WIP: Chaos Legion Praetor Conversion part 2

I’ve finished building, sculpting and converting my brand new Chaos Legion Praetor. First thing I did was to shorten and slightly reposition the arms and mace. You guys didn’t make it easy for me as I had a hard time deciding from the start. Some of thought that I should keep arms and mace as they were and some of thought that I should shorten them. My gut said shorten them and I just went with it.

And once you start cutting you’re basically past the point of no return and all you can do is push forward. I still think it was the right call, the more compact feel of the model adds to its brutally. Hopefully you dig it too.

Next thing I wanted to do, was to keep the model kind of generic regarding its alignment. Most of the time I pick one of the Dark Gods that I want the model to follow and go all in. Now I went all in regarding its Gift of Mutation instead. Tentacles, tentacles, tentacles. Everywhere tentacles.

I roughed up the cloak a bit, some holes, rough edges and a layer of Liquid Green Stuff to create a more textured and worn surface.

  1. He’s a beast! Great sculpting, this is actually first time I’ve seen liquid green stuff in use… Looks super neat. Is that easy to apply to smooth out cracks and holes in a miniature too?

  2. Cheers!

    Liquid Green Stuff has the consistancy of really thick paint. So you got fairly good control over it when you apply it. I use the plastic sculpting tool in the Citadel Tool box but you could probably use an old paint brush too. I find it easy to use for gap filling. Much easier than normal Green Stuff. But cured Liquid Green Stuff is nowhere near as hard as normal Green Stuff.

  3. I’m getting caught up on posts. I added a comment on your previous WIP so just ignore it. The mace looks a lot better now with what you have done to it.

  4. Nice one – you’ve really got a knack for taking GW’s plastic characters and turning them into Chaos marines. Looking forward to seeing this guy standing shoulder to shoulder with the Khorne lord from AoS.
