    World Eaters : Cannon of Khorne

    Hey! The Cannons of Khorne are one of the most hideous engines of destruction created for the Blood God Khorne by the Chaos Squats. Huge carriages of blackened steel ornated with brounze skulls, Cannon mount a single heavy tube banded with brass and steel flaring towards a gigantic gaping muzzle. Cannon of Khorne rumble into battle driven by great pressure engines which push them forward on creaking wheels. The charge a Cannon of Khorne fire is dawn from energies of warp space, directed as a skrieking meteor of flame which melt flesh from bone and burns bone to ash. It take a considerable time for a Cannon of Khorne to build up energy to fire. As it does so hellish glow grow in its maw and deep rumble issue from within.



    This Epic Chaos engine was bring to 28mm scale by the Armorcast studio during the 90's. My only reproach is the Khorne runes design on the sides and the lack of small details. So I remove the runes with a dremel and replaced them by huge naive skulls inspired by those from the rear side of the Lord of Battle. Also added some giant nails and chains.ails and chains.

    1. Wow, I'm totally speechless. The improvement of the original model is fantastic by itself, but your personal painting style takes this piece to another level. I'm in awe.

      1. Thank you Suber, it wasn't an easy challenge but I'm glad with what it came out of the process :)

    2. Super beau comme toujours. la transformation des runes en crânes lui donne un air bien plus morbide et moins chargée finalement, très chouette idée!

      le chaudron de sang arrive ? ;)

      1. Merci Mec, je pense que le Chaudron c'est Mission Impossible ;) On peut rien faire pour lui. Du coup, je vais passer sur un autre projet pour me changer les idées :)

    3. Your upgrades are seamless and a lovely improvement. I definitely like how the face pointing to the sky turned out. One can imagine it grumbling and getting angry/agitated as the energies accumulate for a shot.

      1. If we take in consideration the weight of the model!... You probably suffered a lot :)

    5. Super cool cannon, enriched by you with the addition of details that improve its appearance and harmonize it with the other infernal machines of the World Eaters.
      We'd say it's great for Warhammer fantasy too: it immediately reminded us of the cannon that chaos champion Justine drags into the Reikwald forest to tear down the walls of Flensburg (W. King, "Blood and Darkness").
      Also in this case can it be thought that it is not a mere engine, but that in some way it is pervaded by a magical/demonic power?
      Now you need a gun crew to make it work ...

      1. Thank you Rodor, here we are in front of an issue that we will never be able to solve. The Cannon of Khorne need a crew or not? It's supported by a magical energy, yes or No? That's part of the mystery :)

    7. Je ne peux que saluer ton obstination. Parce que bon, ça me semble plutôt ingrat, comme pièce à peindre... Hâte de lire et voir ton prochain projet !

      1. Merci Jaeckel, en effet le terme est bien choisi, cette fig est ingrate. Je l'ai ajouté à la collec sur tout pour le bout d'histoire qu'elle représente. A+
