Scratchbuilt Iron Daemon to fit my 4th ed miniatures right here!
Hi! I`m Tommy from the little known blog bigbossredskullz and we are making a retro 4th ed miniature based Chaos Dwarfs army!
You can see the start of the undercarriage as well. I now dry fitted it just to see that it all was in order so far.
I now checked my Ork bitz and found some choice bits. The hooks are from the CSM vehicle sprues though I think.
Then it was over to prepare the base and glue it all in place before I continue the build.
I have no idea what the drivers cabin and boiler room is called. Nonetheless, here’s the start with the oven and coal bucket.
Added a second floor.
Finished the main build, looks like this. Got a good handful of fun details in.
|Pimp tall hat!|
|See the handles for firing the steam cannonade?|
Far north of the hot ashen wastes of the Dark Lands, between the cold snowy peaks of The Mountains of Mourn lies an old Dawi Zharr fortress known only as Frozen Fang. A tall spike amidst mountain tops made from stone, iron and ice.
Only acccesable through a long dark tunnel carved in rock and melted in ice by the loss of life and blood from thousands of slaves. In the infinite darkness of the tunnel, there is always the sound of roaring thunder, for here reigns a demonic engine named The Last Bull.
A gigantic Iron Demon built by the Lord Prophet of the Fang himself. The Last Bull is driven – or rather kept in control – only by his most trusted Hellsmith engineer.
The Iron Demon and it’s crew are tasked with keeping the tunnel free of ice, by breaking the walls with sheer force of mass and transporting scores of captured savage mountain orc slaves to an outpost on the Plain of Zharr.
The Last Bull is named after the Lord Prophets first Taurus Brimstone. The Great Tauruses of the warm ashen wastes cannot sustain themselves in the cold blizzards of the mountains. Rather than letting his trusted mount free, the lord prophet saved the burning essence of his Taurus before it diminished.
With unholy enchantments and rituals used normally for the binding of daemons, the Prophet was able to bind the fiery soul of Brimstone to the machinery of his enormous Iron Daemon.
But never has The Lord Prophet forgiven the council of Zharr-Naggrund for tasking him with ruling The Frozen Fang, he is forever blaiming them for the freezing death of his Great Taurus Brimestone.
Such is the rage encaged in the iron sarcophagus, that in times of war, the Lord Porphet and his master Hellsmith will derail the Iron Demon and The Last Bull will follow it’s master to war and slaughter once again.
