Legion of JaskorhJasko 04-14-2019

Alright, time to start the showcase for the reason I'm actually here, my Chaos Dwarf Legion of Azgorh!

Currently my army sits unassembled in two large boxes, and it is my plan to assemble it over the next, well, months. I have always been a terribly slow hobbyist, but I really want to get a lot done from now on. My plan is to alternate between completely painting my first army (my Night Goblins) and assembling my Chaos Dwarfs. I am not planning to show lots of unpainted models here, so it will be many months before this thread really gets going. I will only show something where I am proud of some conversions and the like (I have a few things planned)

But in order to have some start here, I am now showing my Sorcerer-Prophet on Lammasu, which was among the first models to arrive and I just couldn't resist to start with something Respect to the Hat!. Like so many of us I opted for the Lammasu from Raging Heroes and the mounted Sorcerer-Prophet from Lost Kingdoms.



I didn't particularly like the original saddle and definitely wanted to use the one from the Sorcerer-Prophet, so I cut a way the original one, sculpted (well, to the best of my abilities) a large scale to match the scaled back/tail and attached the saddle. Problem is, it is considerably longer than the original one, so my Sorcerer-Prophet ended up kinda leaning forwards. It's the only thing I am not 100% satisfied with, but it was a necessary tradeoff. I mean it works for a diorama pose, but not reaaaally for the whole model. When I eventually put it on a base I will try and tilt the whole model up a little bit with green stuff and try to correct for it, but it will still remain. Cannot catch them all!



What I do like however, actually very much to be honest, is how magnetizing the whole thing worked out! I always wanted to be able to switch the rider between the Lammasu and the Forgeworld Great Taurus (Drazhoath is a gorgeous model, but out of principle I try not to use special characters as stand-ins for regular characters), and I was also sure that painting a completely assembled model would be horrible, so I magnetized it.



If you're familiar with the High Elf Frost/Flamespyre Phoenix, which can be used both mounted and unmounted, GW lets you either attach the saddle or basically an insert, which I used to create my own attachment (obviously also magnetized) for the unthinkable situation where my poor Sorcerer-Prophet gets killed (I know, sacrilege!) or should I ever play Storm of Magic and can have an unmounted Lammasu.




And lastly, since I was already knees deep in magnetizing, I did the same for the head to be able to also use the beautiful Manticore head! (two monsters for the price of one, I like that). I neither play any army able to field a Manticore nor Storm of Magic, but you never know and I would have hated myself for missing the opportunity.





I gave the Manticore a scar over his left eye like the eponymous character from the Lion King, I really like that for a Manticore.

So, that's about it for the moment. Don't hold your breath for progress here, it will be glacially slow - but hopefully just as inevitable Takes Hat off

Haha, yeah I guess even the smallest neodyms would be quite large for a 15mm model. Maybe as a hat Tongue

I'm only playing 8th edition. I mean at least until GW releases a sweet Chaos Dwarf AoS faction Takes Hat off

Such a great combo as a leader.  I am jealous already, although not of the work involved.

Some really nice conversion work on this model.  I'm a big fan of the magnetized options and modular nature of the options especially the riderless insert.  Well done! Takes Hat off

Haha, ach it wasn't even that much. The biggest challenge was actually starting. I was a little nervous with cutting away large pieces of the Manticore. But once I saw I was on the right path it was actually great fun. That damn scale did cost me the most nerves. I remodelled it several times. First it was basically just a saddle blanket. But I didn't like how it looked when I removed the saddle (obviously). So I remodelled it as a scale. But then it turned out way to large and so on...

Haha, there you go! One could also use some kind of rod to easily remove models from the middle of the table Unsure I think we're on to something here

Thanks, it's what I like most about it as well.

Thank you very much, you're all too kind for a grey/green WIP Tongue Wink
But then again all these encouraging comments almost have me at the point where I scrap my original hobby plan for the summer and focus solely on my Chaos Dwarfs. Takes Hat off

Almost Tongue And my overarching plan for the whole year was "make plans and stick with them for once." Big Grin
