Thats right folks. I have started on a carnival wraithknight for La Danse Macabre. Although I have to still work on my Bjorn for dreadtober I thought I would do this as well :).
Now the plan is to simply complete the conversion by the end of October, and paint Bjorn as well. Part of the reason for me starting this (as well as being fired up by the idea) is because I have only sporadic access to my painting desk due to my son sleeping in our bedroom in the evenings (where it is located), so I have to sit on the stairs and work, which is nearly impossible with paining. Therefore I decided to start this project alongside Bjorn, and tbh I am having an absolute blast converting it.
This knight was an ebay rescue job that has sat in dettol for the last few weeks stripping the paint off. I got it for £25 inc postage which I think is an absolute bargain and although it needed work doing to it, I was going to chop it up anyway so it did not really matter. So far I have reposed the legs so the right leg is balancing on a giant beach ball, and I straightened the left to take the weight of the (soon to be worked on) swinging body and arms. By far the biggest job has been removing all the gems and extensions to the leg parts, and filling, filing & sanding it all down and smoothing off. I really like the sleek look he now has, and the spikes to the rear really add a dangerous touch to the legs that I am liking alot. The final touch was a flowing banner attached to the crotch area and a cronos shield instead of the more Eldar one he had before. Overall I am really pleased with the progress so far and I cannot wait to get more done over the coming month.
What are your thoughts on him so far?
