    The Forge of Khorne: It's a Doom Blaster AND a Tower of Skulls

    So I'm sitting here waiting until I get the resin for my Plague Tower project when I decided I needed something else to work on. It was then I was reminded of a conversation I had with my friend over other daemon engines that are begging to be built. I wanted to do a Doom Blaster and he wanted a Tower of Skulls. Then he gave me a great idea: Why not have one that can be both? BRILLIANT!

    And so here we are a day or two into this new project. I'm building two as my proof of concept and like the Plague Towers these will go on sale once they're done. Providing they work out and there's a demand more may come from the forge. So here we go....

    My plan is to have the Doom Blaster and Tower of Skulls be a removal section from the middle of the chassis. With any luck this will be one piece that can be popped in and out depending on what Khornate daemon engine you're planning to use that day.

    First up are the chassis. Simple, plain Baneblades unknowingly being set up for a most heinous project. Their Imperial aquilas removed and replaced with the icons of Chaos:

    Next up are the panels that will make up the base of the Doom Blaster and also the Skull Tower. The tower will be eight sided and will compose of 16 of these panels, which will be cast from resin. I haven't sculpted skulls in a while so this gave me a chance to brush up.

    Last up on this WIP is the Doom Mortar/Maw cannon of these two beasts. This is just simple PVC piping with plastic card and green stuff applied. The Tower of Skulls will have one of these as the main gun while the Doom Blaster will be sporting a total of four.

    Overall not bad for a day's work and as always, more to come....

    That cannon gives me a strange tingling sensation in the region of my brain that tells me when I see somthing awsome.

    Ah, that's the way to go! Now, I hope some more folks get inspirated and use the same technique, or rather I know they will - it's quite much the most excellent, archaic Chaos gun so far made apart from the Hell Cannon.

    Actually... seeing the lack of actual Chaos symbols (that vague, or rather subtle, eight-pointed star is quite generic), I certainly think you could and should cast-sell this gunnie.

    Well, you may consider me as subscribed, dear sir. This is indeed an intresting project log, and I personally think you should sell couple of these beatuful thingies. Just make it bit "below the counter", because you don't want to step on GW's foot.

    Well I've been busy this weekend with our little project. So before I encase these parts in liquid rubber I thought I'd let you see what I've been working on.

    First up are the finished panels and spacers. These will make up the floor in the Doom Blaster and the tower on the Tower of Skulls. What do you think, need more skulls?

    Next up are the glorious weapons...

    The Skullreaper Cannon:

    Attachment 52621

    ...and the sponson mounted Skullshredder and Doomfire Cannon:

    Attachment 52622

    Lastly, the pointy bit to the left and the short wall piece are for the parapet of the Tower of Skulls. The last piece is the one of the mounts for the Doom Mortar:

    Next up is the chassis work.

    Re: The Forge of Khorne: It's a Doom Blaster AND a Tower of Skulls

    Today is assembly day!

    After many days of casting from dusk till dawn I now have all the components needed to assembled these two engines of destruction. As I didn't draw up any plans before starting on this project I'm very interested in how it's going to look.

    In the mean time, here's everything laid out:

    Immense. Simply huge, I love it. The casting seems to have worked quite well.

    Re: The Forge of Khorne: It's a Doom Blaster AND a Tower of Skulls

    Update time. Today I finished the Tower of Skull's sponsons and the panels for the Doomblaster. Each are detachable and are held in place by those nifty little magnets.

    Here's the ToS with sponson guns ablazing (and yes, they do swivel):

    A close up of the sponson and it's replacment panel for the DB:

    Here they are switched:

    And a pic of the second beast that's a little more Khorney:

    Just need to finish up the ToS deck and engine and she'll be ready for some paint.

    Sign me up!

    Amazing!

    Will you be making some Khorne-y treads to replace the Imperial treads?

    Got another update, the beast (I call this one Red Bull) nears completion. Just need to finish up a few things on the parapet and he's ready for paint. After putting on all those rivets I'm ready for bed....

    Here's the engine used on both of them.

    Re: The Forge of Khorne: It's a Doom Blaster AND a Tower of Skulls

    More updates today. Got most of the red and black done, just need some clean up work and highlights. I'm thinking I'll try painting all the big skulls a bone color as they kind of get lost being black at the moment. But hopefully this project is nearing an end...until I start the next one.

    Enjoy!

    That is just incredible, ive seen some great scratch work and conversions so far on here but that is just amazing. Brilliant work and is there any chance of getting some shots of those on the table?
