I made a daemon engine from a charity shop toy
« on: November 29, 2022, 10:48:07 AM »
I have no idea what the toy is or where it came from, but I've had it for years. Inspired by a facebook group challenge, I finally got it together to convert, crew and paint it. I think of it as some primeval boar god corrupted by the coming of chaos and finally entombed alive in this brass and bone nightmare, with the high-pitched shriek of the saw blade being like the squealing of the boar. Here it is!

Tremendous! That's just screaming to be used in a game!

That's a very effective conversion of that Reaper figure too.

Thanks! In my experience, a lot of Reaper Bones figures, particularly older ones and human-sized ones, benefit from head swaps and weapon swaps. If you have a well-stocked bits box you can do a lot with them; otherwise, the smaller figures are just a bit too bendy.

Yes, indeed - and it fixes the problem of soft details on Bones faces.

Pretty cool

I absolutely love projects like this one.

And yours turned out amazing!

Any progress picture or a before/after photo?

Yes! What on earth did the toy look like before?!

Pretty much like that1 All I did was fill in some gaps and holes, build the platform at the rear so that the chariot had two sort of siege tower levels, make a floor for the "cockpit" area, and so on. The basic structure of a boar with a buzzsaw in its head was already there. Honestly, I have no idea where it came from.

Also, don't ask how the guys up top get up there. I was going to add a ladder but I forgot.

Add a rolled up rope ladder to the top level. You don't want people/things
climbing up a ladder after you, do you?

I found it!

Or at least I found someone else talking about it


 James, I think you did an amazing job. it really does look like something you would see in a large chaos invasion.

That's it, all right! The rest of the line looks like it would make pretty good Chaos marauder fodder as well, actually.
