    Demiurg using Kharadron Overlords.

    To cut a long story short... I quite liked the idea of rock-dwarfs in space so I decided to put some together. I used some bits from various companies and based the troops around GW Kharadron Overlords with converted heads.

    These three are the first of the troopers:



    They represent (bottom row from left to right) a drone controller, leader and mech. After a little bit of negative feedback, the leader got a trim:



    The idea is that each unit has the three troopers above in it and is accompanied by a range of drones; both ground and air based. The first drones are these:



    I need to re-base them to match the Demiurg but they are painted and in storage somewhere so I will have to dig them out, at some point, to do it. I also need to tidy up the base of the drone controller that is posted below (the first one of the Demiurg that I have painted):



    The next one to be painted will be the mech.

    Great work Inso, it's good to see you have returned to this project

    I'm digging th controllers paint scheme and his face, he definitely doesn't look like a Kharadon anymore.

    That's the controller and the mech done now... next up is the leader (which is already started ).

    Re: Demiurg using Kharadron Overlords.

    So... in a moment of drug induced (prescribed painkillers) euphoria, I went online and did some shopping and for some reason, I bought a radio controlled truck. It was cheap (luckily) but it is large and has six wheels.

    I have no idea why I decided to buy the thing but, in hind-sight, it probably wasn't such a bad idea. I can turn it into a Demiurg super-heavy transport .

    The truck is the one on the left and the image on the right is of the shape I quite like... but obviously, the vehicle will be MUCH larger . I reckon I can turn it into something quite interesting... with the added bonus that it will be able to move around under its own steam :

    I have now finished the third Demiurg (the leader):



    I have also started work on the army commander:

    Inso,

    Most impressive converting. Those Demiurg are some of the best I have seen.

    Cheers

    I did a bit of rooting about in storage boxes and have located the drones that I have assembled. 3 just need the bases doing and the other 3 need a lot more work. I have also started the three Demiurg troops for the next unit :



    I thought I may as well get on with the next 3 Demiurg, seeing as I am sculpting heads for the commander and his driver already... may as well do them all

    That's shaping up to be a cool looking force.

    Re: Demiurg using Kharadron Overlords.

    Cheers . The good thing is that the drones aren't converted and it's just a case of assembling and painting them... which makes a change from my usual army building routine. There's also a bit of decent variety between the models so it should keep me entertained a bit.

    Re: Demiurg using Kharadron Overlords.

    The first three drones are now re-based and have joined their Demiurg owners:



    I think that each of the drone squads will have six of these large drones in them, with a few aerial drones for spotting and shielding. I haven't decided on which aerial drones I will go for yet... so I will tick along with the big drones and Demiurg for now .

    You've actually sculpted Demiurg heads for them! Quite ingenious project, endowed with vision. It looks good so far. Keep it up!

    Re: Demiurg using Kharadron Overlords.

    Well it seems that things died a bit... so I have been trying to get the project moving by removing the need to sculpt every head. As a result, I decided to try using an old style, Mantic Steel Warrior head (now called militia) and this is what I ended up with:



    He is a standard mechanic/engineer and has the usual Anvil Industry weapons and pack. I think the large size of the helmet works very well and I am going to continue with a few more of these .

    Re: Demiurg using Kharadron Overlords.

    It's been a while but I have found some new motivation to continue with this little project .

    With that in mind, I will bring things up to date with the three more Demiurg:



    As with the others, there is a Mechanic/Engineer, a Leader and a Controller (in that order).

    These ones are for the Air Guild. The previous ones were part of the Earth Guild.

    The Air Guilders run space and air operations, the Earth Guilders run all ground operations and the Subterranean Guild run underground and sea operations. I will be adding more information very soon .

    The Demiurg Air Guilders are finished:



    There are more images of these, plus WIP pix of the drones I plan to use... and also a major upheaval that will have quite an impact on my hobby time... in this blog post :

    It'll certainly be a change and I am really looking forward to both learning something completely new and also taking on a very challenging role
