Epic : Armageddon – Scratching the Leviathan

Before presenting the final results, I wanted to share some pics, revealing more details of how I actually scratched the two Leviathan models, putting an old style Leman Russ aside for size comparison. As you can see, I used just a very few bitz and mostly built the entire model from plastic card, which you can find in any store, offering products for architects. The tracks are Warhammer 40k Imperial Guard Leman Russ tracks I think. that aside I used some parts from Ork Battlewaggons to make the gun barrels look similar to one another. After constructing the basic chassis, producing most parts as pairs, to build up both Leviathans simultaneously, I started adding detail, with more, thinner layers of plastic card, tubes etc. and some other spare bitz. cutting little chunks out of the plastic card edges, gave the impression of detail and a warpish feeling to the war engines. Bolts were added as in most 40k conversions, by cutting little parts from plastic card tubes. When I started the conversion, Squat Leviathans used to have 6DC, which they do not have any longer, so proportion wise, this scratch might be a bit large nowadays.

If you have any questions, feel free to post them. Otherwise I will try to get the next post with painted minis up by Friday.

Best,

Epic Armageddon – Ordinatus Majoris and Chaos Squat Leviathan

Hey guys,

this is just a short post about some conversions I did recently (well most of them). The first few conversions are bsed on the new Adeptus Mechanicus Kataphron battle servitors. The tracks and engine parts make perfect war engine sized chassis for super heavy tanks or Ordinatus Majoris. Depending on the scale you chose for your army, they are large enough to count as 3 or 4 DP war engines. As I tend to use the metal Baneblades etc. they do just well as Ordinatus Majoris with a total of four damage points.

Scale wise I put them close to a Warhound, which shows how much bulkier they are. In a box of combat servitors come three chassis, which is enough to create two or three Ordinati and another unit. As I wanted to field my steel legion as Cadians every once in a while, I decided to convert one chassis into a Cadian Leviathan and the other two in Ordinatus Majoris with Nova cannon and the Ordinatus Cadia with double Plasma Destructors. Roughly two years ago I built up a Chaos Squat army (not managed to paint them up yet). Doing so I created some Overlords, Goliaths and Leviathans. As the latter have 6 damage points in the squat list, they seemed a bit off scale when fielded in a Cadian list. This is mainly why I decided to go for another Leviathan proxy after all.

The Cadian Leviathan is a super heavy armored vehicle lacking the otherwise characteristic main turret with battle cannon built on the original models produced by Games Workshop ages ago.Never the less I like the Idea of a massive Battle tank with enough space for a command centre inside its armored hull. The Ordinati on the other side had to look slightly more fragile. Therefore I used the central towers of two Space Hulk CATS in order to build up a sensor array tower. Fluff wise the tower coordinates the targeting matrix and focusses the immense firepower of these colossal siege machines.

In the video you can also take a short look on some conversions for combat servitors made from Ork Nobz. If the article was at least a little helpful or inspirational, feel free to leave a little comment below. If you have any further questions or got some neat conversions as well, you can also contact me and send me some shots of your conversions or whatever – maybe I will show your miniatures on my blog quite soon 😉

Battlefleet Gothic – Demiurg Fleet completed

Image

Hey guys,

here are some photos of my completed Demiurg fleet. Even though Forgeworld originally intended the ships to fly the other way around, my mind really resisted to accept that. In consequence I simply painted some bridge like windows on the ships and keep the modeled bridge counting as backward hangars. I hope you enjoy what you see.
