Hobby Log: Slaughterknight, Part 2

Part 1 is here

I’m back with part 2 of the conversion work on my second Chaos Knight. The goal is to finish this bad boy before October 6th, so it was time to get cracking. After looking at the Forgeworld Knight, I realized there’s very little stopping me from replicating some of the effects on the model trim with green stuff. While I’m not a strong sculptor, the effect looked like something I could manage. I started by cutting out plasticard triangles to add to the trim on the shoulder pads and shin guards.

Once the glue was set on those, I started using green stuff to make the ridged effect. This was pretty straightforward — I started by putting a thin roll of green stuff over the triangle, then used a wet sculpting tool to smear it down and create the ridges.

meh. 8 out of 10.

For the legs, I used defiler plates for the upper thighs, and an Age of Sigmar shield to replace the crotchplate.

Fantasy shields were used to cover the backs of the guns.

Here’s the current status, which, minus a few tiny bells and whistles, is done. I’m pretty happy with the result, and looking forward to priming this asshole. Next update will probably be about halfway through painting him, and I’ll do a final update when he’s done and ready to fuck shit up in our big Apocalypse campaign game.
