I'm looking at making a Khorne lord of battles for my 40k apocalypse army (a mix of chaos space marines and daemons). I've got a neat idea for the head of the model, but i'm having a little difficulty with figuring out how I'm going to make it. My biggest problem right now is figuring out what to use/sculpt for the head of the titan-sized daemonic machine.
My first idea is to attempt something like a Cyberdemon from the various Doom games. to do that though i'll need to make some pretty big horns. The normal way I make tusks and horns may not work (florists wire to make the skeleton then build up putty around it) as these things are pretty hefty. Does anyone have a better solution?
Failing sculpting it, does anyone have any alternative suggestions on what I could use for the creature's head?
The Khorne Lord of battles is a large, Titan sized War machine...kids, eh, can't remember the old Epic :-)
Have you tried looking at toy robotic cats/dogs/creatures? Maybe a zoid model? it would have to be quite a large head. The alternative would be to scratch build it from paper/card, and then use the plastic tusks from the Lord of the Rings oliphant...
How about the heads from the old or new Lion Zord models?
I'm thinking i'm just going to have to scratch build it. Unlike the old model I really want it to have the look of being daemonically possessed. The upper torso of the thing is going to be made from the upper body of this:
Godzilla MechaGodzilla 12" Action Figure - Bandai - Toys "R" Us
I've also got a few other odds and ends to fill the thing out (i'm discarding the idea of the huge wheels and rear tread, and just using the tracks of a baneblade... i know, that's what every superheavy vehicle conversion uses, but it really does look better i think).
All said and done, this thing is gonna be roughly the same height as a FW warhound titan (give or take a half an inch).
The Lord of Battles probably has to have the tracks from two BB, as it is just vastly bigger...both size and height wise it is larger than a Reaver Titan...
I don't know much, But I'd say it was bigger than any pictured here, and the bigger ones "tower over the warhound".
