Hi has anyone seen that conversion of a juggernaught rearing back in the doc butcha section of the GW website well i'm going to try and recreate that except with one difference the mouth is going to be open, roaring. NOW opinions i am considering cutting along the lower gum line and filing away all the teeth including the large fangs sticking up at the front. the cut will continue along the lower line of the jaw until the lower jaw can be removed repositioned and repinned so it points downwards opening the jaw. The the roof and bottom of the mouth will be covered in a thin layer of green stuff and new teeth will be added and possible a forked tounge. i'm considering whether or not to use the jaw line of a carnifex (nice big teeth) what do people think any suggestions?
The jaws of a Carnifex could work quite well. It will look somewhat more rounded than the Juggernaut normally is but that will probably Just make it more unique.
I would suggest that you try the acid maw mouth. Carefully remove the toxic venom sacks beneath it's lower jaw.
The reason I suggest it is you can convert the massive long tongue into a massive long forked tongue!
It also has acid drool which can easily be painted as blood or whatever you like this will add character.
An alternative you could check out is the Lizardman Carnosaur head. It has big teeth too.
ive never seen a real modelof a juggernaut, only pictures so i dont know its size. Ive seen alot of conversions that used rhinoxes from fantasy though.
The conversion itself seems pretty straight forward the space marines helmet will be replaces with the ahirams he will be given a glaive and the jugger will of cause be roaring
should look good
When you gat the saw in your hand, don't go for the lower jagline, get the upper one at once.
Cut it clean from there then make some teeth from old sprues or whatever sharp pieces of plastic you can find. It only gets better if they are different size and shape, more chaothic if you ask me.
Then you make a roll from GS and press the "unsharp" end of the teeth in. If you make the roll a bit small, you can apply them from the side, that's even better now that I come to think of it.
When you put the teeth on one side ( you better do this one side at a time (a day, with drying in between) you make a even thinner roll of GS, flatten it and apply it at the base of the teeth, then go over the whole (or half as it is) jaw with your sculpting tool, press the GS to look like gums. It's really quite easy.
So, the next day you do the other side, same thing.
tho lower jag is easily made the same way but you might have to do the jaw from GS too.
Remember to let it dry and to use small amounts of GS. Much better to add later then to try to take away. The subtraction of GS will often cause your earlier work to be all messed up.
If I have not expressed in a way you can understand, please PM me and I'll make a photo walkthrough as I'm making something similar myself anyway. (defiler of Nurgle)
EDIT: the second link does not work...
EDIT II: if its's the Berzerker Glaive you are reffering too , he cannot as he is not allowed to mount a steed while wielding it (if memory serves me)
i'll try and fix the link the glaive is not going to be the b glaive (don't worry i've already been rowing on the 40K chaos section about this lol) the teeth are going to be interesting a picture walk through would be great if you could thanks.
