My first Chaos Dwarf conversions, a Death rocket, base on the Helstorm Rocket Battery. A pretty simple conversion, but I like it, and I also like fireworks. I’m not sure if Chaos Dwarfs like big rockits or smaller clusters though. Haven’t made crew yet, as I have no dwarfs! Will buy soon, I promise.
I replaced the griffon heads with skulls, for a little “Winged Chaos Beast” look. Will also add details to the wheels. Any thoughts?
Little greenstuff beards would be hilarious! If you’re going for a babylonian look, that would be fun. The gor wheels look great! They look nice and robust.
For the aiming of the unit, I was more thinking a pair of poles that hook to a pack animal of some kind. Overall the weapon looks front-heavy, with the missiles looking much bigger and noticeable than the rest of the machine. A bigger body on the warmachine would make it a little tougher looking, chunkier. Another option may be to make it look totally immobile, or a platform that is carried like a howdah by slaves and then deployed and fired. I’m only offering suggestions, I like how it looks overall but would like to see it look fatter somehow.
Hrm. Maybe even a four wheeled solution, with a smaller set of wheels at the back?
Also, bazookas. I like those! Can’t wait to see what’s in the lab.
Damn it… I couldn’t see the site for hours today (dunno why), so I didn’t see your ideas until after the machine was undercoated.
I think it would look good with beards on the skulls for lammasu, I will do that. Maybe slaves dragging it, like snotlings or mixed clanrats/nightgoblins. The crew haven’t been bought yet, will do when I get money!
Cool one there Kera! You used the Helblaster parts too, I can see. I didn’t buy the whole box, only the rocket parts, from an Empire-player friend. But there is more to come… And about the annihilators, the reason i will go with bazooka theme is that I was inspired by the illustration, on page 26 in the Indy GT CD book. That’s a boomstick I like!
For the blunderbusses, I thought of dwarfs warriors with masks and different beards, wielding small plastic tubes with added details (like spikes) The guys in the front will be aiming, the guys in the other ranks will hold it kinda like the illustration I mentioned, or like normal thunderers.
I was thinking about your idea for BBussers and I think having them with vertical rifles would be great. Make the weapons look authentic and it will definitely work. I have never been a fan of dwarf models where the missile weapon crosses the body, it obscures a lot of detail. I think a unit with bbusses shouldered would be excellent.
