Counts-as Huron: Concept #2

Counts-as Huron Blackheart: Modeling Concept

I mentioned yesterday talking about my Biker Chaos Lord that I need to start working on a counts-as Huron for my army, so last night I started that process.

I will end up creating a built-in heavy flamer for the lightning claw. The claw is two parts and I didn’t set in the fingers for the test shot.

The parts are from a bit of everything but it’s what I like about it. My Chaos Space Marines are renegades, they scrounge for every piece of equipment they can get and this fits the bill. Obviously things are just blue tacked in place but I’m looking for feedback. I think the parts will work well.

What do you think?

The parts look great. I want to see him on a bigger more elaborate base though! Maybe a scrap pile to go with your background on your army?

Also think some cloak bits might go well to add some detail or flow on the legs (or maybe glue some grenades or holster on his hips).

I would add something on or around the legs. The top makes a V image with the model which has a lean appearance not a big tough marine look.


Looks like a good start, but I’ve always been on the fence about the berzerker legs. They often look less like they’re running and morel like they’re about to face plant. I think the problem is that someone who is running doesn’t usually have their foot that high and far behind them at the same time as their other foot is planted. I think it would help a lot if you repositioned it a little so that the front foot is further ahead of him. If you’re doing a scenic base for him you can easily bulk up a little dirt in front of his foot with the toe a little above his heel, like his foot is sinking down a bit as he lands. That will kick the hips back and rear foot down a little so that his center of gravity doesn’t look like it’s ahead of his feet.

Other than that I like the pose of the arms and the combination of bits.


Looking good. I like the horny head and style on the claw. Huron is one of my fave characters–he’s just about got it all. He’s also a cool character anyway, the whole pirate story and all. I made my own too but made him like a renegade space wolf guy. I kinda regret not fielding him AS Huron the pirate lord.
