eresy, betrayal, war. Superhuman beings, the genetic sons of the Emperor, who eclipse even the Astartes in their awesomeness. Primarchs!

I've wanted to build some primarchs for a while now, and only recently have I felt that my conversion skills were good enough to do it. I started small (literally) with Alpharius, and once I'd started, it's been hard to stop. I now have 3 more or less completed Primarchs, another 4 which are WIP, and plans for another 3.

Enough rambling, now for pictures:

Alpharius:









Leman Russ:









The head is only temproary. I'm going to replace it with a different one and add more GS hair

Sanguinus:

I've based my Sanguinius on this peice of artwork:



The model:










WIP Lion'el Johnson:










As I said, he's very much WIP. I'm desperatley after the helmet wings from the High Elf Prince for his helmet. I'm also working on Gulliman, Ferrus Mannus and Angron. I'm also planning on making Rogal Dorn, Vulkan and Night Haunter.

I also really want to make Horus, but I have no idea how to true scale a Terminator

very nice, but the torsos of the primarsh except russ seem abit small, not signficantly however. You might want to do some green stuff on them to bulk them up and leman russ's sword doesn't seem right. Iverall they look nice. hope my C&C helps!
thanks

Thanks for the feedback. I am going to use a combination of green stuff and plasticard to fill out the mid-riff. I'm currently waiting for my bits to make Jahagiti Khan.

theres something about sanguiniuss that doesnt look right. i think its the wings, i think to look better, they either need to make it look like he in flight, or be vertical, like in hat pic you posted.

Disagree with John, I think Sanguinis looks awesome.

Only small discrepancy is that I know in the fluff it states that a normal marine is about 7-9 feet tall, whereas the primarch were huge, something like 9-12 feet tall.

Was that so? I always thought that it was Alpharius who was the smallest.

The shield on Sanguinius's chest should be switched over to the other side...I assume it's meant to protect the primary heart, which would be on the left. Whoever made that artwork did a very nice job but forgot that little detail.
Aside from that, great conversions! Proof that you don't need godlike greenstuff skillz to make great models. Rep!

Very nice work so far. As some others have said, I imagine the Primarchs being bigger, though I can see you've done that with a few of them already so you're on the right track!

I'll be interested to see how you work on the others - good luck with the rest of the conversions!

Thanks for the feed back guys! :D

So far I have almost finished Ferrus Mannus and Angron, and I've started work on Jhagiti Khan.

Lion El'Johnson is coming along slowly but surely. I'm currently waiting for his back pack to be sculpted by a friend of mine.

As for size matters, I'm going from a quote in Horus Rising which more or less states that a Primarch in power armour is the same size as a Marine in terminator armour. Some are going to be bigger (Angron, Magnus etc.) and Alpharius is suitably shorter.

I shall post more pics before too long :D
