Default Praetorian HSO

I'm no Col. Gravis but I liked the way this guy came out.

Basically I picked up the Empire Steam tank and was in the middle of converting it to a Praetorian Hellhound when I started to look at the gunner...I loved the model so much I decided to promoted him ASAP to HSO of my Praetorian 117th....This is my first real attempt to play with greenstuff, the bobbyhat on the HSO and the Ork torso is greenstuff.







Like I stated I am also working on a Praetorian Hellhound so far it's comming along, thursday my bits comein for my Praetorian rough rider unit so I am excited about that when it all painted up I plan to post the pics here.

*thumbs up*

Nice one, looks good! I'd never of thought to use that model bt it fits the feel of the army really well!

Look forward to seeing your Helhound and Roughriders in the future

DANG - That model is great! But I dont know about his bolter, looks a bit heavy for a skinny lad like him, snap his arm off. Anyway.. great job!

The ork torso was just a slab of greenstuuf basically made a rectangle then slapped in a large base. Then took a sculpting tool carved out a chest. Added some bits from the basic orc sprue like the bullet belt cut and reposition the arms and added the head. I'm pretty scared of greenstuff so I wanted to start simple.

Yeah the stormbolter was off the marine comander box so its ment for a seven foot juiced up spacemarine...but it was all I had and I love stormbolters so I had to use it.

The hellhound is comming along its more of a challenge than I thought its way smaller than a hellhound so I'm using pvc pipe to give it some size...

Thanks for the comments everyone

lol @bobbyhats ;D

Yeah I've not actually seen it done before truth be told, my own Ratlings (all three of them lol) got Shako's, another quite effective alternative was Turban's done by Tom-Heretic (Warseer & Dystartes), I've seen the army a couple of times in the flesh and it's actually very effective - helped by his superb painting, pic below.
