i made some pictures to show what i've done so far. here we go...
so now i mainly need an idea to make him more dynamic. the jump pack turned out pretty good but he just stands there like a big chunk of metal and that doesn't really fit a daemon prince, i think. so now go crazy and tell me some good ideas how to make him look dynamic and cool. thanks in advance
I reckon some more chaosy details on the jump pack like the pointy star, legion specific stuff. Also, considering it's a Daemon Prince, I think a bit of organic muscle tissue could be spread around on the beast. It looks like you have good sculpting skills and it's not that hard to do. Look at the (yet to be officially released) Soulgrinder for reference: http://i25.tinypic.com/2gufofq.jpg
Hope this helps!
Oh, and I think it looks pretty awesome so far!;Y
thanks, i just think that daemon princes are pretty rare. so i thought a little bit about fluff and had the idea that my warsmith designed this amour for himself to give him daemonprince-like power without having to crawl up some chaos god's behind. so i'd like to avoid flesh-thingy bits. i just have no idea how to make him look more dynamic and agile. like a diffrent pose, or other arms/repositioned arms so that he just doesn't look so clumpsy any more. i thought about a sky-leping pose but i'd find that really hard to do with that old metal model.
Hmm, good work. I would have to say that it still looks too dreadnaught like to me and I really feel that if you are going to convert it to a daemon prince, then it should be readilly aparent that that is what it is instead of a fancy dreadnaught with a jump pack.
How you would go about achieving this I am not too sure. Here's some quick ideas though:
1) Change the position of the head - maybe move it a bit further up and make it a little more ornate.
2) Get a plastic SM dreadnaught kit and start mixing and maching. Extend the legs with parts from the plastic one - making the model taller and allowing a bit more flexibility with the pose. With a bit of cutting and sculpting it is possible to add an 'arm and hand' to the, well arms, of the model. With a bit more chopping and planning it is possible to make it so that the prince is holding a gun in one massive mechanical-esque hand while the other arm is swinging in a mighty hammer or some such.
3) Scrap the DCCW - it's too easily recognisable as what it is. Instead get another plastic SM dreadnought arm and attach it to the joint of the 'shoulder' and model/scratch build a giant hammer or axe or something similarly iron warriory (a great big hammer would look ace) and pose it so that it is swinging dramatically in to smite some poor unfortunate.

I'ld scrap the arms and legs and replace them with those of the inquisitor Artemis model. You'll suddenly have a taller miniature with a more dynamic pose (running) and the arms would look much more usefull. Most importantly it would stop looking like a dreadnought.
(the ultramarine has to go, it's far too distracting.)
Up, up and away!
I would say the marine is an all or nothing type of thing. Smother his legs in marines, or none at all.
the marine dates back to when the model was representing a dreadnought, as well as the painting does. but now i even got a cool base idea to trash some old color- overload marines from my bitz box to make a cool base. i'll have a closer look at the sm plastic dread bitz and determine what some of them would look like. by piling up marines on the base i can give him a more risen pose so that he stands out a little more and looks more impressive. thanks for the ideas so far, and keep it coming please.
Ive seen lots of 'driven' Iron warriors Daemon princes in my time as an iron warrior. Ive got to say this model needs some work to get it looking right. Id check coolminiornot for ideas, i cant supply you any pictures at present as im at work.
Id say, drill out the head and replace is with a more poseable one, change both arms for longer slender'er ones. The legs need to be longer and maybe slightly bulkier (Trying to represent eternal warrior).
One thing to remember is that its just a silver painted marine if it doesnt have any chevrons painted on it!
