Hey guys, longtime lurker, sometime poster in the rules threads. Figured I'd share a project I have going on currently: building "updated" Khorne Lords of Battle!

I like the rules, and I liked the general outline and style of GW's "update" of the LoB into the "Lord of Skulls" - even if the 40k model was ridiculously armed with skull-cannons firing flaming skulls inside of skulls that explode into showers of skulls...

Anyhow, the concept was a pretty decent update of the old Lord of Battles, it was just too small, way overcosted, and I don't play 40K anymore anyhow, so the kit was more of a "hey, that's nice" discovery for 40K.

Ah, but Epic: Armageddon, that's a different story. I have a bunch of mostly-painted Iron Warriors, and I'd long figured that if I were going to adapt them back into a "Black Legion" list that Khorne's patronage made the most sense. I also want to reinforce the army with some Lost & the Damned at some point as well, so I'd been dreaming up how to convert the Lord of Skulls look into an epic scale Lord of Battles.

I had largely settled on Troublemaker Games ordinatus elements for the chassis, when the Adeptus Mechanicus line rolled out for 40K and I saw the Kataphrons. The idea percolated, and then Christmas hit and it was swiftly forgotten. I was looking for a bit of a break from painting up my Kingdom Death: Monster stuff last week though, and had a "hey, why not?" moment. A quick trip to eBay and a little digging through the bits box, and I give you Hans & Franz:

(6mm infantry for scale purposes)

Elements: 2 kataphron sprues (chassis, servitor torso), terminator assault cannon, chaos terminator power axe arms, berserker chainaxes & helms, spare knight paladin battle cannon barrels, assorted brass etch and Khorne symbols.

More to come as I get these guys fully based and painted, with other Chaos war engines lumbering along in their wake...

Ohhh thanks for the parts list. I've had my eye on making one of these fabulous guys. So glad they were there "to pump [claps], me up"!

Cool stuff, hard to tell where one kit ends and the other begins.

They are just superb conversions. They look far better than the old Lord of Battle. Looking forward to seeing them painted.

I haven't quite decided yet. I managed to finish the bases before heading out of town for the weekend.

Initially I'd planned to go with a traditional Khorne red & brass...

...But I could definitely see these crafted (imbued?) and gifted as a sign of solidarity between my Iron Warriors warband and a future allied World Eaters warband. I will play with ways of incorporating both color schemes: perhaps Iron Warriors metallics for the chassis and crimson & brass for the torsos and arms... The night is young (at least where I am)!

Necro'ing the heck out of my old modelling/painting thread from years back, rather than launching a new one.

I lost those two Lords of Battle somewhere in the last two moves. They went into storage in one apartment, and never came out. Oh well; they'll probably turn up again 2-3 years down the road, at which point I'll either finish painting them or find a new home for them ;)

Instead, I built myself another pair. Lots of mold lines to finish cleaning, and I still need to drill gun barrels, but here's the 2.0 versions:

Lords of Battle 2.0 v1

I still don't have a means of mounting 2 battle cannons on each of these that I'm comfortable with, although they might still end up with the ever-Orky crotch turret before I'm through.

In other news, I'm 90% done with my Iron Warriors (pictures to come after I finish detailing bases), and I'm finally adding some titan support:

ImageEA Ravager Titan WIP 01

I opted for Legio Suturvora from FW's 30K rulebooks; they went all-in with the Word Bearers at Calth, were betrayed, used roughly, and left behind to die as the star went nova... so I figure their remnants would have a lot of common cause with a warband from the IV Legion ;)

I still have to add more flames to the legs, codpiece, shoulders & carapace, but I'll finish that off when I get the Ferals to the same stage. I just barely got this guy to this state before I had to pack up my paints two weeks back, so I'll call that a win.

That tail is long enough to give it an extra attach in FF.

Looking forward to seeing the completed army at NEAT.
