I was torn between posting this in Conversion or Painting, but since I'm more fond of the conversion work than the painting, that's where this ended up. The first few pics are the WIP shots - if you're not interested, skip to the end to see the final result.
The idea was a model that could represent Terminator Armour or Power Armour as I saw fit, as well as being able to switch between Statured and Non-Statured. He's also armed with a CCW and Darkblade and Daemonic Speed.
I left the Pics as links as a kindness to those with low bandwidth connections.
Shots after first painting, but before final conversions done -
Shots of Lord after second step of painting - final conversions finished.

Size Comparison Shot
The size comparison is next to an unpainted Chaos Marine model. He was my first real conversion, and I'm quite happy with how he came out. Comments for improvement?
Wow thats realy awsome. Is that IW or what?
that is one crazy model. great job. i think i may do something like that except for fantasy so if i need any help you may hear from me. once again great work on a amazing model
I like this guy alot, something strikes me with this model, its really excellent, good job!
Is that converted? The base is incredible!
Anyways this goes to say i like the model.
Only thing about him is the slight lack of colour I would have liked a red or green to pop up slightly somewhere!

Ever thought of how cheese was found?:

Wow, that model is incredible. The only thing that I don't like quite as much is that all of the skull cover up so much of the model. They still look stunning though and I love the pose and conversions. It's great(Y)
Good job, it's an excellent looking model (especially for a first real conversion). I agree with Warrior47, the belt of skulls covering up he join between the legs and the torso doesn't quite do it for me. The upper body was already in danger of looking disproportionately small compared to the lower body; I think the excess mass around his gut, rather then his chest, enhances the overall pear shape (which doesn't really scream 'super-human physique' to me).
Then again, this is getting awfully nit-picky. As I said above, it's a great model!

About the skulls -
Yes, that's the part I dislike the most. I was originally going to put a belt of grenades, but I couldn't find any that fit properly and were the right size to cover up that rift where the pieces met. I had other skulls to use, but they were far too small, so I opted for bigger. It does tend to look a bit lopsided, but it's still a better choice than having that joint show.
I suppose if I was better at Green Stuffing I could've molded a real belt for him. Maybe I'll remake the conversion someday and try that.
If you're asking if the base is converted it looks like the base you get with Archaon to me. Upper Torso, cloak are Archaon too. But his small body is seemlessly onto those cool legs, its amazing. (nice to see you didn't use his ridiculously small head either )Originally Posted by mustardknight
Really like the model, looks great and must be quite imposing with the size. May he reap many a head!
