This Chaos Space Marines Helbrute (Deathcry) has been pretty much done for a while. By pretty much I mean I had everything done and sealed except for the ranged weapon arm and the weapon under the power fist. For a while I wasn’t sure what other weapon I wanted to give him. So, he sat in limbo for a bit.
I love the look of the havoc launcher, so I converted it a bit to work on the Helbrute, nothing major. I normally don’t run a combi-bolter on my Helbrute, Chaos has to pay for it, but I had created it a long time ago and figured I may as well paint it up and slap it on for some shots. The combi-bolter is also magnetized.
Anyway, enough rambling and on to pictures.
Aside: I merged two separate showcases into this one if you’re wondering why the picture quality difference.

Helbrute Painting Showcase
I’m pretty happy with how this Helbrute came out. It was a conversion I started a long time ago (Assault on Black Reach starter set), back when they were Dreadnoughts, not Helbrutes. I figure he’s a more recent addition to the Disciples of Twilight, my Chaos Space Marines warband, so he lacks the mutated look the new Helbrutes have.
Deathcry (Helbrute) Showcase
This more recent gallery has Deathcry updated to the fluffy snow technique.
I just noticed there’s a hair that shows up on the twin-linked lascannon arm at the bottom of the Chaos symbol. Doh!
The twin-linked lascannon is made from the Iconclad Dreadnought’s hurricane bolter casing with some plastic syringe tips for the lascannons. It’s a simple conversion but I think it works.
Oh, his name Deathcry is a bit of a joke because whenever I field this Helbrute he doesn’t accomplish anything, and because of the face of the model. I tell everyone he’s crying because nobody wants to play with him.
