Heya, I got a WIP count-as Baron Sathonyx, and so far I am quite happy with the results. But the question for me now is this: what head should I use to fit with the model? I would prefer something that screams 'SUPERHEROO!!!!!" when people look at him.

I will be sculpting a cape and would be buying a bunch of Hellions to finish the rest of my parts.

Not so found about the backbanners, but I like the skyboard.
Is it based on the older skyboard?

Nope it is based upon the Hellion skyboard. The plastic pieces that I used to pimp the skyboard are from the rudders of the Raider and also the chassis (shell?) of the Reavers.

And yeah, you are right. On second though I am not really fond of the back banner and also the current body. Need to find a more refined body for the Baron.

When I think of Baron, I always think of his kickass coat with the seer's bones within. I'd suggest some extensive use for greenstuff there, unless you can find a great alternative on a miniature. As for the head, I'd go for one of the more neutral/serious faced male Kabalite or Wych heads, then greenstuff the hair on.

It's a real shame there are no smug, self confident smirks among the available DE heads... those would be the best for such special characters and leaders.

You could look at my Baron to see if there are something you can get inspired from.

But it sure looks like a great start.

Great alternative for a cloak is WE Gladeguard cloaks.
I started to convert he Baron before, but after some armybuilding I ditched him.

Here´s some WIP-picture:
WIP Baron Sathonyx - Input needed for awesomeness Pbucket

Liked the cloak, since I only had to remove the quiver on the back, but I could keep the jewels as soulstones-trophies.

Not much work with greenstuff, just some smoothing out the cloak, rest is kitbashing.
Skull on chain from Hellions, and the bones on a rope is from the empire flagellants.

Alright, after some while playing with all the random part I have right now and some putty work I have Baron Mk II moving and operational.

I am now thinking whether I should add a hood to make it look like a Shadowseer or should I make that Troupe Master's 70's disco collar. Any ideas?

I like the idea of a hood. I also liked the banners though Wink

I love the skyboard, it looks very dangerous. There are some great details in this, I really like it. The only thing I don't like is you are trashing your Alienware machine Wink

Not thrashing, Pimping!

Like the cloak, but not the helmet. The helmet might look good with a hood.

Durp..... lol!

I will clean it I swear. Just that I tend to use it as a painting table as I like to listen to some music while I do my hobby stuff, and the tale is kinda small. Razz

I'd use the bare head from the Scourges.

Well, was using some putty for some drastic filling and some of the putty got stuck on the Baron's face. As I was trying to get it off the Baron I noticed a fun look and decided to go about sculpting a little more. Result?

I am rather fond of the Masked Rider look.
