Hi Everyone, a short introduction. I’d played WH fantasy for 10 years. My other armys are lizardman, skaven & dwarfs. I’d dabbled with CD before skaven and fascinated by the range of option available to CD, infantry, calvary, warmachine & magic. I’d been lurking in the forum browsing for ways to convert my own army. I’d attached WIP photos of my various units.
I’ll keep the beards to differentiate between warriors and BB
Chaos knights horse body + Borc body + OK bull head
Bull centuars close up
the leftmost 2 will be affectionately named Jason & Jason Jr coz of their mask.
Hi Kera, thanks. Actually I saw your chaos lord on great taurus. I’m stealing the idea but replacing the rider with another dwarf bear rider from reaper model instead.
Hi Zanko, the original parts are chaos knight horse body + black orc body, arm & weapon + ogre bull head. had taken this idea another CD player from this forum, only difference is the player was using boar’s body instead.
I’m thinking dark red as a primary color is a must and the secondary color to be black? (I thinking of creating a shiny black like obsidian color.)
I do have 2 question.
1) How to paint the base to have the stone & flowing lava effect?
2) How to create the shiny black color like obsidian?
Great start Gavan like the use of the chaos steeds at the bodys of the Bullcentaurs gives they a great look with the extra armour, good to see you have got a death rocket as well you can never have enough of them, keep up the good work cant wait to see some of them painted
Hi Xander, thanks. Yup yellow stuff. They are just Tamiya putty. They harden faster than GW greenstuff. 2 hour for the surface & 4 for the whole thing.
Hi Loki, thanks. The only issue I have with using chaos steed for BC is the size, they tower the other CD warriors by 3X the height. I actually have 2 DR done the same way. My motto like all governments’ “Why build 1 when you can build 2?” j/k
I’d just rceived more parts yesterday and I continue with my conversion again.
Hi Gavan i would not worry about the height difference the Bull centaurs in CD society are the blessed of Hashut because they have the lower body of the bull and as such they are given important duties ie guard the sorcerers who are at the top of the CD tree of power, your ones are just more blessed then any others
Keep up the good work i am looking forward to seeing some of them painted
The use of the BO bodies and the barded chaos steed bodies is really good to get the feel for a really big and nasty beastie. However, before you prime and paint could you scrape off the Orc symbols on the minis?
From an aesthetic POV, would you be able to switch out the heads? Right now, the models don’t say Chaos Dwarf Bull Centaur to me, they say Black Orc centaur - the heads should at least have beards. Would it be possible to put Dwarf Warrior heads on the BO bodies here to give the models a more Chaos Dwarf look?
Hi Border Reiver, had scrapped off all orc symbol on the minis both on the gut & back of the BO body.
Unfortunately dwarf head is very small when mounted on the BO body. the best I did was to have ogre head for the rnf bulls. I’d greenstuff the beards onto the lord & hero’s head. Will take photo to replace those in my previous post.
