Ok, lets get this party started. DreadTober 2016 is officially on (even though it’s still September) and the first of the weekly challenges is to plan and build you entry. Like I’ve mentioned before – I’ll be doing a Betrayal at Calth Chaos Contemptor Helbrute.
I need to do the following conversions:
- Turn it into a Khornate Helbrute – I’ll have to sculpt some Khorne runes and Chaos icons on the Contemptor.
- Change the awkward static pose into a more dynamic running one.
- Head swap (I’ll add one of the heads from the Helbrute kit), battle damage, corruption and a bit of flair (if Kharn got tassels …).
- Decide whether to go with the Multi Melta or use the Plasma Cannon from the Helbrute kit.
I’ve done a fair bit of work already. I cut up the legs, feet and the waist to give myself maximum flexibility. I also sculpted the Khorne rune on its chest. I carved the fancy scroll off and smoothed the piece before cracking out the Green Stuff.
Here’s a few WIP pictures:
That’s it for this time.
