    World Eaters : Champion mounted on Juggernaut

    Hey everyone! Last important piece of the legion, the mounted Juggernaut. and his owner. I postponed the carry-out of this fella for several months, a bit afraid by the task to achieve to reach the target concept I had in mind since the early moment of this project one year ago. The overall outcome is quite good and I’m rather proud to share with you my own version of the Juggernaut of Khorne.

    I made the choice to redesign the whole model due to long list of minor defaults that miniature suffer. The mismatch between the description of the Juggernaut in the Slaves of Darkness book and the metal model release at this moment is huge.

    Actually, the miniature provided by Citadel was far from  my expectations at this period. It’s quite uncommon for the Company and also for Kev Adams for who I have a colossal respect but this model is definitely crappy… Size, posture of the front legs, armored concept, … almost everything. I assume that Kev A. had huge hang-over when he sculpted this Juggernaut, Ican't see anything else :)

    I challenged my self to make a kind of "Justice for the Jugg!" closest to one of the rare illustration in first RoC tome. By giving him a proper size for its massive and unstopable body, also by changing the posture of his front legs and bring-out a more natural posture.
     To finish, by enclosing him into a thick armored carapace engraved by several Skull runes.

    World Eaters : Bloodthirster

    Hey! Today special post dedicated to the most iconic and dreaded servant of the skull god. Models from the original range are rather cool but I wanted to convert my own version with a 40k style. I based my Greater Demon  on a Bloodthirster body, the head come from the Epic Lord of Battle and the wings from the JG Manticore. I added my own touch with the bones armor and the chains. During the process, I removed the whip from the demon right hand but I never found the opportunity to replace it on the model, so that's why I started to imaginated the concept of "the living whip". 

    My Greatrer Demon was rewarded by the Blood God with this  creature which one is  nothing more or less than a demonic Khorne hound with a tail whip.  The Greater Demon keep under control his living whip  by his bronzes ring on the left hand. I built this singular model with an Epic Titan head, a collar of Khorne and a Chimera body.  

    I manage this demonic couple as a single miniature, the lesser Demon didn't exist in terms of models on gaming table. But a would be nice to creat a profil for the living whip :)

    World Eaters : Blood Slaughterer of Khorne

    Hey! New Daemon Machine release from  the Chaos Squats forges, the famous Blood Slaughterer, also named the Doomed model sculpted by Dave Andrews with his left foot. Or more realisticly with his right hand but it's not more glorious... Ok truce of joke for sure you understood, I'm not a huge fan of the first incarnation of this chap and the minimum that I can do for him is to creat my own version. To achieve this task, I sorted out some old chunks of lead from my pile of shame.

    I built this model with a bunch of parts from the Epic range, mostly from the Titan arsenal designed and sculpted by JG. Rear tracks come from the Epic Lord of Battle and I designed the body by my self. The result is quite near to the original chaos wheeled machine pushed by tracks and a notch more agressive

    World Eaters : Land Raider

    Hello everyone! Second and last article regarding heavy support for the legion. The 3D printing stroke again and still as efficiant in termes of overall rendering. The STL file used here was based on a resized Forges World Proteus Model him self based on the MK1 RT Land Raider model. The final product is far more detailed than what I expected and look pretty good. 

    The kit is composed by 70 parts, quite important for 3D printing. Unfortunatly during the printing process some parts was missing, so I made some green stuffs copies to complete the resine kit. I added some World Eaters icons on the side doors. The tracks supplied in the kit wasn't really sexy and I decided to produce my own serie, inspired by those smoother from the RT model.

    World Eaters : Predator Tank

    Hello!! RT vehicules are quite expensive on the second hand market that why I prefered switched to 3D resin market. This is a first try-out and to be honest I'm rather satisfied by the result (vs cost). Okay, some details are missing in comparison with the original model but I'm able to fix this issue with my own hobby skills :) 

    I'm not attract by the warpped Chaos vehicules concept (Spicky & Skully) and I prefer bet on a nice paintjob which highlight the colors of the chapter and some discreet World Eaters icons.

    World Eaters : Terminator squad

    Hey! Something heavy today, a full squadron of dreaded Traitor Terminators. Those veterans are the purest form of Khornate sophistication. Their arriving on the battlefield is synonymous of a great tribute to the Blood God. Relentless, they harvest in opponents ranks tons of Skulls for their God.

    Therminator Marines wandered through the warp alongside their Space Marines brethren. theu continu to fight in ancient terminator units which date from the time of the Heresy, and when they die their armour is often takeover by Champions.

    At the beguining of the WE project, I sweared that it's no question to paint a unit of 8 terminators and then, as usual, I did the opposite :) The bigger drawback with them is they are quite few model in the range. So, I remove the standard Chaos Helmets and swapped them by different Greenstuff own works. Based on GS copy of BloodBowl Chaos players and Epic Warhounds head. Also, I corrupted loyal Marines arms to increase the possible equipement options despite the short range available.

    World Eaters : Attack Bike

    Hello! As much I remember, I never seen any sidecar IRL. The concept of sitting next to the motobike driver is quite strange for me but ok it's fine :) 

    This vehicule is rather unusual for a renegade legion, It's a loot and it became a key element of the Chapter recon platoon. 

    I swapped the loyalist rider by a beaut renegade and I flanked him with a spotter from the Rhino Marines serie. The Chaos back packs they wear give them a bulky look and seems nastier.

    World Eaters : Assault troops

    Hey guys! Third post in one week amazing :) I'm rather proud of those chaps cause I spent a couple of evenings to convert them and I'm quite satisfied of the result. 

    This shock squad wasn't foreseen at the beguining of the project but it was a fine occasion to recycle some old models from my shame box. Most of them are far from the generic WE legionnaire and require a bit of modeling work to fit as assault troops.  Main modifications are based on additionnal Close combat weapons, tiles mutations and by increasing the scifi style especialy for the WHFB Champions.

    World Eaters : Cannon Fodder

    Oi! Time to highlight lesser troops of the legion. Those damned are pressed into service as cannon fodder by the World Eaters and are driven into enemy positions where their ferocity (and their explosive collar that each wear) can be put to good effect.

    Ok, I re used some models I already painted for Whfb a couple of years ago, I hope you forgive me this vileness but I love those models and they fit so nicely with the legion. I can't resist to rebase them :) Added some green stuff to increase the Khornish style.

    World Eaters : Chaos Squats

    Hello every one! First post of the year and still involve in my World Eaters project, today some new Tech support troops. Yep, I consider those Chaos Squats as engineering support to the legion. So, they develop new War Machine but could be used as wealthy Techmarine as well.

    The mercenary RT Squat is in chage to pilot the mechanized Tarantula freshly release from the Dark Forges. Both models are visually linked by the double antennas, simple and efficient.

    This Mechanized tarantula was made-out with tracks from the range of Hitech miniatures (again), green stuff sculpts, RT spare parts and small parts from my DIY box.

    World Eaters : Daemon Prince

    After many years of labour for Khorne, the long awaited moment is arrived for my champion. Indeed, all those years spent to collect skulls for his patron were rewarded by a large amount of gifts and attributes. But the thirst of glory of a Champion can only be satisfy by reaching the Daemonic Prince status. The judgement day is arrived and the fate of my Champion was to succeded in front of the Eye of Gods. I suppose it's a good way to end up the year! 

    I paid attention to reward the Champion by more than 6 gifts : Daemonic (use) Name : Skaladrax the Blight Pus Oozing , Weapons hands, Bloodthirster face, Collar of Khorne, Technology, Chaos armor, Frenzy and some Chaos Attributes as well as Mechanoid Tracks legs and Fangs. The body of the Champion grows taller and more imposing.

    Regarding the modelling aspect, you probably recognise parts from The Epic size Khorne Lord of Battle, Blood Thirster head, tracks from the Imperial Rappier Kit, bDaemonic back pack from classic Citadel range and resine parts from Hitech miniature (Machines). 

    Also, I added some green stuff details and above all, the bin of skulls. This element of the Daemon Prince poped up during the process of modelling. I came across this skulls 25mm base when I started to sorting my bits box, at the finish the result is a bin of skulls. The other function of the bin is to balance the general aspect of the model and give a suitable visual counter-weight at the opposite of the front scythes.
