Well, I'm starting a World Eaters army to have alongside my Guard and I've taken a good look at what options there are available for a Khorne Lord, in particular the Juggernaught of Khorne upgrade, which basically is a Daemonic steed with some extra goodies to come along. These extra goodies so to speak makes this steed into something else, so a regular daemonic steed shouldn't really work to picture this Juggernaugt.
Now, GW does produce a Juggernaught riding model, the problem is that I think it looks really bad. See for yourselves:
Now, I would much rather use this fantasy battles model, but then again, that doesn't look like much of a Juggernaught to me, more like a regular horse with a spiky helmet.
Now, do you think it would work to use the latter model as my Juggernaught riding lord? If yes, how would you suggest I would do in order to give him an Axe of Khorne and a Bolt pistol?
If you don't like the fantasy lord, how would you suggest I'd go about making a Juggernaught that really fits into the name? I don't have much experience with conversions so I would really appreciate if you could bother going into detail.
go for it looks good. or you can make your own juggernaut.
I'll go out on a wild goose chase here if you don't mind.
You want a big, bad Khorne lord on a big, bad daemonic mount? Have him ride a Defiler. No one's making fun of his goofy hat if he's sitting on a Defiler.
I agree the 40k model looks ugly. However the Fantasy lord looks like a difficult conversion, you'd need to go to town on all that metal with a saw to turn him into a Space Marine.
I'd say order a Chaos Biker for the rider/spikes/parts, and then find a monster you really like. There's lots of choice, a couple I found were:
only one thing:
omg this is the king of badass.

The Thousand Sons and The Ultramarines face eachother on opposite sides of a battlefield.
Bob: Move the troops into those strategic positions to face the chaos scum!
Magnus: *Eyes glow* You want to move the troops into the minefield.
Bob: *Turns to Sergeant* No, move them into the minefield instead.
Magnus: Heh.(\_/)Originally Posted by

As much as I love this idea I think it'll end up a bit big... sure, big would be great, this might be a little to big though. I'd like him to be able to move across the board without knocking down every piece of terrain on his way. I'll look into it though, maybe I can find a way to make it work. Probably not, but I might. :pOriginally Posted by ZanzibarWell, I wasn't really thinking of converting the fantasy lord that much, personally I think his armour could pass of as powerarmour if I gave him the backpack that all CSM wear. I mean, it's the Lord, his armour should look a bit different and more ornate.Originally Posted by Addoran
I did look through GW's fantasy section, but I didn't like any of the beasties there, most of them look to thin to be fit of the name Juggernaught... but then again so does the horse. I guess that would be the best way to go at it. Thanks.Woah and Woah again. That's way out of my league. Very nice work though.Originally Posted by Von Romanoff
Well, I'll take a look at what beasties to use again and if I don't find anything I'll go with the fantasy lord, give him a backpack, a bolt pistol and an axe.
See the problem here is that when you do a conversion, I always think you want it to look like something unique of your own creation. You don't want a WHFB player coming over and saying "Oh, thats my Chaos Lord with a new backpack". But if you think you can get away with it, go for it.Originally Posted by Kaiser
Well, there is also the effort/skill ratio when it comes to conversions. I could put alot of effort into making him look more like a marine, but I doubt I have the skills to do it. Besides, there aren't that many fantasy players in town. None at our club that I know of.Originally Posted by Addoran
I guess what I'm really asking is, would it be acceptable to use that horse as a juggernaught? Else I'll just try and put a marine on some fantasy critter.
Oh, it's perfectly acceptable if you make the Lord a little more CSM.
On the conversion front though, I'm sure you do have the skills to alter him, you just don't know it. All it takes is to get a suitable CSM rider, find a suitable mount you like, order some GS and the parts from mail order. Cut off anything you don't like and GS things where you cut so it looks ok. Whack on some suitable bits from an accessory sprue, paint it in your colour scheme.... and done. Speaking from experience, I find painting my conversions much harder than actually making them.
Hey Kaiser, might that you should try this beastie from the Mordheim range. It looks pretty nasty and even a little Khorney. As for a rider, you could use that Khorne lord or a converted Archaon or any other model that would straddle the thing (make your own from Biker parts as was mentioned earlier).
EDIT: I just found this thing, which looks like a fiercer Juggernaught and is in a pretty cool pose (for the Warhammer Daemonic Legion Khorne Chariot conversion kit).
