hi, I'm soon starting a new Iron warriors army and its going to be based around the page in the codex,
you know make extensive use of obliterators and stolen tanks, but I also want to make from scratch their primarch (hes a daemon prince) to lead them.
obviously since hes a primarch I need to make him look extreemly unique.
so can anyone think of any body parts ect....
thanks for the help.
look in the inquisitor range, there is alot of pieces in there that are the right scale. if he is the primarch then he will have to have +1T +1W to show hes well ard. what weapons you giving him? possibly use bits from the LOTR balrog, head is ok, i always wanted to use the flaming sword? i guess he'll have bionics, there are some good arms in the inq range, possibly tyrus's arms. i think a shield would look good with a Dreadaxe. but you would have took scratch build it, but with a big iron warriors symbol on it and big bullet holes in it. im getting excted about it to now!!! good luck.

Don't go and name your DP Perturabo, it's not original plus a normal deamon prince coud never have the stats of a deamon primarch
Well I did say I want to make the primarch, Have you ever seen it?
I supose if I gave him practicaly everything, eg strength, wounds, toughness attacks.
but that might be to many points.
is their a gun that will fit onto a daemon prince or should I stick with a pure cc prince.
I dont have the codex with me right now but isn't their a daemon gift that allows fire to be launched at the opponent?
please keep the ideas coming, thanks
Best IW Daemon Prince I have ever seen was from a Golden Daemon i believe. Was a converted Defiler that was made to be upright rather than an walking tank... will have to see if i can find some piccies.
I would imagine Perturabo to be a lot more machine than fleshy daemon, but yeah, as somone said - its not original by any sence of the imagination
ok then i'll just make a normal dp,
so then how can I make an original iw daemon prince????
that depends wether you want him more flesh or more machine, there are good parts in the inquisito range, also greenstuff will he and keep any spare parts that look mechanical.
i went to Games day 2004 in the UK, the DP Knape97 is descrbing sounds very like one i played with on a participation game. it was held by Warhammer world Nottignham (my local store hehehe) and it had a defiller leg thing so it looked like a spider, it had jet pack things made from a ork figther bomber, there was a dark blade and a kai gun for its weapons (i know this is not legal but they did say he was special!!!)
you would be best making a normal DP as making Petrubo will be a bit dodgy, if some perffetic Space marine lord comes up and kills him all your IW will be upset and will cry while when you have a normal DP they wont care. HOHOHO
What Iron Warrior wouldn't care about losing an incredibly powerful ally and leader?
Back on topic i've always thought using the huge claw off a defiler would be a cool replacement for a normal arm!
I saw that Defiler in White Dwarf I think, but I didn't think that was a Daemon Prince!

It was a Defiler, done by Sam Cornell. It wone the gold for 40k Large Model in the Australian Golden Daemon 2003 (AUSWD 291).
Lovely model too.
Greetings from Planet X, I hope you enjoy your day.
