Thor’s Workbench: Chaos Lord Soulgore – WIP #1

I’ve actually done a few prior WIPs of this model I’ve been working on forever but this is the first time it’s actually taken shape where I’m happy with it. Soulgore is my Chaos Lord who rides a Juggernaut of Khorne, however, where I play an undivided Chaos warband I wanted something that wasn’t god specific. Instead he rides a bull, as you’ll see below.

Originally I thought I could pull off creating riding legs from standard legs, with some work of course, but I quickly found out it was not going to work. Well, more like it wasn’t worth the effort when I could work off something already posed correctly. Khorne Inquisitor was nice enough to give me some Warriors of Chaos sprues with a rider.

Using these legs was a HUGE time saver. I’m also a fan of the Chaos fantasy line and like the blend of fantasy and 40K, though I know some do not. I had to do some green stuff work to fill gaps mostly since the bull’s back is pointed. Right now the torso is just blue tacked on there and later I’ll need to green stuff the chain mail to meet the torso since the torso is a hair smaller than the fantasy one.

With this part mostly done I finally feel like the model is getting somewhere. I’ll likely do some green stuff work to detail the model some more and make it more Lord-like.

Update: You can see the model completed in my Chaos Lord Soulgore showcase.

    It looks awesome. They say the devil is in the details, and you nail those. I like how the saddle is seamlessly integrated via greenstuff, again showing how smooth and seamless your greenstuff work is.

    • Thanks!

      I agree about the details. The best conversions I always find to be the ones where you can’t tell it’s a conversion. Meaning, there should be no glaring elements that look like they were just slapped on. Hopefully once I get the rest of him done it will be a seamless look.

    Your sculpting skills have come leaps and bounds over the last year. Looking cool and unique, much better than the standard Juggernaut(even though it is a cool model).
    Is the entire Lord going to be more Fantasy Chaos or are you going to make it CSM?

    • Playing Chaos has given me the chance to do more green stuff work than loyalists or Orks. It’s one reason I’ve become addicted to the army.

      I’m leaning more towards Fantasy than 40K in style. It’s hard to get around those legs; they sort of set the trend. There’s a cool cleaver like axe that I got with the sprues off Willy that I’m using as the axe of blind fury. Of course that’s attached to a Fantasy arm so I tried it out and I like how it looks, though I used a 40K shoulder pad. The other arm I’ve done as an old Possessed arm, all mutated. I’m also trying out the head that comes with the Fantasy rider and it works.

      I’ll end up taking a bunch of shots with different options and get some feedback though. Some arms were already magnetized that I’m trying and other stuff I’ll just blue tac on to check out.

    I gotta say it man. I have been excited about this project your working on for chaos the most. I know the helldrake is coming out amazingly, but I cant wait to see this finished up! It is looking great keep up the good work. I wish I could do half the stuff you do with a the modeling knife.

    • It’s definitely the project I’m most excited about too. It’s been WIP forever now and with the Heldrake painting out of the way I can finally focus on it more.

  • Warren Falconer

    It’s coming out great! I have been excited to see progress ever since you posted the mount you were going to use. Can’t wait to see more progress!

    • The rest of the work should come together quickly; at least to get it to a usable point so I’m no longer just putting down the bull in my games. I hope.
