Progress has slowly been made on my Chaos Lord on Juggernaut since my last update in part-5. In fact, he's now complete, and you can follow along with these pics to the final phase below.
As you can see in these first few pics, I liked the bio-organic aspect of this juggernaut model and emphasized the "bio" parts only with it's mouth. I thought it might look cool to make the teeth and gums look real, like a mean dog perhaps.
Then came the daunting task of assembly. This model actually goes together quite easily, however it was intended to be assembled on a flat plain, not on the multiple levels of the molded cracked battlefield dreadnought base that I had decided to use. What I thought would work best would be to assemble it one leg at a time, Which is what I decided to do:
After that I attached the other two legs, however I was displeased with how these last two legs were attaching to the base, so I pulled the whole thing apart and redid the assembly.
After reassembly I was still have spacing problems with the rear leg, it was just simply too high up and it was never going to touch the ground. After a brief brain storm, my solution came in the form of one of the Citadel Basing Kits that I have, in particularly the slate pieces with it. These acted as shims allowed me to fill that gap and solved the problem.
|Now with more stones!|
Once I finished the rider, it was time to attach him. And after a few bad starts, I got the model fully assembled and really to collect skulls! But enough of my rambling, just enjoy these next few pics:
And with that, I now have a completed Warlord on a Juggernaut. In the background, you might have spotted a red rhino. That is actually my Vindicator of khorne which I haven't done any more work on since December. Worse, it took some damage during transport the last time I took it to a game (it's probably more fun to just blame those dastardly Ravenwing Bikers!) and I put it on the bench to not only make these repairs but to finish the model.
Stay tuned for more Khorney posts! :)
