Arcuballis Chaos Dwarfs Blog - Steampunk flavoredArcuballis 10-06-2008

News from the front! At least I started to work on some prototypes for my Steampunk Chaos Dwarf army, which will use the Empire Armylist, as I've discussed on my other thread in the Ideas section of the forum...

Well, enough talking and let's go for the pictures (which Byt the way are very crappy, my camera does not have a Macro function):

Chaos Dwarf Hero:

This was the first of many Chaos Dwarfs that I will be doing with my intended Steampunk look & feel. I've used some bits from the 40k Chaos range and Orks, along with some WHFB Chaos Warriors bitz. The right arm was from the Chaos Warrior Champion, wielding a huge axe. The left hand came from the 40k Chaos SM Terminator range, a Powerfist with a chainsaw. The front part of the body (which will represent Meteoric Armor) came from a Chaos SM Terminator also. The backpack have a machinery bit from the old Ork Mega Armor, the fur cloak and beard was made from GS, the cloack buttons with those medals in the Dwarfs sprues, the mask was from the same sprue...





Next was a small unit of 4 Ironguts, with some CD style beards. The champion was armed with a Ork mega-armor power claw, with a Ork Dreadnought engine for the backpack:







Then came the Steam Tank, in a very early stage... The main hull came from a militaria 1:35 KV-2 russian tank turred, turned upside down, and the tiny track are from the old plastic ork bike sprue. I will be adding a cannon in the front, converted from an empire great cannon...





Well, stay tuned for the next updates, and as always, comments, ideas, critics and suggstions are more than welcome!!!!!

Cheers,   Cheers!

Yes!  Yes.  Your first CD looks quite a bit like a Squat, actually.  Which is cool.  I like the power fist ogre too, but I'm particularly looking forward to the steam tank!  Using the tank kit as a base was a very sound idea.

The steam tank is cool! Great idea with the KV turret, it is one of my favorite russian tanks, it looks so steam punk Big Grin

You could also use it as an unit filler for blunderbusses.... Happy

Wow! I'm very happy that you all liked them as much as I did! I was afraid to "overdosing" the steampunk theme and coming with a 40k Squat army instead of a Fantasy one... Tongue

More pictures to follow soon! I just finished converting the turban wearing hobbos, made another hero from the BFSP Thain model, the fire sorcerer from the more obvious choice of the guy holding the cannonball and a prototype for the chainsaw toting CD, representing a great weapon, using as a base the BFSP miners, who have 2 handed gripping pikes... Also, I almost finished a smaller version of the Steam Tank to represent the Helstorm mutibarreled gun...

Stay tuned! Cheers!

Cheers and please keep the coments, critics and suggestions coming! Takes Hat off

I relly like the Steam Tank, looks like a small stunty fantasy version of the colossus...
Btw, is it a KV-2 turret turned up side down? Tongue

Very imaginative take on Chaos Dwarfs, I like it very much! THe only (albeit minor) critisism is that maybe you should trim the axe arm on the hero. Seems a tad long to me.

Great work Arcuballis the ogres look great and the steam tank looks awesome, i agree with AGPO about the axe arm it does look a little bit long but other than that some really great models Happy
