[Archive] K'daii destroyer idea

ghostmako:

Hi, i’m looking for an idea for my k’daii destroyer. i was thinking abaut using Ghorgon as a base and change him. but how?

change the arms whit clogs, and put him in four legs.

After that?

if someone have made it, could he possibly post it, to make an idea how i should do it.

P.s sorry formy bad english, i’m not very good at writing and speaking but i understand it quite well;)

Thank you for your future answer

Bloodbeard:

Check my blog. Link in signiature. I have a Ghorgon Destroyer going on. Last in the thread.

ghostmako:

thank you all, i take some good idea, expecialy form the chain and the metal plates:)

I have a question about it too because now i’m purchasing all the models i need but still i’m empty on the Destroyer spot.
I thought like way too many to use this:

but then i was like: “how will it look like with the Shedu head from raging heroes?”
Shedu/Sphinx Head - Raging Heroes

Anyone knows is the match with the sizes?

So here on the thread of another pal i’m here asking this question.
Do you ppl think it can fit? Or is just way too “human” on a model that is aimed on a much more mechanized style?

I made 2 fast photoshop versions of it, let me know.

Skink:

Unfortunately nope, it won’t. The Shedu is a fairly small miniature, which fits on a 50mm base. I’m afraid that its head would look tiny on a Forgefiend’s neck… That was a cool idea though!

Alternatively, I can’t find the thread anymore but back in the days somebody had the Idea of using the Necrosphinx’s head with the addition of horns & beard. It looked faboulous.

ahh.. damn. i was already excited about it. is it really this small? I mean, as small as the original head?
I saw someone using it recently on the chaos defiler and the size was good.

Skink:

This guy used it on a Forgeworld Taurus to make a Lammasu.

Now, I’d wager that a Forgefiend it’s about the same size as the fliying cow… Anyway, the Shedu’s head shouldn’t definitely be as big as the photoshopped pic you posted above.

this makes me quite sad, i was thinking for the entire day for an alternative of a just regular forgefiend.
I have none of them here at home, the fiend is 53 euro and the head for being only 6euro i never needed because i already own a lammasu.
well s#!t :mad i'm disappointed :(

ps using the sphinx head must be a hell of work with the GS

EDIT: a friend suggested maybe this giant head, i already thought about it too: http://www.games-workshop.com/resources/catalog/product/600x620/99120299011_GiantNEW03.jpg

Skink:

Found it.

I’m going to be converting the model below into my destroyer. It reminds me of the hellcannon with all the skulls and looks awesome in my mind. I’ll post some pics once I buy and convert mine.

Bloodbeard:

I say go foe the shedo head and maulerfiend! It’s an awesome idea. just drop the long neck and go for something similar to the necrosphinx conversion. making some strecthed green stuff skin is relatively easy.

The giants head is a bit smaller than the shedu head actually. because the shedu has all the hair and horns going. I believe it can work.

@bloodbeard33: I’m affraid that flying skull tiger will look really small on a large 100*150 base. will require some super diorama styled basing to work.

but it’s an awesome model and haven’t seen it used as a destroyer before.

Yeah Bloodbeard I saw one at my local gw today and noticed it was alot smaller than most of the other destroyer models I've seen. I will probably add a few more of those little ghost spirit bits and paint them up like mini fireborn. Definitely will be working the basing to my favor also. I have alot of ideas to make it work, I just love that model. Lol

Found it.


Skink
That was kinda the idea i had too, only I dont know if i will be able to chance the position of the hand like that so eventually i will have just the basic version of it.

In my head is great too, you saw the pic i made, but if it isnt as big as that i might have problems because I have no idea nor way to use properly the GS

tjub:

Don’t think Ive seen it done before, cool idea and it looks in line with the FW guys as well. :slight_smile:
