WHFB. Going Retro with Chaos Dwarfs – Part 12.
WiP custom built K’daai Destroyer this week – with the help of a classic candy mascot you won’t believe!
Hi! I`m Tommy from the blog bigbossredskullz and we are making a retro 4th ed miniature based Chaos Dwarfs army!
If you haven’t read all the parts in the article series the index is right after the jump.
There’s a lot of cool versions of destroyers out there, especially since there’s no official model out so people can do their own interpretations.
I originally didn’t plan on making one but I had some bitz and pieces lying that could do the job. Though I wasn’t entirely sure on how I wanted to assemble it before I saw this sketch over on Chaos Dwarf Online.
It was gIL^ that had it as a signature and he graciously allowed me to use it as a basis for my Kdaai Destroyer.
Even if you’re making a custom build its still key to make things easier by finding a good core part or model you can work from. Here’s mine.
|Almost looks like Bane!|
I went with the same style as on the Iron Daemon to tie it all in. If you can remember, that again is based on the monopose warrior hats. Next was adding the shoulder pads and hat/steam vent.
|Not making Bane though|
The greenstuff will be filed and shaved some more. Still need to greenstuff the two holes from the old eyebrows.
That’s it for this week! Next week I’m continuing the build and we’ll see how far I come. In the meantime go check out my two latest battle reports. Orks vs CSM and Stompa & bullies vs Birdies and drop troops.
How about that for a Destroyer! Any good ideas for the rest of the build?
