This one is still in progress. I started with the idea of having an IW Daemon Prince who sort of burst out of his dreadnought armor, crazy, malicious, and violent.
The chaos dread model though, didn't appear to friendly to a first time converter like me, so I went with a penitent engine one I had hanging around. I also found some chaos terminator bits, some chaos vehicle bits and such, and this is where I stand currently..
First ever real conversion attempt on my part. Any comments, suggestions? I'm still refining it.
I cant comment until there are clearer pictures, but from what i can make out this fella doent look much like he has 'burst' out of his armour..
Sometimes the best defense is a good offense... Wait, what?
Pictures are as good as they're going to get at present unfortunately.
I had to let the 'burst out of armor' thing fall by the way-side for general mechanical monstrousity instead once I realized that the chaos dreads don't benefit from the same plastic nature as the imperial dreads do.
I'm wondering how you made the mental leap from Dread > DP in the first place.
Common Dread conversions include Tanks and Defilers, but not IW Daemon Princes.
Imagine another player's impression upon seeing this (completed) fig.
How will he answer, "What could this model count-as to you?"
I'm pretty sure that, in this case, it'll be "Um, Soulgrinder?".
The answer you want is, "Whoah! Is that an Iron Warriors Prince?".
I don't think you're quite there, yet.
I don't think it should matter what your opponents think or anything like that; if this is how you envision your Iron Warriors DP, then roll with it. Personally, I think the conversion is really shaping up to be a nice one. The only thing that throws me off are the arms, mainly the big weapon, but I think it's a nice conversion nonetheless.
@Playa - have you seen Dan Jones' IW DP? It is very similar to something akin to a Soulgrinder but much meaner looking, but it's still a fantastic DP. I think the Soulgrinder is very much what an Iron Warriors Daemon Prince would look like; Daemon meets machine, so I don't see a problem with this one.
Hey man dont let anyone get you down mate.
For your first ever conversion it good.
takes alot of practice I still learn stuff all the time and Ive been doing it 8years.
People on here just like bringing people down all the time just ignore them.
The only thing I would change maybe is the right arm for summert more smashy.
The feedback is appreciated. For good or ill.
The huge smashy weapon is the PE basic combat arm, I couldn't kitbash anything together from the parts I had that was suitably large and dready enough.
Like I said, the basis model-wise is actually a Penitent Engine, not a chaos dreadnought. Mostly because I couldn't get the chaos dread to do anything except look fire-pluggy, and being made of metal, I couldn't modify it much.
I'm still trying to think of ways to do up the lower segment though, as is it looks almost too 'stock.'
I like it, better pics would help tho.
But i do like the techno deamon idea, consider it stolen!
I AM BOOMER!
A very ambitious first conversion!
Some clearer pictures may help with comments.
Try to ensure the head of the prince is looking forwards, from what I can see hes looking downards.
Cant wait to see more!
Here is Mr Spidy Daemon Prince conversing with Mr Sawry Daemon Prince about the aparant and unacceptable lack of continous endevours to complete the most grandous metal beast that is the Warhound.
Mr Spidy was made from the upper half of the daemon prince model, a brass piping connector, four killer can arms, various additional parts from spures and the blood of three virgins.
Any more questions, please take to PM, I dont want to thread jack.
