Kill! Maim! Burn! - World Eater's Project Log
« on: January 14, 2015, 06:00:09 PM »
Back in to the hobby after 4 years and I managed to pick up some Chaos stuff cheap on ebay, painted a Maulerfiend and a Forgefiend and thought I would share them.

Still got a Helbrute, Heldrake and Chaos Lord to paint after they arrive, and I plan to convert a Brass Scorpion from Defilers and a Blood Slaughterer from a Maulerfiend and a Triarch Stalker. Once all the parts have arrived I will post pictures as the project progresses. After that, some troops - Berserkers, Cultists, Bloodletters. Maybe a few Bloodcrushers, we'll see how long I can be motivated for!




World Eater's Maulerfiend that I will keep for my force. Stupidly it was the first one I painted so it's less practised than the other.




More of a Nightlords scheme going on, this Forgefiend I'm going to sell as it doesn't fit my theme.

Hopefully my second Defiler kit will arrive soon and I can start work on my Brass Scorpion.

Some excellent paintwork there :D Great to see you back, and I look forward to your upcoming project ;)

I'd suggest going over the Maulerfiends muscle, as some sections don't seem to be as defined as others, and the forward claws could do with a little more depth as well amongst all that blood.

Thank you for the CC! Highlighted and re-did the Maulerfiend.

Second defiler kit came so I've started my Brass Scorpion. Here's everything ready to go. (Yes, those are bandsaw marks :P)


Used both front claws to articulate the tail.


Here's everything put together - nothing's glued yet and I still have a long way to go, but it's a start.

Whats your plan for the "Face" of the scorpion?

I've done my share of hacking models apart with saws :P I will say that it looks like you may have cut away a bit too much of the pieces. I've admittedly never built a Defiler, but it looks like a lot has be cut away.

The battlecannon/chest face from the Defiler, might use some blades or Necron pincers to form mandibles.

I cut it so that the distance between the leg sockets of the joined halves is the same as the distance between the leg sockets of the torsos. I wasn't sure about cutting off so much and filling the gap, but I'm going to use plasticard to make a carapace anyway so none of that will be visible!
My concern is the base of the tail because it looks so flimsy at the socket, not sure what I'm going to do for that yet.

If you're going to do a carapace with plasticard, you could cover that area as well. Adding a fee struts of plactic sprue might also help.

The same could be done for the front pinchers shoulders.

Didn't even consider the front claws but now you've said that I can't stop noticing how thin they look :P Hopefully I'll get started on the carapace tomorrow!



So between assessments and infected wisdom teeth I've done less than I'd like but it's still progress. Bloodletters came and I got them painted up. Still need to do a couple of touch ups and also base them.


Started work on the Brass Scorpions carapace.


Assembled a Heldrake


Had an idea for arming a squad of Chosen with the double handed chainsaws from Ork Nobs but I seriously underestimated how massive the Nobs arms are. Got a squad of terminators on the way so I'll see how they look with terminator armour. I've also got 2 rhinos and 30 berserkers on the way as well as a helbrute and and a soul grinder waiting construction.
