My week has been very unproductive on the hobby front. I have managed to get some things fixed though for my Biker Chaos Lord, Soulgore. I did also manage to get his magnetized arms fully painted and sealed. They were being sealed when I took these shots, otherwise I’d have tried to get better shots of them.
Some noticed last week that my Chaos Lord, Soulgore, was leaning forward a bit too much and he looked a bit off on his bike. I had not noticed it too much at first but once pointed out it was obvious and began to bug me. I had to fix a few things to straighten him up.
First up, the legs. I had to move the magnet back and that meant digging out the old magnet and that is always a process. I had to greenstuff to fix the mess from digging out the magnet.
Second, you’ll notice the back of the bike seat is slightly altered. I cut half the width of the vertical back part of the seat and sliced into the seat. I used a little greenstuff to blend the seat into the cut area and done. Both of these items still need a bit of sanding.
Last, me just showing Soulgore’s pose on the bike with the mentioned work done. He can see straight forward now!
The final thing is I started working out a new Chaos Lord for the bike. I really enjoy Chaos Lords on the battlefield. They are one of the few HQs in the codex that was done well and are easily my favorite choice. So, there may come a time when I want to run Soulgore on his standard Juggernaut mount and also run a Lord on a bike. Soulgore can’t do both so I started working on a torso and head for a new Chaos Lord. That’s what I love about magnets; I only need a torso and head for a new HQ :)
Anyway, here’s a quick not-so-great shot of what I was thinking of using. I don’t really do elaborate with my Chaos Space Marines. It just doesn’t fit the Disciples of Twilight theme. I try and make the HQs stand out in other ways than being decorated and adorned with all sorts of extra stuff. So, this is simple and I think it works. I may add more horns, like from each side of his head so it’s almost like hair sweeping back.
Anyone else stalling behind on projects? I have a big tournament coming up and need to finalize a list and then make sure the painting is done for it. Progress meter about 10% on that front.
