    Custom Built Defiler

    Yo,

    Here's a custom Defiler I built back when the Chaos codex first came out. GW didnt release a defiler model for almost a year after the codex was released, so I built this. It's been the center peice of my Iron Warriors for a few years now, its been in hundreds og games, many tournaments, and a few mega battles. Tell me what you think. I am considering cleaning it up and entering it into a Golden Demon competition.

    A few things -

    -Legs are too thin for my liking, to me it looks like one decent shot from a small gun and they'd buckle under the weight of the body
    -Doesnt really look all that daemonic

    Other than that, its a funky little conversion

    Hello welcome to LO. I like this model it is very chaotic and nasty looking. If you want to enter it in GD it will need some touch ups. First I would use some brown ink on different parts of the metal to make it look aged and that it is made of different metal parts.

    You can further add to this effect by shading it very carefully with a detail brush in the areas between the metal joints. I would also suggest some more work on the head. Give the eyes some attention and shade and highlight it more. To get the most out of metal I think it would be good to get a small test model and go to town on doing new things to him and experiment with new techniques.

    I really like it... like RobtheGuru said its not very daemonic, which is GOOD becauses its Iron Warriors and they're not very daemonic at all. I really like the concept though personally I think it needs a lot more chaotic destruction... lots more spikes, more mechanical parts, etc. Still it looks amazing and there's a lot of detail -- I didn't even realize it was made out of a Rhino at first glance! It definately looks like something the Iron Warriors would do, gut a Rhino to use as an armoured shell, attach a bunch of mechanical legs and let it rip...
