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.
