dry fitted and much work is still to be done. I'll make much of the barrel thinner and with some workings on the side aswell as some sort of generator at the back and wireing going to the backpack. But for now, who things the barrel is to loooong?
