Drazhar Update

Thursday, February 13, 2014

Life has been extra busy so far this year but has also been extra awesome. Between work, class, and buying a house, I haven't been able to get any gaming in yet, but there has been some progress on a few hobby projects. Drazhar has undergone some minor updates and is almost ready for some liquid green stuff. First, I moved him over to a proper round base, borrowing from the new Farseer blister.

Next, I needed to do something about the lack of trophy racks on the back. I tried to make the Incubi racks work but they were far too busy and would interfere with the position of the klaive. So I chopped off the backpack of a warrior and filed it down to fit with the back torso.

I think this will work well once I clean up the transitions; it adds just enough bulk and helps him fit in more with elements of the classic kabalite armor. Then I attached spare shoulder pads from the Hellion box to further that image. At this point it became clear what I needed to address next: shrimp arm.

A shoulder pad on the right arm would go right up to the hand and just wouldn't look right, especially for such a prominent location on the model. So I borrowed an arm from the same kabalite crewman and had my haemonculi chop and drill it to just the right size.

A couple pins later and voila.

I just need to position and glue the cape before I start smoothing all the transitions with green stuff. I'm eager to get some paint on this one but I need the weather and my schedule to cooperate a little better if I'm going to get any base coating done. For now, Drazhar will have to join my other expensive HQ's waiting in line for some spray paint.


  1. Wow, that model pretty much sums up WHY I still mess around with 40k- it's so epic and dramatic.
    Excellent conversion. Really excellent.
    And that god, looks like it would take the leg right off a Warhound!
    Two tentacles way up!

    1. Thanks SinSynn! The models are what keep me in this hobby as well. I don't get to play as often as I'd like, but I'll always make time to work on models like that.

  2. Awesome, action-packed pose! Great work.

    1. Thanks J.D., I'm really digging your Dark Eldar/Eldar conversions at the moment! I may need to borrow your recipe for Warp Spiders and those Executioner heads are too good to pass up ;)
