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.

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.
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.
