Hello, this is my new log for Chaos Dwarfs.
First up a conversion for Hobgoblins, now I was toying with the idea of converting them from skaven clan rat models with night goblin heads, but I want more of a mechanical/industrial look to my hobgoblins to match the new look of Chaos Dwarfs.
Eventually I kitbashed these together which still need arms and some gs around the joints. They kind of remind me of the small masked creature in Van Helsing, which is just fine imo.
I would like to think of them as the overseer militia over the slaves toiling the furnaces of the chaos dwarfs, where long days of inhaling noxious fumes and corrosive smoke would eventually kill any mortal organism (barring the Dawi Zharr themselves). So Hellsmiths constructed devices to filter the suite, whilst the masks protect eyes and prevent the smoke form entering the breathing apparatus of the Hobgoblin overseers; the fiddly work of stiching skin into masks is left to the Hobgoblins (hence the botch job).
Their noses and ears are removed for air tight masks. So I will be making a Hob goblin Khan holding his mask with a mutilated Goblin head, no nose or ears, and potentially no lips.
Chaos Dwarfs will be making an appearance soon.
