Display board progress:


Basic idea. Set up models and draw out basic idea



Extruded polystyrene cutting started



Mostly cut out and shaved down, now to glue down!

I like how the display board is shaping up. The rock formation has a great texture and looks really convincing

Whoa! Very well done: everyone does them, but this is the first Grotesque Vargheist/Crypt Horror conversion I've seen that I've liked. (It's not that the others are poorly done, it's just that they don't feel very "Dark Eldar" to me.)

@Calyptra thanks! :-)
I knew it would be a big task to undertake, but I wasn't keen on forking out $120 for 3 bigfoot models. They're 40 odd bucks a pop here in Australia

I'm with Calyptra. Many Crypt Horror conversions wind up as "Crypt Horror + Talos bits." It gives you a Grotesque that looks far more savage than Grotesques normally do. I can say this because I've done the same with my clawed fiend stand-in grotesque concept...except I WANT those models to look feral and bonkers.

YOUR grotesque's pose looks almost elegant, which is phenomenal, and I'm particularly blown away by how cleanly you've sculpted that foot. The talos arm also looks hideously large on the model, which works for me.

Great job! Show us more!

Dude!
Very cool, properly grotesque and yet as Mr Pink said strangely elegant at the same time. I wanted to add some grots into my army but like many I not sold on the "chapter approved" models and I've always felt the crypt horror convesions are better but not all the way right. Then you go and produce this and wow you've set the bar higher.
Long story short I'm jealous.

The other two i've got (not quite ready yet) aren't so elegantly posed, but will be equally grotesque Cool

Update:
No pictures of grotesques yet. Been doing commissions so here they are so far. Below you will see some salamanders terminators. All that is left is some freehand flame on the calf and i'll be doing some bulk rocks/lava bases.

Nice job with the grot conversion! They look great, better than mine. Your greenstuffing and choice of bit replacements is spot on.

I've realised I took a bunch of photos before my tournament the other month, but never uploaded the pics here.
Sorry if there are repeats!!

Why thank ye, friend!
I, too, like Sslyth. However, I wish they would swap their guns for rending of some sort.

Since this photo was taken, i've added some pure white in the staff's face and some white edge highlights on the parts that would catch that bright light.
Also, I must paint some hearts on the red cloth as per below;

Nex, have you allowed the La Danse Macabre to consume your soul?
