Default Completed and Painted! GoW Conversion W/pics.

Some of you may have seen the unpainted version of this Kroot Shaper many weeks ago. Now, freely available, is the completed version. BEHOLD!!! :rockon:






My apologies for the poor images, they were taken by webcam. I am now accepting comments/complaints/praise/rants, as well as any suggestions for future Kroot conversions.

Yep, counts as a shaper with a plasmagun and a power weapon.

Wow, big gun.

Looks nice. I was actually thinking of converting some Locusts for (possessed maybe?) for my Chaos army, I must show GoW somehow in it!
How did you do the chainsaw? Did you just cut a bit off of a chainsword and glue it on the gun? It looks nice no matter what you did

Chaos Chainaxe, actually. The evenly curved mono-sided axe head makes for the perfect adjoiner to this conversion. If you want to run it as a basic weapon, just file down or greenstuff the plasma coils.

I was actually thinking of making some Kroot specially designed to be Locust variants (including a Krootox converted into a boomer, a "theron" shaper, some wretches as kroot-hound stand-ins, and eventually a Nid-tainted Greater Knarlock as a Seeder (Count as a ridden Knarloc with explosive bolts)
