I was planning to convert some grotesques from those models as well.. (amung others).. But dang, I really like how you did them. You've given me ideas so I can have multiple units with ease now.. Thanks!

The Talos kit is an amazing source of coven bits. You get 5 heads per kit and countless little arms, spines and injectors.

It doesnt take much effort to come up with something superior to the official grot.

These are terrific Venkh, great conversions that easily look as good as the proppa Grote, if not better.

Lots of inspiration here, thanks very much for sharing!

I'm going to try something similar with my Talos bits and some Chaos Spawn I have lying around.

Wow, great inspiration indeed! Only thing that I find a little strange is the Flesh Gauntlet (?) on the first Grotesque - it's a little too big, isn't it? Then again, they're Grotesques, what is normal on them anyways... Smile

Do you guys know how many of the new Rat Ogres there are? I think it's two in the Isnald of Blood set and one pulling the Screaming Bell, right? Hmm, combining those with a Chaos Spawn (for the Aberration) we could have a nice looking squad of four monsters.

*starts brainstorming about possible poses and conversion ideas*

Unfortunately the ones in the plastic boxed set are terrible.

Yeah, the ones in the boxed set look really bad. As does the Chaos Spawn, really. I don't know if I can make them look good as a Grotesque, to be honest. Oh well...

Oh and Venkh, I didn't mention it at first, but I absolutely love the theme you gave your Grotesques - the Dreamer, the Chemist, etc. Oh and looking at those two, there is an Inception reference, haha. Smile

I hannt noted that myself.

The idea is that they are on their way to becoming pain engines

I agree on the arm thing. Ill sort it out tonight.

There is another Rat Ogre available in the Screaming Bell/Plague Furnace set. Isotope99 used it to great effect to create his Wrack Raider, seen over at BoLS, just after the new DE first came out

Much better, the Aberration.

Again, I see your Grotesques as Inspiration! Very well done. I will go on a similar route with mine.

That...
that is awe-inspiring. Presentation and all.

I was thinking of making Rat Ogres into Grotesques, but I didn't really have a concrete vision for how they should look. I now do.
