Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've made a few prototype Barghesi's which i thought i would pass by some others before i started on a full army. They each have a different "head", could u guys tell me which one you think looks better, personally, i think the 1st one is kind of rubbish. I'd also just like to know what people think of my conversions
Also, this is the 1st time I've done something like this, so if you could give some tips and hints that would be great Thanks
The 1st try has a Genestealer head on it, while the second one has a spinefist head.
Please give opinions

Pics are way blurry, hard to make out the detail.
They look like genestealers with space marine arms to me...
From what i can see, the second model looks better than the first but as DMC said the pics are a bit blurred. Nice idea though.
Jager bombs. Very efficient at wiping out friend or foe.
I actually like the spinefist head. Painted could end up being really cool. Maybe you could glue two spinefists together, to give the head a little more thickness, and just do a little gap-filling with green stuff. And then I can imagine eyes could be painted in pretty naturally in the upper crevices. I'd explore that and probably do quite a few different heads in your army.
This may be a stupid question but what is a barghesi?
. On lexicanum it says this:
"According to Imperial Records, the Iron Lords Space Marines Chapter proved instrumental in confining the Barghesi to the Grendl Stars, and also in preventing the destructive biological potential of the Barghesi from being harvested by Hive Fleet Kraken."
They are commenly know to have been created by khorne, or had Khorne alter their evolution to fit his needs, they were foremost of his armies in the mortal realm, but after the horus heresy, the chaos space marines took that role.
I'll also look into the 2 spinefists put together for the head.

Sounds like fan-fiction to me, can't find any source on it.
Fair enough, but I'm going to stick with it, as i like Khorne, he is my favorite chaos god along side Tzeentch.
Ive had an idea today of what to make of my already made Barghesi, made from Genestealer bodies. I will make them into Nob equivalents, then i will make some more Barghesi from Crypt Ghoul Bodies, to be used as Ork Boys. For the Warboss i was thinking using a Tyranid Warrior body, as they are about the same size i think as Ork warbosses and they are bigger than the genestealers and the Ghouls. What u guys think?
I also forgot to mention i am planning on using them as Orks in normal battles, and maybe trying to make a codex for them for Apocalypse fights.
Please give your opinions, thanks
