So there has been some discussion about using this model as a potential destroyer:
I picked one up for about $12 from Ebay. It’s not as big as I would like it to be, but I did some converting and thought I’d show what I came up with. I added 3 layers of cork to the bottom to give him some more height. I also green stuffed the bottom to give the effect that he is melting the rock that he is on. The additional cork on the base will be rock and the blank bottom will be lava. For the base, I just used a movement tray and put the liners on top instead of around the outside to keep the true size.
The sword was a left over bit from my Soul Grinder, I think it worked out pretty well… Here’s an image with one of Titan Wargames’ Chaos Dwarfs for size reference:
First off, I am a terrible sculptor. Absolutely terrible.
Here is my meager offering for my K’daii Destroyer. I always envisioned a flaming bull as a K’daii Destroyer, so ordered 2 toy versions from ebay. Papo was the name of the company that made this. I ordered 2, figuring that I could get 2 attempts at getting this right, and that the head of the rejected one would be put on as my BSB standard.
This is bertha the bull next to the original version.
I added a layer of green stuff, but quickly ran out and resorted to milliput. I simply coated the model and etched in plating to represent hardened rocm over a magma interior.
I kind of like the fact that the head is down in a charging position. It’s movement 9, so I like the result. The tail in the back really concerns me, I wound up putting alot of milliput flames on it to make it a fireball to swat the unfortunate souls around it.
Did I fail to mention that I stink at sculpting? Thank Hashut for cell phone low resolution!!
@ryanamandaanna: Are you planning on painting the flame part? It does look pretty good as see-through.
I’m really surprised that I can’t find some sort of toy robot bull. I could’ve sworn I’ve seen one somewhere in my foggy past. The only one I can really find is an old Transformer, but it’s not very good. I’d just love to use some nasty looking robot bull.
Failing a robot bull…does anyone know about a really big robot type thing to use? I know tjub built one and I love it. I’d really like some sort of gigantic steam punk creature. I don’t know if any of the Warmachine stuff would could as huge. I plan on using some warjack type things for my regular k’daii.
Well, actually your sculpting skills are not so bad as you say! I like the cracked lava effect, it’s painted very welll.
My only complain are flames, they are too… gummy, clumsy… dunno how to say in English.
Milliput is fine for the bulk of the structure but flames are better if made with green stuff. You can play with it and it’s preatty easy to create good flames. Just make stripes and stuck them to the main body of the flame and pull them with a sculpting tool, thorning the “sausage” in many smaller stripes.
