Goatboy here on another lovely Monday morning to talk about my real 40K love – converting!
Instead of some nonsense about a new army lists that might get gutted when 6.5/7th/End of the World edition comes out I will pull back and look at what I like about this hobby. The ability to make something that is supposed to be a good guy into an evil looking bastiche! So with that in mind let’s delve into my future Hobby plans for myself.
I really like the new Imperial Knight kit. Heck I still like the idea of me making more of them after machining through 3 of the kits for a client. This lead me to think of a way to create 4 versions that each fit a different Chaos God. I have gotten one so far done and that’s what today’s foray into the goat brain is all about.
The idea is I wanted to have a corrupted house that the original “King” had 4 different sons with different concubines. From there I started to think what each “house” would represent and how to best get my evil Chaos Knight created. The first one I wanted to do was start with the Slaanesh one as I have lately been on a kick painting purple, pink, and loving the painful caress of She who Thirsts.
Kraven the Bold is this lord’s name. I imagined him to be a showman that got hurt and thus had to have his knight outfitted with growths and connections that would amplify the pain he felt and caused. Slaanesh found this lord wanting and easily corrupted him to whims of Chaos. He is known to lead his brothers into battle with the same grace he had as a fencer but replaced with the brutal destruction afforded to him with his Knight body.
