Thor’s Showcase: Warpsmith Grimtech

This was hands down one of my favorite projects. I put a lot of time into sculpting and converting Warpsmith Grimtech and I’m very happy with the results. Really, there’s very little on this model that I did not create, convert or alter.


There you have it, the completed Warpsmith Grimtech. Now let’s see if paint improves his standing with the Chaos gods.

  • He looks great! Nice work. The only critique is that he’s going to take up a fair amount of space in your figure case…

    • He’s also hard to get into base contact with ;) I tried to keep the mechatendrils from getting too out of control but confining them to a 25mm base just wasn’t going to happen. Fortunately he fits right into one of my existing trays with my Obliterators, so right at home for a Warpsmith.

      Oh, thanks!

    Very cool. That’s one big, honkin’ eye!

    • Thanks.

      It is big. I used it to cover up that eye lens so it had to be a bit bigger than normal. I suppose I could have filled in the lens first then added on the auspex so it would be a more normal size but the one I sculpted grew on me. It adds a bit of character I think.

        You made the right choice. It looks more…significant this way. Kinda looks like he ripped it out of an enemy vehicle or Dreadnought and kept it for himself.

        • I like the idea and may have to make use of it in his back-story.

    Paint job and conversion look awesome. The rock is off putting I can’t figure it out it just makes the stance look awkward. That could just be the photos though.

    Can’t wait to see it in person sometime soon.

    • Thanks.

      The rock does look odd at certain angles. I struggled with getting that leg placed just right on there and some angels make that more apparent than others. I can live with it though. The day I get something perfect is the day I stop working on models :)
